The Lounge / Why is there so little tolerance of "faith" here?
« on: February 18, 2007, 05:17:28 PM »
The Flat Earth Society clearly discourages prejudice on the grounds of race, gender, sexuality and presumably other things, yet some of its members have no qualms about insulting each other just for believing in God. I can see that a lot of the religion-related comments are intended as jokes, but claiming that believing in God makes you an idiot, implies that you have low intelligence etc. must surely be considered at least a bit offensive? Myself I am agnostic, and I do not consider atheists to have any more scientific evidence supporting their position than do those who believe in God. Belief in God is a matter of faith, not of science. Shouldn't people be free to believe what they want without being insulted, just as they should be free to be open about their sexuality?
