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

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 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.)

"Widespread rejection in America of climate science, and denial of climate change is linked with the "street fight" over evolution, speakers told an audience of mostly American scientists and educators.
But Miller said the stereotype that "rational science is at war with irrational faith" is wrong.
He said popular American culture and religious speakers promote a literal interpretation of the Bible, as well as the idea that morality would not exist without religion."

ha! okay...

United States placed second to last — just before Turkey — in a recent survey in 33 countries of how well people understood evolution.

Parts of the Bible are clearly pornographic.  The entirety is pornographic if by pornography one means genocide and other such things.

I did not know that there was a warning label.

Comment by Chris Dodds on February 14, 2012 at 5:13pm

Anyone know where I can score one of those Bible Warning labels?

sk8, Perhaps the key is your comment that Hosea approves of abortion for anyone who doesn't believe in Yahweh Jehovahcat.  These misogynists DO believe in Yahweh Jehovahcat.  What they are doing is trying to force their theology/dogma on others.  That is what the 1st Amendment prohibits.

Last week I was glued to MSNBC while the C-PAC loonies were ranting about contraception and their version of religious freedom. (Rick InSanitorium seems to think that the Puritans founded this nation...he's never heard of The Enlightenment. Obviously.)

I was house sitting for a friend, and didn't have access to the net, but I wanted to yell at somebody that the buybull says NOTHING about contraception, and Hosea 13:16 seems to approve of abortion for any woman who doesn't worship YHWH.

What is the big deal with xians and contraception?  Do they think their imaginary friend is going to "come back" as an infant, and a little pill might prevent that?  Is their god that helpless?

BTW, do these same people think drugs like Viagra and Cialis are "natural"?

War On Women, folks!  WOW!
