Is it really the case


that

while i don’t and can’t speak for all atheists, I am an equal opportunity non believer and religious critic. I don’t care if one worships one god or a million of them. When I say miracles are impossible, it covers all miracles. It is not limited to Koranic or Biblical miracles only.

Come, let us reason together. No African Traditional believer has knocked on my door to preach. No wars have been fought because a voodoo specialist didn’t like how someone prayed.

When the Buddhists in Myanmar behave badly. We call them out. Or Hindoo nationalists in India, but one must realize these groups are so removed from my every day situations it would be a waste of brain cells to start a polemic against Lord Krishna when a polemic against the gods is sufficient.

I like the Mahabharata just the same way I like the book of Ecclesiastes and the book of Job. But when the bible talks of transporter fishes, or virgin births, I have to treat it as gossip of fools and lazy people.

If Abrahamic religionists want peace, they should follow the dictates of their books, like pray privately and each person to have their own religion and all. The moment you want to make your religion my business, expect push back.

    agreed on both comments.

    I don’t preach my lack of religion to anyone, it’s my business . Nor do I appreciate being preached to, that’s your business unless I ask, and I probably won’t.

    You rightly say: “When I say miracles are impossible, it covers all miracles. It is not limited to Koranic or Biblical miracles only.”
    Miracles are but belief in the suspension of natural law to suit a personal agenda. There are no miracles, only the delusion of the supernatural which was created by early humanoids eons ago. The unfortunate situation is that we are still chained to this delusion. GROG

    I despise all religions equally. They are all parasites upon humanity. They are all con jobs preying on the gullibility of the uneducated, and rely upon indoctrination to continue the parasitic cycle.

    None get a free pass at my house.

    Knock, knock, knock. Good morning, Mr. Shelldigger. Can I take a moment of your time to discuss The Revolution and how we will miraculously transform existing social and economic relationships so that the poor are rich, the rich are punished, and 7 billion consuming, producing human beings do not impact the ecosphere? The Book of Marx is your pathway to enlightenment, good sir.

    Hey, Maka. Love this post. I do disagree on one point: The Babble also directs Christians and spread the word. It also says it is the ONLY WAY. So, Christians are basically commanded to be narrow minded pests. 🙂

  9. Oh, the riotous sanctimony of Christians! Poor babies, they are so persecuted! Maybe they are just getting really defensive these days because their membership is declining. Well, if one engages in a popularity contest, one must be prepared for rejection.

    I loved the term “riotous sanctimony”. Because it brings out the risibility of their sanctimony, but also the inherent VIOLENCE behind their demands.

    Yeah, I don’t think it’s true that everyone else gets a pass. Given the amount of the world impacted by the Abrahamic religions and the popularity of literature, movies, pop culture etc that has references to such religions it’s simply the one that is going to garner most of the discussion, outrage, rebellion, etc. I would say there are worse and better religious philosophies, or rather worse and better ideas embedded in them. In the end all religions still fall prey to same logical fallacies as all the other ones.
