Talmud and Torah, Bible and New Testament, Koran and Hadith offer insufficient grounds|
"I have now a book backlog that needs to be synthesized so that the external gates and walls of religious institutions can be battered down, and their prisoners freed to the direct, inner and personal experience of the Divine and the Resurrection. The religious institutions, masses and fanatics must be challenged to defend the indefensible (graves opening up and skeletons becoming alive, 4000-year-old earth etc.) and flee the multi-pronged charge against their most prized, sacred, protected—albeit utterly false and misunderstood—bastion (Eschatology of the Last Judgment)! They must be confronted to embrace the most ridiculous, and defy/deny their most revered faith i.e., the Great News and Sure Signs of the Resurrection, the heart and soul of their religion.
In Defense of Atheism: The Case Against Christianity, Judaism and Islam is one gigantic battering ram, a most welcome means to accelerate that process. The religious elite should begin to realize that the sun is now setting on their evening empires which are crumbling into sand, and from those ruins is breaking the Dawn of the Divine Feminine that will awaken the human race from their long spiritual slumber." - jagbir singh
Talmud and Torah, Bible and New Testament, Koran and Hadith offer insufficient grounds for the philosopher to choose between Jewish, Christian or Muslim misogyny.
"While September 11, 2001, as seen by the United States and therefore by the West, calls upon everyone to choose sides in the religious war that supposedly pits Judeo-Christianity against Islam, we might prefer to avoid choosing either side and opt instead for a Nietzschean position. That position would be neither Judeo-Christian nor Muslim, for the very good reason that these belligerents are continuing the religious war that began with the Torah bidding the Jews to do battle with their enemies. The book of Numbers, chapter 21, verse 14, refers to the "book of the wars of the Lord." The justification for bloody battle against one's enemies is an important part of the Torah. And the Koran is infused with recurrent variations on the same theme: slaughter of the enemy. In other words, nearly twenty-five centuries of calls by both sides to acts of crime! Nietzsche's lesson: we can choose not to choose. And a decision not to side with Israel and the United States does not automatically mean that one is a fellow traveler of the Taliban.
Talmud and Torah, Bible and New Testament, Koran and Hadith offer insufficient grounds for the philosopher to choose between Jewish, Christian or Muslim misogyny. Or to opt against pork and alcohol but in favor of the veil or the burka, to attend the synagogue, the temple, the church, or the mosque, all places where intelligence is ailing and where, for centuries, the faithful have practiced obedience to dogma and submission to the Law—and therefore obedience and submission to those who claim to be the elect, the envoys, and the word of God...
Thirty centuries, from the earliest texts of the Old testament to the present day, teach us that the assertion of one God, violent, jealous, quarrelsome, intolerant, and bellicose, has generated more hate, bloodshed, deaths, and brutality than it has peace ... There is the Jewish fantasy of a chosen people, which vindicates colonialism, expropriation, hatred, animosity between peoples, and finally an authoritarian and armed theocracy ... There is the Christian image of the Temple moneylenders, or of a Pauline Jesus claiming to have come bearing a sword. This justifies the Crusades, the Inquisition, the French Religious Wars, the Saint Bartholomew's Day massacre of Paris's Protestants, the stake, the Index, but also worldwide colonialism, North American ethnocides, support for twentieth century fascists movements, and the centuries-long temporal hold of the Vatican over the smallest detail of daily life ... And there is the clear exhortation on almost every page of the Koran to destroy unbelievers—but also the Jews and Christians of the book—their religion, their culture, their civilization, all in the name of a merciful God! So many pathways to entrench the idea that precisely because of God's existence everything is permitted—in him, through him, and in his name, without the slightest objection by believers, clergy, the masses, or the ruling spheres.
If the existence of God, independently of its Jewish, Christian, or Muslim form, had given us at least a little forewarning against hatred, lies, murder, rape, pillage, immorality, embezzlement, perjury, violence, contempt, swindling, false witness, depravity, pedophilia, infanticide, drunkenness, and perversion, we might not have seen atheists (since they are intrinsically creatures of vice) but rabbis, priests, imams, and with them their faithful, all their faithful (which amounts to a great many) doing good, excelling in virtue, setting an example, and proving to the godless and perverse that morality is on their side. Let their flocks scrupulously respect the Commandments and obey the dictates of the relevant suras, and thus neither lie nor pillage, neither rob nor rape, neither bear false witness nor murder—and still less plot terrorist attacks in Manhattan, launch punitive raids into the Gaza strip, or cover up the deeds of their pedophile priests. Then we would see the faithful converting their neighbors right, left, and center through the example of their shining conduct.
