Ceremonial Deism

Posted on May 28, 2012 at 11:30pm 2 Comments

If you want to hear me rant, just mention ceremonial deism. The courts have stated the the god in In God We Trust is so meaningless that it is not religious. Yet, citizens still use the fact the In God We Trust (IGWT) is our motto to continue the myth that the U.S. is a Christian nation. Yes, maybe to you justices IGWT is so ridiculous that it is meaningless, but to millions of Americans, it says, "We are a Christian Nation." E. Pluribus…

Humanism is Tribalism on Steroids

Humanism is Tribalism on Steroids

                Many theists have difficulty in understanding how atheist/humanists get their morals if they did not get them by stealing them from Christianity. The answer is really quite simple: Tribalism evolved to become more and more inclusive until it reached all of humanity.

In answer to your question, yes, strictly speaking both pantheism and paganism do qualify as nontheistic. There is actually a movement promoting scientific pantheism. Theism is the traditional concept of a god that is omnibenevolent, omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent. So yes, paganism is nontheistic but unlike pantheism is often uncomfortable with that fact. Paganism is usually polytheistic which has a variety of different conceptions of what they mean by gods from the traditional Greek, Roman, German, Norse, Hindu, Celt, etc. pantheons to simply "deifying" ideas like discord, environmentalism, feminism, liberty, etc. So always let a pagan define themselves for you and shouldn't get into too much trouble. Also, that will give you a chance to make a polite case against supernaturalism at least for those that are simply "deifying" concepts.
