What do you think of a day of celebration for the whole of the world?
We have many religions and many days are celebrated. What about a day that does not discriminate but celebrates ALL humankind? We could perhaps even give it a name such as DOUG DAY. For example: Day of United Gratitude. Or if you happen to be an agnostic: DOUT. Which could also be a day of united thanks. This one is going to 'throw the cat among the pigeons' I think we'll find out a lot about tolerance and intolerance here...
How About Cats Day? A day where people all over the world should care for cats and don't kill the stray cats on the streets
Where do principals come in? Should I abandone my principals so that others may advance theirs or should principals be outlawed. What gratitude should I have for those who would gladly cut off my head or promote an ideaology that contradicts mine?

George Carlin once said; "Keep thy religion to thyself." If we could do that, tens of thousands of young lives would be saved every year and humanity might just have a chance to survive it's own wrath...
I rather resent that word, 'you' in there, which, I interpret as inferring I'm a 'religious' person and espouse a particular religion. I do not.
You "resent" far too easy Tom, no dispersion intended. I don't have a religion either. So what should I have said? "A lot of the worlds religious people" perhaps?

Personally, I really don't see what gives non-believers the right to criticize and verbally hurt innocent religions who want to do nothing but help spread peace, love, and do charity work for the poor. After much personal researching I've done, I've determined these 3 false excuses that they use so...

I've been here longer than I probably should have been, reading a lot in this forum. I have come to the conclusion that I have found an answer or two, so I don't begrudge the experience. I have, at times, been as intolerant as the next person. It seems to me that the following...

Do you believe that religion as a whole has helped or impeded society? Why? Why not?

Separation of Church and State?Separation of Church and State is a hot topic currently, but to me, the trend seems to focus on things like the Pledge of Allegiance or the Ten Commandments in public buildings, yet religious state laws, like alcohol on Sundays, for instance, are rarely mentioned or...
