By the way I don't follow a monotheistic or Pantheistic belief either so you have really really confused me.
Or that people can do evil things whether they believe in gods or not?
History has proven that last statement of YOURS that you seem to have attributed to me to be more than plainly true.
Either way - ridiculous position to take.
First one is not a position I took or wrote about, as shown, second well is a fact.
Religion and gods are easily understandable and dismissed
No there is a broad generalisation to say the least!
- its that simple, they are a human creation.
Like Humans? a Human creation?
If you need to believe in fictitious fantasies to help you get on with life
What fantasies have I propagated?
How do you know anything about my life to judge if I need such a belief system to "get on with it" or not anyhow?
Have you observed me both having such a Fantasy and not getting on with it, and having one and doing so? Vice Versa???
to provide you with morality and ethical structure as your to completely incompetent to do this on your own,
Are you judging me... sounds like a lecture from a Monotheistic Basher to say the least... Ive had people knock my door and tell me I need their
ethical structure and morality imprints with books and magazines before with very similar tone.... lol... my guidance is my Heart and is it good and
loving or not thank you. That is within me and from no outside source, though I may take guidance on how to make it more accurate.
to maintain a sense of direction and community without the need to rely on destructive, oppressive systems of human control
Yep pretty much sums up my life after the age of 13....
- (yes just as nazism was) then that this is your choice.
I am sorry are you placing me in the context of Nazisim because you have made false judgements and criticisms of me with no knowledge of me, and a
very blatant knee jerk posting without reading my posts fully first?
It's Ok I understand you seem to have got angry and typed away quickly without seeing the context and sarcasm of my post you replied to.
I forgive you. I am not a Nazi though
But have the decency to acknowledge what you are doing, how wrong it is and that it is not true - but you just need it.
What am I doing?
What is wrong with it?
What is not true?
What do I need?
Stalin and Hitler at least had the decency to admit what they were doing was not in the best interests of many beyond their own kind,
Am I of a different kind to you?
My Kind is humanity....
....the worst thing about religious nutters
is that they inflict this evil on the world but then wont eve acknowledge its wrong. Thats the worst part.
I agree totally, they believe they there ego the I is special compared to the rest of us, is a divine plane etc, just like the Socio-paths and
psychopaths, all believe themselves "special" or "chosen" to above others.
As I said in an earlier post on this thread... but in a totally different context... all the above roads lead to Rome... but a Dark Rome a Rome of
Hell and madness not the Rome I originally alluded to
(I am not meaning or mentioning Christianity/Catholicism in the Rome thing just an allegory)
