Trying to get this one straight... help me out.

Atheists parrot everything they hear from the scientific community, blindly, without doing any research... But christians who are confused about our founding father's practiced religion are merely having faith... right?

  • Not sure if all atheists do not do research. Not sure what you are driving at regarding Christians confused about our founding father's religious practices. Can you be more specific?

  • The "founding fathers" were not all Christians. Most were Deists.

  • I think its arrogant to assume anyone hasn't taken the time to understand what they believe or why. I know there are many who do not, but we can't just assume everyone doesn't. And its not a matter of believers vs. non-believers, though many try to make it seem that way to make whatever "side" they're on seem more valid...
