Christianity is Not the Only Casualty of the Internet

Deconverted MuslimYou know, most Muslims and Christians hardly read any religious materials. If they did, they’ll figure out there are so many problems with their religion. Luckily, the internet is educating people and a lot of people are finding out the truth. I guess the internet not only killed Blockbuster and other brick and mortar stores, it’s also killing religion.

Deconverted Ultra-Orthodox Jew:   In May 2012, tens of thousands of ultra-Orthodox Jews gathered for a mass rally at New York’s Citi Field stadium to protest the “evils of the Internet and the damages caused by advanced electronic devices.” The Internet has torn apart families, said a letter published in the Haredi press ahead of the event. “It all happens because of [the Internet], and something must be done so they won’t be hurt.”  The story of Shulem Deen, author of the new memoir “All Who Go Do Not Return,” is exactly the kind of thing the rally’s organizers feared. A former Hasidic Jew, Deen lost his faith through a years-long process of increasingly questioning his belief system, with radio, television and the Internet playing a starring role in the process.

  1. Yes, logic and reasoning and manners and conversation have all been casualties of the internet.

    Look at the rise of the anti-vaxxer movement and flat earthers. This is thanks to the internet.

    If people were better at reasoning and critical thinking, we would see an increase in belief in God, and Christianity in particular.

    But with the decline of being able to sift through fact from fiction, we see fewer people embracing the truth of Christianity and more people embracing the untenable position of atheism, and other notions, like those mentioned above: flat earth and anti-vaxxer.

      This is like saying by using reason and critical thinking more people would come to realise that Santa Claus is real.
      What an arse-backward thing to say.
      Look kiddies, this is what the power of religious indoctrination does to people – turn their thinking skills to jello.
