I know there are good people who are religious, but it's reassuring to know that a good bloke like David Attenborough believes, like every one of my family from big to little, that you should be nice to each other, not because it's in your own interest ( ie. you'll be punished ) because a big spirit is watching, but because we should. We firmly believe - as the saying goes - that THIS is the main performance, not the rehearsal.

Confucious said this too years before christianity even came into being. The evils caused by religion are far more substantial than the morality it claims to champion. Religion tends to monopolise morality while we know it is an evolutionary requirement if the human race is to survive.

You'll find the 'golden rule' in almost every religion and philosophical code. Why? It makes so much sense, that's why. We are social animals, above all else.

Guest: Creationism, now useless? (3215 days ago)
Creationism was great in the olden days. In many cases it stop people doing bad things because of the idea a judging god was always watching an evaluating them, ready to send them to hell to 'burn' of there sins. Now however we have CCTV and a (crappy if your in Britain) police force. Goodbye Creationism, you now officially f@#?ing useless.

There are a lot of scientists who are Christians who believe that Evolution is god's continual creation. And I'm prepared to accept that.

This is in the Bible too: Leviticus Chapter 25, 44-47. 'And as for your male and female slaves whom you may have-from the nations that are around you, which they beget in your land; and they shall become your property. And you may take them as an inheritance for your children after you, to inherit them as a possision; they shall be your permanent slaves. Nice, huh?

This would come from an Aberdonian "Sam Aberdeen" one of which I am but it has been difficult dwelling among such uptight religious bigots.They must see that there is little difference between them and the Islamists. All religions are cults in my belief.

Greek mythology is just as plausible as the bible. Why, they both provide not one bit of evidence that show any truth. Now lets think out loud. Are you saying that eve was made from adams rib and that they walked along side the dinosaurs. Religion is so far right winged it just needs to be destroyed. Religion is division and the world will be better off without it. In conclusion, SamAberdeen you are in a cult state of mind and will never be free to think for yourself. AND YOU SOUND LIKE A MAJOR ASSLICKER.

@Sam Your god is an evil, genocidal, narcissistic, homophobic dictator with no proof of his existence whatsoever; do you really expect intellectuals to suddenly devote their lives to worshiping him?

Evolution isn't proven but there is LOADS of evidence for it being true. There is zero evidence of creationism. You're not being lead by God, you're being lead by a money making business? Why does God always need our money? Why does it cost so much to run a church? Who pays? "Jesus is the shepherd, you are the sheep." - They even tell you you're a 'follower' - take control of your own life and enjoy it, life has a tendency to not last long.
