I hesitated somewhat before doing another post on JWL. But these statements strike me as bizarre:
Osama Bin Laden was probably a good man; sincere, devout and God fearing. But all it takes to make good people do evil is religion. Keep that in mind. That is the lesson of his life. He was deluded in the same way as other believers. Some delusions cause more harm than others though, and he caused a great deal of it. The problem is he will never know he was deluded. Neither will any of the rest of them. What a waste of a life.
So all that is needed to make good people do evil is religion? So, is that how we explain Mother Teresa, Martin Luther King, and Mahatma Gandhi. Is that why they did so much evil? And how did Stalin manage to do so much harm, since he didn't suffer from and God delusion?
I realize how crazy Christians sometimes appear to atheists. But this looks to me like out-of-control atheist
I hope this doesn't touch off a new round of irrelevant Loftus-bashing.
