Religion = superstition
It's divisive and nothing but trouble.
First off , if it were just superstition it wouldn't incite freethinkers into such apoplectic fits of rage ...

You go through great lengths to find obscure news reports ..

You have to admit * Atheism * is a religion , you have an agenda which you work tirelessly to promote .

Antipathy towards God is an illogical but understandable reaction, sadly.

If atheism is true, then nothing should matter to them. There should be no hatred of God, there shouldn't even be a discussion of God. How can they discuss something they claim to not believe in? Why is there so much hostility? If God doesn't exist, why don't the atheists just kick back and have a good time before they become plant food?

Technology is not science.

One of the mistakes many people make in thinking about science is to confuse it with technology. As a result, science often either receives undue credit (for the "miracles of modern science" in one's kitchen) or undue blame (for everything from overly firm tomatoes to nuclear war). In fact, science doesn't make things. Scientists developed the understanding of radiation sufficient for the invention of the microwave oven, but neither making a microwave oven nor using it are science. Scientists are in the business of generating knowledge, whereas engineers are in the business of generating technology.

People doing science often use sophisticated technology, but science doesn't require it. Our ecologist observing natural bird behavior and our geologist examining an outcrop neither use particularly sophisticated technology. In fact, the only technology in common to all science is the notebook in which observations are recorded.

In short, science often leads to technology, and it often uses technology, but it isn't technology, and in fact it can operate quite independently of technology.

Here you go again, only with more words.

We don't argue against god. We argue against the fundies who would force us to live by their belief in god.
