in response to reader comment: Islam Equals Hate

I think the title pretty much sums it all. But yes there's no after life and we all turn dust when we die. Nothing special really. Just dust. About islam: I don't really care...just another religion to keep the poor in check. About ANY religion: A prison for your own mind. About islamists: weak individuals who need to find strength in something as obscure as one man's believe (mohammad basically). The faster we rid the world of religion the greater the happiness. Oops...just in case one might wish me to burn in hell....there's no hell either.... :-)
