Doctrine of Original Sin

The history of most early religions formulated a dualistic split between spirit and body. This split put us above the Animal Kingdom. It made us superior to other creatures in Nature. This superiority of humans led to an anthropocentric view of humans. This dualistic split lead to the natural bodily instincts of humans as being inferior. This horrendous vilification, desecration, denigration, and contamination stance against human nature is due to a religious fear of human instincts. This…

Number of Relgions

The excerpt I am posting here is from my book,  "Balanceology:  The 4 M's of motivation, meaning, measurement, mitigation."

Number of religions - I advance the idea that the pure number of religions certainly is an indication that they are man-made jokes. Over the past 6,000-12,000 years, it has been astonishingly estimated of the existence of 100,000 different religions in various cultures across the globe (more to come). Harrison pointed out,…

Dualistic Battle

I recently wrote a book entitled, Balanceology: The 4 M's of motivation, meaning, measurement, mitigation.  I want to share with everyone an excerpt that I call "Dualistic Battle" from Chapter 19, The Great Mysteries.

I was raised a Roman Catholic. That is raised, not born! There is a huge difference between being born with a trait and being conditioned to a belief. We are…

'Mummy, can you spray my face white?'-

Isn't this the saddest story you've heard in a long time.

How can a society that call's itself civilised make a child feel like that? When are we going to reach that time when the colour of a child's skin won't matter.

May 28, 1830: Andrew Jackson signs Indian Removal Act

On this day, then U.S. President Andrew Jackson signed the Indian Removal Act into law, authorizing the relocation (sometimes forced) relocation of Indian tribes. The original bill only allowed payment-based negotiation with tribes east of the Mississippi, but the U.S. government resorted to force after…

Krauss, Silverman, and Feet of Clay

It was late February, 2018 when I first learned about issues regarding Lawrence Krauss and his inappropriate behavior toward women. Then in the first week of March, I got an email from American Atheists, indicating that David Silverman was being suspended from the presidency of that organization, pending an investigation. One week later, I learned that he has been removed from that position. In both cases, the only forthcoming source of details regarding both Krauss and Silverman is…

The Thin Veneer of Deeply Held Religious Beliefs

“I have met some highly intelligent believers, but history has no record to say that [s]he knew or understood the mind of god. Yet this is precisely the qualification which the godly must claim—so modestly and so humbly—to possess. It is time to withdraw our 'respect' from such fantastic claims, all of them aimed at the exertion of power over other humans in the real and material world.”

― Christopher Hitchens, The Portable Atheist: Essential Readings for the…

African religion

Most commentary on religion on the web deals mainly with the Abrahamic faiths. Whenever Buddhism is talked about, mainly it is like now when they are fighting the muslim minority in Burma. African religions hardly ever get a mention or even a footnote. It is this anomaly that I seek to correct by writing a few pieces on African religion to join those others written by people more qualified than I am.…

What brings people to be extremely forgiving of "horrible" crimes

One of my questions is "are atheists more forgiving". But before i get into that,what is the purpose of forgiveness and why do we forgive.

Forgiveness is one of two things we can do,be merciful or killed in an evolutionary sense(the modern of form of killing may be imprisonment or shunning). I suppose this has something to do with the fact that some people are beneficial to us and it would be wasteful to kill them.Contrary to this,  people who are of no value who are causing a ruckus…

I am fucked to be an athiest

Hello world, i currently feel like shit.Literally,just like how i used to whine on the floor during my sujoods whining to the sadistic God of Abraham(aka God,Yahweh,Allah). But now i am thinking,was Allah that sadistic.

Why i Love Moana

Have you Seen Moana? It is one of the finest Disney movies of all time. One reason why i loved this movie was Dwayne Johnson's role as Maui. You see he has these cool polynesian tribal tattoos that could talk and walk. I loved this concept. I hope they release the sequel of this movie.

A Never-Ending Battle?

I have no illusions that there’s an endgame.  These problems never go away.  You have to educate every single generation about this and make sure it doesn’t creep back into our society.  There’s no sense in which the job is ever done.
