    Here's the much better piece by Nightline.

    A VA. NBC affiliate weighs in

    A San Francisco affiliate weighs in, note how the talking head introducing the piece doesn't mention any hate or disgust while the the VA talking head did.

    Again a local NBC report- what is it with NBC affiliates being up on youtube, are they the only network that doesn't hunt clips down?-, this time Los Angeles

    I loved the 2nd one.

    It was essentially: "And you think your 'logic' is a good way of thinking? What about all the billions of people who don't use 'logic'? How does that make them feel?"

    It's alright, though the whole ''tyranny of religion'' thing is kind of funny.

    But thing is, why dont they even TRY to argue using logic of some sort? of any kind? even abstract arguements?

    Where are non-religious deists? Where are they? Doesnt make sense.

    My views on it is that it will do the opposite of what they set out, if they REALLY want to get rid of religion, just be passive and make sure people dont take it seriuosly
    insulting religion causes people to become polarized, group polarization. Study it? When a group of like mindeed individual stay together, the overall ''general'' opinion of the group becomes more extreme.


    Thing is, without insulting, the time is to wait a little longer when people have an even MORE casual attitude toward religion it self.

    Also standared of living has alot to do with it. Visit lots of poor poor countrries, and in the poorest regions, i wish you luck to find alot of die hard athiests.

    If the overall standard of living is high, people have the luxury to truly question the validity of religion.

    I think that a lot of people are missing the point:

    God-guy: The Bible is the 100% True Word of God (TM)!
    Athiest: There is no reason to think that.
    God-guy: Sure there is. The Bible says it.
    Athiest: Sure thing.
    God-guy: And we need to base our lives, and out government on it!
    Athiest: What are you talking about?
    God-guy: Since I am 100% right, you need to accept God (TM) and the Bible.
    Athiest: I don't want your Bible running my life or my country.
    God-guy: But God loves you! And the Bible is 100% perfect! Our country is based on Christianity!
    Athiest: Fuck your God. I don't believe in the whole Holy Spirit bullshit.
    God-guy: But God loves you!
    Athiest: Not anymore. Your God now hates me.
    God-guy: But God loves everyone!
    Athiest: I'm glad you don't know jack-shit about the Bible you claim is 100% perfect.
    God-guy: Huh?
    Athiest: Your own Bible says that God now hates me for what I just said.
    God-guy: But he'll forgive you and wash your sins clean and white as snow.
    Athiest: Nope. Your 100% True Word of God (TM) now says that I am lost forever and can never be forgiven.
    God-guy: That sounds stupid. All you did was say a dumb little sentence.
    Athiest: I'm not disagreeing with that. You really need to do your homework if you're going to try and force me into the same bullshit that you don't know why you believe. Why don't you look up some of the other 100% Truth (TM), like the stuff about racism, rape, killing, self-mutilation, and slavery. Good "Truth" you got there. Do you eat shrimp on Sundays?
    God-guy: Burn in hell, infidel!

    Especially when they see you can't spell 'atheist' correctly.

    Since it has been proven that religious people are less intelligent than athiests I must protest this abuse of the retarded.

    I wonder if the "Atheists are smrtar than godders!" thing would stay true if you didn't count the retarded rural hick states where everyone loves God, shotguns and their first cousins.
