What do religions do that Humanists seem reluctant to do?

They go out and convert.They go out and spread the word.

Humanists?I would say, less so.There seems to be an attitude that humanists should not force their views on others and basically wait for ppl to come to you.

This has to change.

Religious Evangelicals (of many beliefs) go out upon the High street and stand for hours preaching from their Holy books . Holy books that are full of myths, half truths and lies.They will pass them off as truth and attempt to win people over.

We, atheists and Humanists, should be out on the street also .Challenging the lies with evidence, their faith, with our facts …

We need more Critical thinkers, not less.

There is no God .

Posted: December 28, 2014 in Uncategorized

A critical review .

I find no fault with these below  except with The Theory of God .

—————————————-

An All-Virtuous Being cannot exist°°

1 -God is ( by definition )a being than which no greater being can be thought .
2 -Greatness includes the greatness of virtue .
3 -Therefore, God is a being than which no being could be more virtuous .
4 -But virtue involves overcoming pains and danger .
5 -Indeed, a being can only properly said to be virtuous if it can suffer pain or be destroyed .
6 -A God that can suffer pain or is destructible is not one than which no greater being can be thought .
7 -For you can think of a greater being, one that is no suffering and indestructible.
8 -Therefore, God does not exist .

Worship and Moral Agency

1 -If any being is God, he* must be a fitting object of worship .
2 -No being could possibly be a fitting object of worship, since worship requires the abandonment of one’s role as an autonomous moral agent .
3 -Therefore, there cannot be any being who is God .

The Problem of Evil

1 -If God exists, then the attributes of God are consistent with the existence of Evil .
2 -The attributes of God are not consistent with the existence of evil .
3 -Therefore, God does not and cannot exist .

A Perfect Creator Cannot Exist

1 -If God exists, then he is perfect .
2 -If God exists, then he is the creator of the universe .
3 -If a being is perfect, then whatever he creates must be perfect .
4 -But the universe is not perfect .
5 -Therefore, it is impossible for a perfect being to be the creator of the universe .
6 -Hence, it is impossible for God to exist .

A Transcendent Being cannot Be Omnipresent

1 -If God exists, then he is transcendent ( I.e., outside space – time ).
2 -If God exists, he is omnipresent .
3 -To be transcendent, a being cannot exist anywhere in space .
4 -To be omnipresent, a being must exist everywhere in space .
5 -Hence it is impossible for a transcendent being to be omnipresent .
6 -Therefore, it is impossible for God exist .

A Personal Being Cannot Be Nonphysical

1 -If God exists, then he is nonphysical .
2 -If God exists, then he is a person ( or a person all being ).
3 -A person ( or personal being ) needs to be physical .
4 -Hence, it is impossible for God to exist .

The Paradox of Omnipotence

1 -Either God can create a stone that he cannot lift, or he cannot create a stone that that he cannot lift .
2 -If God can create a stone that he cannot lift, then he is not omnipotent .
3 -If God cannot create a stone that he cannot lift, then he is not omnipotent .
4 -Therefore, God is not omnipotent .

———————————

A Theory of God

1 -God is the creator and preserver of the universe .
2 -God is the architect of the structure of the universe and the author of the laws of nature .
3 -God steps in whenever he wishes to change the course of events, which may include violating his own laws as, for example, in response to human entreaties .
4 -God is the creator and preserver of life and humanity, where humans are special in relation to other life forms .
5 -God has endowed humans with immaterial, eternal souls that exist independent of their bodies and carry the essence of a person’s character and selfhood .
6 -God is the source of morality and other human values such as freedom, justice and democracy .
7 -God has revealed truths in scripture and by communicating directly to select individuals throughout history .
8 -God does not deliberately hide from any human being who is open to finding evidence for his presence .

The observable effects of such a God may be expected to have are still testable by the normal, objective process of Science .

The Scientific Argument against the existence of God

1 – Hypothesize a God who plays an important role in the universe .
2 -Assume that Hod has specific attributes that should provide objective evidence for his existence .
3 -Look for such evidence with an open mind .
4 -If such evidence is found, conclude that God may exist .
5 -If such objective evidence is not found, conclude beyond a reasonable doubt  that a God with these properties does not exist .

* when ‘ he ‘ is used , please assume he / she / it .

Additional –

A Nonexistent Bible God is Perfect .

A -The most perfect Bible God is the one that does not exist .
B -Ancient Humankind required the Bible God for the regulation of society .
C -Ancient Humankind created Bible God to meet that requirement.
D -The true creator of the Biblical God is the ancient human mind .
E -Society changes with the needs of progressive Humankind .
F -The Bible God created by Ancient Humankind is imperfect .
G -Progressive Humankind has no need for Bible God .

First of all , Welcome .
Welcome to Reason , Reality and Logic .Free from Faith and a delusional mindset .

Many people may think – okay , I don’t believe in god , but what do I believe in now ? What direction do I go ? What are my new guidelines for social interaction ?

Well , that’s the benefit of Freethought . You can decide . You no longer have a 1st Century deity intruding on your mind .

Atheism is only the Gateway to Reality .( My quote )

Atheism is a single thing . You have looked around for the evidence for a god or gods and found it lacking . You have looked at the Holy books ( the claims for a godhead ) and found them miserable , pathetic and poorly written .You have no belief that there’s a god .

And that’s it .Atheist .Atheism .

It doesn’t make you a liberal , pro-choice or gay tolerant .These are things tacked onto the word atheist .
You can be a right wing atheist or a racist atheist .
You can be a communist atheist or a pro-life atheist .
Its up to you .
I chose to be a SecularHumanist . I agree with liberal ideals . I walked thru’ that gateway and so can you . Atheism is a transitional term .

Once thru’, you come to Humanism . It is the premise that morality is a matter for discussion and decision in a society , not a divine imposition from up beyond the clouds .
You may find that you become less intolerant of Gay, Lesbian , bisexual and transgender lifestyles .You may think that the giving of blood is a fine thing to do . You may feel no unease at talking to people who have a faith other than the one you once held .

Humanism is an ethical outlook that says each individual is responsible for choosing their values and goals : that being considerate towards others is a worthy thing to be doing . Humanism is about thoughtful living .

No sectarian divisions
No supernaturalism
Treating people with respect

It is a positive outlook and it is never too late to come to it .
