Another Child Killed by Religion/Superstition Christian parents who believe in the Bible's claim of Satan, devils and demons, allowed their four-year-old daughter to be killed in an exorcism. We need reason, not religion.

Why "Revealed" Religions Are Hypocritical When They Oppose Hate and Fear It's amazing to see the hypocrisy of religions that have hate, fear and violence as the bedrock of the "holy" books oppose hate, fear and violence. It's time for truth in advertising for the "revealed" religions!

Prayer Killed the Baby A Christian couple were found guilty of second degree manslaughter for letting their newborn premature son to die. He died because his Christian parents believed the false Bible promise of healing through prayer and anointing with oil. We all need to do what we can to bring unnecessary and unreasonable religious crimes against children to an end.

Is Peace Possible When Dealing With Israel? Before you can reach an agreement with someone you need to know that they are reasonable and that they base their decisions on reason. Israel, as a religious/Jewish state, is based on superstition and not reason. They value the ancient and bloody Hebrew/Jewish Bible more than God-given reason. If they don't evolve, reaching a lasting peace with them is impossible.

Truth is Priceless, So We Should Act Accordingly As the John Lennon song says, "Gimme some truth". The first step in discovering what is true is to detect what is false, so you can eliminate the falsehoods. Reason is the tool we use to do this. Deism sees innate reason as God-given. Yet, the religions, which claim to represent God, reject God-given reason. This causes very real suffering in the world.
