Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Never said science was always right. It's not like it's religion or something.
The term is climate change, and if you can't find evidence of it, it's only because you don't want to.
I'll bet you think trickle down economics is working, too.
Did you know that the term "Greenhouse Effect" was coined by a man named Joseph Fourier, way back in 1824?

Just a couple corrections to many idiotic claims you make.
The very first verse noted the Big Bang, a beginning point for the universe, 5,000 years before atheists caught up.
The very first chapter noted life coming from the earth and beginning in a genderless form.
This info was recorded by Moses as dictated by the Alien visitor who prophecied a band of former slaves would survive no matter what and become the greatest culture on earth.
Does that answer your question?

Yeah, that's why Nostradamus has so many followers.

As for sex being dangerous, just have safe sex. Everyone should. There ya go.

Not only are schools teaching safe sex, they're teaching sex to a crowd that is far too young. Thanks to the Liberals, they're handing out free condoms in school and demonstrating how to use them with phallic fruit. Not only that, 13-year-old girls can go get free abortions without their parents knowledge or consent, again thanks to the Liberals.

In my old church, it was always the individual that was responsible for their own actions. It was always the individual that took the blame, whether they listened to God's advice whether they listened to the devil's tricks.

I've always been taught, and I've always agreed, that every action we make is of our own doing and we all bear full responsibility for our actions, whether they're good or bad.

Yep and perpetrated by heterosexual males, in the majority that is.

Some heterosexual females are quite foul as well but they mostly just let their little girls get raped.

I like that our country provides for down and out single mums, they don't need to be that desperate for a man.

Nice backpedal, if I wasn't paying attention. You very clearly said that prayer is disruptive.

You then went on to imply that disruption in public school violates the United States Constitution.

Weird.

Would you rather have the 13 year old girl destroy her life and the life of the child through neglect and poverty, by being forced to become a mother?

Don't you think it would be much better if she did NOT become a mother at 13? Do you think a 13 yo boy makes a good supportive father? Who buys diapers, pays the doc and hospital, formula, food? Grandma and grandpa? Maybe they don't want to become parents again at close to retirement age.

If you think these kids are not experimenting with sex at that age, you are nuts. If a condom will stop 2 kids from a hell of a life, its worth it.

Jewish students can wear their yarmulke in the school which must provide kosher food.
Muslims can bring their prayer rugs and honor Allah at the prescribed times.

To ensure religious freedom... every school should provide chapels. mosques and whatever 'temporary holy place ' to support the fantasies of the faithful.

“Superstition does not belong in the place of learning.”

Here’s the problem with your statement. Atheism for some reason is accepting of the occult.

All Disney & children stories based on magic would be banned if that were the case. Neither would Harry Potter books would be allowed.

Of course all these books based on fantasy, superstition, folklore, and the occult are accepted in secular schools. But the Bible? Ohhhhh nooooo they can’t have the Bible. That would mean fairness and shelving the biases.

Hypocrisy doth abound my friend.

Weird.
The way I read the post, the point was that prayers that disrupt the educational process are not constitutionally protected, not that they violate the Constitution. The difference is not even all that subtle. Since they are not so protected, school policies that limit or forbid disruptive prayers are valid and may be enforced.

Saying grace at the cafeteria table is thus protected, while loudly reciting the 23rd psalm during math class is not. The student who does the former should be left alone while doing the latter can (and should) result in disciplinary action.
