While AA has restored thousands of poor Christ…

While AA has restored thousands of poor Christians to their churches, and has made believers out of atheists and agnostics, it has also made good AA’s out of those belonging to the Buddhist, Islamic, and Jewish faiths. For example, we question very much whether our Buddhist members in Japan would ever have joined this Society had AA officially stamped itself a strictly Christian movement.
You can easily convince yourself of this by imagining that AA started among the Buddhists and that they told you you couldn’t join them unless you became a Buddhist, too. If you were a Christian alcoholic under those circumstances, you might well turn your face to the wall and die.

Day 2,025

There’s still no god.

Guess who? (Hint: not god…)

Guess who? (Hint: not god…)

Religion blinds the mind to reality…After a lifetime of listening to a priest or minister…you will be…none the wiser…!

Religion is wishful thinking*…

As every year passes…and humanity learns ever more about reality…more and more of the bible is disproven…and made completely irrelevant to every day life…relegated to the realm of primitive myth and allegory…discounted even by “believers”…

* if your wish is to make religious institutions and their leaders…wealthy…off of your own hard labors…

Science is verifiable…religion is unbel…

Science is verifiable…religion is unbelievable…(but many still say they try*…!)

Understanding science develops intelligence…Religion develops superstitious ignorance…

Using science has created a better world for the living, because there is no verifiable evidence for an afterlife…Religion creates conflict and chaos for the living…but promises an unverifiable utopia after you’re dead…

Applying science to make lives grander, creates wealth…Religion strips people’s wealth using fear and false/unverifiable pretenses…and uses it for self-aggrandizement…

Science explores reality…Religion postulates a primitive demented fantasy…

Understanding science puts incredible power in the hands of everyday people…Religion dis-empowers the everyday person, and concentrates power in the hands of a few leaders…who appear to prioritize it for the purposes of actively, themselves…or to aid and abet colleagues who are actively…abusing minors…

* a living person of “faith”…is someone who has learned to look both ways…before crossing the road…

Christians whose baby died because they refuse…

Christians whose baby died because they refused medical care learn they face life in prison: undefined

The historical Buddha never claimed to be a go…

The historical Buddha never claimed to be a god. Rather than a literal flesh and blood Buddha, the Higher Power in Buddhism is Amida Buddha, whose name means infinite light and boundless life. Namu-Amida-Butsu.
