Differences in Faith

The biggest problem in the conflict between people of different faiths, and between theists and atheists, is that very often they ignorantly make hasty generalisations about the others based on the worst examples they see in the opposite camp.

Some people see the planes crashing into World Trade Centre and go, "Oh crap, Islam is the terrorist religion".

Some people see overzealous Christian evangelists and go, "Oh shit, bloody annoying Christians!"

Some people see snobbish atheists and go, "Oh despicable people feeling proud about having no purpose in life."

What the hell, I go. Sometimes I feel that critical thinking skill is as important as, if not more important than faiths.
