    i think organized religion should be abolished.

    at the same time i am very much FOR every kind of personal freedom such as:

    * freedom to take any drugs you want ( heroin, steroids whatever )
    * freedom to have sex with anything you want ( prostitutes, animals whatever )

    here is the problem:

    abolishing organized religion would qualify as taking people's rights away - something i am generally against of.

    on the other hand to let them have it is in effect to take even more rights away from people indirectly. because these morons if you don't exterminate them will take away your rights to abortion, stem cell research and whatever else they can think up like pornography, condoms whatever.

    one alternative would be to let them keep their religion but write a really long list of specifically every kind of right that they can't fuck with.

    but then that would just create a lot of suffering. you would have these zombies walking around really pissed off about everybody else being sinners. every once in a while one of them would kill one of us infidels for our sins. like stone some 15 year old girl to death for having an abortion.

    what do you think is the best approach ?

    Here's the reality of your utopia:
    "Captured on audio, three weeks before Congressman Ryan, NBC and others visit, they vote to commit Revolutionary Suicide to further the cause of Marxist-Leninism. The day before Congressman Ryan arrives, Jones announced to Jonestown (and recorded on tape) he's not passing up the opportunity to shoot him. Two days later, they do precisely as Jones had claimed: The Temple's "Red Brigade" killed Ryan and four others. The only murder of a Congressman in the line of duty in U.S. history. Popular NBC reporter Don Harris is also murdered. Then, just as the Temple had voted three weeks before, over 900 members commit Revolutionary Suicide -- the largest death toll of American civilians in a non-natural disaster until 9-11....

    "Jim Jones, leader of the mass suicidal "People's Temple" : "I decided how can I demonstrate my Marxism? The thought was, infiltrate the church."

    Anti-Communist

    "The portraits above are of the same man but in two different incarnations. On the left we see Martin "Gray" in retirement after a successful career peddling fake antiques to gullible collectors. He is holding his mass market paperback, For Those I Loved, which is filled with his exploits as a saintly "Holocaust Survivor" who was supposedly forced to help clear bodies out of the Treblinka "gas chamber." The earlier portrait on the right is of the youthful Gray as a decorated officer in the Soviet NKVD (the forerunner of the KGB), responsible for the murder of millions of Christians and gentiles in Russia and Eastern Europe. Even Establishment researchers have had to admit that Gray's book is as phony as the antiques he peddled. But Gray's scam is symbolic of countless other Communist ghouls who have managed to land on their feet in the West, disguised as poor, persecuted "Survivors of the Holocaust" and feted as the saints and martyrs of the universe. Meanwhile the holocaust they perpetrated against millions of Christians slips further down the dark environs of Orwell's memory hole."
    Judaic Communism: The Documentary Record

    "Tibet's esoteric, or tantric, school of Buddhism, of which the Dalai Lama is the leader, was adopted as Mongolia's de facto state religion in the 17th century. Three centuries later, communist purges killed more than 10,000 monks and destroyed most of the country's temples. By 1944, Gandantegcheling was the only official Buddhist institution left functioning."

    "With the same zeal that the Communists slaughtered the Bourgeoisie, Schoonmaker writes they "hunted down the clergy. Christian holidays were abolished... parents were forbidden from giving religious instruction to children...a League of the Godless was organized to mock out of existence every vestige of faith and reverence."

    Law courts were reorganized. Justice was now defined by Bolshevik orthodoxy. Anti Semitism became a state crime. Science, art and education were all put to the Marxist standard and often ruthlessly suppressed. The Classics and even fairy tales disappeared from libraries and schools.

    The institution of marriage was changed. You could obtain a divorce by merely sending your partner a card. They even considered the "nationalization of women" but demurred. In 1936, "emancipation" resulted in women making up: "26 percent of all workers in the metal and machine trades, 40% of woodworking and 24% of all Soviet coal miners..." (201)

    Today in America, we can witness the steady decline of culture, education, religion, marriage, free speech, free press and objective truth. We can see attempts to increasingly control every aspect of our lives as the two countries are "comfortably merged."
    Soviets Razed Churches

    "Hundreds of Chinese police clashed with thousands of "underground" Christians over the demolition of a church which was deemed to be an illegal structure.

    Up to 500 police forced back as many as 3,000 Christ-ians who had gathered at the weekend to mount a peaceful demonstration against the state's demolition of the church in the eastern province of Zhejiang.

    More than 20 Christians were injured in the clashes on Saturday, while five organisers of the protest were arrested, according to the Hong Kong-based Information Centre for Human Rights and Democracy.

    Its spokesman, Frank Liu, said that the unregistered church was being rebuilt by locals after it was destroyed last year by a typhoon....

    Mark Allison, a spokesman for Amnesty International in Hong Kong, said: "This latest incident proves that despite the odd overture towards more freedom of expression and the building of a harmonious society, China's leader's will use force to crack down on un-sanctioned religion.

    "Those arrested, like the thousands of Christians interned across the county, who largely go unreported, are forbidden to worship the religion of their choice.

    "They will receive summary justice by the police and be sentenced to re-education through forced labour or sentenced to prison."

    Welcome to anarchy. Your the reason I am a gun owner, and am acquiring more, plus lots of ammo.

    Folks like you scare the bejeezers out of me. You sound like Libertarians, and that would be ok, but you also seem to lack an ethical, moral compass, along with your ideas of what freedom is, and that means I, constitutionally need to be aware of you or those that espouse what you espouse.

    If your looking for a utopian society, your looking in the wrong places and or making the wrong choices or future choices.

    If you want to "bomb" your body with drugs, illicit or legal, have at it, but don't push that on my turf.
    That also goes for your free sex anytime anywhere plan. It's your body and soul......You crash it, it's your responsibility. All I can say is, "God have mercy on your soul.".

    wow... you think people should be free to do what they want, unless you dont like it.

    What a freaking surprise!

    killing yourself or others good - encouraging people to care about life is bad

    being jerk good - encouraging people to have charity is bad.

    Selling your body good - giving yourself in service bad.

    Seriously, you think that creates a utopia? That would be the ultimate hell on earth.

    Anarchy leads to authoritarian rule. Utopia does not and never will exist without certain moral standards. It is up to society as a whole to determine those moral standards, and this society will continue to do so.

    It's amazing how many people want to ignore one law of God (He says not to visit prostitutes, engage in homosexuality, etc.) but they seem to embrace God's commandment not to kill.


    Just where do you think every single law in the world against murder came from?

    That's right: the Ten Commandments.

    At least that's the case in the CHRISTIAN world (which is probably where you live).

    It's also the case in the Jewish and Muslim world. The Ten Commandments apply to all these cultures.


    Atheists have no morals other than those they stole from the Bible.


    No atheist has a right to expect someone to obey the Ten Commandments in regard to them.

    maybe because i don't want to be killed but i don't care who you fuck ?

    is it really that amazing ?

    by the way i had no intention of arguing with religious people. i was trying to ask other atheists how to best take your religion away from you ...

    :)
