"Yep, the only "adaptation" possible for religion is erosive movement towards classification within the ranks of other discarded mythologies. "

Loren Miller replied to Moe's discussion The atheist paradox
"Religion isn't adaptive, it's reactive.  It's reacting to attacks against its putative authority while attempting to maintain that same authority.  Its problem is that, being based in a lie, indeed a series of lies, it truly…"

Edward Teach replied to Moe's discussion The atheist paradox
"It's part of human nature, belief in a deity or an afterlife is not an inherent part of human nature. On the contrary. Human perception is terribly fallible. The human mind is a meaning generating, pattern seeking machine. In the…"

Edward Teach replied to Moe's discussion The atheist paradox
"Human beings are meaning-makers. We create meaning in a million different ways, art, music, dance, growing plants, friendship, love, dedication to helping animals or children or to saving the earth, etc. You surely have activities in your life where…"

Ruth Anthony-Gardner replied to Moe's discussion The atheist paradox
"I disagree that religion is adaptive today. Perhaps a thousand years ago having a religion gave a population an edge in competition. Today's survival challenge isn't to compete with neighboring populations for apparently limitless…"

Alan Perlman replied to Moe's discussion The atheist paradox
"Provocative, but not the atheism I practice.  Skepticism/humanism is not arrogant about absolute truth; it claims only temporary truth.  Secrets of existence?  Hell, I'm just trying to get through this life alive and without any…"

Alan Perlman replied to Moe's discussion The atheist paradox
"Well said, Loren.  Let's face it: the atheist is a profound threat to beliefs and practices in which people have invested enormous amnounts of time and energy.  To live freely and happily without any of this crap must be profoundly…"

Edward Teach replied to Moe's discussion The atheist paradox
"I would agree that superstition is "natural" to the human animal. Likewise, rape, bullying, theft, over eating, sloth, and child molestation are also "natural" to the species. However, through the use of tools like…"

Moe replied to Russell Pangborn's discussion How Many Atheists Do You Personally Know
"None, most people around me are Moslims, some Buddhists/Hindus and a few Christians."

Karl replied to Moe's discussion The atheist paradox
"I've always had an issue with equating Atheism with science.  I can understand why the two would be linked in people's minds.  I view Atheism as embracing the rational and abandoning the irrational.  For example, believing…"

Alan Perlman replied to Moe's discussion The atheist paradox
"This is a very provocative post.  I have very little to add to the excellent comments that follow -- saved me the trouble of writing them. There is a clear bright line between science and religion (which may not be all that evident to people…"

Moe replied to SNM's discussion Koran Translations
"If you wanna learn about Islam, don't red quran because it's not like the bible, and it will not make any sense to you. Read hadith or perhaps wikipedia."

Moe replied to Tabitha McCoy's discussion Naturalism
"I guess I'm a naturalist, I have always thought that my human made surroundings (books, cars, buildings, etc) were a product of evolution."

Loren Miller replied to Moe's discussion The atheist paradox
"Religions generally only adapt or evolve from considerable pressure.  Keep in mind, insofar as they are concerned, THEY HAVE THE TRUTH, so why should they NEED to change?  The RC church castigated Galileo for his assertion of the…"
