RE: Media
When I was a teen I rejected Christianity. I had read the Old and New Testament and that sealed Christ's fate in my life. Damned books. In my early twenties I was dabbling in eastern new age religion. I was initiating into a Sufi order. Of course , for all of it's inclusiveness Sufism is still Islamic. I read Yusef Ali's translation (the one Harris likes). That damned book sealed god's fate in my life for good. The Koran is a bloody horror show.
 
"Each nation has created a god, and the god has always resembled his creators. He hated and loved what they hated and loved, and he was invariably found on the side of those in power. Each god was intensely patriotic, and detested all nations but his own. All these gods demanded praise, flattery, and worship. Most of them were pleased with sacrifice, and the smell of innocent blood has ever been considered a divine perfume. All these gods have insisted upon having a vast number of priests, and the priests have always insisted upon being supported by the people, and the principal business of these priests has been to boast about their god, and to insist that he could easily vanquish all the other gods put together." Ingersoll
