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.

Yes
Many of the problems we face now are from the Bush administration and the Neo Cons in power. Neo Cons wanted the invasion of Iraq

I cannot criticize your analysis here--

-- a modern example is Dick Cheney's illegal Iraq invasion-- his NO-BID contracts to Halliburton has made Cheney a multi-millionare...

...!!!

Yes-- it is clear that Cheney was the architect behind that needless invasion, in order to make himself even richer.

There are other ReThugs who also cashed-in on that fiasco.

Who-- VOTED AGAINST VET BENEFITS TOO!(I'm looking at YOU Boner)

Sick f**ks.

You Forget Profit Comes from war in capitalism. Education? Yes for the elite. I lived in a Country (Up to 1990) where education had a high esteem!
But educating the masses will improve everything eventually.

Educated people are less sheep-like, and less willing to cow-tow to oppression.

Hello Al-Quiada ...

though I made my point I will elaborate. Actually, while I will admit that the US does act like a bully in many instances, most of our ware were either internal or started by someone else, most, not all. You're ISP says you're in Germany, so really, you are just calling the kettle black here.

Yet they hanged an atheist for just being an atheist.

And you wonder why the world looks upon you as beasts?

Those talking against death penalty are who do not know human nature and how crime rate goes higher when there is no deterrent punishment and when justice is denied or delayed due to the western court system, where every "protection" is given to the criminals and "Lawyers" are available to use every trick in the book to get their clients off hook.

The "sympathy" of law is with criminals and not with the victims, who have no protection or recompense for the wrongs they suffered.

Well, he did a lot of stupid things, yes, but he didn't do all bad. The DADT thing became an issue when he was in office because he actually put a motion to repeal it, one of the good things he tried to do, but got shot down by the military generals and other Repugs. The bailouts were stupid, but he was trying to do something right at least, and the US public kept complaining that he wasn't doing enough when he was doing the right thing, you can't blame the president for what the public wanted technically, but he demonstrated a weakness in doing so which cannot be ignored.

But you are right, analyzing his presidency would take a ton of bandwidth.

Yeah... there's that.

The Iraq War Dead alone is ... atrocious.

If Bushy had had an actual SENSE OF JUSTICE? He'd have killed himself in remorse, just for all the ruined lives he, personally, caused.

May be a double post. Topix burp.

Ans.
01. Please tell the "Qualities" of the Creator of the Universe, which your observations "reveal".
Then we will see how the concept of God which we worship tallies and surpasses all that which your observations tell you.
02. So you thing eating Pork is all that religion is about?
03. Do you know what is Ism? To call Islam as ism, shows only your ignorance.
04. I am living for many years in Saudi Arabia, and I have not seen any one being jailed for not going to prayers.
The people who do not close down their shops in market at prayer times, might face some penalty for violation of local laws.
You should know that in Islam there is no separation between Secular and religious duties. Ruler of state is also responsible to see that Islamic system is enforce on ground.
And if you think, every one is so reasonable to follow laws and rules, why you have Traffic Police and Normal Police in your countries?
Why do you not leave it to "good sense" of citizens to follow these "Most reasonable laws"
The truth is you protect which you consider is of value. There is no value of religion in your countries, so you do not care a damn about it.
In Islam it is different.
01. I will not even try to describe god in human terms considering what we've discovered of the universe. The best I can do is only offer guesses and I certainly would not try to enforce my guesses as dogma. You may as well ask me if the mathematical concept of infinity is sympathetic or can be angered.

02. No. Eating pork is not everything religion is about. However, certain religions has included the prohibition of eating pork. It seems trivial, don't you think?

03. "ism" does apply to Islam. And a whole host of other religions and other aspects of life. Look it up in the dictionary.

04.1 Because you haven't seen it, doesn't mean it doesn't happen. How about a game then? If you are so sure, tell the god squad you aren't going to answer the call to prayer. And no, you may not dress as a European/American/infidel.

04.2 "The people who do not close down their shops in market at prayer times, might face some penalty for violation of local laws."

Considering everyone is forced into the mosque, why should a business stay open when there aren't any customers? And what is the fine for a 2nd, 3rd, or 4th offense?

04.3 "You should know that in Islam there is no separation between Secular and religious duties. Ruler of state is also responsible to see that Islamic system is enforce on ground."

So the ruler has final say so in matters both political and religious. Basically, you are saying your leaders of religion are as trustworthy as a politicians.

04.4 Saudi Arabia also has traffic and normal police.

And there's a difference between laws passed by us mere mortals by representative processes than with dictatorial edicts by a dictator present and from the past (via holy books). Given enough time, whitewashing history and propaganda, even Stalin could be heralded as the "Last Prophet" in a few hundred years. Granted it would be a lot more difficult know as the internet allows quick and easy research for dubious claims.

04.5 " There is no value of religion in your countries, so you do not care a damn about it."

Because religion is not withstanding the test of time. Whenever we discover something that contradicts the dogma, it's either suppressed or another lie needs to be constructed to support the previous lies. Given time, the religious dogmas start sounding as ridiculous as Santa Claus.

04.6 "In Islam it is different."

This sounds suspiciously like what a battered wife would say.

But. I'm not the one in charge of Obama's life-- HE is-- it was HIS decision. One I do not agree with, but then again, I was not there, and I did not have all the facts that HE had.
On the other hand? If ANYONE deserved killing? Osama was one of those who did. But he was a VICTIM of your evil Islam-- as much a victim as any girl who gets ACID in the face is..
... your horrid religion is one of VIOLENCE.
You ought to UNDERSTAND President Obama's decision VERY WELL--
--- IT IS ONE YOU WOULD HAVE DONE, IF OSAMA WAS NOT ONE OF YOUR TRIBE!
You Islamic TERRORISTS have been MURDERING EACH OTHER FOR CENTURIES.
Sheesh, but you are a hypocrite.
Why are you stuttering?(Just like GWB the Great before 9/11!!)

Why should we feel shame? We are not against death penalty or killing.!!

That is the problem. Here in this country, all religions are supposed to be equally separated from the state.
Key word there is "supposed."

And a key concept there is that the religions should not be trying to dictate policies of the state.

There are intersections of state and religion with the easy example of "you may not murder."*

*this, of course, assumes there's a translation error of the "Thou shalt not kill" Commandment where kill == murder. Otherwise, the infallible Bible folks are going to have a hard time defending a self defense plea or admit there is an error in the Bible. But they are well trained in compartmentalization and may claim that's not a problem at all because they are completely unrelated.

Oh look its another post from the coward MUQ with no proof of god in it.

Will MUQ shut the f*ck up and stop lying about his hallucinations to intelligent athiests?

No, because he is a brainwashed religious troll who suffers from the mental illness of faith.
