The Abrahamic religions infecting our modern world rank us; like the real numbers, some lesser, some greater. Men greater than women greater than children. Married greater than single. Parent greater than childless. Heterosexual greater than homosexual. I prefer to see humanity as complex; an unordered set. None greater, none lesser.
I believe in progressing beyond Bronze Age foolishness. I believe in a humanistic, progressive society.
I had a long Facebook conversation with an old highschool friend today. He’s an xtian preacher, and he asked me if someone had hurt me to cause me to abandon christ. Foolish man. I explained to him that I had “abandoned” christ because I require evidence for extraordinary claims, and there is no evidence for xtianity. No one hurt me; I am not damaged. I am rational, and I refuse to accept a belief system simply because my parents did.
I’ve undertaken here to explain my beliefs, and their sources. Stay tuned.
