What does this mean to you... A religion without a goddess is halfway to atheism
Is all fair in religion? Atheism? When you read this quote, what is the very first thing that springs to mind?
To me it describes our religious path throughout history, from polytheism to monotheism. and eventually to atheism.
The presence, or absence, of a goddess in a religion has absolutely nothing to do with atheism. That religion may seem a little sexist, but ultimately they still believe in some kind of deity, where as atheists don't believe in any. And, as for fairness, religion has proven again and again, that they are less concerned with equality, and more concerned with whatever their holy texts say (regardless of how contradictory or oppressive it may be today). But that doesn't necessarily make atheism more accepting or fair. Since atheism is not a unified religion, but rather a description of someone who does not believe in deities, their individual beliefs can vary wildly.

Einstein said 'The fanatical atheists are liked slaves who are stil feeling the weight of their chains which they have thrown off after hard struggle. They are creatures who-in their grudge against traditional religion as the' opium of the masses' cannot hear the music of the spheres.'What...

I'm currently in a university class on critical thinking, and it's forcing me to think about a lot of things from perspectives that I've never examined previously. I abandoned my faith in god over the process of many, many years, and there were many factors that played into my decision to...

A few atheists on this forum are in the habit of pushing the argument that religion causes war. Although the argument has a half a leg to stand on, I have never seen one admit that there are other causes of this unfortunate phenomenon. I took a quick search of the history of atheism...
