10th August 2010

“The vast majority of Christians display a remarkably blasé attitude toward their approaching day of judgement, leading lives almost indistinguishable from those of us open non-believers. Put simply, they fail the behavioural test for belief.”

    I have been reading Jamie Whyte’s work for some years. I like it very much. For those who haven’t read anything by him, but would like to do so, I can recommend “Bad Thoughts – a Guide to Clear Thinking”. It’s written in plain (and often amusing) English and it’s available from Amazon.

    I,m more concerned about what God Has to say than what Mr.White has to say.Mr. White wants to put everyone who claims to be a Christian in the same bag.That would be the same as putting all atheists in the same bag. The true Christian believer is a follower of Jesus Christ anything short of his teachings just simply isn’t Christian. Its not easy living the life of a christian,thats why there are so many who call themselves Christians but are not, they stopped trying.There is more to being a christian than belonging to a church group.

    There’s more to being a scotsman than drinking your malt whisky neat.

    Fortunately I am a believer… in the fact that I’m at least partially a Scotsman! I always thought that the whisky drinking was the defining trait and in my youth I have been “religious” in its pursuit and enlightenment.

    To take the sentiment of the quote to its logical insanity: A ‘real’ believer would not waste a moment’s time here on this planet – they would just “move on” (already, please!!?!). Unfortunately, the clergy discovered that adoption of this mindset would be a big problem to their coffers – so they excluded that little “holy exhaust emissions/wrist-slashing = salvation” shortcut to keep people penniless and subjugated. It is amazing that it is hard for these enslaved people to see the chains holding them back.

    Other than the risk that you would live your life for your own fulfillment, rather than than that of the ruling theocracy’s, what is the philosphical difference between atheism and the theism du jour?
