Nonsense?

Mao, Stalin and Pol Pot were committed atheists when they murdered millions.

1. Yes, they were atheists.
2. Yes, millions were murdered because of them.


Study logic.
Causation and Correlation...study and learn...ok?

And when someone says religion is equally just as harmful as drugs it really shows a lack of understanding of what those who professed no religion have done.

Not just as harmful as drugs...it is a drug..and the most harmful one.
Understand?

We don't need to 'believe' in the English language. It exists.
It has useful words with useful meanings.
You would be wise to start employing them.

1. I can find a few differences between Islam and Christianity but that doesn't mean one is a religion and the other isn't.

Cosmic,
Don't be dumb.
Look into the historical reliability of the New Testament before you sound off on things you know so very little about.

Wait...what?

How does your lack of knowledge and demonstrated ignorance of the English language and logical concepts equate to anyone else's awareness of the fantasy that is religion?

Yes, his last several comments have been extremely childish, slightly moreso than your own.

True Christianity (espoused by Jesus) accepted all people on an equal plain in coming to Him (all are sinners, all need to repent, believe in His resurrection and confess Him as Lord, etc). Therefore, true Christianity is not xenophobic.



You have to still embrace Jesus and follow his specific teachings leaving other forms out of the equation.

This makes the religion inherently xenophobic to other methods to achieve God (i.e. other prophets, yoga, skydiving and weed Laughing )

Firstly, there are merely "a few differences" between Humanism and Samkhya. The two employ completely different methodologies (especially with regards to what they consider valid evidence) to arrive at largely different conclusions.

Secondly, if we take the logic you are employing regarding Atheism and apply it to the two religions you just mentioned, Muslim terrorism reflects poorly on Christianity because they are both theistic. Is that your position? If not, reconsidering your fallacious logic.

From what I understand, Sankhya isn't a religion in itself, but a point of view within the Hindu religion. It traditionally admits the validity of the Vedanta, but restricts itself to cosmology, which is why it doesn't affirm the existence of Ishvara.

Rene Guenon wrote:
As for the reproach of atheism, this is what it amounts to: Sankhya is nirishvara, that is to say it does not introduce the conception of Ishvara or the Divine Personality; but, if this conception is absent from it, that is because it has no place there, given the point of view in question, any more than it has in Nyaya or Vaisheshika. The non-inclusion of something in a more or less specialized point of view only becomes denial when that point of view is declared to be exclusive, that is to say when it turns into a system, which is not the case here
