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.
