Need One Unimpeachable Lesson Against Blind Faith? Here It Is. October 22, 2018

Everybody, but especially religious people, should read today’s disturbing post by Katie Paulson in her Without A Crystal Ball blog on Patheos: “Religious Vegan Parents Convicted in Starvation Death of Son.”

It illustrates, once again, the catastrophic potential dangers of believing in things that don’t exist — and, more to the point, organizing your lives in their service and inflicting their unsubstantiated dogmas on those you supposedly care about.

The Clarks were later convicted and face a maximum of life imprisonment at their sentencing in February.

Authorities originally charged that the toddler died from malnutrition and lack of timely medical care. Adventists don’t believe in physicians for healing, preferring prayer.
