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)

He probably went to one of those Christian colleges where science=God did it and philosophy consist of only buybull studies.

Nope, try again. I only took 3 hours of Philosophy for my General Studies requrements. I also took three hours of Art Appreciation for the same reason. Six hours of Psychology- same reason. Eight hours of Military Science- same reason. Knowledge seemed to make me curious for more knowledge, different knowledge. I also took three hours of Wood Technology and eight hours of a Fire Science class which earned me a EMT certificate. The only Colleges I took no classes in were Nursing and Business- at least of the offerings at my school. In short, your "probably" is wrong.

You did so claim to represent your god-- every time you wrote of what you insist your god is like, or is going to do, or what you claim your god disapproves of.
That is what representing means, doofus.
And?
You demonstrate your hate with nearly every post you post...
Ah, back to inventing your own definitions of words to fit your criteria- more 'patterning" bob.

Yes... I could see him doing that. A complete waste of time, those Genuine Christian™ "colleges".

Unless you are planning on becoming a televangelist, of course...

You are so ignorant, you actually think-- that ALL WORDS have ONLY ONE DEFINITION.

Wow... you ARE stupid.

Wrong again, bob- I know words can have more than one definition. I spent a bit of my childhood reading a set of encyclopedias and seguayed to Webster every now and then to clarify some fact. Also, your opinion isn't the yardstick of what constitutes intelligence, much as you would crave it were so. I think I'm going to simply refer to you as "sheldon"- that's the fictional joke of a character you remind me of.

Your knowledge of paleontology is severely lacking, sheldon, dinosaurs died out eons before Man trod the earth.

After you're brave enough to prove the god you're lying about, we'd all be converted.

I don't HAVE to prove anything friend, any more than you can stop demanding I do so. As soon as you realize that it isn't a matter of bravery, you'll realize that I have already figured out you're simply being deliberately belligerent about it- my goodness aren't you a brave brave internet ninja.

Prove it, sheldon. Prove it. Now you profess to tell people what they believe, how childish of you, sheldon. Thankfully you are also using childish rhetoric to prove me right yet again.
