Be a non-believer

For those of you out there who just can’t get the feeling of not believing in a supernatural, omniscient, and omnipotent creator in you, I recommend you watch this:


And hopefully, by the end of the video, you’re going to be convinced why you shouldn’t seriously believe in such deities. I’d take it if you believe those deities (just as I do) when you read comic books, or fantasy novels, but in real life? Get real. There are a lot more non-believers in the world (especially among the educated and in the academe) than people would guess, or would like to believe. It’s just that, for non-believers in power to remain in power, they (sadly) have to not acknowledge the fact that they don’t believe in supernatural creator/s just to retain their position/job.

A bit of a warning though, the video lasts an hour. But for me, the rational enlightenment and professor Dawkin’s witty humor (time and time again) more than woke me up till 4am in the morning. (^)___(^)

For those of you who are still undecided, or for those of you who have already decided not to believe in a God, you can read prof. Dawkin’s latest book: “The God Delusion”. Read the reviews, I assure you it will be a most intellectually rewarding read, in a very rational way.

Atheists assemble!

    I like the delivery, bro (the endorsement, that is).
    At some point, I think it’s a good start to promote atheism in such a way. But I don’t think most people (that I know of) would simply shift into believing or admit that they believe in atheism by just viewing a video or reading a book (though I think Dawkins have made his point/s rational and clear).

    Unfortunately for us, too much schism have been stressed against such belief. Even if rationalism and/or relativism is employed, I still find it hard to for us to cut through. As you are aware, religion have successfully led many people in the dark.

    I was thinking on how we could address the many problems of conveying the rationality of atheism or at least raise their consciousness about the problems of believing in an authoritative, sky-dwelling, genocidal old man.

    We may be able to vividly depict the problems of religion, but considering the sheer mass of mixed cultures, temperaments, differences in point of views, tolerances and so on, it would be hard even for rationalism to seep through, as a lot of people are not so porous. But i don’t believe it’s impossible.

    Men (and/or women) who promote religion are daring enough to take huge leaps in social scenes with hoaxes to answer hopelessness with no proof, no reason; just pure abstractions. And a lot of people buy that kind of shit. Intellectual reward is not as good of a bounty as the “spiritual reward” they get from hoaxes. You were right (as I think) to call upon fellow atheists to assemble and express what they truly believe in. But then again, we have an issue of individual security. (most likely our own government won’t protect us since this nation is a catholic hub) And we can’t simply rely on the sovereignty of the law and of the constitution. Besides that, there are a lot of “San Lorenzo Ruiz” out there. I still have more reasons why we should think of ways to overcome these sort of problems, but for now, I rest my case.

    Well, at least you have one solution. That is, to publish your ideas on the web anonymously. It’s a start.

    >>yes I don’t think a lot of people will be converted to non-believers just by watching a video or reading a book, but it is a start. Moreover, what needs to be done is introversion. The web is a good place to start discussing this, in my opinion. Like what the excellent professor says, “Atheists uniting is like herding cats”. It’s not impossible though, as you said, but a lot of non-believing intellectuals are too pre-occupied with their career or are too busy protecting it.

    >>Unfortunately, yes this is true.
