    It's not a religion but I do agree with you that atheism does involve a form of faith, because there is no way to know that God doesn't exist. Religious people, and atheist have the same type of mindset IMO, they just believe different things. Agnostics are the ones to claim that we don't know.

    Atheism is a religion in the same way that not collecting stamps is a hobby.

    Awful movie. Very Michael Moore-ish.

    In every Evangelical church I've ever come across. In the Catholic church. In Orthodox Jewish circles. The position of women in Judaeo-Christian religious domains has always been subordinate to that of men.

    Islamic extremists are taking the Koran quite literally, its the more moderate muslims that dont follow everything it says.
    Which is most sane people's contention. It's only the extremists that interpret the Qur'an (or the Bible's) call to violence and subjugation.

    I would of thought that you would of known this?
    I would have thought you would have known how to write English.

    I always felt agnostics were kinda the real cowards. The religious folks embrace it, the atheist embrace it and the agnostics can't make a decision!
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
