Atheism is a Conclusion, Not a belief!

What makes you an atheist? Do they say, “God undeniably does not exist”? Certainly most atheists wouldn’t say that. Regrettably, like most religious people, most dictionaries distort atheism, with definitions like “Rejection of the existence of God.”

Atheism is a conclusion, not a belief!

  1. Verification and knowledge are the proper basis for any beliefs.
  2. Those who make an proclamation have the obligation to prove it.

If a person has no knowledge to persuade with, and he can’t prove the existence of God, he has no purpose to believe God exists. He also has no reason to say God doesn’t exist, if he cannot prove his credence. Why would he waste time trying to “prove” the non-existence in reality of a concept as indefinable as God? If someone said a big serpent in the sky governed the universe, you wouldn’t believe it, and you would be an “ atheist,” but you wouldn’t start gathering verification to “prove” that no invisible big serpent was up there, would you?

A spiritual atheist/agnostic/agnostic?

Perhaps it’s a strange concept if you only think spirituality has to mean a belief in a god. Do the two have to be related? Many people think of the historical Buddha as a spiritual person, but most don’t know that he never expressed a belief in a god. He even discouraged his followers from such “speculation,” preferring that they work on their salvation in this world.

Loving Yourself Enough To Say NO!

Loving Yourself Enough To Say NO!

There are too many nice people in the world today…or so it might seem, with the number of “yes” folks you run into on a daily basis. However, what about the lesser heard “evil sibling”, the word NO?

As a child, you were raised to be considerate of others, and to accommodate them as much as possible.

How do you know exactly when enough is enough? And more importantly, are you saying no to yourself by saying yes to others every time? Chances are that is exactly what you are doing, even if only subliminally. Continue reading “Loving Yourself Enough To Say NO!”
