Homeopathy in the UK nearing death?

I hope so.

If evidence and reason cannot end homeopathy, the law will. – Andy Lewis

However, like a zombie from a low-budget horror movie returning to eat our brains, homeopathic “medicines” are likely to be repackaged and sold to the public; greed is a great motivator and can triumph over ethics.

Islam, where do you go from here?

I’d already written about threats from Christians and Christianity. Recently I’ve noticed a surge in blogs articles regarding threats from Muslims and Islam; I’ve collated these here.

Let this be clear though; criticism of Islam is not racist, just as criticism of Israel is not anti-Semitic, although it is probably in the best interests of certain organisations and groups to conflate such ideas. I will criticise all religions and the religious where they come into conflict with ideals such as reason, rationality, freedom, equality and justice. History has shown that religions will suppress such ideals through use and abuse of whatever powers and controls they have. Christianity has abused and committed atrocities in the past, its holy book full of violence and injustice, but Christianity has largely been neutered and is now merely a nuisance. Islam needs to be similarly neutered; their atrocities, their abuses, their unreason, must be highlighted. It is true that the vast majority of Muslims are peaceful and just want to live a life of peace, to love their children, in a world where there are many struggles to overcome, just like people the world over. Unfortunately, other Muslims are carrying their vision of Islam through acts and threats of violence.

The evils of religion

Here’s a typical example of the violent and evil behaviours of the religious:

It’s quite simple. The religious are not at all comfortable in their delusions and instinctively lash out at those that expose the irrationality and fragility of the religious mind. So much for turning the other cheek!

Jessica Ahlquist has been exemplary in protecting her rights in the face of the vicious onslaught launched by the religious:

Good bloody riddance – death of Osama Bin Laden

The world is a better place with the death of that madman. His particular form of Islamic ideology and those of his friends, the Taliban, are evil through-and-through. Well done USA. Remember, though, that this is a war; battles have been won but there is still a long way to go. But we can allow ourselves some small self-congratulation in standing up against this evil; allow ourselves a feeling of gratitude and appreciation for all those that have done the same. But let’s also remember all those that have fallen in this battle. This is a time to reflect, and to renew our resolve.

UK cleric receives death threats for supporting evolution

Here’s a sad story of a Muslim cleric who is also a scientist. He tried to expound evolution to Muslims but he experienced a backlash from the religious and, coupled with thinly veiled threats, was forced to backtrack on his previous evolution statements:

I’ve already posted that scientists that are religious are in a dubious position, and it is perhaps that rational/irrational compartmentation that blinded him to the possibility of the vehemence inflicted upon him by a large swath of the ignorant.

Maldives – hell on earth

Well, in the Maldives, if you’re a citizen then you have to be a Sunni Muslim. If you’re not a Sunni Muslim then you’ve got a problem. And in the case of Ismail Mohamed Didi this problem became a tragedy. What a hell are these islands? A sad example of religion being the cancer of knowledge, the cancer of freedom, the cancer of rationality.

There are a lot of things that are wrong with the United Nations; this is one of them:

Despite the rigidity of its religious laws, the Maldives was recently elected to the United Nations Human Rights Council.

So the next time one of you visit these islands, remember, you’re a visitor and don’t have to live there. Yup, this place goes down as a prison of the mind, a prison for the free thinking. A hell on earth.

More backwards people

Horrific tale from Kerala, India:

What?! What?! WHAT?!

Well, at least this is a criminal action according to the laws of India (even if the police are accomplices as seems likely) unlike Iran sentencing a woman to “death by stoning” for adultery!

Is Iran barbaric? You bet!

Death by stoning for…adultery?! Barbaric. Backwards.
