Phillip M Hotchkiss,Fairy tales is an apt term. I will continue to
use it to describe religion until such time as proof is provided otherwise.As for your claims, they don't deserve a serious response.
@Scientist please do not refer to religion as fairy tales. I do not refer to
your beliefs as fairy tales. Your beliefs are solely based on theories and
experiments. Where religion is based on testimonies of others, faith and
knowledge. By using your methods one can prove science inconclusive. I have a
theory that carbon dating is worthless. And through an experiment, I can prove
it wrong. Einsteins' theory was debunked by a high school student by his
experiment. So I think if ones beliefs was a fairy tale it yours.
"Your calls for the censorship of religious expression anywhere in the
public sphere are unconstitutional,"Not at all.Religion has nothing to do with football. Injecting religion into football is
inappropriate.Religion has nothing to do with government and
politics. Injecting religion into government and politics is inappropriate.Religion has nothing to do with business. Injecting religion into
business is inappropriate.Calling something "the religion of
secularism" is the epitome of oxymoronic.This nation was founded
on a secular government, with secular institutions, to serve secular purposes.
Injecting religion into it is inappropriate.Nobody is saying you
can't have your fairy tale religious beliefs, and gather in your Churches
to share your fairy tale stories. The Constitution guarantees you the right to
do this, just as it guarantees that right to those who play D&D and who
gather to "worship".But nobody who adheres to D&D should
expect to shove their fantasies into the House, the Senate, the SCOTUS or the
White House, much less try to pass legislation based on its principles and
values, especially when such legislation discriminates against others who do not
share those beliefs and values.So it is with religion.
@ scienist why is it you can express your opinion on rather or not God is. And
if one does not share your thoughts. They are to keep it to them selfs?
Scientist,Your calls for the censorship of religious expression
anywhere in the public sphere are unconstitutional, and are representative of a
broader secular agenda that desires to establish the religion of secularism in
the United States. You threaten a war of gagging and bondage, and then wonder
why evangelicals respond in the way that they do.As far as fairy
tales, I would point you to last night's debate at Purdue between William
Lane Craig and Alex Rosenberg. Let's just say that it made me proud to be a
theist . . .
Unbelievers, please just leave it in the locker room. Stop shoving your
unbelieving fairy tale beliefs in everybody's face.Why is that
Believers, please just leave it in the locker room. Stop shoving your fairy tale
beliefs in everybody's face.Why is that so hard?
