A group for those without religion, as well as those who oppose it. Atheism and Agnosticism and Anti-theism.
Defeating superstition: Level = Pro
Yeah, it's a matter of intellectual laziness. People who believe in something because it feels good or "think" it COULD be true are the ones who will always be religious. Good luck convincing them otherwise. The worst part about them is that these people tell other people to live their lives; and in some cases, try to enforce it through laws and government.
Hence, this is why we have anti-theists.
Christians reject Evolution because it burst their bubble, Evolution makes you look like another species and that death is the end of the line, while Christians make you think you're special, that God has a place and a plan for you in this world.
Not all Christians reject evolution, but from personal experience, they just twist it to their belief system. When I was a Christian, I only accepted what didn't contradict my belief system so I ended up only accepting certain parts of evolution (basically evolution about all other species except humans).
Next time you hear a Christian say they 'believe' in evolution too, ask them how much they believe. I can guarantee most who even say they 'believe in' or accept evolution carry their own watered-down version of it.
It's a good start, but they're still creationists deep down, just like I was. That's why I get a little irritated when people act like creationism is defeated in the US. It's not. Not nearly. Part of the Christian belief system is belief in magic (the miracles Jesus performed, all the weird stuff in the OT like the burning bush talking to Moses, etc).
My point is we're STILL quite primitive and just now deciding whether to surface from the cave. It's about time we did...
