It's just that dang internet... I live in NH, the vast majority isn't quite as noticeable. Honestly I'm not really sure what ANYONE believes around here. Not too many people talk about it.
Being from New England we don't tend to focus too much on faith or lack of faith in the public sphere. In this neck of the woods, it seems, we also respect and understand the First Amendment as freedom OF and FROM religion.
peeples, I highly doubt an "outspoken atheist" could get elected president of the United States. Most people also associate Christianity with having "family values".
Every president is sworn in with their hand firmly placed on the bible.:)
I said get along. Of course anyone who varies from a society's norm would not be likely to gain a majority when it comes to votes. Just as we will likely not have any openly gay presidents any time soon.
One could argue, based on statistics, that a society filled with religious people would have a higher crime rate than a society filled with non-religious people. And the non-religious would also tend to be more intelligent, based on the studies.
thunk..... your observations are comical at best. Yes, the world would thrive under "tyranny!"
Atheists think religious people are stupid because they don't care about science. Religeous people think atheists will burn in hell. I think roller coasters are quite fun. Someone always initiates these debates due to a lack of trust by both parties.
Very well said!!
mcbel--"Atheism is prevalent in the stages of collapse in every great empire in history." Would you like to tell me what those empires were. Pretentious would be the word.
It's my right as an American to ignore facts, isn't it? I'm 20, lay off. I've done a lot less reading than you, I'm sure. Glad you were able to make it to the end of my answer. Readability isn't as much a problem as is research/ignorance.
mcbel--You have a right to voice your opinion. You do not have a right to be ignorant and pass it off as truth. In your professed ignorance you endeared another JT and helped to perpetuate an obedience to deceit.
cjhunsinger... he said in his honest opinion.... are we not all allowed that even if you do not agree?
Woah, man. I don't eat at McDonald's because the Big Mac looks good on TV. I don't take part in pyramid schemes. I'm a college student who likes beer and freedom of speech. I on HP to escape accountability for my words, not combat fact trolls.
I think that you are a college student is quite obvious and I am sure that once you graduate you will continue to escape accountability--bad habits are hard to break.
Zero accountability is the American Dream for my entire generation. It's a college major called Marketing.
mcbel--I just read some of your other posts. I don't think your last statement is altogether true. There is depth and there is sincerity in your words. I wish you well.
Please refer to my latest comment and the article attached. It discusses a study that is the basis for my question. This question isn't an opinion, but it's based on the the results of the study.
Thunk...... Regardless of the article... I still stick by my answer. We all know how liberal the media is for sure in this Country.
