SamSam VI Path of Kiaan Ressurection of true Iran Hoisting Drafsheh Kaviaan

It doesn,t cover all corners. Its not realy religion but a sense of tribal exclusivity that is the cause of such bloodshed. A disillusioned Pakistani fundamental(with no history to fall back on) kills because he wants to belong to an exclusive club in which he is acknowledged as special breed with unique identity. An Arab embraces Islam not as a religion but the backbone of his Arabo tribal national identity in which his image is personified to the world. An Indonesian, Malaysian....etc all . The same goes for a catholic croate vs an orthodox serb or catholic Irish vs protestant English in which artificial lines are drawn along exclusive tribal boundaries. when this happens a religion is much less of platform to communicate to God but a tool of Socio-racial hate.

Dear Sam, people's beliefs or spiritual understanding of the universe is not so much the topic of his argument (although one could argue further about that too). It is once irrational religious belief handed down by supreme leaders becomes source of legislation and social order that things take a frightening turn. As Iranians with our experience of the last three decades, we have first hand experience of this.

Mehraban Jaan,

I'm talking about the direct confrontational method he is employing to "educate" the religious faithful. The roots of the problem are not always religious beliefs. Racism, jingoism, expansionism, colonialism, etc. have all had their faithfuls.

How many people do in fact listen to what this guy has to say and how many does he antagonize through his approach. He does not seem to care when at some point he becomes very defensive when he is told to leave the premises of a church. He has lots of other options to choose from. I see his kind of "pretense" very demagoical.

Dear GR, of course anyone could take on any cause as one pleases. As a scientist, he takes on religion, as religion has historically and traditionally subverted and suppressed scientific thinking.

About his attitude I have to say that I am not one bit surprised that he is transparently irritated by the arrogance of the religious certitude of its dogma and as he so well puts it "without a shred of evidence".

He is the Don Quixote of atheism fighting an imaginary war against the religious faithful.

In my opinion he is to the contrary an enlightened individual arguing against mindless violence and ignorance...

"The process of non thinking called faith". If you had to distill the whole show to one sentence, this would be it.

Sorry, I had to replace part 1 with a longer version so that the program did not appear biased towards one religion or another.
