Actually, I don't give a shit if you are an atheist, agnostic, deist, polytheist, or of a major religion. Just don't be an asshole.

Yeah, and they can line up for the cavity search right here! *dons rubber glove*

Is this dialogue from that 'Left Behind' video game?

You need to paint with a bigger brush.

Fanatical, God-hating Darwinists might, I dunno. Never heard of a religion called Darwinianity.

Security risk? What for?
12/14/2006 11:52:14 AM
Pot and kettle second part!!!, how many non-KJV Christians do you trust?, how many Christians scientist who believe in evolution exist?
12/14/2006 1:47:26 PM
do not really trust anyone who dares to seriously believe in some kind of God. They are considered security risks no matter what.
You got that right. Why should we trust anyone with an imaginary omnipotent friend who, according to them, has ordered the destruction of entire civilizations and will do so again?

1. \"Fanatical God-hating Darwinists\"? You need to get out more. I doubt if anybody actually worships Darwin, and if anyone does worship Darwin, he is almost as deranged as you are -- \"almost\" because at least Darwin is known to have existed.
2. The trust/security issue? Well, it depends on how a religious person's particular delusions manifest -- but, yeah, I would be reluctant to trust one with either weaponry or a classroom if I were to get a choice about it.
12/14/2006 3:16:41 PM
And your reasons are? Something tells me you are the only one who sees them in this way is you.
12/14/2006 3:17:09 PM
Yeah, those \"fanatical God-hating Darwinists\" really would be a threat, but I don't know any.
First, fanatics of any cause can be a problem, but if by \"fanatical\" you really mean \"vehement,\" which I suspect you do, then don't worry, they are not out to do you violence. Fanatic religious persons, well, that's another question.
Second, I'm not sure I know any \"Darwinists\" who hate God. The atheist and agnostic \"Darwinists\" seem to understand that hating something that doesn't exists would be pointless.
Third, the term \"Darwinist\" is at best inaccurate. I DO believe Charles Darwin existed. He DID produce much of the early work on the ToE. I DO understand and accept the ToE. Still, the term \"Darwinist\" seems to imply that one worships Darwin or blindly believes absolutely everything he ever uttered. Neither is true for anyone I know.
Last, sometimes I DO have trouble trusting people who believe in wild, unsupported assertions. I'm just funny that way.

\"They are considered security risks no matter what.\"
Since they're trying to start a war that will destroy the world, um, yeah.
12/14/2006 4:49:10 PM
Sure, I might consider them wrong, but I don't even know what kind of security you're talking about. Science doesn't operate in secret, you know.
And I wouldn't have a problem with a theistic evolutionist teaching biology, so long as they didn't specifically teach that it was directed by God or throw in any \"intelligent design\" bullshit. I wouldn't even mind a creationist teaching it, assuming that the creationist were both knowledgeable enough and able to keep their religious views out of the discussion (two qualities that would rule out most creationists, however).
12/14/2006 5:38:21 PM
Take notice, theistic evolutionists: fanatical Biblical creationists do not really trust anyone who dares to seriously question a literal 6-day creation 6,000 years ago, either. Boy, you guys aren't trusted by anybody!
12/14/2006 7:58:54 PM
You're security risks, and most of you have no style sense. So there.
12/14/2006 8:49:18 PM
Please don't tell me what I believe. You don't know me, and you're not in my head.
12/15/2006 5:30:20 AM
That depends on what you mean by seriously. If you mean crazy extremists who take every word of the Bible to be literal, then I suppose you are correct. However, I trust many people who believe in a higher power as I know them well enough to know that they are good people. They may go to church, raise their children with their beliefs, (which I personally think is brainwashing) and live their lives differently because of their religion, but I don't see what that has to do with anything. Trust is something that comes through getting to know someone and either you like who they are or you don't (not agreeing with someone on certain points is an awful way to judge someone overall).
