You should have told this to yourself before attempting to discredit people based upon their "3%-8%" alleged numbers.
Median,
I am not discrediting atheists. This has been well documented by many studies.

IS ATHEISM A MENTAL ILLNESS?

Here is a study that suggests  that atheism is a form of mental illness:

Hey, your source is biased. You don't let us use biased sources, then you go use them. What do you think this is? Heaven?

Okay, this thread has given me the best idea for a reality show evah![1]

Science Geeks Vs Jesus Freaks!

1)Take 10 evilution-denying, science-ignorant, "prayer will solve everything" home-schooled or Christian-schooled fundies.

2)Take 10 science-savvy atheist nerds. Like college professors, medical professionals or working research scientists.

3)Make sure neither group has much survival experience. No Navy Seals or mountaineers.

4)Put them in a rugged isolated wilderness environment for an extended time, like a month.

5)Give each team the exact same [limited] survival equipment; plus, and here's the kicker: let each team choose one book to bring with them.

Each team must devise a way to provide food, clothing, shelter and basic health care for the members, using the equipment, the natural environment and the one book. The team that survives most successfully wins a million bucks. The groups are not to initiate any contact each other. The first group that contacts the other forfeits the game.

Each season will feature a different environment-- rainforest, arctic, desert, steppe, etc. Viewers can bet on which team they think will win. Imagine Jst, skeptic and orange on one team. Jag, foxy and jaime on the other. Mooby and me can be judges.

The religious team will be able to demonstrate to the world, for once and for all, that all anyone needs is Jesus. My guess is the one book they choose is the bible. If it is not, that says something right there. My other guess is that the outcome, every season, will be basically the same as history has shown the past several hundred years, whenever religion goes up against science in a fair contest. The Christians will contact the atheist science geeks for help. That is what their prayers to god will magically reveal is the best course of action.

Practical, reality-based application of knowledge trumps god-magic, prayer and wishful thinking. That is why the devout Christian Pilgrims would have starved and died--praying to god the while-- if the heathen native Americans had not felt pity for them and given them some food.[2]

Science wins. Religion loses. Every time. Reality bites. Look at how disappointed some Christians are that Tom Hanks did not survive on the island by finding Jesus......why would he, considering not a single island culture ever found Jesus before? http://www.christiananswers.net/spotlight/movies/2000/castaway.html

Sound like a good show? Should we pitch it to Hollywood?  ;D

 1. No, not "Honey boo boo's mother rolls over and suffocates the Kardashians".
 2. And lived to regret it..... :P

Median,

A spirit is something that cannot be seen.


So anything whatsoever that cannot be seen by the eye is a spirit? You see how this definition makes no sense, don't you?

God=spirit
Spirit=anything that can't be seen
Gravity cannot be seen

Therefore, God=gravity?
Median, you are proving my point.  Yes, God is gravity, the only way you can experience Him is to free fall 29 stories.... Seriously, I hope you will not mind if I ignore you.

Thanks Foxy, Christianity is not a new theory, and yes, it was recieved about as well as Einstein's theory was. Let's compare apples to apples. Shall we?

What is this supposed to mean?

Median,
You will have to excuse me if I do not respond to any more of your posts. Unless you have a ligit question, I will not respond.

I already asked you at least 3 times what "spirit" means (which was and is a legitimate question) and you didn't respond.

You, who is pushing prejudices against atheists, and celebrating it, cannot handle similar reactions to your beliefs?

Go figure.

I don't have any questions. You've answered every one with your attitude. And your righteousness.

The answers are bad, but they're yours.

Until you care what we say, you are feigning interest, and that is never useful.
