You Christains are SO OPPRESSED and DISCRIMINATED.
These people can go to their religious colleges and avoid the problem altogether.
Imagine saying that about muslims or religious jews and what shitstorm you would be hit for that.
And media muting atheists? Proof links? Corporate Media is mostly liberal, i.e. atheist.
www.youtube.com/watch?v=luib2p… <--- Your people are so blind and so bitter.
www.youtube.com/watch?v=plmqMM… <---- You hate us. But for what? We are not the ones blowing people up...
www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ie2-12… <----- or trying to snuff out others civil rights.
Media is NOT liberal. They keep purposely writing the definitions wrong for our term 'Atheist'.
Which is a lack of belief in a god or gods.
We thrive in science, logic, and reason. Not violence, discrimination, and fairy tales.
By the way, saying that the shitstorm I would cause? When it's YOUR people that are causing the problems. Which is why we Atheist seek the truth, put it in your face, and force open your eyes.
There is NO god. The bombing in FRANCE should tell you that.
Why didn't he prevent that? Why are you PRAYING? SEND MONEY FOR FUCK'S SAKE!
Praying does jack shit!
www.youtube.com/watch?v=RsJeFj… <--- LOOK AT THIS!
These are the problems we ATHIEST are FIGHTING! Kids are dying because people put TOO much faith in religion.
That's why I'm an Atheist. Religion just DISGUST me.
I hope you can withstand the bombshell I just dropped on you.
So your proofs are some old guy's Opinion and a few stupid people. you know what? There are stupid Atheist people too, who believe in pseudo-scientific miracle cures and they get hurt because of that too. It's stupidity problem, not religion problem.
To refuse that scientific field and leave your fate up to an imaginary being, is stupidity at it's finest.
My proofs are what people, most in your religious group no less, SAY and OPPOSE the rights of others.
You don't see Atheist out here targeting crosses and tearing them down. Fuck, your people even had the NERVE to climb up on our first ATHIEST MONUMENT EVER and do a little preachy speech, while standing on it!
At an event for the atheist no less!
They even said that there was nothing wrong with terrorism.
It appears that religious stupidity knocks the Athiest stupidity out of the ballpark with that kind of opinion.

I know not ALL religious people are like this, however, these people are an embarrassment to those who don't act this way.
Seriously? Is nothing wrong with terrorism? What about 9/11? The toddler shooting? The Oregon shooting? The bombing in Paris?
This is just disgusting on a number of levels. I know this isn't an opinion that many religious people share, however, knowing that the religious community has these types of people, makes me prouder to be an Atheist.
How they don't have anything to complain about if they suffer descrimination, as i demonstrated in linked materials?
It looks like you are arbitrarlily brushing facts aside here.
Sorry, but considering certain pervs as sinful is basic christianity (old testament, you know), so you either declare christianity evil and descriminate them (very tolerant of you), or you let them take the same posts as non-christians, dispite their divergent beliefs.
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.
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.
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 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.
We were all created by a benevolent sky genie.
I'm eating the blood and body of a 2000 year old god at church.
We'll start with these obviously false assertions, care to provide any evidence to prove them?
And yes, Christians did burn and silence people who spoke out against them a few centuries ago. Not believing in god back then was fatal.
We were all created by God. Prove differently.
Christ told us to do this in remembrance of Him from time to time. He did not say to make it ritual, as some do.
You are the one made your claim, I said prove it. So far you have not even tried.
Because a few did wrongs, you cannot tar all with the same brush, do you see this being practiced today?
Adam shat Eve after eating ribs. Prove differently.
Where is your proof?
If you are going to argue like a moron then at least have the common decency to back your own logic so those outside your lobotomized brain can fully soak in your idiocy.
2. Assuming you are a Judaeo Christian creationist which seems to be quite likely, a cursory walk through the local museum is sufficient to disprove this position. The deist position, that the world was set into motion by a non-personal god is still possible but that’s neither here nor there.
3. I'm not sure about the relevance of this but I do agree with you in the symbolism of this act. However in place of a rebuttal I shall beseech you to explain how Christ’s story differs from other figures in history that performed miracles, had virgin births, were god in human flesh, had amazing knowledge etc. Such as Buddha, Dionysus and my personal favourite Horus.
While I personally do not 'tar all with the same brush' (funny you use tar, as I recall it was one of the more interesting methods of punishment the church had to offer during their periods of predominant absolute authority) I find it to be almost poetic how people of the faith espouse to have a higher sense of morality. How they follow the 'one true' faith and have only the highest respect/love for their fellow human beings when the most likely reason they hold said faith is that at some point in time it was brought to either their ancestors or the ancestors of the people they heard it from by the point of a sword over the screams of dying 'heretics'.
No, what has historically been the primary method of supplying the masses with religion is not seen today. However what is seen today, shame/scare tactics, the supression of rights based on sexual orientation, lying to Africans about condoms, faith 'healings' etc, still leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. While I concede religion has been a source of good, it has also been a source of evil. The good deeds and neutral actions of some who follow a religion does not abscond it from criticism on its less than holy elements.
Gone far too soon CH,
