Glad I could help. I remember chatting with you about lack of belief. There's no way I could ever be as clear and eloquent as QualiaSoup. If anyone has trouble with what being atheist or agnostic is really about, I suggest they watch this video:


QualiaSoup rules.

Yeah like I said in the essay, I was pretty much almost there, just confused about the difference between an agnostic and an atheist. It seemed subtle and not so important at the time, but I've come to appreciate the power of the distinction since. You're such an evangelist!

I just got tired of religious people always trying to say that atheists had faith that there was no god(s). I used to read alt.atheism and so many dishonest theists would try to equate atheism with religion and it's such a lame tactic. Also, The word atheist or atheism has such a stigma and I also felt like agnostic people that don't believe should also realize that they were also atheists and should not be afraid of that word. But maybe they should since atheists are the most hated and distrusted people in the world hahahaha! What a crazy world it is.


Totally agree. Obviously I am personally headed more in the direction that all Religion needs to be eradicated, as it is at best child abuse and at worst the greatest tool ever invented to derail every hope and dream that mankind as a species could ever hope to attain.
Of course that itself is one of those hopes and dreams (to be free from fear of the unknown and from ascribing superstitious beliefs to the gaps in our knowledge) so... it seems unlikely.

I do wish it was possible to stop parents from indoctrinating their kids at such a young age. I mean I'm not teaching my kids to be atheists. I'm just answering their questions as honestly as possible. It will be a bummer if they turn out to be christians and/or republicans but I'd rather they used their own brains to figure out what delusions they need to make it through this insane thing called life on Earth. hahahaha That sounds a bit too much like SubGenius dogma ;) I do think that some people really need to go into a fantasy world of some kind in order to deal with the reality of the situation, because the reality of life, when looked at clearly, is not an easy pill to swallow. I often wonder what human life would be like without religion and if maybe religion made it possible for people to continue on when life became too bleak. Maybe atheism is easier these days, coming from a position of comfort. Maybe religion was needed but now needs to be cast off in order for humanity to continue.


Yeah, teaching your kids to think for themselves is a better, less final solutiony way to say 'eradicate all religion.' But hopefully, teaching kids how to think is what will one day eradicate all religion!

And there are no maybes about it... I think it is way past time to cast it off for us to continue. Religion will destroy the world with it's complacent idiocy if it continues much longer.
