Re: Hatred Of Thinking?
Humans failed with God. They are now failing without god.
What does this tell you, Phat?
The very idea of gods poisoned the species leading to much blood but since the gods are fake your two observations should tell you something significant.

Sundae Sunday
Phat's favorite apologist, Mr. Deity, asks a very puzzling question. If god resurrected himself then walked and performed miracles on earth for hundreds of people to see for 40 days before ascending back to his sky mansion, then why does the bible cover it up?

Merry Christmas.
For your consideration this glorious christmas season.
Phat, I know he's one of your favorites. A present for you and your fellow believers.

28 “Truly, I say to you, all sins will be forgiven the children of man, and whatever blasphemies they utter, 29 but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin.” -- Bible

Re: Feb 12: Celebrate The Day
Ah, yes. Super Bowl Sunday. I am ready for the game. I even made ChiliMac and have the chips 'n dips.
This one is too close to call. Jalen Hurts will have Chris Jones to deal with while Mahomes is staring down the Eagles front 4. All of them.
Technically, the analytics say the Eagles have a slight favor, real thin, in both pass defense and run offense but the intangibles, Andy Reid and staff v Nick Sirianni and staff (both acknowledged as excellent) gives a slight edge to the Chiefs.
This is going to be a back and forth shootout. I hope. A blowout would be tragic.
And skip the halftime show. It's gonna suck.
BTW, Happy Darwin's Day.

Because I say so!

The Great Commission
The Great Commission requires that I proselytize reality to the unwashed masses here at the EvC platform. It is the will of Gaia and I cannot resist her call.
MrDeity is a delightful personality in our priesthood with a sharp wit and some philosophically sharpened serrated slashing teeth ... eh ... reasoning.
Through the joyful banter of his experience and rescue from the clutches of the church he is building to more than a personal gripe. I especially like from 3:45-5:30.
A MrDeity video below the fold so to not offend the sensitive religious constitutions.

Re: Premature Conclusions
I fear you will always hate theism based on what you have concluded from the minds of others.
Phat, theism IS from the minds of others. That is the only place it resides. We can only conclude what history has taught us.
Religion causes you to believe falsehoods and to act on those falsehoods to the pain of humanity. Theism must be excised from the collective mind of our species because it always, ALWAYS, leads to war.
Theism is a poison. There is nothing there not to hate.

Re: Premature Conclusions
Lets start with Ukraine. How has religion fueled that war?
Why the Russian Orthodox Church Supports the War in Ukraine
quote:
When Russia invaded Ukraine, the Russian Orthodox Church (ROC) did not hesitate to throw its support behind the Kremlin’s war against a neighboring Orthodox nation. Far from wavering, that support has only grown more strident as the war progressed.

Re: Bless this AK-47 and may its bullets ring true
The church is a major supporter of the war. As with churches and war everywhere this church has aligned itself with the war lord. And this is a christian church. They're supposed to turn the other cheek.
Would you rather have drones or heartless zombies killing you?
I would rather have no one killing me especially for some centuries old land grab claim. But this church is on the front lines of the propaganda war, urging it's believers to go kill at the pleasure of the Tsar.
The church is despicably evil.

No, religion is not solely responsible for war. As nwr said war has a lot of causes. If religion is not directly causing the war they are a major player in supporting and recruiting for their war lord’s benefit.
If religion were to vanish would that end war? Of course not. It just won’t be available as a shield to hide the war’s true purpose. It wouldn’t be available to incent the populous to hatred and bloodshed. The war lords would have to find less insidious and more direct reasons to force mobilization. And the people will not be swayed by appeals to fantasy. It would be much more difficult to sustain war.
No, Anger doesn't do anything. It is not a useful emotion in this case. My objection to religion, as I have often stated, is such thinking causes you to believe in falsehoods and then to act on those falsehoods to make war on humanity.
People can believe anything. But if the fantasy of religion is no longer a part of our headspace then fantasy will not poison our real world decisions. We can only be better off as a species by basing our futures on reality.
