Browsing the web one day I went into Religion to see the stuffs in there. I came to visit some links that dealt about Atheism. I left a few comments in some of them. By now, I must have repeated the line many times of there is no such thing as Atheist or Atheism, which I believe is one subject that I need to expound in here.
That there is no such thing as Atheist or Atheism…
There are people who claim to be Atheist. They say so and they won’t hesitate to say it again and again that there is no God, denying the existence of God. Interesting, all of them I know however, practice to varying degrees and forms what are attributes of the spiritual world – in short, God.
What happens when we take away the absolute spiritual aspects in man leaving only the absolute material aspects? My guess is, man will be not even fit of expressing whether there is or there is no God, an ape. Like, he will probably be no different from a person who lost one side of his brain in some accident, no better than a vegetable in one side of a coin to a mechanical robot in the other side of it.
In the world of Materialists, Religion is classified under Social Culture. And today’s culture is the sum of what man has developed since he was homo-sapiens. And any sociologist will agree that religion, belief in the existence God, has played an important role in shaping that culture sparing nobody.
I’d been studying people and their ways (social-political actually), which incidentally is not really free of religion. So far, what people who claim to be atheists have exhibited are, in fact, not proof that there is no God but presumptions, assumptions, perceptions, attributions, theories, beliefs, faith or anti thesis of the same things that sum up to what we call Religion. Disbeliefs are centered at religion rather than God. Factually, It is religious beliefs and practices that are in question.
I have known some Atheists. There was a time when Atheism is more of politics: That there is no God… And since audience happened to be Roman Catholics it means no Pope, no Bishops, no parish Priests, no Clerico Fascists, no Peace on earth, no Thou shalt not kill. No authority other than selves.
It is also a sort of redeveloping religion. Like when program turned to something like Eradicate all demons and beasts and send them all to their shallow graves… And the definition of demons and beasts? They are people without conscience! Is not conscience about God? Well, there’s our Atheists with their feet on spiritual ground if they did not know it!
