so hypocrisy in the church isn't a symptom of a system where people worship and order their lives around the concept of appeasing a god that doesn`t exist, but rather that these people don`t try hard enough to appease this god? This guy may have good intentions, but his endeavor is likened unto the Tower of Babylon: it didn`t reach god, not because god isn`t there, but because it wasn`t tall enough.

I'm not opposed of similarly thinking people of gathering and discussing their faith. But as soon as anyone in that group starts dictating how the others should behave or think, that group becomes religion.
And these new atheists should learn to keep their mouths shut. Every half-thruth or complete lie will be proven wrong eventually and when it happens: don`t start mocking "i told you so".. That is just rude. We can`t simply know everything and still we need to function in life with limited information. Then you just have to guess and believe that the guess is somewhat correct and continue making decisions. That`s as close to faith a man can have. It`s the difference that when that guess is proven wrong with enough facts, man has to be strong enough to change his faith.

And to end my part of that rant, it took me twenty years to get rid of nightmares about armageddon or rapture, name it what you want.. Even when i was dee in religion, did what i was suppose to do, didn't have impure thoughts i still woke up screaming. Don`t want anyone to stop believing, nor do i want to recommend anyone start believing.
Oh yeah.. religion also strictly forbids critical thinking and asking questions that might undermine it`s influence. If God exist, i bet he wouldn`t be afraid to have a little rebellion now and again.. Man in the status of holding the power, on the other hand..
