UP, I wouldn't consider your post an attack even if you didn't say so. It is just a question.
Why am I against religon? it creates false hope for one thing. You believe your savoir will come and rescue you in times of need. At the end,
when the apocolyps(sp?) comes one thinks his savoir will come and save him. But, if that doesn't happen, your screwed blued and tatooed, Screwed
without being kissed, up Shiznick creek without a paddle, however you want to say it. In end, you lose and your hope did nothing.
Second, I am against sensless killings. Most sensless killings are the witch trials, Iqusition, the Crusades, and the slaughter of the
"barbarians" in the name of the Christian god. Then the people lost on 9/11 and in isreal for the Arab god Allah. Of course you have the Jews
killing people for not being Jews, and Hindu did the same thing. All senseless, all because of a "my god right your's wrong" attitude. Think
about it, religon, mostly Catholic, killed science, then kept it in the grave when it was being ressurected by Copernicus and the like.
This lead to people dying at a young age. Greeks middle age was 25-30, when Catholic in power of Europe, middle age was 15-20. Then, you get
ignorant people killing honest people for the fact they came with some new technology the Catholic church said was satans work. Or, they were killed
for disagreeing with the Catholic Church. Sure, other religons did this to, for fear of what the new idea/technology would bring, but catholic church
burnt entire cities for a couple people in it disagreed with them. Or, in italy, a city was destroyed because of a house that held "pagan" works of
Then, medically. Some strict Islam won't even think about taking medicine for Allah doesn't say it is ok. So they die when the medicine could
Or, old days of Catholic in power, the Black Plague. It killed 30-35 million people. But, China had it first, and longer. But China lost about
half a million. What is the difference? China had herbal medicine and the like which were witchcraft in Europe, they had cats that ate the rats that
spread the plague unlike Europe for cats evil and killed off, and last, China knew something about spread of disease due to studying and, while not
quite doctors, but somone who knew about taking care of sick saw how it spread. Of course, to suggest the plague was spread through the air was said
to be disagreeing with church, for they thought god was punishing the sinners. So, because of one religon, millions died. Millions died because one
religon was in power and said the way to stop the plague was evil for their god was doing it.
Then, the Jews. Hitler killed them because of his religous beliefs and of their religous beliefs. Maybe if Hitler was a Jew, he wouldn't have
gone after the Jews. But if he was nothing and the Jews nothing, then no reason to kill them.
Religon causes death and destruction, all meaningless. Sure, other things cause wars to, but Arabs didn't attack the U.S.A. because they were
white, but because they weren't Islamic and deserved to die in the name of Allah. If you see differently(TC,UP, truth) say so. I'd like to read
