Why one particular atheist is angry.
I agree with pretty much everything she had to say.
So I'll just add, "amen."

It has everything to do with atheism. Faith-driven initiatives are the reason there was a fight to teach science in schools. I'm not sure how your background in Paleoanthropology gives you any greater reason to be upset about this than any other person (or blogger for that matter) but you're definitely welcome to your opinions.
Really with throwing out how many religions you've been a part of/exposed to and your various educational credentials, this just seems to have turned into a game of "let's see who's -insert genitalia of choice- is bigger." While that has a place in frat houses I'm sure, I was hoping for something more than that so I'm going to stop contributing to this flame war.
Sorry I cluttered up your journal Ry...I'll buy you a beer to make up for it ;)
Background in Paleoanthropology = work in the field of human origins and evolution. Sorry, I didn't think I'd have to explain vocabulary words.
I think that's been the whole issue: I'm assuming more knowledge on the behalf of the people I've responded to than actually exists.
I'm glad you admire my internet penis. What was meant was an explanation of how I came to know that the poster didn't know what she was talking about.
Oh well, arguing on the internuts about religion/atheism is pretty much automatically made of fail, so I guess we all lose, regardless of the sizes of our respective e-genitalia.
I see from your other thread that you couldn't find my request to bow out of the discussion and oceanic's insistence that Christians need to engage in discussion (and her 6 replies right after that - look at the timestamps), but if you poke around more, you'll find it.
I'm also sure you won't, since you called me a doberman. That was pretty funny though ;)
I'd apologize, but I already have, and I really didn't want to get dragged into this in the first place, especisllay since it seems that alternative POVs are not welcomed.
wait wait, it can't be over yet, no one's triggered Godwin's law!
It ain't over until someone's a nazi, rule 1 of flamewars. really though, let's let it die. Enough bad blood over this already.
