Go to: Atheist clergymen and belief in belief

Zulu's Avatar Jump to comment 38 by Zulu

This paper reminds me of the short story about an atheist priest who sees that religion as the only outlet of hope for a desperately impoverished village. It is called "Saint Manuel, the Good Martyr," and it opens the mind to utilitarian arguments regarding a/theism. I recommend my friends here read it.

Go to: Atheist Spirituality by a former Muslim Apologist.

Dear Farhan, The most useful piece of advice I can give you from my heart and experience is to not consider your time as a Muslim as a waste. Not every atheist became so in the same way. Some were raised faithless, some were apathetic until they encountered new knowledge that led them to atheism, and others - like you and me - became atheists only after a grueling but ultimately enlightening process of both introspection and exploration. In fact, I don't regret going through this process. There are aspects of myself and the world I might have not have discovered were it not for the long struggle to break that last thread of faith. I'm sure, given time, you will feel the same way. In the end, the point is that you got there, and I hope you feel happier.

Go to: Two equally bad fallacies

Misfire, I completely agree with you. There is an ongoing trend for people to instill a sense of "balance" in every aspect of there lives, including knowledge, which by definition is a collection be facts and not simply information. This in turn helps dictates their ideology, and that is worrisome. The truth often hurts, as it should, and we should fight the natural impulse that pushes us to reconcile inconvenient truths.
