" Exorcise" the danger of faith-healing! As a religious ritual, faith-healing is constitutional, but as a form of medical help, the law should ban it. As the previous essay claims, it can lead to death.
Science finds it of no value.
As with any other form of religious experience, it reflects the activities of people's own minds: here the expectation for a miracle, false or misunderstood diagnosis, psychosomatic qualities, remissions and such.
This form of miracle has no evidence from any scriptures, just the imagination of mere people.

WLC deserves gargantuan sarcasm as to his resistance to the moral view that his Yahweh was indeed a moral monster who has no divine right to rule over us or to judge and condemn us! His resistance to the failure of his Kalam argument also merits sarcasm and his endorsement of uncorroborated writers of uncorroborated tall tales and bad ethics also commands sarcasm!
He is so overrated as a philosopher and - debater. He wins debates in the eyes of uncomprehending people, but we rationalists see through his flimsy arguments.
What else would you add to this? Or do you possibly dissent?

Original sin reflects original misanthropy of miserable mean-minded misanthropes who continually tried to make humanity look worse than it is . Most of us most of the time are good as Albert Ellis notes in " The Myth of Self-Esteem."
Those mendicants of misanthropy made up their history and their code of ecthics from their own miserable mean-mindedness and tastes and whims; not Yahweh, their fictional God who gave us morality.Humankind depends on no progressive code of ethics from God but instead from trial and error, refining their moral sense.
Judaism itself poses no original sin! Buddhism poses original ignorance as it were.
