Why do people not believe in God?

Is relies on both deduction and induction built on unprovable axioms (just as religion). Tell me who observed "dark energy", "dark holes" "tectonic plates", "space time", "snares" ? These "things" exist in the metaphysical roam of scientific fantasy. You say "science relies". But it is HUMANS that rely on scientific knowledge and 99,999% is based on hearsay. Scientists are not free to create new theories but only within a paradigm (a belief system) that blocks out other representations. Otherwise they are outcastsYour quantum-faith prevents you from handling this discussion in an open-minded, unbiased, objective manner.  (Oct 23, 2010 | post #13228)

You deny that the major source of knowledge is authority both in science and religion? godbot behavior? That is a cheap tactic to discredit the person rather than his arguments. Again you lose.  (Oct 22, 2010 | post #13209)

Whether criminals excuse their actions by an ideology or lust or greed, the law is the same for everybody. The same way, your denial of religious rights to others is a criminal offence. The law does not care what the little voice in your head says.  (Oct 22, 2010 | post #2852)

Exactly, our law goes for Muslims too, that is why this not an issue. What they do in other countries is not our affair.  (Oct 22, 2010 | post #2829)

You lost because instead of trying to defeat my argument, you launched a personal attack.  (Oct 22, 2010 | post #13182)

Why do people stereotype Marines?

By wearing the uniform they are stereotyped as protecting their country. Like a policeman is stereotyped as protecting the law.  (Oct 22, 2010 | post #24)

Caucasians are Neanderthal-Sapien hybrids.

I find that hard to answer. Something like the eyes of a consciousness that is essentially undivided.  (Oct 21, 2010 | post #65)

Here people are free to envision God as they like. Only Iran and the Vatican can be called true theocracies, in Israel and Saudi Arabia there is a division of power.  (Oct 21, 2010 | post #2813)

If we gave up religious freedom, extremists would surely have won. Our constitution is based on reason not emotion, lets keep it that way.  (Oct 21, 2010 | post #2812)

This argumentation is why it would be wrong to give in. Authorities would give the impression they would be religiously biased, which is unconstitutional.  (Oct 21, 2010 | post #2811)

They bring in arguments on religious grounds, those are inappropriate.  (Oct 21, 2010 | post #2805)

The constitution was made to prevent what some want: unequal treatment of individuals on religious grounds. The majority of Americans is strongly behind the constitution.  (Oct 21, 2010 | post #2804)

The law forbids people, not Muslims, beating their wives. The cultural part is irrelevant. Ownership rights can pass to children.  (Oct 21, 2010 | post #2803)

That is irrelevant, we do not judge people by the law in their countries of origin, only by our law on their actions here.  (Oct 21, 2010 | post #2793)
