A girl on another board asked why atheists are so negative and abrasive. I answered her with this:
You're not understanding the harm religion is doing, and has done, to humanity and the world. I get mad just thinking about it. For instance, most religionists live more for the next life, not this one. But I believe this is the only life I have, or will ever have and I want to enjoy it and make the most out of it.
How about encouraging primitive people not to use birth control?
Religions are anti-pleasure and anti-life. So just for a little game, why are the following illegal? Prostitution, gambling, marijuana, masturbation (not illegal but certainly discouraged) drinking, and the worst of all from my point of view, euthanasia—I have an incurable, terribly painful bone disease. Who is some priest or nun to tell me I can't end it all because he/she doesn't think it's "moral".
Did not the Lord emphatically say, “Render unto Caesar...” in other words, “stay the F out of politics.” So why do all 535 congresspersons all believe the Biblical account? Pardon the pun, but there's something “fishy” going on. That's just part of the reasons atheists are so abrasive and caustic.
A lot of this stuff is in my latest book “Saving Gaia.”
