Re: Banning religious symbols is freedom of religion?
I’ll close with this question: How does a Bible, sitting in a display case, in front of a court house prohibit the free exercise of an atheist’s religion?; Or a Muslim?; Or Buddhist?
Please tell me, in detail, what religion an atheist would ascribe to?

I take it you do not know how to read.....
Preamble to the Constitution writes:
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
God? Nope.
Bible? Nope again.
Jeebus? Nosirree.
Christianity???? Negative.
Religion?????????? Nada.
FSM Bless YOU, Jr.

Re: Banning religious symbols is freedom of religion?
I hope you will become a regular participant.
Doubtful since your incessant use of colors that damn near blend with the background of the site makes reading your drivel a most painful experience.
Ahh, so atheists are of the atheism religion. As if atheism is a religion. Do you even know what atheism is?????? I'll tell you what it is NOT: a religion.
I hope that clears it up for you.
No, you cleared up fuck all. I take that back. You cleared up that you have a preconceived notion of what an atheist is and you are wrong.

Re: Teaching Creation myths!?
I believe what MexicanHotChocolate was asking is ‘should any of the creation stories/myths be specifically taught in science classes as scientifically plausible?’
MHC in the OP writes:
I say evolution belongs in the science classroom and creation belongs in comparative religion...
Dude, you quoted him and you still misconstrued what he said? Mythical stories do not belong in science class. End of discussion. They are not scientific.

Re: Banning religious symbols is freedom of religion?
Take a better look at the rest of the definitions there smart guy. Saying atheism is a religion is like saying not collecting stamps is a hobby or bald is a hair color.
