    After the initial bump of the motorcycle, he cyclists decided to commit two crimes against the family. The bikers attempted to assault the SUV family and unlawful prevent them from escaping danger.

    This story reminds me of the burglar who slips and falls while robbing a house and sues the home owner. It makes me sick!

    Science will win this argument as more is discovered about the origin of the human species. Slowly Christianity will die out without any need to prove it wrong, the way religions that have come before it have dwindled away. It’s backward belief system will do all the work just as dead religions that have come before it. Has anyone ever bothered to prove that Thor, Ra, or Zeus don’t exist? Yet, people stopped believing in those gods without proof.

    @Charles116, it is true, a missing link would likely utilize religious dogma to explain away the forces in nature he or she could not explain or understand. This is precisely what is happening in the comments here.

    Your understanding of the word “scientific theory” is incorrect and therefore your assumption that evolution is nonsense is in itself a nonsense statement. A scientific theory is an explanation for something (hypothesis) which is backed up and can be tested by supporting data using the Scientific Method. Evolution is a scientific theory which has been tested by using strong supporting data which would place it in line with what you would consider a fact.

    Creationism is neither a scientific theory nor a fact. It is an assumption which manipulates the supporting data to support the hypothesis that the Earth had a creator. It is assumed the hypothesis is infallible and the non-supporting data is either disregarded or ignored to support the hypothesis.

    Is it likely that bronze age people with no scientific knowledge of the world were able to correctly determine the complex origin of our species?

    The news media is trying to instigate racial tensions and a riot after the verdict. They keep saying “possible riots” over and over to plant the seed should the verdict be not guilty. Cameras will be placed around the city after the verdict to give rioters the motivation they need to cause death and distruction. If you or I instigate a riot, we go to jail, if the media does, they get awards for journalism.

    Do any of the Christians here care what the Islamic Imams say? Do Christians loose sleep at night worrying about going to hell because they chose the wrong religion and haven’t accepted Mohammed? Nope! That’s exactly how Atheists feel about Christianity.

    @hatchetjob: Which God are we talking about? There are over 3,000+ religions in the world with thousands of Gods. I just wanted to clarify which one you were talking about.

    Speaking of intolerant, would you let your daughter marry an Athiest? How about marry a Muslim and raise your Grandchildren in the Islamic faith?

    To understand why people may not want to see the cross on public property, consider this scenario.

    You’re a Christian living an American city that is predominantly Muslim. The Muslims place a symbol of their faith on the water tower. You’re upset because you know the city government is run by Muslims who now favor Muslims and you realize the contempt with which the predominant local faith views the minority faiths or non-believers. If you don’t believe the dominant faith looks down on other faiths, would you let your daughter marry an Atheist? Would you support a gay son or daughter? Would you go to a neighbor’s special religious event at a temple or mosque?

    You voice your concern but are shouted down with verses from the Koran, detailing how you will go to hell for not being a Muslim, that you should convert, and how the symbol on the tower stands for love and happiness. You don’t believe in Islamic hell, the Koran, or how the symbol on the tower represents peace and harmony because you’re an non-believer when it comes to Islam.

    You want the symbol removed because it is a religious symbol of government favoritism and you don’t want to give the dominant faith any more reason to look down on you or others like you.

    So before you pretend that you can’t understand why a cross shouldn’t be on public property, consider how other people view your faith and your faith’s treatment of non-believers. People don’t see Christian symbols the same way as you
