Atheism is an oxymoron.

I can only assume she views atheism as a religion.  Any other conclusions?  Arguments?

Just as a side note, that carbon dating crap he's saying is bunk. Dawkins explains it very well in the greatest show on earth. There are many ways to estimate the age of an item, and usually several methods are used and a final estimate is concluded by factoring in each result. He's completely wrong to say that carbon dating is only valid to fifty thousand years. If he's such an expert, have him explain how carbon dating works. He'll have no idea, which stongly suggests he's of course talking out of his ass.
Yes, they do.  It is one of the many lies they tell.  This lie, like so many others, is subtle.  It is a lie of omission.  Religious arguments, and creationist arguments in particular, are often based on lies of omission.  Such as omitting the fact that belief and faith have more than one definition.

Religion. All definitions have something to do with a higher power, a spiritual lider, a god, etc.

 

I am curious. Does he believe that the belief in Santa is also a religion?

 

You can tell him something like: "I believe you are stupid. Does that mean I have a new religion?" It shouldn't matter whether you believe he is stupid or not; just to see what his response is.

I considered doing something similar to that, but feel I am wasting energy and brain cells.  He and the other person are now in a shouting match on my fb page.
Thanks.  This discussion now has 236 comments.  I hope the madness ends soon.

I was getting annoyed just reading this.  How can any clear thinking person attempt to water down the definition of religion so much as to make it mean 'A belief in something'?

 

We already have a word for that, it's called belief!  Let alone his atrocious reasoning for the falsity of evolution.  Ugh!

 

Is it that believers in a religion can't for the life of them imagine a person who is NOT part of a religion?
