Religious people are dangerous. They can not think for themselves, but instead cling to every word the bible says. Religious fanatics can somehow throw out all scientific evidence and replace it with the word of one book that has no credibility. They want to spread their illness to the rest of the world and contaminate the remaining 10% to 15% of the sane population. Atheists usually know and understand what is written in the bible better than those who claim to follow its word. Religious fanatics want to convert your children and will stop at nothing. They want the right to force you to follow their ideas and beliefs and restrain any conflicting beliefs or activities.

Recognizing religion as a class of mental illness would be a start in curing this disease. We should develop support groups, maybe along the lines of Alcoholics Anonymous - “My name’s Mike and I’m a recovering Christian ...”


I've been saying this for decades already. The Abrahamic (judeo-Christian) religions are like a plague, a spreading disease which kills the human ability for reason and logic. It holds back human progression and intellectual development overall.

I often visualize this earth as an apple with a spreading rotten spot on it, the rotten spot being the Abrahamic mindset.

Read this kind of delusional rubbish;

Quote:
WESTMINSTER, UK, August 15, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A priest of Westminster, the leading diocese of the Catholic Church of England and Wales, has written that promiscuity, whether homosexual or heterosexual, can lead to dire spiritual consequences, in addition to the dangers to physical health.

Promiscuity, as well as homosexuality and pornography, says 73 year-old Fr. Jeremy Davies, is a form of sexual perversion and can lead to demonic possession. Offering what may be an explanation for the explosion of homosexuality in recent years, Fr. Davies said, "Among the causes of homosexuality is a contagious demonic factor."

Fr. Davies continues: "Even heterosexual promiscuity is a perversion; and intercourse, which belongs in the sanctuary of married love, can become a pathway not only for disease but also for evil spirits."

"Some very unpleasant things must be mentioned because young people, especially, are vulnerable and we must do what we can to protect and warn them," he told the Catholic Herald.

He also said that Satan is responsible for having blinded most secular humanists to the "dehumanising effects of contraception and abortion and IVF, of homosexual 'marriages', of human cloning and the vivisection of human embryos in scientific research." Extreme secular humanism, "atheist scientism", is comparable to "rational satanism" and these are leading Europe into a dangerous state of apostasy. "Only by a genuine personal decision for Christ and the Church can someone separate himself from it."

Fr. Davies' (an Oxford graduate who is also a qualified physician) comments come in conjunction with the publication of his new book, entitled, "Exorcism: Understanding Exorcism in Scripture and Practice" published earlier this year by the Catholic Truth Society (CTS).

In the Catholic Church, exorcisms can only be performed by a priest who has the "express" permission of his bishop. According to the Code of Canon Law, only experienced priests can be chosen who exhibit, "piety, knowledge, prudence, and integrity of life." Before the official rite of exorcism is used, the subject must also be examined thoroughly by doctors and psychiatrists to rule out any non-spiritual causes of his difficulties and physicians are often asked to assist during the course of an exorcism.

Fr. Davies also warns in his book against so-called New Age and occult practices, as well as trendy exercise and "spiritual healing" regimens derived from eastern religions.

"The thin end of the wedge (soft drugs, yoga for relaxation, horoscopes just for fun and so on) is more dangerous than the thick end because it is more deceptive - an evil spirit tries to make his entry as unobtrusively as possible."

"Beware of any claim to mediate beneficial energies (eg. reiki), any courses that promise the peace that Christ promises (eg. enneagrams), any alternative therapy with its roots in eastern religion (e.g. acupuncture)." Needless to say, overtly occult activities such as séances and witchcraft are "direct invitations to the Devil which he readily accepts."

Fr. Davies was appointed exorcist of the Westminster Archdiocese in 1986 after a four month training period in Rome. In 1993 he co-founded, with Italy's Father Gabriele Amorth, the International Association of Exorcists which now has hundreds of members worldwide. In 2000, Fr. Davies told the Independent newspaper that incidents of demonic possession are rising dramatically along with the increase of New Age beliefs and practices, ignorance of the Bible and a growth in spiritual confusion.

"At the centre of this is man's ever-growing pride and attempted self-reliance. Man trying to build a better world without God - another Tower of Babel," he said. In 2005, the Vatican recently made headlines around the world by publicly announcing the launch of a course on exorcism for priests

The Church's writings on exorcism and demonic possession say that a person can be influenced or even possessed by demonic forces when they are "hardened" in serious sin and the Church specifies that these include people who are involved in heavy drug use, violence and sexual perversions. It is also noted that the "heinous crime" of abortion exacerbates these. Italian exorcist Fr. Gabriel Amorth writes that it is particularly difficult to liberate a victim who is guilty of abortion, and that this can take a "very long time".

Seriously, how-on-earth can anyone in his right state of mind be part of such bullshit-spreading group of fools. One HAS to be mentally ill to come up with this sort of utter crap.

Laughing

Yes, and yes, I'm a fan. The man has the ability of pointing out what a load of nonsense those abrahamic religions are in a VERY intellectual manner.

Just compare the way he talks with the utter bullcrap most of those religious folks come up with (like that fool I quoted above) and you'll find an astonishing superiority in the use of language and common sense by Pat Condell. (Hehhe, not that it takes much to appear superior to those dead cult believers, but still.)

Here's his Youtube channel (I'm subscribed, obviously)

Honestly, I think these people want to believe in God because then they don't have to be accountable for their own actions. The devil made me do it. I had sex with 50 men because I'm possessed and so forth. I can sin all week and go to church on Sunday and that makes me a good person. These people scare the crap out of me. It's also all about the fear of not conforming, the brainwashing as children and the fear of free thinking. Ignorance is bliss. If your a free thinker you must be possessed. Atheist's are looked down upon more than pedophiles by these people. That's kinda funny when you think about the whole Catholic priest thing. Or should I say ironic? I find they argue from an emotional stand-point where we are more logical. They take our not believing in their god personally. I think alot of it boils down to intelligence as well.

I think it all starts with the upbringing of those people. They indeed have a mental problem but they are victims of the brainwashing and conditioning into accepting delusional thinking as "normal". It's all very dualistic and that confuses children to the point that they can't judge for themselves what's right or wrong any more and thus creating generations (and millions) of humans who lack common sense and rationale, simply because they've been thought to abandon rational thought and have replaced it with a fantasy world. When you think "druggies" escape from reality, try the judeo christian religions, no drugs can beat that. It's not a coincidence that the same kind of characters who use drugs to escape reality often become totally religious fanatics in some of the deadcults after they get cured from their addiction, they just replace a drug with a mental conditioning to escape.

Those religious folks tell their children there are no monsters hiding under their beds and secure them that monsters don't exist but at the same time tell them that there's an invisible man in the sky who knows everything they do and can see them everywhere they go, they also tell those kids about hell and Satan and such and tell them it's all real. Children growing up with such totally irrational and non-logical ideas planted in their minds never learn to think rational and logical. Normal parents (those who have no mental disorders) will tell their children that monsters, ghosts, deamons, etc. are just creations of our own imagination and apart from NOT real, nothing to be afraid off.

Normal thinking parents also teach their children that when anyone who tells them that "something bad" (as in=imaginary hell) can happen to them if they don't submit to their ideologies they are dealing with unacceptable delusional-driven blackmail and con-men,...or crazy people. In the case of the abrahamic sects, it's all of that.

Rational thinking parents teach their children not to trust snake-oil salesmen..and (figuratively speaking) certainly not condition them to join the snake-oil salesmen and make them believe that snake oil actually works, as those religious folks do to their kids.

I do think it can be cured though, I strongly believe that humanity can cure itself from this mental disease which has struck so many people on earth. I have a theory that education can cure this within a few generations and make it a rare disease, just as education has been used to counter analfabetism it can counter this wide spread mental disorder the same way. After all people are not born with it, it's a clear conditioning and what can be conditioned can be de-conditioned as well. Education is the cure in my view.

The hard part is for the world to realize and most of all to recognize and accept the fact that it's a (self-inflicted) mental disorder and that humanity can move on to the next level in our steps on the evolution ladder and progression once we cure ourselves from this disease which holds us back and often attempts to draw us back into the middle ages.

Anyway, that's how I see it.

I don't think you or I will live to see that though. You know this is kinda off subject but a couple weeks ago my husband told me how he was thinking Mary was a whore one night ,then the next morning at work he was helping load a truck with another guy and the guy just blurted out Mary was a whore. Totally out of the blue. My husband is still laughing about it.
