Good people are everywhere

Posted on July 14, 2015 by quashnsa

Live this life as a good person. There is no need to bring religion into it. If you are good in this life so that you will be rewarded in the next life because you religion tells you that is the correct way, you will be disappointed when you find out that you failed. Be a good person in this life, period. The foundation for every god/religion/belief holds to that tenant--be a good person.

Good people are everywhere, regardless of religious belief or lack of belief. In America, you can believe what you want to believe. Please don't judge others based on your religion alone. You don't have to fight for your god. Your god should be big enough to fight his/her own battle. You don't need to bring the fight here to earth.

Musing on Religion

Posted on August 11, 2014 by quashnsa

god creates everything, including satan and all of the other angels.

god is impotent to contain satan. nor can he defeat satan. two opposite poles that are equal in strength (that sounds a lot like natural order).

god creates adam and eve, no religion created.

adam and eve kicked out of eden after knowledge is obtained and original sin began.

adam and eve still dont create a religion from god to get back into eden, probably mad at being kicked out. no books of religion, nor eye witness accounts recorded of eden.

many generations go by, thousands of years pass, everyone able to trace ancestry back to adam and eve, yet no one creates a specific religion to god

out of one pair of people, all races, colors, and eventually all religions will come.

no interaction from god until, some random guy named abraham is spoken to by god (assuming it is the same god)

abraham told by god to sleep with maid--ishmael is born

abaraham back to wife--isaac is born

abraham kicks ishmael and mother out into wasteland (out of eden)

ishmael becomes father of islam (creating hatred of the brother).

isaac becomes father of judaism (creating hatred of the brother).

Using Logical Fallacy Against Creationists

Posted on July 08, 2014 by quashnsa

The problem I will begin putting forward to creationists who believe that their god created everything, is this:
I believe there is a greater god who created your god.

To which they must answer, "Impossible. There is nothing greater than my god."
I will retort with the common religious person's defense of, "Prove that there isn't a god who created your god."
This may transfer some idea of what it means to run up against a logical fallacy.

Any religious person does not disagree with my statement, that there is a greater god who created their god, is not a true religious person.
All gods from every modern religion define and defend their personal god a the source of everything.

If there is a god, does god still create today?

If god is the creator of everything, does he still create everything today? What is your answer?

The Golden Compass Controversy

ISBN: 978-0-440-23813-3

As with most people, I have chosen a side and need to weigh-in on the "Golden Compass" controversy. I am a atheist with a strong set of ethics. These ethics dictate that people should be allowed to make their own choices. I believe in the freedoms that this country was founded on. Freedom of speech (spoken, written, expression, etc.) is one of our greatest freedoms.

Morals (Moral, Morality) - personal behaviors based on individual principles (or belief) of right and wrong.
Ethics (Ethical) - a set of morals defined by a single guiding principle (or belief) that affects personal criteria for determining right and wrong.
