I hate the idea of burning any book, but that judgement burns with such stupidity.

I want to just get a hold of a Bible, a Qu'ran, a Torah, Dianetics and the God Delusion, pile then in a braai, pour some propellant on it, and throw in a match. Video tape it, put it on YouTube, and see what happens.

Indeed, I'd like my "free" country back please. (as-if)

WHY do people care so much about the burning of some tree pulp and ink? You can burn bibles literally all day and not make a dent. There are BILLIONS of Bibles in the world. If I burn one, what is the problem? CO2 emissions getting xtians down all of a sudden?

SHOULD we burn books? No, of course not. But I won't stop you .... As long as you don't BAN books, I'm fine with it. As long as there are other copies still out there, preferably in digital form, then what is the harm? We could always just print more..... a futile exercise maybe, but not bannable. Books have a particular historical significance that seems to be all-too-often lost. I mean I think its great that people can still read "Mein Kampf" or the "Satanic Bible" whenever they please, we have not destroyed those and neither should we.

However if you own a copy and want to burn it, I don't think I have any business preventing you. The knowledge will surely not be "lost" to civilization.

This is a chance for agnostics and atheists to stop a holy war.

If someone would publicly burn all religious books as a protest against superstition it will get the religions mad at them instead of at each other.

I can't do it because I respect books too much and like to see evolution in action. Is there anyone on this forum who will pick up the torch and carry out this action and save the world?

>:D

I also have a problem burning books because it's a negative/destructive action, but hey if it can have a positive impact so be it! Include also books about all the woo...numerology; pyramidology et al

What, they actually banned it? The evil fuckers! Sorry Judge Sita Kolbe but you are now forcing us to burn them. We cannot now in good conscience refrain from burning religious books.
