    I see plenty of it in hubs and on this forum, from both religious people and atheists. 

    Any chance it will ever stop? Probably a stupid (and wishful) question, but here's hoping...

      Nope.  It won't stop.  Religious people who aren't motivated to do go out and do genuine good works gravitate to places like Internet forums where they can make lots of noise and feel like they are doing something meaningful in the name of God.

      Atheists will mock them.

    Highly doubtful.
    Brainwashing usually has a very long-term effect on those who suffer from it.

    The better thought would be for people to recognize each other as human beings, all in different places emotionally, spiritually and physically, and have a little respect for that without getting into this judgment and better-than crap that goes on the world over.

    But that's not likely to happen either. People value their egos way too much.

    It's pretty much the natural order of things. You know, now that they can't burn us anymore.

    Anesidora, if it will help atheists and my exwives, I've put in my will that I want to be cremated. It's the closest thing I could think of when they all tell me I'll burn in hell. wink

      What? That's a waste of your remains. Don't you learn anything here in HubPages forums, Daniel?

      Cremated, he says. And yet somewhere in this poor world there's a starving cannibal.

    No religious people seem to be chiming in, so I guess I've answered my own question. smile
