Why, exactly, do people say they FOUND religion? This brings up two issues in my mind, and here they are.
It’s not my fault! I was born this way. Perhaps if I distance myself verbally…
I see the term “God-fearing” used a lot in books and television, and I would suspect, personal ads, when, usually, a single woman says she wants a “God-fearing” man. Why on Earth would you want one of those?
There’s one word that people seem to get wrong all the damn time. Do an image search for it and you got lots of pretty text, a fish, Shrek, actor Tom Ellis on fire, three women in sports bras and one guy who looks like he might get it but there’s a mushroom cloud in the background so… no. Do you know what this magic and allegedly happy word is?
If god is all knowing and all watching, why do we have to dedicate so much time to letting him know that we know he’s watching and we… what? Appreciate it? But if he knows all, then doesn’t he know we’re appreciative of his works?
I’ve heard it called the “Original Sin,” but is it? Why exactly is “sex” a sin? It is, biologically speaking, the act of creating more humans. Having a deity that says procreation is a bad idea makes very little sense. If we didn’t do it, us lowly humans would die out and then there wouldn’t be anyone left to worship anyone, would there?
I’m asked periodically, how I can be an atheist. The answer is simple, organized religions really don’t make a whole lot of sense. Most of them.
Television and movies have, all too often, shown the ugly side of religions and, unfortunately, many people believe the way the people on TV do.
It’s not a war on “Christmas.” The holiday itself is lovely. Peace on Earth actually being practiced? Yes, please. Let’s have more of that. (And we don’t have to limit that part to this particular holiday.) But there are some issues that need addressing.
I know, that sounds like a horrifically silly question. Bizarrely, I think it does have merit though, and if you’ll stick with me on an explanation of Pokemon and, in particular, the game Pokemon Go, I think you’ll find something quite interesting.
I produce called “The Wytching Hour.” The subject of the show? Modern Paganism. I think it’s a very interesting show. I’m just the engineer on it, really. I do none of the programming or subjects and I find it fascinating. Unfortunately, there are people who get weirded out by the subject and wonder why I’m not doing a Christian show. There’s where the issues begin.
