"Also, teach your kids (if you have any, I am thankfully child free) to that it's okay to question you and the things you tell them are good and bad. You know - "trust, but verify."?"

Revisiting non-belief in god(s) & Respecting our elders

To create the entire multiverse comprising several universes and our visible universe with 200 billion galaxies, each galaxy with 200 to 400 billion stars, each star with its planets and to create life on some planets, is a stupendous task for any creator. Such a creator cannot be a simple entity. It has to be a very complex entity.Yet.Science tells us that everything started with a big bang and just simple hydrogen. All the complex atoms were formed in supernovas. We have seen that simple…See More

"MIchael, at a graveside service, I want to hear you say "Actually, he's not looking down at us.  He's looking up at us".  Well, maybe not.  You would not be popular :-)"

"Sometimes reality requires common sense. After a graveside funeral service you might here someone say " I like to think he's up there looking down on us now." It's strange because the body was just committed to the ground.…"

"I agree with you.  The process of going from belief to reason can take some thinking, curiousity, and sometimes, some courage.  I hope that as time passes, freethought and secular humanism becomes more commonplace, so that it doesn't…"

It requires Inquisitiveness & a lot of guts to be a Secular humanist

Secular Humanism (Secular = Atheistic; Humanism = Concern for Human welfare) does not believe in the Soul, afterlife, karma, reincarnation, heaven or gods and most of all does not believe that man’s mission on earth is to have an implicit & unquestioning faith in gods and to keep praising & glorifying them."A casual stroll through the lunatic asylum shows that faith does not prove anything" -- Friedrich Nietzsche.But debating about the existence or non-existence of gods with the…See More

"Yes, hard wiring. The "need" to believe that is in all of us. Very honestly this is because you're better than the rest of us. That's why my god is bigger than your god, and why you have the wrong god and I have the right one.…"

How to Believe in God in Six Easy steps:
1. First, you must want to believe in God. That is simply because you love your parents and your parents told you that there is a God.

2. Next, understand that believing in God in the absence of evidence is…

The futile search for happiness & meaning

Posted on April 27, 2016 at 10:40pm 3 Comments

What makes life worth living? Is it a life filled with happiness or a life filled with purpose and meaning? Is there even a difference between the two?

Think of the human rights activist who fights oppression but ends up in prison like Nelson Mandela — was he happy? Or the social animal who spends his nights (and some days) jumping from party to party—is that the good life?…
