Fuck All Religion

All the good religion has ever done, from the beginning of time until now, multiplied by a thousand, does not outweigh the evil of this one act. It isn't worth it. It is an abomination. God's little "joke" on humanity.

That article was shocking cold about the fact that a man is dead. The vast majority is about some stuipd statue. Even his father is talking about the statue. Tragic.

Tragedy is when something unforeseeable and unexpected and bad happens. You really think this is unforeseeable? If so, let me ask you this. What if you traveled to India or Malaysia or someplace, went to some gay fuckball vishnu bullshit shrine or temple or something, in full view of people, and pissed all over it? Would you be "shocked" if you were immediately beaten to death? Is that unforeseeable? Unexpected? Hence, "tragic?"

I mean, this is fucking Hinduism for god's sake! Or how about if you drew a caricature of Mohammed on a piece of paper and ran around holding it up? Being torn to shreds immediately by the crowd would be unexpected? Unforeseeable?

Unforeseeable as day follows night. So that makes it not a tragedy but an evil force that exists everywhere and behaves in utterly predictable ways. That's religion.

Well, it was unforseeable that a healthy person in his 20's woke up that morning and ened up dead at the end of the day. Yes, once he started on the statue, he was pretty much dead. Also, I don't know that tradegy (not in the dramatic sense) has to be unexpected. Anyway, that is splitting hairs as I am in agreement that it was not unforseen. India was really strange. In some ways, the people were incredibly nice and patient. Patient and tolerant to a fault. I remember sitting on line in the airport, not moving for about an hour, going absolutely apeshit. The only other people getting adjitated were the other foreigners. The Indians just sort of laughed it off. But then, every once in a while, the streets would be closed because there was a traffic accident and people were roiting in the streets for reasons I never quite understood. One thing I did understand was that if our car hit a cow (they wandered the streets freely) we were gonna die. Not from the impact, but from the people in the street. A little nerve wracking.

There was a great article in the times a while back on Europe's gift of atheism. I guess the right wing nuts are trying to get Christanity all in the EU constitutions, etc. to keep the Turks out. Anyway, this article points out that in the past, religion was defended as what kept us from savagry and everyone out for their own influence. His point is that it has turned out to be the exact opposite. Our nature is better than that. Without religion, we are still kind and charitable on occaision. What religion is doing is to justify doing what we damn well know is wrong in the name of God.
