“Christians Walk on Water…Atheist Children Sink.”

Standard

Charlie Hebdo says they are making a religious critique by displaying a Christian walking on water while a Muslim child drowns.  In my opinion, Charlie Hebdo merely wants to display images of Muslim children drowning to desensitize Westerners to the death of Middle Eastern children.

Charlie Hebdo is creating imperialist propaganda.  They know that most Westerners are still Christian and they are exploiting Christianity to turn Christian Westerners against Muslim Middle Easterners as a way to maintain imperialism.  They are also trying to show that the life of a Muslim child is something that should be shrugged off.

Charlie Hebdo will say that they are critiquing Christianity.

Well we can test that.

Would Charlie Hebdo ever depict a French or American child who grew up in an atheist household drowning?

Why not display the words “Christians walk on water…children of atheist Westerners sink” as a way to critique Christianity?

The fact that Charlie Hebdo would never do the same with the children of atheist Westerners proves my point that they are merely trying to make Muslim children look expendable so it doesn’t matter how many of them are wiped out by Western militarism.

They are trying to imply that shamelessly letting a Middle Eastern child drown is acceptable.

Christians and Atheists Should Be United Against…

Standard

…the myth that the USSR redistributed wealth equally.  Some people in the Soviet Union weighed 300 pounds while others died of starvation.

Atheists should work towards destroying this myth because atheists profess to advocate for evidence-based reality.  The evidence very clearly shows that Soviet elites were lying about wealth redistribution.  It should be obvious that Soviet elites were trying to maintain inequality to maintain oppressive elitism.

Christians should work towards dispelling this myth because it’s used by oppressors to maintain unnecessary poverty.  Any discussion of eliminating poverty through measures such as a basic income is immediately met with the response that poverty elimination in the USSR resulted in mass starvation.  In reality, mass starvation occurred in the USSR because Soviet elites were ENFORCING poverty and ENFORCING inequality.  Christians should oppose any lie that keeps people poor for no reason because Christ would never be okay with such things.

Thus, something that both atheists and Christians can work together towards is helping to dispel any myth that keeps people poor for no reason and that is not in line with hard evidence.

People Who Can’t Accept That the USSR Was Not Communism or Equality Are Not Fit to Teach.

Standard

It’s horrendous that Western educators have been propagating such a blatant and horrendous lie that the USSR was actually redistributing wealth equally amongst all of its citizens. It’s horrendous that millions upon millions of students are being fed this lie throughout junior high, high school and post-secondary.

It’s horrendous that every Western (and Soviet) media outlet fed this lie to the public.

It’s horrendous that all of these “fact and evidence”-based atheists suddenly turn tail and run when it’s time to advocate for evidence that actually opposes elitism.

Islam: Religion of Violence

Standard

A delusion is something that people believe in despite a total lack of evidence. 
-Richard Dawkins

It takes a certain level of intellectual sophistication to look at the world through a lens of reason rather than give into prejudice that serves only to convenience an undiscriminating mind.  As of late, New Atheism and its proponents (Harris, Dawkins, Maher and the following they’ve amassed for themselves) have come under heavy fire for what is perceived as “knee-jerk anti-Muslim bigotry.” Such criticism likely stems from the media’s oversight of the general public’s emotional vulnerability to isolated scenes of violence directed towards Muslims.  This has been exacerbated by what can only be described as ultra-left-wing sentimentalists—many stemming from Hollywood’s spare-time-“intellectuals”—who have abandoned reason and hard evidence for misguided notions that blind sympathy for all “others” necessarily equates to virtuous liberal sensibility.  One must temper impulse with reason and take a solid look at truths we don’t always want to acknowledge.  As the following article illustrates, evidence and reason would lead a rational mind to conclude that Islam, exceptional among Abrahamic religions, naturally incites violence within its followers:

Why Terrorists Attack so Often: Believers Abandon Reason, Science and Evidence

One continues muddled in the grimy depths of ignorance without taking a clear look at Islam’s brimming track-record of being the single common denominator in acts of terror and extremism throughout history:

For centuries during its prominence, Muslims have posed a serious threat to the Roman Empire and terrorism stemming from Islamic tribes, requiring the need for exorbitant Roman military expenditure, is cited as a contributor to the once all-powerful empire’s decline.

In fact, one can see documentation of raids by rogue Muslim seafarers on Eastern Mediterranean empires as far back as the mid-14th century BCE.  As with Rome, the number of Muslim groups that banded together to carry out these attacks increased consistently until the collapse of Bronze Age civilization within the region altogether.

And nobody can deny the extreme threat Islamic nomads from the North posed to ancient Chinese dynasties, requiring countless man-hours, resources—even human lives—to constantly build, rebuild and repair thousand-kilometre stretches of defensive barrier.

Thus, recent science and evidence alongside countless documented examples throughout history points to a single conclusion which I’ll let the critical mind of a rational reader reach for itself.

Keep Playing Dumb

Standard

(Note: This is especially targeted towards those who think direct democracy should be curtailed on their behalf.)

For me, Israel should have never been created.  The Palestinians are not descendants of those responsible for the Jewish-Roman wars that occurred in that region roughly two thousand years ago.

Furthermore, it’s pretty obvious that Aboriginals can prove that they are the direct descendants of the original inhabitants of the Americas.  They have a far greater claim to taking back their original land.

I think it’s interesting how such obviousness completely slips under the radar.  People who consider themselves “the responsible and enlightened men and women of society” are suddenly nowhere to be found when such obvious inconsistencies arise and easily allow the more aggressive and unapologetically illogical voices of society to take over.  It’s obvious that right-wing loud-mouths make no sound arguments, yet those who pretend their place in society is to sort out the foolishness of the common person don’t intervene at all when people far less sensible than the common person use the least sensical arguments to justify Israel’s “right to exist” while pretending the Native Americans being almost completely wiped out when the Europeans arrived was just a coincidence.

I’ve seen people using the greater surface area of the Arab nations as an argument for why Israel is the victim.  Again, suddenly all the “responsible men and women” just let such nonsense occur despite being more than intelligent enough to know these are not sound arguments whatsoever.  Even if a person sides with Israel, they should still speak out against people siding with Israel for reasons they disagree with. Sam Harris who cares so much about logic/reason suddenly doesn’t mind the amount who support Israel for purely Christian reasons.  Even if he sides with Israel, he should still voice criticism of people supporting for a reason he is supposed to disagree with.

The Economist suggested a meritocracy where the public votes on more issues, but “responsible men and women” review everything and have final say.  What responsible men and women? It’s obvious that many within the political/media/academic/business élite knew full well what Israel was up to and have been intentionally lying and whitewashing the crimes.  Are they going to own up to that now that the public knows what’s been happening? Are they going to bear proper punishment the way responsible men and women are supposed to? Or are they going to be as silent as possible, hoping the situation blows over, so they aren’t given the punishment they deserve?

For the Native American issue, even if current Americans aren’t responsible for the crimes of their ancestors, they still need to make amends.  If my grandparents stole a painting from your grandparents, that painting still belongs to your lineage.  “Enlightened/responsible men and women” should be smart enough to figure that out.  But the issue never comes up.  “Erudite” men/women will talk for ages and write countless scholarly articles about some obscure philosophical concept, yet, for something so basic and obvious, they suddenly choose to say nothing and let illogic they purport to hate have voice.

Any treasures taken during colonialism must go back to their rightful owners. That’s basic common sense—if you are holding goods your ancestors stole, they still don’t belong to you.  But “mature and responsible men/women” who are so much more logical than the rest of us, again, just play dumb and refuse to deal with the issue despite being more than intelligent enough to know what is right and what is wrong.

It’s juvenile and irresponsible to be silent about such things and then make claims that you are one of the more sensible voices of society who need to bar the will of the people and curtail true democracy because everybody else is so illogical, irresponsible, and immature.

Dissecting the Saboteur

Standard

The saboteur is an infinite time waster.

This person is lying when he says that the link provided was to the wrong page, because in a different comment, he already showed that he got to the right page:

Capturesab2

(ie. the page with more blog posts that supposedly say nothing about Dawkins or group selection, which again makes no sense because how would he know that without reading the posts? If he read them, he would see they discuss Dawkins and group selection in detail.) So obviously he did get to the right page.

Next, he keeps trying to mislead me by telling me to provide more links. For example, for the bitcoin donations, you don’t need a link. All you need is the bitcoin address which is posted up plain and clear for everyone to see.
