I think the religious element of conservatism has become an albatross. That being said I don't ascribe to atheism for the same reasons why I don't ascribe to religion.

@Dexter

Atheism is nothing less than another form of Religion.

Atheism is nothing less than another form of Religion.

Up to including proselytizing.

ROFLMAO! That means Communism comes in a distant 2nd place to Christianity.

Truth to tell,Communism seems to have stolen the ideas of Christianity,and used them as a pattern. The prime difference is they substituted Marx for Christ.

@sneakypete

Pete, that's a DU argument, and it's as wrong here as when leftists try it.

Lay out some facts about the more than 100 million killed by Christians.  Let's see them.

The teachings of Karl Marx have zero to do with the teachings of Christ.  I've never seen even a leftist try to claim that one.

You can be as hostile toward Christianity as you want, but you need more than a nonsense argument.

Even DU can get something right every 10 years or so.



>>Lay out some facts about the more than 100 million killed by Christians.  Let's see them. <<

Start with the Old Testament,and work your way up through the Crusades. While you are at it,don't fall in love with the 100 million number because the PERCENTAGE numbers of those executed in God's Name are higher when compared to the total population number at the time.


>>The teachings of Karl Marx have zero to do with the teachings of Christ. <<

Right. Christ wasn't into socialism and sharing your food and possessions. Nor was God well-known for being open-minded and loving. Remember,according to YOUR instruction book,he is the dude that created Hell so the people who disagreed with him could suffer from unbelievable pain and torture for all of eternity. Not even Stalin or Mao could touch that one.

Are you SURE you have read the Bible?


 >>I've never seen even a leftist try to claim that one.<<

Most likely you refused to listen. The ironic part is the commies would have been as outraged and shocked as you if you had to told them that Marx stole his main ideas from the Bible.

>>You can be as hostile toward Christianity as you want, but you need more than a nonsense argument.<<

There is nothing special about Christianity. It is no better or more evil than any other religion.

@sneakypete

Well, I could give you statistics, but your mind is made up, so it would be a waste of time.  We aren't going to change each other's minds.

But among the other things you get wrong here, you don't even know why hell was created.  You don't know what you're talking about, Pete.

Will you please learn how to format your damn posts already!

Bullcrap, you've been here longer than me.  You should know how to do it by now.  It makes quoting your posts a pain.

Make sure you start typing after the last bracket of the "[/quote]" at the end.
