Why an Atheist.scientist for president!


A religious president makes decisions based on Faith, the ideal that Believing it to be true is good enough even wen there is no evidence for it, or the evidence shows the opposite to be true.

Now an Atheist scientist expects evidence before making any big decisions, and will revers decisions if evidence is found to counter ones ideals, or goals. (why would you not want a president that made sound decisions over discisions made based on personal opinions and faith?)




Example..: we believe that country A. is building weapons of mass destruction, because my gut tells me so. and so we start a war with them killing millions and invading a potentially innocent country. (plus wasted billions on having are troops over there, plus the cost of the bombs and weapons used. )

Wile the more rational atheist/scientist would seek out evidence before potentially alienating a country for something they may not be doing. (plus find ways to improve are country instead of running it into the dirt for their own agendas.)

We probably already have had an atheist president, it's just political suicide claim anything other than christian.


Are first president was not a Christian but a Deist (he was not a fan of religion). and the people wanted to make him a king, but he turned that down.

atheist and scientist are not synonymous.

Wouldn't make any real difference.

There is no proof a religious president makes his decisions based on faith. Period. I was under the impression it was to get re-elected. Oh, well, learn something new every day.

*clap, clap, clap*

It amazes me how often people confuse science and philosophy. Or science and "belief systems" more specifically. Of course, the type of people i'm referring to would deny that out he wazoo

On to the topic. Why not just say you'd rather have a president who makes decisions based on evidence? Not only would that include a greater number of rational individauls, but it would also exclude scientists and atheists who behave irrationally. Or are we just making sweeping generalizations all around?

You get a sweeping generalization!

And you get a sweeping generalization!

Look under your chairs! Everyone gets a sweeping generalization!

86% of the Scientist in the world happen to be Atheist. So them being Synonymous is almost the case.

Don't think it makes a difference. The decisions are made based on which corporations gave the biggest campaign contributions. Politicians do not succeed by holding strong to a set of ideals, whether they be religious or secular.
