“Pharmacists must seek to raise people's awareness so that all human beings are protected from conception to natural death, and so that medicines truly play a therapeutic role”

Those in religion often make statements such as "There is something so much greater and more powerful than we are, but because we are only a small part of that greatness, we can't know the greatness that exists."

What they really infer, is that they are wise enough enough to know that a creator is the root of the power, and that THEY understand that issue, while those who don't take the issue on faith are very dumb and disrespectful indeed!

That religious attitude bespeaks of arrogance in the guise of humility.

Just because people believe there IS a creator, doesn't mean that such faith and assumptions are based on certain truth.

Maybe yes, and maybe no.

Christian preacher ... "If you believe in Jesus (who died for our sins) you will be saved."

"So are you sin-free?"

Preacher ... "No ... we are all sinners!"

"Then Jesus never paid your debt. You can't have it both ways. If you are still in sin, your debt has not been paid."

I used to relate to the words in this song ... but now I believe it belongs back in the dark ages with the rest of the religious nonsense.

Amazing Grace Lyrics

John Newton (1725-1807)
Stanza 6 anon.

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

T'was Grace that taught my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed.


Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come;
'Tis Grace that brought me safe thus far
and Grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me.
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.


Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

When we've been here ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we've first begun.

I've been in religion. I understand the feeling of being so WISE as to have faith "especially" without having proof that a god exists.

The euphoric feeling of being THAT wise and THAT trusting doesn't get much better than that.

If you choose to leave your cult, you will soon realize how fast the "loving ones" turn on you. Whether in or out of religion ... right-fighters don't like losing.

Ex-Pastor Turned American Atheist Director Tells How She Lost Faith

A former Methodist worship and teaching pastor who served in ministry for 20 years before becoming an atheist has been appointed as the American Atheist's public relations director. In an interview with The Christian Post, she revealed that despite initially being ostracized by friends, she is now happy and at peace with her decision.

I have one maybe from the church that I'm still in contact with, but initially they were all just very angry. They locked me out of the church and it took me some months to collect my belongings. It was a very difficult situation," MacBain explained about reaction to her initial announcement.

Brewer’s Dictionary of Phrase & Fable by Ivor H. Evans … First published 1817.

The Opium of the People. A CATCHPHRASE applied to religion. It is derived from Karl Marx (On Hegel’s Philosophy of Law).

Religion is the sigh of the hard-pressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, as it is the soul of soulless circumstances. It is the opium of the people.

The phrase, "The Bible helps interpret itself" is utter nonsense.

If there was one interpretation to the words in the bible, there would be only one duplicated bible and one interpretation and one proclaimed truth preached by human zombies all in a neat and uniformed row.

No matter which religion, humans molest the words to suit their own desires.

If madmen don't destroy the world with nuclear weapons, my guess is, one day the Adam and Eve concept of creation will be perceived as archaic nonsense.

Common Ancestor of Mammals Is Plucked From Obscurity

By JOHN NOBLE WILFORD

Published: February 7, 2013

Humankind’s common ancestor with other mammals may have been an animal the size of a rat that weighed no more than half a pound, had a long furry tail and lived on insects.

The researchers, he said,“have used their extraordinarily large analysis to predict what this earliest placental looked like, and it would be interesting to extend this approach to more branch points in the tree” including for early ancestors like aardvarks, elephants and manatees.

The idea that a god created Adam and Eve in material bodies with souls and as spiritual images of the god ... but left the other animals out in the cold, is the stuff of immature, self-ingratiating stupidity.

My guess is, humans evolved through survival of the fittest, just as did all other forms of life.

Except to our own psyches, which stem from self-flattery, we are probably not any more worthy than is a fly or a mosquito, or a cell that functions in our own bowels.

To lighten up, people first must deflate egos and stop using religion to make ridiculous claims of superiority over other forms of life.

In the quest to assure the idea that a god created the universe, a woman of the Christian faith stated in an affirmative manner that many scientists believe in a god.

That proves nothing whatsoever!

You can bet that the scientists in the vatican profess a firm belief in "god."

That doesn't prove anything either, except that people often lie to assure their livelihoods.

All of this gibberish of human ancestors coming from outer space is another myth that banks on ignorance.

If our ancient ancestors are in outer space, then humans on earth are not special to a god, as the original human gene-pool belongs elsewhere.

Silly stuff in deed!

At times I wonder what would have happened if I had not said, no not yet and force may way back down. I know the mind can play tricks on you but this was real. My friends are my witness'. Bill stated, thought we would be in hospital this evening.
Sure glad my guardian angel was with me that day. Not afraid of dying just have much more work to do.
I hope you didn't misunderstand me. In no way do I doubt you. I know you would NEVER lie about this or anything else for that matter. So don't think you need to try to convince me, friend. It must have been one heck of an experience, I'd probably have been somewhat frightened. I am VERY interested in things of this nature, so if you have or know of any other experiences, PLEASE tell me :)

Hi June,

In no way do I believe our ancestors came from "out there" but I think it's very probable that there exist other life forms (above microbes, etc.) and that these "beings" either have or will evolve as we did, though we probably look much different. Who knows, maybe they breathe in methane gas or ammonia and there are five separate genders (HA! to you homophobes) I don't think we'll find out in our lifetime because as Dr. Sagan said "It's a big cosmos" but someday they'll be discovered. To all who think this is a crazy idea, go tell that to the scientists who placed all those radio telescopes strategically on this planet, listening for coherent sounds...you think they put them there for nothing?? I'll believe a scientist over a priest any day. You should try to keep an open mind. Or are you afraid to do that because it might conflict with your religion tales?

Well of course we all believe what we find most pleasing to our desires.

I went through my religious phase and now believe that we evolved physically from other species.

As for evolving in wisdom, I don't believe that will ever occur, as ignorance can't go beyond itself.
