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.

Just also posted this on the PTAG thread:

Georgia Republican congressman Paul Braun said in videotaped remarks that evolution, embryology and the Big Bang theory are "lies straight from the pit of hell," meant to convince people that they don't need a savior.

Perhaps not surprising. But here's the clincher. Braun is on the House Science and Technology Committee.

Peachy, eh?

Let's see who here speaks up in support of the congressman's remarks.

Are you there, Dave?

So what if a congressman thinks that, Catch. It IS his right to believe so.
Do you think you're really on to something there?

That's good ol''merica for you. The sad thing is, while not many will exactly jump at the opportunity to support him, this will probably not hurt his political career, and it may even help him.

It is his right to believe whatever nonsense he wants, but do you really think it is appropriate for a man in a leadership position to behave in such a polarizing manner? Especially one who sits on the science and tech committee? Do you think that the US should be a theocracy? Do you think that we should allow the personal beliefs of our leaders to hold back the overall progress of science and tech, something that benefits all people?

You're absolutely correct, if Congressman Paul Braun chooses to be ignorant, that is his right.

It is also the right of any and all others to point out that ignorance.

When all is said and done, IMO, we do the best we can to make sense of what seems to be insanity. Then we believe what we want to believe, whether that's in 'something' or 'nothing'.

My pastor found out about this and our entire GODLY congregation has been worshiping at this altar. Our LORD loves TRUE Christians so much that he makes it easy to find Him on our pets' rears. Atheists' pets don't receive such GRACE from Jesus Christ Hisself. Glory!

Nothing that was said in response to that post was an example of bigotry.

That you think it was, is an example of ignorance.

Why would you, given that evolution is part and parcel of science? Or do you have something against science?

When did it become "bigotry" to point out irrational thinking?

You are completely wrong when you accuse Braun of thinking. He has never had a clear thought in his life. He runs strictly on faith.

Are you in agreement with Congressman Braun's views?

Would you support him if he was running in your Congressional district?

Let's hope Dave stays somewhat sober tonight.

He was a gas last night.
