You rationalize your addiction to religion. Sorry about that.
Actually, you assume that. I was offering an opinion to counter your accusation
that Religion was a drug and that people are addicts. The perception of "addicts" are ones that are inherently negative when looked at from many
aspects. Your hypocracy is phenomenal, as in a later post you make the accustaion that I was attempting to say this
The point of the post was
to show that atheists are evil, sick, demented people. It's a way of making them less than "normal" people.
Nowhere in my post did I
mention any of that. You infer it all.
Its ok for you to paint religious people as "drugged", meaning that they are less "normal" or deviant in nature.
The only negative side I have is to people trying to hijack our science classes for their religious agenda.
Please show me where
religion has hijacked anything in secular state funded schools. Please, Your alarmist rhetoric screams of the Evangelical Atheism we see Hichin and
Dawkins scream from the Pulpit , There comming for the children, save the children. Come on Gawdzilla, is this the Atheists fire and brimstone
You have no idea how I am in the real world.
Is this not the real world? Are you saying that you are not real here?
Yet, you know it all about "drugged religious people". Don't you. It is ok for you to paint all and sundry under one broad banner, but when I do it
Regarding the article. Given that it was a study of people suffering depresion, is it still not significant to note the role that religion plays as
opposed to the effects noted in those where it is absent. As someone who loves to retort with all things science I thought you would have easily
noted, as a factor, religion is significant when looked at in sections of our population. For your information, Depression has is extremely
significant within society.
The fact is that YOU link Drugs and religion makes this study even more relevant, THIS IS WHY I MENTION THE STUDY.
Depression and religion, a natural drug that may be a factor in the depression, and the possible outcomes likely in individuals. The study shows
this as a significant factor. SCIENCE.
It also shows that the abscence is just as significant. Those in this catogory are more likely to be substance abusers or suicides.
I thought you would see the connection, which is why I make the natural drug reference in a previous post. But obviously you would rather infer that I
was making snide attacks on your snide attacks, so to speak.
The fact I made personal references to you, is because, quite frankly, you love dishing it out yourself. I am aware that this may have been far too
personal for you, this was unintended, but religion is a very personal topic, so any accusations where one may accuse another religious poster of
being an addict, or perhaps another may suggest a member is more likely to be a substance abuser or aggressive because thay are atheist is a
reasonable exchange, after all Gawdzilla, its not the real world is it. LOL.
It is obvious that I can take it. But.....
It's a way of avoid the fact that atheists are just people who have outgrown religion
Yes, that is why you are here. Because you have
moved on. Right.
Religion and Atheism, one and the same. Answer all the questions that people use religion for, and then I woud hazard a guess that the majority of
people will listen. Until then, your just another culturally accepted cult. Welcome to rehab.
