No Hope If Deities Persist

Christians try to convince us that without (belief in) god, there is no hope. I say that if we cannot outgrow our belief in deities, we are soon doomed to extinction. The problem, for example, is Christians believe the mythical supernatural Jesus will magically come to their rescue. Humans don’t have any responsibility for looking after the planet. They are like helpless infant zoo monkeys. They can burn all the oil, pollute the oceans, destroy the soils, overpopulate like rats, convert the fossil fuels to greenhouse gases, cut down the forests, hold a nuclear war etc. and Jesus will magically come along like some cosmic janitor and clean it all up. He never has. No deity ever has no matter how badly we messed up. That is insane wishful thinking. It has lead to monumental infantile irresponsibility.

Death Panels

The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama’s death panel so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgement of their level of productivity in society, whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil.

Sarah will spout any crap, no matter how fanciful, if she thinks it will get her on TV. She likes to treat imaginary things like death panels and god as if they were real.
