"The plain fact is religion must die for mankind to live. The hour is getting very late to be able to indulge in having key decisions made by religious people, by irrationalists, by those who would steer the ship of the state not by a compass but by the equivalent of reading the end-trails of a chicken. George Bush prayed a lot about Iraq but he didn't learn a lot about it. Faith means making a virtue out of not thinking. It's nothing to brag about. And those who preach faith and enable and elevate it are our intellectual slave-holders keeping mankind in a bondage to fantasy and nonsense that has spawned and justified lunacy and destruction. Religion is dangerous because it allows human beings who don't have all the answers to think that they do. Most people would think it's wonderful when someone says " I'm willing Lord, I'll do whatever you want me to do." Except that since there are no Gods actually talking to us that void is filled in by people with their own corruptions and limitations and agendas. And anyone who tells you they know they just know what happens when you die, I promise you, you don't. How can I be so sure? Because I don't know and you do not possess mental powers that I do not. The only appropriate attitude for man to have about the "big questions" is not the arrogant certitude that is the hallmark of religion. But doubt. Doubt is humble and that's what man needs to be considering that human history is just a liden of getting shit dead wrong. This is why rational people, antireligionists must end their timidity and come out of the closet and assert themselves, and those who consider themselves only "moderately religious" really need to look in the mirror and realize that the solace comfort that religion brings them actually comes at a terrible price. If you belonged to a political party or a social club that was tied to as much bigotry, misogyny, homophobia, violence and sheer ignorance as religion is you'd resign in protest. To do otherwise is to be an enabler, a mafia wife to the true devils of extremism that draw their legitimacy from the billions of their fellow travelers. If the world does come to an end here or wherever or it limps into the future decimated by the affects of religion inspired nuclear terrorism lets remember what the real problem was that we learned how to precipitate mass death before we got past the neurological disorder of wishing for it. Thats it, grow up...or die."
