    • Resumen de hallazgos: La brecha de edad respecto a la religión en todo el mundo June 13, 2018

Why aren’t Children Born with the knowledge of God?

And before any religious nuts out there say that they are, I   have an example to prove them wrong.  My son is seven years old.  He  has never talked about nor asked about God,  And again before the religious fanatics scream ” you atheists brainwash them”   (not that this deserves a response other than Atheists don’t brainwash their children, THEY DO), I deliberately have never spoken to my son about the concept of God, either positive  nor negative, NEVER.  So explain to me this, religious geniuses, why has my son never mentioned to me about God in any respect.  Does God not talk to children, only adults?  That doesn’t seem like very good recruiting skills to me, you would think that God would speak to all children to get them to join his following since children are the most innocent they would be more believed.

The answer is thus:  The reason why children are not born with the knowledge of god is because there is no God to  share this knowledge.

Anne Coulter: Religious Stupidity

For a long time now I have disliked Anne Coulter for her intellectual  dishonesty.  Her comments on everyone including women, immigrants and liberals have generally not failed to piss me off.  I was angered when she  wished that John Edwards would get killed in a terrorist attack and made some atrocious remarks about his dead son.  

The focus of today’s post is not to rant on about her political stupidity but  to show a few of  her idiotic relgious quotes:

  • “Not all Muslims may be terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslims. “

  • I guess she  has forgotten about Timothy McVeigh.  Last time I checked he was not a Muslim.  And what about all those  abortion doctor murders who happen to be Christan? Oh and lets not forget the Confederates,  they were mostly Christian as well.  The Confederates are  a perfect example of what terrorists are, they were forcibly trying to overthrow the  Government , or  in their case, trying to break up the country.   Bet she won’t bring that up because the Confederates were white Christain Europeans.

  • Being nice to people is, in fact, one of the incidental tenets of Christianity (as opposed to other religions whose tenets are more along the lines of ‘kill everyone who doesn’t smell bad and doesn’t answer to the name Mohammed‘).

  • Being nice to people is a tenet of Christianity? I guess she thinks that the Inquisition, the Genocide of the American Continent, the Witch Trails are all examples of Christians being  “nice” to other people.

  • I would like evolution to join the roster of other discredited religions, like the Cargo Cult of the South Pacific. Practitioners of Cargo Cult believed that manufactured products were created by ancestral spirits, and if they imitated what they had seen the white man do, they could cause airplanes to appear out of the sky, bringing valuable cargo like radios and TVs. So they constructed “airport towers” out of bamboo and “headphones” out of coconuts and waited for the airplanes to come with the cargo. It may sound silly, but in defense of the Cargo Cult, they did not wait as long for evidence supporting their theory as the Darwinists have waited for evidence supporting theirs.
  •  Ms Coulter, Evolution is not a religion ,it is a change in the inherited traits of a population from one generation to the next .  It is a science.   While we are discrediting things,I cannot wait for the day that Anne Coulter is  discredited as a human being.  That’s more likely to happen than Evolution being discredited.

  • We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity.
  • This was in regard to the Muslim countries.  Didn’t the Christians try that in the numerous Crusades? How well did that go  Ann?    Are they all Christan countries now?

    If it was not for the complete and utter ignorance and yes “evil” nature of her statements it would be funny.  But the fact that she gets air time  to express her views is atrocious.    If you think her views in regard to religion are bad,  check out some of her other views….

    God Scorns Mike Huckabee in New Hampshire

    Funny little piece about how God scorned Mike Huckabee on Tuesday.

     http://www.pensitoreview.com/2008/01/08/god-scorns-mike-huckabee-in-new-hampshire/

    Wonder how ole Huck would explain his loss?  Most likely that God was testing him or some such rubbish.  Here’s an idea: what if God wasn’t a Huckabee supporter?    Or God  wasn’t a Republican.  Its amazing how the Republicans all  shout to the sky about God,  especially when they win, but noone  breathes a word about how God didn’t intervene or even possibly made them lose?  Which of the stirling  (sarcasm) Republican candidates is God supporting?  And how would they know? What if God was a Democrat?

    But oh wait, I almost forgot, there is no God.  Sorry Huck.  Guess you will have to just Worship at the alter of Chuck Norris.
