"this bulletin seems to provide corroborating evidence that Michael Voris is a bona fide Catholic activist, not a satirist lampooning Catholic idiocy and arrogance. -Richard"

Nice job, Richard!

You caught the perpetrator red-handed!

Keep up the good work!

P.S.

We must stop this madness, before it stops us.

With every human being bamboozled, darkness gains yet another foothold.

I think that religious fanaticism should be considered as a psychiatric condition.

This is serious, people.

Another victim of the memetic virus, called religion, who became so corrupted, that he seeks to corrupt us as well!!!

It reminds me of the Holocaust. That started like this: One day, it's just propaganda; the other day, its the DEATH CAMPS!

We must strengthen our resolve, and look at the hard facts: religion killed millions of people, throughout the world(crusades, inquisition: remember Galilei?); as opposed to atheism!

Religion makes you intolerant, and bamboozled.

While atheism makes you open-minded, and caring. An atheist would never want to convert another person: anybody who says otherwise, is a LIAR!

We must keep struggling, my friends. The fight is far from over.

We must TAX religion!!!

Comment 19 by God fearing Atheist :

Oh look, a "concern troll".

25 million years of human evolution in cooperating groups have produced "compassion", "caring", "love". Educators only need to hone it in children, and control the 1% of psychopaths. "eternal life" is a lie used by the 1% of psychopaths to con suckers out of money in exchange for rewards that can never be delivered.

(EDIT: The Moral Life of Babies gives a good discussion about the inate morality of humans.)

So, we must teach the masses in our schools, that we are all evolutionary beings, animals, whose sole purpose is to get ourselves what we want.

A naive interpretation of Darwinism. It is only applicable to solitary species, and even then they need to co-operate with a partner when they match up to mate. It does not apply to species which live in groups, such as humans.

Maynard Smith, John. Evolution and the Theory of Games. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1982, might be of help here.

So who taught you "compassion", "caring", "love" and "honesty" Kagami? Was it a Christian? Are you lying for Jebus?

So, pack-animals dont raise other animal's offspring (in their own species, of course)as their own. I've learnt something new.

"even then they need to co-operate with a partner when they match up to mate"

Mating rituals are meant to deceive the other, if I interpreted Dr. Dawkins right. Of course it is a co-operation, albeit a deceptive one.

Comment 20 by Paula Kirby :

Kagami, you are either a creationist who has swallowed the religious propaganda about morality, decency, a sense of purpose, compassion etc being incompatible with evolution and is just trolling here; or your understanding of evolution is seriously lacking. Either way, there are plenty of books which will explain why and how in fact humans have NOT evolved into the monsters you describe. If you are genuinely interested in the subject, why not try reading some of them?

I believe in evolution. I'm just saying that the religious memetic propaganda-virus distorts these things into something "transcendent", or "otherwordly", while, in fact, there's nothing about these feelings that cannot be described scientifically.

BTW: both of you have failed to address my main concern: religion is a memetic mind-virus, designed to take over our minds, our conscience, and designed to wreak havoc onto the world.

We have to eradicate it, before our children, or our grandchildren will be converted into mind-slaves of this organised madness. We cannot let it happen.

Comment 11 by pollracker :

I disagree with small children going to church schools and all that, but i don't think they are all horrible for one specific reason; It is because of church schools that I am an atheist. I also have a few atheist friends who received the conversion in the same manner.

The reason it converted me was upon attending the faith based school they taught me "science" which I realized made little sense. They also taught me what the bible actually says, after that it didn't take long to realize it sounded very much like a fairy tale.

So whereas I don't think Children should be indoctrinated, It might be a blessing to all of us in the Atheist community if there was some sort of some philosophical after school program for teens that taught many different belief systems. This would included of course the main religions, and may be some ancient non believed ones, and than also lack of religion and the beliefs on it. Most of us can remember a phrase from our youth "knowledge is power"

I think you don't understand. Religion (especially christianity)is a dangerous meme, a mental virus, which seeks to disempower and weaken the person, whom it attaches to. By indoctrinating the victim with these ideas like "compassion", "caring", "love", "eternal life" and other stuff like that, the result is, that stronger, healthier individuals (without the virus)will take advantage of the person.

So, we must teach the masses in our schools, that we are all evolutionary beings, animals, whose sole purpose is to get ourselves what we want. Period.
