Talk:Why atheists care about religion

From FreeThoughtPedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Contents

The section on the Sept. 11th attacks.

It is a well known fact that Al-Queda are an incredibly radical organization. So much so that they shouldn't and for the most part aren't recognized by Muslims. The belief that by killing an infidel they are granted into paradise is horribly inaccurate. In their religion, if they commit suicide they must relive the moment for eternity.

response

I don't know Al-Queda. Do you? What's your contention on this group and their relation to other Islamic factions? What you heard on Fox News? Where's the references in the Koran on the issue of suicide, and is there no other text that might contradict this? I simply wouldn't take for granted, one way or another, any of these positions as being authoritative. --Pile 10:34, 6 January 2008 (CST)

Please Allow Edits to this Page!

There is a punctuation error in the following sentence:

Even moderate theists who respect the separation of church and state, help protect the extremist factions...

Obviously, the comma must be removed. Normally I would just edit the page and not say a word, but it is locked, and so now I have to make a big deal out of it. Any of the following would be fine:

Even moderate theists who respect the separation of church and state help protect the extremist factions...

Even moderate theists (who respect the separation of church and state) help protect the extremist factions...

Even moderate theists -- those who respect the separation of church and state -- help protect the extremist factions...

Atheists are typically intelligent, well-read, well-spoken people. Syntax errors do not become us. Please do not make me call Lynn Truss. That is not an empty threat.

Ok

Registered users can now edit the page - I was getting some defacement which is why I locked it. --Pile 08:45, 14 September 2008 (CDT)

edits reverted

A user changed references from him/he to her/she. This is not in keeping with proper English grammar so it was rolled back.--Pile 20:49, 3 January 2009 (CST)

Makes no sense

This sentence. "Churches are tax-exempt, yet they consume as much, if not more of public-funded resources." As much as what?

Nothing on same sex marriage?!

There's nothing on same-sex marriage. No mention of California Prop 8. -- Dandv 00:05, 13 August 2010 (CDT)

response

Feel free to add a section... good idea--Pile 01:16, 13 August 2010 (CDT) I personally dont see the point of same sex marriage. The world carries on through babies being born and replacing those who die...this is true in the animal kingdom as well. When a male and a male marry, no offspring is produced. So whats the point? Seems kinda counter productive. Just my thoughts and let the hate responses begin :D

Bush anti-atheist quote

The quote attributed to Bush 43 is actually by Bush 41. GWBush has repeatedly said atheists are decent folk. I created this account to fix the error, but no edit links are on the page. GWBush 20:28, 23 December 2007 (CST)

Thanks - I fixed it.--Pile 21:02, 23 December 2007 (CST)

I would really like to see an original source that Bush '41 said that about atheists. As far as I know, only one reporter made the claim that Bush said this and no audio recording of it can be found.

response

Sorry, but your inability to not find a non-source is not grounds for the comment's removal. If you can find a reputable source for Bush saying he did not say that, then I will remove and correct the entry. Otherwise I see no reason for it not to stand. It has a reference. Plus it is consistent with his character. --Pile 19:00, 20 April 2011 (CDT)
