Atheist Islamophobia... Again

There are 3766 comments on the Religion Dispatched story from Apr 9, 2013, titled Atheist Islamophobia... Again. In it, Religion Dispatched reports that:

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)

Rather Nazi like thinking, you aren't even human.
What a travesty for a poster to write.
Is it any wonder Qunatum-Bot does disservice to Atheism.
The fine art of sarcasm has escaped you once again. LOL

Why are you in IRRELIGIOUS forums?
What do you expect to accomplish?
Have you met with any success so far?
Have you been able to convert anyone?
Why do you feel atheists threaten your faith?

Just curious which cult is yours?
Sell me on your belief...

You may begin proselytizing now... ;)

First question to ask your guy...

Is he the exact identical same deity worshiped by Jews Christians and Muslims?

and in the United Kingdom you seem to have lost?
he Lords Spiritual
26 bishops of the Church of England sit in the House of Lords. Known as the Lords Spiritual, they read prayers at the start of each daily meeting and play a full and active role in the life and work of the Upper House.
This section provides information about their historic and present role, and details of the current occupants of the Bishops' Benches.
The continuing place of Anglican bishops in the Lords reflects our enduring constitutional arrangement, with an established Church of England and its Supreme Governor as Monarch and Head of State.
Although there are 44 dioceses in the present-day Church of England, the Bishopric of Manchester Act of 1847 limited the number of places for Lords Spiritual to 26. In the Upper House today the 26 Lords Spiritual constitute around 3.5% of its membersh.
The Archbishops of Canterbury and York and the Bishops of Durham, London and Winchester are ex-officio members of the House of Lords. The remaining 21 places on the Bishops' Bench are not determined by diocese, but are occupied by those English diocesan bishops that have served the longest.
When bishops retire from their see (compulsory at 70), their membership of the House also ceases. Occasionally some have become life peers, and this is usually the case for former archbishops.
USA has no Bishops in the United States Senate!

One wonders how they can profess to be disciples of both Jesus and Ayn Rand at the same time. One would think their heads would explode from cognitive dissonance.

Possibly Bobs post of "..you aren't even human any more..."
does not remind you of the Nazis.
For lurkers it may be another matter.
Atheists post are examined for their logic.
Telling another poster "..you aren't even human any more..." seems to cross the line.
You may find it humorous...
We find atheism humorous, so keep your sense of humor

LOST influence in the House of Lords

26 bishops of the Church of England sit in the House of Lords. Known as the Lords Spiritual, they read prayers at the start of each daily meeting and play a full and active role in the life and work of the Upper House.

In the US we have a secular society with respect for diversity.
There are not 26 Bishops sitting in the US Senate, our upper house.

The "rib" in the Bible, Genesis, mean DNA, dude!

God took DNA from Adam and used to make Eve, surprise!

See? You are so ignorant that you ignorantly did not know that the word used in the original Hebrew was "Helix" which was understood as "curve"!

So the translators read "God took of Adam's helix/curve to make Eve"

They did not know about DNA so they assumed the ONLY "curve" looking thing in Adam's body: A Rib.

Did you know that math is the language of God?

The Babylonian captivity ended in the spring of 536 B.C.E., 1st
Nisan. This date is the starting point for our calculations. The
period of worldwide captivity would last 2,520 biblical years x
360 days = 907,200 days. Converting this figure into our calendar
year we divide the 907,200 days by 365.25 to reach a total of
2,483.8 calendar years.(Remember that there is only one year
between 1 B.C.E. and 1 C.E.; there was no Year Zero). The end of
Israel's worldwide captivity would occur after a total of 2,483.8
years had elapsed from the end of the Babylonian Captivity in the
spring of 536 B.C.E.

End of Babylonian Captivity: Spring 536 B.C.E.+ the duration of
Worldwide Captivity: 2,483.8 Calendar Years = When the Worldwide
Captivity would end: Spring 1948.

The Rebirth of Israel: May 14th 1948

It is impossible for anything on Earth to 'align with Orions belt' because:
1. The Earth rotates
2. Orion is not and has never been a circumpolar constellation.
