No Magic No gODs

There is no thing to prove magic, that thinking must be understood. That the world on every level of every test in every science throughout the entire time of scientific investigation shows no magic. Thus, no superstition or supernatural ever, so no way to justify the bullshit concepts of supernatural beings like gods. Therefore, such things have already been disproved and there is nothing, not even a shred of evidence or even a hint of evidence to validate such...

Let’s Discuss Humanism

Humanism According to  Fred Edwords at the American Humanist Association The sort of answer you get to the question “What is humanism?” depends on the sort of humanist you ask! The word “humanism” has a number of meanings. And because authors and speakers often don’t clarify which meaning they intend, those trying to explain humanism can easily become a source of confusion. Fortunately, each meaning of the word constitutes a different type of humanism—the different types being easily separated and defined by the use of appropriate adjectives. So it is relatively easy to summarize the varieties of humanism in this way.  Fred Edwords, born 1948, in San Diego, California, is a longtime agnostic or ignostic humanist leader in Washington DC. Read more at: http://americanhumanist.org/humanism/what_is_humanism Roughly a general classification of humanism and how I see humanism is a philosophical and ethical stance that emphasizes the value and agency of human beings, individually and collectively, and generally prefers critical thinking and evidence (rationalism, empiricism) over established doctrine or faith (fideism). The meaning of the term humanism has fluctuated, according to the successive intellectual movements which have identified with it. Generally, however, humanism refers to a perspective that affirms some notion of human freedom and progress. In modern times, humanist movements are typically aligned with secularism, and today “Humanism” typically refers to a non-theistic life stance centred on human agency, and looking to science instead of religious dogma in order to understand the world. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Humanism Humanism’s Origins There was a time when the term “Humanism” was first adopted in thinking is somewhat unknown. 6th-century BCE pre-Socratic Greek philosophers Thales of Miletus and Xenophanes of Colophon were the...

Reasons for or Types of Atheism

I will now offer helpful but simplistic definitions of why a position of atheism could be chosen it is of course just an over generalization but it will highlight the main idea though it always will be more substantive in reality and who is applying it. Adeist atheism: as you can see, we are dealing with a negative definition, an antonym, just like the words a-theist and a-symmetric. Deism is the belief that a supreme being created the universe and is no longer interfering, intervening or interacting with the universe or laws of nature (no miracles, revelations etc.) and an a-deist, rejects deism or does not share the beliefs of the deist most likely denies a supreme being created the universe exists or ever existed. Adeism is the position of unbelief, or non-belief in the existence of any God or supernatural being. 1 Agnostic atheism: addresses the issue of what one knows or claims to know about the existence of god/gods. Asserts an inability of any claim about the existence of god or nonexistence, Agnostic atheists are usually individuals who claim no one can know if or prove there is or is not a god, does not believe any god exists, but doesn’t claim to know whether this is actually true. In some cases, the agnostic atheism will assert that the answers to questions about the existence of gods are unknown and unknowable so the questions are essentially meaningless as “god” is ill-defined. 1 Analytical atheism: comes to disbelief because of deliberative analytical thinking on the god concepts. Psychologists believe that humans process information in two main ways: some...
