400 Men Cut Off Their Testicles to ‘Get Closer to God’

Posted by doctore0 on March 4, 2015

More on this madness/religion…

Indian religious “guru” Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh has been accused of persuading 400 of his estimated 50 million followers worldwide to cut off their own testicles to “bring them closer to God.” The incident took place in 2000 at a hospital run by the 47-year-old multi-millionaire spiritual leader in India, but has only recently come to light due to the victims’ fear of retribution from Ram Rahim’s followers, or fear of being made social outcasts if they came forward with their stories. We take a look at the investigation into the alleged manipulation, in this Lip News clip with Elliot Hill and Mark Sovel.

Americans are turning away from organized religion in record numbers

Posted by doctore0 on March 4, 2015


OrganizedReligionWith fire-breathing religion figuring anew in global conflicts, and political discussions at home often dominated by the nuttery of the Christian right, you might get the sense that somebody’s god is ready to mug you around every street corner. But if you’re the type who doesn’t like to hang your hat on organized religion, here’s a bit of good news: in America, your numbers are growing.

There are more religiously unaffiliated people in the U.S. today than ever before. Starting in the 1980s, a variety of polls using different methodologies have come to the same conclusion: people who do not identify with religious labels are on the rise, perhaps even doubling in that time frame.

Some call them “nones”: agnostics, atheists, deists, secular humanists, general humanists, and people who just don’t care to identify with any religious group. It’s not exactly correct to call them nonbelievers, because some still have faith and spirituality in some sense or another. A 2012 Pew study noted that 30 percent of these people believe in “God or universal spirit” and around 20 percent even pray every day. But according to the latest research, Americans checking the “none of the above” box will make up an increasingly important force in the country. Other groups, like born-again evangelicals, have grown more percentage-wise, but the nones have them beat in absolute numbers.

Durham Free School: ‘Creationism taught at’ free school facing closure

Posted by doctore0 on March 3, 2015


creationismPupils at Durham Free School were taught creationism during science lessons, according to newspaper Schools Week.

The school, which has already been ordered to close by the Education Secretary, Nicky Morgan, has been accused of harbouring “prejudiced views” of children from other faiths that went unchallenged by teachers.

A teacher at the school reportedly asked Year 7 pupils to complete a worksheet as part of their science homework that stated: “Only the Earth has life on it. God has designed the solar system so that the Earth can support life.”

Any school, academy or free school that is found to teach Creationism as a scientific fact would be in breach of the law and its funding agreement.

Inspectors from education standards watchdog Ofsted also said that they had found evidence of bullying, poor standards in the classroom and financial mismanagement at the free school in investigations last month.

Faith-Healing Leads To Dead Kids

Posted by doctore0 on March 1, 2015

”An Idaho Republican said a proposed ban on faith-healing could violate the religious rights of her constituents – many of whom eschew medical care for themselves and their families.

“They have a clear understanding of what the role of government should be – (and it) isn’t how to tell me how to live my life,” said state Rep. Christy Perry (R-Nampa).”
