Re: US Ambassador in Libya Killed
So what? What's your point? We're not talking about Nazi Germany. We're talking about fucking thugs killing innocent people because some random dude made fun of their religious prophet guy. What is the basis of their stance here, in this specific scenario? Fucking religion.
Yes, irrational fanaticism is bad. Not all of that deals with religion, and not every single bad thing is done in the name of religion. But bad things are done in the name of religion, and the religious beliefs are irrational. It's not comparable to biological evolution, which is fucking rational and has a ton of supporting evidence. They're not the same things at all. If something is fucking illogical and stupid then it's not good. It's great that you can be religious and not be a goddamn psychopathic monster. But it's not great that these religions can very, very easily be interpreted as promoting some pretty horrible shit if you actually take them seriously. And it's illogical to take them seriously. Which is why it would be better if no one took that shit seriously. It really, seriously, fucking would.
