Look what we have done. December 6, 2009Posted by thegodless in Uncategorized.
In a world where the moral +1 religions rule, why is it that everwhere you look we are surrounded by -1 people? I have, in no uncertain terms, never met anyone that was morally superior with the addition of religion. I can’t claim that those with religion have been morally deficent either, but I can say, with personal observation, that religion gives many excuses for a normally moral person to act immorally. As someone who gets to see the darkside of humanity on a daily basis (I work with children of abuse and their abusers), I can state that I have yet to meet an Atheist child abuser. My point, I guess, is what have we done with our belief in a higher power? Look around and what do you see? Religion has ruled the landscape for thousnds of years and it has left the world in dire straights. Religion has had thousands of years to prove it’s worth and has failed at every level. If religion was so life altering we should have seen reductions in immoral behaviors in the nations that accepted it, but all we see is war, greed, corruption, etc. across the board. Religion is simply not worth the paper it was written on. If humanity has a need for transformative experiences maybe we should embrace critical thinking.
