dont think so...atheism would increase but future belongs to agnostic..present religion wont be able to meet demands of future generations in terms of questions ...science wont be able to prove god doesnot exist ,atleast in near future...so in future agnostics would increase in numbers...
In context this was funny as.....well.....as hell. And I am the guy who asked the question whether evolution accepted Christians.
See, we have a sense of humor, too, and can appreciate a wry wit, regardless of belief system.
a sense of humor is a terrible thing to waste. If more people used theirs, we would be half way to tolerating each other. I would still be laughing at them but since we were tolerating each other they would be laughing at themselves and that would be something we agreed on...they are idiots. What do you think?
No, because we can breed with believers (though I do not know why we'd want to).
I wonder if we could actually submit something putting atheist on the list of protected species. That would be a wild headline! lol I can only imagine what outrage it would cause to the homo-religilous.
I'm sure atheists themselves would be offended by being put on a list that called them a different "species" other than what they are---human.
I'm wondering just what "species" you are calling atheists...
Bahahahhahaha! The irony, the irony! Too tantalizingly ridiculous.
Species can confuse many here as it could imply non human. Do you think it would be better to change it maybe- Culture, A way of thinking, Group, OR Science sided.
On come, atheists, help me and her out here.
I don't understand your question. Can you restate it?
Some ID for atheist is needed for others to identify
How about Humanism or humanist contrast with species anti-humanism
Is an approach in study, philosophy, or practice that focuses on human values and concerns? The term can mean several things, for example:
1. A historical movement associated especially with the Italian Renaissance.
2. An approach to education that uses literary means or a focus on the humanities to inform students.
3. A variety of perspectives in philosophy and social science which affirm some notion of 'human nature' (by).
4. A secular ideology which espouses reason, ethics, and justice, whilst specifically rejecting supernatural and religious dogma as a basis of morality and decision-making.
Not all atheist believe the same things we just don't believe in any god. Originally, the thread was a joke, intended to be funny because religious thinkers tend to exclude themselves from what we are, human...homo-sapien- sapiens..human, while the others believe that they are not another animal species but believe they are from something else and do equate themselves as something else..ie:god.
So I laughed at Brenda post because I noted the "joke" about human classification being homo-religialous.
Hence the title of the thread. To the religious (born from god folks) they are not animals but according to everyone else (Brenda, ironically agrees yet is disastrously dimwitted ) we are just that an animal species that should be put on the "endangered species" list because according to homo-religialous, atheist must die... ie, human protection.
I had no intention of making anything serious out of it except for the part where there is a hint of, "it would probably be a good idea if you are an atheist."
All that is required is for atheists to adopt the label of "true" humans and everything is kosher. Even if we were placed on the endangered species list it wouldn't be for long. There is definate proof that the younger generations prefer to keep their fantasy worlds and beings in the movie theater. Thinking will continue to evolve into an ability more and more people begin to exercise. It stands to reason that as the brain gets over the initial shock of an independent thought, it will come to the conclusion that a lot of things are a load of crap. I will say that it would be nice to get a tax break for being considered an endagered species. Perhaps the could establish protected areas where we could live a natural life free of the fear of the persecution that public displays of intelligent thought brings down upon our shoulders. Of course you realize that we would be subjected to annual hunts to thin the herd don't you? Some would claim that all these thinking people would eventually cause a shortage of thoughts being available to the masses, in the off chance they decided to have their first one all by themselves, lol. Well it gives some of us something to think about and allows the rest to scratch their head and cry, watch out, it's some of them heathen thought havin folks ya'll. I am looking forward to the national geographic specials as we atheists begin to make our come back. We promise not to try and take over the world, honest, ok?
species would be one of the nicer things I've been called this week, lol.
If you can come up with a story about it Landover Baptist Church might print it. Moving atheists to reservations has some potential. Housing, schools, Government mandated church representation. Freedom of religion you know. Community Centers for Critical Thinking Seminars. Survival classes for the annual thinning of the herd charity hunt for church building funds nationwide (Tax Deductible). We need a congress man like M.Ron Ashole to push it thru congress. Any ideas, anyone, Yep, even you can contribute. If you lock up all the thinkin' foks it will be a lot easier to control the rest. Huge potential for government budget cuts in propoganda.
Meh, once they realized they could be protected from religion they would all come and join us.
Holy Moly that sounds a lot like America.
Doses feel like a private party, finding religion laughable.
I like funny stuff. It just sucks when some take it to seriously.

Practical life offers more wisdom, sometimes, than rational theories. So we have atheists - who consider the notions like 'sacred', 'holy', 'the holy bible', etc as if they are sentimental tools that the 'reasonless' -...
