ZachKlever says CONSIDER: If you are Christian would you be happy if it was "In Allah We Trust" or "In Atheism We Trust". Put yourself in other people's shoes.

    It hasn't been there for centuries (guest from Maine) it's only been there since 1954. Furthermore I, as an athiest, find that it excludes us in our scociety. What if an athiest ran for president; how would they "swear in"? Not on a bible; but no one has thought of alternatives. It's not fair to other beliefs (other than the three major world religions).

    Christians and Muslims, like myself, have the same God. But "God" in their context can be any god, so I don't think it's bad.

    The context is clearly referring to the Christian conception of God, so now all people of a different religions and non-believers alike have been alienated for no good reason whatsoever. Muslims and Christians do not have the same god by the way, one look at their holy books shows this pretty clearly

    Yes they do. So do the Jews. They just have different names. And we believed He did different things

    The same person/being cannot do contradictory things and cannot have contradictory attributes. The Christian God (as depicted in the Bible), the Jewish God (as depicted in the Hebrew Bible), and the Muslim God (as depicted in the Koran) have each done things that contradict what the other two have done and each have attributes that contradict the other attributes of the other two. By logical necessity these are three different beings.

    In all three He has the same characteristics (not necessarily things He did), and is from the original Abrahamic religion, Judaism, that was passed down directly to Christianity and Islam

    They are more or less derived from the same basic conception for sure. But they are mutually exclusive beings at this point.

    Why would people want to change "in God we trust" because it has been there for centuries and only thoroughly retarded people would change it

    Because it is divisive and it violates the Constitution.

    It seems oxymoronic, as the church and state are separate.

    one does not "trust" in atheism. atheism is not a belief system. one does not need to believe in science to know it's true

    in all honesty who cares its not going to change anyone's life if its the motto or it isnt the motto

    It could help to change the "This is a Christian nation!" mindset that too many Americans these days have. This is a secular and inclusive nation and having "In God We Trust" as our nation's motto goes directly against that.

    The whole "In god we trust" thing came out fairly recently in US history, and somewhat undermines the separation between church and state to have it as an official motto.

    Supreme court said that you do not have to say the pledge of alligence plus, god is universal whether you are Christian Jewish or Muslim.

    Each of those three religions will claim that their god is different from the other two. And "In God We Trust" is only referring to the Christian god. And what about other people like atheists, Buddhists, Hindus and other non-Christians?

    It harms the inclusive feeling people of different faiths should have in this country. Also, slavery used to be "part of our culture" and "the majority liked it" as well. I think you could agree that those two things do not make slavery a good thing, just as they does not make the divisive motto "In God We Trust" a good thing.

    dont get rid of it. Respect tradition and other peoples views.

    Using "respect tradition" logic would bring back things like slavery. And by "respect other people's views" you mean "respect my view". If you truly respected other people's views you would want to get rid of it.

    I love to use slavery as an example because it is something hopefully everyone understands to be a bad thing. I feel it best helps me prove my point.
