Rejecting Religion

Think 9 Comments 27

Hour 2:       As atheists go public with their identity, non-believers are becoming an increasingly powerful political and social faction. We’ll talk this hour about atheists’ impact with University of North Texas professors David A. Williamson and George Yancey. Their new book is There Is No God: Atheists in America (Rowan & Littlefield).

    Because religion has proven detrimental to an intelligent civilization while having black-holed too many resources that could’ve been used for humanitarian, scientific, infrastructure, medical, and (space) explorative purposes.

    It feels like the authors here are trying to frame the discussion of atheists (a small group of them, at that) in the language of religion, which is an inherent contradiction.

    This very thoughtful show helped me understand more clearly why I resist the progressive label while also agreeing with some of their causes. I believe in God and hope the atheist will allow those of us who do to remain in some “left leaning” politics. They seem to be becoming very intolerant to hear from Christians, though.
    Stereotypes prevail wherever humans are. (sigh)

    Of course, no one is an atheist, way down deep, and that is where it counts. Knowledge of the Divine is innate basic knowledge. For instance, most atheists pray. Most atheists in unguarded moments thank God in moments of joyous relief or cry out to God when in distress. Atheism is an exercise in self-deception. That is why they get so excited when someone reminds them of what they are attempting to suppress.
