The Ten Pronouncements"
by Jody Nagel
There is no existent "god" and never has been. Any conceptualization of "god" that is symbolic, and representative of human aspirations, is a form of atheism, and is not, furthermore, a particularly useful way to get the point across.
Jesus of Nazareth is currently a 2000-year-old rotted corpse, just like everyone else that lived 2000 years ago. Whatever happened following his crucifixion is irrelevant, as he is dead and gone NOW.
Anything that requires "faith" to believe is stupid. "Having faith" is not a thing to respect; it is a degeneration of the mind, and something in need of a cure.
The "bible" was written by barbarians. It not only is NOT "god's word," it is complete nonsense written by primitive people with their own political agenda.
Discontentment with the idea that "the universe has no beginning" is identical, in kind, to discontentment with the idea that "god has no beginning." The requirement that there be a god to "explain" [why the universe exists] just pushes the problem further away, to one further level of abstraction. The universe is NOT a creation. It just IS.
There is no heaven, no hell, no angels, no demons, no god, no devil, no spiritual existence, no "afterlife," no "soul" that is separate from the brain and body, nothing at all except for REAL PEOPLE living in a REAL UNIVERSE. Any person that blames demons and credits gods, rather than taking HUMAN responsibility for their own actions, is the primary EVIL that exists on this planet.
The belief that MAN is born EVIL is a self-fulfilling prophecy that assures there be EVIL. This belief must be exorcised from humanity.
Fundamentalism accomplishes one primary thing: it justifies wealth and power inequity. Fairness on Earth is impossible as long as people are brainwashed by fundamentalism.
I should be able to sue any person that approaches me or my children with the attempt to inflict his theistic religious pollution on us. If found guilty, these people should be sentenced for a harassment felony and punished by a lengthy prison sentence.
Fundamentalist Theists are the number one enemy of HUMANITY.
