Danny, got to beg to differ again. Your statement is "In fact, if it wasn't for the brutal actions of every religion that has ever come to power..." So, what about your favorite religion Buddhism? Buddhism has been part of ruling parties in several different centuries including during the rise of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Because Buddhism is a non-violent religion it has been overrun several times but still exists. So, another statement is easily proven false.

To continuously compare what happened ten to twenty centuries ago makes no sense. Human behavior towards one another has dramatically changed. I attributed the change to YAHEW which is the center of all in three major religions. All Western Societies now allow for the freedom of religion. Nobody is forcing you or any other America to go to church or believe. Slavery which was condoned in Jesus’ time has now been outlawed in Western countries which were mainly founded on Judeo-Christian values. In Roman times, human life had little to no value, but that changed with Christian transformation.

So, what traumatic evils are the current countries of the world propagating in the name of Christianity? Why people are moaning about things that happened centuries ago is ludicrous. History is history and the same principles we judge on today are not the same standards of yesterday. Can we not focus on today?

Like for example, Dick Dawkins' "The God Delusion,” prayer does nothing double blind study. Really? So, Dick has one study evaluating God’s power. Like all other studies, there is more than one answer and the statistical evidence most be looked at closely. Here is an opposing article by the American Family Physician written by GOWRI ANANDARAJAH, M.D., and ELLEN HIGHT, M.D., M.P. “Although some disagree, most authors report that a positive relationship between religious commitment and mental and physical health was found in up to 84 percent of studies that included a measure of religious commitment as part of the study.” Not to mention, three quarters of U.S. medical schools now include courses that address spirituality and health with 50% of all schools requiring the course – American Medical News, March 10, 2008.

If you are going to present facts, let them be as least factual or state this is but one study. Dick is an ignoramus who is blinded by his hatred of Christianity and all his work must be looked at with a jaundice eye. In human interactions and relations, there are probabilities and studies that confirm and contradict human nature. As they say, statistics don’t lie, but liars use statistics. This is especially true for atheist zealots like Dick. Remember I am a critical thinker so I can call it as I see it.

OBTW, JPC great article on the birds. I knew the information but didn’t have a good source.
