Discussion by: firstname.lastname@example.orgI just saw the RD representative on our show Planet America here in Australia I am fighting mad. I do not believe in religion but would never stop anyone from having a personal belief in god. This does not mean that I think anyone has the right to preach to me. My daughter is a born anew christian and I love her as a father but she denies evolution and says Obama is the devil. As a youth I had religion suddenly thrown at me. My grandkids are in the same boat . It is my opinion that blind religion gives the believer an excuse to shirk all moral obligations (I have no choice, god is guiding me) and to avoid having to think for themselves (the bible tells me all I need to know). The damage this does to the progress of science and world peace is born from ignorance and the (very) human concept of “we are the only inportant thing in the Universe”. I would like to hear from anyone who has advice on how to counteract the rising power of the forces of darkness. Please do not judge me till you have walked much of the planet for 69 years in my shoes. Thank you.
