The Choice is Emphatically NOT Between Christianity and Atheism | Debunking Christianity

The Choice is Emphatically NOT Between Christianity and Atheism | Debunking Christianity | The Atheism News Magazine | Scoop.it

I am an atheist. I reject all religious faiths and paranormal claims. In fact I reject faith, period. I should never take an irrational leap of faith beyond what the evidence leads me to conclude. So I do not believe. I am a non-believer. That distinguishes me from people who believe. Believers are all in one category (or type, or classification) of people. Non-believers are in a different category. Believers base what they claim to know on faith. Non-believers base what they claim to know on the actual probabilities.

In large part, the history of America has been a story of one group after another coming forward to demand the equal rights that had been denied to them, and winning those rights through strife and struggle. This process of social change is still playing out today, but some groups are further along the path to acceptance than others.

My Take: Kim Jong Il and the danger of deifying leaders – CNN Belief Blog - CNN.com Blogs | The Atheism News Magazine | Scoop.it
There are important lessons to observe here. A big one is that officially atheistic states are never so atheistic as they appear. Something or someone will be worshipped and acknowledged as ultimate.
If the worship of God is forbidden, the state may well turn its own dictator into a deity. This transforms the leader and the regime into objects of devotion and worship. The state is then beyond all rational critique and consideration.
