Jhayes replied to jean Rodriguez's discussion 'Atheist Billboard' in the group Think Atheist Billboard
"Fair enough, but to be aware of the enormous amounts of money raised by churches and used to help people in underdeveloped countries does not in any way erase the fact that huge amounts of money raised by churches go to missionary activities in…"

"Anthony: in general, I'm with you. But I think there is another reason why people believe that the bible is true.  They learn it during childhood, and because of natural human development, it becomes ingrained in such a way that most…"

"'"[today], when religious wars and mindless murders are rampant" I don't mean to be a contrarian, but this is a pet peeve of mine: today's society is actually no different from past societies in this regard. Religious war…"

"Thanks, Strega. Ingersoll's essay is beautiful, deep, thorough, poetic, and nothing short of genius. I shouldn't dare make assumptions, but for the sake of argument, I wonder: would Ingersoll, 110 years later, during a time when religious…"

"Sorry. I may have been rude. But it became obvious to me that you are not debating whether atheism can be separate from religion as much as you are insisting that we all have to be agnostic because we can't know what lies beyond reality. If…"

"And thus concludes a conversation that I thought I was having with an intelligent being. You claim that an agnostic is one who conceptualizes the null hypothesis. Bullshit. The ability to conceptualize the null hypothesis is basic; it takes…"

"Andrew. I like your responses. And while I dislike the first the most, it intrigues me the most so I'll branch to it. My father (a self-proclaimed agnostic) taught me that to be atheist was to be religious. It took me until my late 30s to…"

"Andrew, I'll take the debate bate. You end your argument with "anything else would be a lie." I can't disagree. To realize the enormous evidence of science that is often the foundation of an atheist's views and then try to…"

Profile Information

Your Religious Status
Atheist
About Me:
I'm a small business owner, have two young children, and a dumb dog that worships birds and rabbits. I have a bone to pick with a world that can't get beyond its shortsightedness quickly enough to save itself from global warming. I fear the pains my children's generation will suffer due to the effects of global warming, and I see religion as an enormous barrier to technological and educational progress.
Age
41-46
Relationship Status
Married
Why are you here?
I believe there is perhaps nothing as effective as religion in holding back mankind from achieving great things. And I believe that good education can tip the balance towards science and progress by generating analytic minds capable of escaping the inherent potential to believe in the supernatural.
The religion you left
Christian
Why you left your religion.
I do not belong to those incredible people who escaped religion. I escaped an experimental bout with Christianity, but the foundation had already been laid: though neither of my parents were outspoken on the subject of religion, my father followed science and deemed himself an agnostic, and my mother had somehow, and of her own accord, escaped the powerful grip of Greek Orthodoxy in her youth. Her father was a priest.
