    As highly developed life forms is it not time to rid ourselves of the mind control tricks and wizards that have peddled this religeous fantasy. That the control and manipulation to say nothing of the murder, torture, suffering and death of millions all in the name of complete and utter fairy tales.

    What can anyone say in defense of such monstrous crimes against man. woman and child, the obstruction of knowledge, the insatiable greed for wealth, the perversion of justice and the untold suffering all in the name of manufactured stories.

    Religion, that greatest crime starts at birth with the continuous brainwashing and ends at the grave. No other form of knowledge, law or any other subject is used to manipulate humans in such a way, total mind and thought control.

    It is time to remove the chains of this nonsense and to remove those who ram it down our throats. For far to long man has allowed himself to be tricked by the devils who ply this odious trade.

    I don't practice what I don't believe in and no one needs to pray for me thank you very much. Once you realise the truth you will see you don't need the dogma.

    Freedom of religion is the foundation of freedom, thus the first thing mentioned in the First Amendment, the Bill of rights.

    When you dictate what some can or can not believe you strangle freedom, our founding fathers knew such.

    "The best thing is to let Christianity die a natural death.... When understanding of the universe has become widespread... Christian doctrine will be convicted of absurdity....
    "Christianity has reached the peak of absurdity.... And that's why someday its structure will collapse.... " Adolf Hitler

    you two have a lot in common

    I dismiss all supernaturalism. But I don't embrace forced compliance with my beliefs. While my ideal might be a world free of superstition, it must be achieved through education and human progress or it will never be achieved at all. Belief is involuntary.
