As to the threat dire consequences for responding frankly to the original question...why stir up trouble?
Your answers to the OP indicate you are opposed to religion of any sort, and leave absolutely no doubt about that due to the horrid consequences you gave of a religious state.
This raises the question of why you are in the religious discussions at all, and that is the question I posed.
Let me give you a simile;
Let us suppose that a member posted in the handgun section asking for opinions of the S&W Model 29.
So, a James Brady type registers here, goes to that thread, and TRASHES this weapon based on their opinion that NO ONE should own a handgun at all.
Would their opinion be of ANY help WRT the OP?
Does that make it clearer to you?
IOW, those that have atheistic beliefs, OPPOSED to religion of any sort, need to stay out of the religious area here.
