Isn't It About Time We Banned Religion?

Come on...

You know it makes sense. Surely intentionally filling someone else's head with impossible bullshit should be a crime. Pretty much everything in the Bible is objectively wrong and I'm confident that's the case with the other so-called Holy Books. Why do we want people to believe stuff which is objectively wrong?

Can't do it. However, religion has for its entire history, been a profoundly useful instrument to entice the credulity of believers to vote for them because they too also believe in stone age fairy tales.

Can anyone point to any time in history any politician who has made it clear he is a non-believer, has...ever been elected ?

Yes. Great idea. No more imperfect men running around claiming to be God's ambassadors. Instead replace religion with salvation. We approach the situation understanding that we are all sinners and we'll never be perfect, but that God gave us Jesus Christ who atoned for sin allowing us to be in fellowship with God. We replace membership (religion) with transformation of you, the individual.

So yes. Let de-emphasize the relationships between men, their organizations, their rules, their rituals and let each individual without any organization or church, go before God and either humbly kneel before God recognizing Jesus as the atonement for sin or stick your fist out to God face and extend your middle finger.

This is this choice as opposed to men in big buildings, creating cash cow mega churches, wearing costumes, drinking wine and molesting children and let's throw in sanitizing the earth holy crusades and jihad if you don't believe like me while your at it.

The hypocritical fool speaks again. You support killing viable babies for any reason up to birth when you vote for the Democrat Party, and you have the nerve to preach against other's?

You mindless hypocrite!

Yes. It's time to ban Marxism. Their beliefs are delusional and psychopathic. Let them go live in the non-Christian nation of their choosing. Preferably North Korea or Pakistan.

You should demonstrate your courage and lead from the front by getting yourself a soap box, a loudhailer and go into the Muslim community in deepest Bradford,England where you could denounce the prophet Mohamed and condemn the scriptures of the Koran.

Declare a ban on Islam and the compulsory demolition of all Mosques.

It would be a bonus if you could have someone take a few before and after photographs of you and ensure he/she posts the prints on YouTube.

go into the Muslim community

This is where you Christians always seem to get confused. I didn't propose we should ban Islam. I proposed we should ban all religion. Your obsession with Islam causes the information you receive to become distorted during transition.

That's why I'm proposing we remove it.

Mine is Elvis. He comes around sometimes and turns water into crystal meth with just the power of his mind.

The template the Bible provides is on display in such masterpiece's as Lord of the Rings. Philosophically, it provides tremendous insights into the natural order of our world, as well as the deviations (i.e. "Shadow World" inverses).

Other Religions, and corresponding texts, have varying degrees of Philosophical insights, as well as errors.

You'll never hear me argue that there is no philosophical and/or moral wisdom in the Bible. That has nothing to do with the damage religion has done (and continues to do) to our society. Try explaining the philosophical value to the millions of people who have lost their lives because of it. See if they agree.

Excellent, then you would agree we should immediately turn all Churches into homeless shelters and place the Bible up on the shelf in libraries alongside copies of Lord of the Rings, where it belongs?

What if I were to tell you that scientists belive in God

A minority of them do, sure. But that just emphasises the danger. If this mental illness can affect otherwise rational minds then it's clearly a problem.

So..., you have a rational mind and the scientists do not ;)

Okay, please tell us which scientists are denying evolution and wanting Creationism to be taught in schools, which scientists are lobbying to stop vaccinations, which scientists are denying climate change, which scientists have confirmed souls exist, which scientists have proof water can be turned to wine or walked upon? The list goes on and on... ;)

Side: Time

Wow! What a jump! From, "There's a God" to "Denying evolution, wanting creationism to be taught in schools, lobbying to stop vaccinations, denying climate change, and confirming that souls exist." Maybe read the article. ;)

The Soviets tried banning religion. That didn’t work just like communism didn’t work. I think we can successfully ban religion from government though.

It's probably the most stupid argument in the world when capitalists argue that they must exploit you because nothing else works.

Besides which, aren't you an open and self-confessed Nazi? Tell us more about how well Nazism worked.

Communism doesn't work for a variety of reasons. However, with Communism, removing religion is merely one of many changes that a society must undergo in order for a Communist government to take control such that the Prolitariat can function correctly. Trying to ban religion was one of the smallest problems facing Soviet life when compared to losing all of your property, possessions and money.

It'd be setting a dangerous precipice if we demand people believe in a singular thought process or theory. You don't like religion, don't see the value in it, that's fine. But no one has the right to demand others think and feel the same as them, and banning religion just because you don't agree with it would be the same as banning atheism because other's believe in God. It never works out well for anyone involved.

No, not when that "singular thought process or theory" is the scientific method. It would actually set the best precedent possible if everybody was forced to adopt the scientific method. Unfortunately, this is the kind of thing I am talking about, because you are twisting the parameters of language around your beliefs without even realising you are doing it.

I see it as a serious obstacle to scientific progress. Less so now than in the past, granted, but it is still a major problem.

You are distorting the argument again into some kind of childish emotional demand, when the reality is that the scientific method just objectively works better than all the other methods at obtaining factual information which can be utilised for survival.

Actually I'm not. By banning religion in sole favor of the scientific method (something you agree with but other's may not), you are demanding that others think as you do.

when the reality is that the scientific method just objectively works better than all the other methods at obtaining factual information which can be utilised for survival.

I agree with that, but that in no way means anyone has the right to force others to agree with it, nor does it give them the right to judge others who choose to believe survival also includes the soul.
