Given the bad press the US and global media has misguidedly given to the muslims, is it any supprise that they keep there traps shut on this forum as the good ole yanks are usually spoiling for a fight !
Frankly, I could care less if muslims joined us in this stupid debate between atheists and Christians.

I would rather see and hear many more of them (Muslims) speak harshly about Radical Islam. Thats a serious problem in the entire free world today. If they don't speak harshly against Radical Islam, then they propagate it.

the significance of the obvious, part whatever . . .

I wonder if the religious here ever thought how their lives would have been if they were living 100,000 years ago.

There wouldn't be the major religions we have in our global society. It would be a primitive tribal society where man goes hunting for food, maintain a territory (his cave, or hut or whatever), get into fights with other men over women, land, food etc. . . but probably not over religious beliefs.

During this time, if you lived in a tribe, it's almost certain that you would wonder about the world and how it's uncomprehensible. And then, within the tribe, are the old men and women, and they get veneration and respect simply because they managed to live to such an old age (because at this time most will die young). And it's from them that the seeds of religion developed. It's main purpose was to explain the things, at the time, that was unexplainable. These old men and women made up stuff to satisfy their egos and the younger generation who questioned them. It also bonded the tribe socially and gave it psychological coherence.

In this time there were no Christians, Jews or Muslims. And people still got by.

Religion is a moronic concept. Full of nonsense, crap, and totally and utterly without ethical and logical consistency. There's nothing to fight for, because you're basically fighting over nothing.

Religion has always stuck it's nose into science. It can't not do that since that's how it "evolved". It's all very well for MPA and Stephen J Gould to impose the NOMA, but that would still leave us with a problem. The problem is that God can be treated as a non interfering party in our affairs. If He does not interfere then he might as well not exist. And anyone claiming this and that about Him, as all these different religious groups do, can have no final resolution of what it is He's about. And this means that these groups cannot be put into line - or corrected, because it's their faith.

But the good news is, since our future is Darwinian (as is our present and our past), all this silliness will get washed away, gradually, slowly, and inevitably . . . .

10 years you say? You must be popular.

If they kept on coming during that time I could have knitted all them strait jackets. Saves the authorities money you know, I believe an institutional grade strait jacket is a lot of money.

They used to come to my door. Since I live on an airport and my shop is in my backyard, they used to come bug me while I was working. One day a J.W. and his grandson asked if they could take a look at the planes in the shop. I said "sure, come on in!". The kid was fascinated and started asking what it took to become an aircraft mechanic. After I explained it to him, I said "There's just one problem kid, we don't hire Jehovah's Witnesses.". Before I could even say "just kidding" the kid was in tears and the grandfather yanked him out of the shop. Ooops! Some people just can't take a joke!

You shouldn't feel bad at all, because you taught that child a valuable lesson.

Jokes aside, I wouldn't hire 'em either -- nor any other of that ilk. Employers are overall better off avoiding the existentially-impaired whenever possible.

You have evidently succeeded -- wildly -- and I for one (reluctantly) salute you.

And I'm pleased to see that from time to time I've managed to assist you in this 'infernal fiasco' endeavor of yours, you slimy wet bucket of pond scum.

Modern man has only been around for about 60,000 years! Of course Atheists may not have changed since then.

Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about!
