How to transform our Irrational Society

Posted on July 8, 2017 at 11:51pm 0 Comments

There might be many ways of doing this, but my way is this. Forget some of the older people whose ideas are ossified & calcified. Let them wallow in their delusions as long as they are happy in their illusory world. But catch hold of your children, grandchildren at an impressionable age and do the following:

- To counter worshiping god(s) to fulfill their desires, teach them that human beings are capable of fulfilling their desires by their own honest effort. If desires are…

When people learn that I'm a secular humanist, one of the most frequent questions they ask is, "What do you believe happens after death?"
