While Jesus never advocated violence, holy hell, have you seen the Old Testament? The big guy is OUT OF CONTROLOriginally posted by: JS80
If you are truly in the "I don't know" category and you analyze religion with no bias, you would clearly see that it is not religion that causes wars and intolerance, but it is the men in power who wage them. Since when does Jesus EVER advocate violence on one another? Never. Not once.Originally posted by: TheSlamma
I never claimed to be an Atheist. Read my post without your zealot glasses on.. I refer to them as "they" meaning I am not one.. see how that works?Originally posted by: JS80
So you are claiming to understand the universe, it's origin, the beginning, the end, etc.?Originally posted by: TheSlamma
It's hilarious when religious Zealots try to call Atheists as devout as they are or even worse. Atheists don't have to have faith to know the world isn't flat, they just simply know it. It takes quite a bit to have faith in something that isn't thereOriginally posted by: brandonb
Yet you worship human figures like Dawkins and Hitchens, but apparently you are too blind yourself to understand that. You are worse than any religious Zealot.Originally posted by: ICRS
Actually I am against religion. All people who worship god suffer from a mental illness, they have too be. They are worshiping an invisible sky fairy.
Go read some Dawkins and Hitchens.
I sit in the "I don't know" category.. but I do know one thing, religion is man made and it causes wars and makes intolerance totally acceptable (Indians, gays and blacks for example), yes I want to see the death of all religions.
Spirituality I think is a better option for people. When you get people like Jerry Falwell used to do, telling people horrible things in the name of god.. that is an instrument of destruction and a product of man made Christian Dogma.
Only because of the recent rise of intolerant Islam do you believe religion causes wars.
And there have been plenty of non-religious wars. WWII ring a bell? Vietnam? Communism?
