    ...and neither is the insidious tradition of religious superstition that has diseased civilizations for thousands of years.

    How pathetic it is to gag up a throw-away phrase as if it contributes anything meaningful.

    If you want your baby to survive in good health, throw the damned dirty bath water out and quit telling everybody how rotten it is for them to imagine a world that isn't chronically infested by a tradition of superstition.

    You tie cultural and family values inextricably to religion. I have Good News (TM) for you! Religious superstition doesn't own those human virtues. Religion has no monopoly on human virtue and goodness. Religion is NOT the necessary life-kit you think it is. Get the picture?

    •  And you completely misread my comment (0+ / 0-)

      I didn't say cultural and family are only available thru religion but you'd have to be a pretty colossal liar to say they weren't heavily influenced by it.

      Sure, crap all over religion if you want. Hell, there's ample evidence for doing so.

      And when you're part of a tiny, bitter minority wondering why nobody wants to work with you to solve big problems maybe you can reconsider your approach.

      GOP 2014 strategy -- Hire clowns, elephants, and a ringmaster and say "a media circus" has emerged and blame Democrats for lack of progress. Have pundits agree that "both sides are to blame" and hope the public will stay home on election day.

      •  The lie is certainly "colossal"! (0+ / 0-)

        I did not 'misread' your comment. I responded to it because I understood it.

        How dare you insinuate that my comment in any way suggested that religion doesn't heavily influence culture.

        What the hell is the matter with you?

        Are you accustomed to being a liar?

        Your response? I hear you loud and clear. And I read sincere bullshit.

        I clearly read you crapping on people who have the temerity of exercising an opinion contrary to yours, and you get all agitated and have a cow.

        You seem peculiarly split. You knock at me for crapping on religion, yet you allow that there is ample evidence for doing so. WTF? Are you nuts too?

        Let me tell you something. When YOU inevitably become part of that tiresome and thankfully dwindling tiny minority of apologists devoted to propping up the incredible superstitious nonsense façade that is religion that has not ever in the slightest advanced the cause of human progress and enlightenment, and has not after thousands of years yielded the slightest clue to people just like you to quit acting like assholes toward each other, I will happily stand strong amongst the growing number of like-minded people who are sick and tired of people JUST LIKE YOU who think they have a premium AUTHORITY over what people ought to think.

        And I'll tell you right in your face here and now, your response is an obnoxious bastardization of what constitutes decent human behavior, pal, and you are perfectly free to mischaracterize my response as the 'bitter' outcome of a very very small and ultimately inconsequential mind.

        •  Nice to see you can quote Dawkins (0+ / 0-)

          Did you just finish reading The God Delusion last week?

          People like you used to make me embarrassed to be an atheist. But then I remember you're just an embarrassment with or without atheism in the mix. Have fun being bitter and resentful, it's obviously what you're good at.
