letrole: Atheism is a Religion.
letrole: Atheism is a Religion.The amusing part is where an almost endless supply of Schoolboy Atheists will launch into ever-decreasing circles of denial, and exercises of semantics worthy of any medieval theologian.
Uncle Tractor: cegorach: Came here to see 'Atheists' displaying an utter lack of understanding of how the scientific method worksFor instance ...?and engaging in hilariously hypocritical irrational justifications of their belief systems, leaving satisfied."Atheism is a religion?" Please.And yes, Dawkins is a douchebag channeling his personal issues into ideological fodder.People keep claiming that Dawkins is militant, aggressive, or in your case, a douchebag. Never really seen any justification of this. Must be one of those truisms that Fox keep repeating over and over until their viewers believe them. His personal issues is being fed up with all the bullshiat that comes with religion.
douchebag/hater: Richard Dawkins = Westboro Baptist Church.
I drunk what: interesting, and how would you feel if you weren't a troll?

Savian: Ishkur: Slaxl: Science and religion are not incompatibleThey're not even comparable. Religion is a body of beliefs. Science is a process for understanding the natural world. One is a thing, the other is an activity>. It would be like comparing apples to eating.Religion just doesn't like it when Science investigates its assertions, but that's hardly Science's fault. Science investigates everything -- that's what it does. It is not dogma, it is a methodology.Science is a noun, not a verb.
radarlove: While my initial post may have been intentionally and trollishly vague, I assure you that assholishness was completely my point. The fact of the matter is that that is ALL that you people EVER argue about, regardless of the topic. Religion, vegetarianism, the fiscal cliff, gun control, dog ownership, food allergies, circumcision- it doesn't matter. Every single argument any of you people get into can be boiled down to who you think is the bigger asshole. In this particular argument it isn't about Dawkins vs Higgs (and why would you think that I would believe Peter Higgs to be religious, especially considering the content of TFA?), but rather the religious (including Atheists) vs. the non-religious (including theists).And guess what? Same as always, they're both equally assholish. Every single one of us is an asshole of equal proportion and gape, including you and I.Arguing over who is the bigger one in any situation is not only the height of idiocy, but the height of blind childishness.But you're right, I should just bow out of the thread and not engage in what is surely to become an argument.I'm okay with being honest with myself and admitting that I'm an asshole- but I'm not okay with making myself a farking idiot.
SkunkWerks: Do you know why they call it Atheism?Because when you see it you turn 360 degrees and walk the other way.
What_do_you_want_now: letrole: Atheism is a Religion.....and?
AdolfOliverPanties: He's easily done as much to hurt atheism as he has done to help it.
Slaxl: The funny thing is in the religion debate Peter Higgs is going to get extra weight added to his views because the 'god' particle was his and discovered, which can easily be manipulated by journalists who misrepresent science to suggest he has proof of god.
