Quote:Hans Bethe (1906–2005): German-American nuclear physicist, and Nobel laureate in physics for his work on the theory of stellar nucleosynthesis.[20] A versatile theoretical physicist, Bethe also made important contributions to quantum electrodynamics, nuclear physics, solid-state physics and astrophysics. During World War II, he was head of the Theoretical Division at the secret Los Alamos laboratory which developed the first atomic bombs. There he played a key role in calculating the critical mass of the weapons, and did theoretical work on the implosion method used in both the Trinity test and the "Fat Man" weapon dropped on Nagasaki, Japan.[21]

You're ignorance is, well, not surprising. Do you have any idea how many people worked on the Manhattan Project? Can you really characterize their religious affiliation? Do you really think theists have no blood on their hands?
There are plenty of people that think America developing nuclear weaponry was a MUCH better alternative than the Christian Nazis.

And while you're showing all of your hatred and bigotry towards people that don't believe as you do, we sit here and observe that you do this in the name of your religion and your god. Guess what message is really getting through here....

I came from a world where the Christians glossed over those things. Different people have different experiences.



All that proves is a lot of people believe the same nonfalsifiable thing. A lot of others believe in other nonfalsifiable things. I'm not sure why you think an argument from popularity would be compelling.

1. In the months I've been here, and The Q have been watching, I've mostly stuck to the Atheism and Theism forums. I've seen umpteen Bible potshots that were that--single verses taken out of context. I can't recall even one thread, "What is good and decent in the Bible?" or "People talk about the love of Jesus. Is that a believable concept?" -- okay, maybe there's one post. Big deal.

2. Mine is less an argument from popularity than a call to hearken TTA toward reality. "Most humans need to eat and sleep on a regular basis to live." More power to you if you can do without either, brother.

No it isn't. Jebus is not believable, and everything about his "Love your neighbor as yourself", came from somewhere else.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

And btw sam harris called for nuking muslims.

Franklin Roosevelt gave approval and funding to begin the Manhattan Project he was an Episcopal, Harry Truman, A southern Baptist, succeeded Roosevelt and made the decision to use the bomb to end the war.

I believe these CHRISTIANS made the right decision.

Can you even set aside your bigotry long enough to actually see the truth?

Scientists could just refuse to develop such weapon and there would not be any WMDs used in WWII

And an invasion of mainland Japan would have cost MILLIONS of lives, rather than the hundred thousand or so that died using the nukes.

Bad solution? Probably.

But they had it coming. They started the shit. We just ended it.

And the Nazis would have developed atomic weapons first. I'm sure glad us atheists saved the world from Nazism.

Atheism is the lack of belief in gods. That's it.
Therefore, your statement is nonsense.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.
