Adam and who? I thought it was Steve.

I have some serious re-evaluation to do.

60 years ago, if you'd asked the U.S. population the same question, the answer would have been more like 7 out of 10 or 9 out of 10.

Yet, those people invented manned Space Travel, hypersonic jets, computers, advanced surgical techniques... even advanced photography techniques.

This assumption of "religious ignorance" is ignorant itself and is almost an oxymoron.

Having faith in something can be a hallmark of intelligence and the ability to think abstractly. It shows that the person can imagine possibilities beyond normal circumstance and demonstrates that they can see beyond the use of their senses.

Some of the most deeply intelligent people I've met, who were rich and inventive, were also deeply religiously convicted.

We all walk different paths... why is it so hard for some to show respect for those who walk a path we don't understand?

(edit: For the record, I am a-religious. I do not identify with any religion and incorporate beliefs of many religions into my personal moral code and beliefs. However, I can respect someone who believes something with conviction out of faith, even if I think it is completely false.)

Who gives a fug? Seriously? I swear the atheists and liberal agnostics get their panties more wrapped up regarding others beliefs than any religious person that ive met.

Its almost like harping on it helps your own belief or lack thereof.

I can only guess you've never met a conservative evangelist... somehow.

Im sure if you met a grown man who still believed in santa claus or the tooth fairy you wouldnt say a word, and respect his beliefs. lol

I dont really care what anyone believes, but if you have these dumbass beliefs I see nothing wrong with talking about how ridiculous they are.

Eh, people believe a lot of things that are crap. Some people actually believed that Obama was going to "bring us together". The genesis story is more likely than that.
