With an MA Theology, I know enough about religion to know why I am an atheist. Religion is/was our primitive way of ensuring/imposing a particular order on the world and an explanation for it. Its also the Daddy In The Sky - a psychological need, not a rational one.
Thought I'd like to meet up with others who may think as I do. What bothers me most about religion is that it is so man-made, eg., has no hope of satisfying anything but human weakness. Human courage, curiosity, aspiration are so limited within every religion, at best, that it prevents our natural evolution. Not to mention that it is the excuse for human barbarisms of all kinds.
May want to be involved with active movements. Depends on whether I agree fully with them. Dont like dictatorships of any kind. When religionists or atheists try to force people to be a certain way, that makes me angry.
Humorous, cheeky and very direct. Depends on the context and need.
Hi, I am a Spiritual Atheist. Meaning that as a poet and artist, I find meaning everywhere in the One in which we live. Plotinian Oneness satisfies my need for a metaphysics of Unity in the universe.
