"Good luck Kevin I really admire what you;re doing here, even if it's totally odd for me (here in NZ). I agree with your advisors here .. fight it, but don't lose your head, stay calm and above all rational. All the best and good luck."

Stacy B replied to Kevin McShane's discussion 'High School Teacher Directs "Athelets For Christ" in our school setting.'
"You definitely have a case here if the group is organized by a teacher. Let me first say that there is not a brick wall between religion and school. Just because it has to do with religion does not mean it can't be in a school. Having the Bible…"

About Me:
www.myspace.com/mackyshane

Its all there. lol. I'm so sorry, but I'm one of those people who absolutely hate repeating myself, and I feel like I have been having to write new "about me's" all the time online.

I used to consider myself an Agnostic but came to the conclusion that anyone who thinks the odds of a god existing are 50/50 is just as irrational as a theist is, the way I see it. It's not true that every thing that we don't know for certain has 50% chance of going either way; it depends on the data we have. The fact that we're not really certain of anything doesn't mean that there's a 50% chance that the Earth is flat - we have too much evidence that points to it being round. Atheism and Agnosticism are questions to two different questions. Atheism answers the question, "Do you have any belief in a god/gods?" While agnosticism answers the question, "Can humans ever truly know whether a god/gods exist?" Saying you are agnostic is not an answer to the question of religion, it is an answer to the question of human understanding. Saying you are agnostic when asked whether you are a theist or not is like answering I don't know to a yes or no question. Agnosticism is a stance on knowledge, not religion.

It's true there is no evidence for either side, but there is something else we humans have that we can use in place of evidence to make a rational decision when evidence is not available. It's called reason. We can't prove there is no god, but we can make the rational decision to not believe in something ridiculous.

An example of this would be things like: big-foot, leprechauns, and pixies. No evidence either way, yet we can make a rational decision to not believe in them.

Why are you here?
To promote secularism and to show people that Atheists are not immoral or unintelligent. I want to spend my life dedicated to this work whether I can get a paying job for a coalition for Atheist groups or just doing it as something I want to do. I am very active with Non-Religious groups including my own city. There are certainly days where I feel like I have a new load because of the religious social pressures for sure. But I keep trying to look forward and what makes me feel better is knowing that what I am doing now will help those down the road. In other words, I know that my spreading the message that Atheists are not evil terrorists and such will help future atheists be accepted. If I can keep less people from going through what I have gone through, that makes me feel better.
The religion you left
Christian
Why you left your religion.
Its an invisible product created by the imagination of man.
I am intolerant of religion controlling people’s decisions on birth, I am intolerant of religion starting wars, I am intolerant of religion being pushed onto children who have no choice, I am intolerant of religion in the class room, I am intolerant of my taxpayer dollars going to religious schools, I am intolerant of my gay friend not being allowed to get married, I am intolerant of people thinking I have no morals because I have no religion, I am intolerant of the militarism that is portrayed through religion, I am intolerant of hate crimes.

hey thanks a lot for the add. I'll be sure to check out those sites. I'm a noob atheist so I still have to learn more. I'm looking forward for all the atheists here to share their brilliant thoughts. Cheers!
