    And Judeo-christian myths? Like Adam having original sin, therefore christ died to save us all. Nice, except there was no Adam, it was just a fairy tale just like all the other man made myths about creation.

    Certainly, were I to decide to adopt a "major" religion, I would look toward one that was not so rife with internal contradictions, and not so weighed down by an abundance of Rube Goldberg moving parts.

    You mean all the religious Apps that have been added after the repressive dark ages and the inquisition? Why is it those dastardly deeds are not atoned for now? Why do you just ignore them and say we aren't like that now? We don't burn witches now. So now christianity is all goodie two shoes.

    With people like the fundies in the US trying their best to force a return to the repression centuries, it can certainly happen again. I shudder to think of one of those crazies becoming president, like Santorum.

    We're not the kind of blokes who feel compelled to go door-to-door with spiritual or moral "teachings," that's your department.

    Caring for others does not of necessity include proselytizing others. Pay attention.

    I prefer Ron Paul.

    P.S. But you have the freedom to choose Obama if you wish.

    This needs to be shouted from the rooftops.

    America has extremist idiots and moderate idiots of all persuasions. The place is just full of idiots. I don't know how anyone can buy into it.

    Would you join a religion and believe its teachings if it was practical, beneficial, inspiring etc but wasn't true?

    Hmm... Well, about 2.2 billion Muslims believe it. Then you got about another 2 billion Christians who do. Don't forget, another 13 million or so Jews in the world who do.

    Maybe the majority of the worlds population is all deluded sonhouse ! Except you ofcourse. You got it all figured out, huh ? 🙄

    sorry you are simply evading the question, for while you are prepared to continually
    criticise religions in general, it is clear that you have no real answers to lifes
    greatest questions yourself nor any legitimate way to demonstrate how your
    abhorrence of religion helps anyone in any way. Indeed i will ask it again, what do
    you hope to accomplish by continually tearing down the pillars of other peoples
    religious beliefs? If it has no meaning for you then that is fine, but it has meaning
    for other people, who are not you and who gain all sorts of benefits from accepting
    these things.

    I find it infinitely more disturbing that secularists are able to moralise denying life to
    115, 000 innocents every single day on the basis of social convenience under the
    guise of freedom, if they are prepared to do this, there is no end to what they can
    morally justify.

    tell that to the millions who have been helped to overcome all manner of difficulties
    from prostitution to drug abuse through the application of Biblical principles!
