“It’s fine to be a religion man. But if you get too much of the religion, you get out of your mind and do stupid things.”

    I’m not sure what the quote meant by religion man.But there is never too much of a real good thing.Sound doctrine will never make you do stupid things.

    Too much of anything is bad for you.

  3. Dan Says:

    Tech, there’s no such thing as sound doctrine. Dogma, or doctrine, is never good enough to be called “sound,” and should always be questioned. Taking doctrine unquestioningly on faith is the basis for many otherwise good men and women to do very evil things throughout history.

    This first thing I thought about was people who let their kids suffer and die from treatable diseases because they believe prayer will heal them or it some gods plan. Why not decide that modern medicine is part of some gods plan. There have been several cases in the news in the past few years. So sad.

  5. Kaptain Says:

    Tech, that should be comforting news to the 2000+ people who died in the twin towers. I’m sure those religious nuts thought their doctrine was sound too. Wake up Tech, do you think what they did was stupid? Do you really think your religion is any different. If so, check it’s history.

    F.Y.I. to all participants….

    there is an interesting site on “Twitter” called “atheistqotd” (all one word)

    it is not a forum , like this site, but rather a collection of quotes about
    atheism…from various sources.

    type in Twitter Atheistqotd ” for a look.

    @Tech Obviously you forgot about the story of the woman who overdosed on water and died all for a radio contest. Or, how about all those fat people with their clogged arteries from eating too much garbage junk foods?

    It’s not the fact they get too much religion, it’s the fact they get too little and just fill in the blanks with their own personal false assumptions.
