Religion and the Internet, we need some regulation here

Crazy as it may seem in this day and age there are still people who believe that the world is flat. There is also a fair smattering of humanoids who believe that when Eve at that apple she messed it up for everyone. (That's Eve from the Bible, not Eve the R'nB star)

I came across this yesterday. Disturbing to say the least. Scroll down to "Reality" which sounds like it was written by some coked up, stained underpants wearing self abuser. The basic essence is that if you send your women children into the world, they will take drugs, have sex in dark damp places and make friends with the Devil on Facebook. Sidebar, would you really want to be poked by Satan? The writer, and the publisher promote a single sided argument and since I can't actually ask them if they're the product of growing up in a commune, I chose to blog it here.

A) Following the "logic" of your article, is it OK to send man children out into the world to have dark damp sex, take drugs and be friends with the Devil? Why? What if I want to stay at home and run a home industry?

B)The idea that a woman should be educated is not a foreign concept to Islam. But it is foreign concept to Eastern Countries where Patriarchy and religion are one in the same.

C) There are dangers everywhere. Should we then just live in communes? Cut our the outside world so that the family tree becomes a stick?

Technically this should be a digital blog. Because this is further proof of why the Internet needs to be regulated. Too many people have access and can spread cow dung through it. I am against the promotion of all religions using email newsletters. Only because people tend to forward it because they might think it useful. Yes if I have a daughter I would lock her in her room, have an open at the bottom of the door that could fit a bucket and a plate. Protect her from the "serpent" if you know what I mean.

The internet has become the carnival of the proverbial bearded lady and World's tallest midget and World's shortest giant types. People can passionately support a twitter account because ... I don't know.

Religion and the Internet does not go. What if I don't forward that bigoted email and my motherboard burns, does God work in mysterious ways? I think it encourages a shallow appreciation for religion. Anyway I am letting this serve as notice. All Rumi quoters, Chopra RT'ers and people who generally promote the Secret will henceforth be banned from my platforms.

God bless.

Amen

THe OH

You fascist, you

:P Hmmmm... and who gets to decide who's view is right on the internet? How do we decide exactly who to censor and who not too. It's a slippery slope. I'd much rather let natural selection do it's work on the internet. Let's make sure we keep an eye on what our kids are viewing. Adults however the more crazies we can hook up with one another and ship off to communes the better if you ask me.

Sad but true

Unfortunately the internet is taking over from the press in the sense of "if it's on the internet it must be true". This is borne out by the amount of dross I receive in my inbox from seemingly intelligent people who seem to believe every piece of rubbish that emanates from the web. The Nigerians are the masters at exploiting this and still catch loons with their improbable schemes. Sad but true.

Sensorship

Sensure is a very slippery slope and the can of worms it opens is to varied to even contemplate.

No Regulation

and no Censorship (ehem Jawellnofine...!!:p). The Internet should NOT be regulated, but rather free expression should be exercised, and when the religious fundi's start posting their nonsense, it is important that they are challenged, or questioned, or even ridiculed. Regulation is what has allowed them to subjugate their "followers" for centuries. I take great pleasure in tackling these introverted religious bigots (of every persuasion...). My thinking is that these people think like this anyway, and this is a great platform in which to challenge them. It would be impossible without the net. I am all for protecting the net for the citizens of the net (not customers), as Tim Berners-Lee (the inventor of the Web) has said.

Create thinkers

i read your article and have to say that my view is - let religious debate prevail. The one thing i have learnt is that religion, believe it or not, prompts thinking and prompts people to check things up (unless you truly are ignorant and are prepared to debate and either debunk everything or believe everything one says). I am muslim and i have to say that i love posting things that prompt a little äggressive" debate, because whether right or wrong", or whether it makes sense or not, people are passionate about religion and in some cases politics. When passionate about anything, it usually means that you have a little knowledge otherwise you wouldnt be discussing it or raising something to talk about. Yes, there are those who are so stubborn that despite the proof given either for or against what they are talking about, they will continue punting a point. That is when i give up because it is like debating with a brick wall (although a brick wall has more use). For the rest, good, energetic, solid and vigorous debate is great. Let it happen. It makes for reading up (not many people do that any more), quick research, fact finding, etc and this is good if you want to create a thinking environment.
