Great Quote: “How thoughtful of God to arrange matters so that, wherever you happen to be born, the local religion always turns out to be the true one” – Richard Dawkins

Born in Northern Ireland we had to bow our heads and say the Lords Prayer every morning at school assembly. I know things have changed today because the country has become more secular but I didn’t find out about other religions until I left school. In fact the only thing I guessed about Islam was that Mohammed was born at the same time of Jesus. Only when I watched the TV program Cosmos did I start questioning things and came to my own conclusion that all religions are nonsense.

It’s easy for a religious person to spot the trick with everyone else’s religion. But because they were indoctrinated so early on in life to their own they have a massive blind spot there.

It’s what I told someone once, something like “you only believe in X because you happened to be born in this country, had you been born in Egypt you’d be Muslim, in India and you’d be Hindu” and he responded something like “but it was God’s will for me to be born here so that means this is the true religion”. I just shook my head and abandoned any hope of ever reasoning with a religious person.

If you think religious people care about logic then you’re wrong. They just want to see their dead grandparents again.
