A free thinker is not afraid of being called ‘different’

Freethinkers are confident, logical and intelligent. They give birth to their own ideas and resist the dominating mantras of the simple-minded.

Free-thinkers engage in creative thinking on many levels. Socially, emotionally, logically and spiritually.

Religion, Believing The Unproven Does It Help to Be Happy? Part 1

I don’t eat peanut butter. I find it repulsive and will go out of my way to not eat things with peanut butter.

People have often told me that I’m missing out. That food is so much better with peanut butter. “You’ve never had a Reese’s Cup? Or a PB&J? How can you be happy without having had peanut butter?”

The answer is, I’m plenty happy because it’s not important to me. It’s not something I require. I had my taste and quickly realized that I wasn’t missing out at all.

When someone asks “Can you be happy without believing in God?” what they’re really saying is “I don’t think I could be happy without believing in God.”

They’re projecting their feelings about religion onto others. They’re assuming their experiences are the only experiences.

We all do it to some extent, but it’s important to recognize that just because someone requires religion to be happy, that doesn’t mean that others do. I’m actually happier not believing in any religion? What if I asked you how you could be happy while being religious.

People might think that’s funny. That it seems obvious how being religious makes them happier.

It’s the same for me. Of course, I’m happy without believing in any religion—and why couldn’t you be?

The religious God is a PB&J and I don’t need either of them to be happy. But that’s just me.

How can anyone oppose the non-existent, and debate it fervently on the Internet? It is a waste of time. The radical and fanatical religious will never try to understand, they will never have an open mind.

Saturday Night For The Freethinker: Forgiveness For Everyone From Heaven (Dark Humor)

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.

Saturday Night For The Freethinker: Freethought Of The Day

Religion Is A Medieval Idea:

I just can’t comprehend how is it that there are so many religions, and so many people buying into them. Is it denial, pure ignorance, or both?

Saturday Night For The Freethinker: Telling The Truth And NOTHING But The Truth!

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?!
