Default Religions and supernatural beliefs are the enemy of world peace, as shown by 5000 yea

Religions and supernatural beliefs are the enemy of world peace, as shown by 5000 years of war.

Supernatural believing faith-based religious hierarchies have been lying so much to their people that the more vulnerable of their people actually believe the --- mythical, allegorical, imaginary icons that they are persuaded,--- against all logic and reason, --- to believe in as real. That is abuse to a mind.

A mind is a personís most treasured possession and to allow liars and con men to effect and infect so many minds, --- should be made illegal, as well as a sin, --- but of course, --- the world is not ready for a moral religious lesson.

Logic, reason, logos, intelligent thinking, --- it seems, --- are no match against the vile con men who run the religions and the mythos they and the faith poison they use to damage precious minds.

We and our ancestors have paid a high price to the religious con men that have damaged so many minds. A huge price in minds, cash as well as; world peace.

Those con men should be censored.

Religions are a good thing. They have just forgotten that they were created to produce peace.

Not the God damned God produced 5,000 years of our war filled history.

While those same religions oppressed non-believers, women and gays. As the majority, the religious also impose poverty.

The supernatural belief fostered by the mainstream, --- immoral, homophobic, and misogynous religions, --- and their con men hierarchy, --- are not a friend to peace.

They should be outlawed as soon as possible.

This would allow what Jesus preached in terms of electing a human God.

Human Gods can make peace and I suggest we elect one, as in the Roman System, democracy; to bring peace to the world that we are God damned destroying for our children.

Their precious minds are in your hands.

Logos or mythos must be chosen by all.

Peace wants Logos, not mythos, faith, or an unproven supernatural concept of any kind.

Trust the method for peace that Jesus preached. Elect a God. A man. Jesus asked his people if they had forgotten that they were Gods.

Most had, but not the Gnostics who had taught the Roman Jesus.

Be a Gnostic and recognize the evil of religions, as well as the good parts.

I would prefer to focus on the good, but my love has created a great hate for the religious con men who harm so many.

That hate forces me to call them out, even as I recognize the need for community churches. Less so now as in the past.

Our world cannot afford to lose good minds to religious faith based supernatural thinking that is helping to destroy our world.

Peace and decent morality would like to prevail.

Be decent parents and people and tell your children that there is nothing to fear from the supernatural, because there is only good, in what you can imagine somehow; even if you do not see it in your imagination immediately. Think dreams.

Minds are too precious to allow frivolous impairment with supernatural beliefs.

Save your mind by discarding faith without facts and the imaginary supernatural realm.

Please.

Regards
DL

Well, sure, but never stopped anybody killing anybody to prove their imaginary deity was better than the other guy's imaginary deity.

Humans do not need a god to justify their despicable behavior, but, having one around does make it easier.
Getting rid of the gods will not fix the problem.

It will not stop what it causes. That is why we should try to rid the world of supernatural beliefs.

So ridding ourselves of the cause of despicable behavior is not what you would recommend.

Ok.

For evil to grow etc.

I prefer to fight evil.

1. Create thread.
2. Post a series of statements, which invariably subsume at least part of your conclusion into their premises.
3. Get replies pointing out the faulty reasoning in the OP.
4. Assume that all responders accept your assumptions and conclusions, even when they explicitly say they do not.
5. Declare their moral turpitude for not acting upon such unproven conclusions.
6. Repeat 1-5.

Merely proofing your writing would do but little to improve its quality.

Proofreading would do nothing to improve his writing. Lack of actual content or original thinking is the real problem. Also ManBearPig.

I am totally cereal.
