Quote# 35412

I think you've got it backwards. Atheism is a religion which is trying to pull the wool over our eyes by pretending its doctrines are affirmed by evolution, thus giving us the FALSE illusion that Atheism = Science. In this endevour, they seek to monopolize evolution as their own, which is completely arbitrary.

No atheism is a personal belief that deals with a lack of a belief a deity(s), and that's it.

Seriously, I'm just going to keep all of my answers in a word file and cut and paste them. I only need about 10 of them.

Atheist - one who believes that there is no deity
Religion - the service and worship of God or the supernatural

No Atheist that I've ever met has stated that Atheism=Science. Many Christians believe in evolution, however they are obviously not "true Christians(TM)" as they don't believe exactly what you believe in.

And why the hell would we want to "monopolize evolution"?

"I think you've got it backwards. Atheism is a religion which is trying to pull the wool over our eyes by pretending its doctrines are affirmed by evolution, thus giving us the FALSE illusion that Atheism = Science."

Atheism =/= Science or Evolution you twit. Atheism = non-belief in one or more deities.

"In this endevour, they seek to monopolize evolution as their own, which is completely arbitrary."

Fundies don't seem to want to adopt evolution so we atheists may as well take it in. It's not my fault we're monopolizing it because a bunch of religious nuts refuse to accept reality.

Are you trying to claim evolution to support you religion?

huh?

The only people I know of who claim science = atheism = religion are fundies.

Dictionaries are very helpful for learning the definitions of words.

No, atheism is a complete lack of religion. What is so hard about this concept?

2/24/2008 6:21:18 AM



... simply lacking the belief in a deity.

You don't believe in Thor, Zeus, Odin, Hastur, Ra, Tiamat and all their other friends do you?

We just have one extra name on that list compared to yours.

Atheism is not a religion.

The ToE doesn't necessarily affirm my lack of belief in God, but when combined with the evidence and lack of evidence for your God, it doesn't half help.

As an atheist, I am not under any delusion that atheism = science. Many atheist have crack-pot ideas, they just don't have the crack-pot idea that God exists.

Three strikes, you're out.

Look, Dreidel, we're willing to share the TOE. You are perfectly welcome to incorporate science into whatever religion you practice.

I must warn you, though. Rational thought and religion are completely incompatible. Start down that slippery slope and you'll find yourself in the clutches of reality. Your religion would be doomed to oblivion.

Science is like that, I'm afraid.

Please give me the location of one...just ONE...atheist church/temple/mosque. I'll make it even easier and also accept an evolutionist church/temple/mosque.

One caveat: naming schools or scientific establishments of any kind doesn't count. It must be a place dedicated to worship, created by and/or for atheists and/or evolutionists.

Just ONE...anywhere on the planet.

Can't do it, can you? Wanna know why? Because the word "atheist" literally means "without god." And evolution is a scientific theory, not a religious dogma. So you won't find churches to either of them because they ARE NOT RELIGIONS.

We're not trying to monopolise evolution. We would gladly share it with you if you weren't sticking your fingers in your ears and shouting "DO NOT WANT!"

Well, I suppose... if you completely redefine the English language.

Atheism isn't evolution, or a religion, or science. It's a denomination for the people who don't believe in God. Why is it so hard for you to understand?

You keep using words... I don't think they mean what you think they mean

They are unable to conceive the ability to imagine not having the need to worship. Okay let's try that again. They can't imagine not needing to worship. They need to believe in something bigger than themselves in complete control over everything because they are afraid. Afraid of life. Afraid to stand on their own two feet. After awhile a human parent will tell the child to get down and walk. These people are in a state of perpetual spiritual infancy.

For the Nth time,

Atheism is not a religion, it is an absence of religion.

Evolution in fact all of science does not and can not prove the existence or non-existence of God.

All science does is make the Bible look rather silly, which is what pisses fundies off.

Aaargh! Repeat after me: ATHEISM. IS. NOT. A. FUCKING. RELIGION!!!

I don't have the illusion that atheism=science, as I know many religious people, even Christians, that accept that evolution is a valid theory. The Pope John Paul II himself said that evolution was compatible with faith, and why not? Its just a matter of realizing that your 'holy book' is a collection of parables and not literal history, much like pagan mythology.
