Welcome to the Church of Science.
Todays ceremony is about… something, something… illusions of the mind… oh, and there is no God.
It reminds me of Sunday school. There were less children of course, but lots were the same. We started to talk about trivial stuff, watching cartoons and what not, and then we took out the bible and learned “the truth”.
Just like Mr. Dawkins does here. First we do some actual learning, and then we learn about the lies of religion, spirituality and other nonsense.
Would you believe in a God if you were raised by Mr Dawkins? Probably not. Well perhaps when you were a teenager to make daddy angry, but no not for long. It’s all illusions and apophenia.
Now let’s read from the Origin of Species.
“There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.”
I think we all can agree. What Darwin is saying here is: Religion is a decease of the mind. Murder, mayhem, death and destruction is words that should have the connotations to belief and religion. We should all know! And we all know that science is the truth. The Omega of the world.
What this means is of course: We grew up with a sense that everything HAD TO HAVE A PURPOSE! But now we can see the human purpose for what it is: It’s a product of brains, and brains are a product of EVOLUTION.
Now we’re going to sing the hymn “Closer” by Nine Inch Nails.
Can I get an Amen?
After we have preached the good words, we like to have a cop of coffee in the basement. Where all us atheist can have a little talk about day-to-day strife of being an individual in a collective world etc.
Our Good Friend and mentor Mr. Richard Dawkins had a fascinating discussion of “Moral” and “Ethics” with another atheist. Let’s listen inn on what they had to say.
Yes, people are dumb!
They really are.
Believing that people are born equal with the same rights. That’s nonsense. We (the humanist) just said so to make the transition from Christian ethics to atheist “ethics” more easy. It’s basically what Christians did with hedonism holidays, taking something from that other belief system and making them their own so that people wouldn’t notice the change.
Remember my faithful atheist, there are no logical reasoning, other than naive idealism and religion that can defend that a person born without arms, or a person born without the brainpower of a scientist should have the right to live.
Now we know better… Retards and other sub-people have NO REASON TO LIVE and should be killed.
At our humble get-together we serve coffee, cake and consenting (and condescending) road-kill.
