Auto-da-fe

Started this discussion. Last reply by Joey Daniel Smith Jan 5, 2019. 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

I Know that I Know; that I Know that I Know!

Over the years “religious” acquaintances of mine have defended their supernatural beliefs by saying, “I know that I know; that I know that I know.”  For me, this is an  egotistical defense of  stupidity. Their use of “I know” is basically a sandbagging defense mechanism since there is no way to logically and factually defend supernatural nonsense. Isn’t it futile to try to make sense out of nonsense? Supernaturalism is the absurdity of saying, “there is absolutely no way I can scientifically…See More

Spirituality and/or Religion?

Posted on April 7, 2019 at 12:56pm 3 Comments

Spirituality and/or Religion?  - 

I have asked,  “Is it possible to be a spiritual person without being a religious person?,” “Is it conceivable to be a spiritual person and not belong to an organized religion?,” and “Can a person be spiritual and at the same time be an atheist?” I submit that the answers to all of these questions is yes. The answers are yes, if we acknowledge that religion is man-made and spirituality is nature-made. George Vaillant…

Theology of Separation

Posted on March 30, 2019 at 8:58am 2 Comments

A Theology of Separation is a wants-based theology. A wants-based theology has human interaction with an ultimate source in an endless petitionary role. I want ---> I petition;  I am in trouble ---> I pray;  I desire ---> I seed faith money. A wants-based theology is a dependent theology based on a patriarchal ultimate source. A wants-based theology is not open to questions related to its dogmas and doctrines ---> in fact it fears such questions.…

Gnostic Gospels

Posted on February 16, 2019 at 8:31am 5 Comments

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…
