I'm developing an extensive guide and 3 part series on how to not be an idiot for the religious section. Perhaps other people who do not visit that section could benefit from it as well. Here you go, this is part 1/3 http://www.debate.org...

You just threw a ball into the minefield.

Sadly, it will probably be ignored

If the ball bounces far enough, it'll eventually find the mine :)

In all reality, it's actually impossible to stop these individuals from being idiots. Possibly this is due to basic genetics, learning difficulties, or circumstantial difficulties for them.

When I become a millionaire, I may consider setting up a *special* centre for them where they can receive some proper help for their problems, the theists and atheists alike. Within it will some nice climbing frames, full DVD access for ONLY universally rated films (their minds can't be hurt too much) and weekly visits from children's entertainers. If they are very good, they will even get to go on outings and occasionally be let out into society--with a 1 dollar budget to spend on gifts for themselves.

I just think it's the right thing to do...don't thank me, I'm just a really nice person :)

Commentator on Hillary Clinton: 'If Clinton is now what passes for progressive, maybe this country deserves Trump.'

Commentator on British parliament: 'All that talent in one place, where is Ebola when you need it?'

John Kerry on words: 'These aren't just words, folks.'

The easiest way would be to simply not add your opinion to anything.

Some funny stuff has happened in that thread, and I think nobody sees the irony. You can't make this stuff up guys
