Common Misconceptions of "religion name goes here"

Posted on July 9, 2012 at 1:56am 12 Comments

For those who aren't familiar with the legal concept of the "fruit of the poisonous tree" in regard to evidence; I'll summarize. If information is gathered through any means that is not legal then any conclusions made from that information or additional information, regardless of the validity, is also not legal and can not be used as argument. That is a very quick paraphrase of a much more complex ideal. 

It does, however, apply to dogma. I regularly read discussions here on points…

Why religion?



A starting point could be a discussion of what are three principle reasons that lead humans to any superstition:



Selfishness

Ignorance

Fear



or as I call it SIF



Selfishness

This is normal. You are selfish. I am selfish. Everyone is selfish. Ok, more accurately self-centered. The human mind only makes decisions - all decisions - based on a simple rule = toward pleasure and away from pain. You may say that sacrifice in its… Continue

However; after watching it and analyzing it (as I do most films) I was dumbfounded by an epiphany. This is not only a classic hero's tale but it is the atheist's… Continue

Suffer the children

I originally intended to lead with a discussion of the "spanking sticks" that are offered for sale and even for free on various xtian websites. The Idea is that the correct (xtian) way to encourage positive behavior from children is to use corporal punishment. Admittedly, some of the web sites were neo-nazi's or extreme fundamentalist but if they think it is a good idea then it must be. Specifically, without physical punishment children will grow into vicious monsters. Godless heathens that… Continue
