    Man is something to be overcome...



    The study seems to suggest that religiosity, like violence, lust, and the mating instinct, is yet another artifact of our past development. Fighting over religion then is, in a sense, shown to be even more analogous to fighting over skin colour than previously though

    Absent of God man will put himself at the center of the universe, and we all know how that works out.

    Yes, we decide that the bible is wrong and outlaw slavery, stop making girls marry their rapists, reject 'god's' [read: 'the priests''] orders that genocide be committed to conquer the 'promised land', stop killing people for being heretics and worshiping other gods, work to end sectarian violence, and actually progress as a species.

    Religion rests upon the twin foundations of faith and dogma; [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Science-Liberty-Democracy-Reason-Nature/dp/0060781505"]both are antithetical to liberty and to progress[/ame].

    Genocide for one thing.

    Making girls serve their rapists sexually for the rest of their lives for another.

    Killing unbelievers for another.

    Killing homosexuals.

    Or maybe you meant demonstrable wrong and not just evil?

    Either Genesis 1 is wrong or Genesis 2 is. They can't both be correct.

    Or God = Satan, since it claims each ordered the first census, despite elsewhere pretending they're different entities.

    Is this it? You believe this validates that the Bible is wrong?

    We are in a spiritual battle daily, try finding out what this means first....

    That which is not internally consistent is demonstrated to be false. The two accounts of creation, like the two accounts of the census, are not compatible. Hence, at least one account must be false. Ergo, the particular collection containing them (there are different versions of the Christian bible, containing different texts) cannot be an infallible source and carries no more weight than any other historical document. Therefore, any claims made within the contained texts must be independently verifiable.
