Here's what you get when you let people spout off in a free unmoderated website:
Religion is all made up
Most people know down deep that this is true, (ad populum fallacy) which is why they only revere people who heard God’s voice in ancient times, while admitting that modern-day people who hear God are insane.
This is truly a boring generality. Why do atheists like this illogically post opinions as facts?
Without God, there would be no holy wars; no genital mutilations; no prosperity gospel; no anti-science bias in education; no tax-exempt churches; no denial of global warming; no blaming sin for hurricanes and school shootings; and no soccer stadiums filled with 10,000 men who have come to watch another man decapitate a woman.
There are some facts this atheist, as well as other atheists, gleefully ignore:
1. Wars are mainly territorial conflicts. The most costly wars in history didn't happen over religion.
2. The "proseprity gospel" is a product of man, not God.
3. Where is the "anti-science bias" in education? All public educational institutions feature science classes.
4. Not all global warming skeptics are religious believers.
5. School shootings ARE a sin.
6. If God is responsible for public decapitations, it should be more than just a localized phenomenon.
Liberal believers aren’t as bad as other believers because their God only exists as a mile-high stack of harmless metaphors. Unfortunately, their rejection of evidence and reason in “matters of faith” still puts them on the side of ignorance and superstition.
This is pure arrogance, and silly besides. Placing "liberal" believers above fundamentalists simply because they treat God as mere brain candy is just ridiculous. Even more ridiculous is this atheist's claim that religious believers are superstitious and ignorant. Some very brilliant minds believe in God. This poor atheist needs to get out from behind his (I assume it's a "he", anyway) PC and get some fresh air.
When the religious right persecutes atheists for trying to keep America from becoming a theocracy, religious liberals support the persecuters by remaining silent. Fortunately, 20% of Americans no longer have any religious affiliation, and their number is growing rapidly. Most of these people still believe in what they call something, but at least they’re not trying to make their beliefs into laws.
Oh, puleeze, show us where the poor atheists are being "persecuted". As far as I've seen, it's the atheists who raise a stink and run to the ACLU or the Freedom From Religion Foundation at the slightest mention of God in a public school or on the wall of a courtroom. The whole claim of a "theocracy" is overblown paranoia on the part of atheists, who demand a tolerance they are seldom willing to show.
By the way, it's 15% of the people surveyed who have no religious affiliation, and the number hasn't grown much in the last few years. Village Atheists love to spout phrases like "growing raidly" without bothing to show any statistics to back up their bantering.
More's the pity.
