Fake News and Religion

The similarity of fake news and religions became obvious on reading this. Lies, bullshit and a good story have this lack of truth in common. Fake new is just fake, as is much in religion. Both masquerade as truth. Therein lies the problem, we the people do not have time to test everything, and have assume them to be true. The more correct assumption is assume it is a lie until collaboration, or evidence is produced.

Since coming out as an Atheist, I have realized the hatred, intolerance, bigotry, ever persecution that Christian and Islam religious display toward the non religious. I was not prepared for the back lash that stating that I am an atheist caused.  Oh well.  It is true and is done.

I also had not realized the amount of intolerance that still is present in Canada 2016 toward the atheists. This is mostly from the so called Christians. Oh well, it says something about there actual beliefs, not what they claim to believe. More false self concepts. It is utterly impossible to understand that these people, who preach tolerance, understanding and love can be so intolerant, brutal, and savage. All I can say is "forgive them, for they know not what they do."

The foundation of science is the hypothesis that is supported with evidence, and is not falseafiable by any known test. Even then, any hypothesis can be questioned, but if there is no evidence, them perhaps it is true. Perhaps not also. We can assign probability, and generate a likely solution.

In reality, most people do not want to think to hard about these subjects, for they see the potential conflict and would rather just go along not openly saying anything. It is only those of us with mental issues, a need to know, or to be correct, that causes a problem for us in not knowing. Oh well.

At this season of
may reason prevail.
There are no gods,
no devils, no angels,
no heaven or hell.
There is only
our natural world.
Religion is but
myth and superstition
that hardens hearts
and enslaves minds.
