The results of superstition....

Religion promotes superstitious thinking with the believer linking anything bad that might happen either with the victims lack of or misguided faith or as the vengeance of his deity. Anything bad that happens to himself is simply a test of his faith. The good is a sign of his wonderful god, the bad a test of his faith. The bad that happens to someone else is punishment.... Circular reasoning abounds and the real reasons for things are irrelevant. Take this story for example. Pat Robertson demonstrates his ignorance by blaming Ariel Sharon's current health problems as divine punishment for "dividing God's land." If Robertsons god is so trivial that he would stoop to revenge, It's no wonder that I don't want anything to do with his religion. It's too bad most of Robertson's followers are so blind to his ignorance and hypocrisy.

  • If God is as big and powerful as Robertson says, they couldn't God take care of this himself?

    I wouldn't go so far as placing religion along side superstition but comparing the size of one god or another is silly.

  • Yes, if Robertsons god is as powerful as he claims, but then I suppose we could blame anyones demise or misfortune on his outs with Robertsons deity. That, in my opinion is a form of superstition.

    I presume your comments about comparing the size of one god or another is silly is an accusation against Mr. Robertson. I would agree with that assesment.
