"There is nothing remotely empathic about religious believers, dogmatic with a tendency towards murderous psychotic behaviour, puritanical, mysoganistic, discriminatory and brutally well organised. "

empathizing–systemizing

E-S ( empathizing–systemizing) and R-A (religious-atheist)For long time I have noticed that being atheist or religious very connected with the structure of the brain or the brain type , a theory by Simon Baron-Cohen, The empathizing–systemizing (E-S) theory, could fit perfectly with brain types of the religious and none religious people.The empathizing–systemizing (E-S) theory suggests that people may be classified on the basis of their scores along two dimensions: empathizing (E) and…See More

About Me:
I born Muslim but I think I never been religious in my all life.
Since I was kid I always suspect and asked questions that should never be asked.
I was little boy when they told us Adam's tale, at that time I didn't know the "reverse psychology", but I knew the concept, and I asked myself why god use "reverse psychology" with Adam, I mean why he tell him don't do something he want him to do "eating from the tree", and use pressure to make sure that he did it.
Even I have little brain but I knew that manipulating by "reverse psychology" is not right. for example can not tell my younger brother to do something he did not like to do, by telling him not do it, and I prefer to ask him directly.
So I asked myself why god use this sick behavior why he jut tell Adam go and populate the earth instead of making all these drama.
And then I started asking innocent childish question that any child in earth would ask: if god is creator then who create god?.

And when I get older I realized that one can not exist in something you create because it will be lower state.
Then when I learnt about how big the universe and the evolution theory and I realized that human are only subsidiary effect in some little corner in big universe and human are not stable species and can change with time, and individual human is only impulse in this development any maybe our descender will look at us same way we look at homo erectus. And all technology we have now will look like stone tools to them.
we do not appreciate homo erectus who stay for 1.8 million years making stone tool and increase the size of our brain, and religious people praised imaginary creator for that.

“Birds born in a cage think flying is an illness.” 

“One day, someone showed me a glass of water that was half full. And he said, "Is it half full or half empty?" So I drank the water. No more problem.” 


― Alejandro Jodorowsky

The theory of mind

Posted on August 15, 2014 at 8:17am 3 Comments

The theory of mind is the ability to attribute mental states—beliefs, intents, desires, pretending, knowledge, etc.—to oneself and others and to understand that others have beliefs, desires, and intentions that are different from one's own.

It start at age of four and can be demonstrated by this simple experiment.

Is it the right time for democracy in Mideast ?

Posted on August 12, 2014 at 3:44am 33 Comments

Democracy need fair play other wise it will be used by religion.

I don't think it is the right time for democracy in Mideast and that's because if there is democracy that means there will be Islamic parties, and the Islamic parties play in unfair way.

First the Islamic party use religion to frighten people about voting to other parties they tell people that if you vote for these parties you will go to hell because these parties include people who do not believe in god.
