The Pastor on our oldest daughter's reserve is telling people that getting the H1N1 shot is a sign of a lack of faith. Grrrr

Well, it is. I actually admire him doing that, he is actually putting it on the line. Reject science, stick to faith.... Nothing wrong with that.

And to prove atheists don't all have one mind and have differing opinions - I dislike what the pastor is telling people. It means H1N1 for more people. Even if the pastor's people are 'healthy', they may be 'healthy but infected'. 'Healthy and infected' people are worse than 'incapacitated and infected' since they have more chance to spread the virus. Which means more chance of infecting someone who may have trouble with the virus.
Is the pastor also telling people to stop planning for the future? (Matthew 6:34), etc...

Why does God have time to create a new flu virus every year, yet we haven't had a new animal like the platypus or giraffe in a long time?

Ginx, stop it - you're making the theists think.

It is a sign of a lack of faith, so says the atheist. It's a sign that your faith in science outweighs your faith in God's omnipotent power, love, and grace.

I think you should get the shot in the arm you need, and put archaic "superstition" behind you. Join the dark side--choose science! Have a good one!

I think what he's doing should be criminal.

Oh yes, this is where religious people get their cake and eat it too. We will deny the realities of evolution, but once we get an infection or illness, we know enough to go to the doctor and seek treatment.

At least he has the nerve to stick to his guns.
