  •  In some cases atheism has been used (2+ / 0-)

    as a religion or as a substitute for religion, and like every religion, that power has been misused.

    Everybody is entitled to their opinion about religion in our country.

    I tend to believe in doubt. If God exists, he obviously doesn't want us to be certain about his existence, and he endowed us with an important survival tool which is partly responsible for most of human civilization and culture: doubt.

    I stop short of atheism because I doubt. I do know even fundamentalist Christians who are very nurturing and caring, wonderful people. Then there are the other kinds.

    In this case, the guy was probably psychotic. Not a good mix with lore about human sacrifice, box cutters and an available child.

    Most pagans are peaceniks, in my experience. May there be more peaceniks of all religions.

    You can't make this stuff up.
