Stop Putting Faith in Faith

But Damien, religion/god is a personal experience, one could not understand or explain without seeking, it’s more than faith it’s a relationship.   Okay you seem to like to lie to yourself I guess, faith is a relationship with non reality, and if feeling things where real what does that mean when thousands of very different religions all say they feel something thus it is true?   The folly of faith and its use as a method to truth or knowledge has been a great unreason, which has plagued humanity for thousands of years.   Faith is like an emotion or wishful-thinking that gives strong belief, confidence, or trust without the needed evidence to validate it and if there was such evidence that was valid, faith would simply not be required. Faith, while claiming to attach to hope, is more rightly connected or motivated by some form of fear and especially for the control of the present or hope to control some afterlife aspect.   The flaws in all afterlife beliefs are that they wrongly believe humans are not natural but contain magic or supernatural, which they clearly do not. Fear and the believed need for faith has been a motivation because humans for thousands of years have assumed that they have a magical spirit or supernatural soul that will survive the body after death where science demonstrates this is ludicrous. These magical faith beliefs provided the structure to create countless religions that developed into different branches of the same tree of lies.     What is faith anyway? http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/faith/   I am against faith which as a philosophy...

Fighting for People

We need to stop fighting a war on drugs and start fighting a war on poverty and homelessness, not fighting against those who are poor or homeless, but fighting for those who are financially insecure or homeless. What kind of advanced society can we claim to have when we care so little abut those in need? We need to help not attack the needy. Being poor sucks I have been poor in my life and it is depressing and can feel hopeless. They are valuable fellow humans, they need a help out not put...

Proud Anti-Religionist

Not just Atheist, I am a proud anti-religionist   Religion is Conspiracy Theories of Reality, Not Worth Believing In   Those atheists who still like esoteric religions or religious philosophies that is not me at all.   I reject it all, every religion or pseudo religion.   Just so I am not misunderstood this includes buddhism, satanism, taoism, paganism, wicca, spiritualism, etc.   Don’t get me wrong I am against ALL religion. I challenge your beliefs, because you won’t.   To me every religion was new at some point and had someone who made shit up, yes all of them, every religion.   As an atheist, I am a person who disbelieves or lacks belief in the existence of god or gods. In my non-belief, I am also ignostic feeling that every theological position assumes too much about the concept of god(s). As an ignostic, I am a person who rational no idea of anything from reality whatever to label as “a concept of god” thus I can say I have no idea of anything that can connect to the term god and no reason to think anyone else can either.   As an anti-theist, I am a person who is active in opposition to theism: both the concepts of god(s) as well as the religions that support them. This is because theistic concepts and theistic religions are harmful and that even if theistic beliefs were true, they would be undesirable.   As an anti-religionist, I am a person who can look at religion on the whole and see it is detrimental to the progress of humanity thus am...

Supernatural? Think Again, Seeing Isn’t Believing.

But, but, but.. You Don’t Understand, I have seen the supernatural…   Nice thought but think again, seeing isn’t always worth believing, why?   Because, our eyes, even our minds, tend to always play tricks on us.   According to Jason Fischer, who conducted the study published in the journal Nature Neuroscience while he was a doctoral candidate at UC Berkeley, your brain expects whatever it is you’re looking at to remain pretty much the same from one second to the next, and so it mashes together the image of the object as you’re seeing it now with the images of the object as you’ve just seen it.   http://alumni.berkeley.edu/california-magazine/just-in/2014-04-09/when-seeing-isnt-believing-our-eyes-always-play-tricks-us-and So, if you say you have seen magical things, beings or places, I say remember seeing isn’t believing.

Believe in Gods? No Thanks, There is a Better Way. :)

Life beyond the mental slavery of god beliefs. I speak out against god myths and the harm such lies can hold. I may at times offend believers but, No one has the right to not be offended. Beliefs in gods don’t offend me per say, they sadden me to see others in the mental bondage of a life not their own. For to have a god belief is almost always to have a master belief one who is over you, one who you must live for or suffer. Belief in gods is often a life battle against guilt and shame. I care too much about others to stand by and let them continue a life of mental slavery and say nothing when such fears are lies and a free life of their own choosing free of god masters is available. I do not tell others what to believe as it is their self-right but will explain there is a better way. 🙂 By Damien Marie...
