The biggest delusion in religion is that god answers prayers . If that were so,where was he when Hitler was killing six million Jews and five million gypsies,poles,catholics,Mormons,cripples,and assorted protestants,atheists and others? You can bet that many millions of prayer asking for his help were being offered up daily. Is he deaf or did he just not care. The obvious conclusion is that he is just not there.
There is a common expression “there are no atheists in the fox hole”. I beg to differ-that is where I became an atheist.
I was raised a catholic but cannot understand how anyone could still be a believer after the child rapes by priests and the subsequent cover-up by the church.
