So? What ancient religion (that hasn't been destroyed by other religions and then "resurrected" by those who weren't privy to the original beliefs) hasn't preached that it's okay to kill non believers? It seems that Judaism, Christianity (at least through inheritance) and Islam all suffer from this affliction.

Sure, Hinduism and Buddhism offer some salvation from this "Kill them all, let god sort them out" belief -however: aren't they a little less believable without this fundamental tenant?

Of course they do. Children start thinking logically around age 8. If you don't get them indoctrinated while they're young, you'll lose them.

Well, it's only fair, given all the atheist and agnostic organizations that teach their children to kill Christians.

Right?

Because radical atheists are much worse than radical Christians.

Right?

I was taught that you should never kill anyone when you can enslave them instead.

"Good News" clubs teach children in public schools the Biblical importance of killing all non believers

This headline is full of fail. 1) For the Secular Fundamentalist: these clubs are not held during school hours. They are held after hours when the general public has access to public schools. 2) Christians have been around for nearly two thousand years and have not engaged in genocide.

Look, I'm as much a Christian as anyone, but surely no self-respecting Christian would totally forget the Crusades. Also, if I'm not mistaken, the Rwandans of the 90s were generally Christians, and yet committed genocide on each other.

Yes, it is condemned by the Bible, but don't pretend it hasn't been done.

That's the problem when your history Alphas and Omegas with the Bible: you end up looking quite ignorant.

Christians are well known for their convert or die attitude and actions. Protestants were just as bad as Catholics.

It should be considered child abuse to force religion on children.

If someone is so bugfark nuts to want to believe in fairy tales once they reach adulthood, that's their business. But to poison the minds of impressionable children with this crap and turn them into hatemongers and terrorists based on a millennium old book of fairy tales is despicable, and should be seen as a reason to have the children removed from the care of the irresponsible individuals brainwashing them.

Fun fact: the vast majority of Germans in the 1930s and 40s were devout Christians!
Fun fact: The pogroms that frequently occurred throughout Russian history were carried out by Christians
Fun fact: Christians intentionally slaughtered untold thousands of indigenous Americans with the blessing of the Church.

Yeah, your entire faith is based on prophesies that is in that religions text.

And your belief that basic sciene may not be consistent historically is not logical.

Science doesn't know anything precisely-that's why everything gets questioned thousands of time and tested a billions of times.

Because science keeps asking-religion say just believe.

As Christians aren't they supposed to be follow the New Covenant, the one with Christ, the one that advocate peace, love and forgiveness as the path to eternal life and teaching this message to the youth and non-believers.

The Old Testament is supposed to be a reminder of what the "chosen ones" had to go though in order to be worthy of the New Covenant.

Who cares what religious people do? They are secular within their own belief system. What makes it wrong within that belief system to disregard other belief systems?

At the core of Doner's book are two chapters devoted to Sarah Palin and the New Apostolic Reformation - possibly the most radical, and perhaps the fastest growing, segment of American evangelicalism - a faction of "Neo-Fundamentalism" so politically and ideologically extreme that Doner worries its leaders might trigger a second American civil war.

Go for it, assholes. Please. I beg you. Start some shiat. Because the moment you fire the first shot at me, I then have a very good reason to set aside my general pacifism. And i promise you, I will make it more your problem than mine.

Scientific method is this: some one comes up with an explination for something. This is called hypothesis. They set up something to test this: if it is successful then they come up with a theory.

Other scientist recreate said test. Sometimes the results don't match, sometimes it's inconclusive. Often times, theories are given, and some evidence can be found decades later.

Some things- such as Newton laws- do not work on a sub atomic level- hence quantum physics.

That is science. Our understanding is known only what we can observe and replicate now. We can discover... And still discover new ways to observe with new technology. People centuries ago had no formal concepts of atoms-but there were some guesses and insights that were road signs.

Take religion: Christian bible has been the most heavily edited religious in existence. Prophesies of the old testament are misquoted and twisted to fit the needs of the churches of Jesus. Events of the bible cannot be replicated nor observed. For the One True Religion, there are awful lot of sects.

The different sects of sience (engineering, math physics) let mankind leave the earth. The different religious sects gave us some nice looking buildings, art and music. But you didn't need any particular god to achieve that.

As far as recalibration- I believe it may have to do with contamination and degradation one something is unearth from being sealed in the ground. I'm not an expert on carbon dating. Somebody scientific knows on FARK.

Philosophy is a science- but not all science is a philosophy. Religion does give a guide to living life. Mathematics will just give you an answer- not a moral decision.

And don't ask me about Canada-I think it's mythological ;)

/by the way- my theory is that religion was mankinds first step into sciences. Astronomy is a descendant of astrology, chemistry is the grandchild of alchemy. But we had to crawl befor we walked. The question is- are we ready to fly.

FTFA: "The Amalekites had heard about Israel's true and living God many years before, but they refused to believe in him. The Amalekites refused to believe in God and God had promised punishment."

So this all knowing and all powerful god has to farm his dirty work out to his true believers, instead of meting out the punishment himself. Personally, I would be more willing to believe in a god that shows his face once in a while and takes care of his own business, instead of having his lackeys finish the job.

1. The general public does not have access to public schools at any time. One needs school approval.

2. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religion_in_Nazi_Germany - "The German census of May 1939 indicates that 54 percent of Germans considered themselves Protestant and 40 percent considered themselves Catholic"

But more to the point, THESE "Christians" are advocating the killing of non-Christians, and they're doing so in public schools - just as the headline says.
