    I was wondering at what point you were going to stop being reasonable and tolerant in this thread and start being matt foley again. This seems a lot more familiar.

    By the way welcome to DP we always can use another Conservative to fight the evils of Liberalism.
    Like 26-yes/33-no? I counted. That is the numbers of posters who were signed in and voted one way or another.

    Re: Do you believe in God?

    Do I believe in god? yes. Do I believe you will face eternal punishment if you don't believe? No. Do I think we know what or who god is? No. Do I think organized religion does more good than harm? Yes. Do I think there is some organized religion that is necessary for our immortal souls? No. Do I think that there is only one god, and he is Allah? Well, I think you can guess the answer to that one.

    That's really the question though, does organized religion do more good than harm? Can we get the same or more good and get rid of the superstitious nonsense? Embracing rationality can get you the same place and do the same thing and it doesn't involve people strapping bombs on themselves or flying airplanes into buildings.

    What can religion give us that is demonstrably true and cannot be achieved as well or better through secular means?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    The only things that are demonstrably true is that people are happier when they follow the teachings of Christ as found in the New Testament, when they get married before having children, and when they work at staying married and being a part of a close knit family unit.

    When they go off the deep end and want to go kill people who have different beliefs, then the harm definitely exceeds the good.

    Except lots of people are able to be just as happy or happier, do all the same things and not have to rely on social delusion to do it. Christian divorce rates exceed atheist divorce rates, you know. Belief in an imaginary friend doesn't stop Christians from doing anything.

    When they go off the deep end and want to go kill people who have different beliefs, then the harm definitely exceeds the good.
    Only if you define "harm" very narrowly. I think it's harmful to believe anything that is not factually true. There are tons of examples of theists of all stripes who do bad things, or allow bad things to be done, because of their beliefs. It's not just killing others.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
