Do you have the slightest clue that YOU think religion is a "bad idea" and should terefore be challenged?

<quoted text>Why do you atheists always ask the stupidest questions?

That has nothing to do with the fact that you are arguing against something you claim to be a non believer of.

Why?
You keep saying we are arguing against something we don't believe exists.

You keep trying to convince yourself that we argue against god.

I'm trying to make clear to you, thoroughly that infinitely dense skull of yours that we don't argue against god. We argue against religion.

Religion exists.

God does not.

Atheist bigotry exists as well, Aero.

Don't pretend like it doesn't.

You're doing an awful lot of shouting for something you claim to have no belief in.....
I would say that you can't possibly be this stupid, but that would be a lie.

So which part of ToE has been evidenced? If there's 100 parts to ToE,.005% of them have been evidenced. Why teach it as pure fact?

Thanks for proving my point. Religion gets kid gloves.

Criticize an economic idea? Ok.
Criticize a political idea? Ok.
Criticize a scientific idea? Ok.
Criticize a practical idea?
Criticize art or media? Ok.
Criticize a religious idea? "Why are you so intollerant?"

Religion has to make itself immune to criticism because it can't hold up to any.

Ya, and? Some atheists DO use their beliefs and push them on other people. Republicans push Democrats, Democrats push Republicans.

That's a free society, baby!

If you don't like it, oh well. That's the way it is.

You can't always get your way.

HA HA HA !!!!

You really don't know what you just wrote, do you? Here, I clarify it for you:

"we don't argue against god"

---then---

"Religion exists.
God does not."

If that ain't an argue against God, what is?

There are people that criticize just because they have hormonal or other physical issues. Nothing really constructive.

Topix atheists come to mind.

The Biblical story is mankind was cast out on his own after he got to big for his britches. The Creator was nice enough to make him some clothes before he threw man and the clothes out the door.

If man is so smart, why doesn't he solve that problem?

You must suffer from short-term memory loss. You said:

"Society is a mix of ideas. Some are good, some are bad. They all must be challenged. If someone says trickle-down economics is the best way to help the poor, people will stand up and say "That's crap." But in our country, religion gets a free pass. It shouldn't."

See that? "religion gets a free pass. It shouldn't."

That would require overturning the 1st Amendment.

Christianity cannot ban gay marriage. Christianity does not make the law. Society makes the laws, politicians make the laws, judges make the laws.

I know you need someone to blame, so you blame Christians because of what they've been taught through Christianity, but that just isn't true.

Why? Because as soon as God is not responsible for something, God is no longer omnipotent. Pretty simple. What is not under God's control?

[QUOTE]You are infinately more powerful than an ant. Are you resposible when they get flooded out & die when it rains? Is it your fault they're too ignorant to not make a home outdoors?


A few small problems with your example: I'm not "infinitely" more powerful than an ant, nor did I create the ant, or it's environment, or indeed the entire universe.
