I just can't understand people. The clue is in the fucking name "faith"! It's not FACT.
The two are not mutually exclusive. A fact is true whether or not you believe it and whether or not you have evidence to prove it... if I have faith in something without scientific evidence I may or may not be right, not having evidence doesn't automatically mean I am wrong!
Those who are not religious seem to be better, more decent folk.
That's the exact opposite of what I see in my day to day life. It's a totally subjective position to take and entirely biased by the position you take on religion affecting how you perceive people. Plus of course which religious people you encounter... or rather people who you even realise are religious.
If religion is supposed to be the moral pinnacle, why do the religious nuts all want to kill?
What? None of the religious people I know want to kill anyone, even (especially) the creationist fundamentalists.
The reason "religious nuts" want to kill people is because they're nuts, not because they're religious... the answer is in the question.
