We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

The attached article is intended to engage all people who wonder about the purpose of their life on earth.  

I am looking for comments from an atheist about:

1. The metaphor of the mountain paths

2. How do you feel about this quote from the article:

A religious belief is not a statement about Reality, but a hint, a clue about something that is a mystery, beyond the grasp of human thought. In short, a religious belief is only a finger pointing to the moon. Some religious people never get beyond the study of the finger. Others are engaged in sucking it. Others yet use the finger to gouge eyes out. These are the bigots whom religion has made blind. 

Atheists may be upset about the hypocrisy of fingers

Do they believe in a moon?  A moon that only lasts as long as our earthly body does?

 

thanks for taking the time to comment

Thanks for sharing with us this article. I'll have to re-read it a few more times to make sure I've understood it.
