Don't let atheists grow in influence

Oct 11, 2013 Full story: This Is Staffordshire 207

Why, when people are arguing that we should not 'bow to religion', are we creating new rules for another religion that of atheism? The definition of a religion or faith is a belief in the existence or non-existence of God in the absolute absence of corroborative scientific evidence.

To be concerned that atheists are growing in influence should be a wake up call for theists that their way of understanding the universe is not working and is threatening to destroy the world we live in with it's many factions that can't even agree with each other on who's god is real.

The word "god" is simply that, a word.

Theology is the study of this word and what it is THOUGHT to relate to.

The problem with theology is that it does not describe what is no matter what god you use in your description.

This universe is an infinitely complex organism, this much we know. Even scientists are struggling to express in words what has been found so far.

Albert Einstein said it best:

""The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed."

Just like heroin can still the pain of appendicitis, religion can still the pain of the fear of the unknown.

But the cost of stilling this fear is the loss of the sense of awe.

And just like heroin, religion will only still the pain. But meanwhile the disease destroys the patient.

Easy answers always turn out to be the hardest to deal with.

Religion = superstition

It helps keep places like Waziristan and the Middle East from becoming developed economies and stable democracies.

It doesn't amaze me one bit because FILTHY EVIL ATHEISTS™ are why the killings were ordered, and every one of them rebelled just like you are rebelling right now.
You're fortunate that you have been spared until you enter your Hell , created for you and your god Satan.
I think the reason God continues to allow you to live is so that we can see firsthand WHY you will perish in Hell and why it is so important to adhere to Christianity.
The less justified a man is in claiming excellence for his own self, the more ready he is to claim all excellence for his nation, his religion, his race or his holy cause."

- Eric Hoffer in "The True Believer: Thoughts On The Nature Of Mass Movements" (1951)

I can't think of anyone less justified in claiming excellence for his own self than the village idiot of Pelham Alabama, in all his many sok puppet incarnations. He's so incompetent, he doesn't even try to hide the fact that the location for each of his sock puppets is the same. Surely, he doesn't think that he is fooling anyone into thinking that the town of Pelham, which is more dangerously inbred than the British royal family, could produce more than one person capable of typing a nearly coherent, almost grammatical sentence in English.

He's not *our* satan. The talking snake and all other incarnations of satan are part of your mythology. There's no more evidence for the existence of satan than for the existence of god.
I'm afraid I can't become an "upstanding christian". My information is that they make you lay down when they perform a lobotomy, not stand up.
Satan is Adam and he's been reincarnated as the Messiahs' father. The serpent was a part of Adams anatomy and it "speaking" was not literal, it was symbolic. Most of the story in the garden of Eden is allegorical. When Adam died and went to heaven, his name was changed to Satan. He went to heaven to preserve his life, to be reincarnated and to bring Messiah/God into the world. He's the only one who could genetically do this. He was the son of God and in this life is the father of God. He is responsible for the "crucifixion" and will be punished and executed for it. Isaiah 27:1. He is called "leviathan the piercing serpent"

Angels will inherit and inhabit the earth. Zechariah 14:5 "...and the Lord my God shall come, and all the saints with thee". I think Angels will resume their lives as they left them. We don't know what our bodies will be like, we'll have to wait and see. I do know there will be no physical imperfections. If you're blind, you'll see; if you're deaf, you hear; if you're paralyzed, you're restored; and if you're missing members, you're made whole.

One of the worst mistakes you can make in life is to attach your identity to any particular religion or philosophy, such as by saying “I am a Christian” or “I am a Buddhist.” This forces your mind into a fixed perspective, robbing you of spiritual depth perception and savagely curtailing your ability to perceive reality accurately. If that sounds like a good idea to you, you’ll probably want to gouge out one of your eyeballs too. Surely you’ll be better off with a single, fixed perspective instead of having to consider two separate image streams… unless of course you’ve become attached to stereo vision.
