    It has nothing to do with being fresh, only with being accurate which it still is.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Sorry I'm late. I've been nursing a headache.

    I'm an eclectic Norse Pagan. This is to say, that I am first and foremost a Norse Pagan who has adopted some elements of other traditions into his practice, not that I am a member of some other faith who uses Norse trappings to appeal to some vague sense of tradition. In particular, I am exploring the similarities between Confucian and Norse ethics and Taoist cosmological beliefs as a way of understanding the coexistence of the various gods and heavens and hells of all of Earth's religions.

    Im more agnostic.

    I believe that there may be a diety (or multiple), but I disagree that our current religious institutions are doing the right thing when it comes to having faith in them.

    Nor can I continue to follow age old man made religious texts that most likely have changed over time for the political convenience of select power groups.

    Well, at least among those with an access to the internet.

    This forum is hardly typical of the world, or America, or even the Internet as a whole.

    Depending on whose poll you believe, somewhere around 70-80% of Americans self-identify as Christian. Most of the rest identify with some particular religion. Those who identify as Atheist are a tiny minority.

    Yeah, but Atheism is clearly on the raise and will continue to raise with the years.
    There's hope for a better future.

    That's unsound as hell. Declaring certain proposals or ideologies "illogical" without actual logical examination or consideration is itself illogical, and the basis for many ancient rejections of theories or doctrines now regarded as scientific truth, such as the heliocentric theory.

    Works perfectly.

    You're not denying the dogmatic nonsense you post fits any established logical framework, are you? You might, but you can't state your axioms to justify the uses of force your scams require, and hence you're firmly in the religious category.

    My axiom?

    People don't own people.

    EVERYTHING I say follows logically from that.

    The heliocentric theory is substantiated by observation.

    Socialism is denied by observation. Hence astronomy is a science, socialism is a religion. Would you care to name the man that provided the first conclusive proof of the heliocentric theory, and that proof was?

Since they are so irrational and illogical, after all, why not endure a tiny bit of toil in order to prevent the presumable irritation that my long-term posts about socialism will provide for you?

    Re: Religion

    I have always been Atheist. I see no reason to believe in a god.

    I went to a Catholic elementary school where I was taught religion and science (including evolution) side-by-side. I made my choice then. I believe this is the way it should be done for everyone, but not required religion classes in public schools. The religion classes in public school should be electives, but at least offered.
