We have been human for almost 800 to 1000 K years.  We did not have to invent a big bad God until we invented Kings.  Big religion is a gravy train for lazy people and people who want to control you.  See the evil Pastor below - 10,000 years now of people like him.

Comment by Doone on June 29, 2019 at 10:33am

As well as showing god came last, these figures also give an idea for the time scale involved; with it taking ~1,000 years of increasing social complexity before a moralising god shows up4.

In written records, this first appears ~5,000 years ago in Ancient Egypt4. However, earlier evidence for social complexity, like the early farmers, show there are likely earlier examples of prehistoric vengeful gods. This potentially stretches back to Göbekli Tepe 12,500 years ago.

Which might sound impressively ancient from our point of view, but is relatively young for our species. Those first gods would be much closer to us than the first cave art....

That pastor is awful, it usually seems those who are anti human are also anti morals.

A Pastor Who Wanted Women Executed for Abortions Was Arrested for Raping a Child

A couple of months ago, Texas was considering a ban on abortions that would have subjected women — not just doctors — to the death penalty. Because that’s what it means to be “pro-life” in Texas.
A Republican state legislator, Jeff Leach, said he couldn’t support the “Abolition of Abortion in Texas Act” because he felt only doctors should be punished, and the bill eventually died. Jack Graham, the pastor of a Houston megachurch, even praised Leach (who happened to be a member of his congregation) for his “courageous” decision.
But that exchange infuriated Stephen Bratton, the pastor at Grace Family Baptist Church, who had publicly testified in defense of the bill. He soon penned a lengthy rebuke of Graham for supporting a man who had prevented the passage of an anti-abortion bill — in a red state, no less — and for allowing supposed “murder” to continue unabated.
… You have used the power of the pulpit and your influence as one who is supposed to speak for the LORD to effectively endorse the murder of another 55,000 children in Texas in the next year and 110,000 over the coming two years before our legislature meets again.

Because you are not ignorant of the Word of God, you are held more accountable for your actions. You have been given much influence through the pulpit and your leadership in the Southern Baptist Convention. Much will be required from you as you stand before the Lord. Your endorsement of the shelving of HB 896 is essentially authorizing the deaths of approximately 110,000 pre-born children in this State, and you will be held accountable before God for those deaths.

Because you have endorsed this position, you have removed justice from the equation thereby giving sinful men and women no reason to discontinue the act of murder.
See, everyone? Unlike Graham, Bratton cared about children — pre-born and presumably otherwise. As a pastor, he understood the influence he had. He also understood the importance of moral integrity because he would one day stand before the Lord.


In hindsight, that was quite a statement coming from Bratton, because a month after he wrote that public denunciation against Graham, he confessed to his fellow church leaders that he had repeatedly raped an underage relative.

No wonder he wanted to protect the unborn. In a few years, they could become his victims.
The pastors at his church immediately told law enforcement, and on Friday, Bratton, the father of seven, was arrested.
Bratton is accused of abusing the child from 2013 to 2015 with inappropriate touching that escalated to “sexual intercourse multiple times a day or several times a week,” [Senior Deputy Thomas] Gilliland said.
There are no other known victims, according to church leaders.

It's almost as if he is claiming that certain books are forced on these poor little Christian children. What a piece of shit this man is.

Oh, whatever next!!! We were always encouraged to use the libraries as much as possible, & that's where I did my best learning!

Man who thinks the earth is 6,000-years-old: ‘Libraries are becoming dangerous places for kids’

Creationist Ken Ham, who is well known for establishing the Ark Encounter museum in Kentucky, told his followers on Twitter earlier this week not to let their kids go to libraries.
Ham believes these bastions of learning are dangerous because they dare to have books on their shelves that have LGBTQ characters represented, including in children’s books.
In a series of two tweets, Ham stated that “public libraries are becoming dangerous places for kids (of all ages).” He went on, describing other dangerous places that Christian children have been subjected to.
“And sadly, the majority of kids from church homes have already had their hearts & minds captured by the enemy through public schools, TV etc.,” he wrote.
Ham concluded his remarks by including a link to an article entitled “A mess on our shelves,” which criticizes libraries for “enthusiastically joining the LGBTQ crusade.”

Doone, decades have passed since I learned that survey results depend heavily on how the questions are phrased and asked. I won’t take this PRRI survey seriously until I see its questions and hear how they were asked.

Further, has anyone surveyed people who OWN businesses and depend on their businesses being profitable?

Or who, like my dad, did not talk politics with his store’s customers? He would have refused to identify his party affiliation to a survey. He never told me.

Comment by Doone on June 26, 2019 at 8:38am

From Kevin Drum, Republicans would not serve gays, atheists or Muslims

I’m never quite sure how seriously to take survey results, and today Paul Waldman points to a new PRRI survey that I really, really don’t want to take seriously. Here it is:


Thanks to a baker in Colorado, we’re all accustomed to the idea that conservatives think business owners should be free to refuse service to gay people if their refusal is based on religious belief. But apparently large numbers of them also think it’s fine to refuse service to Muslims, Jews, and African Americans.

If it’s religiously based, of course.

As it happens, there are a disturbingly large number of Democrats who also think this kind of discrimination is OK. But there’s an odd difference. Among Democrats, there’s apparently a single, smallish contingent—around 14-19 percent of the total—that thinks it’s OK to discriminate against anyone. But among Republicans, it varies. About 18 percent think it’s OK to discriminate against blacks compared to 47 percent who think it’s OK to discriminate against gay people. Jews and Muslims and atheists are in the middle. This suggests that, for whatever reason, there’s a liberal bloc that, on principle, thinks businesses should be allowed to discriminate however they want. Conservatives, by contrast, don’t think that. They endorse discrimination more or less strongly depending on how much they dislike the group in question.

So to circle back to the beginning, I wonder how seriously to take this? Obviously the Colorado baker case has gotten everyone’s attention, which is why the numbers supporting discrimination have gone up over the past five years. But does this also mean that this is, like so many other things, basically just a tribal question these days? That is, your answer is less about discrimination itself, and more about simply having the view associated with your side? I hope so. But I fear it might not be.
