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.

And when did anyone here discuss this Anne Marie person? Oh that's right they didn't you are just spam blasting the board again.

Indeed we see how barbaric the bible and Quran are. And actually the NT says let he who is without sin cast the first stone.... So your knowledge even in your mindless spam is lacking.

File-sharing isn't just a good way to get the latest episode of your favorite TV show. It's also a religion. Kopimism is an officially-recognized faith in Sweden, and has established a church in the US too. Its credo? Copying information is holy.

Founded by Swedish college student Isak Gerson in 2010, Kopimism was recognized as a religion in Sweden last year. The name is a play on the phrase "copy me," and Gerson told New Scientist that he and his fellow worshipers had had "this faith" for many years before solidifying it into a religion. He added:

We worship the value of information by copying it ... Information is the building block of everything around me and everything I believe in. Copying it is a way of multiplying the value of this information.

I hear in Islam if you are buried with a dead pig on top of you then you get 127 virgins and 3 palaces! Even better if your remains are fed to pigs Allah loves it!

Again you are back with many dozens of your questions and doubts and self answers and then more questions.
The rule of "everything has a beginning" does not apply to God. Because He is not a "Thing"
And if you think that these Physical laws created themselves or came by chance or evolved over time, then you are in need to consult some Mental doctor.
So please just limit yourself to one question per episode.
I have neither time nor intention to answer these dozens of questions.
So why does God defy the logical rule "everything has a beginning."?

Yes, but like Jedi, Kopimism shouldn't be confused with Abrahamic religions.
http://www.jedichurch.org/
They use religious language and many people who put Jedi on the UK census forms were using absurdity to object to the wording of the question, which seemed to presume that people normally have a religious faith. There's the Satanist Church, the Atheist Church and other 'atheist religions'. They're generally without superstitious beliefs and often aren't taken seriously even by many or most of their own founders and followers. I know because a contributor to Topix's Atheist Forum explained why he put Jedi on the UK census form and I know someone else who did. He is a jovial atheist who happens to enjoy things like Star Wars and Dr Who.

If doing anything beyond having a laugh, they seem to be trying to make a point. They don't really worship anything; nor hold any particular world view, ideology, or problematic dogma. They don't interfere in politics, science, morality, education or law much either, so far as I can see.

So both Bible and Quran agree that adulterous men and women should face death penalty.
Now coming to the Sex Life in Secular society, you are not satisfied with your partner… and divorce is expensive….and second marriage is taboo (and Police will come knocking on your doors, if you commit this heinous crime).
So you go and establish sexual relations with another women…and if you do not like that women, then with another women….there is no limit as long as you both are happy.
But is any of the relations become "complicated" (i.e. girl gets pregnant (due to her not taking "precautions" or you not taking precaution) etc.)….then you wash off your hands with the matter….and leave the girl to deal with the matter.
What else is difference between living in heaven and in Secular society.!!
PS:
In religious society, you have to divorce the girl (which is not expensive) or marry a second wife (which is not expensive).
But living an adulterous life is taboo. But Police will not come knocking to your door.
Some one has to lodge complaint and bring four eyewitness to confirm his allegation against man or women.
Living in religious society is as great to living in heaven as on this earth.

Dumb Muslims. Your country is becoming the laughing stock of the world.

Deporting men so they don't arouse your women covering those same women from head to toe in black cloth so as not to arouse the men.

No wonder all your women are frigid.

I've heard that Muslim men refer to foreplay as "defrosting the refrigerator".

We respect people's right to sexual freedom while you think it's a good idea to kill them.

You are a barbarian.

"You are a woman. Your husband is violent. He rapes and hits you on a regular basis. You fear he will do the same to your daughters. You never agreed to marry him in the first place but you had no choice. You want out – you want a divorce. You want this fear to go away – you are tired of feeling nothing but fear from morning to night. You are tired of the humiliation. He treats you like a slave. He demeans and degrades you. He physically and sexually humiliates you. Your confidence is gone, you feel worthless.

There is only way to save yourself (and your daughters) and that is to get out. You need a divorce, but there is one problem. This can only happen if your husband agrees to it. Either that or a group of clerics who believe that he has every right to treat you the way he does agree to it. "You are trying to break up a family" they'll say (you are breaking up a family, not him). "You're so selfish" they'll say.

That's that – no divorce for you. You'll have to take the abuse because you are worthless anyway and it would be a sin for you to claim otherwise. Too cruel to be real? No. This is how sharia law works. It is also similar to how Catholicism worked when it had political power.

Women in secular countries don't have to put up with this; because they live in secular countries."

The fact that no one who has died has ever came back pretty much opposes your god's existence. If there was an afterlife, people would come back. So if someone did die and come back, that would support an afterlife, thus, only if you claim one exists would killing yourself be able to provide evidence that you are correct.

I like James Randi's version of communication from the afterlife. The 'spirits' never say where Aunt Millie's last will is hidden. Instead they make nonsensical comments like, "Your nephew's name begins with a letter in the alphabet between ''b' and 'w'......... LOL
