    I would first like to say I did not type this. I wish I could claim it as my own, but I cannot. However, I felt it is worth posting and I did cite the writer and the site it was originally writ. Happy reading.

    1. Where is your/ his evidence that there is not a supernatural God?
    2. How has the legitimate practice of Christianity caused wars?

    LOL wow. Society grants religion 'immunity' to criticism. How is it then this person is able to write an article criticizing it?


    A religion is simply a set of beliefs, it doesn't matter if one worships God, Jesus, Allah, himself or nothing at all. Most of these people that claim they aren't "religious", such as the clown that wrote that above piece, are in fact subscribers to their own belief system. And their agenda is to stamp out all oposing schools of thought so they can impose their own on everyone else.

    Darwinism is a belief system too, as is secularism.

    This proves my point:
    Here the writer is flat out admiting that his belief system, Darwinism, also requires a "leap of faith" in that it does not require any physical or scientific evidence to prove the theory as fact. Sounds alot like religions he attacks with his "teapot" analogy doesn't it?

    Kettle meet teapot.

    The writer has the fundamental assumptions wrong. He is assuming one can never know for oneself. That there is no evidence.

    Quite contrary there is lots of evidence. But its easy to dismiss the issue claiming there is no evidence by completely ignoring it.

    His teapot analogy is assine as it is. No one in support of religion will be like "Well i dont have any proof, just believe it" Quite to the contrary there are books upon books written by people offering evidence of their faith.

    He might not like the evidence or find it unconvincing, but its evidence and to pretend as if there is not is intellectually dishonest.

    Kagon,
    I hope you find peace in the future because that post written is from a complete nutjob. You really need to look around and look at our world from atop a mountain. Man is the only f-cked up element of life. And about wars and all of that. For the record they have been happening since the beginning of time. And reading a history book can be equally as vile and violent as the Bible. So I say this source it totally lost in a time warp. Another hint is this: Religion is man made so get away from religion and you'll find peace. I'm not judging you but I'm saying beware of wolves in sheeps clothing.

    I am away from religion. I have personal beliefs and that's good enough for me. I only posted this out of interest.

    I hope not more cut-N-paste from a nonsensical rant.
