Human soul

I've heard many so called atheists refer to the "soul" as if it actually existed.  My question is:  If you believe humans have a soul are you really an atheist? Continue

If apologists say that was a different time, etc., ask them a) why modern practicing Jews can't eat a BLT or a Cheezburger, and b) xians insist on putting 10 Commandments inside or in front of courthouses and public schools...

As for meaning...everybody makes their own, even the people who stick to the obsolete supernatural stuff that they have been taught.  But it IS more fun to create your own (For instance, it's been 30+ years since I've been physically able to skate or dance, but I still do choreography in my head when I listen to music. And I enjoy it.)

Morality and ethics...the first line of the Hippocratic Oath works for me: Do no harm.  With an addendum: If it was/is accidental, apologize at once!  And make amends, if necessary.

(holy) Harridan, that's exactly the point. The whole thing IS antiquated, and mostly of value because the "old testament" part documents an ancient culture and mythology. It's nice for historians to be able to learn about an ancient culture in their own words. The "new testament" part is simply propaganda directed at different peoples in order to get them to convert to a new religion. It's pure fantasy and again, only worth studying as a document that was VERY effective as propaganda -- a good lesson for those who want to spread propaganda now.

Terry,

The apologists claim that it was a different time and we don't practice that now. If one part is antiquated, why not the WHOLE thing? Someone once said to after I told them I was atheist how do you find meaning in your life without religion? Where does your morality come from?

@Harridan20 One solution is take a bible to work yourself and read the parts aloud about how to treat your slaves or how much you should pay the father of the woman you raped. You know, all the good stuff.  :-)

Hi Everyone, I was appalled at some of the discriptions in the blog. This fictional book gets so much attention. I have coworkers who bring their bibles to work to read. If human beings can evolve and accept that the practices of the previous generation of people is barbaric or outdated then why do they follow a questionable book full of inconsistencies?

Angela, I received a copy of that blog post, and I wish I could choke that lying nun.  The truth is that starting with the Puerto Rican women who were involved in the very first double-blind tests of The Pill, when the hormone dosage was much higher than it is now, the ones who got the actual medication have always had fewer cases of cancer, and other "women's problems," than the ones who got the placebo. They are still being "followed up"...after more than 50 years.

The pill SAVES lives...unless one believes, as the child-raping Catholic priests apparently do...that "Every Sperm Is Sacred."  (They never say anything about all the unfertilized ova that are "discarded" every month...  Twits.)
