GUEST,Futwick BS: Are Atheists really Atheists or...... (358* d) RE: BS: Are Atheists really Atheists or...... 31 Mar 13

**I get your point, though it seems that you are saying that All Muslim societies are less pleasant places to live than all Christian ones.

That is something that would be nearly impossible for anyone to know.**

You could hold up Joseph Kony as an example of Christianity at its worst but you would also be hard pressed to find many examples that extreme. Unfortunately, the same is not true of Islam. And, for the record, I am not religious nor belong to any religion nor have any use for religion except as an example of how not to get through life.

**I believe that from your point of view the Christian societies you have experienced are better places for you to live than Muslim ones.**

From my experience, yes. Others could disagree. Qatar's supposed to be pretty nice. I've never lived there.

**Do you think it is a matter of bigotry on their part. Lumping all religious people in together? Is it like some people in Britain who think everyone in the USA drives a pickup truck with a gun rack?**

They need to realize that they hold unprovable beliefs no differently than religious people and that their championing of science is often just as selective. Saying consciousness is a product of matter does not seem to be in agreement with Quantum Mechanics which holds that consciousness holds a fundamental sway over matter. In fact, Eastern religions seem correct to conclude that matter is an appearance, an illusion.
