The word ΔΑΙΜΟΝΑΣ ("daimonas") is the word demon. It is a Greek word and is pronounced "demonas". The Greeks of antiquity worshiped not only the gods of the heavens but also disembodied deifications of abstractions, what we today might call "spirits". "Right" and "Wrong", were no mere abstract concepts but δαίμονες daimones, demons; spirits, with divine power. Christianity condemned the religion of the Greeks as an unholy evil pursuit...[ read COMPLETE INTRODUCTION]

FOR BEING ATHEIST 1/1/2015
The Koran, Old Testament and New Testament were quoted, as was Mein Kampf. The genocide committed by Hitler was shown to have been undertaken because Hitler followed the actions called for in Dueteronomy, the Bible (as I have written about in the past). The owner of that gallery proclaimed that it is "racist" to criticise Islam, and sued for defamation because I (and co-exhibitor) Lee-Anne Raymond, wrote about it. The matter went to court in March 2014 and in June 2014 the judge, Greek-born Emilios Kyrou, found that it could indeed be described as "racist" to critically quote the Koran because Muslims are "oppressed by Jews".
Atheism has nothing to do with support of Israel or Jews. Emilios Kyrou found that it does.
Kyrou went further, proclaiming that an "association" with Hitler constitutes an "egregious defamation". I do not accept that it was "serendipitous" that the ruling, which finds that the "association" with Hitler constitues an "egregious defamation", was unrelated to the exhibition which had condemned Christianity for Hitler's genocide.
Emilios Kyrou has in the past condemned those who he calls "racists" who criticised his own religion which he claims caused him humiliation and embarrassment; that it is "unfair" to be criticised over religion; and that such criticism can scar for life.
sleep of reason breeds theism.
Kyrou's finding is assessed by Israeli author Dov Ivry. His book can be bought from Amazon: Injustice Hits Rock Bottom Down Under: The Vakras Case
The matter is being appealed.
