Amen...well put.

Regarding the tribalism of religious culture and unfortunately culture in general; I see the " you should be like me" pathology everywhere with humans. It is completely natural for other humans to push people into behaving and believing as they do...if those evangelizing choose to live an unexamined, subjective life. It was ironic to me as a young kid listening to my friends evangelise about weed. They sounded so earnest and confident in their understanding--just like a lot of "the faithful". They were so sure that i should be like them and do the same things that they do. Know what i mean? Even to the point of completely alienating anyone who refused to go along.
I think, until we as a species start wanting knowledge with the intensity that we want life after death, or even air; our progress as a species toward enlightenment and what peace we can achieve will be glacially slow.

I'd really like to pay humanity a visit in about 300 years and see how things have changed, or as some think-- if they have changed at all. Unfortunately, this isn't possible with our current technology. What a shame.

It is a common mistake to view atheism as an alternative TO religion and spirituality rather than an alternative FORM of religion and spirituality.  It is not "religion" that should be the focus in this discussion but rather moral orders.  Religion and spirituality are manifestations of moral orders as inherent features of societies.  Religion and spirituality as we understand them today can disappear; it is moral orders that will last as long as societies last.  Every society requires ideas about right and wrong, good and bad.  Religions are just one way to symbolize and organize moral orders.  They can also be symbolized and organized through politics (see for example Michael Harrington's The Politics at God's Funeral, 1983), and even fitness (for a biographical example of this see the life of Jack LaLanne).

Really want to get a GREAT NIGHT SLEEP???
Make the ass hole sleep in the shed... LOL LOL
When we had to move last summer after 61/2 years in the same place... We have a wolf hybrid, she was dumped on me and I didn't want another dog as my now XXX {thank GOD} already had 3 dog's...
That was 12 year's ago... I LOVE that brat more then my children, LOL
Really, it's damn close...
There is no way in hell I would ever even think of getting rid of her... 
My son rescued her from the most horrendous living condition...

We find a house that will let us have a dog... As landlord is showing us around, we go outside to see the shed that's part of it... Landlord look's like if he cracked a smile, his face would break... LOL

He open's the shed and me being me, 
always with the shit that just fall's out of my mouth, 4 REAL, I turn and look at my husband and say,

OOOH LOOK, THERE IS EVEN A HOUSE FOR YOU!!!
Landlord about died, see he CAN LAUGH!!!  LOL LOL LOL

Yet to follow the link, this picture, without words is a good visual showing the busyness and the overwhelming amount of information and just stuff we are exposed to every day. Some how we must learn to filter the mass, in order to think straight.
It is not difficult today; to understand or relate to people who cannot cope, or "burn out" or have anxiety problems.
