I can’t stand when people try to say that atheism and religion use faith.

We atheists, have archaeology that proves religion is a lie, so no faith is needed. Moreover, We atheists, have science which shows that every mystery has ever turned out to be nature and not magic. There is nothing that the only explanation is magic or supernatural anything, so for religion it has no evidence at all. All religion has is faith without any proof and do not try to say that atheism is anything like...

12,000 – 10,000 years old Shamanistic Art in a Remote Cave in Egypt

12,000 – 10,000 Years Ago – (Egypt), found what seems like shamanistic art in a remote cave, in which art mural of swimmers, possibly swimming off to the afterlife; as water has been viewed as a path to the afterlife, like how baptism is thought to kill the old self and once returning from the under the water. Furthermore, ritualistic art consisting of hand silhouettes and cattle as well as what could be a ceremony maybe even an early paganistic/polytheistic expression as female figures and a row of 10 figures each holding a crescent moon or bull horn over their heads with both hands may even reference afterlife to us are extended. However, it is the swimming figures, possibly to a secret passage, which could illustrate the passage into the afterlife. Death was commonly seen as connected to water or underwater which is why baptism is seen as rebirth or death of the old self by going under the water.   References 1, 2...

Sexist Buddha

Although many people believe Buddhism is an “egalitarian” religion, the fact will remain that sexism/gender bias has been a very integral part of the faith for many centuries. Overall, there is less virulent anti-woman bigotry within Buddhism than many other religions, especially the Abrahamic cultus of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, but misogyny and chauvinism have been apparent enough in the Eastern faiths as well, including the Buddhist. Historical bases for Buddhist are more important than sectarianism changes. Just like Christian sectarianism changes can make it anything they want and still can’t hide from the history of inequality. Evidence from what is called the Dead Sea Scrolls of Buddhism show:   Clearly that none of the existing Buddhist collections of early Indian scriptures—not the Pali, Sanskrit, Chinese, nor even the Gandhari—“can be privileged as the most authentic or original words of the Buddha.” http://whitefeatherforum.yuku.com/topic/3808/The-Dead-Sea-Scrolls-of-Buddhism “In crossing the river [from Saṃsāra to emancipation] (…) crocodiles are a designation for women.” Gautama Buddha, Majjhima Nikāya 3   “If it were not for women being admitted into [our order], my teachings would have lasted 1000 years, now they will not last 500.” Gautama Buddha, Dīgha Nikāya 3   “Women, with their two-fingered wisdom [i.e. stupid], have a difficult time [understanding what I teach].” Gautama Buddha, Saṃyutta Nikāya 4   “It cannot happen that a woman may become a Tathāgata, a Sammsambuddha.” Gautama Buddha, Aṅguttara Nikāya 3.14 http://en.m.wikiquote.org/wiki/Women Traditional Buddhist attitudes toward women associate the feminine with the sensual realm as opposed to the Dharma realm. Women are either depicted as lustful temptresses who threaten the spiritual welfare of monks or as the maternal source...

Sexism, Prejudice, and Killing in Vedic Culture (Hinduism)

There are some points about Vedic society brought out by this text of Gita, which are difficult to swallow in this regard:   There does exist social distinctions between women and men There are no such thing as women being of the four varnas and ashramas, it is only for men. Women obtain varna practically as a result of who they marry. This point is not entirely true – as we will find that when a brahman lady marries a kshatriya, the child is considered a hybrid. Therefore the caste of the woman does have some independant status. There does exist social distinctions between various types of men.   “Those who take shelter in Me, though they be of lower birth — women, vaiśyas [merchants] and śūdras [workers] — can attain the supreme destination.” – Krsna in Bhagavad Gita (9.32)   https://vicd108.wordpress.com/2011/03/16/sexism-prejudice-and-vedic-culture/   Bhagavad-gita (16.7) “Those who are demoniac do not know what is to be done and what is not to be done. Neither cleanliness nor proper behavior nor truth is found in them.”   So who are they talking about well unbelievers (us atheists) those who do not follow the scriptural injunctions are supposed to be demons. So to the Bhagavad-gītā demons neither like nor follow all these rules for external and internal cleanliness and because they do not follow the experience of great sages and the rules and regulations laid down by the sages, the social condition of the demoniac people is very miserable.   http://vedabase.net/bg/16/7/en   Bhagavad-gītā has an appeals or call for violence such as how Krishna exhorts a confused Arjuna   “that taking...

Taoism is “woo woo” bullshit nonsense

Taoism is the personification of “woo woo” bullshit nonsense offered as wisdom: “I confess that there is nothing to teach: on religion, on science, on body of information, which will lead your mind back to the tao. Today I speak in this fashion, tomorrow in another, but the integral way is beyond words and beyond mind.” http://wuchifoundation.org/documents/TRA19_Hua_Hu_Ching.pdf The Tao sees the world as male (yang) and female (yin) which is very sexist. Chinese literature beginning with the classic cannon Yijing (book of Changes) we see sexism as we find the male (yang) symbolized as day or the sun embodying everything good and positive, and this status is identified with heaven. Whereas the female (yin) is symbolized as night or the moon embodying everything negative, evil and lowly....
