What do you think an Atheistic world will look like?

Since proportional to their representation in the general population there are far fewer atheists in prison than Christians, the world would be a safer place.

You have all the classic fundamentalist Christian misperceptions.

(maybe this should be a new topic...)

You'd be all over the place in that topic, too.

Maybe you could get, polygamist Atheists...

To paraphrase Nobel prize winner Steven Weinberg, good people will do good and bad people will do bad, but for good people to do bad, that takes religion.

What's your fascination with polygamist atheists (again, not capitalized - it's not a relgion)? The only polygamist groups I've heard of are Christian.

You're either a POE or a YEC (crazy as can be)

I am still new to this forum, could you please explain these acronyms?

YEC = Young Earth Creationist. This is someone who believes that the Earth was created by God a few thousand years ago.

To call someone a POE is to call them a fraud. The term is derived from a statement by Nathan Poe, now known as Poe's law and quoted below

quote:
Without a blatant display of humor, it is impossible to create a parody of extremism or fundamentalism that someone won't mistake for the real thing

At times when reading your posts I have difficulty believing someone could be so naive without deliberate effort. It is only your willingness to acknowledge error that convinces me otherwise.

That material is ancient.

It's also hilarious. I'm going to resist the urge to quote from it here.

Edited by NoNukes, : No reason given.


Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also in prison. Thoreau: Civil Disobedience (1846)

I believe that a scientist looking at nonscientific problems is just as dumb as the next guy.
Richard P. Feynman

If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom, and deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground, they want rain without thunder and lightning. Frederick Douglass
