Payers in school bill has passed in my state.

On August 9th in Wayne county of Missouri, (My home town). Missouri voters approved prayer issue. I voted against this, and at least I tried to do something good in my state.

Although I have no faith I can grasp that the religious can cherry-pick stories for as virtuous examples or they can treat the texts as allegorical.  They can even try…

Religion is a choice, isn't it?

If anyone says that religion is not a form of programming, ask a Christian why he, or she, isn't a Hindu. Upbringing and environment have more to do with what religion you are than anything else. Why else are you more likely to be a christian in a christian country, or a Muslim in a Muslim country. Choice seldom comes into it, especially for children, which is the ripe…

If it wasnt inspired by God...

If Christians believed that their bible wasn't written by god, Christians would spend there time trying to ban it instead of getting it into public schools.



think about it. The bible consists of so many things that they spend so much time trying to tell the world is wrong.



such as: incest, Adultery, Mass murder of men, women and children, manslaughter, religious intolerance, slavery, supporting unequal rights, selfishness, polygamy, thievery, cannibalism....these are all… Continue
