My Response To CNN's Segments On Atheism
This winging it is tough. I missed making some good points. Oh what the heck. I'll get better at this. I wanted to touch on the fact that Atheists are grossly under represented in jails and that contrary to what Dawkins says, not all Atheists are peaceful and gentle. I think he forgets that we come in all shapes and sizes and we all have different political ideologies.
I wanted to talk about the so called Godless Lifestyle that Preacher Man was talkin bout. An Atheists lifestyle is the same as a Fundies except we don't waste our time praying to an invisible sky fairy, or wasting our Saturdays and Sundays worshipping an invisible man made myth.
And another obvious point about morality is that if a Christian didn't have God or the bible to guide him, would he run around raping, stealing and murdering everyone around him? Are Christians insane without their bibles and God? I don't think so, many Atheists are ex-Christians, and they don't rape, steal, and murder very much.
Here is the CNN segment from last night that I was pretty much responding to:
VALENTINES DAY UPDATE:
Since it is Valentines Day, I took it upon myself to shovel the driveway. The snow was deep, and it took me quite a while to finish. I think I went temporarily insane, because the next thing I knew, I carved out a giant heart in the snow facing my front window:
I know it isn't a perfect heart, but there is no such thing as a perfect marriage either.
I showed it to my wife, and she got a sappy grin on her face. Somebody is gonna get his rocks off tonight:)
