Thank you for starting the "creationism" petition! I simply can't believe that this issue is even an issue. I'm sad when I hear about such nonsense in Texas. I'm angry when I hear about it in Indiana. No matter how many believers I ask, I still can't understand why folks will believe things for no other reason than that they "were raised that way". I must add, however, that even though almost everyone I know believes in god, I don't know anyone who believes in creationism. Who are these people?!

Hi Louis,

I'm not comfortable being a boss but it's good to express myself on AN.

I hope this doesn't cause a duplication.

Thankyou for your kind offer to match donations. I hope it has the desired effect of stirring people into action. It would only take every other person giving a little to make Brother Richard's life easier. He seems a good representative for us.

Go Brother Richard!

You had made a reply and, instead of putting it in the discussion, I just sent it to you individually.

And religion isn't the only idea that has been taken up and twisted to reach that end.

It's not the only one, but it beats all the other reasons added together.

I'm not so sure about that. If D'Souza is to be believed (which I have reason to doubt), then religion isn't the worst cause of fatalities in history...I should say worst artificial cause, since it seems ridiculous to talk about deaths with respect to natural disasters and disease vs. manmade causality.

I have always found the whole "who has killed more people" debate to be practically worthless...all this nonsense about claiming responsibility, the Crusades, the Holocaust, witch burnings, the Soviet Pogroms, etc etc. I'd sooner chalk up responsibility to human nature than either atheism or religion; these ideologies can't FORCE people to do anything, as intangible items. They can only influence people toward certain ends, or be used to carry people to certain ends that people will or intend. We might as well talk about which has killed more, swords or guns. It's just our poor fortune that masses are credulous, inconsiderate, bigoted, or too fearful. More on this later, gotta run.

If you'd like me to send you any of the material that I compiled in the book for use in your project, just let me know, I'd be more than happy to help you out.
