Strive to Be the Person You Want to Meet

As a Axiological Atheist my focus is positive, validation geared towards assisting in a greater sense of well being, connectedness and balance, motivated and directed rationale, and challenge reasoning to expand new thinking both in myself and others. As a Axiological Atheist I value a universality of lovingness towards other beings and nature. My ethical approach is centered, infused, supports a caring and just understanding of needs and goals to achieve a new levels of balance, self-actualization, self-mastery, and self-freedom. I have reached a place in my life where I value my own authenticity more than wining some kind of approval. I do enjoy being liked but will not change to have that happen. I know myself, love myself and live as myself as much as possible. I try to be a truth teller and a seeker of knowledge and a person addicted to wisdom both for myself and from others. I wish to champion the mental freedom of disbelief in faith, superstitions, religions, and gods. I not only want to not be something false like a believer in superstitions, I wish to stand for something valued, so I strive to be one who is also thoughtful and caring of others trying if I can to protect, inspire or empower. If others like me great, if they don’t accept the real me that is their loss, but I will never regret being me.

I Want No Child to Go Hungry

I will no longer quietly accept the things I cannot change anymore; I will speak out seeking to change those things I cannot accept. I was in poverty but my abusive father as an asshole and would not sign me up for a free lunch program. I was only given a half a banana for lunch for like 3 years I was starving at school so I get how it feels and thus wish to fight against child hunger and speak loudly for this issue. I started bullying other kids taking a piece of their lunch for extra food. After I got in trouble the fourth time, I started to take some of some the other kids’ food and I got suspended. I never took their whole lunch. Then I started eating these semi edible berries “not anything others eat”, if you can even call them that and eating sour grass. The school saw what I was eating and trying to get by and they decided to have me wait tell everyone got a free lunch and if any scraps where left they would give them to me. Sometimes, this was 3 milks or some other thrown together scraps but nothing like a real meal. I just never knew and had to hope it would be something good. Sometimes, I actually got a half a sandwich but it’s the always having to hope that was emotionally hard and I was ashamed that I was even lower than kids getting a free lunch. This is why even though I have no kids my heart goes out for all kids I...

Keep Your Religion Out of My Life

If you are religious ok its your life, you have religious convictions on how you believe your life should be lived by all means, live your life as you see fit. I agree no one should make you live your personal life anyway not right for you, as it is your life. We both can agree on that. Good now that we agree, so when it comes to forceful opinions about laws for others’ lives or political positions working against letting others live their life as they see fit, I don’t want to hear you think you can freely oppress others just because of your religious convictions or because of how you wish to freely live your life feel justified wishing to stop others do the same. Just live your life and stay out of my life or my freedom to live it as I see fit. According to a 2012 Gallup poll, 17.8 percent of all Americans said they were nonreligious. Our numbers are growing as America increasingly becomes a secular society, Atheists, as well as agnostics, skeptics, secularists and humanists, have a huge stake in how others who are religious keep trying to push their religious opinions and religious convictions in our free secular democracy and we will no longer be silent we are making our secular democracy voices heard. http://www.pewforum.org/2012/10/09/nones-on-the-rise/ Most religions in the world have and/or are killing people. Just think of all the wars fought between religions and in the religions, themselves, lots of people were killed. In those wars so many people died in both sides to protect their god but the god did not protect...

The Empty God Box

The Empty God Box In scientific terms a “LACK OF EVIDENCE” is/can be proof of non-existence. As with all things as new evidence is discovered views can change. I can prove something does not exist by its lack of existence, the box is empty? Is a box empty? I can prove god is not in the box, but some say I can never prove the box is empty. But is it right to say the god Box is never empty even if we remove its needed contents. It’s an exercise in rhetoric with what we do know to say the god Box is not empty of all evidence and reason thus all it can be is empty of validity. And still today people say empty god boxes are possibly not empty? The god Box is was and will always “LACK OF EVIDENCE” thus empty proving the god concepts non-existence. Think I am wrong then you go and keep looking or trying to empty that already empty box labeled god devoid of all facts or reason. I reject that even the term god has any valid coherent meaning outside myths. As a Ignostic Atheist I reject that even the term god has any valid coherent meaning outside myths. Ignosticism, or igtheism is a theological position that is similar to theological non-cognitivism which views religious language as not cognitively meaningful or connected to atheological thinking in general which is opposed to theology; thus is atheistic by default. If followed to its logical end Ignostic thinking concludes that the entire question about God’s existence is a non-question and that feeling a requirement to...

Faith? No, I Use Reason: Conjecture, Inference or Direct Evidence

“Damien, you say you don’t value faith but what you fail to realize in saying this is that almost everything we do requires some sort of faith.” Wrong, wrong, wrong faith, is strong belief without evidence or contrary to evidence. I use reason: conjecture, inference or direct evidence no need for faith. Faith: firm belief in something for which there is no proof or strong religious feelings or beliefs. http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/faith “To me faith is strong belief without evidence or contrary to evidence.” Conjecture: an opinion or idea formed without proof or sufficient evidence or a conclusion deduced by surmise or guesswok. http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/conjecture Inference: the act or process of reaching a conclusion about something from known facts or evidence....
