IMHO, most do not qather in Jesus' name. They gather in the name of Christianity, Christ, Popes, Paul, Luther, etc. AND themselves.

A far cry from what Jesus meant.

Most of the people I know don't think much about religion other than as a reason to be prejudiced, judgemental and hate-filled.
Well, that's why it was invented, well, that, and ignorantly explaining the unexplainable, consolidating power, and growing the coffers. It is remarkably efficient at all of that.

You can't disprove Muhammad was God's most holy prophet. Better look on a map to see which way Mecca is and start with the bowing!
When there are Muslim astronauts, they had a difficult time positioning the arrow in the spaceship to point to Mecca. Wonderfully a fatwa was composed to prevent blasphemy. It's magic!

Trespassing is such a strong word. It's more like littering. Care for a Chick Tract?

I canít agree that the above view is a fair one personally. Looks to me like you are looking for all the bad in religion, and all the good in science. Everything that religion has done in this world is not bad, and everything science has done is not good.
By the way, while I may be incorrect here (I am sure I will be corrected if I am wrong) I think that the translation of witch is under dispute. I have read where it is thought to represent a person that poisons the local well. If a person was going around adding poison to wellís to kill off the locals, I could understand the command to not let someone kill off entire communities.
You may be right, but what is more important is how that Scripture was used to murder innocents and enemies, especially women. That it can be so broadly interpreted and misused points to its flaws and could potentially be described as nothing more than drivel.

With all due respect, could you please point to what religion has done in this world that is good. I am not asking about individual or group acts of kindness in the name of one church or another, but what have religions contributed to Society past the early necessity of tribalism for survival?

And I agree, science has certainly made killing most efficient, but the good outweighs the bad in immeasurable terms.

Nymph!

Where is Fish and that Fundie dance list when you need him?

Not my forte but the "God Gene" study is one.
Is it trying to disprove an existence of a god or gods or trying to explain why belief is so pervasive?

That's the thing about myths, they change over and over throughout time without the general populace of the newest version ever bothering to know the original from which it was taken.
Thanks for the info, Liam. You are always a great source!
How's my boy?
Their god has to change. The gaps ever shrink. Soon it will be Norquisted.

<quoted text> Good idea.
After a couple of years of being told that we were going to hell (in a handbasket), I decided to invent a handbasket for us all to take the trip. But the trip turned out not to be to hell, and turned into joyous occasions when all the non-Christians (and one or two people like NS) go on excursions to places we'd like to see. We always carry a picnic lunch and have copious amounts of chocolate on hand.
Over the years I have upgraded the basket so that we can fly or sail to any place on earth. I have also added a fridge, a small spa and several other conveniences to keep us all happy, comfy and in good health and spirits.
The fundies have followed screaming 'Why aren't you in hell yet?!!!' but we just speed up and laugh our way along the paths we follow, ignoring any negative things that they may scream at us.
They sit very disgruntled (and without picnic supplies) as we sit with our checkered cloth on the ground or a picnic table in a park, and wait to see where we're going next. I think they secretly enjoy the laughter and beauty we share with each other, but they never join in.
If you are one of those who either doesn't believe, believes but keeps it to yourself and don't preach, tell me you'd like to go on the trip in May. Our trip this time is to Stone Henge and Avebury. There is a dance at midnight in the center of the Henge. You can dance naked if you like as there will be no one to judge you. I personally will not be dancing naked in front of people, as at 66 I feel it is a detriment to the eyes of others for me to do so.
I am not going unless I get 72 porn stars. Virgins are so 1950s.

I recommend Haldol. It is very useful in the treatement of those who can not distinguish reality from fantasy.
LOL. And I highly recommend a few glasses of nice Cabernet for those who can distinguish between the two, and prefer not to.

That's easy.
Ever see them little boxes on the wall in the entrance of the church?
Them's fer the parts of brain removal on the way in...the fountains is fer clean'n up the mess afterwards...not only that, but ya gotta set on some hardass bench what they calls "pew", what makes some sense, coz there's the poopit head'n up the whole affair. They got' high backs so the folks what deposited the brains can still navigate down ta ther "pew". I guess ya gotta pat fer wherever ya sets, coz they passes this gold plate around fer ya ta put yer payment in.
Oh...Ther's also some kinda oaf what ya gotta take afore the actual "doctor'n" takes place(after the pastard sizes up the conjurgation)what ya gotta stand up fer. Almost fergot that part. After all the hubbub is settled ya gott'a smile at everone and tell the pastard he done a good job afore they let ya out!
What happens to the soul if a Christer grabs the wrong brain on the way out?
