I'm fascinated to know why enlightened, intelligent people who have access to all the information and progress that science has brought us, still choose to believe in archaic fairy tales?

And out of all 3 of these archaic fairy tales, these corrosive, war-mongering, death cults that have sprung from Abraham, why sign up to the most mysogynistic, repressive, anti-gay, anti-woman, anti-progressive one of all of them?

How does a modern, forward thinking liberal person align those two belief systems?

Wouldn't go as far as being an atheist.

What's odd about being interested in the increasing influence of islam in europe? Not interested in a hateful way, just curious.

Islam is not any more mysogynistic, repressive, anti-gay, anti-woman or anti-progressive than judaism or christianity.

Christianity is the worst of the three if you look at it fairly and historically.

What's fascinating is that every culture has the concept of god independently of each other.

I'm an atheist but I think humanity has a need for god.

Easily led morons. Trying to be clever by rejecting science and the modern world.

I've got no time for any of them. They're all fruit borne of the same poisonous tree.

Like I said, i don't know how anyone who claims to be a modern day enlightened liberal can defend any of it.
