Axel H. Ahlberg replied to allie grace's discussion 'Do you think atheism is a religion in itself?'
"It's a pretty bold, and unprovable, asssertion that no atheist has ever killed a theist because that requires a perfect knowledge of history.  I expect that more than once in history someone has discovered the hypocrisy of organized theism…"

Axel H. Ahlberg replied to allie grace's discussion 'Do you think atheism is a religion in itself?'

"I agree with that - that all the reason and erudition in providing an alternative to blind faith just tends to make it inaccessible to the people who need the help most."

Allanon6666 replied to Axel H. Ahlberg's discussion 'Are We Preaching to the Choir?'
"I'd actually argue against the thought that critical thinking is all that children need to break free of religion.  One of the beauties of religion is the way it gets you to stop thinking critically about it.  A really good, close…"
