Bulgaria: Multiple Attacks in Paris Leave At Least 120 Dead Photo: EPA

At least 120 people were killed after multiple gun and bomb attacks took place in Paris on Friday night.

At least eighty people were killed at the Bataclan concert hall in central Paris, where gunmen had held hostages before being overpowered by security forces storming the building, the BBC reports.

Others were killed in an alleged suicide attack near the Stade de France where a friendly football match between the teams of France and Germany took place.

Other attacks took place in Le Petit Cambodge and Le Carillon restaurants in the tenth district of the French capital.

More than 100 rounds were reportedly fired at La Belle Equipe cafe in the 11th district.

France has declared a national state of emergency and closed its borders, with authorities asking residents of Paris to stay indoors and 1500 troops deployed across the city.

This is the second large-scale attack in the French capital this year after a shooting at the offices of the Charlie Hebdo magazine and subsequent attacks in January left twenty people dead and dozens of others injured.

According to media reports, four attackers have been killed by security forces.

Even after dwelling for some time on this news I’m at a loss for anything original, insightful or overly intelligent to write. It’s all been said and written before and nothing anyone can do regardless of race, creed, military power or intelligence will make a difference. This is religious fanaticism at its furthest extreme and Islamic Terrorism, Jihad mentality, hatred and unremitting conflict is here to stay – possibly for as long as it takes before most of the human race is subjected to the next world war – And all in the cause of religion, which, as you know, I detest as much as the people responsible for this, and all similar massacres of innocent people.

Of course Christians have their particular set of beliefs and the less I comment about this is almost certainly my best option. Nevertheless, they too number among the millions upon millions of similarly duped and, in my view, hopelessly naive individuals all across the globe who’ve been raised on conflicting unsubstantiated religious myths and fairy tales and their religion has been the direct cause, over time, of more death, torture, persecution, enslavery and genocide than all the Islamic and Muslim atrocities ever committed.

I’m appalled by all religions and believe they have been and will continue to be a curse on mankind.

As I write, Creationism is being taught to an ever increasing number of school children at their most impressionable ages. Take a look at this: http://www.theguardian.com/world/2002/feb/24/usa.schools

And here’s one of my foremost academic heroes, Richard Dawkins on this, (for me), alarming subject: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9FiHRVb_uE0
