Irina Uriupina replied to Dustin's discussion 'Here is a message I received from a girl I know - A very silly prayer'
"Religious people don't base their faith on reason, so they project the same logic on others: they think atheists also do not base their atheism on reason. They think if only we could feel how wonderful having faith is, we'd stop asking…"

Irina Uriupina replied to Reg The Fronkey Farmer's discussion 'Understanding the Truth'
"Truth, just as anything else does not mean much to theists. Most important thing for them is continue believing in the fairy tale at all costs: being illogical, choosing which parts of their holy books to follow and which to reject, denying…"

Irina Uriupina replied to Arcus's discussion 'Is Environmentalism a modern type of religion?'
"That's true. People are selective in perceiving new information: we have a tendency to overlook data that comes in conflict with our current beliefs and easily notice one that confirms them. It's a psychological fact. So yeah, it's…"

Irina Uriupina replied to Arcus's discussion 'Is Environmentalism a modern type of religion?'
"I know that, one can find a small group deeply concerned with a particular issue, somewhere... But only the CO2 pollution seems to be making it to the news and gathering the international congresses. Why is that? One would think it's because…"

Irina Uriupina replied to Arcus's discussion 'Is Environmentalism a modern type of religion?'
"I don't think environmentalism is a religion, but I do think it is often shallow and hypocritical. That does not, however discard the whole concept. The term 'scientific consensus' reminded me of a phrase someone sad that…"

Irina Uriupina commented on Paul Sheppard's blog post 'Gullible and Guilty'
"I had a very similar experience Being a christian, trying to save people from hell, then being a karma adept, and trying to persuade folks around everything had a good reason for happening... today I look back on those times as part of my…"

Irina Uriupina replied to Amelia's discussion 'Do you think Theists are "stupid"?'
"Funny how whenever there is a conversation about stupid people at some point the name Glen Beck pops out))"
Feb 25, 2011
Irina Uriupina commented on Paul Sheppard's blog post 'Spiritual Rewards'
"I guess... but I don't know if most people are ready or willing to. For most a lousy, illogical explanation is better than no explanation. Some people I know are so happy being Christians, believing god is merciful, loving, that heaven is…"

Irina Uriupina commented on Paul Sheppard's blog post 'Spiritual Rewards'
"well, that's why I have not only left Christianity, I abolished the doctrine of reincarnation and all sorts of belief systems that claim they have an explanation for why this world is as crazy as it is. i feel relieved. no reason. no ultimate…"
Feb 24, 2011
Irina Uriupina commented on Hope's blog post 'Of Anti-Semites and Anti-Termites'
"I second everything Adriana said. Not only Arabs, but most of people who criticize Israel these days are being called that, even Jews, in which case they call the person 'a self-hating Jew'. This is simply Israeli propaganda machine at…"

Irina Uriupina replied to Adam Weber's discussion 'Does Religion brainwash people?'
"Oh I know about that 'gathering lost sheeps'. Was a believer myself. Although, I've been just 12 back then. But I have been trying to save other people from eternal damnation by persuading them how wonderful living in faith was and…"

Irina Uriupina replied to Adam Weber's discussion 'Does Religion brainwash people?'
"hehe but frankly, when listening to religious people, it's hard to tell who is the troll and who indeed believes in the nonsense he says)) the arguments they provide are often so ridiculous, you would think they're kidding, but they…"
Feb 24, 2011
Irina Uriupina replied to Adam Weber's discussion 'Does Religion brainwash people?'
"Two wrongs don't make a right. Some traditions society offers are foolish. But just as you said about religion, when one grows up they can challenge those values. I mean, sure you are free to punch someone in the nose when he gives you a gift…"
