We are all Muslims
We are all Muslims about most of the other religions, ideologies, philosophies or lack of, that societies have believed in, some of us just go one ideology further.
Having faith that there is are no God(s) is faith itself. It comes with all its luggage and tax. It has its zealots, and idiots. It also has its moderates and sensible pacifists........ Just like every faith in the world
Atheistic Zealots? Am I nuts? Could there be such a thing?
Look around you, it's everywhere... Truth is, no one can infer the meaning of life from science, philosophy or anything else for that matter...
We think we know... We have theories and models. We work really hard to prove them only to have them completely discredited and disproved a century, a decade, a year later.
Emm, Richard Dawkins called, and he wants his "steal quotes from Islam" book back
Dawkins, is a smart man, I have to give him that. He has everything that it takes to be a successful author. He charms the reader with his style, and for some weak minds, he can be very influential in defining the way and shape of plunder they will end up in.
Throw in there few fancy words about the big bang theory, evolution, the flat earth of the ancients and you have a believable concoction of lies, deceit, half truth, jumping illogically from one hoop to the other without having any basis, repeating the obvious in a flashy way Oh and don't forget completely embracing theories as the ultimate source of truth.
Theories that even the people who came up with them. Don't believe them, as much as the few idiots who follow blindly.
If there is one thing history has taught us, theologically or otherwise. It would be that those who don't learn history are doomed to repeat it. It doesn't matter which side they're on.
Those who are stupid enough to believe in ideas that haven't even been even properly vetted , are doomed to repeat what the Church engaged in during the dark ages.
I don't want to get on the Churches case that much. Little did they know at that time... I'm sure they did everything they did mostly with sincere hearts.
And today, I see many atheists slipping down that slippery slope. Where it ends, history says, deep in dark abyss. And theology tells us, that deep dark abyss is called hell.
There's no need to invoke that "You can't believe" god's existence or none existence card. Because for all philosophers throughout history. That has been the great challenge and not an someone like Dawkins is going to solve it. I know the "It's harder to prove the none existence of something". I agree, but to be absolutely certain that A god doesn't exist is a leap of faith on its own. One that even Dawkins ("God probably doesn't exist") nor more reasonable and vastly far more intelligent people like Stephen Hawkins ("I believe there is a god, but unlike the personal god that most humans think of"). Even those people didn't dare walk in that trap because scientifically speaking. We freakin don't know!
That little doubt that is the reminder of Everything that exists equals everything we know plus everything that we might know plus everything that we will never know. That last part will keep doubt in this noncausal equation, and doubt is the base of faith. Not certainty. Doubt.
Some people translate this doubt as faith, others as atheism.
But only fools are certain. (Qwaiderization)
If you're an atheist, congratulations. You're just as stupid as the rest of us... Sadly, you're ending in a bottomless pit of fire... Oh sorry, you don't believe in that.
