Thirdly, you call religion evil. Without religion you wouldn't have a conception of evil. Sorry, but "evil" requires a moral system and morals come from religion. I'm sorry but you're a walking contradiction.
Excuse me? I'm atheist, I have no religion. Are you saying I have no morals? Morals do not come from religion, thank you very much.
Fourthly, presumably you are looking to the birth of modern atheism in the French Revolution for your foundation in reason, no? Why don't you see where their atheist morals got them? Dare I mention... guillotine?
The Enlightenment, Renaissance, The Greek Sophists, and many of the founders of our way of life were atheist/deist. You're Christian, right? Dare I mention the Purges, the Crusades, the Inquisition, the planned slaughter of Native Americans in the name of Christianity?
I laugh at all those douchebag atheists who boldly set out on a quest to bring all the world's religions to their knees. They have utterly missed the point: by affirming such strong belief in atheism, they are effectively religious themselves - unquestioningly loyal to the altar of no gods. If they were really the "rational" people they claim they want everyone else to be, they'd sit down and shut up.
Quite. Reason comes from understanding, not fighting.
Birthdays are stupid, IMO.
Why do you celebrate the earth being arbitrarily close to the same spot in the solar system as the place where you first stuck your head out of your mother's vagina?
I suggest we just replace every birthday with gift-giving day. So much more worthwhile.
What is the ultimate assumption of science? That we can observe the universe to describe it objectively?
More that the Universe is quantifiable and through enough observation, we can predict everything in the Universe completely accurately. Of course, then we got quantum physics... *sighs*
