The Negative Effects of Religion

As everyday unfolds and we see things happen all over the planet, here are examples of how the religious and superstitious beliefs interact with the world in negative ways.

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)

Losing my religion for equality

Written by
Jimmy Carter was president of the United States from 1977 to 1981. Now he has quit his religion because he finally saw one of the many faults about religion, specifically the Abrahamic Religions. They were created by men and as such, men continued to use religion to subvert women through the ages. Welcome to free thinking, Jimmy. You are finally seeing the light. (Source)

US church may bless gay unions

Written by

"THE US Episcopal Church, casting aside warnings about further alienating conservatives within its ranks and straining relations with fellow Anglicans worldwide, is deciding whether to sanction blessings for same-sex couples after lifting a de facto ban on the ordination of gay bishops."

COMMENT: So last month, the gods believe that gay unions are not okay and this month, after thousands of years, gay unions are okay? Did gods or angels come down from heaven and intervene? Did they email or call the High Priests to say that gay unions are now okay? This just proves that religious beliefs and dogma are dictated by mere human beings.

Private eyes dread a return to infidelity on camera

Written by

Prior to 1975, couples could only legally divorce if one party committed adultery, or if a member of the couple was cruel, a drunk, been imprisoned or insane. So, to divorce their spouse, many individuals hired private investigators and prostitutes to fulfill the legal criteria of committing adultery. Now, a prominent Liberal and Catholic, Tony Abbott, wants to turn back the clock because he thinks divorce is way too easy these days. (Source)

Priest jailed for molesting altar boy

Written by

Another priest is jailed for molesting a boy. (Source)

PERSONAL COMMENT: My comment may not necessarily be for this case but regarding pedophilia in general. What are the causes of pedophilia? Studies are still inconclusive it seems. It is unfortunate, however, for children and for the other priests, that pedophiles seemed to have figured out that becoming a priest provides them the opportunities they seek.

Some militants respond positively to Obama speech

Written by
It seems Obama's outreach is having the desired effect. It is a little harder for militant extremists who depend on demonising America and Americans to garner the support and commitment of recruits. In the meantime, Lebanon voted against Hezbollah.

'Where's God' cry as babies perish in fire

Written by
"At least 31 small children died, including many who were asphyxiated, after a fire raced through a day-care centre in the north-western Mexican border state of Sonora. 'Where's God? Where's God?' a police commander said as he came out of the centre in tears..." (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.

REVIEW

"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.
