QuoteWe 'new atheists' have a reputation for being militant, but make no mistake we didn't start this war. If you want to place blame put it on the the religious zealots who have been poisoning the minds of the young for a long long time."PZ Myers
Quote from: bigdavebear on August 07, 2014, 12:15:34 AMatheism has ruined everything. secularism and atheism has brainwashed our children and taken away God from our lives. How anybody can think that's a good thing is beyond me.....

Marxism, Fascism, whatever.Fuck their murderous religious bullshit. Why should their bullshit ideas have special dispensation.

Quote from: SoldierofFortune on January 07, 2022, 04:34:10 PMI believe in the idea that in any democratic society the citizens have to be free for forming and giving their opinions to be negotiated at the national level.However, this cannot always be the case in the countries whose population is very large in size, and whose population is culturally diverse.There must be kinda uniformity in education, maybe just to produce the average citizens of the future, who are now just children but future adults.But then, Ok. For instance, give the Christians the right to establish their private schools and to regulate their curriculum. America is full of wealthy devout Cristians who can make it happen.Here in Turkey, there is a Kurdish movement who demands their right to education in the Kurdish language instruction medium. Politics aside, this is near impossible due to the inferiority of the Kurdish language, not because Kurdish is inherently inferior, but because Kurdish has not been written so much that as far as I know it has not any considerable literary or scientific record of written material. But Ok, let them build their own curriculum in the Kurdish language and it will be nothing but a total failure.But then again, these brain storming of the regular citizens like us who are not able to affect the opinions of the policy-makers on the government level.So my opinion is that, let it be : )
Quote from: ProletarianBanner on January 07, 2022, 04:38:39 PMFair enough, each is allowed their opinion, but I as a "Militant" Atheist, Anti-Theist and Marxist believe that private schools should not exist and that any form of educational institution should not teach religious beliefs.
