This is a small paragraph of one of my hubs called "A Realistic Anaylisis Of Humanities Religious Insanity."
We must come to understand our weapons of today are capable of annihilating all life on earth for the very first time in history and that yesterday was the time to change our ancient ways or face certain extinction by our very own hateful hand. It is absolutely critical that we realize religious secularism is, and always has been the number one root cause of mankind's continued destruction of himself and all he survey’s. In this book, I intend to prove just that.
The entire hub is the preface of a 711 page book I wrote a few years ago. All of you people that have commented below so far need to read it except Old Empresario.
No one on the planet knows if there is a god or not, you just think you do because you need to, and that's what you were taught throughout your adolescents.
Building a bridge? Teaching a child math? absolutly every endevor we humans do no matter what language you speak or where your from, you require "proof" don't you? Everything except religion that is....WHY?
That's an easy question. There isn't any proof. Nada, zip, nothing. Yet you still believe dont you? Enough to send your children off to war to get their heads blow off don't you...WHY?
Ok, believing is up to you and personally I could care less what you believed in the past 20 thousand years. You've had countless religious wars and murdered billions of your own children and destroyed more human accomplishments than anyone could possibly count. You've put human progress back thousands of years but so what. More humans are born, and cities are rebuilt like it's always been. right? And if you read your history books instead of your fairy tale scriptures you easily discover that 95% of all wars ever fought, were fought by opposing religious groups. Just like it is today with the big one being Allah vs Jesus.
Well it can't be that way any more my friends because in the last 50 years or so, we've developed pathogens and nuclear devices that can destroy our entire species in a matter of a few days. These weapons of mass destruction are only going to get more efficient as time passes and your religious beliefs arent going to help any of you one lousy bit just as they haven't helped any of you in the past.
The root cause of war is what needs to be eliminated and that simply put is organized religion. We even have nut cases today that want to die in the process of killing as many of you as they can.
I ask you: How long will it be before one of these certifiably insane morons pulls the cork on a test tube full of smallpox and kills most of us in days. Read "Up One Level" and do what you can. That's all I ask. I've got children in this world and so do most of you. We'd all like them to have a safe, happy, and most of all, full life. Unless we stop this religious insanity now. We're ALL dead. It's that simple...
