Hey, guess what! There is a good chance that I hate everything you stand for.

When someone looks me square in the face and tells me that they truly believe that the entire human race is inherently evil because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat the wrong apple and if I don’t devote my entire life to a Jewish zombie then I’ll spend eternity burning in fire… that tells me something very important about that person.

This is the same person who, after being cured of a serious illness, will thank god and not recognize the doctors or the science that brings us modern medicine. This is the same person who, when receiving a promotion or a raise at their job, will thank god and not recognize their own hard work and achievements. This is the same person who claims that god gave him this land therefore he is completely justified in committing acts of unspeakable violence against his neighbors. This is the same 40-year-old Yemeni man who watches his pregnant 12-year-old wife bleed to death over the course of 3 days while attempting to give birth because she can’t receive the necessary medical attention because she can’t be seen naked by another man, lest she be put to death according to religious dogma.

Fucking ridiculous.

  1. Thumbs up for you :-)

  2. What I find hilarious is how these problems of “faith” versus “science” were settled hundreds of years ago.

    I mean – I’m an atheist, but I have to say that St. Augustine was smart enough to say “Hey, if we get evidence that what’s in the Bible isn’t 100% accurate – then we take it as allegory so we don’t look like a bunch of fracking tards to the ‘pagans’.”

    So it’s amazing to me that within the last 200 years, Christian groups decided that “No – science and progress aren’t cool any more. Let’s go to a literal translation of the Bible (of course ignoring the flat earth parts and other stuff just because then they’d look even dumber).”

    I mean – how can you *willingly* turn yourself ignorant? If religious people wanted to believe stuff they can’t prove – fine. As long as they’re hurting only themselves with their ideas, I don’t care. But they can’t do that. They have to force everyone else to follow their beliefs because evidently God is such a prick he can’t stand a difference of opinion in this life (even though Christians keep telling us that their kingdom is the next world and they don’t care about this one – other than putting their language on our money, in our schools, in the laws they make, etc, etc, etc….).

  3. Religious dogma sucks out loud. Believe it!
    Dogma of any kind is bad,though.
