Holy religious nonsense

Reader comment on item: A History of Muslim Terrorism against Jews in the United States
in response to reader comment: typical muslim viewpoint

Submitted by Janusz Kowalik (United States), May 24, 2009 at 02:09

Let us imagine for a moment that ancient Jews never invented the monotheism called Judaism .We could speculate that without Judaism there would be neither Islam and Christianity.We would not have the Holy Land, the holy books ,the holy jihad and all other holy nonsense. . The consequences of this wonderful possibility would have been most desirable. There would be no Palestnians or Jews.Only one group of etnically related inhabitants of the Palestinian land , like ,for example, Scandinavians that have lived in peace for centuries without religious hatreds.

This limaginary scenario should convince us that that religions divide people and are a potent factory of hatred. Unfortunately it is impossible to disinvent Abrahamic religions. Humanity must struggle and count on the human reason or whatever has remained from it after the destruction of reason by religious indoctrinations. Many people strongly believe that religions are needed as the basis for morality. But religions result in wars, hatred, jihad, pedophilia , hardly superior ethical activities .

Of course, many good people do good things despite religious principles .They mighht be priests, rabbis and immams. They are good despite not because of their religions.As stated recently by an outstanding intellect:With or without religion goood people do goood things and bad people do bad things,but for goood people to do bad things it takes religion. .I would include communism and nazism to religion-like ideologies. . No wonder that these two quasi religions caused millions of deaths in the 20th Century.
