Just to clear things up: when I reference false belief systems / fable / myth, I make no direct reference to Christians, or the like, as somehow construed by yorkpowerlifter. How he could mistake that, I'm uncertain.
When I refer to false belief systems, I refer to all of them as a group, whatever their label. That is, belief systems that have no basis in fact. I.e., faith. Faith is not truth. Faith is faith. It's considered false, at least by most clear-thinking folks, until a preponderance of proof holds otherwise.
Whatever your deity (God, Satan, Einstein, Birds, Nature, Cows, a monk, a dictator, a Mormon prophet, money, canabis, snakes, or whatever the deity) and whatever leap of faith you've taken, unless it can hold up to scientific theory, I consider it a false belief system.
I can't generally see electricity, but, it's, of course, very real, and through a variety of scientific methods, and critical-thinking, I can prove it. The same can't be said for false belief systems (pick your flavor).
In general, false belief systems indoctrinate their believers from a very young age. When you ask them to say why their belief system is better than some other belief system they'll almost always contend "because it just is."
I'm not so sure that much of the perceived "bashing" stated by yorkpowerlifter, isn't so much an expression of "bashing" as it is that more folks are engaged in critical thinking, and logic. As you become more knowledgeable it's harder to buy off on these false belief systems. Clear-thinking / logical thinking leads down a completely different path.
As we grow more knowledgeable, we know these false belief systems are increasingly hard to defend with any coherence.
