  • It's a bit like substance abuse really.
    Ban something where there is a craving-like demand, and it will go underground.

    If it was bad enough what happened during prohibition and what is happening now with illicit drugs, just think what would happen if religion goes underground.

    It did happen in Russia when totalitarian communism dismantled religion...the persecution was horrendous.
    Not to mention what happened when Germany banned one particular faith.

    The reason I said this would be fun is because I think this will be a really good debate, and you've taken this wwwwwwaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy out of context

  • Banning it wouldn’t work as the sheeple  still need their security blanket as in there’s a terribly shy god who never shows himself but is always watching his little flock from afar , if they bow , scrape and crawl to him daily well then they get a chance to do so for .....eternity.... how fabulous is that ?

    I would not ban religion but would make sure children under the age of 18 would were banned from reading the Bible which has a god commanding and  approving of abortion , rape, homophobia, misogyny, pestilence , famine , slavery etc , etc , most Christians are totally unaware of this as they’ve never read the Bible

    @CYDdharta ;
    Atheism isn't a damn religion 
    The definition of faith: complete trust or confidence in someone or something.
    The definition of a theory: a supposition or a system of ideas intended to explain something, especially one based on general principles independent of the thing to be explained.

    Now, how can it not be crystal clear to you that evolution is a faith? You need faith to believe any theory is true, since it is only true until it's proved to be untrue, and therefore any theory can never be an absolute fact. Explain to me how and why evolution should not be subject to the rules of a theory, and why evolution can be a fact, while any other theory remains a theory.

  • "Explain to me how and why evolution should not be subject to the rules of a theory, and why evolution can be a fact, while any other theory remains a theory."

    You are obfuscating the words "faith" and "theory" either through ignorance or deliberately, in which case, it is a very amateurish attempt, to say the least.

    There is a difference between faith and religious faith and interchanging one with the other in an argument does one no great favors whatsoever.

    The Theory of Evolution is part of Darwin's work The Origin Of The Species. The theory has been further researched and has been irrefutably proven by an abundance of evidence through the science of evolution by natural selection.

    The theories of God and creation have absolutely no credible supporting evidence whatsoever and are completely unfounded and unproven.

    Atheism and evolution are not religions and anyone making such an assertion is both childish and stupid. 

    @Pieter
    Zombieguy1987Erfisflat
  • @Wowsil

    Actually, evolution has not been "irrefutably proven". It's still a theory. A widely accepted one but a theory nonetheless. No one has seen a dinosaur evolve into a mammal just as no one saw Moses split the Red Sea. All we have is clues and evidence that we piece together for our beliefs and theories. 
    Zombieguy1987Erfisflat
  • Christianity used to be banned and harshly persecuted in the Roman Empire. Then, one day, it became the official religion, and relatively soon the state built on the ideas incompatible with Christian morals collapsed.

    Banning ideologies is counter-productive and outright morally wrong. Freedom of speech, and especially freedom of opinions, is the cornerstone of modern democracies, and restricting them for the "greater good" always in practice leads to the "greater bad".

    Religion does not affect me in any way where I live. If someone is not tolerant enough to be able to handle the fact that their neighbor might be religious, then they would be better off in a country like North Korea, where inconvenient ideologies, indeed, are banned.

No one has seen a dinosaur evolve into a mammal just as no one saw Moses split the Red Sea. All we have is clues and evidence that we piece together for our beliefs and theories." 

    Actually, evolution through natural selection has been irrefutable proven and there is overwhelming, carefully researched, solid evidence confirming it.

    I suspect that you are confusing the word "theory".
    If you are referring to the "Theory of Evolution" as contained in Darwin's work "The Origin Of The Species", that theory has been well and truly confirmed through the science of evolution...long ago.

    Just as forensic experts can piece together the events of a murder crime scene so too have experts pieced together the events of migrating species of animals which gave rise to other species developing in order to adapt to the different environments.

    Even without (the overwhelming amount) fossilized evidence, evolution through natural selection has been properly proven anyway through existing species. You don't have to look very far to see with your own eyes an infinite number of developmental stages from an ameba through to mammals. 
    And before you use the "eye and organ" argument, yes there are varying stages of eye development from single cell light receptors to extremely sophisticated eyes. The human eye, by the way, comes fairly well down the list (so far) in terms of development. The mantis shrimp can see more colors than humans and has a greater field of view.

    Just because you can't see the grass grow or the hour hand move around a clock dial doesn't mean that they don't.

    And the science being too complex to understand or read does not invalidate it either.

    If you wish to be more informed on your opinion without reading screeds of text you could read The Greatest Show On Earth by Richard Dawkins.
    Amazon.comt: The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution ...
    It is accurate, has not been successfully refuted and explains the irrefutable facts in plain English.

    Then come back and tell us what you think.

    I don't think that it's a matter of banning ideas that is pertinent.

  • "...so you WOULD include atheism in your list of banned ideologies."

    Not atheism per say, since, by its very nature, does not articulate anti-social venom.
    There will be atheists, of course, who could be anti-social in articulating their philosophies but that would have nothing to do with atheism itself.
    For example, it is often claimed by theists that Stalin destroyed churches and persecuted religious followers because he was an atheist.
    Stalin was an atheist but committed those atrocities in the name of communism.

    Atheism does not involve doctrines of hatred, prejudice, and bigotry.
    More often than not atheism is a refusal to accept the deliberate hatred, prejudice, and bigotry that are part of religious ideologies. 
    @CYDdharta
  • @Zombieguy1987

    I think discrimination against atheists is morally wrong, but I also think that trying to fix the situation by introducing a discriminatory law is much worse still.

    The law should not be used to cure societal ills; the law should be used to create the environment in which the tools for curing societal ills by means of individual and group activities are readily available. You do not defeat malicious ideologies by banning them; you defeat them by having a free open debate about them and systematically beating them in that debate. This is how we got from worldwide religious tyranny as in Medieval Europe, to what we have now where that level of tyranny is only present in a few Sharia states.

    The US is much less religious today than it was even a couple of decades ago. Give it more time, and the situation will change even more. I am pretty sure that in 50-60 years religion will only be a thing in the least developed countries, as everyone else is too deep into the world of technology to care about fantasy creatures from ancient books.

    I disagree, .. Richard Dawkins is an atheist, and venom, ridicule, hatred radiates from him. .. or are you saying "he does those mean things in the name of Evolution"?
    No, it is his belief called atheism that drives him to do that, just as Stalin committed those atrocities in the name of his religious belief in atheism, that God does not exist, so he believes that he will not have to face the consequences of his actions. Atheism includes many other beliefs also, like Evolution, where man is just another animal, and animals like us carnivores eat each other. The only consequences is if you don't kill and eat, you and your family starve, which is the moral of that story.

    I say ban all Religion and their man made gods and doctrines that keep the gods alive, and stick with science where there is but One God, our Infinite and Eternal Creator. No one could go wrong putting their faith in evidence with substance, which is science, .. right?

    Theists follow doctrines that prescribe elitism, prejudice, and hatred of minority groups.

    The debates that I create constructively criticize these distasteful traits of theists and I always give valid reasons for such ridicule.

    More often than not, theists give the only reason for their ignorant, arrogant vitriol against others as being, "because it is written", which is considered as an insult to one's intelligence and totally unacceptable.

    Atheism does not promote any such vilification and hatred.

    Atheists may dislike theists for their nutty beliefs but there is no atheist charter proclaiming that atheists must hate homosexuals, other religions, people seeking abortions and people seeking euthanasia.

    Theists do have a charter (for example, Christians) that they must hate homosexuals, other religions, people seeking abortions and people seeking euthanasia.

    When are religious followers going to get it through their stubborn heads that their peculiar and distasteful ways are anti-social. For the most part, atheists are criticizing and drawing the facts to theists that their behavior is anti-social and bordering on being criminal.

    Yes, there may be atheists who go over the top and get angry (e.g. the gay wedding cake protest) however I think self-centered, ignorant theists bring it upon themselves.

    Evidence

    Just because  you call your Religion 'atheism' that mirrors everything God created and said (turn it upside down, inside out and backwards) like calling atheism science and anti-religion it doesn't mean it is. There are many "science Religions" out there, like "Heavens Gate", .. "Scientology", and now look who is coming out of the closet, none other than the R.C. Christians finally admitting they were behind the Big Bang and the darker skin color discriminating Evolution story too.
    Pope confesses that: "God is not a magician, so He allowed the universe to evolve from a Big Bang, and man through evolution." .. wow, .. the first open atheist Pope. And oh yeah, he also said (like any good atheist would) that "Jesus was a failure on the cross!"

    With Erfisflat, we discovered who is behind the Georgia Guide Stones too, none other than the Roman Catholic Christians or R. C. Christian, .. signed, sealed and had the Guide-Stones delivered,..  and with the Agendas 21, 2030 they are on their way to put our world back to how God found it in Genesis 1:2   "Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep"

    In other words chaos/chaotic like atheism .. hurling venom, ridicule, and hatred at others out of sheer ignorance and arrogance, destroying the earth by deforestation, pollution, chem-trailing, poisoning the water, kidnapping girls and children (human trafficking, Pizzagate,) all under the pretense of "Equality, Privacy, Sustainability, anti-Discrimination, Homeland Security (that's a good one, .. homeland security lol), anti-Cancer agenda where millions and millions are murdered by the supposed cure, .. should I go on?

    This is all under the atheism title, so don't try to cover it up? We are waking up to all the "atheist" lies, starting with the claim that it is anti-religion. But I guess we have Religious freedom, you can custom create and name your Religion whatever you want!?
