Another Example of How Religion Poisons Everything: SWINE FLU: GOD’S LATEST PUNISHMENT OF IDOL-WORSHIP « Republican Faith Chat

I found this blog linked on today and it was filled with so much hate and ignorance I just had to comment on that page.  This person is another one of those brainwashed into thinking god punishes us through natrual disasters, plane crashes, and terrorists.    Here is my comment (in case they remove it from the blog post):

“ It’s time to stop believing in Santa Claus. Time to grow up. Time to realize we are all one species of mammal all sharing the same atmosphere and crust of a liquid hot ball of elements that will one day be destroyed by our own star when it runs out of hydrogen fuel. Once you realize we are all the same your hate will go away. Once you realize that religion was invented by man your hate will go away. I used to be a Christian Baptist until I hit 10th grade in high school and actually learned about how the world and universe works. I no longer needed a made up explanation of magic to fill in the gaps. I realize there are still a few more gaps but they don’t require a made up imaginary answer. Please stop the hate and get the best education you can, even if it’s just reading some books and research on the internet. Thank you for your time and may you have good journeys.”

    You assume that our hatred of each other would die with our acceptance of such truths. Has it never occured to you that religious extremism is merely an expression of our inherent selfishness? Human beings would find other reasons to slaughter each other were there no Gods. We would find other “absolute truths” upon which to base our hatreds. We would return to eugenics, or a more brutal utilitarianism. Darwinism is a great framework for biology and science, but when applied to morality and society, it shows a dark side. Natural selection is all to easily applied to the reinforcement of hierarchies based on current hegemonies. (The fittest are those who have most effectively monopolized the resources.)

    Religious extremism and stupidity are not the disease, but symptoms of a far more profound disorder.
