Who said the people doing the throwing out are atheists?

Further, each and every one of those people were thrown out because of their completely absurd reasoning. You don't need to have anything to do with atheism to know that any so called "professor" who denies evolution has absolutely no business in a teaching position.

Are you trying to tell me that you do not believe climate change is happening? From the selection of links you've given me its pretty obvious that you're a bigot against gays and lesbians, and finally you obviously don't understand evolution either.

What? Am I supposed to take you seriously now? You're a bigot that denies climate change and evolution.

In effect, what you have just told me is that you have the intellectual honesty of a three year old. Congratulations, go away and educate yourself, and when you've done that I might consider taking you seriously.

The way you devolving into insults and name-calling says much of your intelligence and integrity ;)
Climate-gate did much to shake my belief in GW, and even if it didn’t, if it is a piece of science and not dogma you hold on to as part of your worldview, you shouldn’t be so agitated.
By the way, did I ever say I don’t believe the things you named? Nope, I provided links to people who’s views are being repressed, and I think it’s wrong. Does that means I necessary agree with them? No, it would be retarded to jump to that conclusion.
Remember the Voltaire? “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”

Anyway, keep disgracing atheists like that, and be surprised by meeting more Mormons (or whoever) around next time.

First of all, there view is not being repressed. They are being removed from responsible positions where they have control over the education and beliefs of young and impressionable people. They are still perfectly welcome to spout whatever gibberish they wish, they are not however allowed to spout anti-scientific crap and bigoted trash while retaining those positions where they have unparalleled influence on the next generation of scientists.

And furthermore, it IS completely anti-scientific gibberish, it is most certainly NOT a repressed scientific theory, people are perfectly welcome to try and make people believe their crap, but that does not stop it from being crap.

Both climate change and evolution are scientific theories, indeed they are some of the best proven theories of all time, there is actually LESS evidence backing up the theory of gravity than there is backing up the theory of evolution. I assume that you are not going to complain if members of the flat earth society get thrown out of universities? They believe that the world is flat, that our experience of gravity is nothing more than the world we stand on accelerating upwards at a velocity that simulates our "mainstream" view of gravity, and there is LESS evidence proving them wrong than there is proving creationists wrong.

As to it being retarded to jump to the conclusion that you agree with people when you defend them. Actually you are so far from correct it is really rather hilarious, the human mind is preprogrammed for confirmation bias and self justification. It is extremely likely that you would defend people that you agree with, and much less likely that you would defend those that you do not agree with. Also, the subjects you picked to defend are so ridiculous that I naturally assumed that the only way you would have any pity for them was that you agreed with the content of them.

So tell me, what ARE your views on climate change, evolution and gay rights (or as I like to call them 'rights')?

Further, I would without batting an eyelid protest your right to spout whatever gibberish you prefer, I am all for freedom of speech, but I do believe that peoples views and ideas DIRECTLY impact their suitability for responsible positions overseeing the welfare and education of other people.

As to my de-evolution to insults, it says absolutely nothing about my intelligence what so ever, what it does say is that I have grown resigned to never being able to change the mind of a moron who accepts without question that neither evolution nor climate change have any validity, and I therefore no longer bother to waste my time trying.

It is also worth noting that insults are actually an extremely effective method of making people re-evaluate their personal biases.

I give you the words of Rowan Atkinson, on the right to ridicule religious ideas. "The freedom to criticise ideas - any ideas even if they are sincerely held beliefs - is one of the fundamental freedoms of society. And the law which attempts to say you can criticise or ridicule ideas as long as they are not religious ideas is a very peculiar law indeed.

"It all points to the promotion of the idea that there should be a right not to be offended. But in my view the right to offend is far more important than any right not to be offended. The right to ridicule is far more important to society than any right not to be ridiculed because one in my view represents openness - and the other represents oppression."

Keep disgracing the human race like that, and be surprised when religious people decide that climate change doesn't matter because they are going to heaven in the rapture anyway and they therefore don't need to do anything about it. You might even be too late. [link]

He has a point.
You link to plenty of reading and watching, yet you reject reading a single text-box that equals less than one of your links. That's some honorable debating~

So what your saying is that because I can't be bothered to watch an hour and a half video, I am the one who is holding blindly to my beliefs, and yet you can't spend 5 minuets reading 11 small paragraphs?

Hypocritical much?

Hitchens is our Jesus, he preached the wordsof Reason and Logic, brought unholy hell on the heads of Religious debaters all over the world, promoted tolerance and acceptance well drinking down "Jesus' blood"
He died to prove a point, that hes not burning in hell. And if he is, I'm happy in the knowledge he already beat up the devil and took over.
