Nice, I dont look much into who says what, personal agenda s and such. I just take the information I find and build an opinion of that slice of
It's definitely a good point, though we are lucky to have lived, those that have lived are not always so lucky.
I not long ago watched The Unbelievers, it's a good documentary, worth watching. Insightful.
Attacking beliefs is easy, they are not (entirely) tangible objects unless
you believe in them. Pull that rug out from under people, and they
will grasp for another rug. The devotees of Dawkins have adopted, through him, "atheism". That is no less intangible than the rest of them
you believe in it. The absolute truth is that we just don't know, that question, without exception, gets answered after death according
to every source I can decipher, hence why religion emerges, to show us how to die, to ease us in that passage into the unknown, our consciousness
demands it and our subconscious responds by reconnecting to the/a source (I don't know the "what", "why" or "how", but can respect and understand from
my own experiences with psychosis), but only when we are good and ready, having lost all fight.
I don't see any shame in simply admitting that we "don't know" and leaving it at that, allow people to make up their own minds and fill the spaces as
they see fit, as long as it isn't harming anyone...and
that really is the crux of the matter, because this "either or" bull# does harm people,
even the seemingly benign and rational perspective that Dawkins promotes is based on closing his mind to numerous unanswered questions about the
universe and it's genesis.
