"There must be something the matter with me.  If I cannot see it, touch it, feel it, do it, I do not believe it exists.  Where is Heaven?  Where is Hell?  Who can walk on water?  Who can change water into wine?  Who can…"

"Just another example of the divisiveness of religion.  It's another WE and THEM situation.  Our God gave us this land; therefore you cannot own it.  WE have a right to it; YOU do not. . ."

"That's the idea according to the "God-god-Go" double episode of South Park (which is a must see...Season 10 Episodes 12 and 13.) It also includes some great parodies of false atheists, Richard Dawkins, 70s sci-fi shows and the human…"

"You know, I was just thinking about this very thing these past few weeks, I mentioned it to my co-worker, he said, "The religions don't cause trouble, people do."  I therefor replied, "There are religions that require you to…"

Daniel W. replied to Madelyn Picard's discussion 'Religion is devisive'
"Madelyn, I agree with you about the divisiveness of religion, and your description of us/them mentality seems key.  For those in the in-group, religion provides security, sense of family, mutual support - although sometimes it seems like mutual…"
