Re: Conversation all rapped up!?!?
Dear Dr Adequate,

“Can you provide some context for your quote?
Of course not...”

I love when someone asks me a question and, presuming I can’t answer it myself, proceed to answer it for me.

Since you seam to have this conversation all rapped up; I’ll let you do both sides of it.

Sure. In that case you apologize to everyone for ripping a quote out of context in order to create a false impression; you promise us never to do it again; and you thank us for the valuable lesson in intellectual integrity.

Re: Atheism!?!? + Jainism
Not mine, I did not come up with the definition; nor did I tell them what to say or think. I simply quoted what they themselves have said. I you’re not happy with there definitions or ideas I’m sure they would not mind you giving them your two cense.

Who are "they"? Does Lewontin, who was not talking about atheism, have a mouse in his pocket?

Or are you so dishonest as to pretend that when Lewontin, who is one person, was not talking about atheism, he was in fact all atheists talking about atheism?

Re: The religion of Atheism !?!?!?
Would you please stop formatting your posts like you're a crazy person?

Much of what you say, while wrong, is at least sane. You may be a creationist, but you're not actually mentally ill. But you present it as though you've gone off your head.

Re: It is, but it isn’t !?!?!?
So, let me see if I understand what you're saying. I want to make absolutely certain I’m not putting words into your mouth.

You’re saying that the Government “judiciary” treats ‘atheism’ as “a religion”; and even though you agree with that; it, in no way, makes ‘atheism’ a ‘religion’?

You agree is should be treated as “a religion”; but not called “a religion” even though it fits the definition of “a religion”?

Have I got it right this time?

Nearly, apart from the bit where you say it fits the definition of “a religion”.

Obviously, atheism is not really a religion. However, for the purposes of interpreting the First Amendment it ought to be treated as one --- for example, it should be illegal for public school teachers to indoctrinate children with atheism. Atheist opinions should not be given a free ride with respect to the Establishment Clause just because atheism is technically not a religion. It would be every bit as wrong to establish atheism as to establish Christianity or Islam or Hinudism.

Re: The "religion" of atheism
As I said to Dr. Adequte: I love it when someone asks me a question and, presuming I can’t answer it myself, proceed to answer it for me.

Since you seam to have this conversation all rapped up; I’ll let you do both sides of it.

I guess that we're good with that. So what you are going to say now is, first, that the word "Adequate" has another "a" in it, between the "u" and the "t"; second, that you meant "seem" rather than "seam"; third, that you meant to say "wrapped" rather than "rapped"; and fourth, that creationism is is a load of fatuous garbage and you're sorry for wasting everyone's time by talking nonsense.

You're welcome.

I think ORGANISED religion should be banned altogether, you wanna pray and and accept jesus as your savior be my guest but do it at home dont go selling your religion at mass, or on tv and then laugh how gullable those idiots are for giving you their money. Or at least it should be TAXED hard. And a restraining order from schools at least one mile away.

Also we could throw 'em to the lions, it totally worked for Nero.

Re: Amazing
The evidence for Christianity being in the ‘Constitution of the United States of America’ is vested in the people who framed the Constitution; what they lived for, what they fought for; what they stood for, and who they were.

And apparently what they lived for, what they fought for, and what they stood for was not putting Christianity in the Constitution in any way, shape, or form. Which is why they didn't.

Re: ‘No Creation story/myth’ / ‘several Creation stories/myths?
Jar, please, listen to your self; first you say “there is no Christian Creation story. Note, that is singular. That is also a fact.”

So, according to you, there is no “Christian Creation story

Then you say “Christianity, Islam and Judaism have several creation myths (Stories)”

So which is it: ‘No Creation story/myth’ or ‘several Creation stories/myths’?
