I have no idea how one separates a liberal from a conservative. The major conservative rand paul is the only one who said the patriot act violates the bill of rights.. Go figure, I don't get it in a million years. Seems like everyone is mixed up lately

Perhaps my belief is relevant after all?

I really do believe that believing in superstition and fairy stories, whilst leading to wonderful imagination perspectives and group hug syndrome (Which isn't a bad thing) also shows a lack of intelligence.

To insist on fantasy as credible is rather insulting at the intellectual level. Still, f=ma regardless of how much you ask your imaginary friend to interfere.

This story is of interest at one level. I support the right of people to believe in their particular sect and good luck to them. But rational people are subject to courts too and in The USA every bit as much as in more advanced societies, expect to be judged rationally.

Leave it at home. Don't pack it with your sandwiches and robe.

At present, the Supreme Court of Canada is the only part of 'government' saving us from a totalitarian regime. The ruling Conservatives are batting zero after twelve challenges to either our Constitution (the BNA Act of 1867 which was finally patriated in 1982) or our Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Without the courts we would be screwed.

When people knock on my door be it for religion or for politics my response is the same. My beliefs and politics is personal. I don't thump my bible nor do I campaign. If Dawkins works for yo , I am happy for you. It doesn't work for me or my political views so don't try to convert me in every thread. You won't like my response

Freedom of religion, pal!
'So-called liberals' only like to cherry pick what they like, in regards to our Constitution....bullshit artist political wanks try to manipulate it, and some insanely inspired morons, try to redefine the vocabulary, and the definitions, just to promote their agendas, in the behalf of politically inspired liars, who are so corruptly bribed, by their 'owners'!

I used to feel really bad when Richard own countrymen would harass him. I figured it was bullying. Now I understand, an ass that just wants to pick fights is the bully. I know nothing of British politics. I could not tell you what a labor is or a bpn or anything else represents. But people decide by vote they are entitled to vote as they see it. People are entitled to believe what they want without harassment by him or anyone else.

Pete - there is no point in giving you facts - you fantasise. It has been demonstrated time and time again, and you come up with new fantasies.

No judge has any business giving credence to fantasies. Deciding the balance of probabilities is what a judge does all day, every day.

If he can't do that, he is not fit to be a judge.

Well, Richard and co, no one is going to accuse you of tolerance are they.   And if you think creation is a idiotic fantasy, I suggest you demonstrate it, instead of tossing around derogatory sound bites. What we had was a judge making a comment that was not even definitely creationist, but such is the evangelical fervour of the atheists here that they jump all over it........and then be complaining when theists respond !

But of course, the statement from Dawkins is universally true only if all religions are the same. Dawkins has an annoying tendency to make broad, dramatic, and rather witless condemnations that his fans find quite witty....

All religions are the same in that they share the common delusion that God exists. That unites religions far more than any contrived differences separate them. You would find Dawkins witless, wouldn't you. He would find you to be the perpetrator of a groundless and evidence-innocent myth that, worse still, you have no compunction in passing down to your children. I know which attitude I prefer.

The problem is when these jerks start believing their personal religions should be universally accepted and religious rules should be treated as law. Supposedly, legislating according to religion isn't constitutional, but these guys don't understand the Constitution, or maybe they just think they're right and the Constitution is wrong. It's so frightening these days because every once in a while, they get away with their attacks.

This sounds like a non story. I hope he is a bible believer, but even if he believes in the evolution story, there is nothing illogical in what he said, he might just be covering the bases. And to conclude that such a learned and experienced man is unfit for a post simply because he MIGHT not have the same religious bias as yourselves, strikes me as an unsound assessment .
