Conversations with theists on facebook. Enjoy lol

Ok so this is my first time making a blog so if things are not perfect I apologize. I erased the last names of the people involved in the discussion except for mine, my name is Ryan Darden. Also when I saved the comments I forgot to open a few of them up to see the whole comment so they were cut off, my mistake, will try to do better. Ok so hope you enjoy.

I can remember throughout school starting every morning with a prayer and... "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States Of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all !!!" We no longer do that for... fear... of Offending someone !!! Let's see how many Americans will re-post this & NOT CARE if it offends anyone

 I DO NOT want to offend, BUT I do stand for what I believe in. Everyone has their opinion and I have mine, being from America, I can voice mine freely thanks to all the past present and future soldiers.

to make other people do something just because you think its right is wrong!! it would offend me if me or my kids were forced to pray anywhere!!!!

 Simple, put it back in the the schools for the parents that want their children to say a prayer, and if you dont them to, then they should not have to. But as far as the Pledge of Allegiance, this is what MY country stands for. If you dont like it, DONT LIVE HERE.If living here is better than where you are from, stop whining about our countries values.

 I agree with you Cherin. Even to this day when the pledge is said at school, I stand, cover my heart and gladly voice the words. I am also proud to say that one of the schools I work in offer at time "for prayer and meditation" giving the students a choice. Nobody seems to have a problem with a prayer being said before football games, so why not a school day? I am proud of my God, my country, and the people who serve daily so that I can have a choice. I certainly don't care who I offend by utilizing this right!

Think about it. EVERYONE who has become a naturalized citizen had to pledge allegiance to our flag and country aand God, SO why are they oposing it now.

I have a problem with prayer being said before football games!! by the way I never said anything was wrong with saying the pledge of allegiance, just the prayer. Also making kids do something just because there parents thinks its right is also wrong!!!! kids that are young enough to believe in santa clause should not be forced to believe in a religion, its sickening. just sayin

 Totally with you here. We have moments of silence here and they can be used anyway the kids want...whether its to pray(any religion they choose) or just pause and reflect. But, Hell yeah.... if you don't like our flag, pledge, or country...LEAVE!!!

 Ryan, till u have kids, just saying. U know darn well that if u did, u would be teaching them what u believe. I have that right to teach my kids about God and anything else I want. Knowing that when they got old enough I respect them to make their own decisions. I might not approve but it is their own decision.

 Everyone has a right to the way they feel and how they live their lives. I don't believe anyone should push their views on other people. Ryan, you are a good friend and I respect your views but please keep the negative and trash talking to yourself. I have known for a very long time that you don't believe in the same God I do. I will not judge you for that so please show everyone here that same RESPECT.

There you go again acting like what you believe is actually true lol Its not, just because mommy and daddy taught you it was true doesn't mean its true, go follow up on some science subjects and get back to me. Religion hope and faith and science is based on facts, I think ill go with the facts, plus I have common sense that tells me how crazy religion is.

 Ryan DARDEN! If you are as smart as you are claiming, you will know that there are many different views in the science community. FACT!! SCIENCE is about theories. Some proven some STILL NOT! AS a self proclaimed smart person, why dont you take a big box of legos and put them in a big paper bag, shake them up and scream bang. I promise that when you pour those legos out of that bag they will not make ANYTHING, much less the world. Remember that. THEORIES!! Not all of them are fact.

Human evolution, or anthropogeny,[1] is the origin and evolution of Homo sapiens as a distinct species from other hominids, great apes and placental mammals. The study of human evolution uses many scientific disciplines, including physical anthropology, primatology, archaeology, linguistics and genetics.[2]

umm ok Christy lets see, theories are based on other facts so that argument holds no ground at all. Evolution has been proved to be fact by the way. I dont think im some super smart person I just know what I believe is true, you dont have to be super smart to believe what I do, all its take is some common sense. My reason for my hatred of religion is because of so many reasons!
