“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.

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.

This just gives more credence to my theory:

Reversed Sexual Repression

The Undie Drawer

A really insane new story is making the rounds right now, published by a young woman who was kicked out of her prom for supposedly forcing a bunch of on-looking fathers to experience ‘impure’ thoughts.
