"If we believe absurdities, we shall commit atrocities." [Voltaire]

Educate the children.
Keep them away from churches, mosques and synagogues.

Kabul:   Taliban fighters stoned a 22-year old woman to death after she was accused of adultery, an Afghan official said Wednesday. The woman was forced to stand in a deep hole during the attack in a remote village in Ghor province. She apparently ran away from home with a 19 year old boyfriend.  The boyfriend was punished with some "lashes"

 

The religion is like some poison?

Like Strychnine, Arsenic,or the venom?

Like the spores of the Body Snatchers,

Like a parasitic fungus, Like spreading cancer,

The human brain, a fertile soil for the planting of some religion,

Why define yourself as Muslim, Hindu or the Christian?

You are Homo sapiens, now with largest, most complex brain of all.

Compassion and understanding are your bequest,

Innovation and curiosity should make you best.

So what happens to this brain, your ancestor's gift?

Read about the Boko Horan.How monstrous can the human be?

The videos made by the Islamic State? Massacre and grisly executions you will see.

These people, once infants and small children, eager to learn, happy to play,

What happened to these brains which held such promise in those early days?

What came to twist,warp and block these human brains? What came to wreck the result of evolution over millions?

It was the Religions.

November 27, 2017.

Alluha Akbar!  Shouted by gunmen as they mowed down Sufi Muslims in a mosque in northern Sinai a few days ago. Three hundred were killed, including 27 children.

So what does "Alluha Akbar" mean? The Arabic translation is "God is Great".

OK. End of discussion. Whatever God is, he is not "great"

 

 

Who wrote the "Holy Books"?  Who knows?

Their purpose to punish and threaten to send you down below?

To tell you who is banished, relagated or should be killed with stones?

Who to be tortured, flogged, humiliated and oppressed?

Tell you what is right and wrong? What to eat? What should be your dress?

How to satisfy [or not] the need for sexy touch?

So do not follow any "leader", don't be harangued,

By preacher, Rabbi, pastor, priest and Ayatollah.

Do not gather in the throng, pray and chant,listen to the rant.

Do not build the Temple, Synagogue and Mosque.

Do not look to sky to see the "God",to no avail.

Out there,Newton's Laws of Motion do prevail,

Hubble's eye reveals a trillion distant galaxies,

With stars and planets that we will never see.

Religions gone? Extinct? Replaced by wondrous science?

Replaced by art and music, sport, singing and the dance?

Does Homo sapiens have this chance?

 

"The Bible is not my book nor Christianity my profession. I could never give assent to the long, complicated statements of Christian dogma." [Lincoln]

 "Religion is a byproduct of fear. For much of human history, it may have been a necessary evil, but why was it more evil than necessary? Isn't killing people in the name of God a pretty good definition of insanity?" [Arthur C. Clarke]

 "Religions are all alike – founded upon fables and mythologies." [Thomas Jefferson]
