Help this blog out!

Hey guys, Im trying really hard to keep up with this blog and keep it on track, but I’m losing a bit of the passion for it…

Please, help keep the positive secularism going by submitting posts, sending asks, sending in messages/asks with suggestions on topics or post ideas etc.

They can be texts, graphics, images, whatever! Positive Atheism should thrive here!

Do not underestimate yourself and all you can do

You are not so weak as to needing strength from a devine being.

You are already strong enough.

You make the choice to be strong and to get stronger.

You put the work in

You.

@mentally ill atheists who were told their atheism is a result of their mental illness: you’re wonderful and powerful and there’s nothing wrong with you

@mentally ill atheists who were told their mental illness is a result of their atheism:

We know you didnt choose your illness. Your illness is not your fault. You are wonderful and strong and you dont need theism to get through!

I guess my issue with organized religion is that they often only care about freedom of their religion and not those of other religions. That and I sometimes think part of the price to pay for freedom of religion is putting up with what you might consider blasphemy.

Emphasis on that first sentence.

“Some people have views of God that are so broad and flexible that it is inevitable that they will find God wherever they look for him. One hears it said that ‘God is the ultimate’ or ‘God is our better nature’ or ‘God is the universe.’ Of course, like any other word ‘God’ can be given any meaning we like. If you want to say that ‘God is energy,’ then you can find God in a lump of coal.”

Steven Weinberg, (Jewish and atheist) Nobel Prize-winning physicist.

“In God we trust” Is being promoted or forced onto public school walls.

8 states are supporting the marginalization of non-theist, polytheist, and monotheists who believe in a goddess rather than a god.

“These godly postings exclude and alienate the one-in-five students in our public schools who do not believe in god. And they’re meant to.These laws are not about patriotism, they’re about turning believers into insiders, and nonbelievers into outsiders. There’s nothing patriotic in undermining our nation’s secular Constitution.

Why do you think you can be good without god?

A. I’m a good person currently and I don’t believe a god exists.

B. I don’t believe that a god controls whether or not we have the strength to do good things and if one does then theyre clearly failing a lot of individuals.

C. I have yet to see a religion that doesnt support illogically violent punishments or “morals” that appear cruel, nor have I seen a religion that doesn’t contradict itself.

D. There are thousands of secular individuals who are currently good people.

E. I know for a fact that we has human beings have the capability to evolve and improve our understandings of whats right and wrong(and it is shown consistently through our history and progression). We have the capability to expand our perspectives and listen to others speak the harms that have been done to them and to correct/prevent those harms in the future.

F. There are other moral codes/guides that dont involve theism and are open to corrections and amendments unlike a holy script that is not open to amendent or was written hundreds or thousands of years ago and then translated/written in different versions an unimaginable number of times.

I am being the best person I can be, and I dont think a god is apart of that. I think it would be personally foolish of me to pick one specific version of one specific religion and hope its the right one and proceed to follow it without question as many demand.

I believe it would be irresponsible to allow myself to think that is going to make me a better person.

Im not the best I can be yet, but I work towards it everyday. Every opportunity to do some good I take. If someone speaks about their experiences I listen. I read. I allow myself to learn and leave my veiws open to change.

thedevilslilgirl:

it’s not that the bible needs to be taken so literally it’s a moral thing. stories written before science. ppl walkin in the dirt to new lands bored before tv and it’s a spiritual thing you atheist never understand. you just refuse to see what the faithful cant not. i need Catholicism cuz im an occultist(reverse Catholic) it’s good to have faith im saying we need to study it. as satanist youre supposed to learn and study not deny like atheist.

Personally speaking, I have never dismissed the bible for being too fantastic.

I have never dismissed it for talking animals or other supernatural scriptures(even if I dont believe them, that was never what made me dismiss it).

I dismiss the bible For its constant contradictions. For its cruelty and illogical “morality”. For its lack of evidence. And lastly, for the fact that its been translated and rewritten so many times and in so many different ways that it simply doesnt make sense to choose one and follow it.

If you believe that is wonderful for you, but please dont tell me why I dont.
