Here is what I don't get. So many religious minded (brainwashed) people
like to point out that many scientific discoveries were made by people who
believe in god as if that were some kind of evidence FOR god. AND then
they turn around and deny many of the discoveries made by science.
Science has nothing to do with religion and it most CERTAINLY has nothing
to do with atheism.
Science is the search for answers by any method and by anyone who would
like to find those answers regardless of their religious beliefs.
Now it is true that religious beliefs do get in the way of science because
too many people think the results either disprove or displease what ever
god they think is real. There is also this misconception that science is
part of an atheistic agenda to disprove god while the opposite is certainly
true as many have used science to try and prove god, all of which have
SCIENCE has nothing to do with atheism, the fact that most scientist are
atheist only stands to reason because those involved in the sciences are
interested in reality, not mythology.
Science does not care what you believe, only that you do not let those
beliefs influence the results.
Chemistry is a good example, there is really no way that religious beliefs
can influence chemical reactions. But Biology, if you believe in a creator
then you are going to be influence to highlight those things you think
supports a creator and hide those things you think disproves a creator and
you are apt to try and stop work that you think this creator would not
Religious belief makes things worse, it interferes with progress, education
and scientific advancement.
It doesn't matter what contribution is made by those who believe there is a
god as their contribution is shadowed by those who would stop the work in
favor of a religious agenda.
Atheism has no agenda because atheism has nothing to prove - WE HAVE
NOTHING TO PROVE!!!! Atheism IS because there IS NO proof to speak of,
There is NO proof of god and so there are people who do not think there is
a god and they have been given the label atheist. WE have NO hold on
Science, NO connection to Evolution and NO agenda beyond fighting to keel
religious influence OUT OF Government, politics and most importantly
RELIGION, not believing there is a god but religion is what makes people
stupid because they are so focused in trying to keep anything that they
believe disproves god, like evolution an other sciences, out of education
that they create uninformed and undereducated people that are dumb out of
pure willingness to choose ignorance over reality.
Religion wants you to be stupid, wants your kids to be stupid and wants
everyone too stupid to see that the shit they are feeding you is in fact
shit. They don't want you to understand evolution because if you
understand it you might question the garbage that is int he bible that THEY
are telling you is true.
HOW STUPID do you need to be to argue that the literal mountain of evidence
for evolution is no match for a book based on stories that are hundreds and
even thousands of years old.
How can you trust a religion that tells you the story of Noah is true and
then does everything it can to keep you from learning the basic science
that shows the story is beyond silly and makes anyone who believe it look
like an idiot.
Ken Ham wants to be your god, he wants you to believe him above all others.
and Joel Olsteen wants to be god and he wants you to believe that god
needs your money, of course Olsteen is just one of THOUSANDS that want you
to believe god needs your money. Science is THEIR enemy and they will do
everything they can to keep you stupid and complacent.

I think it's ok to be atheist but if someone is atheist then don't go round
trying to prove everyone else is wrong. Just have your belief and be happy
with it. Otherwise you're just being really self centered and let's be
honest, if someone's belief gives them happiness, then taking that away is
just being a bad person.

Stupid video is stupid. Religion/spirituality and science used to be the
same thing. The bible taught to stay away from mould, the vikings and arabs
knew that the world wasn't flat, islamic nations also discovered
antibiotics, and (plastic) surgery hundreds/thousands of years before
western science/scientists. This video is incredibly ethnocentric and
doesn't take into account the contributions of religious communities that
weren't traditionally white or western.

here's a question for atheist parents, would you let you child raise
themselves without any instruction or interference? if not why not?

Religion is partially responsible for the creation of some of the best art,
music, and literature out there. Don't these matter at all? And what about
psychology? Only material science counts as science? Lastly, ideology in
general (be it scientific or religious) evolves with time, as our
understanding of the world expands and refines. Nothing remains absolutely
constant - thus is the nature of things. Impermanence and co-dependent
causality (complex web of cause-and-effect) constitute the core of Buddhist
philosophy. But that's irrelevant to any religion-related discussion,
because only western religion counts as religion, RIGHT? Using
fundamentalist Christian ideology as a strawman to discredit religion in
general is an unmistakably over-generalized (not to mention euro-centric)
worldview, and fails to address any subtle specificities in people's
individual spiritual inclinations.

And as for those of you who still refuse to trust science, the next time
you get leprosy, follow the Bible. Grab two birds, kill one, soak the other
in the dead bird's blood, and sprinkle the blood over your face seven
times. If that doesn't work, surely your sincere prayers will move the

It is, for example, impossible for evolution to account for the fact than
one single cell can carry more data than all the volumes of the
Encyclopedia Britannica put together. It now seems to me that the findings
of more than fifty years of DNA research have provided materials for a new
and enormously powerful argument to design.”

This is dumb. Religion has changed it's understanding as well. There's no
evidence or reason that religion and science can't coexist in the same
place and people and still be successful. How about instead of fighting
over what's what we solve some real problems
