Our Obligation When We Are Free From Religion

We have an obligation to help others in our community of thought. We often times spend a great deal of it making jokes, being satirical or being ultra political and forget that we all have an obligation to truly be there to support each other and be encouraging to those that are just coming out of the delusion of religion.

I know I’m just as guilty when a lot of my writing comes from a place that is satirical and is sometimes demanding.

I’m at least trying to put something out there that will help others while they are going through the pendulum that swings back and fourth through their head while they are having a battle in their mind on whether they are a good person because they think and question things around them. This is going on while the people around them do not think or relate to anything they have to say and think they are the crazy one.  I can only relate to my own experience, but that’s the very short version.

Friends and family are to preoccupied with talking about the weather, dancing with the stars or the latest thing in the news. It’s mental torture to people who crave intellectual conversation. Having been there, I would say that is how it felt for me overcoming religion- mental torture on a daily basis for years.

The golden rule for life is ‘do unto others as you would have them do unto you’.  This saying has been hijacked by religion BUT is the true foundational moral obligation one takes away from when religion when the indoctrination of the mind is finally broken. All of you that have also gone through this will understand where that principal comes from without a doubt and relate to it the same way.

You wish, when first freed, you were really taught this way of thinking while growing up and you don’t feel as if you would have been such an asshole to others when you were a religious dumb-bot because you were so morally superior in your mind at that time from programing.

It is my moral obligation to give back to others that are going through this process. Hopefully to help them shorten the battling with their self while becoming a post theist.

When you see what kind of person you were when you were a part of that vernacular you often don’t like what you see at first with respect to yourself. Your true self image is one that you have to gain true perspective on, not the one projected to you from others that are not inside of you and are not you.

We owe it to our fellow man to leave behind a world where thought still exists so we can evolve to a place of new exploration and discover beyond this world. Using our thoughts to pursue exploration of subjects that will leave behind a heritage for mankind, such as exploring space like Louis and Clark explored the US. Our minds should be used for thoughts such as these rather than a pendulum of non thought meant to keep us selfishly constantly thinking about ourselves.

We are what makes the world and the world around us, not an invisible force and not blind faith. If we leave behind more people thinking the counter thought process, this will result in the the human race De-evolving even faster then the film comedy Idiocracy.

Take a look around you now. I’m very surprised we don’t have a sports drink in our water fountains all ready. “You know it has electrolytes!! It doesn’t make the plants grow, water is for the toilette”.

Are we really far off from that? I think we are already here.  Just 40 years ago our baby boom parents actually cared about the world around them and wanted to see a better place left to all of us. I don’t know if they envisioned leaving us nothing but debt, fear, greed and delusion as a legacy. So to them, thank you so much!! Awesome job!! We are the only ones that can cause that to change. No one else is there. Just all of us. I think it’s to late for them as they believe in the lie they have created to much. So we are the ones that have to cause the change.

This is just a small reason we need to be supportive to others. I’m very grateful for people like Christopher Hitchens, Richard Dawkins and Reddit, because without them I don’t think I would have had the courage to read about the subject and free myself but to also write about it so as to help those that I know still live with the pain on a daily basis.

To them, hang in there! I promise it gets better and you will one day really know that too. Keep on reading, educating and becoming aware of who you truly are and don’t fear the process anymore. Embrace it as a journey and a part of who you are and your life story.

Better to have color in your story than have the story of ‘leave it to beaver’ as your life and memories. That really would be a lonely life and one very unfulfilled and wrought with remorse.  It’s also not a real life of contribution and when you finally break your dogma you will truly understand this at a very deep level and this will you give you true ambition to help others.

Never stop educating yourself and always ask “why?”.

Post Theist Mind Adventures

I have been visiting my parents the past couple of days and it became apparent to me just how much they still, after all this time, hold on to their religious beliefs after 59 years.  I’m afraid they will never let go of their beliefs no matter how calm you talk to them they are unable to see the trees beyond the forest it hurts them to much to think outside of what they have been taught.

After all of these years, I’m still very hesitant to fully let them into my lack of belief in God because I’m afraid I will end up letting them down or worse I will somehow hurt them in a mental way and as a conscience being I don’t want to hurt them.

Image From http://iamcooper.blogspot.com/2008_09_01_archive.html

I have made it clear to them in the nicest possible way my beliefs but it is obvious they believe it’s only a phase I’m going through and I will come back to their thinking, so I find it best to leave it that way.

I know it has to be hard for others sometimes when you are with family or friends that you dearly care about but you have come to the same conclusion that in this life time they will never see what you see forever clinging onto their belief no matter how many times it lets them down. They will always be apologists for their god, never being willing to realize it’s their decisions all along that are guiding them.

We, that have lived long enough, know that as time goes by life tends to throw us curve balls that we have not intended to be a part of our own life plans. We realize it’s not something or some force that is orchestrating these events-  it’s just life.  The best plan I have found after overcoming religion is no plan at all and to just enjoy life.  I’m not talking about carelessly and aimlessly wondering without any conscience thought. I’m talking about 90 day chunks of time work the best, not 5 & 10 year goal plans that will never turn out the way you thought. I find this method tends to only set you up for disappointment and a feeling of never being satisfied.  90 day chunks of time give you a good clear vision to see what is possible and to take real action toward the attainment of things you really want to accomplish in your life. It also reminds you that life is short and requires you still take the time to stop and smell the roses while going after things. It helps you to enjoy the process and the journey instead of just the end result.

If you are like most atheists, agnostics or non religious people you truly have a sense that what you do now is what counts and this is not a dress rehearsal like those preaching from the pulpit want you to believe. To Christians, its a dress up puppet show for god so he can see how you preform and he can collect money from you through out your stay on his ball of blue dust.

You have one life, live it well, take care of your self, help others in your community be something of value so as to inspire greatness in others so they can one day do the same.  It’s all of us that make this world and not the friends living in your head.

The day I fully got off of my knees and stopped being an apologist for Jesus is the day I began the process of putting my own life together brick by brick, piece by piece in a positive way.  I guess all of the time in the past I spent praying I finally realized it was no different than wasting time watching prime time television or dancing with the stars.  It’s a great distraction but the issues are still there until you face them yourself and take care of them without excuse or the invisible man as your guide, crutch or reason for not dealing with them head on.

A great example of this in the news in our culture today would be the ongoing natural disasters in Japan.  The religious side wants to take the time and pray and collect your money so a lightning bolt from the sky will take care of everything. Like tens of thousands of people killed, nuclear power plants melting down and millions of people displaced from their homes will just like magic go away. All from praying about it.

The funny thing is how much hypocrisy is in the religious view yet again with this issue. Last time I checked, do they not believe that god is all knowing all omnipotent?  So if that’s the case, would praying about this not be a futile cause and also smiting their god?  Or was this an accident by god where he was changing a bolt on Jupiter while giving it its 1 billion mile check up and by accident he dropped his wrench into the ocean thus creating the tsunami and earthquake?  That’s what praying is, a waste of time, and an act that justifies to the selfish individual an excuse they don’t have to really help anyone.  Because of course,  if you pray god will take care of all of it “nothing to worry about he’s got it”and as a christian you can now go back to your mocha latte, Chick-fil-a sandwich and your first century text book and hide.

So to you Christians, if this was an act of your god then he is a very sick man in need of a tremendous dose of lithium. It’s personal action that will help these people and that requires you getting off of your knees and for the first time helping others that really need you and not the imaginary friends that live inside of your head.  I’m afraid what we will instead see are churches using this tragedy to prey upon people through fear that god will not do this to them because he loves you and he needs checks to replace the wrench he dropped while working on Jupiter and he promises to wear a tool belt next time, so please forgive him because he forgives you.

Top Ten Creationist Arguments

The United Theocracy Of America

House concurrent Resolution 13 reaffirming `In God We Trust’ as the official motto of the United States and supporting and encouraging the public display of the national motto in all public buildings, public schools, and other government institutions is up for a vote.

http://friendlyatheist.com/2011/03/08/supreme-court-rejects-in-god-we-trust-lawsuit/ Great Article On This Subject.

” The whole foundation of Christianity is based on the idea that intellectualism is the work of the Devil. Remember the apple on the tree? Okay, it was the Tree Of Knowledge. ” You eat this apple, your going to be as smart as God. We can’t have that.”

– – Frank Zappa

We are already starting to see the signs that we are living in a theocracy in the United States in 2011. An example of this recently is the supreme court not even being willing to take the case of ‘In God We Trust’ on our currency even though our original slogan for our country was “E Pluribus Unum” which is Latin for “One from many” or “One from many parts” and was changed in the 1950’s.

Our original moto makes complete sense and is what our country’s real intention was all about- working together as many parts putting together the whole for all of us to prosper and move ahead in thought, growth, technology and science for our survival and the good of humanity for generations to come. Not to stay put in a box of first century dead thought and never move ahead.

Now it’s much deeper than just currency. Congress wants to make ‘In God We Trust’ the official moto of our country.  This means so much more than the already despicable statement on our currency. This means this statement will exist on all of our government buildings including schools and every local and state municipality in every town and city across this county.

Yet here we have congress dictating to us what we should believe in and what our country’s motto should be. Sorry Congressman Randy Forbes- we all don’t trust in God especially a large percentage of us that live in this country. We trust in each other to do the right thing and we gave up our imaginary friends, such as Santa and the ghost that lived under our bed, when we were 6 years old. It’s intellectually insulting that a member of congress would tell all of us ‘ in delusion and an imaginary friend we trust’ over our original moto that truly transcends what this nation is about.

We are at the point of setting a new precedent in the United States where we are no longer a secular nation but a theocracy based on an invisible man in the sky and no longer a place of  real thought. We should, at that point, just shred the Constitution and all have a copy of the first century hand book of the christian world, because that is where this slippery slope is taking us.

We can’t take this lightly anymore and just be respectful of other people’s mental lapses in reality, because if we keep heading in this direction this nation will be back to a place of burning witches at the stake and scientific thought will cease to exist as we know it. Instead it will be replaced with the fairy tale of creationism, unicorns and the teaching we live on a 10.000 year old planet formed in 7 days being the norm in education.  We have to fight them at every level we can in the courts and uphold our constitution from this insanity.  Remember we are dealing with the intelligence of troglodytes unable to use the other functions of the brain, only that which has been hypnotized in delusion and fear.

It’s becoming very apparent the current congress is going to continue to overlook separation of church and state and shove god on us without our consent.  We are not a ‘one religion one thought nation’ but yet we have representatives that now think it’s OK to sell their brand of morality to the rest of us, not to say they haven’t from the beginning. The whole reason for the separation clause in the constitution is to help protect minorities from being oppressed and attacked by groups, such as Christians, that consistently play the minority card while in fact representing the majority of thought, especially in the southern US.

A false statement that is constantly echoed across America is that we are a democracy. We are a representative republic that was formed to protect state rights and minorities. The term minority has been twisted also to mean the color of ones skin when it means also in thought, not just race.

If we were a democracy then we would live in majority rule, which seems not very far off looking at our current direction and not the best of ideas. We as a 20% minority, making up 70,000,000 to be exact, are a very large part of this country and one of the largest minorities in the US. We need to be as vocal about what we stand for exactly how the other side is, if not louder. Remember the squeaky wheel gets the grease. We can’t sit back and watch as a group of delusional people are trying to exact their laws on us so we will all submit to Christian rule and thought.

The new atheist movement is starting to closely resemble the beginning stages of the homosexual movement because in some ways they suffer the same discrimination’s in the work place and rejections of family members through ignorance. A tremendous amount of people are still hiding in the closet for fear of what people might think of them or the fear of being ostracized by family and friends.

I want to ask this question- what God are they asking us to trust in anyway?  Thor, Buddha, Allah, Ra?  We all know the answer to this is Jesus.  We have congressman and senators that are now effectively re-writing the truth about the founding fathers and claiming we are a nation founded on Christianity.  Nothing could be farther from the truth, the majority of our founding fathers were deists or atheists. If you don’t believe it look it up. Don’t just take my word for it.

We are a nation founded on secularism. Freedom was formed to leave the church, not run to it, and yet here we are again. Christianity is a cancer that once it gets into the mind requires a tremendous dose of logic based chemotherapy to eradicate. The very reason so many people left England to begin with at the birth of this nation was to vacate state sponsored tyrannical religion and live in a nation where people could believe in what they saw fit while being left alone in their beliefs and not affecting others in the process. The cancer of non thought is seeping deeper into this nation. At the same time this is going on in our country we have multiple state houses taking up the abortion issue again as well.

Under a law signed by Gov. Dennis Daugaard of South Dakota last week, women who seek an abortion will have to wait 72 hours, undergo two visits to Doctors, be checked for unspecified physical and mental risk factors, and be proselytized by an antiabortion counseling center before they can have any procedure take place. This is a state with just one center that offers abortions, which are performed by an out-of-state doctor who flys in a couple of times a month. In other words, a few days of waiting could add up to a lot more.  The goal is to get women to wait as long as possible so women will have to have the child because it will be to far into the trimester to perform the procedure.  http://www.politicsdaily.com/2011/03/22/south-dakota-enacts-tough-abortion-law/ .  Common sense would tell you this is a huge violation of Roe V Wade and a set back for women and and women’s rights.

The irony of all of it is there is not one place in the bible that even mentions abortion. This is another make believe delusion of christian’s and they propagate it through emotional lies, bumper stickers and feel good campaigns designed to prey on peoples’ emotion.  It’s funny how people who believe in this nonsense don’t even read their own book to verify the information, but just take it at face value because their pastor or neighbor told them it was so.  Imagine what’s going to happen when they make it illegal to be a non-believer because, without doubt, that is their goal. Their reason will be because the mind is a fetus and by questioning god we are committing murder on the invisible man that lives in their heads.

When we make our country about something all of us don’t and can never agree on how are we not heading back into the same direction and reason we formed this nation to begin with?  We are yet again repeating history where a group of lunatic fringe delusional thinkers somehow think they have the right to have dominion over all of us because of fairy tales and beliefs from fantasy and works of fiction.

There has never been a happy ending with this story and it ultimately leads to some kind of violent exchange and then we all have to go back, reset the clock and start over again until the crazy’s come together yet again to destroy freedom of thought and individualism.  I’m not in anyway advocating violence because we all know who enjoys that the most- our closed minded non thinking religious friends all in the name of jesus.  Rational people don’t need to have power over others to survive, that is the job of the weak of mind.

Where I am going with all of this is simple, all of the future children of this nation are about to be born into this nut house, and if we already have this many manipulative non thinking adults imagine what it’s going to be like in the USA when all of these non thinking  fearful ADHD medicated zombie children grow up.

The mind of a child is fragile and open to what goes in it and if they are taught that fantasy such as Harry Potter and other types of entertainment are evil when they are not even real to begin with but unicorns and the invisible man are what we should trust in most. How would you expect they would act in the future when approaching other topics such as environmental, political or social realms?  These future religious fanactics will carry their stuffed animal with them and imprison anyone that does not believe in their invisible friend, stoning the people who do not believe, all the while praying for their sins.

The majority of their parents are the very same adults that believe all of the hyperbolic emotion and fear that Fox News sells them and now they are passing on the same illogical point of view to innocent children that can’t even distinguish the difference between what is real and what is make believe. It’s an irony how Christians teach and preach so much hate against muslims on a daily basis when they act exactly the same way, minus wearing a berka, on Sundays in churches across America.

Does this give you in Europe and Canada a better point of view when we non believers share with you how much bullshit we deal with in the Southern United States and the country as a whole on a daily basis? We aren’t making this up or exaggerating like you think we are.

I don’t recall this crop of congress men and woman running for Jesus in 2010. They claimed they were running for cutting spending and freedom in Washington.  The conservative movement is all but gone and has been replaced with the Jesus party pretending to be republicans under the auspice of the tea party.  And just wait when the next election cycle comes around you won’t be able to tell the democrats from the republicans because they will all jump on this band wagon just as fast to get re – elected and maintain their status quoe.

Manipulation of the mind and emotions is far worse than physical abuse. That is not an avocation of any type of abuse; however, at least abuse in the physical can heal rather quickly.

Christians want to turn this into a post hybrid 1950’s nation hopped up on Zoloff and pain killers so they can control every thought and emotion.  I ask, with lack of thought like this going on in 2011 have we really changed that much from the dark ages? It’s certain if we stay on this path that is exactly where we will be again. When the church becomes the state, freedom will cease to exist and any past analysis of real history will show you the outcome this circumstance.

I’m sure after a diatribe like this I will be accused of being a militant, mean, baby hating atheist when in fact I would never advocate violence as a means for change. I advocate debate and standing up for what you believe in along with calling out bullshit where it deserves to be challenged.
