"anytime I try to explain why I think its wrong to believe in miracles regarding religion.." Are you religious? No Do you believe in God or the Word of God, or the stories and lessons within? No I have no contempt for atheist who respect others beliefs, but I have a serious problem with "anti-theist" who break out their wide paintbrushes and paint everyone with faith as an idiot who will buy anything. I have a very deep faith and I do my best to live my life as Christ-like as possible, though I do fall short at times. However, this does not make me any happier about common core, nor does it make me "susceptible to believe in doublespeak". Believe it or not, I don't even believe that 3x4=11. Religion, faith, or lack thereof has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with the acceptance of common core. You should spend much more time working on what is wrong with this country, and wrong with yourself, rather than exhausting good energy to fight against people for having a faith that you personally don't have. It is of no concern to you.
Can I ask one question? Did you ever believe in Santa Clause, the Tooth Fairy, or the Easter Bunny? And have you told kids, or went along with stories about them? I don't believe in them nor do I teach my kids about them. But if You do or have, then you would be guilty of the very teachings that you somehow blame others for.
Besides, what is the point of "try(ing) to explain why I(you) think its wrong to believe in miracles regarding religion"? Who made you judge of all mankind? Just keep to the things that are important, and work towards changing our government. A persons faith, or lack thereof, is not any of your business. It is also a very personal thing and very offensive. Equating the acceptance of common core and believing "doublespeak" because of faith makes absolutely zero sense. It also gives you absolutely zero credibility when you actually speak of something that is meaningful and perhaps helpful to the movement.
So let me be the first to oblige what you knew in the first place. Your rant and need to push the anti theist belief is very divisive. But you knew that already, no doubt about it. Have a great day.
