one of the things there is out there right now is 2 books on the NY times best seller the god delusion by richard dawkins another one is letter to a
christian nation by sam harris. Now, as for Mr dawkins, basically what he does is he takes the best of science and says "look how great we are" and
he takes the worst of religion and he says look how horrible they are "Boo , down with religion" according to dawkins ! You know, not really fair to
respected religions.Science has a lot of good in it and it also has a lot of bad.We tend to forget there's a lot of bad science in the world, for
instance, there was a move in united states in the early 20th century in the 1920's, to basically sterilize poor people, because they were seen
scientifically as unworthy of breeding(Google or look into public library "Buck v. bell sterilization case 1927") that was a scientific theory.
That scientific theory manifests in the nazi movement, because the nazis believed in the "Science of Eugenics" that they were actually a superior
race! And they believed that the jews were an inferior race ! Thats science, thats not RELIGION.So dawkins doesn't talk about that science, science
is only whats good and wondeful according to him.So science has its downside as well, now religion has its downside also, but its kind of unfair fight
like when you take the best of science, the worst of religion and write a book about that ! And just say hey, science is the answer and religion is
evil.Sam harris, another person he say's "Gee, isn't religion horrible, it caused all these WARS". I say Well gee, what was the 20th century?
World war 1 ? was that about religion? wasn't that NATIONALISM? World war 2 was that about religion? Wasn't that Fascism? All the cold wars,
weren't those about COMMUNISM? Communism is anti-religion! So the 20th century, the bloodiest century in human history is all wars that weren't
fought about religion , they were fought about idealogies.So i think the problem is a human problem , it's not a problem of religion ! Humans are the
problem.So religion is okay, we need to get rid of all humans....You see animals are being true to their nature ! The question is , are we being true
to our nature? thats the question and religion says NO and you know why? because god expects a lot more from you than you expect from yourself.
Its not our religions that have failed us sam harris, mr dawkins....IT'S WE THAT HAVE FAILED OUR RELIGIONS!
