"The power it would take to ban religion would be a scary amount. So no, I don't want to "ban" religion. A lot of times I wish it would disappear though. "

How far behind are we?

I wonder if anyone can provide an educated value for the following question?How far behind are we? In terms of scientific progress how many "lost" years  could we attribute to the last two thousand years of repression, fear and ignorance? Answers must include a modern day object or scientific advancement in its religion free timeline. i.e. a 747 flown by the Wright brothers.Serious answers and silliness both welcome....  See More

"In some ways, being Episcopal is a lot more like being a Unitarian than a Baptist. @ Unseen - Episcopal = God light lol."

"And back to my initial statement - I don't feel anyone should have the right to tell their children that punishment might include being burned alive.  If your church could avoid that then certainly others could as well."

"I grew up in the Episcopal church, and all I can say is that Hell was almost never discussed. In fact, the only time I can even remember the word coming up is in the Lord's Prayer which claims that Jesus descended into Hell during the period…"

Heather Spoonheim replied to Mac's discussion 'something to ponder'
"Yeah, and if I cornered their children and told them all about death, and how once you die "that's it", game over, you don't exist anymore - then I suppose that might be abuse.  That's not what I'm proposing,…"

"I suppose it all depends on how one looks at it. I imagine the theist is going to view you as terrorizing children with the threat of no chance at an afterlife."

Mabel replied to Mac's discussion 'something to ponder'
"I would like to put a ban on the sorts of ideas that can be passed on to children, however. Primarily, I feel that no one should have the right to tell their children that a possible punishment might include being burned alive.  @ Heather - I…"

"Constitutionally it is a violation. But if it were banned w/o also removing the concept of religion from the minds of everyone it would still fail to accomplish anything ultimately. Remember how well the Prohibition era worked in the first part of…"

"So threatening children with immolation is just one form of child abuse that we must tolerate?  No thank you - I'll stick by my desire to ban that sort of behavior."

Dale Headley replied to Mac's discussion 'something to ponder'
"You can’t ban religion without banning thinking; and I would never want do that.  Banning thinking is what religion is all about.  The solution is not to join them (in stifling free thought), but for free thinkers to continue to…"

"I wouldn't ban religion but I would stop state money going to finance religious schools. I don't want my tax money going to promote religious education."

Unseen replied to Mac's discussion 'something to ponder'
"If you're going to ban the inculcating of religious tenets from parent to child, you might as well go ahead and ban the religion itself, for in an evangelical faith like Christianity and Islam, it is one's duty to spread the word and…"
