Recently joined AN curious to see how other atheists see things. In general I am impressed but you guessed it-not entirely.When atheists looks at a mass-murderer and the victim's entrails are exposed too many will ask whether the sociopath's third cousin once removed is in fact a cyclops. If I may use a cliche you are missing the forest for the trees. All of the speculation about JC is overdone. There is a focus on theology which misses the point. Obviously religion is a steaming pile of bullshit-lies on top of lies and suckers eating it and saying it tastes really good.

For centuries religion and the state have partnered to provide a stage for war, torture, slavery, persecution and discrimination of Blacks, Jews, women, children, gays, and native non-europeans. Religion continues to fester and atheists continue to argue about theology. The masses have digested hook, line and sinker the great lie equating religion and morality. I'd ask the aforementioned murderer for ethical advice before I would ask any religious figure. One of the major problems in getting my point accross is the dearth of knowledge and understanding about religion's impact. We need an encyclopedia. One or two authors per category. Atheists can donate the dough for what will be a major undertaking. It would be incredibly enriching to have the research and analysis in front of us and use that knowledge to shine the light of reason on a civilization in decay. Our own bible researched and factual. Bring on the debate. Expose the great lie.

Did anyone else see Dr. Oz and his treatment of faith healing? Yuck, in what was purportedly an objective presentation he left the audience with an appreciation for the efficacy of faith healing.

If our citizens are not ignorant enough Oz added an extra dollop of dumb. Probably some ill persons will forego medical treatment and ask J C's intermediary for a favor.

Does not science already do this? People choose to read what they want. There is no way to control what one chooses. We all ultimately do what we can to survive. I think we atheist tend to try to always find the most efficient way to promote life as it really is and to denounce lies that distort the cause of life. There will always be people who take as much of the goods produced by others and not share it and then give a reason for doing it. What choice will you make?
