The first thread I created at "Reddit - Debate a Christian". Will this get past the censorship? It has not been approved yet. They have a lot of ridiculous rules so this will probably not get published even though Christian scum need to read it.

I don't understand why religious people think faith is a virtue.

I remember my Catholic school religious indoctrination more than a half century ago. The nuns repeatedly said "You must have faith". In other words we must believe in stuff that has zero evidence. When I grew up I realized how ridiculous this brainwashing was.

Interesting quote from a University of Minnesota biologist about faith:

"No one word personifies the absolute worst and most wicked properties of religion better than that. Faith is mind-rot. It’s the poison that destroys critical thinking, undermines evidence, and leads people into lives dedicated to absurdity. It’s a parasite regarded as a virtue."
-- PZ Myers
