Re: The God Delusion

Eh. You cleave to your cherished beliefs that are not supported by a shred of evidence and I will cleave to mine. Its a waste of time to crap all over he other person's unsupported beliefs since yo won't change their views. Let's just get the fundies out of power before they legislate state-sponsored religion once and for all.

Wow, what a wonderful way to start a thread. I'm sure this isn't going to get ugly

It's just sad that a person would devote their life's work to offending so many.

Do you feel the same way about Copernicus?? Einstein??* *I am not suggesting Dawkins should be thought of in this league, but he is trying to find truth. I should be surprised you find that offensive.

I don't think he is trying to "find truth." He is mocking others to try and advance his own opinion and status.

FM, when you're a member of a small minority (atheists), your best tack is working for equal rights for minorities, not proving the other 95% wrong. Just saying.

Google "Pastafarian".

All religions have as much credibility as the Pastifarians.

Long live " The Noodly One".

Nah, I can barely get through this part of Stephenson's "Snow Crash" or Scott Adams' books & blog on the subject.

I'm not very interested in corporate religion or the ID/Darwin debate.

It only interests me when "creation science" is taught in schools as somehow "fact-based"...

"The Flying Spaghetti Monster"(the Pastafarian Deity) deserves as much class time as the god in intelligent design.
