Not in ANY way? I'm curious, are there any other great lies you think should
never be challenged, any other great evil?

That statement is quite simply ridicules. I am not stomping on anyone, I'm
just making what I believe is an objective statement when I say religious
ideas are asinine. They are perfectly free to call me asinine in return if
they wish.

Well Ok, I suppose you could say I stomped on them metaphorically,
but the trouble is all too often religious people stomp on people
with ideas like mine LITERALLY.

I am only an authority on this Extropian. At age 10 or so I started to have
serious doubts about the dogma of the particular religious franchise I was
brought up in, and by the age of 12 I had nothing but contempt for the very
idea of God. My contempt has only increased over the years.
