Atheist Islamophobia... Again

Apr 9, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Religion Dispatched

Sparked by a Richard Dawkins tweet , in which he drew a parallel between Islamists and Nazis, Nathan Lean recently suggested on Salon.com that the most famous representatives of the new atheism "flirt with" Islamophobia [echoing Chris Stedman's prescient warning to fellow atheists on RD this past August]. As the article explains, Dawkins, Hitchens ... (more)

BRIAN GREENE:
As we reach the big bang, when the universe was both enormously heavy and incredibly tiny, our projector jams. Our two laws of physics, when combined, break down.

S. JAMES GATES, JR.: The laws of nature are supposed to apply everywhere. So if Einstein's laws are supposed to apply everywhere, and the laws of quantum mechanics are supposed to apply everywhere, well you can't have two separate everywheres.
Yes, so our laws of physics are still incomplete, they still got us to the Moon. Prayer has done nothing for us.

Poor ticky. Wants some real attention but can't think on his own.
so no answer then....
if you understand this stuff you copy and paste, why can't you answer even one single question about it?

could you even explain what you copy in your own words? if you can't, you cannot say you really understand it...(which we all know you don't...)

c'mon, it'll be fun! give it a try...just once use your own thoughts. we could use the laughs.

Praying is basically spell-casting.

It traces directly back to the old pagans idea that they can manipulate the very cosmos, with their own will.

By doing various ritual sayings and behaviors.

Even now, all modern praying has similar rituals and words you are required to say, to fulfill the spell-casing components.

It's still a selfish desire to change the very universe to fit your own will.

Sickening, really.

In case you haven't noticed, I haven't been on here for at least a week and unlike you, I don't feel the need to project hatred onto everyone who may disagree with me. No spells, either, as I tend to just say "Thank you". Have you got it straight now about me not endorsing the Shroud?

"Capitalization Rules
There are many rules to capitalization. Most people know the basics of capitalization such as capitalizing the first letter of the first word at the beginning of a new sentence, but when is capitalization appropriate in other situations? Outlined below is a comprehensive guide providing rules and examples to proper capitalization.

Holy Bible

- Names for the Bible Capitalize all names for the Bible, for parts and versions of the Bible and all names of other sacred books.

Examples:
Bible -Scriptures -Word of God -Holy Bible -Old Testament -New Testament
-Gospels -Ten Commandments -Lord's Prayer -Gospels -Gospel of Luke
-King James Version
- Creeds and Confessions

Capitalize all names of creeds and confessions of faith and general Biblical terms.

Examples:
-Lord Supper - the Apostles Creed
-the Westminster Catechism -Nicene Creed

- Deity - Capitalize all names for Deity

Examples:
-Father -Almighty -God -Lord -Holy Spirit -Son of Man
-Messiah - Lord of Hosts -Redeemer -Savior - Holy Trinity

"Indeed, it would be rather juvenile to misspell God simply in order to insult theists. If such an atheist had so little respect for another person, why even waste the time writing to them in the first place, much less deliberately trying to hurt them at the same time? While that may actually be the case with some atheists who write the word 'god' with a lowercase 'g,' "

http://atheism.about.com/od/doesgodexist/a/ca...

"The use of capitalization, as for a proper noun, has persisted to disambiguate the concept of a singular God, specifically the Christian God, from pagan deities for which lower case god has continued to be applied, mirroring the use of Latin deus. Pronouns referring to God are also often capitalized and are traditionally in the masculine gender, i.e. "He", "Him", "His" etc. However, some people have referred to God in feminine terms, such as "She" and "Her". "

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/God_ (word)

"god- Lowercase this when used as a prefix. Examples: godchild, goddaughter, godfather, godlike, godliness, godmother, godsend, godson, godspeed. Do not hyphenate
gods and goddesses

Capitalize God and similar names of the deity of a monotheistic religion: Allah, God, God the Father, Holy Ghost, Holy Spirit, Jehovah, Jesus Christ, the Redeemer, the Son of God, the Son of Man, Yahweh.

Capitalization

Sacred Writings/God/Religions:

God, Allah. The rules about pronouns referring to the deity vary; some reference works state that "He" or"His" or "Thee" are capitalized whenever "God" is capitalized. Some writers always put the pronouns in lower case. Check with your professors about their requirements.

Proper names of gods are capitalized: Krishna, Hera, Odin.

That hate you think I'm "projecting"?

Is simply valid criticism of your ugly and hate-filled religious beliefs.

You think it's hate, because my just criticism of your religion makes you really mad-- and you hate me for that.

You are literally awash in a hate-cult so deep, you don't even realize how much hate you show, when you talk about it.

Sad.
