You know...religion aside? I can't even get to understanding a "human" [male] subjegating another human [female] based on a two-thousand year spiritual conjecture. It was HUMANS who took over and destroyed African nations, it was HUMANS who took and destroyed Native American nations, where oh where is the so-called GOD in that? So until I get the reasonable humane answers to the WHYs...Africa will NEVER be free or regain what the riches she had before and the Latino/Hispanics population will...

Yeah .... it's kinda hard for me to put the blame "religion" .... before I put it on the HUMAN BEING factor that corrupts it!! Simply introducing Christianity to our slave ancestors may not have been such a bad thing ... but using abuse, torture and death to force the acceptance of it ... on people who already had/practiced their own form of "religion" is what makes our unwavering adherence to it all the more disgusting and inhumane, IMO. Religion may be the 'vehicle' by which 'crimes...

I think the author is saying as such, Koco/ER, when he states/speaks of: " The truth, alas, is that the science fiction archetype of the mad scientist who craves to dominate the world has been replaced by the mad cleric who can only conceive of the world in his own image, proudly flaunting Bond's Double-0-7 credentials -- Licensed to Kill" I read it as the "you" was understood in that it is/was man(human beings) who/that created/concocted all these religions that extract the worst from...

Ummmm ... well, actually, I see it kind of differently, Sunnubian ... I don't see "religion" in and of itself, being anything necessarily bad. Pretty much all the religions that I have any personal knowledge of tend to have the same basic fundamental tenants: 1) There is a "God"/"Supreme Being" that it's centered around; 2) it has a set of "rules"/"laws" that govern it; and 3) there is some directive to somehow acknowledge/worship/show reverence to that "God"/"Supreme Being" in some way. And...

I don't believe it is necessarily religion itself, especially in this day and age, but, I do believe that it has been man all along that has distorted what the religion is supposed to be or mean for his own gain and/or control over the masses (in the place of God, really).

Exactly sista ER!!!! Initially the Romans and Greeks didn't really have a religion per se. That came afterwards.
