When I thought I’ve seen it all!
…It’s easy if you try…
Now our freethought of the day:
“Every manmade disaster begins when one man thinks for another. However benevolent they begin, the ultimate outcome is tyranny.” ― John Kramer
“This got me thinking – if there are things inside us too tiny to see, might there be things outside us too big to believe?” ― Rene Denfeld
MY ANSWER: Could be. If so, I wish there was a Stargate device somewhere out there.
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.
It is so much easier to use logic than being absurd. I have no idea how illogical people manage their “entangled” thoughts. It must be very confusing and painful for their minds.
When religious fanatics approach me to try to “accept” their god or religion, I just walk away. Do not talk to them. They have an illogical mind. They will never reason. My time is precious.
If we all used logic more often…
And now our FREETHOUGHT OF THE WEEK!
Religiosity definition by the Cambridge Dictionary: “Religiosity is the quality of being very or too religious, or reminding you of religious behavior, often in a way that is annoying:”
Right now, I think everybody knows, that there are two main global crisis: health and financial, and it is exactly in these times when people tend to become even more religious than before the crisis.
That is a fact which has been proven through out the history of the world for hundreds of years. You can see a quote here The crisis has helped fuel the increasing religiosity in the country
Let me share with you some thoughts:
“I am a HUMANIST, because HUMANS are important to me” — Dr. Martha Castro N., MD
AND THE FREE THOUGHT OF THE DAY:
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?
