    Values being, beliefs that make their quasi religion superior to others.
    Not just, these other religions are based on myth, that why our's is better.

    They haven't said why their's is better, nor have they highlighted anything about the superiority of atheism.

    Every type of group has values. Just because it doesn't coincide with yours doesn't negate that fact.

    Close but not quite. Every one has a set of values. Those of atheists do not come from a religion and are pretty disparate.

    Does it matter if they come from a religion or not?

    And i've seen quite a few athiests on this board alone that have the same amount of values that I do.

    Edit: Maybe I'm just not getting what you're saying?

    I'm not sure why anyone should care about that poster. It makes a rooky mistake by attacking myths. No sensible man attacks myths or fairy tales, they are more true than much science or history. I just wish Chesterton were alive to see it.

    I hate to see others being dicks with what is public space.
    Shows a lack of character and class.

    If I were the grand pooba of public displays in Santa Monica, I'd ban them all and be done with the childish behavior.

    It's not the quantity of values, it is how they are derived. Actually it may not even be that as I think more on it. We derive our values mostly from society. Atheists tend to be more direct about that is all.

    Oh for god's sake...

    Science is an attempt to understand the universe and is self correcting(we call that experimentation). Myths and religion are an attempt to understand the universe that is not self correcting, and in fact tends to discourage examination of evidence of the religions accuracy.

We must be in free fall then, oh boy, grab onto something quick! Myths more true than science?????...and we wonder why we have a clown show for the Republican nomination.
