❝There is no god, and that’s the simple truth. If every trace of any single religion were wiped out and nothing were passed on, it would never be created exactly that way again. There might be some other nonsense in its place, but not that exact nonsense. If all of science were wiped out, it would still be true and someone would find a way to figure it all out again.❞
You know how religious extremists justify their wrongdoings claiming that they do these things in the name of god? That’s what this tweet was about.

So many theists thought this statement was unfair, although their replies were rather testy, and quite numerous. But according to their religion’s teachings, even when they are as little as unkind to anyone, regardless of their creed or lack thereof, they are committing sin.
So, dear theist, do you think I’m being unfair to you? Call me out in the comments.
People need to learn to discern “possibility” from “probability”. Almost anything is possible, but not probable – god falls into the latter category.
“If a man is offered a fact which goes against his instincts, he will scrutinize it closely, and unless the evidence is overwhelming, he will refuse to believe it. If, on the other hand, he is offered something which affords a reason for acting in accordance to his instincts, he will accept it even on the slightest evidence. The origin of myths is explained in this way.”
– Bertrand Russell
