I wonder what’s going on with this classification of Christianity as a disease. I’m pretty sure, with the way they describe it, this also applies to all religions as well. I mean, what are we supposed to say of the ancient man who first started to explain the world? That he was insane? This desire to explain our existence is a natural part of man, and the first man certainly felt it. And even today, if a man had no concept of today’s understanding of science and the natural world, if he were hidden away from the rest of humanity and left to explain things on his own, he would probably come up with the same thing as the ancient man: that God or gods formed the world in some manner. Are we to call this natural state of man crazy, insane, and all other sorts of things? One would have to view the whole history of the world as some kind of insane roller coaster ride that came to its highest peak around the time of Rome when Christ came into the world. Then the Catholic Church came and wrote this insanity into stone and held the world prisoner until the Renaissance. And even then it was just a prelude to a little bit of sanity. Nevermind what our Reformation brothers were doing nearby. They were just holding on to insanity. It wasn’t until the enlightenment when we could really begin to throw off the shackles of craziness and even then it was only a few people who did. And today, the world is still about 80% insane, but we expect this whole religious thing to die off soon.
The non-religious are calling religion a mental deformity, an abnormal state. The ancient and the modern man who do not subscribe to this modern naturalistic science mumbo jumbo are just insane. But the problem here is that, if anything, the modern naturalist is the abnormal one. The ancient and modern man are doing what comes natural. They are holding onto a purpose for the world, and can’t let it go without some modern education into abnormality. Then they can leave their insanity and join the vocal majority who dictate the new “normal.” Yes, let’s call an abnormal state a normal one and insult most every human in history right down to the last man standing who still intuitively sees purpose. That’s the best way to honor our dead relatives, not to mention our mothers who took us to church so that we wouldn’t turn out like blockheads.
An atheist said, “Reality arbitrates…you rely on reality to justify your belief”
This just so highly demonstrates the depths of delusion that some atheists have sunk to. At some point, the rocks, the trees, and the birds in the sky must have sat us all down and taught us the steps to the scientific method. The flowers think and even speak. The keys I lost told me that they were on the table when I was looking for them. Why appeal to unseen authorities like God when we have millions of little inanimate gods among us who become animated enough to guide us to the holiest of holies where the eternal insistence upon independent verification has trapped us in circular logic. But, nevermind the circle. It came from the rocks, and is therefore right. The rocks have arbitrated, and we are their intellectually begotten sons who have only previously gone astray by trading in millions of material gods for a single immaterial one. Let us draw near to the courts of the flowers. Let us behold their beauty and enquire in their halls of justice which of us is right. Neither shall we waste time with our own cognitive abilities unless it be to receive the admonition of the rhododendrons. Sing praises, for we all dwell in the temple of the gods and have found in the shimmering mirrors of all physical phenomena eternal relations capable of joy and suffering just as we and who have graciously summed us up and summed themselves up in a single principle: the practicality of the scientific method.
I wonder if the atheists really hear themselves when they speak or if they’ve been listening to each other for so long they just don’t think about it anymore.
Thoughts from La Encantada (It’s a mall folks)
I thought we were in an economic recession. No one could tell from the group of stores I visited today. Items were so expensive that I wonder how these stores stay in the black. A little black dress costs $800. A shirt with barely any fabric on it costs $180, and that was the cheapest we could find. Who would buy these things. I know I don’t have the money, and yet hundreds of people were walking around like they were completely comfortable with the prices. (There were a lot of white people) I bet if the store made one sale a day they could close the store and go home. The stuff is that expensive! Ridiculous! Sometimes I think the whole economic recession was made up so the country would fall into a panic. I tell you, the more power and trust we put into our government, the more deceived we are.
On the plus side, I saw a lot of unique items. These were inexpensive but still interesting.
This is hot sauce folks!
This was very good root beer. Less carbonation and more syrup. Yum!
I couldn’t pass this one up. Lucy… you’ve got some ‘splainin’ to do!
