I'm an Australian psychologist, and have worked for many years as a clinician. I have seen so many clients whose lives have been screwed up by the religious lunacy thrust upon them as children. In Australia, our prime minister and opposition leader are both "men of faith" ... it saddens and angers me that such apparently intelligent people can believe in such patently ridiculous concepts as hell, adam & eve, noah's ark, virgin birth etc .... and then want to continue to "teach' the sinister garbage in schools
It's wonderful to see forums such as this gaining momentum, as well as publications from authors such as Dawkins and Hitchens doing so well. Perhaps our species is finally evolving past its need for bronze age dogma.
