Why would you think …

GOD IS NOWHERE.

Every villain needs a plausible deniability scapegoat. “God” failed at that, too.

I’d prefer to be where the scientists and independent thinkers are anyway, rather than grovelling before Kim Jong-YHWH, the Satan of Heaven.

Mysterious ways / preached at

This morning Ron and I went to the grocery store for a few items.   I needed to use the men’s room at the store.  The store set up is a narrow doorway to area with the bathrooms for each gender off  each of the sides sides and a family bathroom direct ahead.  So one narrow door and then three doors.   Remember the set up , it gets important.   As I was exiting the men’s room two older ladies were about to come through the first narrow doorway.   Being a nice fellow, I stepped to the wall and motioned them to proceed.  They thanked me and I thought nothing more of it.   I feel being courteous and kind should be practiced when I can do so.    So as we left the store I noticed the two ladies in the parking lot looking around.   Again I thought nothing of it.  Then as I got into the car while Ron put the groceries in the hatch trunk, I noticed the ladies were now walking towards us.  They stopped at the car and I lowered the window, my thought was they needed help with something.  Nope!  They wanted to share their god with me.  Yup, right there in the hot sun in the parking lot.  They started to hand me literature while winding up into the sales pitch.  I broke in nicely and told them I was glad they had faith but I was an atheist.  Apparently to these ladies atheist was code for please tell me all about the bible.   Which one did while the other tried to put a leaflet in the window on my dash.   I could feel my temper rising.  I tried to stay calm and told the lady that in my opinion her bible was a man made book put together from texts chosen by men with the idea of controlling the masses.   That seemed to startle them like the idea was something no one had ever expressed to them, and I was really begging them to tell me why the bible was the word of god and how very true the book was.   The one lady kept asking me did I really not believe the bible and did I really think the bible was written by men.   Ron could tell my patience was running out and to forestall any outburst he told the ladies we had to go and ushered them away from the car.  As we were driving home I asked Ron why the ladies thought they had a right to approach people and just start in about their deity.  Can you imagine a atheist doing that , walking up to strangers and preaching to them about gods not existing?  They would go nuts on the atheist and claim harassment.  Yet these ladies had taken my original courtesy as a signal to preach to me about their holy book and their version of god.  I also think keeping going after being told you have no interest in the subject is really just harassment.

The above was the second grocery store we went to.  At the first one the cashier kept telling us about the blessed day, have a blessed day, she was so blessed this blessed day.   I want to tell her lord Satan thanked her for the blessing , but I figured she would have a melt down and try to do an Exorcism on the spot.   As I was in a hurry I refrained.  Again saying that once, OK, but to keep repeating it like a mantra to someone is simply harassment I feel.  I sure was not happy, and it should have showed if the woman had even cared what I thought of her “blessed day”.     Hugs

Top 10 Crazy People Who Claimed to Be God

Filed under: Atheism, Creator, Criminal, News, Questions, Religion — Tags: , , , — Scottie @ 13:54

As you watch these think on this, how are these any different than Scientology, Mormon groups, Jehovah witnesses, and all other religious claims made without evidence?    Also ponder what you would say if your neighbor told you god talked to them?  Then they tell you God told them to build an alter?   Next they tell you God told them to kill one of their children on it.   If you are a member of one of the abrahamic religions you must think it is a great thing your neighbor is about to do, as that is what was asked of the founder of those faiths.    If like me you are an atheist and feel strongly that killing kids is not an act of commitment to a unseen unproven never there sky god,  You immediately do whatever it takes to protect the children from the madman neighbor you have.    Think on it.  Hugs

Just heard a good one on a video.  In the beginning of the bible before he made anyone to hear him, god is talking to someone.   IS he talking to himself?  Is he may be Schizophrenic?  Could explain a lot.  Hugs

Religious freedom

Religious freedom.   https://aghostdancer.wordpress.com/2015/05/18/religious-freedom/comment-page-1/#comment-2447

There were several points in this post that moved me greatly and I wanted to excerpt them for the repost here.   I have been given Michelle’s permission to repost her posts, and I thank greatly for that.   However by the time I started looking at all I wanted to point to, from what the Native Indians believe, the idea of all being able to have different ideas with out being against each other, to her grandfathers wise words, and  Black Elk’s prayer for all life.  So instead I will just say I got a lot out of the post and think I will be a better person today than I was yesterday simply for reading and trying to understand what she wrote, and the wisdom of the elders.    Hugs

Christian preacher, Tony Miano,…

Filed under: Bigotry, Creator, Economics, Greed, News, Religion — Scottie @ 14:06

I think this preacher lost his way.  This is not faith, it is not Christian, it is not in the spirit of any god of goodness.   It is hate, ego, greed, power hunger and so much wishing harm on others.   I know good  Christians with hearts full of compassion who are pouring their hearts, love, and all they can into helping these poor people who suffered this tragedy, these decent souls who believe in a loving God are doing what they can and even if it is only praying for the health and well being of those suffering, even if it is wondering why bad things happen to people, these Christians will be sending energy of love and hope.   Those who can will send money and many churches will establish funds.    They shouldn’t be link with or grouped with bigoted assholes like the Tony Miano.   Please understand he has a religion, a business to make money and gain power, the Christians trying to help have faith.   Big big difference.   Hugs

Holy Fucking ShitBalls — iranian-atheist: Christian preacher, Tony Miano,….

excerpt below, please read the rest if you can stomach it at the link above.

iranian-atheist:

Christian preacher, Tony Miano, declares to the world that he is a heartless asshole!This is sadly no sick joke. This is a serious statement by Tony Miano, a Christian preacher, in response to the devastating Nepal earthquake that has killed nearly 2,000 people so far. I have a great deal of respect for people’s beliefs and I am a strong proponent of religious freedom, but people like this man are disgusting! You can follow the tweet and read/respond to the thread that follows, as he goes on to further justify his vile statement: https://twitter.com/TonyMiano/status/591971536870871041

Killing The First Born For Pass Over

Filed under: Creator, Ideas, Magic, opinion, Web sites I like — Scottie @ 11:52

First before you read this wonderful post I borrowed from this blog https://myatheistlife.wordpress.com/ a blog I read, enjoy and like, I have to add a few thoughts of my own.   I am not a monotheist as most of you know.  However I am also not against faith nor the powers of the natural.   I dislike the term super natural as I think it is used to describe things not true for a business sake.  All powers and energies not scientifically understood in my view are still natural.   We just have not figured them out yet.  

It may surprise you to know I have several blogs I go to that are run by and have a christian theme and I do not insult or make fun of them.  The reason is these people understand the difference between their personal faith and the big business of organised religions.   I would never insult or demean people with that understanding and to tell the truth my own life at 17 was saved by a man and his family who understood that ideal.    Faith is internal and between you and what ever you worship, religions are businesses for the purpose of making money and showing off.

I do believe in powers, I think people can tap into them, I feel and see energy bands, I have an idea of a life after my mortal one as I believe my essence to be energy.  I love parts of some other faiths, the Native Indians have a faith system I respect and find soothing.   I often listen to the native chants and songs even thought I can’t speak the words the music says something to me and helps me.  I like the message of the Buddhist and find wisdom in the ideas of enlightenment, wanting what you have instead of having what you want.  I am pagan and I love and wear symbolic amulets, I am trying to find more inside my self and relate it to my world outside my self.  I believe I can channel energy, I am some what gifted physically  and I see things others don’t see, or  sometimes I see them more.  If I am still I believe I can get feelings of the right things to do or be warned of danger.  I believe in Karma.  I love the dragon that comes to my home to play with my cats and enjoy being with us.    Maybe I could say I have faith in the force of Star War’s fame.

Having said all that and there is more, it is a faith of mine, personal to me.  While Ron and I are both pagans and we both believe in magic we have different ways of understanding our faith, practicing it, and we differ in which parts we excel in.   That is what I mean by faith.  It is very very personal.   We get together with others who think like we do and all of us are somewhat different in ideas and gifts of energy.  This is why I often say I wouldn’t want my faith taught in schools, nor would I want laws made based on it.  My faith can not be pushed on anyone, it is not their faith.  Now many have asked and I have shown and taught them as best I could and then they develop their own faith.   I hope you can see the difference.  I hope you can understand why I dislike religion greatly and I have issues with most of them, the holy books they use.  It is not an attack on personal faith, it is an attack on a behavioral control system which takes money from the lowest rung and give it to the people at the top.  Religion is a business to make money.   Faith is a way to live.   Religion can be forced on others and legislated, my faith can not.   I think the same is true for the many people who come to my blog and I know who have a personal faith in one god.  That is OK and good with me.   They don’t make a religion out of it, it is their faith and with it they do great things.   Another way to say it is faith guides your actions, religion forces actions on others.   If you have questions of comments on my views of this , please just write me or comment and I will talk with you, but I need to move to the next point here.  

One thing the author of the post I hope you will read ( and watch the video as I thought it funny )is how often we just take things for granted and don’t think about them, the reasons why they are, or the real object of them.   We just go with the flow, it is has been that way so long, or our emotions have been played so well we did not notice the real truth behind the veneer of what we are shown.   This post brings out a truth that I failed to connect to even with all my forced bible readings and chapel times.  Thanks and I hope to hear from you all soon, enjoy the post, I did.  Hugs

‘Thank Thor for this’: Texas GOP congressman brutally mocked for his ‘so help me God’ bill

Filed under: Creator, News, Political, Religion — Scottie @ 12:33

I add two comments from the article below.  This is both important and serious.   As state we do not live in a theocracy, we do not have religious law, and for good reasons.  However how do these people get elected with out knowing how our government works, what our laws are, and why do they try so hard to destroy the very things that give us success.    Freedom for only one group of people is freedom for none.   Hugs

‘Thank Thor for this’: Texas GOP congressman brutally mocked for his ‘so help me God’ bill.

“The astounding ignorance and bigotry displayed by his brazen presentation of this proposed wretched sectarian legislation is literally mind-ripping,” Weinstein said. “Not only does it viciously savage United States constitutional religious protections afforded all American citizens, including members of the U.S. military, it also provides an unparalleled bonanza of propaganda for our fundamentalist Islamic enemies such as Isis, the Taliban and Al Qaeda. Additionally, it enrages our Islamic allies and utterly desecrates and destroys military unit cohesion, good order, morale and discipline. The United States Congress should at the very least censure this constitutionally derelict villain and universally despicable human being.”

“I am an American veteran,” wrote Patrick Restivo. “I took an oath to defend the constitution of this great country from ALL enemies foreign and domestic. You sir are dangerously close to becoming an enemy of the constitution for suggesting that the rights of citizens be violated by trying to impose your narrow religious views on the brave service members who defend us all. We do have freedom FROM religion and if you try to take it away, we WILL fight back. If you want to live in a theocracy then renounce your U.S. citizenship and go join ISIS and be with the rest of your kind, you traitor.”

Truth. http://truth-has-a-liberal-bias.tumblr.com/post/105543423298/positive-nature-only-after-the-last-tree-has

“Only after the last tree has been cut down. Only after the last river has been poisoned. Only after the last fish has been caught. Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten.”

― Cree Indian Prophecy

 I wish I could give better credit to the web site I found this on.  However it simply wont let me.   The truth is the native Indians were here and had a thriving society before we forced our way in and took it from them.  Nothing can change that.   The wonderful thing is that the decedents of those people are willing to share their culture with us, if we were only willing to listen.   Sadly too many of our people hold on to bigotry and fail to see the wisdom of those who came before us.   Hugs
