It is an unknown quantity whether historical factors, grievances and revenge without end in the Middle East will escalate in an out of control fashion involving the rest of the world. Atrocity upon atrocity is creating a human tragedy so vile in proportion that future generations can never escape the now exacerbated hatred of old. As the loathing increases in parallel with the wider availability of technological advances in warfare, at some stage there is the inevitable guarantee of the inclusion of super-weapons in the conflict.
The metaphorical oil lubricating the situation is the Abrahamic religions of Christianity, Islam and Judaism. These three imaginary god-states, all unevidenced and relying solely upon infant indoctrination, need recognition as a threat, not just to the region but also to the whole of humanity. The planet has enough real problems with, a looming energy crisis, global warming, overpopulation and failing eco-systems with which to contend.
David Nicholls, president of the AFA said; “The unnecessary addition of brainwashing children with the concept of imaginary beings is a burden no longer acceptable to a civilisation on the brink of annihilation. The cost of religious delusion may turn out to be more than the human race can pay.”
