"Those people aren't doing what they are doing out of ignorance, they are doing it because of their religious beliefs."
These aren't acts of ignorance then? I know you don't mean that, but it really sounds like you're just out to disagree with me.
"Can you please tell me what would incline a true religious person to become a scientist?" The same thing a non-religious person would; the pursuit of discovery and information around the observable universe. What one would fare of the unknown is determined by religious alignment, refusing to acknowledge the known is ignorance. And of course there's no proof of God; they're beliefs.
Yes I understand Dawkins' point. Thinking a deity controls everything beyond our understanding can interfere with the will to uncover it. I want to think Dawkins wants to openly support the pursuit of science as a constructive counter to this issue, because shaming religion has been will make everyone go nowhere fast. There is nothing to debate about religion.

I honestly can barely even muster up the energy to waste time answering you.
"There is nothing to debate about religion."
There is actually plenty to debate about religion. And I was hoping that you had a decent understand of how truly screwed up the ideology of religion was, but seeing that you think there is nothing to debate about, I'm realizing I was wrong thinking that about you. I won't argue about science conflicting with religion, because that's obviously a lost cause.
Let me give you a number here:
46% of Americans take the bible literally. Does that not scare you? About half of Americans think the bible is the literal word of the creator of the universe and was all put into a book before there was even a hint of modern science on the planet. So the earth was created around 10,000 years ago, and Adam and Eve were actual existing people. Along with every other story in the bible, 46% of Americans perceive the bible as a history book. I could go on and on about this, but how can you truthfully say to yourself that there is "nothing to debate about."?
That percentage worries me, and it should do the same to you. The stories in the bible would be perceived as crazy talk under the context of anything except religion. But just because it's religion, it receives a buffer. Just like you saying there is nothing to debate about. It's about time we stop saying that religion is above scrutiny, because it is not. Nothing is above scrutiny.

The point is there are people (both theists and atheists) that regard the extraordinary claims of some religions as wild and absurd, and the extraordinary claims of other religions and somehow less absurd or more valid. I simply asked the question why? Why do people want to believe some religions but not others; they all make wild assertions and provide no evidence, so what differentiates some claims from others. I stated that people who reject some religions because their claims seem too crazy, but accept the claims of other religions because they somehow see them as less crazy are complete nutjobs.
Also why do you think this comes off as if I don't know what I'm talking about? I don't see where I made any false statements or illogical arguments.

But lets be reasonable, wich one of those sounds more logical to you? And as far as ''the same amount of proof'' goes. It has been proven that there were crusifictions at that time period but i haven't seen any proof that flying spaghetti monsters are real. Religions are also based on cultures and indoctrination (Repeating the same thing over and over again until someone believes it.)
#34 - thereoncewasaman (05/31/2013) [-]
Like I said, crusifictions are not proof that jesus was divine or that any religion that believes so is correct. Also, there has been as much proof for the existence of a divine being as there is for the flying spaghetti monster, that's just a fact.. Logic has nothing to do with it, considering both of these things are highly illogical. And yes religions are based upon cultural beliefs at the time the religion was created and are kept going though indoctrination, but that doesn't make them correct. If the flying spaghetti monster had been pounded into our heads from childhood on then we would probably believe it existed.
#36 - thereoncewasaman (05/31/2013) [-]
Yeah that's true, I simply posed the question because I want people to think hard about why they actually believe some stuff but not others. Unfortunately the people who have responded to me about this have no answer, so I guess they are still trying to find their brains.
#37 - zeref (05/31/2013) [-]
Well i think the reason some people like to believe in an religion is because it offers the guidance and/or security they need and because the religion they chose appeals more to them then other religions. People who like to eat bacon for example woulden't want to have a religion where they forbid that (muslims.) Old people tend to believe the hardest because they are scared of death so they want to believe in heaven to ease the pain.
And sorry to all muslim people here for only using your religion as an example, i am just tired since it is late atm and i coulden't be bothered to think up some more. I would also like to say sorry for any grammar mistakes since i don't live in a country where english is the native language.
#38 - thereoncewasaman (05/31/2013) [-]
People like to believe because it is comforting to them, but that's a poor reason to believe. Ignoring reality to take solace in what you want reality to be like is dangerous. Believing because something matches up to your values is also a poor reason to believe, but I won't get in to that. It just surprises me when people say there is good evidence that what they believe is true, and then offer up nothing that is actually evidence and refuse to be persuaded that what they said was wrong.

"The Lord preserves all who love him, but all the wicked he will destroy."
"Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him."
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life."
"And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”
