Overly religious? I don't support organized religion at all. Atheism is in the same boat.

No, your twisted up version of atheism where it is a cult does not count as true atheism.

Serious, I begin to see more and more that atheism today is more a religion then the pure, non-religious believing.

Hotlines, blaming all bad things to religion, saying that the world is better if there was only atheism on it...

Yep, atheism today is more like any other religion today.

Whats next, a hotline for people who are left-handed?

Thank $deity for DVR, my friends. Or I'd never get to see it all. Don't forget the Cheetos. And in son's case, the Hershey's.

Anyways. Still not seeing a problem with a 'help line for those with questions who are leaning towards non-belief'. Still doesn't hurt me in the least. Nor does it have any affect on what I'm free to believe. Gracious. It's almost like that whole gay marriage thing, if you stop and think about it ...

Yes. Yes, I went there.

My thoughts are as follows.You are being rather bigoted and obviously haven't had to deal with disbelief.Atheism a cult?Please do tell,what rituals do atheists engage in and what do they worship?Oh that's right,nothing.I cannot recall the last time somebody was killed in the name of atheism but there has been countless atrocities sanctioned by fine,civilized,and religious gentlemen in the name of god.The goal is not to convert people to atheism.Don't believe me?Then ask your self what benefits more atheists would have for other atheists.The answer is none;in a church more members means more donations,add that to the lack of taxes found in variegated countries and you'll find that churches are a very lucrative business.

All that remains is to show that biological systems replicate in such a way as to satisfy the minimal criteria required for evolution to apply to them, something which has already been adequately shown time and again. At this point, we've pretty much proven that not only can evolution happen, it pretty much must happen since it's basically impossible to prevent it from happening.
