Should Uninformed Opinion Be Respected?

Each day may be a vacation from hatred, a chance to meet new friends of different beliefs and enjoy life with those with whom we care.

Babies don't need a vacation, but I still see them at the beach... it pisses me off! I'll go over to a little baby and say 'What are you doing here? You haven't worked a day in your life!':-)

Should indoctrination and brainwashing of defenseless children with unscientific and unsubstantiated faith-based nonsense that is little more than witchcraft superstition be considered informed opinion?
Informed opinion deserves a certain amount of respect. Continuation of Hebrew myth that is historically, archaeologically and scientifically lacking does not. Being politically correct where religion is concerned is dangerous to all societies.
Lol. OK, where did the universe come from if there was no God? You won't be able to answer. Until you prove that the Big Bang happened and could come from nothing, you may only disrespect us on the internet, knowing it's pretty much illegal to go out on the streets dissing religious people.

So, science doesn't have all the answers therefore Brahma created everything?

Correct?

Reading the Guardian ..... this recently posted

The level of threat from international terrorism to Britain has been raised from substantial to severe, Theresa May, the home secretary, has announced.
This means that an attack is "highly likely", though May said there is no evidence to suggest an attack is imminent.
She said the decision to raise the official threat level is "related to developments in Syria and Iraq, where terrorist groups are planning attacks against the west".
The home secretary said some of the plots were likely to involve foreign fighters who had travelled to the Middle East from Britain and Europe to take part in the conflicts there.
Her announcement is expected to be followed shortly by a Downing Street statement by David Cameron.

<quoted text>You should learn the Arabic religions history. Islam is Judaism tweaked, Christianity is Judaism tweaked. The god of Abraham is Allah tweaked, the god of Abraham is Jehovah tweaked, the god of Abraham Yahweh, is a tweaked Pagan god.
Christianity and Islam sprang from Judaism, and Judaism incorporated Pagan ritual to get Pagan converts. Like all religions it was done to better fill the wallets of those liaisons to the gods, you know all the Rabbis, priests, Imams, spell casters, preachers, ministers and witch doctors.
Jewish truth At age 3 years and one day, a toddler girl was old enough to become a wife to a Hebrew man.
Christain truth, a Christain girl could be sold into sexual slavery, thereby making money for her father.
Muslim truth any boy or girl (even newborns) can be thighed* by a Islamic man, and it is not even glanced at unless the girl child is injured enough to require surgery.
All three religions begin indoctrination in very early childhood and all three require you to stone sinners, and to kill those who are not of the same "ism", and in war, to kill all non-virgin females.
*Look it up. BTW: Did you know that Jehovah will make you cook and eat your children?
It's all just so nasty.
The desert religions (Jews,{God's chosen people}, Muslims and 4k + iterations of Christian cults are the worst disaster in human history.

If I had to select one from the smorgasbord of available religions, I would choose Jainism.
(altogether, not a bad concept), but I am entirely too skeptical and cynical.

I agree with uncle Al on this one...

Yip. I will admit, I can't be sure I believe in the right God, but I can be sure there is a God, whether it's Allah, Buddha or the Christian God, there is a God. The reason is. "Nothing only makes...Nothing".

I used to be Creationist - its ok to not be sure - its very common amongst cult members that have been lied to about god.

We both know there's no such thing as god, so lets give up playing pretend.

But here is the problem: there is no all powerful compassionate god because there is evidence of avoidable suffering.

So if god exists, why worship *that*?

Don't be bitter Patrick, we really don't care.
:-/

unlike the rabidly religious, we do not 'hate' people for not agreeing with our viewpoint.

If anything we are amused at the comments in these forums, for me that's about it.

I must admit I do take a certain amount of pleasure in "throwing a monkey wrench" into their deeply held beliefs; then, like you, enjoying a wonderful cup of coffee.

One question for you I have only been in your country three times and then only at the airports awaiting a connecting flight elsewhere.

Does it rain all the time in England or British Isles?

Film worth viewing?
Film noir - D.O.A w/Edmund O'Brien

Try reading this after enjoying you're film

"bury my heart at wounded knee"
By Dee Brown

Immediately recognized as a revelatory and enormously controversial book since its first publication in 1971.

I believe you have the kind of intellect that would really enjoy this book, over coffee, of course.:-)

I never "pretended" , I merely replaced 'revelation' with investigation. That proved sufficient!

It is also fair to admit that I've never 'had' any religion. I was not raised to believe in fairytales, instead my parents gave me books and the education they had enjoyed, put me through college, and gave me my shot at life in the world outside our home.
