By the way - the ZAKAT which is supposed to be the "charity" is expressed wrongly! It is true that a part of it is charity - but it is what is used to run the country! TAXES ARE NOT ALLOWED!

ALSO NOTE: the video at :0:17 - the person is reading a JEWISH book - NOT MUSLIM! and NOT THE QURAN.

NOTE: The charity is NOT 2.5% of earnings - it is 2.5% or SAVINGS! - NO savings - no payment required. YOU CALCULATE YOUR OWN AMOUNT!

Which is the nicer person (as implied in this video)?

a) someone who gives a sum to charity because they feel it the right thing for a cohesive sociality
or
b) someone that gives to charity because they selfishly fear that THEY personally will have nasty repercussion in the afterlife if they do not do as instructed?

Atheism yet again vilified by people unknowingly groomed to not be allowed to think for themselves by a select “elite” who stand to lose their control/dominance/wealth should they start to do so! Come on you believers work it yourselves, pause contemplate think! it’s not that hard you can do it.

Your god gave you a brain to think, he can’t then punish you for using it even if that was to work out for yourself that he does not exist.

I would also be interested in knowing where they get those numbers of charity donations per group. As for me, I do not reveal my contributions to anyone and I also do not reveal my religious affiliations. If others are like me, there is no way to know those numbers are real.

who cares? if billions of people are doing good and being charitable because they beleve in some kind of god fine. they are doing GOOD.. its not a contest just grow up. just another atheist trying to vilify anyone with another beleif system including those that give to charitable. basicaly your idols tell you god belevers are bad so you have to think of how even giving to charity must be bad as well.... how desperate and hood winked must you be? how low in self esteem to try and make your giving charity "nicer" than when a belever does it.

No one does really care but thats the point! It was not I that has made a non factual video! and nor I that lied about atheist charitable donations in the Video! Nor I that brought up atheist in the place. Just face it if the world was just populated by atheist (who donate more for nice reasons) there would be less need for charity as most of the suffering now, and over the years, has been caused by religion.

Grow-up! No you Growwww-upppppp nurrrrrrrrr

Secular countries give far far more donations and give more overseas aid, based on GDP, than religious non-secular countries. So we can therefore assume atheist are more charitable.

Science and religion! When did that ever go hand in hand? You need read your history again. May be science did improve a bit when the church finally stopped burning scientist on the stake. And don't get me started on evolution...

???? science and religon has ALWAYS been hand in hand. most early scientists were proper belevers!! galileo was a major roman catholic (wanted to be priest). copernicus was religous, newton, darwin, basicly all of them. they just all wanted to understand the world that they thought god had created and it pushed them to find out more. i even learned from this exact website that the man who invented the big bang theory was actualy priest. its only dumb athiests that think religon and science dont mix. its been mixing ever since ever!!

Religion and science were always on the opposite sides of each other. The church has always tried to keep down the discoverys of science. Religion has always had to change its ideas when confronted with science. Science has never had to change its ideas when confronted with religion.

Sorry to chip in here, but you're talking complete rubbish. Science and religion are different spheres - different 'magisteria'. If that wasn't the case, then the overwhelming majority of theistic scientists who discovered or postulated the scientific theories we have today would never have dared, or at least would never have continued to believe. I'm afraid on this one, history is against you. I can't recall reading about the water cycle in the Bible, or about friction and movement in the Quran. 'Guest' is completely right with the scientists he mentioned. Why would the person who first thought of the BBT preach on a Sunday if the two things contradicted each other? Do you honestly think you know more about the BBT or Christianity than Georges LeMaitre?

Within the last half a century or more, the people who are saying that science and religion don't mix are dogmatic atheists. The majority of religious people, and indeed a large proportion of our leading scientists, think that is nonsense. I agree with them.

Religion and science are opposite in the sense that religion begins with the truth, and then tries to fit what we observe with that truth - whereas science begins with what we observe, and then tries to figure out the truth.

That's a lovely Walter-definition. There are plenty of people that know more than you about their religion, and more than you about science, and others who know about science and religion combined, who would disagree with you entirely.

You really are fond of judging people on their knowledge or ignorance. I’m surprised you missed the opportunity to insert your own qualifications yet again. Judge less and you might free up your mind to come up with something interesting.

When evolution became fact, religions had to adapt or look ridiculous. That's how it works - science builds up a picture of reality based on hardcore evidence, and religions adapt by reinterpreting their scriptures to fit. Those that don't are sidelined, like Ken Ham and Islamists still rooted in the Middle Ages.

Yes, agreed. I certainly do respect genuine expertise and judge specific people on ignorance (rather that groups of people like you do). I don't have the time to learn about everything, so I have a healthy deference to those that know more than me. That's not judging, that's just common-sense. If you didn't consider yourself the oracle on all subjects, I suppose it'd make more sense to you. And no, I have never mentioned a single academic qualification I have.

Nice try in redefining 'how science works'! Brilliant. I forget you're an expert in that too. There isn't an awful lot of adaptation of religion strictly necessary to accept evolution, as the theory that the Old Testament is allegorical was around long before Darwin. But yes you're right, people's interpretations of religion are able to adapt if need be, just as science is. I suppose by the same token, the scientists that still maintained flat earth theory was the absolute truth had to adapt when Magellan circumnavigated the globe, otherwise their science would have looked ridiculous. Thankfully for the most part religions and sacred texts don't concern themselves too much with the mechanics of the world - their core content is more about how we should live and why we are here, and such concepts will never be challenged by science.

What's wrong with you? Stop tarring all experts with the same brush. Now you're accusing me of being an expert, in fact many experts all rolled into one. I have never claimed to be an expert in anything. For someone who analyses text for a living, you have an amazing ability to make up shit.

"There isn't an awful lot of adaptation of religion strictly necessary to accept evolution ..." True. The bar is set so low in religion that going from "let there be light" to Big Bang theory is a small adaptation. Whereas in science, one data point out of place, and the theory is wrong or incomplete.

"Nice try in redefining 'how science works'! Brilliant." Thanks. Was I wrong? Oh btw, I wasn't redefining science, I was just looking at a bigger picture.

"Thankfully for the most part religions and sacred texts don't concern themselves too much with the mechanics of the world - their core content is more about how we should live and why we are here ..." Are you serious? If the purpose of life according to your religion is to go to heaven while sending as many infidels as possible to hell, at some point that idea will interact with the "mechanics of the world".

"... and such concepts will never be challenged by science." What "concepts" are you talking about? Science doesn't challenge concepts, it explains stuff. If that explanation contradicts your concept, then that's tough. Either show the explanation is wrong, change/adapt your concept, or be happy in the knowledge that you're probably wrong.

Don't worry; I can assure you that I don't really think you're an expert. Calling you a "science expert" was a barrelful of sarcasm, obviously, obviously, obviously. However, I would be fascinated to hear what you would consider your specialist subject to be, because in the course of our discussions we have chartered a range of territory in which you seem to be thoroughly out of your comfort zone - from theology to philosophy, maths to science, human geography, history, the works. And when you often find yourself sinking, you play your 'cool kid' card of suggesting that knowing and reading things is bad, academia is just abstract and impractical, etc. etc. It's actually endearing. In one thread I even offered to change the subject to one of your choosing but no, you'd rather fumble along. I seriously hope you were picked first for the football team. Anyway.

This is also a simple concept; by referring to experts as experts, you are also 'tarring them with the same brush' as I am - that of knowing enough to be called an expert. It's identifying them. No generalisations or pigeon-holes are necessary - that's your habit, not mine. It's just the same logic with your racism apologetics; by referring to the racists we were talking about as racists, you were tarring them with the same brush as mine, simply of behaving in such a way to merit that label. Remember? It's the relationship between determiners and quantifiers. I don't have time. Google.

"Their core content is more about how we should live and why we are here, and such concepts will never be challenged by science." - "What concepts are you talking about?" Come on. 'Such'; UK Primary Level 3 reading comprehension; the first clause of that sentence - 'How we should live and why we are here'. In more detail, the concept of a good or virtuous life, the concept of a greater meaning to existence, etc. Unscientific concepts. If you're right in thinking that the core content of religion is reaching heaven and avoiding hell, it doesn't interact at all with the mechanics of the world. The mechanics of the world is the science - physics - the way things work. No religions are bothered by that. They're interested in why, and how we should behave. That's why science and religion have coexisted for so long -they rarely tread on each other's toes and simply describe different things. If the Bible or the Quran had tried to explain how water is absorbed by an organic membrane, or if the Origin of the Species had tried to give us examples of how we should treat our neighbours, then there would be much more conflict. It's generally only fervent atheists and ultra conservative religious zealots that don't see that difference; you're in the same boat once again.

No you don't observe thunder.

You hear thunder, and observe lightning.

Spare me the bother and just quickly Google the definition of 'observe'. Thanks.

I'll give you a free pass because I'm guessing English isn't your first language.

ffs it is my first language.

Observe by google means to perceive somthing.

Most people take observe to mean "see" and since you can't see thunder but you can hear it, the word observe is not the correct word to use.

from Latin observare 'to watch',

Watch (someone or something) carefully and attentively: Rob stood in the hallway, where he could observe the happenings on the street

While there are other definitions this is the one most people would agree with when talking about lightning and thunder.

However your right, you could use it the way you did, but I wouldn't.

Religion is nonsense and science is fact. How many times does science have to prove to you that religion is nonsense.

You can pray all you want for god to cure you and you can die, or you can go to a doctor and get cured. Which do you prefer?

Sorry but your wrong.

The church has had many ideas in the past about how nature and the world around us work. All , I repeat, all of those ideas have been proven wrong.

We are not the centre of the universe as the church once taught. The earth does not go around the sun, there is no firmament in the heaven. Heaven is not "up there" as the church used to believe, there is nothing but vacuum up there. The world was not created in 7 days and was not created at all. The earth is 4.5 billion years old not 6,000. There was never a world wide flood. Indians were not punished with dark skin by god. Slavery is immoral yet the bible teaches otherwise. Women do not have to be subservient to man. Adam did not name all the animals since there was no adam and eve, this is a fact even the catholics understand.There is no such thing as a talking donkey. Morality still exists without the ten commandments and for those with little knowledge there are hundreds of commandments. Children do not have to be put to death for disrespecting their parents and you can where multiple kinds of cloth together if you wish, dont worry you wont go to hell because that doesnt exist either.

It's a delight that you think we are wrong. Thank you for your feedback, your opinion is terifically important. OK, I'm going to humour you. Most of what you've said is the kind of emotional rhetoric that people come out with when they've not investigated things themselves, but I'll pretend for a moment you're amenable to rational discourse.

You've done an excellent job at plucking bits of the Old Testament and disputing a literal interpretation. Dawkins would be proud. If only that was the same as proving theism or even just a religion 'wrong'. Let's see - Is turning the other cheek wrong? Is 'Thou shalt not steal' wrong? Is honouring your parents wrong? Was there never a Roman called Pilate, nor a Judean called Herod? Or do you accept that some parts are correct, and others aren't true/false applicable? There are very few parts of sacred texts that try to explain the universe in a remotely scientific way, and mostly they are in the Old Testament. Arguing against a religion because the oldest parts seem factually incorrect is like arguing against cosmology because it once taught that the Sun orbited the Earth. And talking of that, how many scientific theories have been proven wrong? The 4 humours? Flat earth? The geocentric solar system? The elements? Cold fusion? Even Newtonian gravity! We don't have the time to go into it, but please just think about it for 20 seconds. Most scientific theories we have ever thought of have been superceded. But sure, right now "science is fact".

The earth goes round the sun and galileo did time for proving it.

I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use.

Proving the bible wrong for more than 2000 years.

Just ask an ancient greek guy.

Pisa University was founded in 1343[1] by an edict of Pope Clement. Galileo was appointed Mathematical Chair thereof. The Catholic church funded most European educational establishment by virtue of being the wealthiest entity/organisation ever in history of Mankind i.e. no one else had such a mass funds like the Catholics (how did that happen? – don’t get me started on that tangent). So Galileo was paid by the Church so he was even more courageous to stand his ground even when imprisoned and threatened with torture by the Pope! so whwn asked if he was a Believer he nodded yes - like anyone else would unless they wanted the serving Pope's favourite method of torture of a red hot poker up your arse.

That's amazing. Galileo originally wanted to be a clergyman and Copernicus was, so let's not pretend they believed because they were made to. But anyway, your point seems to be that not only were they obviously devout (which to be fair was the default position), their studies and research were actually funded by the church - even though the church didn't approve of the results at the time! Wow! I knew that most of the educational establishments were religious, (so pretty much all early scientific discoveries were made by clerics or religious believers), but I hadn't realised that religions had played such a part in funding scientific discovery. Fascinating. It seems that Science and Religion really did go hand in hand. I don't think that was quite what you were arguing, but thanks for that anyway!

They most certainly did not go hand in hand. The people who were paid by the church were supposed to supply scientific evidence for the bible.

Example: we know the earth is the centre of the universe because god said so and now we need you to confirm this or we know the grand canyon was created less that 6000 years ago due to a quick flood that carved it out in a matter of days, so lets see some science to prove it. This is not the way to do science.

GALILEAO WAS SENT TO PRISON for speaking the truth so how exactly was science and religion hand in hand?, they werent.

And yet Copernicus, a pious canon of a Catholic cathedral, first formulated the heliocentric solar system, apparently funded by the Catholic church - (but he doesn't represent religion to you, right?) The theory caused little controversy in his time and in fact in 1582, Pope Gregory XIII himself used it to reform the calendar - (oh but that Pope doesn't represent religion either, right?) 80 years later, the cause of Copernicus was taken on by yet another Catholic, Galileo, who also apparently also wouldn't have had the money or resources to study science without the support of the Catholic church - (he's not allowed to represent religion either, no way!) Twenty years after publishing, one pope was offended by the presentation of the theory (Yes! Hurray! - finally someone you allow to represent religion), and yet the theory wouldn't have evolved without the church's money and support and his theory was developed for centuries right up until another firm christian (Newton) completed it. Hm. You seem to be a touch selective about religious people.

And within science, it's not just the heliocentric solar system theory that emerged from religion or theism; the scientific method itself (Alhaytham and Bacon), probability theory (Pascal), electricity and magnetism (Faraday), Big Bang theory (LeMaitre), and even quantum theory (Planck), etc. etc. etc. etc. But you tell me that that all these believers, all these pioneers of science were only trying to "supply scientific evidence for the bible", to prove the Grand Canyon is 6000 years old, to prove the earth is the centre of the universe? Oh I see. I better read the Bible again as you're making it sound pretty progressive.

I'm not religious, but only a dogmatic fool with a limited knowledge of history thinks that science and religion aren't inextricably intertwined. I'll leave you with the words of a theistic idiot who no doubt didn't understand science as well as you; "Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind," - Einstein.

The believers are the ones saying there is a god, so its up to them to prove it. I have no beliefs, i only deal with facts. Believing something does not make it fact. Religion has been proven wrong so many times its hard to count. Why would a god give us a book full of misinformation?, and out right lies.

Noah's ark, nice story too bad it never happened.

Although I agree with nearly everything you say, I don't think atheists need to prove their opinions, and neither do theists. I don't expect atheists to prove their beliefs, despite how 'scientific' they think they are, because I realise that both theism and atheism are different emotional guesses and different prejudices based on the culture and environment of the guesser. I wouldn't expect people to prove that the nicest ice-cream is chocolate or the most beautiful colour is blue either. It's a shame most atheists think their belief set is superior to this, but never mind.

Im not an athiest , I do believe there is a God. I just don't believe any of the worlds religions have it right.

Something had to set the ball in motion and science cannot solve that riddle. Does this God have any interest in the affairs of man,? I highly doubt it. Just like mold grows in a petrie dish, i think we may be an unforseen accident in the universe. So far no one with God-like powers has noticed us out here in space, Im afraid of what might happen when they do discover us.

The big bang theory was discovered not invented. No one invents a theory, they propose a theory and then try to prove it. There is enough evidence to prove that it happened. Yet again you let your mouth run off.

The BBT was not discovered. It was suggested, and then has been tweaked ever since. It was suggested and developed by someone who believed in a Christian god, and who went on sermonising to his congregation for the rest of his life. That's why I cringe every time an ignorant atheist assumes the BBT disproves theism or even Christianity.
