The Evil That Man Commits

Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam
in response to reader comment: all religion is evil

Submitted by Peter (United Kingdom), Mar 9, 2009 at 12:01

If there is only one God, by default this means that all but one of the world's religions are based on worshipping a false God! The evil committed in the modern world is driven by man's lust for power and wealth (and nothing else). I can not bring myself to believe in God...why you might ask? Take 9/11..If God could have stopped it and didn't, he is callous and unworthy of my praise..and...if he was simply unable to stop it, he is weak and therefore once more not worthy of my praise. Most people believe in God because they are afraid of their own mortality.
