"We’re basically on the the same page, Michael. I think we agree that religion, in the cultural sense (it’s a way of life and if you don’t follow it, you’re shunned and maybe killed), and in the supernatural,  emotional…"

"Would even this kind of writing have made us believe if it was found? Some want to claim it would and they have written other bullshit manuscripts in current times, adding in aliens and disembodied spirits, etc. That looks like catching the gullible…"

Genesis, what if?

Genesis, what if?I’m not sure where to put this, or even if I should. But I’ll put it here in the hopes that some will find it of interest. Dear God,I’m sure you know that over my 76 years I’ve never heard from you. Not a peep, not even an hallucinatory “Your OK, little Skippy, no polyps.” as I was coming out of the anesthesia after a colonoscopy. But, I’ve thought about you with great wonderment. I want to ask you something and I thought that this web site would probably be the best place,…See More

"You bring up an interesting and crucial question, Martin, and imho it's been clearly demonstrated that reasonable argumentation will never be effective to counter religious beliefs. I find it interesting to consider what might be the root cause…"

"You are correct, Freethinker, in that non-theists are positive because they reject the belief that a supernatural entity created and intimately controls the universe, including Earth, and all natural processes and human lives as well. But my point,…"

Is the perception that non-theism is negative correct?

Of course, the concept that theism is positive, and non-theism is negative is two edged sword. If one is convinced that a supernatural entity or entities that dwell in a supernatural world created humanity for the purpose of developing a sentient creature that can understand the creators “power and majesty” and that will worship it/them to their death for the promise of eternal life; then, of course, theism is very positive and non-theism is so negative as to deserve (in some societies and in…See More

Hi Martin. I hear you--both on learning to navigate this site and on your dismissal of religion and leanings toward science. About the same time (actually 1954), when I was 11, I saw Saturn through a telescope and it blew me away. Leonardo da Vinci became my idol. Eventually, I became a science teacher which gave me a grand opportunity to impress the subject on young minds and indirectly diminish religion. I had to walk a fine line there!

Anyway, continue to explore the site and jump in any time.
