Some of us get a large charge out of launching talking points at each other. It's like a kind of hobby.
Agree! But fanatics adore the quarrel
Believing in ancient myths about supernatural beings is absolute stupidity and that should be pointed out.
Believing in things for which there is no credible evidence whatsoever is stupidity.
Well you'd probably agree with me if we were talking about anything other than a god. Well, maybe you wouldn't. Once you start down the track of believing there's nothing wrong with accepting things without any evidence there's really no end to the crap you'll believe in. That's one of the reasons I think faith is such a bad thing.
So if someone believes it's ok to have sex with children as young as 5 it doesn't matter? If someone believes that black people are an inferior race it doesn't matter? If someone believes that homosexuals are evil sinners it doesn't matter? Beliefs matter. They matter a lot.
I believe societies agree upon laws that reflect their beliefs which is why debate about beliefs is so incredibly important.
That is what democracy should be about yes. And that's why there's continual debate about beliefs. And that's why I think it's so important that beliefs should be evidence based rather than faith based. Faith is only required when there is a lack of evidence. Believing in things without evidence in my opinion is just ridiculous. It leads people to be extremely credulous and gullible. That's not a good thing.
I agree! And I can't believe that some people think there was some bang and everything came into place and being. I have seen lots of stuff go bang and never once was a universe created.
Just because you're ignorant of science doesn't mean you should fill that ignorance with fairy tales about gods.
Yes your fairy tale ignorance is appalling. You shouldn't have dropped out of school and lay off the drugs.
Oh. Well.....no ones ever just put it plainly like that before.
try telling that to either or.
I agree, no point arguing in what you believe. If you believe it , it is your belief, an no one else's business.
