Quote# 89837

Let's make a deal.
If I agree to keep my religion (Christianity) from our the public school system will you agree to keep your religion (Evolution/Atheism) out of the public school system.

What could be fairer than that?

"What could be fairer than that?"

Neither evolution nor atheism is a religion, jackass.

You can't just define things as religions. It doesn't work that way. Keeping out the religion of not having a religion? I beg your pardon? If the void is impermissible, with what do you purpose to fill it?

Ok, except evolution isn't a religion and you keep confusing atheism for secularism.

10/1/2012 11:06:46 AM

Well seeing as evolution is not a religion neither is atheism.

10/1/2012 11:10:55 AM


Sure; if you promise not to mention Christianity in any way, I promise not to mention atheism in any way.

Evolution is science, we cannot remove science from school, as it would not be a school anymore if we did.

You are equating mythology with the evidence of the senses, bonehead!

I'm looking forward to the next Biology lesson then.
Kid: "Sir, how did people get here? And how do animals change over time?"
Teacher: "I'm not allowed to tell you that, I'm afraid. I suggest you make up your own mind".

Interesting, I remember I posted a topic on the forums about creationism being taught in South Korean schools months ago.

Old Viking

When fundies want to disparage any form of organized knowledge, they refer to it as a "religion."

10/1/2012 1:47:43 PM


Evolution is not a religion, nor is atheism. For it to be a religion, it has to worship something and you cannot claim that either atheism or evolution worships anything without twisting the word to the point it loses all meaning.

Actually pal, we've already struck a deal:

If you agree to keep religion out of the public school system, then I'll agree to keep evolution and science out of your churches.

Seriously if you want your kids to learn about religion so badly, then stop being a lazy parent, get them out of bed on sundays and take them to church. Moron.

Evolution is science and will continue to be an observable fact, no mater how much you may disparage the idea. Christianity, on the other hand, is a religion based on superstition and unsubstantiated gobbledegook.

If you can't tell the difference, move to Iran.

China's state education system teaches Evolution. China's university research facilities are amongst other countries (Cuba, Japan, UK et al) at the forefront of Gene research. Evolution is all about subtle changes in DNA, and how such changes affect - and potentially improve a lifeform, relative to it's conditions/environment (among other factors).

Japan & the UK? We're not as obsessed about religion as you fundie nutty buggers are over there. Several years ago, a lab in the UK pioneered the generation of tissue via cloning of Stem Cells taken from a person's bone marrow, thus a Spanish woman was able to have a replacement windpipe transplanted, without any risk of rejection (as it's from her own body, natch). Cuba, who spend as much on healthcare as they do on defence? Atheist. The chances of finding a Cuban with bad teeth are as likely as, say... finding hen's teeth.

In Soviet China, God worships you.

Moral: You want to be inferior to China, you go right ahead, fundies in the US. Just as long as your fundie 'states' secede from the rest of the Union, who want to remain on Planet Reality, and keep the rest of the normal, sane non-fundie USA & it's people technologically ahead in terms of R&D.

How long then, before the wasteland that was the Fourth World 'country' of FundieInbredRedneckTeabaggerSisterfuckHicksville crawls back to the modern USA and bleats pathetically 'We were wrong! Take us back, please!'?

Oh My Dog!

Evolution is a scientific theory supported by facts.

Atheism is lack of belief in deities.

Religion is belief in deities, the exact opposite of atheism.

Please buy a dictionary, and learn the meaning of words before you use them.

@Anon-e-moose, How long then, before the wasteland that was the Fourth World 'country' of FundieInbredRedneckTeabaggerSisterfuckHicksville crawls back to the modern USA and bleats pathetically 'We were wrong! Take us back, please!'?

They'll never do that. They're too proud to admit they're wrong, and too crazy to realize it. They'll become terrorists and attack us for our scientific Satanisms.

Sorry but contrary to your claim evolution is no more a religion than are erosion or tectonic uplft. Like these, it's a natural phenomenon we've directly observed to occur.

10/5/2012 8:26:28 AM


Idiot fundies. Idiot fundies everywhere.

Religionism: The belief that everything is a religion. Eating toast is a religion. Sleeping is a religion. Especially everything you hate is a religion.
Used by fundies in an immature attempt to annoy atheists, since fundies are already on the losing side of every argument.
