    Stalin, in his form of communism, deliberately set out to create a state religion using the same technoques he had learned while training to be a priest he jusy adapted.


    Mickiel is not a freethinker when it comes to his belief in god. I suspect it would help him if he could get away from said belief in god but that's my own attitudes colouring my opinion.

    You should have a look for these guys on you tube.

    Some of the debates are fascinating and a bit beyond the usual ill informed ad hominem nonsense you get. Don't tell mne anything I had not worked out for myself during my teenage years but learning how to articulate it and put across your point debate helps the development process. A lot of religious people are incapable of thinking beyond what they have been taught ( so are many others come to that especially when it comes to politics)
    I have watched a couple of those discussions.
    I seldom actually get into those discussion of proving, or disproving "God"
    Whether there is a God or not seems irrelevant to me.
    It seems one of those things that everyone has to figure out for themselves.
    Knowing how other people feel about the subject is far more relevant, because you usually can get along with them better when you know what buttons they have and when not to push them.
    (And, when you can get away pushing them.)
    The only sure bulwark of continuing liberty is a government strong enough to protect the interests of the people, and a people strong enough and well enough informed to maintain its sovereign control over the goverment.

    We don't have to know it all, only a small bit of if it. And then. At. Least understand that.
