Found your insight and beliefs to be on par with my own. I think many Christians believe the same thing. I find that as much as many people on this
site claim to deny ignorance, they in fact spew the worst amounts of it when it comes to religion - something they truly have no understanding about.
I used to think these people had personal quarrels with God but just found out that they don't really think for themselves and would rather put all
their faith into something they can taste touch and see regardless if it's real or not (The irony!). Most of it is a big fad now and if you're not
an atheist Dawkins thumper you're just not cool.
I have my own questions about evolution, love, spirituality that science refuses to answer. Instead they choose to skirt the question and talk about
how much they know about this rock, and by extension the truth of all things.
They also like to claim that religion is the cause of all wars and suffering in the world. Such "enlightened" minds choose to believe these things
because it relieves them of any responsibility for their actions. War is not an extension of religion, but rather an excuse for it. Mankind is
predisposed to war between each other. If it wasn't about religion, we would find another excuse to wage war and steal land, jewels and power.
It gets even funnier, because this stuff is simple logic. You just have to observe the human condition to understand it. Someone as smart as Richard
Dawkins is most definitely understands this. He knows religion isn't "really" the reason why there are wars. But it satiates his followers by
identifying a common enemy and if he has to lie or "bend the truth" a bit for a "righteous" cause he will. I'm sure he is definitely not
motivated by greed at all!
Just as many people fall for the lies and control methods of current organized religion, so do those very same people fall for it under atheism while
claiming superiority. You just need to read over this thread to see the arrogance.
But enjoy the site. It has some good info but most of the time you have to sift through the BS. You'll also come across those depressed haters of all
who say nothing positive. Their lives are lost so best to let them suffer alone! Misery loves company!
