This is why Militant Atheism is necessary
For those of you who still wonder why some of us are so militant, and who criticize us for being too harsh on the religious folks...here is something that will change your mind.

If you think the Evangelical war on science is not that serious, or that we exaggerate it's seriousness, hear the Evangelical nuts telling you what they have in store for us. This Congressman, Paul Bron, sits on the House Committee of Science, Space, and Technology. Hear him explaining how he sabotages our nation's scientific and technological development by voting against any scientific projects that may challenge the science and knowledge contained in his 2,500 year old book of Judeo-Christian myths.

At stake is this nation's future as a world leader in the scientific disciplines. and our future technological development. Hear this American Taliban discussing his hatred for all things scientific, then tell me if you still think think the Evangelical War on Science is harmless, and that we are not justified in our militarism against these Evangelical extremists. Wake up!!! They are pushing this filth in our schools, our courts, Washington, DC., and every other place where they think they can get away with it. If we don't take them seriously, this country faces a real possibility of being stuck back in the 19th century while the rest of the world marches on.

I think the religious conservative and your constitution are doing a fine job of that as it is.

Yes, I know. The Congressman in this video is in charge of deciding what scientific projects the Federal government should invest in, and he is a Young Earth Creationist who uses the Bible as a guide to deciding what science this country should embrace or reject.

What's your point?
America is in huge debt, there are millions of homeless, millions more jobless, you are fighting several wars, you have declining healthcare/education, you have a massive crime problem as well as your hole judicial system being shit in general, the bible belt, texas, your government is more or less controlled by major corporations whom have their own interests in mind, you elect presidents based on bowling averages, you caused the financial crisis, you have a shitty constitution, you're more religious then muslim countries at times, you're still very much terrified of socialism and communism, you have serious illegal immigrant problems, you don't have free speech, everyone sues everyone all the while you have the most arrogant attitude and hold yourself out as the best thing since sliced bread.
So having some bible basher in charge of science spending is just another piece of the pie. It's like we get it, you're countries shit, what else is new?

Define "militant". (or "harsh")

I'd like to respond knowing what your definition of it is.

What do you think a "militant atheist" does, in contrast to a "regular atheist"? Sleepy

Earmuffs, If you have nothing constructive to say, why bother replying? To you the United States is a hopeless piece of excrement, but you ignore the millions of secularists in this country who are fighting to make sure that this nation will continue to to remain a secular Republic, and to ensure that we maintain our scientific and technological superiority in the world. To us our country is not a piece of excrement, but something worth fighting over....and we are the fastest growing minority in America. Thank you for completely glossing over us with your very unhelpful comments.

I for one enjoy 'muffs rants. He makes a good point, which is that the problem of having YEC in politics is trivial compared to the real problems that the USA has (war, huge debts, healthcare/education problems, crime, etc.). The people who vote for these politicians are stuck in their current mindset, there is little to nothing you can do about that. What you should attempt to do is making sure that future generations are not being indoctrinated into believing this crap without questioning.

RE: This is why Militant Atheism is necessary
My personal opinion on what I think a militant atheist is: Militant atheists are unrepentant atheists who are open about their atheism, who are not afraid to challenge the Evangelicals when they try to push Creationism in our classrooms, who are not afraid to challenge the religious nuts when they violate our Constitutional liberties, and who are not afraid to explain to the religious why we do not believe in a God. For far too long we have been very passive while the Evangelicals are very vocal and keep pushing Creationism and theocracy down our throats.

**But then again, my opinion is worth exactly what you paid for it...

Ozzie, sir, please do a quick check before starting new threads.

http://www.thethinkingatheist.com/forum/...it-Of-Hell

Two or more threads on the same subject reduces the impact somewhat.

Cheers
