"illogical, atheistic viewpoints result in mental problems"

By this statement do you mean all atheist viewpoints, atheist viewpoints not arrived at through rational inquiry, or something other? Corry 16:30, 18 August 2008 (EDT)

Atheistic viewpoints are illogical, full stop. If you cannot see this, then you have a certain problem with logic yourself, Corry. Bugler 16:32, 18 August 2008 (EDT)
Easy now, no need to make personal attacks. I'm just asking if the statement means one thing or the other. Corry 16:36, 18 August 2008 (EDT)
Based on the fact that the essay "Mystery:Do Liberal Teachings Cause Mental Illness?" was created eight days ago, I don't think it has gotten enough national traction yet for a central tenet of the "liberal agenda" to be denying "that illogical, atheistic viewpoints result in mental problems" when teaching public school children.

Well, really. Does an argument have to be a hundred years old to be valid? Come on, now. Bugler 16:48, 18 August 2008 (EDT)
This essay is about a supposed liberal agenda of "inculcating an attitude of closed-mindedness" and that denying "that illogical, atheistic viewpoints result in mental problems" is one of the "basic tools of teaching closed-mindedness." In order for a nationwide liberal conspiracy to implement a plan of systemically denying something, that something would reasonably have to possess more nationwide exposure and credibility than Aschlafly's essay, which was penned eight days ago.

Any evidence for atheism resulting in mental illness?

Is there any evidence / citation for the above comment? --BennettC 16:33, 18 August 2008 (EDT)

Yes. Go to the page Mystery:Do Liberal Teachings Cause Mental Illness? and the matter should be explained to your satisfaction. Best wishes, Bugler 16:37, 18 August 2008 (EDT)

Also I have always thought that liberalism and atheism is about open mindedness. For example, atheists do not blindly believe in whatever is written in a book compiled 1400 years ago. Instead he uses the enquiring mind to find the truth about the universe. --BennettC 16:35, 18 August 2008 (EDT)

Atheistic minds are clamped firmly shut to the glory and wonderment of Creation. Bugler 16:50, 18 August 2008 (EDT)
