The above is what happens when you put your brain on faith-- you lose your mind, and become hate-filled.

Don't lose your mind. Don't become hate-filled.

Stay off of faith.

<quoted text>Animals don't "terrorize" humans, are you that ignorant of the world around you. They protect their young, they protect their territory, they attack when they feel threatened, and of course they are always looking to survive by eating. If the animal is big enough and hungry enough, and you're stupid enough to be in his territory, you just might be supper.
The only animal that terrorized humans are other humans.
I've seen pit bulls kill other animals from sheer blood lust and nothing more. They killed a bunch of rabbits until they couldn't stand up any longer, laid down panting to get their strength back and then got up again and killed all the remaining rabbits and then went to sleep. The rabbits were not a threat and, apparently, were not tasty enough to eat. Pit bulls try the same terrorizing of neighborhood kids. There is no distinction between rabbits and small humans to them. Many animals kill just for pleasure, you twit.

You really should not call your siblings "pit bulls". It sullies the names of these dogs, for one thing.

And it's not very nice to your siblings either...

... moreover, telling strangers on the internet about your wanton animal cruelty isn't a good idea.

You pathetic little creep. If you had spent less time lying on Topix and more time in the real world you might not have had that babyshyt colored house of yours foreclosed on. Too bad Dawkins never offered to give back any of that money you donated to the "cause".

I believe psychology technically defines insanity as believing in non-real things - their larger definition includes the supernatural. So, yeah, insane.
For whatever reason we don't call religious people insane if they belong to a religion with widespread social acceptance. However, if they belong to a small group, we have no issues labeling them and questioning their beliefs, despite all religions have equal evidence to their claims.
Good to see you, Hiding.

If lack of wit was a crime you would be on death row right now.

It's clear to see why you fear seeking professional mental help; if they exterminated all worms in your brain there wouldn't be anything left to make your lips twitch.

Your claims for Christian charity are exaggerated. We see that every time we are able to look at the numbers.

No, your claims for yourself are not evidence of anything. Your posting is the evidence of how your faith has affected your life.

You don't seem to have any sense of what message you send with your talk of aliens, your insistence that your tepid prophecies be admired, your peevish disposition, and your mindless repetitive insults ("oxymoron" and "rational atheist" ) and smirking contained in most posts.

You were supposed to have received spiritual gifts for all of the time and money that you have invested in your faith, and hopefully a little poise, human kindness, and wisdom. All you got was coals. The evidence is that you've been lied to.

The Affirmations of Humanism - A Statement of Principles
http://www.secularhumanism.org/index.php/12
• We are committed to the application of reason and science to the understanding of the universe and to the solving of human problems.
• We deplore efforts to denigrate human intelligence, to seek to explain the world in supernatural terms, and to look outside nature for salvation.
• We believe that scientific discovery and technology can contribute to the betterment of human life.
• We believe in an open and pluralistic society and that democracy is the best guarantee of protecting human rights from authoritarian elites and repressive majorities.
• We are committed to the principle of the separation of church and state.

[snip]

• We believe in the common moral decencies: altruism, integrity, honesty, truthfulness, responsibility. Humanist ethics is amenable to critical, rational guidance. There are normative standards that we discover together. Moral principles are tested by their consequences.
• We are deeply concerned with the moral education of our children. We want to nourish reason and compassion.
• We are engaged by the arts no less than by the sciences.
• We are citizens of the universe and are excited by discoveries still to be made in the cosmos.
• We are skeptical of untested claims to knowledge, and we are open to novel ideas and seek new departures in our thinking.
• We affirm humanism as a realistic alternative to theologies of despair and ideologies of violence and as a source of rich personal significance and genuine satisfaction in the service to others.
• We believe in optimism rather than pessimism, hope rather than despair, learning in the place of dogma, truth instead of ignorance, joy rather than guilt or sin, tolerance in the place of fear, love instead of hatred, compassion over selfishness, beauty instead of ugliness, and reason rather than blind faith or irrationality.
• We believe in the fullest realization of the best and noblest that we are capable of as human beings.

Every liberal democracy in the West is the gift of secular humanism. Limited government, personal liberties, and a healthy middle class with economic and social opportunity are the hallmarks of humanistic government.

Look at that declaration above and compare it to your authoritarian tradition. Your bible has no interest in democracy or rights. It's all about commandments and submission. Humanists esteem education, autonomy and self-actualization. Christianity has no use for any of that.

“Reason is the greatest enemy that faith has; it never comes to the aid of spiritual things, but—more frequently than not—struggles against the divine Word, treating with contempt all that emanates from God ... Reason must be deluded, blinded, and destroyed. Faith must trample underfoot all reason, sense, and understanding, and whatever it sees must be put out of sight and ... know nothing but the word of God." - Martin Luther

"The church doesn't like for people to grow up, because you can't control grown-ups. That's why we talk about being born again. When you're 'born again' you're still a child. People don't need to be born again, they need to grow up." - Bishop John Shelby Spong

"Religion is always in the control business and that's something people don't really understand. It's in the guilt-producing, control business.... and so they create this fiery place which has quite literally scared the hell out of a lot of people throughout christian history. And it's part of a control tactic" - Bishop John Shelby Spong
