I am NOT talking about killing people for beliefs, I'm talking about killing them for their actions.

Terrorists and terrorism cannot be allowed, too many innocent people are murdered because of it.

Do you really think anyone is going for a loophole? An Axe maybe.
Our generation won't see it but eventually this world is headed for neurosisville. An axe won't do much good when there is no food or fuel, or none that most people can afford. And when that happens I'm sure masturbation will be the least of anyone's worry, I was just making a point that people's lives will likely get interfered with one way or another and religion will also become least of anyone's worry .

But it isn't sex. Kids go where the parents go. They gonna get a babysitter just because they want to go to the park or the grocery store or the church? And then the kids choose whether they want to continue going once they grow up. I quit going.

You're contradicting yourself.
How so? Not that I care that much, but I don't see the contradiction. If you could eradicate religion you would. Until you can, you try convincing them to walk away. Where's the contradiction?
Our chief assets are the church and the media that show it to the world. Our words wouldn't mean a thing without that. Without that, we probably wouldn't know how horrible the church is ourselves. I wouldn't. I learned much of what I know about theists right here on Topix. How would I know what religion has done to them without Internet message boards?
So, IOW it doesn't affect your life at all. Western religion must really be a monster then if you wouldn't have even known about it without the media. I don't like how so many big evangelists are making millions from preaching and claiming to cure the blind, but there are crooks around every corner. At least it's not outright stealing. You can't take away someone's right to go to church, oh wait, that's right, you don;t want to take away their right to do so, you just want to reverse-evangelize them.

Interesting story. I'm sorry, I shouldn't have assumed your parents were Christian, you never specified. I was wrong.

Are you literally saying that your dad beat you? Is that a norm where you're from or was your dad an oddball? Is there any way you can get out of that country you hate? In America, you're free to follow whatever religion you want or no religion at all. We have a true freedom of religion here.

What do you mean you look the other way if they have a religious way of seeing things? Would you not help a poor man if he told you he was Christian or Muslim?

Einstein recognized the impossibility of a non-created universe.

Newton said: "The most beautiful system of the sun, planets, and comets, could only proceed from the counsel and dominion on an intelligent and powerful Being."

William Kelvin was a committed Christian.

Sir Francis Bacon was a Christian, he said: "It is true, that a little philosophy inclineth man’s mind to atheism, but depth in philosophy bringeth men's minds about to religion; for while the mind of man looketh upon second causes scattered, it may sometimes rest in them, and go no further; but when it beholdeth the chain of them confederate, and linked together, it must needs fly to Providence and Deity."

Copernicus, Galileo, Descartes, Pascal, Boyle,Faraday, Mendel and Planck were all Christian men, and geniuses in their own right.

Why can't you have a damned honest debate? Why do you have to lie about me? Is it your atheism that drives your dishonesty or is it something else?

I never said that about Muslims and you know it.

I'm sorry you had to go through that, but many people are that way whether religion seems to be behind it or not. I was abused by my step-grandmother and it had nothing to do with religion. I even had to poop when she said I should, not according to what my body was doing and I would get beat until I pooped. That was only one out of many things I would get beat for. There are a lot of sick people out there. My dad was a tyrant and still tries running everyone's life in the family. It had nothing to do with religion.

I don't think religion is the root cause. I think there is something deeper within the human psyche that cause this sickness. They would be 'controlling' with or without religion.

My dad is Serbian. Serbs are Orthodox and Croatians are Catholics. They have been at odds with eachother for centuries. So much hatred and bloodshed. Why? Do they really care that the other crosses themselves in a different fashion? No, I'm sure not. It's passed on from generation to generation, kids pick it up the hate from their parents and don't even stop to think why they hate. It's a crazy world, religion or not. Just my two sense.

Is the Gaza conflict all about religion or is it just blamed on religion? They would be fighting over that land anyways. Just that the Book makes it more "justified".

That's an interesting line though. The atheists on this thread should note your implication that Christian parents can be ideal in comparison to Muslim parents. I still say that the human psyche is prone to madness whether religion is in existence or not.

Maybe not directly, but that's basically what it comes down to..Belief! I agree with you, some people have to be "Dealt" with, The Diversity of Religions and each "Branch" thinking they have the Truth, is always gonna clash with someone else's Truth.. People have been Fighting and Killing for that Truth for Millenia, and for what? A Lie? It's about Greed and Power.. Control..Control of God! Each "Branch" Labeling God as the Just.

Killing in defense of oneself or another who is incapable of self-defense is justifiable when the threat of serious bodily harm or death is obvious and imminent.
