It is the OBVIOUS that the indoctrinated mind cannot grasp. The programming tricks the mind into seeing a difference....where there is no difference at all behind the "logic" of these "beliefs"
I'll check out your hub.
Yeah...that'll be like having Communion.

You cant prove any of those insulting things that you have leveled against me. Just like you cant prove the existence of your invisible friend. Take your anger out on your invisible friend not me.He's the one causing this confusion.Your God is DUMB!
deecoleworld, this question was in response to other questions that have been asked recently. FSM is, in fact, a parody of established religions, but aside from that, the outlandish stories aren't any less truthful than established religions.
You can't prove stories from established religions to be true or false? So why should it matter? What's the problem?
The point is to simply prove how silly indoctrinated religious beliefs are. Since there is as much evidence for the existence of the FSM, that brings religion down to the level where it should be.Too bad that people are so attached to such nonsense
But you aren't proving anything, it sounds like another atheist complaining!
You get the joke yet it still flies over your head Dee.
Not surprising with all that hot air escaping...
Dee, call it complaining if you must. Religion has been a daily intrusion in our lives. They have that as a Right. Non believers also have that right. It seems to only become a problem when WE exercise OUR rights. INTRUSION is annoying isn't it?
From my impression, you Atheists seem just as bad as these religious nuts Always complaining about the other half. Religion is here and will always be here deal with it
@getitrite If you don't believe in it how is it a "daily intrusion" on your life?
Really, Dee? Just because I don't believe in religion is no reason that it can be ignored. I guess the fact that believers are constantly trying to indoctrinate our children in school is no intrusion at all, huh? Witnesses knocking on doors?
I am not saying ignore it, I am saying deal with it! It is an intrusion, but so is racism/sexism/etc. Just got to find a way to deal. I understand you are annoyed since they is supposed to BE separation of church and state) Do you live in the South?
Deal with it? How? By not ever saying anything? Religion probably won't ever go away, but religious affiliation has decreased, because of information on mass media.
And, yes, I am from the south, originally.
Just deal with it Perhaps create a sanctuary with like-minded individuals and also learning to accept religion as it is. I am not saying believe but respect it. You seem angry that people believe in religion/God There is nothing you can do about that
“Religion is excellent stuff for keeping common people quiet. Religion is what keeps the poor from murdering the rich.”

You have mocked the sacred beliefs of the Pastafarians. That's ok...I guess.
But please, do not, under any circumstances, promote Intelligent Design, because...that would be Blasphemy.
Yes...to put it simply, religion is the explicit brainwashing of the human herd. If you distort the mind from birth, you can control the individual with more ease.

Parantap, Intellectual superiority is not implied in this question at all. This is something that you are erroneously perceiving. What I'm implying is intellectual honesty, which can power the will...to break the chains of indoctrination
