"You are right about using terms like true when talking about something. True does imply a sense of complete understanding. ...hastily written rhetoric. I stand by my placement of fear as a prime cause of religious belief. You and I are basically in…"

"So am I, and I agree. If a person completes a liberal education (where multiple viewpoints are considered and the student is taught how to think for him/herself) wouldn't he/she be much more likely to deduce the better method for education...…"

"Thank you for your response. When you use terms like 'true fear' you devalue your argument. It presumes that there is some ultimate form of fear and that you know what the definition of it is. I don't think fear is the necessary cause…"

"Religion is a problem. If you follow a religion you have a problem. Someones problem (if they are like your brother) may not be as big as the problem your religious fanatic nut ball of a neighbor may have, but a problem nonetheless. I am of the…"

"I agree. Give a person a fish, they eat for a day. Teach a person to fish and they eat for a lifetime (choosing good morals based on proper teaching of both the application of logic and dedicated, habitual responsibility--sticking to the plan)."

"yep, and this is where I think we'll have difficulty. Parents often want to make sure that their child is raised in a similar religious-social network and group. To argue for this, I don't think that we should focus on the abuse that…"

James replied to James's discussion When is it okay to believe in a Religion?
"Well said. You make a great argument. Wouldn't this 'right to conscience' agree that children should decide for themselves which belief system they prefer--rather than a parent determining it for them? And if every child was given a…"

Hiram replied to James's discussion When is it okay to believe in a Religion?
"I do not feel that atheists should aspire to tell people what to think, this is dangerous ground to tread. Violations of freedom of conscience, of rights of conscience, are the reason why in many places atheists are at the margins of society, and…"

Mister Harvey replied to James's discussion When is it okay to believe in a Religion?
"I am a new comer to the atheist community but it strikes me that the "Richard Dawkins wing" of atheism engages in gang-like behavior. Don't get me wrong, I love Dawkins and am in the middle of an effort to read every book he has…"

MrBiggMan replied to James's discussion Liberal vs. Conservative
"1. Liberal means generous, open to change, and forward thinking - also implies government having power. Conservative means cautious and traditional - also implies government having less power. 2. I hate government, so I am conservative in that way.…"
