Call me a hippocrit or whatever you wish. Yes I am a member of the Danish People’s Church, I was confirmed, and got my son baptised… But I do not believe in God or have any kind of faith in anything supernatural, regardless of how tempting it might be to worship FSM (The Flying Spaghetti Monster). I am a traditionalist and I have nothing against having rituals. Rituals and traditions are helping with creating stability in our society. These rituals or traditions does not require that you believe in anything supernatural or all powerful. You do not need to pray or worship anything to sit together at a table, share gifts and have a nice dinner with your entire family.
It is not like Christianity invented Christmas or Easter. These were pagan traditions that Christianity assimilated into their belief system.
Making the transition for the peasants much easier.
I know that many atheists share my views on traditions, even Richard Dawkins has mentioned that he is a traditionalist.
It gets bad when you’re required to change your life to please some imaginary being that you have blind faith in. When you speak out to the public about how bad they are not for following your imaginary friends rules.
You may claim how much you will that your imaginary friends is real, how can millions of people be wrong. That does not change the fact that there are no proof or evidence for God or anything supernatural.
You may claim that I have blind faith in science and that ID (Intelligent Design) is an alternative choice for evolution. Even though it was dismissed by the US supreme court in the Dover v. Miller case and was labelled as nothing other than Creationism.
You may believe Kent Hovind, Kirk Cameron, or even Bananaman (Ray Comfort). Even though when these Christians try to explain themself scientificly they have been found to outright lie or just putting out wrong info.
Google is being clouded with Christian sites that tries to get scientific sites lower page rank, so that when someone searches for evolution, they will get into a Christian site that lies about evolution.
A Danish example is www.oplevjesus.dk that in their Evolution section has a box that says, “What does the smart people say about evolution.” And they are quoting random scientists that are not even talking about evolution, but about abiogensis (the origin of life). Evolution is about how life behave, not its origins. Evolution does not deal with cosmology (big bang) either or radio metric dating (eg. C-14 dating). Evolution are observations of species’ development and natural selection. Adapting to their enviroment.
Do not tell me that religion is more good than bad.
Then you have been misguided by the religious agenda. Just look at Youtube, Google, US Lobbyism. Creationism/ID is gaining ground because people are blinded by their faith.
Sarah Palin is a creationist, and several million people would vote for her, because of her biblical view on life.
You can create groups that help people in life, instead of false promises of an afterlife. Making people live in a delusion is not the answer.
Lets remove the blashpemy paragraph from the Danish laws. Also lets hope that the UN does not pass their international blasphemy law.
Atheists and secular humanists should cry out now, make their voices heard.
Why is religion so intollerant against any criticism, why can’t atheistic groups have billboards where they tell people they are not alone in the lack of belief.
Feel free to comment.
… that is what Kent Hovind are trying to convience creationists. Anyway I prefere using lead. The fact is that I have been at the doctor’s again and my back has not improved.
Now I am waiting for an appointment at the hospital so I can get my back X-rayed and figure out what is wrong with me.
And hopefully they can treat it and I can be painless agian.
Kent Hovind is still wacky, hehe I love that danish evangalists are using him as an example of “scientific creation”.
Take care guys and girls.
If I should name the best RPG of this year, then it would be Dragon Age: Origins. It is such a beautiful and delicious game. It made me stick to the monitor and litteraly become one with my chair. I played it non-stop for 13 hours (yes I am a geek) and I was not bored for a second. So far I can see I got plenty to do in the game.
Which excites me because a good RPG (Roleplaying Game) should have a good history, a good lore, and gameplay that is not buggy.
Since Bioware have been RPG making wizards for the past decade or so they have been massproducing quality RPGs from start to now. Games such as Baldurs Gate, StarWars Knights Old the Old Republic and recently Mass Effect (not including Dragon Age as the most recent.) They are working on their first MMO, StarWars the Old Republic MMO and Mass Effect 2 is in the oven.
But before they are released I got plenty of hours, and replay in this game. This is going to be like KOTOR and Baldurs Gate for me, a game that has huge replay value.
I got work this weekend and picking up my son this Sunday so the gaming is going to be cut to a near minimum, but heck how I did enjoy my spree with DAO (Dragon Age: Origins). Not saying that I am not going to play it anymore, just going to take it easy. Hehe got to control the “drug”.
If you got a PC, Xbox 360 or Playstation 3 and you like RPGs, this is a game you must pick up, there is no discussion.
