While some pray for the victims of the Bastille Day massacre in Nice, others celebrate the destruction as an answer to their prayers.Prayers are the consequence of irrational beliefs, and it is irrational beliefs that allow people to do irrational things, like kill and maim hundreds of innocents in the name of a God that does not exist.
Our world is fast succumbing to the activities of men and women who would stake the future of our species on beliefs that should not survive an elementary school education.
As a man believes, so he will act. Believe that you will be rewarded with an eternity of unimaginable delights by dealing death to infidels, and you will act. God is the most potent source of human conflict, past and present. We must finally recognize the price we are paying to maintain the iconography of our ignorance.
