Pet Peeve

4 Apr

My pet peeve is self-righteous slogans like this one. And shame on them because a foundation for reason should avoid such obvious logical fallacies.

Because evil has never been done in the name of Science, or scientific progress.

Oops! except for a million times over. Try googling Doctor Mengele and Dr. Sigmund Rascher, The Tuskegee Study, Unethical Experiments done in the United States, or Top Ten Mad Scientists for a scratch at the surface.

Not to mention the fact that the 9/11 attack wasn’t really about religion at all. The media says jihad and Bin Laden may have said jihad to the pilots, but here is the real reason it happened: anger over US foreign policy

Religion doesn’t kill people. people kill people.

    This is pretty awesome. You know how we know Bin Laden attacked for the reason you listed above? Because he told us so. People are so eager to forget the truth, so they can replace it with opinions.
