    Why won't Jom accept your challenge? Is he scarred?

    I hereby challenge anyone who is willing to the following debate:

    Religion (including all current religions and also any conceivable future religions based on sensible and tolerant holy scriptures) should be systematically, peacefully, and totally eradicated over the next 100 years.

    Gentle opponent, please Private Message me if you are willing to take up the gauntlet. You may choose to support or oppose the motion.
    Darwinism doesn't suggest that we should be all-wise and do what is going to be best for our selfish genes. Rather it builds into our brains rules of thumb which worked in our ancestral past.

    Bored with the current debates. Doubt I'll have any takers but:

    A. Buddhism is primarily and atheistic religion/philosophy and is non dualistic in basis.
    B. Buddhism is not atheistic and believes in reincarnation, dualism in the form of consciousness transferring on/to/into something after the body dies.

    Position: Buddhism is atheistic

    What branch of Buddhism are you referring to here, Theravada?

    Drawing directly from core teachings without reference to school though my opposite may choose a particular school or belief system of course.

    My aim is not to discuss what people believe but what is definitively and explicitly taught and shown, what was intended and why it is correct to think that way (or more properly to not care or dwell) in the context of being a buddhist and why it is actually counterproductive to believe in god or reincarnation of the self.

    Where did you hear that? He's not scarred. In fact they say that his face is so mesmerizing that even the straightest of men would turn gay.
