Intolerance can be a virtue.  Reading Move Any Mountain, I was reminded again that intolerance can be a worthwhile virtue.  The Christian mountebanks, who take time off from their child and spousal abuse to lead their gullible congregations in celebrating Christmas, are well aware that the only significant events of the month of December 2009 were the Winter Solstice and the Blue Moon.  May the Christian fundamentalists rot in hell for all eternity!  The Muslim clerics, busy encouraging the young men of the ummah to blow themselves up in defence of their religious wasteland, should be helped to check out the 70 virgins for themselves.  Allah has reserved the hottest part of hell for them.  The Zionist zealots, stealing the ancestral villages of the Palestinians, deserve the death and destruction that they so eagerly await.  Jehovah will surely condemn them to everlasting Gehenna.  The greasy politicians, engorging themselves at the expense of their gullible supporters, will inevitably stand condemned to life at hard labour in the salt mines.
And a Happy New Year to you too!


  1. Don you have understated things a bit. It is 72 virgins.

  2. Thanks Don, I needed that this morning! - Scotty

  3. Don, I trust you will post this opposing view in the spirit of tolerance. It comes from the book of I John Chapter 5 in the Bible. It matters not whether Jesus was born in December or April. What matters is whether you and your readers believe that He came and is the Son of God. You may not believe that the earth revolves around the sun, your unbelief does not in any way affect the earth's rotation. It sounds to me like those who dont believe are imposing a death sentence on themselves, because they shoose not to believe. And there are no appeals in heaven. Your choice. I choose life.

    "6This is the one who came by water and blood—Jesus Christ. He did not come by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth. 7For there are three that testify: 8the[a] Spirit, the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement. 9We accept man's testimony, but God's testimony is greater because it is the testimony of God, which he has given about his Son. 10Anyone who believes in the Son of God has this testimony in his heart. Anyone who does not believe God has made him out to be a liar, because he has not believed the testimony God has given about his Son. 11And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.

  4. This is the last time I publish any superstitious ravings on this site. I want no Hindu, Muslim, Bhuddist, or Voodoo rejoinders. Though, personally, I prefer the Sikhs.

    Sorry for the strong language. I believe all religion is superstitious nonsense, mainly designed to give old men power over other people by manipulating their fears of the darkness and inevitable death. It is not to be encouraged, especially in young and impressionable minds.


  5. Wasn't it 72 white raisins instead of 72 virgins?

  6. Don,

    Thanks for saying what needs to be said, again and again and again.

    And, Anonymous, Don was right about the 70 virgins,since i have it on good authority that, because of the ever greater paucity of virgins, the reward now stands at 70 undeflowered maidens.

  7. Our political platforms are infested with calls for a return to Christianity. If you want a nation ruled by religion, move to Iran.

  8. Religion is regarded by the common people as true,
    by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful - Seneca

  9. Religion is "what one tries to do for God". It is not to be confused with what God has done for mankind. I agree that much of the world's ills are to be laid to the foot of religion.

    Those who share Don's atheistic views may give him comfort and may derive comfort from someone who shares their views. They must hope they are correct. I am afraid to say more before I am censored by Don.

  10. Dear Don,

    As a Christian agnostic. I endorse your view that healthy skepticism of anything is both healthy and useful and fully support your condemnation of religious charlatanry wherever it exists.

    Yet I think your wholesale condemnation of all religion as superstitious nonsense may have been not only cavalier but less than a respectful, well considered philosophic sweep. The eminent and brilliant if controversial Lord Chief Justice Denning, for example, would have held the opposite view because he felt, and was not alone in his conviction, that the tenets of all legal systems were rooted in the moral foundations of religion.

    Isn’t it not a logical syllogism for you, Don, like him trained in that same law, to proclaim it the child of superstitious nonsense? Granted, superstition it may be. But in this context, nonsense?

    All the best!

  12. "Religion is the Opiate of the Masses"

  13. Live a good life.

    If there are gods and they are just, they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by.

    If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them.

    If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.

    - Marcus Aurelius, philosopher and writer (AD121-180)
