Dan Dennett: Ideas on Religion and Evolution


An interesting proposal to require all children in America to be educated objectively on all world religions and their histories. So as to not indoctrinate children without parents biases at an age when they cannot think for themselves.
Also discussions on Intelligent Design, Morality without Religion as a Evolutionary Biological Phenomenon.
A respectful disagreement with Creationism and how it teaches people to think (not think for themselves).

Christians say Science in Classroom. ” Too Hard.”


Christians for Child Education (CFE) in Houston, Texas today, formally lobbied against Science being taught in the classroom, on the basis that it is too hard. The CFE condemns Science as challenging, blasphemousness, and immorally lacks necessary faith based suppositions. The CFE insists that faith is much easier to “simply know” and proclaim with absolute certainty. The CFE attempted to draw upon Science nomenclature, claiming that pure uncomplicated faith is called for by “Ockmed’s Blazer,” and that Science needlessly over complicates learning and hypotheses.

“It [Science] is nothing more but the secular, liberal, abortion hungry, Atheist, blasphemy machine of Socialism, and so called Ph.D.’s offensively calling for rigidly, unholy empirical testing, which demands data to support a theory with evidence,” roared CFE spokesman Stanley ChristianPinkerton, as he furiously pounded his fist on the podium at a “Separation of Church and Reading” Rally this morning, to the overwhelming applause of over 1,000 slack jawed, dead eyed, Bible Belt, Born again Yokels.

Christian Surveys across the Evangelical Churches spectrum showed that 92% of Christians want to abolish Science, which makes learning an inconvenient, wicked, over complicated nuisance that corrupts the soul and simply leaves Christian children confused. The remaining 8% polled could not read the survey, but said they are on God’s side of this issue.

God, a major figure in Christianity was not answering prayers for comments.

Would you rather have Science or go to Heaven?

Pope Adds to Death Count in South Africa


Today about 6,000 South Africans Will die of AIDS.
That is more than twice did on 911.

You can Help with AIDS for 5 dollars.

I know the founder of the Charity in The Video Below. He is a good man. He uses all donations honestly. He and His Family Moved to Uganda to help the Orphans. If you are looking for a Charity, please consider giving just  5 dollars or maybe even more to the Giving Circle. There are so many Orphans in Uganda. A Catholic Bishop said “Abstinence lowered the rates of deaths from AIDS in the AIDS Pandemic.”

Karen Armstrong Religious Scholar “Lecture : Comparative Religions”


Karen Armstrong is a wonderfully well  read expert on historicity of the Bible Q’uaran, and the Jewish Bible. She is very liberal. Probably a believer, however very professional and not talk of theology. Only a scholar speaking upon what we know what, or hasn’t happened in Christianity or the Other religions. I like her as much as Bart D. Ehrman (PH.d.)
Biography 

Karen Armstrong  spent seven years in the Society of the Holy Child Jesus during the 1960s and later wrote a tell-all book, “Through the Narrow Gate” (St. Martin’s Press, 1982) that bemoaned the restrictive life. (The frightened nuns did not know the Cuban missile crisis of 1962 had ended for several weeks; they were not allowed to inquire about the outside world.) Armstrong is still hearing about the book: “Catholics in England hate me. They’ve sent me excrement in the mail.”  Readers who have followed her lately are learning her more optimistic ideas about what Islam, Judaism and Christianity have in common with A History of God (Ballantine, 1993), Jerusalem: One City, Three Faiths (Knopf, 1996) and The Battle for God (Knopf, 2000) which all focus on what unites the three great monotheist faiths.

Atheists, know more about religion than Christians


The Bible

CHRISTIANS KNOW NOTHING OF WHERE THEIR BOOK CAME FROM. I DO. I SEE IT AS AN OUTDATED, BIASED, EVOLVING, TEXT WHICH WAS AND STILL IS FOUGHT OVER BY DIFFERENT PEOPLE IN EVER SECT EVEN WITHIN CHRISTIANITY ITSELF.

THE AVERAGE CHRISTIAN DOES NOT KNOW ANYTHING. WHAT I HEARD WHEN I WAS A CHRISTIAN IN A FUNDAMENTALIST CHURCH PEW – FROM THE PULPIT WAS — NOTHING –LIKE THE LECTURES OF THE SEMINARIANS WHO DEDICATE THEIR LIFE TO DETERMINING WHAT WE KNOW ACTUALLY HAPPENED AND THINGS WE KNOW JUST DID NOT.
