Maybe it’s getting to me, but all the stories of cult leaders raping and swapping children and wives; Mormon fathers beating their daughters; Muslims stoning to death a 13 year old rape victim because she lost her virginity; Catholic bishops making a 9 year old rape victim carry to term: etc..., you start to wonder if the insanity will ever end (and how). Now I’m not naive that terrible things didn’t happen before I became more interested in all this, but just seeing the shear volume collected on various atheist websites now can get to you. The cruel injustices in the name of "God" that are suffered by woman and especially children piss me off the most.
If anyone has read (or cared about) my comments, I tend to emphasize the incredible ignorance it’s all based on. I believe knowledge, education, and reason over the long haul will drag us out of what’s left of the Dark Ages. I know I won’t see it in my lifetime and my kids probably won’t see it either, but maybe… just maybe… someday…
On the flip side, this website does give some hope that there can be a community of rational thinking people to share ideas and stories. I find myself visiting this site first now to catch up on certain posts and blogs throughout the day and I am grateful for many of your insights. This is a House of Reason built on a Foundation of Knowledge.
I guess I needed to rant a little up above and appreciate your time reading it.
