I have heard over and over again in the last two weeks how religious debators are nothing more than zealots. I even without mentioning names seen
atleast one mod jump on the band wagon. I also only hear that we the religious debators are no better than terrorists and that their would be no war
if not for faiths. I cant see how we the faithful despite our religion can be the cause of the worlds troubles alone. I have heard that if religions
and faiths didnt exist here there would be less argueing on ATS.
So to minimize these fights people suggest it is better to disolve the threads on religon. I have also heard that we are no better than UFO buffs and
Science zealots who think off the wall comet or astroids are going to strike the earth tomm. I dont see however where a call for those threads are
being called for to be disolved.
People are going to argue and fight religion or not. If religion wasnt here it would be the same case with politics, or military and goverment secret
orgs. or something else. The call for disolving religion and faith to end war is not the answer people are diverse and often dont even in the heat of
there hatred think of their responsibilities to abide by there faith.
Man is at the top of the food chain for one reason and one reason alone , they are smart enough to know violence equals survival. Violence is however
in my view the way to handle anything. However it's the bases of natures selection for survival, and even drives us to preserve our and others
So to get back to the point at hand all those hear that say people of faith are just wasting space and causing descent, and never can prove their
point of view with evidence I say in my opinion your proof can be thought of the same way.
However I wouldnt say to a big bang theorist you where not there when the Universe was created so how could you or anyone have proof the bang started
it all, and since you cant prove it you are wasting space and causing strife. That would be censorship , and no more than I want it to happen to my
interests , would I ask the same.
Respect and tolerance is the way to end war not eliminate beliefs, because eventually you will have to eliminate everything because everything has a
fundamental belief behind it, I mean really even the telephone was created behind the belief that a sound could be transmitted with the right
combination of components , so therefore that belief was pursued and now what do we have a network of communication global in design and every one
given the will can obtain the most common house hold appliance the phone.
So to remove religious subject matter would not improve ATS it will only be an extension of an ignorancem censoring is the ignorance of a mind that
refuses to believe.
