pinoy atheist's blog
I saw this article from pro-Life Philippines. It has something to do on how an 8 year old kid explains God. Well, for believers this article is kind of cute, but for critical analysis, it’s quite dangerous.
In the article the kid said “If you don’t believe in God, besides being an atheist, you will be very lonely, because your parents can’t go everywhere with you, like to camp, but God can. It is good to know He’s around you when you’re scared in the dark or when you can’t swim and you get thrown into real deep water by big kids.”
Well how nice, but does that make a kid too dependent and does that make him too irresponsible?
It’s funny how people rely on blatant propaganda to insist something. Some even have to twist facts in order to inject to dull minds their dull ideas. Just as example, a Catholic friend of mine handed me this article from a certain Fr. Roy Cimagala. I think it’s some kind of propaganda against communism. Come on, does Cimagala have to inject atheism in his show? Or maybe, just maybe, Cimagala doesn’t even know what he’s talking about.
So let’s see what he’s up to.
According to this Cimalaga,
“It's when they are wrongly inspired, or when they overstep their limits, oversimplifying or exaggerating things, absolutizing the
What happened when a man lost his faith?
Most people will say that he will become an atheist. Others will say he will just look for a new religion. These frequent answers are the reason why most people think that atheism is a religion and that all atheists are a bunch of angry, cynical theists who just hate God.
I really don’t think that a person angry with his religion or angry at god is automatically considered as an atheist. There are a lot of ways to handle such anger other than going to non-belief. Heck! This is just a reason a Christian believer would like to happen. You know, angry theists are very easily to be converted or re-converted.
I was surprise to find out that Dr. Christina Yang (portrait by Sandra Oh) from the TV series Grey's Anatomy is an atheist. Well, she said it herself, she doesn’t believe in Santa Clause and she doesn’t believe in God.
The episode was about this kid who’s getting a heart transplant. His mother keeps telling him that his heart came from Santa Clause, yet the kid figure it out that it was all a lie. Dr. Preston Burke (played by Isaiah Washington), the cardiothoracic surgeon (I think he’s Dr. Yang’s boyfriend) had an argument about this and was kind of insulted about Dr. Yang’s attitude towards his religion…’er spirituality as what he wanted to call it. For Dr. Yang spirituality and religion is just the same. Dr. Yang’s boyfriend says that the reason he considers a being “higher than himself” is because without it he feel very helpless.
