"Nobody, including yourself, can be “absolutely sure” about matters for which there is no cognizable gauge."

Did you miss that statement? I laugh in the general direction of these weak rebuttals. An Islamic Empire could not exist because most of the world's free women aren't too hyped up on slavery.

Haha Zeality, because you know every aspect of the Sharia law and how people of Islam and other religions live with it.

You think that where there is absolute science, religion has no chance of existing.

The rest of your post was predictable, and unremarkable. But this error of your perception is worth at least a cursory correction. I don't see religion and science as opposites. Few well-informed people do. And I have explained this before in considerable detail in other General Discussion threads--as your conveniently faulty memory no doubt forgot. Religion and science have no relationship whatsoever, except that religious people tend to dichotomize them. While there is a degree of oppositeness between the currency of religion--faith--and the currency of science--reason and evidence--religion and science themselves are two completely different concepts.

Let me waste another twelve minutes of your time. Nothing you said destroyed the chance of there being God. You seem to think that religion and science are two distinct opposites, something that is present in the minds of some of your worst enemy's, CHRISTIAN FUNDAMENTALISTS. DOO DOO DOOOOO. You think that where there is absolute science, religion has no chance of existing. Personally I don't think of religion to be something born out of ignorance, and many parts of religion seem to be born out of the opposite.

I'll say something I have said before, but on more intimate terms: you accuse religions of not coexisting peacefully with other religions/ideas yet you yourself publicly state that you are disgusted by religion, and would want it destroyed. I can't see much different of that and people that think having the world rid of certain races, sexual preferences or body characteristics good. Even on a personal level - of someone not minding anyone elses business and just going day by day following their own religion - you find strange and laughable.

Sorry if I'm sounding like a broken record, just saying what I want to say.

Oh, one bad thing that can come out of both religion and the absence of religion, as displayed so greatly in many threads, is belittling your opponent. Way to prove a point.

EDIT: Something Lena said reminded me of what one of my older friends said. He is a very wise guy, who even though is sorta mentally retarded, is very political and, well, smart. "The world is too corrupt for an Islamic Empire to exist."

I told you he would, didn't I? its the inablity suspend disbelief all atheist have. they all do it, and it pisses them off that other's can, so the will point out and belittle whenever they can the folly of other religions.

I lol'd.
