    The exact same applies to those religious texts you mentioned.

    That's a really sad view you have there. I have lots of friends who are amazingly intelligent and really enjoy the Twilight books. Everyone has different tastes in reading material, and just because somebody doesn't want to read books that they will learn something from it doesn't give you or anyone else the right to assume that they aren't intelligent. Why don't you go read a book that will help you open your eyes and realise that arrogance is a highly unattractive quality?
    lol at taking things so seriously.

    I was joking...

    Then again, Marx doesn't demand upon pain of eternal torture that you obey his ideology.

    Religious texts demand you believe something primitive and absurd, and obviously there are some in the world who will take them literally and commit abhorrent acts, because the book tells them to do so. I would call that pretty dumb.

    Why are people putting the Bible down? I don't get how that will make you dumber.

    Surely dumbness is due to a lack of understanding of whats out there. The Bible gives a big idea about what is out there. Understand it, but don't disrespect it.

    Dumb book would be things like Katie Price, Keri Katona etc.

    I get it, it's because they're popular right? It's just like in high school, you don't want to watch/read what others are because you want to stand out in the crowd.

    Who has even read the Bible?

    Anything by Dan Brown.
    Eyyy!! The latest Dan Brown actually changed my life!!!

    If you want something to make you dumber nothing will ever beat one of Katie Price's 40 Autobiographys...

    And this thread title seems familiar :p:

    Unfortunately Katie price only wrote 2 books for you to choose
    Very unlikely she actually wrote them. Even intelligent celebrities tend to employ ghost writers, let alone Jordan! Actually, she's not as thick as she pretends to be, but still.

    You're allowed a holiday from your usual religion-bashing you know :rolleyes: A lot of the stuff you say is the same stuff that nearly all atheists here have considered

    Your point? If you don't like what i say then there is a tiny red x to click up in the top right of your screen. :yy:

    True her ghost writer for her Angel series is Rebecca Farnworth.

    She even admits she just dictates what she wants in the books to the writer.

    No, it was suggested that people who read Twilight are made 'dumber'. It's just a ridiculous thing to say! A book cannot make anyone less intelligent!
    You'd be surprised.
    I came out the other end of the dark empty vacuum that was "Breaking Dawn" feeling my braincells physically pained.

    Scientology books also. Don't turn unrelated threads into discussion about religion. Nearly everyone on here is an atheist. We get it. You can all use the same arguments and points that we can.

    Explain to me exactly how my posts were unrelated.


    So you want anyone who disagrees with you to stop reading the thread? Some good logic there... and of course I'm sure TSR would be much more fun if everyone stuck to that rule.

    If you get so upset and angry over an opinion posted in a thread asking for opinions then i think it would be best you left the internet for a while and maybe ventured outside. Internet business shouldn't be this serious. :toofunny:
