What a blight on human progress religion is:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-19311098

The BBC said:
Pakistani police have arrested a mentally disabled 11-year-old girl after a mob accused her of desecrating pages of the Koran. The mob demanded the Christian girl's arrest and threatened to burn down Christian homes outside the capital Islamabad, local media say.

Officials said the girl could not properly answer police questions. Her parents have been taken into protective custody following threats and other Christian families have fled. It is thought that the girl has Down's syndrome.
Disabled kid supposedly desecrates one copy of a holy book.
{processed in religious hive mind}
Conclusion of thought process: Burn Christian homes!

Yeah that's proportional! Mountain meet molehill.

The BBC said:
Many of those accused of blasphemy have been killed by violent mobs, while politicians who advocate a change in legislation have also been targeted. Last year, Shahbaz Bhatti, the minister for minority affairs, was killed after calling for the repeal of the blasphemy law.
FFS. This is the 21st century, right?

Yes it is, and there are digital copies of books. This guy must be really popular:

Fact is that most religions preach peace, tolerance and forgiveness, its the interpretation of the lunatics that brings it to this. Appalling!! :cry:

Religion is bullshit.... it's a bunch of made up stories and everyone has their favourite (or somejust don't care..... like me) and all it does is cuase fights, arugments and war because once person thinks that their made up person is better than someone elses made up person!

Bunch of f*cking idiots.

That's it in a nutshell. Religious people believe in fairies. Or rather one fairy. After all, fairies at the bottom of the garden is a ridiculous idea. But believe in a miracle-performing sky fairy and hey presto that's perfectly credible, especially if they're the sort of all-powerful being who can manifest themselves through self-portraits on burnt food. Apparently.


A believer believes that their chosen fairy is better than anyone else's chosen fairy, because some their corresponding holy book says so and obviously it's the irrefutable word of that fairy even though it was written by men with an obvious control agenda, or early historians trying to document evens within a framework of total ignorance about even basic natural phenomena.

Holy books are invariably full of contradictions, subject to dodgy translations, are laughably wrong about simple facts, or are so vaguely worded that it's all in the interpretation. Not one that I'm aware of contributes any genuine knowledge, and humanity wouldn't enjoy any of the benefits it does today if it were left to any brand of iron/bronze age fairy worship. And yet even today people take these myths and fables utterly seriously.

History would be better off, and the future would be better off if reason and genuine progress had taken the place of violently perpetuating the belief in fairies.
