I think God is as much a basic ingredient in the universe as neutrons and positrons. This is the prime force, when we look around the universe.
Intelligence is a symbiotic relationship between emotion and thought.
I condemn false prophets, I condemn the effort to take away the power of rational decision, to drain people of their free will -- and a hell of a lot of money in the bargain. Religions vary in their degree of idiocy, but I reject them all. For most people, religion is nothing more than a substitute for a malfunctioning brain.
