Those bloody women - they have no right to entice these feeble, weak minded knucklegrazers - men must be kept out of harms way.

In Australia, an imam called women meat - truly, these people are allowed into my country :(

I guess I can forget about running for political office in Iran, I'm WAY too pretty!

(OK, anybody who knows what I really look like, can just shut up now --)

I posted this comment on your discussion, Hope, but feel I need to repeat it here:

With all due respect, Hope, most Westerners are so out of touch with Islamic youth, that any opinions you get are likely to be uninformed ones. I'm as empathetic toward the cause of young Islamic atheists as any Westerner I know, and more so than many, but I confess to the same degree of ignorance.
I am continually impressed that young ex-Muslims have the courage of their convictions, in spite of having their religion drilled into them to a much greater extent than the average Christian, and living in countries where, in many cases, apostasy is a death sentence, or at the very least, a prison sentence, yet they still stand up for what the believe to be true. But as a Westerner, I can't begin to say I understand what motivates such courage. In fact, if the same were true in the West, I can't help wondering, without the freedom of choice we enjoy, and take far too often for granted, if we would have as much courage as you former Muslims.
I can't begin to tell you how proud I am of all of you.

The latest, lamest Islamic excuse for misogyny --

Iranian Politician Deemed Too Pretty to Hold Office

"Iranian politician Nina Siakhali Moradi epitomized the promise of more civil rights for the country’s women when she won her bid as an alternate to the Qazvin city council earlier this summer. But now she’s had her election overturned by religious conservatives, who have basically barred her from office for being too hot."

(You gotta give 'em that, she IS hot - but I suppose to the Mullahs, anything that isn't in a burqa is hot --)

I'm anti- Muslim Brotherhood but, I'm also against using excessive force against the demonstrators.. Just sad!

Egypt seethes under curfew after hundreds killed

I hope none of these are our people.

Sorry, read the entire story, seems it's the Muslim Brotherhood forces that were killed. I don't want to see anyone killed, but better them, than us.

This is a heartening article - I loved the line about “Although intelligent children grasp religious concepts earlier, they are also the first to doubt the truth of religion, and intelligent students are much less likely to accept orthodox beliefs, and rather less likely to have pro-religious attitudes."

Did you also see on the same page - Dark arts master Harry Potter to blame for Obama, claims professor.

How religious people can twist ANYTHING - but our numbers are growing - good stuff:)

Religious people are less intelligent than atheists, study finds

Religious people are less intelligent than non-believers, according to a new review of 63 scientific studies stretching back over decades.

A team led by Miron Zuckerman of the University of Rochester found “a reliable negative relation between intelligence and religiosity” in 53 out of 63 studies. Even in extreme old age, intelligent people are less likely to believe, the researchers found - and the reasons why people with high IQs shun religion may not be as simple as previously thought.

Previous studies have tended to assume that intelligent people simply “know better”, the researchers write - but the reasons may be more complex.

For instance, intelligent people are more likely to be married, and more likely to be successful in life - and this may mean they “need” religion less.

The studies used in Zuckerman's paper included a life-long analysis of the beliefs of a group of 1,500 gifted children - those with IQs over 135 - in a study which began in 1921 and continues today.

Even at 75 to 91 years of age, the children from Lewis Terman’s study scored lower for religiosity than the general population - contrary to the widely held belief that people turn to God as they age. The researchers noted that data was lacking about religious attitudes in old age and say, “Additional research is needed to resolve this issue.”

As early as 1958, Michael Argyle concluded, “Although intelligent children grasp religious concepts earlier, they are also the first to doubt the truth of religion, and intelligent students are much less likely to accept orthodox beliefs, and rather less likely to have pro-religious attitudes.”

A 1916 study quoted in Zuckerman’s paper (Leuba) found that, “58% of randomly selected scientists in the United States expressed disbelief in, or doubt regarding the existence of God; this proportion rose to nearly 70% for the most eminent scientists.”
