"Yeah, cause you believe they shouldn't."
"To deny ignorance, is to assert that there is such a thing as "not ignorance". This must be an achievable state, and if it is achievable, then it has due process."
"Welcome to the "religionists" my friend."
"I am guessing you will disagree (ironically, I might add)"
"I would never question your right to do so. You have freedom of religion, after all."
Dear Lord......Not again???
How many times am I going to see this Darwinian-Buttlick materialize here on ATS???
Seriously though: Where is the 'Missing Link'?
Sorry, did I hear a ' we are still looking'?
Ohhhh, I guess until then it will only ever be a theory.

Pardon me, but you yourself sound like a fundamentalist Atheist. You are also quite intolerant, and somewhat bigoted if I may say so myself.
I am a Christian, and I defend every individuals right to freely practice their own religion, regardless of exactly what it is. I only ask that those who practice their religion, do so in a respectful manner which does not incite violence against people of other faiths, and that they do not practice nor preach any form of violence at all (ie, ritual human sacrifice, etc.).
You as an Atheist, out of all people, are openly advocating the hatred and bullying of another legitimate and well established belief system, and due to such, I do not believe that you have any room to speak when issuing the typical fringe Atheist mantra of "Being Oppressed", or "Being Victimized" by so called "Religious Brutes". You have to give respect in order to receive it, and that is the bottom line in life.

funny you should post this. I am pagan but am shocked that thread owner in this thread:
was banned and my source says without warning or reason. This appears to be because it questioned faith. When trying to question it my post was removed. As an open minded pagan I believe ATS is without doubt under seige. It might be time to move on. please u2u me your email address so I can be in touch after you get banned from this thread.

Here is an example of what happens on ATS when you make a post.
I posted a link to a great condensed version of Darwins work written by Steve Jones in the Science section.
After 1 post thanking me for the great link the rest descended into a religous battle between Christians and atheists....
...As usual the thread quickly evaporated.
That is the sort of thing that the OP and others are talking about.

I ask because maybe atheists should be classified as fundies. I mean they do have extreme fringe beliefs and adamantly stick to them in the face of all evidence...
