    Can you explain how Natural Selection selected that there should be life as opposed to selecting that there should not be life?

    Can you explain the relevance of that to this thread?

    First expand your question a bit. It is not very clear what you are asking.

    I might see it, but it probably won't have a lot of really intellectual content.

    I think it'll be just about making the point that religion is too involved in our decisions in this country mixed in with these funny quotes from people.

    Overall it probably won't be serious enough to be taken too seriously.

    Looks terrible. Interview people long enough to get a collection of dumb and fundamentalist theists and then paint all theists in that colour.

    It's sad how some people endorse anything that fits their worldview.

    What's wrong, can't take it?

    Many of the people featured are apparently intelligent people - heck, one is a world leader!

    I spit on all xenophobes who use the same tactic of cherry picking. It's a matter of coherence, which seems lacking in so many.

    How can it be cherry picking? He's interviewing senators and people with PhDs. Of course he shows some of the more expremem people too, but this merely goes to show what damage can be done by religion when taken to an extreme level, which can easily be achieved by a smart preacher.

    So can atheism, as can be seen by the USSR example under Stalin. Does that say anything about atheism? No, just says something about extremism.

    You really are so predictable. Man, you Christians never learn.

    Stalin may well have been an atheist, but that says nothing about atheism. Stalin was a megalomanic, THAT was why he murdered people, NOT because he was an atheist.

    How many times does this have to be explain to you guys? It is quite possible to do evil acts for a God, yet there is no point in doing it for no God.

    Stalin did many things. Most were not in the name of atheism, but some were. For example, you DO know that it was forbidden to criticize atheism and this could lead to imprisonment (including being sent to gulags), don't you?

    PS: I'm an atheist. A strong atheist, to be precise. I've said this so many times here, and yet your stereotypical views of the world keep making you label me as a Christian. Jesus wept.
