I have just finished suffering an illness that was just a combination of headaches, blocked nose, being sick, shivers everything just in one massive EVIL lump of illness. How did i get it? My mother…Continue

I read a reply by Laura Foster and at the end of the point it said "Beliefs, however, deserve all the criticism they get."It got me thinking, i know some people don't see atheism as a belief (as…Continue

Are stand up comedians anti-religious?

"Instead of actually being an interesting person I will sometimes just read some of the extra good bits of Leviticus to my friends for a laugh. You don't even have to try to make that material funny it is sitting there waiting for you. "

"Hi Jared. I just stumbled upon your response to my post. I've never had anyone point this out to me before, but now that I'm aware I'll correct this in the future. Thanks."

Are stand up comedians anti-religious?

"I am enjoying a stint of hate mail myself regarding a sarcastic comment made in regards to the precious Jesus Christ of Christianity.  I find it rather sad that someone can make a joke about whatever subject they want, and it will never get so…"

Sean Fraser replied to Amelia's discussion 'Do you think Theists are "stupid"?'
"I think there's two sides to this. I've always said that there are 2 kinds of theists: ones who aren't able to grasp the concepts science provides, and those that choose not to. I would say the dumb ones are in the minority. The ones…"

Dienekes replied to Amelia's discussion 'Do you think Theists are "stupid"?'
"Welcome to the light!  :) So, would you say it was more effective for people to just point out the "hypocrisy" (as you describe it) with your belief system rather than trying to play on your emotions, so to speak?  I believe…"

Dienekes replied to Amelia's discussion 'Do you think Theists are "stupid"?'
"Well, in that case I think you are unwittingly doing people a favor.  If someone makes a blanket statement of "they are all stupid", that person needs to be called out.  Personally, I don't think we need to go…"

T A A replied to Amelia's discussion 'Do you think Theists are "stupid"?'
"Neither. I just get a little annoyed at people who call others stupid for doing the exact same behaviour they themselves were recently doing... Personally I do think religious/enlightenment/theist people are stupid, not always of their own making,…"

Dienekes replied to Amelia's discussion 'Do you think Theists are "stupid"?'
"Hey TAA.  You seem to enjoy playing "devil's advocate" here.  Just wondering, are you by any chance religious or do you just like getting people to explain things?    BTW, I'm not saying it's bad to get…"

Dienekes replied to Amelia's discussion 'Do you think Theists are "stupid"?'
"The reason their brain goes dormant "when religion is around" is because religion works on an emotional level.  So, religious people tend to learn that any time their emotions come into play, they get to make emotional decisions and…"

Dienekes replied to Amelia's discussion 'Do you think Theists are "stupid"?'
"Uneducated people are easier to indoctrinate.  Anyone with a compromised ability to reason through a problem is easier to indoctrinate.  So, I guess the answer to your question is yes.  Anyone who has difficulty with the reasoning…"
Mar 9, 2011
Dienekes replied to Amelia's discussion 'Do you think Theists are "stupid"?'
"Yes, actually you are right.  When it comes to subjects that require insight, their ability to make an emotional decision and then only acknowledge facts (or usually suppositions) that support that view is unsurpassed.   I was specifically…"

Paul Sheppard replied to Amelia's discussion 'Do you think Theists are "stupid"?'
"I can only say that through being challenged by others and myself that the hypocrisy & guilt made me re think my spiritual beliefs.  The soft approach never worked for me as I just felt sorry for non believers, no-one had the guts to say…"

T A A replied to Amelia's discussion 'Do you think Theists are "stupid"?'
"The question then becomes: Are stupid people easier to indoctrinate?"
Mar 9, 2011
Mason replied to Amelia's discussion 'Do you think Theists are "stupid"?'
"The reason I would give for this is that, unlike most things that people learn, religious belief tends to be drilled into peoples' heads at a very early age, and is forced on them in such a way that they become psychologically conditioned to…"
