Shocking, Disturbing and Animalistic. The catalyst of the whole issue Boko Haram group was driven by religion. The untrained, unequipped Nigerian police force was driven by Ignorance and lack of respect for human lives.

Religion Kills!!! (To such heights of evil are men driven by religion) – Lucretius, De Rerum Natura

The danger of religious faith is that it allows otherwise normal human beings to reap the fruits of madness and consider them holy.

Because each new generation of children is taught that religious propositions need not be justified in the way that all others must, civilization is still besieged by the armies of the preposterous. We are, even now, killing ourselves over ancient literature. Who would have thought something so tragically absurd could be possible.

I am not necessarily claiming that atheism increases morality, although humanism – the ethical system that often goes with atheism – probably does. Another good possibility is that atheism is correlated with some third factor, such as higher education, intelligence or reflectiveness, which might counter act criminal impulses. Such research evidence as there is certainly doesn’t support the common view that religiosity is positively correlated with morality. Correlation evidence is never conclusive.

Before I leave you just a nice quote from the Kings James version of the Bible “ Finally brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report: if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on those things.”

Stop the Hate, killing each other.
