Games "For nearly thirty years we've been having this discussion, asking the question: do violent movies, music or video games make people violent? Well according to Brad Bushman and Craig Anderson of Iowa State University, yes. Based on the results of their research they concluded in 2001 that video games and violent media can make people aggressive and violent. Based upon their data and their conclusions, however, it's safe to say that photos of snakes, crispy bacon, or a particularly rigorous game of chess can also make people aggressive and violent." And politicians?

The three Abrahamic religions have been a cancer on our civilization for centuries. Actually read your Bible, take it off the coffee table.

Outside the scope of discussing the violence in it (unless of course you're talking about adult men of a working age who're of the same faith as eachother, no violence there, only love, but not too much love, because that's bad! Stone those guys!), engage in a little comparative reading. Compare it to our knowledge of Mesopotamian religious texts. A lot of the Old Testament is pretty much taken straight from there. Then there's all the Celtic and Roman beliefs that worked their way in. There's barely an original thought in the Christian Bible.
