Re: Why try to 'convince' creationists?
"If we do away with religion, we do away with so much history, culture, music, literature and drama that we'd pauper ourselves as a society in the process.
@Kiwi, we have done that all ready!"
to be fair, Dagg, that was my post not Kiwi's. I'm an atheist, but not an anti-theist, and I can't imagine being iconoclastic in the name of atheism as being of any use to society. Christianity, as a whole, had a tendancy to absorb cultures it came to dominate, unlike certain others that, even now, are trying to bury past cultures that "offend" their "sensibilities".
