i thought were a tolerable lot


But may be not so as revealed in this article. But in defense of my brothers, this problem seem to me to be one caused by those who belong to the peaceful religion.

    The religious are a curious, pitiful bunch, hiding behind their gods and their archangels and their whiney privilege as god worshipers, all the while destroying anyone who isn’t as kind and all embracing and loving as they are.
    I may not live long enough to see it, but I suspect one of these days they will find themselves outnumbered, and treated as badly as they treat other people. Do Unto Others, y’all.

      as long as we have gross inequalities, religion will have its followers.
      and combine that with some nationalism or another, then you have a serious catalyst for conflict

  3. Well, ya gotta realize, the only way to enter into the all-loving embrace of the al-accepting Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ is to kill and torment those who do not believe in him. Hope this clears things up for you. May the loving arms of Jesus Christ embrace and comfort you during this joyful holiday season, and may you fill your heart with rage and hate for all those who do not believe in said Savior. $Amen$

    There’s no peace when you’re surrounded by people who demand complete submission to their imaginary overlords.

      I agree with makagutu. It’s when people have an absolute truth in something, be it religion, social practices, even economic practices such as capitalism or socialism. I’m of the conviction that there are no absolute truths.

        You are right. There are no absolute truths. But try telling that to a musulman convinced he has the truth from Allah or a Buddhist who is convinced he has the truth or a Christian who has heard voices

          I hear voices from time to time, usually indistinct. but sometimes I can make out words and occasionally sentences.

          However I fully understand that these are auditory hallucinations brought on by a migraine, and is a reliable warning that one is about to strike.

          While the most common auditory hallucinations I experience are someone calling my name or a telephone ringing, I do hear sounds that seem related to ideas I’m concerned about. Essentially, they are what I might say/tink myself.

          I suspect those who hear voices of (for want of a better term) a less sociable nature, I dare say it’s a reflection of the thoughts/nature persons themselves.

            In a sense yes.
            Sometimes I think the person who said a people’s god reflects the nature of those people had a point.
            Look at Scientologists with their gods. Or the Arabs with their Allah or… everywhere you look, god is almost as the people who worship him/ her

    How very tragic that in all the years humans have been on this earth, they have yet to learn to “live and let live”. Sigh.
