The Negative Effects of Religion


According to an article on The Dominion Post, Stuff.Co.NZ:

A Jehova's Witness filmed up the skirts of hundreds of women and schoolgirls in central Wellington, and when visiting private homes to spread the faith. Police believe at least 1000 women and girls could have been filmed by the man, 36, who would leave work at lunchtime to spy up their skirts on a handmade device attached to his briefcase. (Source)

Jehovah's Witnesses: a Cruel Religion

Christian sect the Jehovah's Witnesses - with 64,000 active 'disciples' in Australia - are a cruel religion with no soul, according to Melbourne cultbuster Raphael Aron.

"I am still waiting for a justification for someone to be able to rip away a five or six year old child from their extended family because Mum or Dad have decided to leave the Jehovah's Witnesses," he said.

Prayer does not work!

To date, there is no evidence that prayer works. Yet, the tyranny of religions and superstition doom many of our young to suffer and die at the mercy of their parent's stupidity.

Taslima Nasreen, an award-winning writer, physician, Secular Humanist and human rights activist, writes about how Islamists in Bangladesh, where she was born, are killing atheists.

"Four people were killed and more than 200 injured in Bangladesh yesterday as hundreds of Islamists clashed with police in Dhaka and other major cities demanding execution of “atheist bloggers” they accused of blasphemy." (Read article)

We often wonder, if there is intelligent life on another planet somewhere in the universe. To date, we have no evidence that this is the case.


We may soon discover that intelligent life, indeed, may be in it's ‘very young’ stage in the observable Universe. Its 200 billion galaxies show a clear potential to continue on as we see them today for hundreds of billions of years, if not much longer. Because planets and life are so young in our Universe, says Harvard's Dimitar Sasselov, perhaps "the human species are not late comers to the party. We may be among the early ones."

Islamists Taking Over Egypt

There are at least two Islamic parties in Egypt: the more pragmatic Muslim Brotherhood and the Al-Nour Party. The Al-Nour Party is the party that is pushing for a stricter interpretation of Islam be enforced in the country. To them, democracy is subordinate to the Koran.

A spokesman, Yousseri Hamad, says, "In the land of Islam, I can't let people decide what is permissible or what is prohibited. It is God who gives the answers as to what is right and what is wrong".

Here we go... another mere mortal pretending to be speaking and acting for some supernatural deity. Individuals or groups of individuals who want to install their own set of rules justify it by saying that what they say and do are the words and actions of their god. This allows them to violate the rights of others the freedom to think, let alone the freedom to speak out and their childrens' right to be properly educated.

Pastor Youcef Nararkhani is a Christian Pastor awaiting execution in Iran. His apparent crime: Apostasy. He has an Islamic ancestry therefore, he must remain a Muslim. He was asked to recant his faith in Jesus Christ or die. He has been given opportunities to recant his faith and he refused.

Religions are supposed to be for the well-being of human beings, are they not? If the christian god and the muslim god are supposedly the same, do we suppose that that same god approve of this?

The discussion seems pretty petty doesn't it? If you strip away the fancy religious words like apostasy, recant and faith, we can boil this situation to it's basics, it pretty much goes like this:

  • A: Stop believing in Jesus, believe in what we believe.
  • B: No thanks. I like what I believe
  • A: We give you three chances to say yes
  • B: No. No. No.
  • A: Okay then, we kill you

How tragic. This to me, is yet again an example of the attrocities people inflict on each other because of their beliefs in their gods.

US agents have arrested 44 elected officials and Jewish rabbis in New Jersey in a huge anti-corruption sweep across the state. Charges of extortion, bribery, money laundering and human organ trafficking were stunning even for a state long notorious for official corruption and organised crime. (Source)

Book On Reason

The Tyranny Of God by Marquez Comelab - Book on Religion, Science, Reason, Faith, Atheism and Reasonism

The Tyranny Of God

NEW: Audiobook Version!

Listen to the Introduction and Preface

Paperback from Amazon

Is there a God? Where do the animals, plants and human beings come from? Are scriptures the words of gods? Does religion teach us to live moral lives? Why do so many people kill and are killed over it? How should we live our lives if God exists? How should we live it if God does NOT exist?

This book explores the truth behind our beliefs in God and the propensity of human beings to be religious. In an honest attempt to seek the answers to life's deepest questions, I probe into how life began. I then progress to investigate the true nature of religions and their impact on our lives and the rest of humanity.

The main purpose of this book is not to argue against religion. Rather, it tells our story and how we have come to oppress ourselves with the tyranny of our own beliefs. I wrote this book to include everything I discovered to be relevant in my search for the truth, not just the truth behind God and morality, but also behind us and our existence. Instead of reading this book with the expectation that it is trying to prove the tyranny of God, I would like to recommend you read it as a story book: as a book that tells the story of humanity from the Big Bang.


"While Comelab's writing is always moderate in tone, its message clearly undermines current distractions with accommodationist arguments towards presumed religious "moderates". It is written with the fresh confidence of a young man who has had early success in his adopted country and only recently come to realise the truth of atheism. For those like me whose only worry about Atheism has long been its faultering progress, Comelab reminds us that much of the energy must continue to come from those who have more recently learned the truth. He seems more than bright enough to soon progress to seeing atheism not as an end but as a starting point to the kind of understanding that should enable us to work towards a future incomparably better than any heaven the faithful can imagine."


Its beyond my imagination that you can put it all together in a book. Two thumbs up! You can not imagine what happen when I first read the title of your book, and got excited about it and kept reading until dawn. I commend you in putting so much effort to collecting data and put it together to support your idea. 

How can I say this... your book is really ME in here, existing to tell, spread, and contradict  but in very small area only (very limited, considering my country religion majority). Most of it can only be talked between my family member and close friends. Your book provides BEAUTIFUL BITTER TRUTH : that is how I would sum it up.

I called it beautiful because it opens up the very shell of a religions and the implications it caused over the past hundred, even thousands of years. I cannot describe with my limited english skill the insight your book has shown. But I am AFRAID your book WILL NEVER SPREAD TO MY COUNTRY. It will cause a massive attacks and chaos from the religious majority. I feel happy but the same time sad, really sad...Well again I cannot say THANK YOU ENOUGH.

- J. A. (Indonesia)

This book has taught me so much about evolution, the history of religions and the effect is has on our modern day society! The author shares his personal journey as a believer and provides much needed "food for thought". I recommend this book to all those who want to form their own opinion about believing or not believing.
