    The only cure for religion is taking the red pill.
    But the don`t want the painful truth of reality, they want the blissful blue pill of ignorance and denial.

    Scientists have already found the region of the brain associated with religious experience, and they can simulate religious experience with magnetic fields. Overly religious people have more activity in this region, and although magnetic fields may not be able to permanently remove this experience, it will hopefully provide more clues as to how religious experience is just biochemical signals in the brain.

    Everything is biochemical signals, patchgrabber is just going to make an executive decision as to with biochemical signals he likes and doesn`t like.

    Fact is, Al Qaeda would probably exist in a similar form if religion didn`t exist. It`s not as though brining Atheism to the world will solve all of its problems. That sounds an awful lot like a Fundamentalist Christian or Muslim. Is there any part of the brain where the Fundamentalist and Irrational desire to make everyone believe Atheism comes from? Because your obsession with other people`s beliefs puts you in an awfully Evangelical Atheist camp. As though fundamental atheists haven`t historical been as bad for the world as those of other religions.

    Hmm, So along same lines Religious folk are correct in their ability to "cure" homosexuality. What about curing conservatism, or liberalism or any number of beliefs.... Dangerous road to go down

    @Andrew155:
    I disagree. If religion were based on evidence based thinking it wouldn`t be a problem. However, the very definition of most religions is faith based thinking. So, if you think you know the mind of god you turn your brain off and you become a dangerous person.

    Sure, some militant atheists are pretty stubborn, but most that I know wouldn`t kill for their ethos (or lack thereof in this case) like some fundamentalists would. Plus, most atheists I know are along the lines of evidence based thinking - so if there is evidence to change their mind they will go along with it.

    I have met some weirdos in the atheist camp including 9/11 truthers and climate change denialists. However, they are few and far between and they aren`t that way because they chose to not believe in a god or religion. They are usually that way because they aren`t critical thinkers - and that`s always going to be part of human nature.

    I suppose you could put it that way. I`d say that it is the job of science to uncover the truth, whatever that truth may be. Just because it conflicts with your ideology, doesn`t make it less true.

    Infants brains are designed to uptake information and form connections, small childrens brains are incredibly delcate systems, if you polute their brain with a whole bunch of gobbldygook that concentrates on religious beleifs and not a lot else, you`re going to end up with the westboro baptist church, or the general population of (sorry to say this, cause it`s going to sound a bit racist and religiously hateful, but I`ll balance it out with the other side) america or the middle east. When was the last atheist inspired war? ever heard of people being killed in the name of atheism? Religion, of any sort, is a relgious cult, training children to beleive in things that dont exist and to not question anything least they might make some sense of your bulls hit is brainwashing them. A good atheist will respect the (silly) religious beleifs of another, but mainly because they have the good manners not to point out you`re nuttier than a fruitcake. I think the militantones are just sick of being

    nice to people that would happily turn around and shout alah akbar, or jesus saves and shot you in the f ucking head if they had half a chance. Ever notice how countries that are less religious are more peaceful and generally more intelliegnt? Thats because bringing up a child as an atheist leaves room for the brain to develop many more critical thought connections and allow a human being to be a more thoughtful, peaceful, considerate being. Stick that in your jesus pipe and smoke it!

    emmettyville: faithful people are nothing like you`ve described. If anything, what you described is a minority of the people who say they live by faith. There are similar minorities of fundamentalists from just about any group, including but not limited to atheism. There is more truth to faith than some people are willing to seek for. Perhaps because of fear, perhaps because of bias, perhaps because of ignorance, willful or not. But faith in God is a root foundation of our world, whether people agree or not. Sooner or later, nations, governments, movements, or groups will need to rely on the lessons of love, grace and righteousness to succeed. While religion may change, faith in God is not leaving us, because it continues to be a source of strength for most people in the world..

    @theguysmiley: the trouble is, people of any faith, cannot possibly be as objective about religion as an atheist. Atheists see all religion from an oter perprective, people of defined faith see things only from their perspective, which are generally tainted somewhat by their personal beleifs. As an atheist, I see everyone as human, and living on a planet in a solar system in the milky way. There is no afterlife, we need to be nice to eachother and get along now, and be respsonsible now, not be dicks and worry about it later. Religious people tend to have a slight history of being dicks. I wont bother to list everything, it might take me a while...And the list wouldf not be exclusively christain by any means, all religions have their dicks. Probably in fairly equal amounts.

    ahhh, a bunch of free thinking atheist kids hit the nailon the head "you should treat people the way you want to be treated yoursefl" genius!freethinkers To make my point, I give you a persoanl annecdote. My 6 yr old twins to to a school that has a lot of breterens in attendance.(weird relgious cult here in NZ, and in the overseas probably. Similar to the amish, but more non-nice individualy and technologically advanced) when my little girl told one of them she didn`t beleive in jesus a few weeks ago, she was told by a group pf 4 little kids that she was going to "burn in the holy fires of hell!" wtf is that s hit? if my child said anything like that to another child, I would not be happy, But I bet mr and mrs breteren patted their little monsters on the head and they had a nice prayer group to celebrate.... "Religion, f ucking people up si
