    Distinguishing “truth from illusion?” There is most certainly a madman ( apparently, a necessary resume requirement when applying for the position ) at the helm of this ship carrying 2.1 billion humans to their unreward. Your grandchildren will forever continue to be slaughtered in the name of a divinely-inspired doctrine, professed to be the word of God by ones such as the incumbent divinely-inspired asshole pretending to be in direct communication with, and thereby having a greater understanding of, the “facts”.

    Any,and all, comments made by “Benny the Rat” in regard to the human condition are specious. To you believers out there, we atheists/agnostics have no problem with respecting your need/desire to associate with whatever cult you deem fit, but this jackass allows for very little wriggling-room. Poor choice, Christians. You can do better.
