Pale BlueDotCitizen replied to Melchior Vulpius's discussion 'Should I Lie to Children?'
"She asked you what you believe. There was no need to lie about that. It might not be appropriate to insist that no god exists but you are perfectly at liberty to answer this question with honesty. "

About Me:
Passionate anti-theist.


Religion stultifies minds, corrupts education, encourages the process of non-thinking called "faith", it breeds laziness and absolves people of personal responsibility. It teaches disgusting immorality such as vicarious redemption, scapegoating and genital mutilation of babies.

It is responsible for teenage pregnancies with its unworkable "abstinence only" policy, due to the spreading of lies about condoms and HIV it guarantees the death and suffering of millions of human beings every year in Africa and condemns many others to families so large that they cannot feed them.

It sentences girls and women to lives of slavery in Muslim countries and insults them in Christian ones, it encourages childlike wish-thinking in adults. It causes an unhealthy psychological phenomenon in religious adults known as cognitive dissonance; the attempt to combine the evident absurdities of faith with conflicting intellect.

It is tribalistic; its devastating "god's chosen people" and "god-given promised land" scriptures, combined with the enormity of eternal salvation or damnation, make any negotiation or compromise impossible in the Middle East. It tells people that this life is but temporary veil-of tears to be endured whilst making preparations for a non-existent afterlife. It sends out armies to kill each other over who has the best imaginary friend.

It bullies small children with its terrifying lies about hell and enables the hideous asymmetric power relationships between celibate catholic priests and vulnerable children that has led to systematic child rape the world over due to the ease of silencing a child compared to an adult.

It divides people and creates insidious "in-group" mentalities. It teaches people to clasp their hands and mutter tricking them into believing that they are actually helping others and absolving them of any need to actually do anything. It champions gullibility and treats faith, belief without evidence, as a virtue. It distrusts science and attempts to prohibit open and inquisitive questioning.

I am sick and tired of religion and all infantile in-group mentality, pathetic tribalism in all its forms. Religion needs to be exposed as the nasty and pernicious lie that it is so that humankind can move forward with taking care of our planet, all its creatures and each other instead of fighting and squabbling. Let's expose it through mocking, humor, sarcasm and ridicule.
