Why Would They Call Evolution A "Religion"?

It always puzzles me when the creationists think they are criticising evolution by calling it a "religion". Because, Surely, If being a "religion" makes evolution, According to their argument, Unsupported, facile, Not grounded in reality and false, it must be a bigger criticism of their own belief, A belief which actually is a "religion".

I mean, An evolutionist would never try to criticise creation by saying "well, creation is just another science based on factual evidence, Supported by practically every scientific discovery, rational and logical".

See, What they are trying to do with this type of approach is instead of defending their own position, They try to make ours seem as untenable as theirs. When in reality all they are doing is proving that even they think "religions" are inherently wrong, unsupported by evidence and, well, made up bullshit.

Make sure you pull them up on this next time they try it.

Saudi Cleric Demands More Oppression Of Women

A Muslim cleric in Saudi Arabia has called on women to wear a full veil, or niqab, that reveals only one eye.

Sheikh Muhammad al-Habadan said showing both eyes encouraged women to use eye make-up to look seductive.

Sheikh Habadan, an ultra-conservative cleric who is said to have wide influence among religious Saudis, was answering questions on the Muslim satellite channel al-Majd.

It makes me wonder if thinking up new ways to oppress women is some kind of Islamic hobby.

This disgusting savages logic is no doubt that showing only one eye will prevent some poor man from being tricked into raping a woman, through no fault of his own.
