In a theocracy, the fundamentalist is the king.
In order to be the ideal citizen you have to beat the most religious and fundamentalist and this creates an arms race of who can defend your religion the most. [Read more…]
Around half of us Brits think that religion does more harm than good. Nearly 25% of us think faith is a good thing according to a study on the Independent.
And more interestingly? 20% of Brits who claimed to be very religious, stated that religion could be harmful to society while a quarter said that atheists were as likely to be moral individuals as the religious. [Read more…]
“Islam is a race” is an example of what happens when we broaden a term’s semantic range to support our ideological commitments.”

Karen Armstrong’s Fields of Blood tries to put a more nuanced spin on the idea that religion is behind most of the world’s violence and oppression.

I don’t understand the fuss and I think this post is really very commercial. If Homeopathy can treat Ebola and save thousands of lives, its worth a try. How does it matter what it contains as long as it can SAVE YOUR LIFE. A Wife will bless it for saving her husband, a child will bless it for saving his parents, a mother will bless it for saving her son. You make ego sound more important that drawing a smile in people’s faces ! You are demeaning life in this way. You should be infected with Ebola and then after that think about writing this post.
You seem to be a writer working for the medical companies’ profit rather than for the entire human species. Had these remedies been so easy, Ebola would not have been this famous as AIDS because they are almost untreatable. But the most famous treatments come from the oddest of places. Thank God you are not a doctor !
Do remember that it was Socrates who was executed once for proposing once what the entire world believed was false. He was executed for telling that the earth revolves around the earth wheareas the world at that time believed the opposite and for this he was executed. We are far from Socrates time but you are speaking like one of the people from their times and so are the people who are supporting the cause without doing an investigating on their own. Stop behaving like puppets and use the brain God has given you.
I am not saying that Homeopathy is the only solution but it should be given a chance to be one of the solutions.
