Communism was a flawed political hypothesis theres a great difference between that and religious superstitionWas Communism really credible? Many people thought so and some think so today.
Not so. You believe in what is credible and can be proven within reasonable doubt. Religion falls short on both counts"The first effect of not believing in God is to believe in anything", and that appears to be true today.
Believing in mythological figures who's alleged musings were recorded by men centuries after his death is not something I would particularly choose to peg my life on. Just because I'm not religious does not automatically mean I'm not a good person and don't live by sound values.If man is going to believe in something isn't it more worthwhile to believe in the teachings of Jesus Christ,
This is where I take issue with religious people. They believe they are somehow morally superior because of their medieval supernatural belief system. I have big problems with such misguided pontificating self righteousnessWe can see that those who are not religious tended to follow political charlatans, those who would inevitably betray their followers and forget their promises. Whether we are practicing Christians or not (and I am not) we should still appreciate living under the Christian influence rather than some of the alternatives.
