But most likely the traumatic event would’ve caused Timmy to stop believing, and Timmy would be burning in hell forever.
I always ask this to believers, and they have no good response.
When I thought I’ve seen it all!
…It’s easy if you try…
Now our freethought of the day:
Why do people lie so much? Hiding, convoluting, hurting each other, and then, lying again.
It’s annoying for me, the lying, the fantasies that people create, invent and imagine, for one reason or another.
I rather the harsh truth on my face than a “compassionate” lie behind my back. It’s much easier to tell the truth than a lie. It has less complications and makes you free.
Believing in God or not, being religious or not, that doesn’t make you a better or worse person. Look at this “wonderful” cyclist I used to admire, a lot: Lance Armstrong, an atheist who cheated his entire career to get ahead. He had the guts to say the following… “I hope I would be judged on whether I had lived a true life”. Really?!
And, on the other side of the coin, we have this filthy theist Christian Florida pastor, finally in jail, thank goodness.
And now our FREETHOUGHT OF THE WEEK, and it’s about truth.
After a wonderful Saturday with the family, a relaxing Freethinking Night, why not?
ABOUT THE AFTER LIFE — Harry Houdini
ABOUT RELIGION — Richard Dawkins
When your sins are just too many…there’s a party to attend, every Sunday!
Jesus was ahead of his time. Prepared for these ungodly times, huh?
Make it worth it for Jesus, a “sin” here and there…
Now, our FREETHOUGHT OF THE DAY
-HUMOR: but what about those people who find pleasure hurting themselves, you know, masochists and what not? I don’t think that “do unto others as you would have them do unto you” would be very kind. 😅
Yes, a very smart child has reasons to choose science over religion. Choosing freedom from religion liberates the mind, and has the great potential of making the individual a very happy human being. Nothing is better than living a life free of fear of punishment and hell, free from the constant control of people who praise fairies, leaves a great space in our minds for knowledge and everyday evolution of our mental capacities and real-sincere compassion for humanity.
I absolutely despise the hypocrisy in religion. I was raised Catholic then Methodist and I was always taught “Judge not lest ye be judged”, “Love thy neighbor as thyself”, and “Do unto others as they would have done unto you.” So, what exactly have I witnessed in Christianity? None of it!
You can’t just call yourself a “Good Christian” and then discriminate against different groups of people. If there was really a God, why are very good people dying of terrible diseases like cancer? Why are so many people across the globe living in poverty? Why is there always fighting? Why is there no world peace?
It’s not okay to go up to someone and say “If you don’t accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you are going to Hell.” Everyone is entitled to have their own beliefs and people need to respect that. Also, there are over 4000 different religions throughout the world, so how can anyone assume that their religion is right and everyone else is wrong?
