My blog posts on religion have attracted a lot of controversy. Religious people are annoyed by my claim that belief in God will go the way of horse transportation, and for much the same reason, specifically an improved standard of living.

It doesn't surprise me. A little more there than some anti Semitic statements.

It should be a crime to be stupid, it would balance the fact that it's a crime to be intelligent in your country.

What is this "Freedom of Speech" and what is Anti Semitism?
Why is it a "crime" to deny that Holocaust ever happened?

Why is it just fine for the men in Islam to rape and murder little girls?

Jews believe in God of Abraham, so your post does affects Jews.
You just wrote an Anti Semite message.
You must be sent to GITMO, pronto.
Publish your home address on this thread, so we send some one to pick you up, or send a couple of drones!!
You and your double standards!!
Why is it fine for MEN in Islam to rape and murder little girls?

But if a WOMAN steps outside in normal clothing, she is murdered in turn?

Women have been murdered and raped and then murdered, for very silly things under Islam.

Why?

GITMO is the ONLY place on earth which is safe from any outside interference.
So this is the ONLY place for people who have "incurable disease".
And Anti Semitism is one such disease.
As for Muslims and Christians worshipping the same God, it is mentioned in Quran "(say to Jews and Christians) our God and your God is one and the same".
And the Millions of Arab Christians have no other word for God other than Allah.
And Jesus' last word on cross were "eli, eli, lama sabaqtani"?
Does "eli" sounds similar to Allah to to God or Deus or YHWH?
Is that not as "iota" of evidence?
But WOMEN under Islam must go around dressed like a package of cheese or worse.

If they fail to do that? You murder them where they stand.

Why?

<quoted text>I agree with your comments on drones, BofQF. Another point is that perhaps they will be increasingly available to terroists as technology become cheaper and more ubiquitous.
Another danger is that they will be seen(around the world) as being justified ultimately by the ends justifying the means.
Oh, yes-- as robotics and cheap computer controls become more wide-spread, we will see more and more home-brew "drones" in the hands of terrorists.

Considering they seem to have plenty of finances at their disposal.

I mean consider this: a very sophisticated battery-operated helicopter can be had for a mere $500 US, including a vehicle-mounted camera? It's only a matter of time before these are adapted to ad-hock "drones" carrying modest explosives into places like never before....

... or even simpler, a radio-control 4 wheeler, carrying a brick of C4....

How hard could this be to a clever and enterprising would-be terrorist?

Answer: not hard at all ... I'm only surprised we haven't seen more of that sort of thing, yet.

Well... "the stupid" is prized by all the world's religions, for it helps to create the sheep that feed their coffers so very, very well.

Just look at the strong correlation between quality education, and the type of faith practiced.

There is a strong connection showing that the more education a person has, the less likely they are to be a Fundie/Zealot-- right on up to full-on atheism even.

The converse of this, obviously, is that ignorance is >>required<< to fund and support all the various True Believers™ and Genuine Whatsits™ of the various branches of insanity (faiths).

If there is >>any<< intelligence involved with True Believers™? It's always, without fail, in the >>privileged<< leadership.

An astute observer will note that the >>leaders<< of these various True Believer™ cults >>never<< put themselves in harm's way if they can avoid it.

In fact, most leaders live a life of luxury-- even as compared to first-world societies.

In direct contrast to the idiot-sheep who comprise the bulk of their following.

Just look at the majority of Republicans in the USA: poverty, or in the lower tax brackets of the economies.

Yet these idiots keep voting in super-rich, old white guys, who >>always<< and without fail, vote themselves nice little luxury lifestyles, with little or no taxes-paid.

As I said? Idiots.

That's OK. Religion can exist in a shrunken, disempowered and irrelevant form, and you won't even know its there - like the Druids. You wouldn't mind Christianity if it were like Druidism. For example, what's the Druid position on abortion or gay marriage? Me, neither, and that's exactly the point. The Christians appear to be on their way to that status, too.
This is an exciting time for unbelievers.

In the real world

the President is a Christian.

Political parties

Yes, that's valid.

But hope springs eternal, as they say.

The hope that one day, humankind will mature into a truly adult culture, and put away childish delusions (faith/religion) is always a good thing to have, I think.

Really?

I figured you, seeing as you are one of those Genuine Christians™, would have bought into the lie that he was a secret Muslim.

Your comment here is somewhat surprising.

Seriously-- it's pretty progressive of you, to admit that Obama is a christian.

I'm also quite surprised you aren't claiming he's not really a citizen...

... that IS how you people work: you attempt to rewire history to fit your fantasy-delusions.

For example: your vain attempt to claim George Washington was... a Genuine Christian™ comes to mind...

Of course they don't -- because of you Genuine Christians™.

You would assassinate an atheist candidate in a New York second.

Your history proves this all too well, I'm afraid.

Now try to come up with evidence on President Washington.

We do not have faith in You as a divinely inspired G-d who we must believe.

List some books you have read?

Look at all this "name calling"....and they would pretend that they have become "adults" by such name calling.

But in reality they are just kids, thinking by name calling, they would win the discussion.

(you are unworthy of more effort--your seething and near-infinite hate is why)

But I see you are now STALKING me-- your hate made you do this.

Sad.
