    Ignorance, Thy Name Is Religion

    It is not that religion is merely useless; it is sinister. It is sinister by its idle terrors; it is sinister by its false morality; it is sinister by its hypocrisy, by its fanaticism, by its dogmatism, by its threats, by its hopes, by its promises. Consider it under its mildest...

    When They Created Their God; They Redefined Evil.

    Was The Holocaust Preventable?

    I am "anti" evil, corruption, greed, murder, robbery, rape, etc. I believe in teaching people to be totally self sustainable and to defend themselves! If the faithful Jewish people targeted by the cowardly, spineless, nazi regime were taught by their religion how to defend...

    Atheists Are Saints

    Is it really honest to blame the world's problems on religion? After all, weren't Joseph Stalin, Mao Tse Tung, Pol Pot, Kim-Il-Sung, Fidel Castro and Vladimir Lenin and their ilk sadistic mass murdering atheists? :)
