    Anti-semitism is rooted in the belief that the Jews "killed Christ".
    It is the Bible itself, the very word of God, that tells us that the Jews killed Christ, and so became outcasts and deicides. The Bible tells us the Jews told Pontius Pilate, let the blood of Jesus be upon us and upon our children. The Bible curses the children of the Jews.

I think he used the kissing of a frog that then will turn into a prince as an example and went to great lengths to tell why stories like this are harmful. Ofc being a retard that he is, he totally missed the point of the story which teaches the kids that even tho someone might not be the most attractive person in the world, if you kiss him/her you just might end up with the person of your dreams.

    That guy is similarly deranged as ayn rand is with her objectivism view on life, but its easy to see the similarity between the two as they are(or in ayns case were) both INTJs with some serious complexes that drive them toward on their goals.
    I will agree that fantastic tales should be emphatically taught as vague, symbolic lessons that should not be taken literally. I personally find banning literature a bad move as it limits the scope of thought. Also, some fantasy does a child's mind good, if used responsibly.

    Dawkins definately goes too far on that point, but his support of science is what I find admirable.

    3. and has a demonology.

    Whereas fact is verifiable by one and all because it is reproducible.

    Ideology is meant to persuade while fact is objective.
    While what you said is true, it still doesn't point to moral right and moral wrong...only rephrases my statement more eloquently, really.

    If the distinction right/wrong, or morally right/morally wrong, are meaningless, then we are saying meaning is meaningless.

    But we are meaning creating animals, who perceive by making distinctions.

    So meaning has enabled us to survive and thrive for 200,000 years.

    You are seeking to abolish the distinction and so meaning, I wonder why.

    Perhaps if you accept we create meaning, you would have to accept the God is not necessary to create meaning, and that a meaningful life is possible without God.

    On the other hand you may be experiencing teenage angst and flirting with nihilism.

    Who knows?

    What I see is a universe where everything is relative. What one man believes is moral, another will believe the same thing is a great wrong. I have sought a basis of morality for months with no success. I also see this planet as ultimately insignificant, as if all humans died out, the cosmos would be unaffected.

    I believe if we could colonize the stars, we could spread our ability to reason. Obviously a diety would have nothing to do with that...

    Then there is personal meaning. I feel redundant and worthless and I am unsure if I will survive on my own and not die in some stupid way. Maybe that is angst?

    As an atheist, I think individual choice is exaggerated.

    And atheism means without a god. I'd rather keep it that way and coin some other term for being without ideology (good luck with achieving that, by the way).
    Go to sleep, iguana.

    Sorry to tell you that I'm not attempting to be a trend setter. I'm attempting to talk about an idea, and yes, it's about ideology. I'm not really attached to the actual God/Christian/Jew subject that people are really hyper focused on. Although I do think that many an Atheist is overconfident in their belief in their freedom of thought. This is important to me because, that's the next wave, boyo.

    Atheism just means 'without God' as the other Magic Letter mentioned. Believing that there is no God and understanding the usefulness of the Scientific Method does *not* create a world view, it does not tell people how and why they should behave. It just gives tools to do whatever they feel is important more effectively. It's still all very subjective. I think it's highly dangerous to think otherwise. There's starting to be a feeling of 'One True Faith' in the Atheistic movement, regardless of professed denial of faith.
