The God Theory has now been tested for 2,500 years and has failed every test miserably.

That Other Really Annoying Theory

On November 24, 1859, the first edition of a book that would shake the most deeply established beliefs about life was published in London. What would eventually be known as "On The Origin of Species" was the opening shot in a debate that hasn't ended, even 150 years later.

This book counters the biblical version of Genesis in terms of who created man. One hundred and fifty years of hard scientific evidence show that what was once "The Theory of Evolution" is now established fact.

Orthodox Judaism believes that both the Written and Oral Torah are of divine origin, containing the exact words of God without any human influence. Christians stand firm upon the bare proposition that God has spoken authoritatively and inerrantly in the pages of the Holy Scripture. Based on these beliefs, Charles Darwin blew them out of the water.

Evolution is now a fact, and it is among the more secure facts known to science. All that we have seen and tested in 150 years has confirmed the concept of evolution. The following branches of science all confirm evolution: anthropology, biology, microbiology, molecular anthropology, molecular biology genetics, biochemistry, paleontology, archeology, entomology, geology, plate tectonics, astronomy, cosmology. More than anything else, modern genetics confirms all aspects of evolution.

Meanwhile, how's The God Theory doing? Religion, especially organized religion, and science has had over 2,500 years to show evidence of the events in the bible and have failed to prove anything.

It's time for us to bury these stupid, fraudulent superstitious ideas and push for science over religion.

Atheists are now where homosexuals were 40 years ago, still in their closet. I ask that you come out of your religious closet and assert yourself publicly.

Read Richard Dawkins's article on a call to arms for militant atheism.

Watch Richard Dawkins's TED talk video .

I see religion as nothing but fraud and believe that it's time to rethink this concept of giving religions a tax exemption on local property taxes unless they can show that they are not fraudulent.

Organized religion has many thousands of tax exempt churches on sprawling properties, they take in billions of dollars every year, and in 2,500 years have failed to prove anything about the reality they teach to people who are too lazy to think for themselves.

It's time to assert yourselves and place the Framingham clergy out of business by encouraging your religious friends to quit funding the clergy. They feed off the religious zealots money supply like maggots promising a better life but only after their death. Every member of the clergy is nothing but a big time evolution denier.

Their Holy Scriptures clearly promote hatred and encourage killing people. Let us not forget the the Holy Inquisition, the Spanish Inquistion and the Crusades that killed 1.5 million people.

Religion is a large refuge for weak minds that do not wish to exert any effort to understand the reality behind nuclear physics, cosmology and evolution. They would be truly insulted by being told that their brains are 99.99% empty space but such is reality.

Jews, Christians and Muslims do not exercise intelligence and reason and base their entire belief structure on the teachings of a single book much of which has been either completely disproved or so far fetched that any rational person would be utterly foolish to pay it any degree of respect.
