I've heard many so called atheists refer to the "soul" as if it actually existed.  My question is:  If you believe humans have a soul are you really an atheist? Continue

@Steven Hewett: Congratulations!  I wish I had the $$$$ to become a Life Member, but I just don't.  I feel terrible about that. 

I love FFRF, particularly the generous helpings of light-heartedness.  I realize now that humor is something that is lacking in all the different religions I explored before I figured out that they were based on folklore/fiction.

From the rest of the article, I got the impression that they were saying that fundamentalist students don't start to "get it" till their junior or senior years...in college.  That's much too late!  Everyone should understand the basics of evolution theory before they finish high school.

Pointing out that Catholic theologists made important scientific breakthroughs isn't going to impress Southern Baptists.  In fact it might turn them away from studying biology or cosmology, if their religion is more important to them than learning about the world.  (I remember the anti-Catholic tone of sermons when I was still going to a Bapnit Crutch as a teen-ager, but I was beginning to doubt by then.  "Our" pastor was a pompous a$$, and a celebrity suck-up.)

Kids need to start learning the natural sciences when their  hunger to learn overrides their religious indoctrination.  When "Jesus" is no more real to them than "Snow White."  (That's how I thought of him till I was about 11 or 12; then I just about burned out my brain trying to believe, because I wanted to "fit in" with my classmates, but I never could.)
