Cymbal: It's not 1995, and this is not an AOL chat room. Please don't think it's cool to post song lyrics. Never was cool in the first place.

MonoChango: Maybe.. Just maybe, it depends on the Religion.
Citrate1007: Most people just use religion to justify their own inner demons to themselves.

encyclopediaplushuman: Religion is about as effective at spreading love and tolerance as the Catholic church is about cleansing the world of pedophiles.But what does spread love and tolerance?[pinkie.mylittlefacewhen.com image 850x478]
Amos Quito: Solution: Put the fish in the barrel of the gun.

Pitabred: Science is a method, not a conclusion.
I drunk what: for the smartest guy on fark you sure are dumb
Egoy3k: The Southern Dandy: Egoy3k: I find that a bottle of wine is much more effective than religion when I attempt to love my neighbor. Rum works too, but she doesn't drink beer.A $20 also works"Want to come in for a drink?" Tends to be more profitable than, "Hey here's twenty dollars, lets screw."YMMV

jso2897: Rich Cream: I drunk what: Rich Cream: Well, if we're talking about what he-said-He-said then let's get back to the original "quote" and not some made-up thing.the whole thing is made up, they are all myths, only science is realYou only believe in science. It's not tangible either.Tell that to the elderly residents of Hiroshima or Nagasaki.
skipjack: Communication is key. For instance, a smart gentlemen once said "That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence." and also said "religion poisons everything". Both statements are used universally by many atheists yet the second statement was spoken without proper evidence, and faithfully believed by many.

letrole: Atheism is a Religion.
david_gaithersburg: I get worried when Fark goes more than 24 hours without a hate speech thread.Seig heil!
SmackLT: I believe that the study was done in earnest, and maybe it is instructive that a lot of people are hypocrites.I spent a lot of time reading different religious texts and found a lot in those different texts to inspire me. When my focus was on that, I believe that my general attitude toward others was better than when it had been a while. It took my focus off of me and onto principles that I consider more universal. I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing in itself.
umad: You guys are arguing over whether Batman or Iron Man would win in a fight. We're telling you that it doesn't farking matter, since they're both made up.
HairBolus: One of the purposes of religion is to distinguish an in group from out groups.A religious dictum such as thou shall not kill only applies to the in-group. Cheating or killing foreigners is fine.This perspective makes certain moral contradictions go away. For example, if you can't kill then how can an in-group impose capital punishment on its members? Easy. Transgressions such as female adultery or disrespect of elders means that the transgressor no longer obeys the religious rules which makes them no longer part of the in group and thus ok to kill.
Cymbal: I don't love anyone unless we are blood related or we swap bodily fluids on a daily basis. Everyone else is just strangers when you get right down to it.
