Today's science fiction is tomorrow's science fact.
--- Isaac Asimov

Do you know right now what we will know tomorrow as fact? Then shut up and listen. You're talking about what you do not know as if you knew.

Myth is the truth of fact, not fact the truth of myth.
--- James Campbell

God is a metaphor for a mystery that absolutely transcends all human categories of thought, even the categories of being and non-being. Those are categories of thought. I mean it's as simple as that. So it depends on how much you want to think about it. Whether it's doing you any good. Whether it is putting you in touch with the mystery that's the ground of your own being. If it isn't, well, it's a lie. So half the people in the world are religious people who think that their metaphors are facts. Those are what we call theists. The other half are people who know that the metaphors are not facts. And so, they're lies. Those are the atheists.
--- Ibid

There are frauds and failures among scientists, judges, leaders and holy men, just as there are the wise, the just, the enlightened and the blessed. Only children and fools take things at face value, thinking that there is nothing more to a thing than that. The mystery is far beyond the face value of facts. That is why it remains a mystery which children grow to appreciate while fools ever puzzle over the mystery, treating it as either fact or lie. It is neither.

When one is born in a Catholic family one is immediately Baptised, one receives the Holy Eucharist at age 6/7/8 or maybe later and Confirmed at age 7/9/11 or maybe later.


Dear DL, you can become whatever or whomever you want but the reality is if you received all the above......

You are a CATHOLIC FOREVER and EVER.

Amen.....

Catholicism, Protestantism, atheism, Buddhism, vegetarianism, pacifism, imperialism, socialism, capitalism, stoicism, hedonism....

...all have their benefits and their faults. Best not to put all your faith in any one of them.

True.

The idol worshiping religions should still be fought against thanks to the damage they continue to do.

Both Christianity and Islam have basically developed into intolerant, homophobic and misogynous religions. Both religions have grown themselves by the sword instead of good deeds and continue with their immoral ways in spite of secular law showing them the moral ways.

Jesus said we would know his people by their works and deeds. That means Jesus would not recognize Christians and Muslims as his people, and neither do I. Jesus would call Christianity and Islam abominations.

Gnostic Christians did in the past, and I am proudly continuing that tradition and honest irrefutable evaluation based on morality.

Meaningless man conceived sacraments are not chains.

You might have a point on the labels people cling to though.

In the Netherlands, for instance, 95% of those who label themselves as Christian, have only about 4% who ever go into a church even once a year.

That indicates that most Christians are hypocrites or just cannot let go of a useless label that places them into an immoral religion.

I have said the same about Yahweh and Allah.

And so you decide that non practicing Dutch Christians be labeled either or
Perhaps many of them simply value their heritage and history wich are deeply untwined with Christianity
Perhaps they value the continuity of observing rituals that have been part of the fabric of their culture for generations even tho they put no literal interpretations on the fictional morality tales that are ritually repeated at village social functions
The problem with your little revolution is that like all revolutionaries you would throw out the baby with the bath water
