Auto-da-fe

Started this discussion. Last reply by Joey Daniel Smith Jan 5. 1 Reply

Auto-da-fe is an act of faith without reason and is based on childhood indoctrination. Religious beliefs appeal to our need to find meaning in life and to find meaning in death. Man-made religions…Continue

Religion and Nature

Friedrich Nietzsche proposed that a pontificating Christianity developed a moral system that inverts Nature. In The Anti-Christ, he said Christianity is "hostile to nature" and is a "religion of…Continue

"Maybe for some.  I had all that religious indoctrination too.  I sincerely believed all of it.  I quit believing any of it many decades ago.  Now I classify it with stories of Gilgamish, Ahura Mazda, Quetzalcoatl, Osiris, and…"

Gnostic Gospels

In 1945, 52 texts that came to be known as the Gnostic Gospels were discovered at Nag Hammali in Upper Egypt. These cryptic ancient papyrus manuscripts were hidden to avoid destruction by the Orthodox Christians. Gnostic Christian monks hid them sometime between 120 and 400 A.D. These heretical texts criticize key Orthodox Christian beliefs ----> eg. the virgin birth, divinity of Christ, and the resurrection of Christ. These views were profoundly dangerous challenges to the very survival of…See More

Simple Believers

Clement of Alexandria was a 2nd-3rd Century theologian who spoke of the ease of converting the many uneducated “simple believers”of his day to Christianity. I do understand and sympathize with these early believers who needed something to believe in. These early believers who feared death and the forces of Nature. However, I have scant patience with those present day supernatural believers who live in an age of having knowledge the Big Bang. In the Twenty-First Century, and the profound amount…See More

Supernatural Silliness

I have come to realize that if religious indoctrination takes place at a young enough age, it is astonishing what humans will believe. And, religious indoctrinated people will reject any future contrary information and/or opposition to the supernatural beliefs they have been taught. Early religious instruction leads to a mind-boggling number of unnatural beliefs and values such as: an immaculate conception (virgin births), original infant sin, limbo, purgatory, hell, sacred crosses, simony,…See More

Celibacy vs. Sex

In the Theory of Balanceology, sex is viewed as an inherent need that humans at some level must satisfy. I am going to get myself into trouble here from some of the readers, but being an ex-Catholic I need to say what I need to say. What I am about to say I should have said a long time ago. I start by asking the question, “What does it take to live a truly celibate lifestyle?” According to Bishop Spong, "those who know anything about celibacy know that true celibacy is a rare and unique…See More

Stockholm Syndrome

Stockholm Syndrome - I have difficulty understanding how any reasonably thinking person can have the faith of Islamic Jihadist extremists who have a goal to maim and kill "unbelievers." I agree with Francis Bacon that the deeper and more absurd the faith, the deeper it appears to be engrained. Once a faith is embedded in one's solipsistic reality it is extremely difficult to change. No wonder so many horrific things are done as an auto-da-fe (act of faith). Harris stated that, “central to most…See More
