Nietzsche lays it on the line . . .

"I call Christianity the one great curse, the one great intrinsic depravity, the one great instinct for revenge for which no expedient is sufficiently poisonous, secret, subterranean, petty -- I call it the one mortal blemish of mankind." ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

  1. I would almost agree but i'd have to substitute the word 'religion' for 'christianity' because it's all of these old superstitions that have caused, and still do cause, problems.

    But it's not all that - red-bloodied men have also done badly by those who are more battle-shy, are women or are younger. Sometimes greed and possessiveness have led men to act just as badly as those seized by religious zealousness.
