Why you’ll never win a debate against religion

When a person has a rigid, unchangeable belief system, it is pointless to debate with him, because he will surely find a way to defend what he believes to his own satisfaction – by grabbing hold of the closest weak argument and not allowing himself to think too deeply …

    Also –

    Crawley and Co. on Radio Ulster’s Sunday sequence program reviewed Religulous and suggested Bill Maher was not very interested in looking at the more moderate sensible approaches to religion that are out there (I believe he interviews the Vatican’s leading astronomer and moves on very quickly)- hardly balanced journalism.

The people who brought these men to power were also as culpable in their evil deeds, so had they also been removed but is the life of one person directly equal to the life of another (an eye for an eye and all that)?

    Also you aren’t saying much about a catastrophic flood that would also be construed as infanticide?

    Just thinking ……
