Bill. You make the point that you do not consider yourself atheist. Fair point.

Atheism is two things in my book.

1. The antithesis of theism.

2. A sneering term of reference used by people who feel they are in some sanctimonious club, and the "atheist" isn't.

Regarding point 1., most people in The UK have never considered theism in order to have a position, and that by the way is an almost verbatim quote from Rowan Williams, a retired Archbishop of Canterbury. My experience working in The USA is that faith is seen by many to be the norm, and here, the opposite. Not universal, but enough to draw a norm conclusion.

Regarding point 2., I find that those who need to bolster a shaken faith in supernatural phenomenon and ascribe it to their version of a god tend to feel better by thinking themselves superior to normal people. Hence the danger of the US judge who can't differentiate between fact and fantasy, but thinks that qualifies him to a position of trust and assessment of others.

Me? Irreligious. Just like the vast majority.

ake: " it is perfectly possible for any rational person, either religious, atheist, or agnostic, to be opposed to "abortion on demand"
But it is also possible for rational persons of all those types to be in favor of the "freedom to choose". The common attitude is that abortion is almost always unfortunate & regrettable, but sometimes necessary. My view is that because rational people can disagree, free choice is the only rational rule to follow. No one should be forced or intimidated to undergo an abortion, but neither should they be prevented from it by those who disagree.


Pete.."... you seem to support the discrimination against bible believers in public office. "

That is not what I said. I said...or tried to say.. that those in public office should not use their religious beliefs in administering their office. Please understand that "bible believers" does not necessarily mean the most fundamentalist ones... such as you. There are many judges, members of Congress and clerks who consider themselves to be good Christians, but who are not Creationists, and who do not assume that the Bible is the final, official word on matters of conscience.
Once again, because even rational believers in various religions differ in their interpretations, the rule should be that *choice* is involved, and that the most conservative view is not the only reasonable view. (Isn't that easy to understand when seeing what the most conservative Muslims sometimes do in the name of their religion?)

When Scalia implies that his religious beliefs may influence his legal decisions, it indicates something beyond just rational disagreement. As I have said often, there are reasons why the word "belief" is used for certain things. If I were to assault you, saying that I 'believe' that you are possessed by demons, I assume you'd want to be defended on the grounds that I have no reasonable proof of such beliefs. My right to act on some beliefs ends where YOUR rights begin... and THAT is why fundamentalist religious beliefs should not be allowed to be imposed on those who do not accept them... and why those who deny various scientific findings should not be in positions where they can restrict what science tells us is good for people in general. They can try to DO science, but if they begin with a settled view of how the answers must be arranged, they are not actually doing science.

(and by the way... I have never called myself an atheist. I am a skeptic.... and a rationalist who has not seen what my reason tells me are good reasons for most religious beliefs)

I don't know what counts for reading on Planet 7, but I did not criticise Scalia having a religious belief. He'd be a better man without one, but that is not the point. I criticised his appearing to recognise total stupidity as valid.

OldTwat - you don't appear to have a leg left to stand on - and at your age your third leg is not going to add much to a tripod. Mind you I'd rather fuck myself than fuck you.

on reflection, modette, it was a poor expression to convey the thought. after all, I don't know any evangelical Christian who is anywhere near as pushy and intolerant as the atheists here that keep pushing their beliefs. maybe, I should prefix...ultra... to evangelical, when speaking of these atheists. apart from a few, in the past , started by keith, the plethora of threads on religion and origins has been started by the usual atheist suspects. I am happy to oblige them though, it will be evident to anyone at all neutral, or of good will, that there is a lot of talk about facts and rationality from them, but little substantiation of those claims.
thank goodness we not got that lot " making decisions that effect the lives of millions !" they cant tell the difference between observable, experimental , testable science like gravity, and the interpretative and unobservable science of origins.

Richards post especially is bluff and bluster. There is , and has been considerable discontent and questioning of the validity of the Darwinian dogma.   And it has not just been from yec,s , of which many are very well qualified , and offer scientific defence of creation. Going down the scale, there are the id,ears, then there is the altburg synposium, which was a group of leading evolutionists apparently trying to find a new way, since the old dogma is done with. And then there is a list of scientists registered as Darwin doubters. Richard try's to imply that dating methods settle it , yet even he says....can be..., not definitely that age. Fact is, they are all interpretations of the data, and sometimes there has been massive age reading differences.   The so called ...fact....of evolution is far from it, and the succession of threads started by the evangelical atheists is only evidence for my charge, since they have not been able to substantiate that bluff and bluster.

olldude has it pretty well dialed in....far above our Brit egocentric maniacs, who still worship their monarch and family.
We in America fought to get away from that type of rule....and then bailed out the Brits when they were about to get the shit kicked out of them...along with the rest of Europe...only to be taken out by another threat, the one of financial take over. To accomplish this goal, they exacerbate every 'injustice' or 'perceived injustice', and even make them up, and politicize them, to being about their tyranny of control.
Just take a look at it.
This is all a cultural backlash to the industrial revolution. Now we are dealing with the technological revolution and the backlash to that. It is a power grab, being felt by most....and by the way, 'religion' means, (literally) 'a way of life'. is politics a 'way of life'??...is greed???.....is being purposely stupid???
Talk about 'fantasy world!!!
The list of 'religions' could go on.

You've got yours, other people have theirs....I guess it defines itself by what you 'worship' and serve. Some people worship their opinions...based on reality or not!!!

olddude says: "The supreme court has all kinds of people all of which uphold the constitution even when it goes against their private beliefs. There would be no abortion or gay marriage or anything else if that wasn't true."

Sadly, that is not quite accurate, nor has it ever been. Abortion was not approved by all of the judges in Roe.v. Wade.

The problem is as noted in the article.... judges are chosen from people, and there is/was wide disagreement as to whether the Constitution even says anything to warrant a decision:

"Opponents of Roe have asserted that the decision lacks a valid constitutional foundation.[50] Like the dissenters in Roe, they have maintained that the Constitution is silent on the issue, and that proper solutions to the question would best be found via state legislatures and the legislative process, rather than through an all-encompassing ruling from the Supreme Court.[51]"

Now, note what that implies.... opponents of abortion are suggesting that they wish the question to be decided locally... as if people in Alabama get to follow a different standard than those in Oregon- just because the 'majority' is more conservative (which usually means Christian fundamentalist). Right now, various conservative states are inventing ways to get around Roe v. Wade by artificially applying laws & rules which restrict the freedom of doctors & clinics to operate. They don't try to overturn Roe... they just run clinics out of business with arbitrary... and usually unfair... requirements. They deny rights granted by the 14th Amendment using rules that are irrelevant to the actual issue. In some cases, a woman in one state can legally request an abortion, while her sister across the river cannot. This IS de facto inserting religion into judicial decisions in ways that SCOTUS can't easily defeat. It is imposing the beliefs of one group onto all groups.
   



Pete says: "bill, why should a public figures beliefs be private, if he is happy they are public. and if that figure is a Christian, profession of his beliefs is part of that faith anyway. I know we differ, but I am surprised if you agree with the ridiculous idea, that this judge [ however elevated ] should be disqualified for believing in creation [ if he actually does - and I hope so ]. I am sure the atheists would be screaming blue murder if Christian America suggested the same about evolutionist judges !."

Well Pete, what I believe is that judges should be chosen according to their rationality. And even though some folks wish to assert that there are 'rational' ways to defend the more conservative aspects of Creationism, this is **NOT** the majority view. Most scientists (as I and others have noted before here) understand & accept that evolution is a rational way of explaining the status of life as we find it.
   Judges are appointed ... and sometimes voted into office... to be fair & reasonable and apply the law- and even YOU will know of instances where they make rulings based on personal whim, careless reading of the law, bribery...etc.
   When bad rulings are appealed in the US, SCOTUS is the ultimate recourse. If they can get 5 members to refuse to hear an appeal, or to rule in ways that negate the opinions of the majority of citizens, we have a problem. The real problem is that Liberal vs. Conservative is not just two sides of the coin, like preferring pie to cake... but in the basic ways the two sides approach decision making. A very conservative judge, often because OF religious beliefs, may rule in fundamentally non-rational ways. When he does so, he is likely to be considered as unfit to BE a judge. If he hides the source of his opinions well by simple rationalizing about the law, he may continue with only suspicions as to his private beliefs, but when he makes statements like Scalia did, his basic competence to BE a judge is called into question!
Now.... there is no easy way to deal with this. The SCOTUS justices are appointed by presidents we VOTE for and approved by senators we VOTE for, which seems like a great way for 'the people' to have basic control over the process, but in the last few years...especially since 2010, when the Republicans controlled how voter districts are apportioned... attempts have been made to deny voting rights to those who are more likely to vote for Liberal senators.
You see? If the very process of getting fair & rational judges is undermined by UNfair & IRrational means, then judges like Scalia will be in a position to flout the Constitution at will and to flaunt their opinions openly.

If this debate were about ingredients in ground meat instead of abortion & gay marriage and similar topics, you'd see quickly that court rulings in favor of companies that try to sneak in dangerous additives to ground meat were irrational & unfair. Why not make the process of getting fair judgments into ALL issues work better?

Fuck, the post eater has done it again.

PiddlyDee – you forget that much Mudcat data was scrambled in the great (mudcat) crash. If you READ it, it's pretty obvious that that was not my first ever post to Mudcat.

OldTwat: you appear to have lost the ability to read accurately or to think. Judges use logic to interpret and apply the evidence and the law. In doing this they reach conclusions of fact. A judge who cannot or will not do that is unfit. A judge who deliberately ignores the vast body of the evidence - evidence about which there is NO serious scientific controversy or doubt - and gives comfort to falsehood is unfit. A judge who gives comfort to creationism is deluded or mentally ill.

The earth is not 5,000 years old, nor 50,000 years old, nor 5 million years old. It's about 4.5 BILLION years old. The first signs of evolutionary change that eventually lead to mankind are something like 4.5 million years old. Lucy can be dated to about 3.2 million years old. Recent publications discuss evolutionary changes in jaw structure about 400,000 years before that.

ANYONE who believes in creationism is stupid, deluded (by religious fantasy or otherwise) or mentally ill.

And if, OldTwat, you can find a moment of clarity in your mental fog, stop to consider that being supported by Akenhateon is not a badge of merit.

You see when the guy was asked about his belief, he answered truthfully. The law is the law, he is absolutely qualified to render law opinions. He is not asking to be a bishop in a church.

but to go back.....why should a judge [ possibly a creationist ] be blasted for expressing/hinting at, his belief.    in fact , if he is consistent with his Christian profession, he will be a more faithful judge. I suppose that if he had said what you atheists believe, that would make him a worthy judge !. but why,- he might get an evolutionary advantage by being dishonest, and course, as long as he could get away with it, he would have no god to answer to ?!
steve, is right though, that democracy means you can get a groundswell of opinion to change things if possible....but of course that goes both ways.

Marriage describing a sexual relationship? Too much information Akenaton. Unlike you when talking of gay couples, the bedroom activities of married people aren't the sort of thoughts healthy people have.

Mind you, marriage can indeed change a sexual relationship. They reckon the best way to stop a woman from giving you a blow job is to marry her... Personally of course, I wouldn't know.

Stevie boy - stay on yur island

There are lots and lots of webfolks that welcome yur type.

Find them. Seek them out. Prim them. Cultivate your kindred kind.

Don't come here. We are AMERICAN folk, blues, jazz, and most of the drivel contributed by the UK contingent is worthy of a piss-pot initiation to Friar Tuck's Band of Morris Dancers.

Sincerely, Gargoyle
