1. I don't know who said it or what the exact original words were, but over the years I have enjoyed the saying that the definition of a "Religious War" is a war in which folks fight to the death over the question of whose imaginary friend is real and better and stronger and more powerful.

2. Along with this thought, I'd say, in reference to present-day Middle-East-centered conflicts, that people (on all sides) have been dying needlessly in The Crusades for roughly 1000 years, and that seems to be continuing. I think one can make the argument that The Crusades not only were never a valid activity, but are still continuing.

A friend remarked to me that the existence of Christianity itself... (its full irrational destructive evil force in the lives of humanity for so many centuries) is proof in itself that God does not exist. This strikes me as a thought-provoking quote from an atheist (which this person is). It is not a proof per se, but rather a way of making a point.

Most people are bothered by those passages of Scripture they do not understand, but the passages that bother me are those I do understand.

Every nut who kills people has a Bible lying around. If you're looking for violent rape imagery, the Bible's right there in your hotel room. If you just want to look up ways to screw people up, there it is, and you're justified because God told you to.

Die for a cause, religion is fear
Fear - the threat of something unreal
