Unlike religion, science cannot offer the bereaved a glorious reunion with their loved ones in the hereafter. Those wronged on this earth cannot, on a scientific view, anticipate a sweet comeuppance for their tormentors in a life to come. It could be argued that, if the idea of an afterlife is an illusion (as I believe it is), the consolation it offers is hollow. But that’s not necessarily so; a false belief can be just as comforting as a true one, provided the believer never discovers its falsity. Richard Dawkins, excerpt from Is Science a Religion?

If someone needs your help, don’t just ‘pray for him/her.’

Donate your time.  Donate your money.  Do SOMETHING.  Putting positive energy out into the universe is a good start (regardless of your religion), but it’s nowhere near enough.  Prayer is not going to pay his medical bills.  Prayer is not going to make her stop drinking.  If you want to help someone, don’t just pray- HELP THEM.

Religion Rant: The general public’s lack of understanding about agnosticism is frustrating.

Theists (like Christians, Jewish faith members, etc) are people who are certain that religion is real.  Atheists are people who are certain all religions are fake.  

Agnostics like myself believe there isn’t enough evidence to verify or disprove either of those two side’s arguments.  We may lean more towards one side or the other, but we are often pretty neutral.

Agreed, but people GOTTA start using New Testament quotes (most of these are from the Old Testament).  A lot of Christians don’t think the Old Testament applies to them (which, again, is just picking and choosing what to believe but yeah).  Still, New Testament ridiculous quotes are the way to go if you’re gonna argue with someone about this.

He is risen! (whatever that means)

Zombie or something I assume.

Then I was inspired, now I’m sad and tired. After all, I’ve tried for three years- and it seems like ninety… so why then am I scared to finish what I started? What YOU started. I didn’t start it! God, thy will is hard, but you hold every card. I will drink your cup of poison- nail me to your cross and break me. Bleed me, beat me, KILL me! Take me now before I change my mind. Jesus Christ Superstar

This video has gone viral, but I don’t really see the message he’s trying to get across.
