"I believe there is no such thing as basic dignity, human rights, etc. that are afforded us simply because we are human. Rights are given to us by society - other people. If a person decides not to afford you a right, there's nothing other than…"

"I do not think that he is incapable of choosing his own purpose. I feel that many theists tend to label their personal purpose that they have assigned to themselves as the purpose that their god has put them on the Earth for. This is just a…"

"Mark, you should take the time to read everyone's responses. If you do that, you'll see that your assertions have already been discussed. We do not accept the claim that purpose, meaning, or dignity are handed to us from some god. You…"

"We could just as easily find 'purpose' by believing that our President was the manifestation of The Grand Creator here on Earth - hey, it works in North Korea.  That we might find purpose in an idea does not attest to its truth.…"

""All sacred, and so all deserving of respect and basic dignity." I quote you and say that you must use this same logic for the member of the Texas BofED. What you will find is very few people who call themselves Christian really search for…"

"I thought I was up to date on Dawkin's videos but I had not seen the one you linked to. It's really one of his better replies to this type of question. I've seen him flounder in this same situation before. It really was a great…"
