Notable Quotable

On Debunking Christianity

All religions have the same faith-based foundation. When faith is a foundation anything can be believed. --John W. Loftus


Faith is the foundation and fear is the stick in Christianity.  It is true, however, that with faith anything can be believed.  One can look forward to any sort of an afterlife.  72 virgins?  Streets paved in gold?  Life in other dimensions?  Gods and goddesses of their own worlds?  Xenu will welcome you in person? The list goes on and on.

What will you  do for your faith?  Murder an abortion doctor?  Fly into a  building filled with unbelievers?  Enslave a population?  Torture heretics?  Burn the unrighteous at the stake?  Go to war for god?Faith is the path to blindness.  Reason is a reality check.  This world could use more reality checks and a lot less faith.
