So much for morality from the gods.
Yeah, I remember reading or watching something about the neurological mechanisms behind empathy, mirror neurons and other things I don't really remember (must watch a documentary on memory, obvs... or start taking pillsWink). Of course, empathy alone doesn't account for morality... I think (but what do I know, really).

Bacteria. I was thinking about that this morning and how there are some crawling on each of our bodies. Yet, they are so small we can't even see them. If you compare that relationship to another - us in relation to the God who is supposedly everywhere in the universe - those bacteria are huge!!! So how small are we then....?

It still boggles my mind how anyone believes that such a God would be paying any attention whatsoever to whether we sacrifice something, are on our knees, marry someone of the same sex, or do frankly anything at all. Or how they believe such a God would have created something so small... and bacteria even so much smaller.

RE: Atheist Church of the evolving Human God.
Once you get past the nonsense in the first part, which is fucking stupid, it gets slightly better. He's talking about an atheist church, as a social institution, which is not an entirely bad idea. Problem is it's phrased in the worst way possible, by a semi-theistic idiot.

E 2 = (mc 2)2 + (pc )2
614C → 714N + e + ̅νe
2 K(s) + 2 H2O(l) → 2 KOH(aq) + H2 (g) + 196 kJ/mol
It works, bitches.

Lol, what now. This has to be a joke, or maybe its not such a bad idea. Christian science after all at its extremes is equally as confounding. The only problem, well not the only problem, but perhaps the most difficult to overcome is that if there was an atheist church, it would have to persecute and declare its own membership heretics. But, then again it works for holy mother church.

Considering that we've had multiple threads laboriously arguing about definitions of atheism, there would be schism and charges of heresy almost immediately.

You realize your doing what he is talking about that fails right?

Just throwing tidbits and saying, here's these real facts you are missing, look look look.

Btw there's plenty of people that thought if Hutchins it Dawkins as the atheist pope already. Not much hoopla there so far.
