Religion makes sense?

The Atheist Experience has had some interesting posts recently over the silliness of religion.

  • Science fiction story - They take the biblical story of how we are indentured to God and must submit and change it over to an alien overlord making demands and promises to point how silly and fucked up religious subservience is and just how little we as a world, or country, would be willing to accept. As they note this story usually gets to the point where the world unites to fight back.

  • Emotion is not a cognitive tool - Then they looked at an email with such poor, but also all so common arguments for why we all have to bow down to God. Why not if it could be true? If he died for you aren't obliged? Comedy gold.
