Atheist conservative aphorisms 7

To start a lively discussion, we posted these statements on our Facebook page today.

The lively discussion followed. Maybe it will follow here too.

Gods did not create Man; Man created gods.

Religion not only teaches untruth, it excludes the search for truth.

There is no Mind presiding over this universe.

Mind came into existence at this end of evolution, not before evolution began.

Existence has no purpose.

You cannot measure the value of human life because human life is the only measure of value.

Whether or not we have free will, we must live as if we have it, so to all intents and purposes we have it.

Many a belief survives persecution but not critical examination.

Justice is elusive, but judgment is inescapable.

 

(The last two are among our Articles of Reason listed under Pages in our margin.)

How we may have helped to save the economy 9

We have been told authoritatively that our article, A Fauci farce to force a recession?, was “put in the hands of the President” yesterday morning (Tuesday, March 24, 2020).

It is suspected by some of our readers who helped get it there, that the absence of Dr. Fauci from the President’s daily briefing was directly due to its persuasive message (no doubt along with many other items selected by his advisers).

We trust our informants.

We are happy to have made a contribution to getting America back to work in April and so saving the economy – and maybe frustrating an evil plot of the Left.

Again we are censored and silenced 14

Our Facebook page has again been suspended.

This time for 7 days.

Here’s the notice:

You can’t post or comment for 7 days

This is because you previously posted something that didn’t follow our Community Standards.

This post goes against our standards on hate speech, so only people who manage The Atheist Conservative can see it.

The Atheist Conservative
Yesterday at 8:21 AM

Anjuli Pandavar writes cogently and incisively: ‘I am an atheist. I think religion erodes our innate sense of ethics, and that faith can diminish our humanity. But I also accept that belief is a central component of the way many people’s heads work. The problem before us right now is Islam and I do not care if someone leaves Islam to become a Bible-basher or a Hari-Krishna chanter or an atheist. All I care about right now is that as many Muslims as possible leave Islam, that we support the victims of Islam, wherever they are in the world, and that we roll back jihad, by whatever means necessary. Muslims are already raping our daughters and we are already complicit in their deeds. The situation is dire. We are helpless in face of the jihad onslaught because we have abandoned ourselves. …

 

The entire post is quoted.

This in America! In defiance of the Second Amendment.

And yes, we do hate. We hate enslavement, torture, murder. So we hate the appalling doctrines of Islam that not only allow but command enslavement, torture and murder.   

And for that, Facebook hates us.

Of all ideas, those of religions most need to be critically examined, since they claim to be the truth and people’s lives are made to depend on their conforming to them.

Facebook suspends us 15

We’ve been informed by Facebook that we cannot post anything on our FB page “for three days”, because we have”violated” their “policies” by posting something – the video immediately below along with the same comment – that “goes against” their “Community Standards”.

President Trump’s D-Day commemoration speech 2

Today, on June 6, 2019, President Trump delivers his very moving speech commemorating D-Day in Normandy:

 

“This beach, codenamed Omaha, was defended by the Nazis with monstrous firepower, thousands and thousands of mines and spikes driven into the sands so deeply. It was here that tens of thousands of the Americans came. The G.I.s who boarded the landing craft that morning knew that they carried on their shoulders not just the pack of a soldier, but the fate of the world.”

A harmless annual institution 8

“New Year’s Day — Now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual. Yesterday, everybody smoked his last cigar, took his last drink, and swore his last oath. Today, we are a pious and exemplary community. Thirty days from now, we shall have cast our reformation to the winds and gone to cutting our ancient shortcomings considerably shorter than ever. We shall also reflect pleasantly upon how we did the same old thing last year about this time. However, go in, community. New Year’s is a harmless annual institution, of no particular use to anybody save as a scapegoat for promiscuous drunks, and friendly calls, and humbug resolutions, and we wish you to enjoy it with a looseness suited to the greatness of the occasion.” – Mark Twain, January 1863.

Happy New Year everyone!

Cheerfully we say … 8

For a long time now, Christmas has been a secular holiday; a season of feasting, of exchanging gifts and greetings of goodwill; a season when, in the north, the long nights are still warmed and lit by fire; when, north and south, evergreen trees are brought indoors and decorated. It is a season of merriment, and the enjoyment of it does not depend on belief in the religion its name implies. In the custom of the festive holiday, we wish all our readers, commenters, followers, visitors and critics, the many who are not religious as well as the fewer who are,

A Very Merry Christmas!
