"It is true that, if a neutral person could choose a type of religion given their records, he would be unethical to choose the monotheistic strain of religion - the one that is the single main cause of 90% percent of all the worlds wars and genocides."

True. But if I go around killing people in your name it does not mean that you are wrong, immoral, evil, what-have-you. It means that I have some issues that need to be dealt with. Most people don't know their religion for shit because they were either raised that way, or had a "spiritual experience" that caused them to believe what they do without questioning it. This is why most religious persons have to resort to killing. They do not know whether or not their religion is actually true based on logic and reasoning so in order to "beat" the other deity they have to kill the followers. Although, the Koran actually tells its followers to have people "convert or die". Almost every time two religions "conflict" they must be dealt with this way because they have no way to test it for truth. Christianity on the other hand, can be tested due to the historic nature of the doctrine, which is sad because so many Christians think their belief is just like everyone else's.

The Bible is hardly a historical document.

Anonymous, I happen to think that your excuses are poor ones. 90% of all the worlds wars and genocides is a HUGE amount. It really has to set an alarm off in your head that SOMETHING just isn't right here. Possibly has to do with God's reputation of killing almost every man on earth because they were sinners (the flood)or destroying entire cities because they were sinners. If a large number of people in the world worship a violent and revengful god such as that...we end up with these inquisitions, genocidess, and war. I think it has been proven by history.

Killing people in the name of someone

(Anonymous)
In a mass of people. There is confusion among some who are not what they say they are. The true christian would not kill. There are variations in life. Just like the satan worshipers who say "they" do not kill but I am sure there are that select few who do. You cannot look at the masses because there are fakes in all things. Let get real here.

First of all I want to for the most part thank you for dealing with this issue as you have. But I do take exception with you (not a huge concern I am sure) with the following statement.

You said...Although, the Koran actually tells its followers to have people "convert or die". Almost every time two religions "conflict" they must be dealt with this way because they have no way to test it for truth.

I am not denying that while it has been done in the past...(Even in the name of Christianity) I have yet to see in N.T. Scriptures where we are told we may abuse women...especially to the point of death, or to kill non-believers. This brings to mind the Scriptures "Love your enemies"...and "Do GOOD to those who spitefully use (or even abuse)you."

This seems to contradict your statement that our conflicts must be handled through death to non-believers.

Oh sweetie. I could do the same.

I could take a picture of a nest of maggots, or a rotting carcass, and write 'God's Paintbrush' above it.

One and the same.

what is it?

im not sure what this site is. but it obviously uplifts God as being the master artist of all. i wish we knew more about the author.

author identity

(Anonymous)
actually,... we do know a little about the author. on the bottom of their contact page shows that they are in the special forces. i used to work in portsmouth, building 14 is where some bad mother fuckers hang out.

lets see here
- every child and unborn fetus in sodam and gomorah (don't have a bible on me so pardom the spelling) except Lot and his family murdered by Satan? No, murdered by god.
_ every child and fetus on the planet except noah and his family murdered by satan during the flood? No, murdered by god.
_ the first born children of egypt murdered by satan because he had a problem with some human calling himself a Pharoh? No, murdered by god.
seems every time there is murder in the bible it is on the authority of god not satan. Why did satan rise up against god? Well obviously because god is a power hungry, baby killing psychopath. God of course reacted like every psychopathic baby killing murderer by calling anyone who opposed them a rebel, traitor, terrorist. As per usual every psychopathic baby killing murder can find some way to justify their brutality and fill the ranks of their military, police and intelligence agencies with a whole mass of sheep willing to carry out their orders by torturing and murdering innocent men women and children.

I like the way you think, and enjoyed your comments on monotheism. Here are some speculations of why monotheisms seem so bellicose:

It seems that there is a great deal of arrogance in the monotheistic way of thinking. I picture priests arguing like bullies in a school yard. "My god is greater than your god." And the argument escalating until one priest yells "My God is all powerful and all wise, and further more, yours doesn't even exist!" Of course, there is no way to know if such a religious arms race was the origin of monotheism, but is feels right. It may have happened that way, and this arrogance may help to explain the bellicosity of monotheisms.

Another possible source of monotheistic bellicosity is insecurity. Perhaps, deep down, most monotheists have doubts. The presence of unbelievers is a thorn in the side that constantly excoriates these doubts. Perhaps in trying to eliminate people who disagree with them, monotheists are attempting to eliminate their own doubts.

the cornerstone "eisms" of religion...

(Anonymous)
There are therefore religions that are:
theist,monotheist,deist,pantheist,polytheist,athiest,agnostic{or open minded skeptical-such as Universism},these to my understanding are te "eisms"{well and "ic" as in agnostic}that all religions amongst humanity seem to be built upon, the basic building blocks of such, the cornerstones,the basis.

"Our ego and our the way we anthropomorphize important concepts means..."

No need for the "our" before "the."

"The mono-theistic believes it seems, are particularly prone to bouts of genocide and war in..."

Should be "believe(r)s, it seems..." right?

"Frequently you will need to address cultural beliefs amongst the religion' followers,"

Religions' or religion's.

Thankyou, I've corrected all the things you pointed out.

The last part of the page is a 2-paragraph quote from my other page on "Cultural Religion Versus Scholarly Religion", which I editted then re-quoted.
