Because of the Fall, Absolute Beauty in the World is Gone

Christianity uses the word absolute in several instances. Absolute truth, absolute goodness and absolute beauty are all useable , yet seemingly undefinable, terms used by theists.

 

Philosophically, many have tried to define the thought of…

The power to make others feel good

At this point I have little doubt that evolution equipped us with a strong mechanism to promote social cohesion and good will, essential to the survival of any social species, especially one without big fans or impressive physical abilities or power, such as ours. We naturally like to make other people feel good, we have an impulse to be helpful, to soothe others, to comfort those who are in bad shape, to feel other people's plight. No need for a god or gods coming up from above to give us…

Gratitude?

Grateful, I hear that word a lot from the religious. Grateful for the food on the table, grateful for family in their life, grateful that god has provided for them.

 

It is a word my wife uses often. She's grateful for every damn thing I do, drives me to drink; which…

My Father's Funeral...an Atheist's Funeral

   A few weeks ago my father passed away. Like me he was an Atheist. Like me he had been one since he was a young man. I was six when I “became” one, or rather realized, like with Santa, the Easter Bunny,

ghosts and all, it was all made up.

  So in keeping with my father’s wishes we had a non-religious funeral.  I gave the eulogy. I spoke about his life.  What he had…

Voices Carry

invade the membrane? I look at it this way.



Many times while reading a new post, I just scan through and tick off the points. I've
heard many, read…

The Supreme Court has ruled that you are allowed to ingest any drug, especially if you are an addict!

In the early 1920s, Dr. Linder was convicted of selling one morphine tablet and three cocaine tablets to a patient who was addicted to narcotics. The Supreme Court overturned the conviction, declaring that providing an addicted patient with a fairly small amount of drugs is anacceptable medical practice "when designed temporarily to alleviate an addict's pains." (Linder v.United States.)

 

In 1962, the Court heard the case of a man who had been sent to the clink under a…

One of the popes wrote an erotic book

Before he was Pope Pius II, Aeneas Sylvius Piccolomini was a poet, scholar, diplomat, and rakehell. And an author. In fact, he wrote a bestseller. People in fifteenth-century Europe couldn't get enough of his Latin novella Historia de duobus amantibus. An article in a scholarly publication on literature claims that Historia "was undoubtedly one of the most read stories of the whole Renaissance." The Oxford edition gives a Cliff Notes version of the storyline: "The…

Risk versus Reward

Just walking out of the house is a risk, However slight. Getting into your car to shop or visit, possible accident? Risk starts to rise, but reward still outweighs that risk. Satisfies the necessity of obtaining food to eat, the need to work and the need to socialize.
