Nothing Yminale has said up to this point has contained any actual information, or pushed any specific argument. It's been one generality after another from start to finish. The responses can be cut and pasted into any question we've asked, because they don't actually address anything at all, save for some vague, esoteric meanderings that serve no practical purpose.
I want to hear more about the evil Atheist Agenda. Atheist, I assume, is a some crazy anti-religious freedom fighter...or Yminale just doesn't understand the concept of subject-verb agreement.
Well, if I recall correctly, atheists want to:

1] Subjugate religion
2] Force churches to disband
3] Indoctrinate children
4] Rule the world
5] Put their hands in the air and wave them like they just don't care

We atheists will...

1] Subjugate religion - With a big stick.
2] Force churches to disband - With a big stick.
3] Indoctrinate children - IN THE SCIENCE CLASSROOM!!
4] Rule the world - They shall kneel before Zod.
5] Put our hands in the air and wave them like we just don't care - Don't be ridiculous, man. We're not monsters.

Re: Bill Nye: “Creationism is not Appropriate for Children”

Well, there is a small minority of "evangelical" atheists who embarrass the rest with vocal intolerance of any sign of religious beliefs, no matter how traditional and watered down. At Christmas they probably go down to the mall and tell three-year olds that Santa is a fraud.

You could argue that they're not so much atheists as religious fundamentalists whose adopted religion is a belief in No-God, the next logical step after moving from polytheism to monotheism, and more strident against monotheists than monotheists were against polytheists. Fortunately they're a small minority.

The most amusing thing I've run across are strident agnostics who were trying to codify agnostic beliefs. I guess they were worried about having the wrong doubts.

What's even worse are Pollytheists, who worship parrots.

Re: Bill Nye: “Creationism is not Appropriate for Children”

It amazes me that this debate exists. Creationism is an item of faith, not of science and thus doesn't belong in science classes. Even if you believe in Creationism, there's no scientific aspect to it- as a matter of fact it's there to try and refute science.

Re: Bill Nye: “Creationism is not Appropriate for Children”

I have no problem with creation stories being taught in school. However only as part of a mythology or comparative religions class. And even then multiple creation myths would have to be discussed.

Re: Bill Nye: “Creationism is not Appropriate for Children”

I'm beginning to suspect there's more to the terms "hardshell Baptist" and "soft-shell Baptist" than I had assumed. Maybe it has something to do with crabs, like Big-Endians and Little-Endians in Gulliver's Travels.

Yeah. The apatheists started to say the same thing, but just trailed off and resumed playing XBOX.

They could call themselves the Quarrymen. I heard that name's no longer taken.

Do Baptists walk sideways? I'd never noticed.
