RANDOM THOUGHTS (NUMBER ONE)
Organized religions have been and continue to be the most damaging things to life on this planet. More damage and destruction have been perpetrated on humankind in the name of God and Religion than in all the plagues, catastrophes and wars combined. The destructive forces of Islamic Militancy are just the most recent manifestation of this devotion to blind faith and allegiance to one's religion. The shear hippocracy of appearing in a place of worship to pray to one's God then, leaving the site to go out and kill or maim someone else, is astounding. Truth be told, this has been going on for thousands of years dating back to the Egyptians, Romans, Greeks, and all the rest of "civilized men." It will continue unabated until people come to the realization that they are merely tools of these religions and the zealots who practice them.Even people like Thomas Jefferson were leery of the effects of religion on men.
