Not playing those games MIMS. The OP is clear. You are a prolific poster. From that I take it that you are intelligent. If you can't discern that for yourself one would have to assume an agenda and a willingness for being intentionally obtuse.
for a super moderator thats not very helpful is it...disappointed when i read that
some people could consider this thread as a perfect example of the trouble and disruption religion causes to every day life.

Creationism is a conspiracy, there are people as we speak trying to get Creationism put in schools, which is wildly unconstitutional and they are conspiring to do it, even openly at times.
Don't get me wrong I understand wanting to keep the maturity level up and avoid bickering and trolling but it doesn't make sense to say that posts here have to include a conspiracy because any discussion on Creationism automatically includes a conspiracy.

According to the people who choose not to believe in the theory of evolution, the entire theory is just one vast century-and-a-half long conspiracy between scientists and politicians to strip away the moral fiber of humanity. On the other end, there's hardly a month that goes by where I don't see an article about some state or local school board using some amazing feats of semantic gymnastics to support introducing an inherently religious concept into a science classroom.

Is this in response to those who don't believe in creation getting sick of being beat up by the fact that evolution requires far more faith than anyone from any religion believing in a superior being? That question seems to raise the ire of evolitions who claim foul.
I always thought that ATS was about seperating facts from fiction?
I mean, it's fine to theorise, and to postulate. It's great to bring evidence to the table. The problem with the theist / atheist debate is that neither side can ever bring any evidence to the table, because there is none for either side.
All people can ever do is theorise - which to be fair, has been ever so slightly overdone in the thousands of years that religion has been about, and here on ATS. All we ever see is atheists trying to turn ATS into a purely sceptical and secular outpost, and religious fundies trying to recruit everyone else on here and turn ATS into a dogmatic fact interpretation centre. The discussion of conspiracy and alternative subjects goes out of the window.
Personally, I'd like to see a ban on explicitly theist vs atheist threads, so that we can get back to discussing conspiracy and alt' subjects. I also think that repeat offenders in this regard shouldn't be banned, but should have ALL of their posts branded with either a 'fundie' tag, or a 'fascist non-believer' tag. Humiliation is far better than bannination...
