Denmark and Sweden
And Germany has a tradition similar to France of being highly academic, philosphical, and rather anti-religion in the schools and all. Clearly, that caused hitler, which is clear proof how much society needs religion!
I'm on to something here. wonder how much I can make publishing a book.
Well, there is a new book coming out about Fast and Furious being a liberal conspiracy theory (I'm dead serious) to somehow make the country more "pro gun control". the NRA is up in arms about this, demanding to see Holder's papers, to prove that it's a conspiracy.
I was talking to some people in the facebook "conspiracy theorists say the darnedest things", adn they AGREED it was likely a conspiracy.... sighs.... people really do turn off their so called analytical skills when their political party is involved, don't they. (me too. I think obama is teh best, and won't let anyone say otherwise. heh)
You can make a packet of money if you know how to write scary stuff with good academic words included so it reads professional. Pseudoscience sells very well.
Warning RationalWiki will write an article about that book and your readers won't like that article.
So, apparently, do both "anti religion" and "anti atheism" books. :-)
seems everyone is all too happy to point fingers, and far less people want to look at a more rational, reasonable, balanced view of "the Other" or simply the world's problems.
Some people care a great deal about religion because they are devout believers. Other people are anti-religious because religious people have hurt them or have hurt friends, family in the name of religion. What proportion of those who hate religion have been hurt that way I don't know.
of those who *Hate* religion? probably quite a few. Most grownups who have simply come to the idea that religion isn't right for them, and that there is no god, have no need to *hate* religion. They don't tend to say things like "all religion is bad", or work to stop religion. they don't actual proselytize.
