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.

Absolutely.
Homer's Iliad probably contains more history than those books.
Whatever the bible is, it is full of fakes, lies of the rich and ruling ones, in the last 1500 years!

Nice.

If we were to use the same meme? But instead, go by sheer mass of biotic material?
The winner has to go to bacteria-- which comprise the vast majority of biomass on the planet, far out-stripping all the rest.
Perhaps that IS the "ultimate purpose" to life on Earth: in support of huge tracts of .... bacteria.

Religions are only misused in the interest of the mighty one nothing else!

Ok, I'll play...
Matthew 4:6
And said to him, "If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down. For it is written:
He will command his angels concerning you, and 'with their hands they will support you, lest you dash your foot against a stone'"
This is Satan quoting Psalms 91:11-12.
Now it's up to you to prove to me that you aren't Satan quoting scriptures for your ends.
It is silly to speak of Satan as a reality. Irrealities are of nonexistance.

Think about the very first "lesson" in the bible:
The prize? Knowledge.
The punishment? Learning.
Basically, the Genesis lesson is this: ignorance is desirable. Knowledge is strictly forbidden.
And the rest of the evil bible pretty much falls in line with that bit of stupid.
What a sad world it is when people can seriously say that humans need to fear eternal damnation in order to do good.

It is the one thing which at the same time stirs both anger and pity in most atheists; anger because it is a bigoted, prejudicial statement which serves no purpose except to promote intolerance, and pity because it highlights the theist's ignorance and willingness to accept such crap without question.

Religion and Secularism(normally Athiest) are all controlled means for the masses.
Whiles you argue amongst yourselves they are taking our freedoms little by little.

Lol! Oh Muq stop it! There were Jews and Christians all over the place at that time! The Torah and gospel myths were widely published and known throughout the region.
The Quran writer stole and rewrote what he liked. Rather clumsily might I note because of his several humorous mistakes throughout the Quran.
<quoted text>
You are right.There were jews too in Makkah.MUQ is finding every possible way to defend the inaccuracies of his religion.He couldn't even answer my simple straight questions.

And what is your proof that Prophet Mohammad learned from the "Israelite"?
There were no Israelite in Makkah when he declared his mission and more than two third of Quran was revealed in Makkah period.
Only in the last 10 years of his mission he migrated to Madina, where there were Isralites present, but their relations were not cordial and in the fifth year all Jews were removed from Madina.
So how come Prophet Mohammad learnt from them?
You haven't answered my questions.As per your demand,I am putting forth all of my questions one by one.
Explain me the contradiction in your religion that God is indepedent as well as needs reverence from us.
We have restored the discussion after some days.Yet,I think you sufficiently remember where we were.I have proved that your God has big ego.I have proved that your God needs our reverence and service(of course,you too did state that God made jinns and human for his service).

Islam used Aladdin an other Arabic fairy tales as part if it's foundation! Naturally they stole from Jews and Christians as well but Aladdin?! Are they for real?!

That's like making a religion and using Spider-Man to help form the foundation!

Indeed, it is more like a myth.Their belief of Mo's magical power of splitting of moon tells the truth.

Ah, but you would use that Ring with a desire to do good.
Others would use it to defend their people against all threats, real or imagined.
And yet others would use it to build an army to crush Rohan.
True. Scientific discoveries are always (at a minimum) double-edged like that.

Yeah, but "taking crap without question" has to be started at a very, very young age, though.

Which is why all modern religions have rituals to get the kids started on the brainwashing as quickly as possible...
