A friend of mine sent me this link via email and asked me what i thought.

GodBlock

It is a webfilter that blocks all religious content.

That could spell alot of trouble for alot of ATS pages. (joke)


When I tried to download it though, there was nothing to see. The software isn't ready yet.

That doesn't stop this guy from selling his stickers and t-shirts !




GodBlock is a web filter that blocks religious content. It is targeted at parents and schools who wish to protect their kids from the often violent, sexual, and psychologically harmful material in many holy texts, and from being indoctrinated into any religion before they are of the age to make such decisions.


www.godblock.com...

Moneymaking scheme or the real deal?

Smells fishy to me...

for atheists not believing in 'god' they sure do everything and anything in there power to hate him.

Something i have never understood. Why cant atheists and theists just get along?

You have the hardcore theists telling people how to live there lives.

Then you have the militant atheists like dawkins who attack religion,think its evil,make fun of theists,and are much more obsessed with religion and 'god' then the average theist is.In fact they seem to be as much obsessed with 'god' then hardcore theists.

Ha ha! Godblock!



You know what I think would be a really good program? Satanblock.


Or a special program, something like nonchristianpornblock.

That's a joke, of course, I'm referring to a thread from a while back where there was supposedly a "christian porn" website, where the "models' were either single, doing things to themselves, or couples who were married.


Seriously, though, I need a satanblock on my computer. He talks to me from websites.

SatanBlock, GodBlock? How about just ReligiousBlock or NonsenseBlock?



Most deeply religious people are born into their religion, but even children raised in a secular household are vulnerable to content on the web. That's why we've produced GodBlock. GodBlock is a web filter that blocks religious content. It is targeted at parents and schools who wish to protect their kids from the often violent, sexual, and psychologically harmful material in many holy texts, and from being indoctrinated into any religion before they are of the age to make such decisions.

Though this could just be some guy trying to make a quick buck, I would actually support something like this if done properly.

I suspect the author of this software is just trolling.

Most schools already have blocks in place against violence/sex/etc.

We always make some exceptions though.

We may allow our children to see some art, or read some books that deal with these topics, if we feel it's contextualised well, or not just purely exploitative.

I think Religion should get a similar exemption. Sure, the 'Good Book' is full of filth like this, but Religion is such an important part of society, that we should allow children to learn about it.

His work reminds me of the kind of things atheists often snigger at. The religious blocking Harry Potter books in libraries, or removing "naughty" words from dictionaries. It's just another kind of extreme knee-jerk reaction.

That isn't really about what this is about, well it is in a way, but it's about trying to stop them reading it when they are too young, because it is about the fact that people claim what's in the book is the truth. People will learn about it either way, it's just too wide spread to not hear about it. This is just a way of trying to stop them being exposed to it at very young ages, because that's exactly why most religious people were born into religious homes, they're given no choice essentially, I'd think it very hard for a child to refute the believes of his whole family based on the need for valid evidence, and not merely faith, a child can't make that sort of reasoned decision.

EDIT: Fixed stupid spelling mistake.

Yeah, that is funny, and useful too! right now we are deprogramming a 12 year old that thinks no matter what he does, such as disrespect parents, steal, lie and constantly be a nuisance, Jesus will save him and that's all he has to know. This kid has held a steak knife and said Jesus say you should die to his Mom. I am not calling the cops just yet, but I sincerely blame the people down the street that took him to church camp.
