Common Sense Atheism in a Nutshell
Consider: every devout Muslim has the same reasons for being a Muslim that you have for being a Christian. And yet you do not find their reasons compelling….
Why don’t you lose any sleep over whether to convert to Islam? Can you prove that Allah is not the one, true God? Can you prove that the archangel Gabriel did not visit Muhammad in his cave? Of course not. But you need not prove any of these things to reject the beliefs of Muslims as absurd. The burden is upon them to prove that their beliefs about God and Muhammad are valid. They have not done this. They cannot do this….
The truth is, you know exactly what it is like to be an atheist with respect to the beliefs of Muslims. Isn’t it obvious Muslims are fooling themselves? Isn’t it obvious that anyone who thinks that the Koran is the perfect word of the creator of the universe has not read the book critically?…
Understand that the way you view Islam is precisely the way devout Muslims view Christianity. And it is the way I view all religions.
To accept a religion’s claims, you can’t use the reasoning you apply to other religions – your “common” sense – or else you would reject your own religion for the same reasons you reject other religions. The religious person must employ special thinking.
If we remove GOD from our sick society we will be left with nothing but liars, deceivers, cheaters, polluters, sex seller, sex buyers, swindlers, murderers, kidnappers, robbers, killers, rapists, tax evaders, child molesters, street beggars, sick employers, sick reporters, sick telecasters, sick teachers, sick professors, sick doctors, sick lawyers, sick bookkeepers, sick politicians, sick theologians, sick mothers and sick fathers happy and proud to produce street children for the dirty streets of our sick and dirty cities - precisely the real horrors historically happening daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly in the Philippines with God always there existing ready and willing and available to forgive all of our sick sins and sick crimes at any time in this only Catholic country in Asia since the 16th century. AMEN!
It has always been a highly profitable religious business for the Priesthood Industry, hasn't it? - - - Poch Suzara, ATHEIST
