Somehow it was better to say one was a humanist or agnostic. What happened to the american first amendment, or maybe it doesnt apply to non-americans? Responding to cia recommendations his paper be closed for being critical of the us & israel, we are always making god our accomplice so that we may legalise our own inequities. But when there is true suffering, real cruelty in the name of islam, we hear, first, denial from all these organizations that are so concerned about islams image.
And even if these turn out not to be the end times (again) what the hell good is a religion if you dont get to kill somebody or at least have a certified infidel to make miserable? If you believe as more than half of the us population does that your particular religion is the one and only true faith sanctioned by the almighty, you are carrying around with you one hell of a pious power charge. Those who invalidate reason ought seriously to consider whether they argue against reason with or without reason if with reason, then they establish the principles that they are labouring to dethrone but if they argue without reason (which, in order to be consistent with themselves they must do), they are out of reach of rational conviction, nor do they deserve a rational argument. With 16,000 new infections a day 90 percent in developing countries it is now estimated that 40 million people will be living with hiv in 2000.
Preaching death and violence, as has been proven by the deadly terrorist attacks, is going to cost the lives of innocents. Unless that happens much more widely, a moderate islam will remain wishful thinking. Radical islamists want to impose them, but they are a minority.
There is but one thing of real value to cultivate truth and justice, and to live without anger in the midst of lying and unjust men. And as usual, the fundies have blood in their eye, this time for liberal humanism, free thought, trojan rubber products and the number 666. For this is exactly what al-qaida-type terrorists want that democracies should overreact, reveal their true oppressive face, and therefore win more recruits to the suicide bombers cause.
Were left to bask in past glories and vacuous talk of scientific miracles of the quran, (i. Humanity has the stars in its future, and that future is too important to be lost under the burden of juvenile folly and ignorant superstition. I expect death to be nothingness and, for removing me from all possible fears of death, i am thankful to atheism.
Some christians decided to be offended, but jerry also features tap-dancing klansmen and the producers, famously, features balletic storm-troopers. More than 110 million active landmines are scattered in 68 countries, with an equal number stockpiled around the world. The hilali incident and the loud chorus of his defenders suggest this is still some way off. The thoroughly english, thoroughly anglican policy of dont ask, dont tell has been torn up by the carey bishops who seem bent on turning the national church into some weird puritanical sect the only officially anti-homosexual organisation in the country, and the only organisation with an exemption thats right, an exemption from the new human rights act, for the very special purpose of retaining their right to persecute and eliminate their gay staff, one by one. By 2050, 8 billion of the worlds projected 9.
I think we can all agree on that. Trying to defend religion by invoking science is like claiming that three plus four equals ice cream. A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government. Unfortunately the muslim world (if there is such a thing) today is completely devoid of such propitious conditions. January 2015 as an ex-muslim myself, i am baffled by the number of muslims who believe it is acceptable that apostates should be punished.
True, many good and brilliant people believed it once. Its circular logic, and i dont want to subsidize it. Eventually muslims will have to wake up to the reality that they are no longer the masters of history, but a deprived and underdeveloped minority in the global community. The mainstream media does not seem to comprehend the inherent danger of the religious right let alone report it accurately. But who cares? What difference does it make if the world took a week to build, or billions of years if the body of jesus rose from the grave, or only his spirit? Attributing gods authorship to either version of events comes down to the same thing you believe in a supernatural power.
Americans anxiety has been magnified by our insularity. This is more than laissez-faire economics it sees the hand of god in economic liberty, which in reality turns out to be the unfettered freedom of huge corporations to dominate national and global markets. Religion is answers that may never be questioned. Every successful massacre is consecrated by a te deum, and the clergy have never been wanting in benedictions for any victorious enormity. Under polytheism you can choose your own god overtly. And if you believe the koran is the literal word of god, how is anything other than a strict interpretation appropriate? All the worlds religions have passages that are abhorrent or inappropriate to the modern age. He created this speck of dirt and the human species for his glory and with deliberate design of making nine-tenths of our species miserable for ever for his glory. Severing hands and legs and removing eyes as forms of punishment are deeply offensive to the collective conscience of humanity it is a desecration of dignity, and it fills us with disgust. A baseless belief, so long as it doesnt harm others, is a benign social ill. There are a lot of people that i look up to and i couldnt care less about the colour of their skin or about their ethnic background or religious beliefs.最後まで持ち込むテクニックを赤裸々リポートhttp://xn--ick7bf1142AUGF4S1d7BYC.com/  ASVELPyzBrwenBIscJ 投稿者：Zodwxaxc 投稿日：2008/05/24(Sat) 22:49
