Go to: A lawsuit too far?

yuriicide's Avatar Jump to comment 9 by yuriicide

As much as I find religion and religious "education" ridiculous, a lawsuit like this is terribly desperate and stupid. It's just music class and if some silly children's songs are going to get on some atheists nerves, they need to get slapped in the face.

Indeed. Get out of there if you can. All the best

Comment 1 by mordacious1 :

Blame Spain, they ruined a lot of people's lives spreading their catholic nonsense. On the bright side, there are fewer muslims there.

Go to: Religion as "comfort" to people in distress: fact or myth?

Well said.

Comment 2 by CJHefford :

I am constantly stunned by the arrogance of the religious to give advice that they are not qualified to give, to encourage the suffering of other human beings through their misguided religious teachings and their ability to turn a blind eye when it suits them.

I consider myself to be open minded but the more I read about religion failing people in incomprehensible ways the more I believe it is a blight on the human race.

I will gladly face the Christian wrath of burning in hell, because to fear it I would have to believe in it. I'll only believe in it when I am shown evidence of it.

I must say I have no tolerance for such people. I don't necessarily look down on them but following a doctrine that clearly has no evidence to support its claims is somewhat blind and childish in my eyes. People are free to do that but I think it's evident that most (if not all of it) is wishful thinking easily compared to a child's fear of the dark. May sound bitter but that's my opinion.

Go to: Admitting you're an atheist while travelling in the Middle East

I am a former Muslim. I guess I "believed" because I was brought up in that environment. Thankfully I realised that it is a bunch of none sense. Regarding your question, I would be very careful around them as I myself have gotten into a few problems with friends in the past. Friendly or not, I don't think it would be a good idea to openly profess your atheism, especially in a place like Yemen. (I have been there before) I have to hide my true colours for fear of something moronic occurring. My main point is just to be extremely cautious around Muslims because they do not readily accept other peoples beliefs.
