Reasons to eliminate religion.
Sorry, but I have to vent for a minute, OK; for hundreds of years indigenous people and their culture have seen extreme brutality from Muslim and Allah, Jews/Christians and God/Jesus. In fact, for those of us who have read-up on history knows that the justifications for enslaving and brutalizing these people was that "they were not Christians or "saved" and we, the good God/Jesus loving colonialists, must convert these pagans to… Continue

Text interesting about Morality and Religion, for sure will bring great clarity to many here in this community.
Moral, ethical and RELIGION
Professor: Dr. Marcos de Almeida
There may be a morality without religion? You must have a
god or gods, so that it becomes indispensable to morality? The fact
that some people are not religious, the ability to be, automatically, moral?
And if the answer to these questions require the belief in one god, what… Continue

first, I don't get it when people who, in most cases, know what they crazy, insane religion is about, yet complain when these moronic religious laws touches their lives.
Take the case of this Catholic school teacher for example, loosing her livelihood for marrying a divorced man.
"She told the San Antonio Express-News that the firing took some of the joy out of the preparations for the marriage."
"I couldn't get out of bed. It's just been this cloud.… Continue

I have my own question: Does God and his angel choose who they want to heal?
My question arose when it was reported that "A 14-year-old girl with a history of serious health issues lay dying of pneumonia in a hospital room. But as her mother waited for the girl to take her last breath, an image of bright light appeared on a security monitor. Within an hour, the dying girl began a recovery that doctors are at a loss to explain."…

The Bush administration, in its final days, "has issued a federal rule reinforcing protections for doctors and other health care workers who refuse to participate in abortions and other procedures because of religious or moral objections."
According to critics "the protections are so broad that they limit a patient's right to get care and accurate information. For example, they fear the rule could make it possible for a… Continue

According to msnbc on-line news "After being convicted and sentenced to probation in 2007 for paying people to vote in a Benton Harbor recall election, Edward Pinkney wrote an article in a small Chicago newspaper saying the judge who handled the case could be punished by God with curses, fever and "extreme… Continue

I guess the "Virgin" Mary have nothing better to do so she shows up in a women's brain Scan. That says a lot about this "heaven."
"Pamela Latrimore has been sick for years with cancer, arthritis and a series of serious ailments she blames on a childhood in Jacksonville, Ark., a place that has been investigated by the U.S. government for possible dioxin exposure. Dioxin is a toxic chemical linked to a variety illnesses including… Continue

The "magic" for children at Christmas, is to lie to them.
"The female supply teacher told pupils at Blackshaw Lane Primary in Royton, Oldham, that it was parents, not Santa, who left their gifts on Christmas Day."
In fact the head teacher Angela McCormick "has since told the agency she does not want the teacher to work there again."
According to School governor, Councillor Steve Bashforth: "It would take more than one Grinch to spoil the magic of… Continue

More reason to eliminate Religion
"I will do it again"
was the comment of Lord Our Righteousness Church's leader Wayne Bent.
The self-proclaim Messiah Wayne Bent is accused of and being tried for sex crimes against two of his teenage followers.
However, he "insists that he did nothing wrong by lying naked with the teenage girls, and that it's common for him to kiss and embrace any member of his group."
All the members of this Christian cult need to… Continue

Why are the most abusive, sadistic and evil people are the ones "God" seems to chose to lead his "flock"? Have any of you believers, stop, just for a second, and pay attention to God's judgement? Oh! I know, you guys are to busy believing and praying, with your eyes close, to this so-called God. As a result, you guys fail to recognised all the atrocious crimes his "spiritual" picked leaders are committing. Yes, they all claimed to be chosen… Continue

The Islamic world is about to embark upon one of its most holy pillars, the Hajj. Millions of believers will spend their last cent, traveling from the four corners of the world in an effort to appease "Allah" and fulfill, for most, a once in a lifetime, goal of Hajj.
However, what fascinates me is not the amount of people attending the event, but what goes on. For example, the stoning of a rock believed to be the devil, that seems to be, at least to me, extreme insanity. On the other hand,… Continue

Chills will flow through the body after reading this story. In addition, this story and many, many others, with the same outcome -- death, should make believers re-evaluate the blind faith they placed into a "belief system" that perpetrates so much death, horror and pain.
The Tyler Paper.com reported that Blaine Keith Milam, 19 and Jesseca Bain Carson, 18, both of Henderson, "claim they were trying to drive the demons out of… Continue

Christians always make the claim that the Bible is the word of their God, and according to the Bible itself Revelation 22:18-9, "For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and [from] the things… Continue

This is an old story, but I could not resist it. About one year ago, in Grenada a proposal was made to build a casino. This proposal were seen by some as a move that can improve the tourism industry, and as a result, increase revenue since the tourism industry is the industry Grenada economy really depends on. However, as expected, there were strong decent from the public but the strongest came from the religious community. Grenada pride itself to be a deeply religious country. As a matter of… Continue

This is a good one. I came across this story on World Net Daily. According to the report a 22-year-old young man committed suicide and his family and friends are blaming a college biology course, and the Richard Dawkins book 'The God Delusion'.
"Three people told us he had taken a biology class and was doing well in it, but other students and the professor were really challenging my son, his faith. They didn't like him as a Republican, as a Christian, and as a conservative who… Continue

More reason to get rid of religion.
I have always stated that There are, in my view, no evidence that can solidly give the slights probability of the existence of a God. So the topic of this blog is in no way an endorsement of God.
I titled this blog God's judgment because all christian leaders, from what ever christian cult they are from, always often make the claim that they were chosen by God. However, it seems to me that God always chose individuals who mostly turning… Continue

SEATTLE, Washington—Fresh from the keyboard of science-thriller writer Lori Stephens, Alpha, Omega is—like Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code—fiction with a forceful message. The story starts with a corpse. A defector from a cult called Omega has bled to death, and the only clue is the book he’s clutching: the Librah Vae-ta, the holy scripture that the Omega founders engineered over a century ago. Dr. Gatsby Donovan resolves to help solve the bizarre murder. As she spirals deeper into the danger… Continue
