Atheism in Debate, Politics, & Religion Posted March 18 13 hours ago, Reality vs Adventure said: That's how you create 'scientific martyrs' like Galileo who the Catholic church prosecuted for saying Earth revolves around the sun and not the other way around. Church and state should always be separated, otherwise science gets attacked. Under the trump administration, he banned 7 words from the CDC: diversity, entitlement, evidence-based, fetus, science-based, transgender, and vulnerable. And they also interfered with CDC reports about Covid to disinform the people, and even appointed a goon to put in charge of the CDC who was forced to go on leave of absence for being delusional, inciting violence, and being extremely politically polarized. I don’t understand how you could ask if atheism is right. You categorize atheism as a belief but it’s not an organization. They don’t get tax breaks for being atheist. They don’t knock on your door. They don’t baptize. And they don’t sing choir or hymns from scriptures. Atheism isn’t right or wrong. It's just rational. Well, myself, despite conservative views, I have to admit the "idea of eternal Hell" was a misinterpretation of scripture. I mean, with the Bible teaching that, it's not surprising so many are cynical of religion. In fact, much of the church for a long time was highly corrupt with corrupt scripture. The Bible, itself, calls it religious Babylon. It's in Revelations.
