#Atheism


Chaos. Asymmetry. Imperfection. These properties of the universe are not the dissolution of beauty, but the source of it.
.
I started using waves as a symbol for this concept after first reading what is possibly the saddest poem I have ever read, On Squaw Peak by Robert Hass. The poem is about his coping with the miscarriage of a child... one he was very much looking forward to meeting.
.
Mid-poem, he and his wife are grieving when they see an albino deer come out of the woods in a dramatically beautiful display. That's when he realizes the deer is a "freak of beauty" like "the law of averages that killed [his] child". They then walk to the beach and watch the waves. The waves, at first glance, seem almost identical. But then he begins to realize that no two are the same... there are subtle and intricate differences in each and every one, endlessly crashing in slightly different ways. Every once in a while you randomly get a monster wave and every once in a while you get one that never breaks.
.
The poem discovers that both tragedies and miracles are born from the same properties of the universe and-- to some extent-- we have very little control over the lucky and unlucky events in our lives. One thing we do have control over, however, is how we choose to embrace those events... and how we choose to accept the innate chaos of our world.

Repost @kaylamyoga "Who really understands the scriptures correctly? Who's doctrine is sound? Who really knows God? Who are the true believers? Am I on the right team? How will they treat me if I believe differently? Am I allowed to believe differently? Do I have the truth if I believe differently? Do I really know God? Cos everyone else seems convinced they do" ... I actually don't care anymore.

How to be an atheist... Step 1, read the Bible! In fact, you don’t need to know any science at all to be an atheist. It’s as easy as reading scripture, using common sense and logic.

The sense of ancient Chinese tales is not to gain wisdow through the moral of the story, but to feel zen AF. Fucking zen. .

Been meaning to treat myself to a copy of Christopher Hitchens ‘God is Not Great’ for a long while now. Can’t wait to read some literary Hitchslaps! Not a week goes past that I wish he was still with us to put fundamentalists in their place ...#christopherhitchens #godisnotgreat #religionpoisonseverything #hitchslap #goodreads #essentialreading #thefourhorsemen #secularism #socraticmethod #atheism #science #logic #reason

Tardigrades (also known as water bears, space bears, moss piglets) are eight-legged micro-animals found everywhere, including the deep sea, tropical rain forests, even the Antarctic. They are more than 500 million years old and are one of the most resilient animals surviving
conditions that would kill most life forms. Examples: some tardigrades
can withstand temperatures of −272 °C (−458 °F), pressures 6 times that found in the deepest parts of the ocean, and survive without food or water for more than 30 years. How insane and cool is that? They can be various colours, transparent/white, brown, yellow, orange, pink, red, green, blue, gray. Any colour suggestions?

If the option is 1. Heaven with theists for all eternity while singing praise to a psychopathic narcissist; or 2. burning in hell for all eternity with these people and the atheist community... I'd pick 2! 🔥🤘🎶 #atheistcommunity #atheists #atheism #atheist #sciencerocks

👉 A boy touched by the meanings of the Holy_Quran that hé was reciting . 👉 God(in arabic : Allah) said in the Quran : " Allah has sent down the best statement: a consistent Book wherein is reiteration. The skins shiver therefrom of those who fear their Lord; then their skins and their hearts relax at the remembrance of Allah . That is the guidance of Allah by which He guides whom He wills. And one whom Allah leaves astray - for him there is no guide. 39-22/23

You can’t have both. Pick one. The earth was either created 6,000-12,000 years ago, like your holy book indicates, or 4.5 million years ago; like science says. Make up your freaking mind! 43% of Christians who take the Bible LITERALLY (which is the only way you should take it, or none at all) believe the earth is 6,000 years old. You guys are embarrassing. P.S. it’s really funny how God just left out the entire existence of Dinosaurs in the whole ENTIRE Bible! Really ironic considering the Bible was written before we knew anything about dinosaurs. 🤔 “By the way human race, I forgot to have mentioned that before I populated the earth through incest, I murdered all the dinosaurs. Yeah, don’t be surprised if you find tons of fossils. I murdered the dinosaurs because I love you guys!” 😂🤘🏻 #dinosaursandjesus #cherrypickers #hilarious #youngearthcreationism #biblestudy #atheistcomedy #logic #atheism #dinosaursarentreal #evolution #science #jesus

He wrote this in the late fifties, but it’s as true as ever today.

Nietzsche’s prediction about “the death of God” would lead to nihilism, which many dictators would promise a solution to.
Those who have abandoned religion tend to turn to collectivism or nihilism as an alternative. That was the struggle in the West during Jung’s time, and still is at the moment.
