They can do what George Carlin proposed and praise “The Big Electron” It doesn’t punish, it doesn’t reward, it doesn’t judge at all. It just is.

Absolutely - it’s a religion and so CANNOT be supported by the federal government or established as the de facto state religion under the antiestablishment clause of the first amendement.

Atheism is not no religion. They cannot prove there is no God. They are acting out of faith alone.

They are also wrong, but that’s not the point.

I can just hear the atheist prayer now. “Dear Heavenly nobody, thank you for nothing.”

Don’t they already have non-religious chaplains?

They call them bartenders.

GI to atheist Chaplin, “I don’t believe in God”, atheist Chaplin to GI, “me neither, see you again next week.”

So, when the “Church of Evolution” is officially organized, does that mean evolution won’t be taught in government classrooms?

Church of Evolution?

Does this mean evolution is no longer a scientific theory but an act of faith?

Various universities have “humanist chaplains”:

http://www.harvardhumanist.org/

I suppose that the military might have “humanist chaplains”, and learn from the ones at universities how to dispense the meaningless treacle that they probably dispense. But an “atheist chaplain” is the same as a nihilist “chaplain”, which doesn’t work one bit!

If you don’t know, I’m an Orthodox Christian, so you see where I am coming from on this issue. Christ is Risen!

This is so comical that it has to be ordained by God personally. Romans 1:18-32. :)

Once they're in the foxhole, they'd better learn to express fortuitous changes in their alleles VERY rapidly.

(And I guess now that the front lines are integrated, they can *attempt* to propagate the genes: but waiting for the next generation will likely prove a bit problematic.)

Cheers!

>>Still it would seem that those who profess an absence of belief can’t really be religious or spiritual chaplains.

But the nature of that belief isn't for the State to judge - because as history shows...

...who, being themselves but fallible and uninspired men, have assumed dominion over the faith of others, setting up their own opinions and modes of thinking as the only true and infallible, and as such endeavoring to impose them on others, hath established and maintained false religions over the greatest part of the world, and through all time...

--The Virginia Act For Establishing Religious Freedom
--Thomas Jefferson, 1786

Same old Bull manure, different pulpit. 

American faith, and the relation of the Individual to their Creator, is rendered in the hearts and minds of those FREE individuals - not in the state-sanctioned religious plumage of some vestigialy indulgent Roman parrot.

"Grail?  We already got one!"

They can hire this guy to be their "chaplain".

He's being discussed here (Especially see the "comments" section.)

The uniform insignia would be a problem unless there is a symbol for The Void.

And what about agnostics? Their Chaplains could use a ? for their insignia.

The evolution of mammals is only possible with HETEROSEXUAL relationships...

The teaching that matrimony is a sacrament gives to a religious clergy the power to judge the lawfulness of marriages and power of ecclesiastical censure for divorce.

The government of men's external actions by religion, pretending the change of nature in their consecrations cannot be esteemed a work extraordinary, it is no other than a conjuration or incantation, whereby they would have men to believe an alteration of nature that is contrary to the testimony of sight and of all the rest of the senses.

The idea "thou shalt marry and be given in marriage" is corrupt and degenerate, which is an impossible immortality of a kind, but not of the persons of men.

Ecclesiastics would have men believe they are not worthy to be counted amongst them that shall obtain the next world, or absolute resurrection from the dead, as inmates of the world; and to the end only to receive condign punishment for their contumacy of monogamy as opposed to the freedom of the polygamy found in nature.

These supposed "atheists" and their ilk ignore the greater premise and scientific fact that mammals can only evolve heterosexually.

And whether either of the philosophical combatants like it or not, this idea is supported by the book of Genesis and is an absolute law found in nature.

There has never been one case of a hermaphrodite (genotype) mammal ever recorded.

Slowly we move to a total disregard for spirtual development in order to facilitate worship of our government mother. obama is yo daddy. I say this in jest, but look at the models—see Mao, Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot—all eyes must seek the comfort of the collective we call government. Just as ancient Rome worshiped the emperor, today’s progressive politicians seek the same path.
