    He came to that conclusion because its baseless and has no facts to support his claim. In other words, he is religious.

    Buddhists don't call it a religion because it's sort of more of a philosophy, if I understand it correctly.

    Of course it also depends on the particular sect of Buddhism. It's about a thousand times more fractured than Christianity.

    I suppose it was far too much to ask that we have even one thread on religion, where an athiest doesn't feel compelled to talk down to and belittle the religious.

    Yeah, it was. Never understood the motivation of evangelical atheists. At least Christians think they're trying to save your soul.

    I was a confirmed Catholic, now I'm either a deist or an agnostic depending on what kind of mood I'm in...

    It's an honest question that apparently, Christians cannot provide an honest answer to. It was in response to a statement that a god is a more reasonable position than no god.

    I guess it's far too much to ask that Christians actually be able to answer simple questions rationally.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    No sir, when you use phrases like "magic man in the sky", you are belittling if not outright trolling. You didn't have to phrase it that way, you chose to.

    I never thought that I would thank a fascist for something.

    Yup, I chose to because it's the same claim that's been made over and over and over (not in this particular thread, but in forums for years) without ever receiving a credible response, so after a long time of people making absurd claims without a shred of support, you get what the claim has coming.

    Respect is earned, not simply granted on a silver platter. If religion wants respect, it needs to actually back up what it has to say.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
