I thought the whole world would awaken realise along with me to the simple truth that religion is just primitive superstition
That's a good one, I was born atheist, been atheist for 45 years, and still get that feeling on a daily basis!!!! wow, that's kinda sad :(
I don't call it enlightenment tho, I actually despise that word, it has too much spiritual mumbo jumbo connotation attached to it. I don't see humanity as going forward per se, simply in a different direction. Humanity is not getting better per se, we're simply getting bigger.
As a born atheist who never adopted religion, nothing has changed for me personally.
However, on a global scale, I am concerned that more and more people are killing for religion. Maybe it is merely that the number of years have piled up, or maybe it is the 9/11 and post 9/11 killings, but I think it is more essential than ever that atheists speak the truth and try to convince the insane religious majority to give up their murderous myths.
More people in the USA every single year due to Big-Ag food poisoning than have ever died thru terrorism.
Anti-terrorist policies should be very very low on our public agendas. There are many other more pressing reasons to fight religion than the very remote threat of terrorism.
Most people in the world are not dying due to religion but due to greedy fiscal policies imposed by the international banking system and USA and Chinese imperialism. With people like Bush, I was never convinced of any true religiosity on his part, I think he was just a dumb fuck with the right bloodlines and talented political advisers who knew exactly what words to put in his mouth to give him such unlimited power that he wielded.
