“I don't think there's any difference between the pope wearing a large hat and parading around with a smoking purse, and an African painting his face white and praying to a rock.”

    Thanks robb, I will heed your advice when the Atheists bow & kneel to God.

    There is one difference that Howard Stern seems to have missed…

    The African with the white face is at least praying to something that is actually there – He can see the rock, perhaps touch it too… The same cannot be said about a god…

    Atheros,

    Thats typical of an idolizer, allways needs something solid & can be seen. What about the blind & creature without eyes. Are they sidelined or have no say about the signs of God?

    While Howard Stern is an excellent entertainer, he should actually not be considered a bellwether of spiritual thought. In this case, however, he makes a point; modified, quite accurately by the comment of Atheros.

    The only reason that a person could not or would not understand the real similarity between Professor Dawkins and ANY other primate is because they simply choose NOT TO LEARN. If any honest citizen would take time to read “The Greatest Show On Earth” BY Professor Dawkins, they would find exactly how and why we are all made of the same “star stuff”. Indeed, we should be proud and happy to share a common ancestry with the other primates … or with the common slug, for all of us are a part of the beauty of the cosmos.

    Mr. Stern disgusts me, usually, but this quote is so true I chuckled about it all morning. Thanks for posting it.

    There are huge differences between the pope and the rock worshipper. All religions are based on ancient myths that helped our ancestors make sense of the world around them.
    The rock worshippers are usually harmless. Religions such as Catholicism and Islam are not. The religious leaders of these faiths manage to convince decent people to believe evil things. “Islam says homosexuality is bad – so I must believe it’s bad” – even though I’ve given it no thought.
    The leaders of these ‘super-religions’ are interested in power, money and finally faith. They often promise their followers a reward for thinking as they do. Life after death is the obvious example.

    The good news is that there are no new serious religions popping up. We no longer need them as science has provided answers backed up with real evidence.
    It won’t be the lack of congregation that kills religion off. It will be the lack of people will to preach the nonsense. We are starting to see this already in the UK.

    PEB, Scientology and Mormonism are pretty worrisome to me because they are so cultish, like Catholicism and Islam are. While both have been around a while, I believe a lot of folks in the US are unaware of how bat-shit crazy the members are. They believe in….

    Oh, wait, the Xians believe that there can be a primate birth without fertilization; that a primate can walk on water, that a primate can change the chemical composition of a fluid “by magic”. I guess in the long run, it’s no more bat-shit crazy than Xianism.

    BAT (shit-crazy – ya think?)

    Just like your name BAT shit-crazy

    The Atheists are only interested in destroying religion by fabricating lies upon religion to tarnish it as if its a bad thing. Atheists are actually bad people hiding in the face of good morals or fancy languages. Their souls are a terrible sight to view. One may run away in fear coming across it. They are indeed the agents of SATAN!!! Thers no truth in what they say.Whenever they come across Gods signs they quickly find a way to refute it. They will be condemn to HELL!!! This is Gods promise. They surely will.
