    I was thinking about making an app that “cured” people of religious belief – after all that isn’t natural, often it isn’t even a choice but the result of early indoctrination, it’s highly destructive both to the person believing (because it’s all lies) and because it causes them to harm others. A detailed analysis of all the false sayings, along with how religion has been wrong on slavery, wrong on womens’ rights, falsely claimed Raptures were coming when they didn’t, all the stupid sayings over the centuries (got a hell of a selection from the last few years, with videos/audio), and definite proof there is no God.

    How will this go down?

    1. Do you have the skills to do that Gulliver?

      I think there might be quite a high demand for such a thing. There must be a lot of people who were subjected to religious propaganda as children and who would appreciate help to escape it’s negative influence in a convenient app they could download to de-programme themselves. An app like that is possibly too reactionary though so I’m inclined more to the positive leading edge exploration being done by HeartMath.

    I complained to Google last week…
    One has to wonder how long an investigation really takes?

    1. I guess for as long as Google have it on their Play site and people are purchasing it, Google will of course be getting a share of those sales. So they would probably like to have it on for as long as possible.

  3. Google should be ashamed of themselves for taking so long to remove this app.

    There is boundless proof that this so called therapy is baseless and unfounded and will actually do more harm than good.

    But as I have said, Google will be receiving some of the money made from the sale of this app and despite the negative media attention, people will still but it so why would they be in any rush to remove it. All this is going to do is damage Google’s reputation.
