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.

The weak minded will always lean on religion as a crutch. The unwashed, rotten teeth crowd known as the Middle East double time Allah the moon god is all they have.

it's safe to say that muslims have never heard about atheism, good luck trying to convince them about scrapping their religion. there is one thing that the communists were right about when karl marx wrote that religion is the opium of the people. just look at what is happening in the middle east and north africa or anywhere else were religion is taken to seriously.

I actually read that Karl Marx was very likely a satanist, especially right after high school. Online documentaries and even poems written by Marx appear to indicate that during his childhood and teen years, Marx was indeed a Christian, but after high school, Marx completely turned over and became a satanist. Still more preserved poems and stuff written by Marx during his adulthood have even revealed that Marx had developed apparently a burning and raging hatred for both God and mankind. And not long after Marx's fall from God's grace, Marx wrote the Communist Manifesto and presented it at some sort of international socialist whatever it was. And as everyone can see, the communist manifesto is brutally tearing society apart. Homelessness, hunger, destroyed families, rampant illnesses, a huge wide gap between the rich and the poor that is being pried ever wider. Because of the communist manifesto, numerous nations are collapsing, some have allready collapsed and even devolved into iron-fisted dictatorships (for example, Cuba, Zimbabwe, and North Korea). Even recently, in 1991, the communist Soviet Union collapsed. And now America is also about to collapse (see http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/Evils%20in%20G... for more proof). I suspect that the communist manifesto may have had somewhat of a role in both world wars.
Not to mention dogs and cats living together, eh?

Take a deep breath, Tom. Step way from the keyboard, collect your thoughts, and then think about composting.

It will benefit the environment.

A leaf! Yes!!! That's it! That's the answer I have been searching for all this time! If there is a leaf on a tree or one that falls to the ground or gets eaten by a bird that is proof of God! Oh do forgive me oh lord the one true God in heaven please excuse me for being open minded and wanting to see proof! Yes forgive me King Triton you are the one true God who made that there leaf thingie on the tree behind my house. Save a busty mermaid angel or three for me ok?

Comrade He who...
I had tried twice to read your links and my computer had warned me not to look this link.
For your kind information Karl Marx is a German Jew.
But still a person of fame in all 5 continents.

Reincarnation is a old myth that prevails still in high-tech computer communication age.
Given as fact: There is NOT an infinite amount of matter in the Universe. EVERY living cell on Earth is made of matter. When cells die, will YOU tell me, & everyone exactly WHERE this matter goes. Does the tooth fairy sweep it all up and dispose of it in a parallel Universe? Or the sock monster,does it hide it all along with millions of missing socks? Reincarnation MUST take place in order to utilize ALL available matter on Earth that is relevant to living cells. If anyone cannot grasp this fact, I say Get a life. Your illogical train of thought is that, when anything dies, the matter that composed that being, is somehow heaped-up, NEVER to be used again. How stupid can ideas get? Never heard of compost? Like it or not, we EAT compost in one form or another. ASSISTING reincarnation. NO MYTH, old or otherwise, computer age or Jurassic.

Whether one believes in a religion or not, and whether one believes in rebirth or not, there isn't anyone who doesn't appreciate kindness and compassion.

Comrade
I am of the opinion that recycling the imperfect product will not make the environment congenial.
Reincarnation of the imperfect humans as well.
How many dogs, donkeys or honeybees belive incarnation.
How long a fish in the pond live and what is the fate of the fish after death?
Are animals god-fearing?
How come they live and die without any fear of death?

Karl Marx's religion at birth was Jewish. He was, however, atheist by choice.

Not all printed "sources" are credible. MUQ is fond of directing us to cut and paste jobs from outdated and now discredited books from history.(e.g Evolution matters!)

Regarding religion. NO man written nonsense is credible. Why? Because thats what it is "man written nonsense".

Talking about man written nonsense! I'm writting a book claiming the earth is realy flat, jesus is real so is allah? I'm hopeful a few yanks in the bible belt will buy it! Morons galore!! I'm hopeful, that ilk appears to sucks up to any nonsense.
