p-nullifidian comments on May 25, 2021:
Not all Biblical scholars. Some who approach the topic from a purely secular and historical point of view admit that the historicity of the person described in the Canon, all miracles aside, is dubious at best. Even if the guy existed, so what? One thing should be obvious, no deity ever interbred with a human girl to create a half-man, half-god with superpowers. In short, there is no such thing as a miracle.
"Political language.
p-nullifidian comments on May 24, 2021:
Ah, but in order to trigger that willingness, we must only be told that those people who we know nothing about are not like us and pose a threat. Throughout recorded history, whether across river, mountain range, continent or the sea, we have fought and killed 'the others' simply for being of a different tribe, clan, ethnicity, religion or nation. Our teachers are our genetic propensities to destroy that which we find disquieting. Those neanderthals couldn't coexist with us homo sapiens, so they had to be hunted down and destroyed. Those Catholics had to be reformed, or suffer the consequences. To the extent that we are less prone to violence in the 21st century than we have been in the past speaks to a broad willingness to embrace the 'better angels of our nature.'
By nature men are nearly alike; by practice, they get to be wide apart. --Confucius
p-nullifidian comments on May 24, 2021:
I disagree with this. By nature we are not alike, but our practices (or cultures) attempt to unite us. To quote the Great Agnositic: "Do we not know that there are no two persons alike in the whole world? No two trees, no two leaves, no two anything that are alike? Infinite diversity is the law. Religion tries to force all minds into one mold. Knowing that all cannot believe, the church endeavors to make all say they believe. She longs for the unity of hypocrisy, and detests the splendid diversity of individuality and freedom." Robert Green Ingersoll, Individuality, 1873

p-nullifidian comments on May 24, 2021:
The teachings and philosophy of the Buddha are, in my opinion, truer and more enlightened than those attributed in the Bible to Christ, but the very title of this book caused me, as a nullifidian, to cringe. Is secular Buddhism an oxymoron? It seems to me that Buddhism, with its monks, stories of miracles that the Buddha supposedly performed, and in some quarters a belief in a form of reincarnation or transmigration, is simply another religion. One that requires a religious devotion or faith that not even the Buddha would have endorsed--at least according to the following quote: "Do not accept any of my words on faith, Believing them just because I said them. Be like an analyst buying gold, who cuts, burns, And critically examines his product for authenticity. Only accept what passes the test By proving useful and beneficial in your life." Are there 'truths' to be found in the statements of the Buddha? I would answer, by all means, yes. But is Buddhism 'true?' As one who is without faith or religious belief, I must answer, no.

Good article, thank you for the share! The author makes what should be an obvious observation: “[B]eing an atheist doesn’t mean you’re a good critical thinker.” That said, the willingness of these so-called believers to embrace someone whose core belief is antithetical to theirs serves to demonstrate just how hypocritical and politically motivated these people are.

Bible was written in Hebrew.
p-nullifidian comments on May 17, 2021:
If an historical Jesus really did exist, it is likely that he spoke Aramaic, as well as Hebrew and even Greek. The books and letters comprising the New Testament were written not in Hebrew but in Greek. That said, your point is well taken and goes to demonstrate the simple reality that what one believes is, more than anything else, a factor of where one is born.

p-nullifidian comments on May 17, 2021:
I suspect most of us here have concluded that there are no miracles, which is to say, no suspension of the laws of nature by a personal supernatural being. Absent any evidence for a personal God, that would remove the need for prayer, priests, houses of worship and the existence of practically all religions ever conceived. The only remaining belief system for the agnostic would seem to be Deism, the belief that a Supreme being, or first cause, created the universe and then left everyone alone to go off and do something else. I am not averse to this belief, as it requires nothing of us: no clergy, no doctrine and most of all, no payments! To quote Thomas Jefferson, “It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.”

Each god was intensely patriotic, and detested all nations but his own. All these gods demanded praise, flattery, worship.” “The Gods” 1874 And so begins one of Robert Green Ingersoll‘s best speeches!

How do you think the first one invented the first God?
p-nullifidian comments on May 17, 2021:
In ancient times the god factories were legion, as there were likely as many gods as there were clans, bands or tribes, perhaps more. The issue in my mind is when and how the first organized religion was invented, because from that point on, humanity has been plagued by oppressive forces that seek to impose behavior, and even thought, by extorting tithes and offerings, using the reward or punishment in an afterlife as an incentive!

Before deciding on whether or not it's appropriate within families, perhaps we should begin with institutionalized corporal punishment? There remain a significant number of states where corporal punishment is permitted in the schools. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/School_corporal_punishment_in_the_United_States Take a look at the map. It should come as no surprise that many of the same states that were the last to integrate the schools, fought against interracial marriage until overridden by the Supreme Court and opposed gay marriage, continue to permit corporal punishment. When will these people ever learn?

And I am a nullifidian: one who, by definition, has no faith or religious belief.

I recommend the essay, "The Age of Reason" by my avatar. Written in 1794, it holds up incredibly well!
Does this bother you?
p-nullifidian comments on May 9, 2021:
Well put ... kudos! Some years ago, I adopted the philosophy of my avatar that all religions are based on hearsay. Find me a religion that only espouses first person communication! “Revelation, when applied to religion, means something communicated immediately from God to man. No one will deny or dispute the power of the Almighty to make such a communication, if he pleases. But admitting, for the sake of a case, that something has been revealed to a certain person, and not revealed to any other person, it is revelation to that person only. When he tells it to a second person, a second to a third, a third to a fourth, and so on, it ceases to be a revelation to all those persons. It is revelation to the first person only, and hearsay to every other, and consequently they are not obliged to believe it. It is a contradiction in terms and ideas, to call anything a revelation that comes to us at second-hand, either verbally or in writing. Revelation is necessarily limited to the first communication—after this, it is only an account of something which that person says was a revelation made to him; and though he may find himself obliged to believe it, it cannot be incumbent on me to believe it in the same manner; for it was not a revelation made to me, and I have only his word for it that it was made to him.” Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason, 1794
Someone again asked if agnostics are scared to say they are atheists.
p-nullifidian comments on May 4, 2021:
As a nullifidian, it doesn't matter to me that much if one believes or claims to have knowledge of a supreme being. What matters is what they do with that belief--do they support, or even condone religion? If so, that is where we part company. As my avatar said, centuries ago: "I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish church, by the Roman church, by the Greek church, by the Turkish church, by the Protestant church, nor by any church that I know of. My own mind is my own church. All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions, set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit." Thomas Paine, *The Age of Reason*, 1794

p-nullifidian comments on May 3, 2021:
Good point! And decades later, another Republican (whose likeness is adjacent to Lincoln's on Mount Rushmore) dared utter these sentiments: "I believe in a graduated income tax on big fortunes, and in another tax which is far more easily collected and far more effective-a graduated inheritance tax on big fortunes, properly safeguarded against evasion, and increasing rapidly in amount with the size of the estate.” "There can be no effective control of corporations while their political activity remains. To put an end to it will be neither a short nor an easy task, but it can be done…Corporate expenditures for political purposes, and especially such expenditures by public-service corporations, have supplied one of the principal sources of corruption in our political affairs.” "One of the chief factors in progress is the destruction of special privilege. The essence of any struggle for healthy liberty has always been, and must always be, to take from some one man or class of men the right to enjoy power, or wealth, or position, or immunity, which has not been earned by service to his or their fellows.” Theodore Roosevelt True, TR was an imperialist in his foreign policy, but in the area of socio-economic policies, as well as his views on preserving natural resources, he was pretty damned progressive for his time!

Sadly, your last sentence could, if 'regressives' have their way, be prophetic. There are those who, while happily encouraging any criticism of Christianity in general, and the behavior of Christians specifically, disingenuously defend Muslims and the Islamic faith from the scrutiny of western aspersions. Unable, or unwilling, to decouple the absurdities of a religious doctrine from the ethnicity of the majority of its adherents, these irrational actors deplatform critics of Islam, including former Muslims themselves! If these apologists succeed, a western government will pass laws limiting the criticism of Islam, and the cartoons of Charlie Hebdo will be outlawed!

p-nullifidian comments on Apr 20, 2021:
And as a nullifidian (one who is without faith or religious belief), I am amazed at how some find it important to make a strident distinction between the 'agnostic' and 'atheist' labels. If our beliefs are informed by our understanding of the facts (i.e., knowledge), then I see no reason why one cannot be both an atheist (one who lacks a belief in a deity) and an agnostic (one who attests that nothing is known or factually demonstrable regarding the existence or nature of a deity). Agnosticism and atheism are, in this nullifidian's way of looking at it, more alike than they are distinct, and I'm comfortable with both. I have no belief in a god or gods, therefore I'm an atheist. Why? Because I have seen no evidence or facts and am therefore without any knowledge upon which to inform such a belief. In other words, I'm an atheist because I'm an agnostic. In any case, arguing over these two "A" labels runs the risk of ignoring the elephant in the room: religion, which is the real source of so much of humanity's woes.

Mondale was a true statesman. Awesome share! In the 60's, a political generation before Reagan's infamous love fest with the so-called Moral Majority, another statesman who happened to be a Republican espoused the following prescient viewpoint: "Mark my word, if and when these preachers get control of the [Republican] party, and they're sure trying to do so, it's going to be a terrible damn problem. Frankly, these people frighten me. Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise. I know, I've tried to deal with them." Senator Barry Goldwater, Jr. 1964 And then even after his retirement, when the Republican party had decided to hop into bed with the evangelical Christians, ol' Barry said this: "I think every good Christian ought to kick Falwell right in the nuts."

Excellent philosophy video for atheists and agnostics
p-nullifidian comments on Apr 19, 2021:
I have no issue with Spinoza’s amorphous definition of God. However I do take issue with his notion that religion is necessary to explain fictions and to enforce obedience. We already have the state for that. Religion attempts to enforce the conformity of thought through threats and intimidation. And whether or not the mind is convinced, religion demands the outward display of ritual and practice. Religion is a nesting ground for hypocrites! We are indeed fortunate that it is unnatural for human beings to be obedient, to anyone! The attitude of disobedience and non-conformity is at the heart of our greatest advancements and achievements. Religion is an impediment, a roadblock to progress and individual freedoms, and belongs in the graveyard of history.

I've never completely understood the distinction between agnosticism and atheism.

I identify, first and foremost, as a nullifidian (one who is without faith or a religion).

And our poor Mom had better not forget, or we'd give her hell the next morning!

For those interested:

But it's still the Dawning of the Age of Aquarius! ;-)
This is why I'm anti-theist or really anti-religion. It's never been about equality.
p-nullifidian comments on Apr 4, 2021:
Like you, as my pseudonym indicates, I am a nullifidian (one who is without faith or religious belief). Religion is, in my opinion, a cancer on humanity. Peace.

p-nullifidian comments on Apr 4, 2021:
Religion is indeed very dangerous! Faith-based beliefs (i.e., superstitions), whether Eastern or Western, ancient or contemporary, are synonymous with insanity (i.e., a departure from reality), and are all-too-often lethal.

Where is the outcry, and where are the armed idiots who believed in pizza gate now? Will this evolve into Gaetz gate, or is the outrage against such behavior limited to only one party?

I'm fascinated by the question: Is reincarnation possible?
p-nullifidian comments on Apr 3, 2021:
As the universe is physical, the mechanism or process by which reincarnation were to occur would also be physical.

When we were kids, there where no phones or tablets we read cereal 🥣 boxes at breakfast
p-nullifidian comments on Apr 2, 2021:
When we were kids we played an anagram game at breakfast: how many words could we get out of the name of the cereal we were eating. As a result, we would always try new cereals, and look for ones with long names, just to keep the game more interesting!
A recent international report has come to the startling and baffling conclusion that Christians and ...
p-nullifidian comments on Mar 29, 2021:
Excellent points! The through line of faith (i.e., belief without evidence) has always connected religion to those massive conspiracy theories, along with a truckload of other unsubstantiated views. Critical thinking is hardly an asset to a community that regards faith as a virtue, rather than the credulity it actually is.

I can just hear the phone call complaining about a Star of David in their pizza. lol
p-nullifidian comments on Mar 27, 2021:
Star confusion, perhaps? A pentagram and the Star of David are not the same.
Does religion work without magical beings at its center?
p-nullifidian comments on Mar 25, 2021:
"You can't build a religion around a guy named Henry from Ohio unless Henry can resurrect the dead or walk on water." Maybe not a guy named Henry from Ohio, but a guy named Joe Smith from upstate New York succeeded in starting a religion that now numbers over 16 million members, just by saying an angel gave him gold tablets that only he could interpret!

p-nullifidian comments on Mar 17, 2021:
Indeed! As one of my favorite thinkers, the "Great Agnostic" of the 19th Century, stated: "Nations, like individuals, have their periods of youth, of manhood and decay. Religions are the same. The same inexorable destiny awaits them all. The gods created by the nations must perish with their creators. They were created by men, and like men, they must pass away. The deities of one age are the by-words of the next. The religion of our day, and country, is no more exempt from the sneer of the future than the others have been. When India was supreme, Brahma sat upon the world's throne. When the sceptre passed to Egypt, Isis and Osiris received the homage of mankind. Greece, with her fierce valor, swept to empire, and Zeus put on the purple of authority. The earth trembled with the tread of Rome's intrepid sons, and Jove grasped with mailed hand the thunderbolts of heaven. Rome fell, and Christians from her territory, with the red sword of war, carved out the ruling nations of the world, and now Christ sits upon the old throne. Who will be his successor?" Robert Green Ingersoll, *The Gods*, 1872
