"I think it's rather clear why naturalism hasn't gained momentum as a worldview. That's because a worldview generally refers to a system of beliefs that encompasses morality, i.e. some code of conduct for the just life. Since Hume…"

"I think part of the problem may be that many pagans use Naturalist as well.  They use it as a term to go along with their beliefs,as many pagans will describe their beliefs as not supernatural, but as part of nature itself.  So maybe it…"

Must See TV (O.K. Youtube)

A great short explanation of why naturalism is a more explicative term and atheist and also why naturalism is hard work, but worth the effort ("Naturalists have a lot more work to do than simply rejecting God; they bear the responsibility of understanding how to live a meaningful life in a universe without built-in purpose. ").…See More

Hello J J, just responding to a comment you made on the Military Atheists page- the one that you addressed towards Active Duty Navy:

 

Yes. They still do the prayer at taps over the 1MC, at least they did as of August when I was last underway on my last ship. I once passed through the messdecks during a prayer and didn't stop and bow my head, and as a result got some really nasty looks from some sailors that were sitting there.

Also, something that may bring a smile: for a time, people will purposely call the chaplain's office phone and try to get their ring on the 1MC when the prayer was made- it was sometimes funny to hear. I almost always completely ignored the prayer.

Take care J J.

Hi J J. Welcome to this friendly meeting place
where we recognise that all gods are phoney and religion is a great fraud used to control people; and how it is tragic and inexcusable that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years.

Terry Meaden (physicist; retired)
founder of the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its 260 discussion topics. We invite you to join us.
