Definitely going back to the middle ages. The law now is suspicion without evidence.
No more 4th amendment. I once thought they were coming after me with their pitch forks.
I took off work early and made a quick exit.
If the circumstance is right they will all, except maybe one, turn against you.
No, the religious are running away from all real debate as they always have, the cannot win because apart from all the dribble that is on the net there are many ways to receive an education online.
The internet may save the world from religion given a bit more time.
I must admit to being very nervous about some of the views expressed on here and from people I have spoken to in real life. Their beliefs are primitive, believing that people who have mental health problems and those who are left-handed are possessed by the devil. Yes, this sounds absurd to rational people, but such primitivism is growing. I refer people to the question, asked by a hubber on here, where they seriously suggest that the mentally ill are possessed, and the surprising number of people who agree with the suggestion.
Also. more and more people are turning away from the belief in evolution, and returning to primitive creationism. Even the scientific evidence for global warming is now questioned by most people. Science has become a dirty word for many people, and this view is spreading.
There was a time, in the 20th century when it looked like science was winning the debate. I no longer believe this is the case. Whether it be Islamic of Christian fundamentalism, I truly believe a lot the world is rushing to accept such ideologies. I realise some will think I am reacting to my fears, but from evidence, I really do believe the religious are making great advances in spreading their ideology, whilst the scientific rationalist is having to shout louder and louder just to be heard. It seems evidence is no longer able to win against the fundamentalist.

Is it possible to truly be religious as well as believe in the evidence of science with theories such as evolution, the Big Bang and dinosaurs existing prior to man not along side? (Please keep it clean and civil guys, thank you.)

So many people insist that Atheism is detrimental to society while religion enhanced society. Hmmm, now let us see this objectively instead of subjectively. Religions have been the source of wars and other types of divisions among humankind. Religions have also been the source of...

When it comes to the topic of religion, there will NEVER, EVER be an end to the debates and yet some people insist on stoking the fires. It seems to me that if any person is so intent on engaging in debates guaranteed to ruffle feathers and, intentionally or not, offend others then those...

I normally pay no attention to religious discussions. Partially because people tend to loose their minds when the "R" word is mentioned. However, due to recent attention from the media on religious people who make fools of themselves by way of ridiculously over zealous beliefs that make...
