    The peaceful Amish have a culture of incest, rape and abuse, like all religions do.

    Have a great week everyone!

    An Evangelical caller recently said to me that religious faith is medicine for the soul. I suggested that the “Best before date” has long since passed and that he was poisoning himself by continuing the daily dosage. I noticed his face change color.

    Me, to a recent caller to my house.

    @andyhoke –  You know how this site is supposed to be about atheism? But instead it’s just religious about global warming? Can anyone recommend an atheist website that has a clearer focus? thank you.

     

    Thanks for your latest positive criticism. A quick count of the articles in today’s post has about 19 articles directly related to Atheism and the abuse of religious privilege in its various forms. There are a few more covering various scientific topics and one on Climate Change. One article a week is all it normally has about the climate crisis and I will be keeping it going as it is an important topic.

    I know you don’t think it is an important topic as you said the same thing a year ago. You are not being forced to read it. It probably annoys you as reading the truth and seeing science-based evidence that I first verify is not “fake news” before publishing can challenge your confirmed “denier” bias. I can’t help that. I won’t either.

    I will help you though to find another atheist website that your one positive contribution a year will be appreciated. There is a thing called Google that might help so you could visit here. Go troll elsewhere.

    @andyhoke, one of the most accepted pillars of atheism is evidence-based reasoning and decision-making. It’s a push back against faith-based belief systems and psuedo-scientific ways of thinking. If you know of data that contradicts the data and conclusions of the vast majority of scientists around the world, I’d be happy to hear about it. Emotional responses don’t add to empirical credibility.

    My comments to you about a year ago still apply, and remain unanswered.
