..Good points from an Anti-religion Book..(The God delusion)
I wanted to share some stuff from a book i have been reading. The book is called "The God Delusion"-By: Richard Dawkins.

I found some interesting points throughout the chapters of this book and would like to say if you looking for something to read this would be a good one to keep in mind. Richard Dawkins consider's himself an a atheist. In which I do not see myself as an atheist but- If i were to to sum myself up, It would be this -I'm not claiming to know whether god exists or not, but i'm inclined to be skeptical either way. In my own mind it is Improbable that if he does exist we know the first things about a higher power and what this higher power would want from us. Therefore i'm obviously not religious. On to the content from the book...

"Imagine a world with no religion" (page 258)

"Imagine a world with no religion. Imagine no suicide bombers, no 9/11 (i have some other opinions on 9/11 lol), no 7/7, no crusades, no witch-hunts, no gunpowder plot, no indian partition, no Israeli/palestinian wars, no serb/croat/muslim massacres, no persecution of jewish people as "christ-killers", no Northern Ireland "troubles", no honour killings, no shiny-suited bouffant haired televangelists fleecing gullible people out of their money (God wants you to give till it hurts). Imagine no taliban to blow up ancient statues, no public beheadings of blasphemers, no flogging of female skin for the crime of showing an inch of it. "

"privileging of religion" (page 545)


"On february 2006 the United States supreme court rules, in accordance with the consitution, That a church in New mexico should be exempt from the law, which everybody else has to obey, Against the taking of hallucinogenic drugs. Faithful members of the "Centro Espirita Beneficiente Uniao Do Vegetal" believe that they can understand God only by drinking hoasca tea, which contains the illegal drug dimethyltryptamine. NOTE: they BELIEVE that the drug enhances their understanding. They do not have to produce evidence. Conversely, there is plenty of evidence that cannabis eases the nauses and discomfort of cancer sufferers undergoing chemotherapy. Yet, again in accordance with the constitution, the supreme court ruled in 2005 that all patients who use cannabis for medicinal purposes are vulnerable to federal prosecution (even in minority of states where such specialist use is legalized) Religion, as ever, is the trump card. When a church claims it is a need, it is backed by the highest court in the land."

Other things i found interesting in the book was a letter written to Einstein from Oklahoma (my home state). Reading the contents of that letter was absolutly embarassing. Sad to even admit I live there. They were appalled by einsteins religious veiws and decided a charactor bashing letter in his honor was needed. I don't even want to repeat the letter. Such shame.

(page 744) Qoute-

"The great unmentional evil at the center of our culture is monotheism. From a barbaric bronze Age text known as the old testament, three anti-human religions have evolved- Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. These are Sky-god religions. They are, literally, patriarchal-God is the omnipotent Father-hence the loathing of women for 2,000 years in those countries afflicted by the sky-god his earthly male delegates". - Gore Vidal

If you actually bothered to WANT to know your Creator, the words are then unsealed to you. You would then see His love. Only until you reach that point,can you then understand His messages to His beloved.


Any religion or person who thinks God hates women is of the devil, for they cannot read His Words and KNOW that "woman" means "religion" or "church".

God was angry at the shepherds (pastors) for leading His flock astray. Jesus came to "SMITE" the shepherds.


God is your rock.
Serpents hang out on rocks.


UNDERSTAND the connection. Evil and the blind lead you right to the pit. So, why are you hanging out in a "church"? Build your foundation on God's Words - with HIM teaching you, not a man.



Proverbs 2

My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding, and if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the Lord

and find the knowledge of God.


For the Lord gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. He holds victory in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless, for he guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones.

Then you will understand what is right and just and fair—every good path. For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul. Discretion will protect you, and understanding will guard you.

Wisdom will save you from the ways of wicked men, from men whose words are perverse, who leave the straight paths to walk in dark ways, who delight in doing wrong and rejoice in the perverseness of evil, whose paths are crooked and who are devious in their ways.

It will save you also from the adulteress, from the wayward wife with her seductive words, who has left the partner of her youth and ignored the covenant she made before God. For her house leads down to death and her paths to the spirits of the dead. None who go to her return or attain the paths of life.

Thus you will walk in the ways of good men and keep to the paths of the righteous. For the upright will live in the land,and the blameless will remain in it; but the wicked will be cut off from the land, and the unfaithful will be torn from it.
