With or without religion, good people can behave well and bad people can do evil; but for good people to do evil - that takes religion.

The Bible is not a moral guide, it is a collection of misogynistic folklore which is designed to control the behavior of the citizens of post Roman governments. It is a slave religion, made for slaves by their masters.

The biggest advantage to believing in god is you don't have to understand anything, no physics, no biology. Everything is in gods hands. Kill me if I ever fall for that paradigm, please!

"Who made me?" cannot be answered, since it immediately suggests the further question "Who made god?"

Christian Fundamentalists, Endtimers and religious zealots are the planets most dangerous human beings.

Religion is like a prison with invisible bars stifling curiosity about the world around us. It provides fairy tales for the weak among us.

Unfortunately the Nazis seem to have taken on a new disguise. They never disappeared, just morphed into something called American Politics.

As a species we are hierarchical in our social organization and religion is the very essence of hierarchy. The blueprint for modern western religions was devised by the Romans - one of history's more anal societies in the organisation and hierarchy departments - exceeded only by the Nazis.

It might actually go back to the first human being, or the second at least. Control seems to be the ultimate goal of humanity in general. Something like, 'he who has the most wins?'
