    I would too. I don't think that evolution is debateable or at least not the whole theory, nor does it disprove the existence of a god, the Big Bang has parts that are logical, but I'm not quite sold on it's overall validity yet, there are some loose ends to be tied up scientifically.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Really? It's still an attack on some people's beliefs.

    Religion is a choice, race is not. Thanks for playing.
    Damn man, it was just an example. Race or not is irrelevant. It is about being insulted by someones else's words for whatever reason.

    Thanks for playing.

    Does atheism teach you anything? No. Does it help you in your day to day life? No. It is simply a lack of belief in something. Someones religion is much more than that. It is part of who they are literally. So you can see how that would be a bit more touchy.

    Evolution and the Big Bang theory are both concepts that attempt to explain our existence. They don't help me in my everyday life(I don't need "help"), but they are my beliefs.

    Right. No one has argued to the contrary. My argument still stands: Just because something insults or offends you, does not mean it should be taken down.

    You are not getting what I am trying to say.

    I believe in evolution to a point as well as the big bang. This has nothing at all to do with me as a person. Religion, or better yet my religion does. It does for most religious people.

    When did I say anything about taking anything down? All I was stating was why the emotion has absolutely nothing to do with a lack of faith etc, nothing more.

    So, again, I propose that you come to the understanding that the atheists who did this are idiots. I think we can agree on that one.

    My problem is with people saying that it should be removed because it's "insulting" or "offensive".

    Not my argument man. I don't care if it is taken down or not.
