Addition to the theism is irrational essay..
Seems the essay is locked due to it being so old, but I got a small response to it. Here is link to the essay
One reason why theism is irrational is that belief in any higher power is usually rooted in fear of punishment.
The definition of fear- a distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, pain, etc., whether the threat is real or imagined; the feeling or condition of being afraid. Which is an emotion that causes a person to make VERY VERY irrational desisions. Any decision based off fear is therefore irrational. Making any decision based off a theistic rule set, irrational.
The bible, good fiction? A 3 year old can write a better story.
