How  religion evolved, and the concept of God took Shape, what kind of of thoughts the pre-sprtualistic people had, is contained in the Indian Rgveda, this is the biggest literary proof we have.  I am trying to bring the great atheistic literature and traditions and debates, which lasted for almost 2500 years

Beware the Religio-Industrial Complex

The "Prosperity Gospel" does not seem to understand, or chooses not to recognize,  "To whom much is given,much is required".

I think political and criminal can be interchangeable in many cases.

Comment by Dr. Terence Meaden on November 9, 2012 at 9:07am

But yes William Sams, exactly so.

In one word: fiction.

The Catholic church is a perfect example of a political criminal organization hiding behind it's priestly robes.

FTFY.

Spud, thanks for your note. As more of us come to realize there is nothing out there telling us what is right or good or fair or decent we have to come to terms with our own thoughts and actions. We can too easily blame or praise a delusion; "God said ..." or "The Devil made me ...".
