i don't think it is a good idea of Prof. Dawkins to refer greta christina because her mind is as sick as that of william lane craig. Somebody read her blogs ? I do, that's why i am writing this here.

Go to: Why I’d Rather Not Speak About Torture

pittige 's Avatar Jump to comment 46 by pittige

Harris forget something. And that’s history. It has never occurred in history that for the persons who has power their sheep are in some way important for them except for their wool and meat. So the example he gives (a nuclear terrorist) is possible but who gonna weigh the pro and contra. The men who take the responsibility should be unbelievable honest to themselves and had to cancel all the interests of the groups who share the power at that moment. I don’t see it happen. And let us be honest, it’s the Christian world who invented the bomb and used it. And they dropped it not on the palace of the psychopath who ruled Japan but on innocent and deluded people. So all this discussion is a little bit irrelevant. And what about the theocratic societies where torture is common mode like in the Middle Ages (http://www.jesusneverexisted.com/murderers.htm). I understand that Harris tries to give a direction in a difficult matter but I think that the only solution is to said NO to torture in any way. If you set the door ajar you let the inquisitor slip in.

For Baggini, belief in God is based on reason and evidence.

I thought it's on the contrary. Why should Prof. dawkins write a book like "the god delusion" or why should Mr. Stenger write "the failed hypothesis" when belief in god should be based on reason and evidence. It's just because it's only based on fantasy and illusion that god has created by men (and i mean men not women) because when women should have invented god she should be totally different and obvious more pratical and human minded than the dictator that men has created to the example of the many psychopatic rulers history has supplied.

pittige 's Avatar Jump to comment 25 by pittige

in germany Michael Schmidt-Salomon wrote a book for children : „Wo bitte geht's zu Gott? fragte das kleine Ferkel“ (where please can i go to god, ask the little pig). The conclusion at the last page is simple as truth. If you are not indoctrinated with the idea of a monotheistic superbeing (of course a man) you don't need him. In the best way (i mean without the negative sides of religion, if there is a positive side) you could say that the inventors of religion had better used the name "nature".

comment 54 : sorry, but i won't look intellectual, i tried to say that believers stay believers, like such one in a comment on pharyngula said : "truth is not important", it's what philocetes (comment 49) said. Normally the huffington post is only religious proganda. Besides, what Mr. Ehrman writes is old news. Reading the books of Karlheinz Deschner (germany) in the sixties we were already aware of the forgery in the Holy Books.

if you look at the article between all the bullshit they trie to smear on people and the comments they get for this article i think that the real goal for the huffington is to promote their usual lies and this article is for warming up the deluded. I don't think that Mr. Ehrman is taking serious by this religious advertising agency.

pittige 's Avatar Jump to comment 13 by pittige

If Mr. Grayling thinks a little farther and stays by his second conclusion of a deity (vile) he should be find the solution for his perennial puzzle. Believers and especially clergymen KNOW their lord is vile, that’s the reason they are afraid of him and love him together. There are numerous religious texts talking about the vile character of their deity, so they want to please him by adoring him. It’s the result of centuries of torture and killing by secular and religious rulers. Believers have the experience that nothing is helping against violence and torturers. The only way they see is being obedient and give their blood and sweat to please the mighty ones. After centuries nothing is changed. It’s the eternal war between right and left. Right being a little group of less than a few percentage of humankind and left being the rest. Democracy is not only under fire it turns out as it didn’t exist. The rulers of capitalism, invisible after their banks and artificial money-constructions, have not one voice but million voices. The problem of power remains the same, secular masters possess the body, religious masters possess the mind. The forming of communities remains hierarchies. So little minds turns to religion. It’s gonna be a long way.

pittige 's Avatar Jump to comment 83 by pittige

@75 you're absolutely right, they have started a new sort of lies like the one that the middleages are a very kind period with a loveable sort of highly educated and science loving priests. Apologists like james hannam are highly praised for their argument that the church started science. They just trying to twist reality and forged history like they have always done. They know this point in history is a make or break moment and they have loaded every gun they have. Don't forget that Rome has a mob of 15% of the human worldpopulation and they know it, they can't win with their dogma's so they started a trenches-war, it's a conflict of interest and has in fact nothing to do with religion "an sich" but with the money and power they possess. If you cut the bottom out of their theology (genesis) their imaginary evidence for their religion is gone and now its abour brutal power .

Go to: Religion: the ultimate tyranny

pittige 's Avatar Jump to comment 65 by pittige

if you permit me these two comments : i agree with comment 37

that freedom is a balance between selfrespected laws and anarchy, but i think most laws are formulated centuries ago by jurists and politicians, we can't deny that most laws in the western world were not invented by reason but by the lobbying of the great players in an economic landscape where practical freedom (read : doing what you will) is the privilege of a few gangsters who dominate the casino-rules. The history prove that most (if not every) king,emperor, pope or whatever they call themselves were not more than persons who get a kick from the powerfull function they have. They have drink the sweat,tears and blood of the people they suppressed, it is a system still existed in a more or less vissible way. So talking of freedom is a little bit halfhearted because it exist rare and most at the expence of others. Democracy (one man, one voice) don't exist, there are persons who has the voice of millions, after elections the rulers go on like there were never have been elections before and people soon forget the real history. In such a reality and with the indoctrination of the child the believer is happier in his dreams than in reality. So as long these circumstance for living exist there shall be religion for the wageslave.

i agree with comment 55. Theologians are intellectual cowards, they know what must be the answer and they adjust their argumentation for the goal. A greater self-deceiver doesn't exist and in fact they were payed for telling lies. The very few who get loose from the chains (mynarek,lüdemann,herrmann for example) are talking a different language than there colleagues. Their stories are only the top of an iceberg.

nevertheless the article of paula is a very good one and is very close to reality. Religion is a virus who poison all behavior.

a few of the commenters here don't know much about history. Read the books of Karlheinz Deschner and you shall read the reality of the real church not the mask. The article here is the real church, the hate for women is their real inside nothing else. It's not for nothing they have only a god as man with his so called son. Mary is only a caricature, it's only the maid for the men and has no power to take decisions.
