No offense but why would he care if you don't like it? The majority of people think it's false and some have perfectally good, rational reason to be against religion.

I still don't like it. And no the majority of people on the planet are not atheist.

Didn't say that. Are there not like 4,000 different religions? Of which they don't believe in the same things (obviously).

That said, the majority of people in my country (and the country VGChartz resides in) are atheist :)

Interesting, considering that the theory of evolution states that this is possible and that we are talking animals.

Contradictions?

The theory of evolution states this? Lol, everyone states this. We are animals, that is a fact. Still, they are clearly talking about animals other than humans.

I'm pretty sure you could say the exact same thing about kids from households that told their kids that the Tooth Fairy or Santa Claus exists.

This study is irrelevant unless there's some long term effect on these kids, and I'm going to guess that, just like people who believed in Santa as a kid, that effect is nonexistent.

Not the same, all kids grow up realising that santa ect is not real, probably at an early age too. Everything religious children are taught, are expected to believe for the rest of their lives.

And quite frankly santa clause is easier to believe in than talking animals.



 

Well according to some the bible is fiction, soooooo yeah. -_____-

And what stops other animals from gaining the ability of speech? If apes did it, then what stops other species or the other apes(Planet of the Apes lol) from doing the same?



Well, shouldn't that go without saying if they believe in religion?



Speaking of the tooth fairy, I never believed in that lol nor Santa clause, Easter bunny, etc.....

Millions of years of evoution need to pass. Unless you can stick around, you'll never know if another speices will get to that state.

Dude, it's right in the same article

"According to 2013-2014 Gallup data, roughly 83 percent of Americans report a religious affiliation, and an even larger group -- 86 percent -- believe in God."
