This guy was severely mentally ill--but he knew right from wrong.
I'm now convinced that there's no such thing as being unable to tell right from wrong.
I think it's hardwired into all of us, and the requirement is that we choose.
Life is about learning and improving. THAT is the meaning of life.
There is definitely a Creator. I've seen too much evidence to deny the existence of God.
But I'm not religious.
Religion is GREAT.
It's just not for me. I'm unable to join groups. My ideal religion would be a giant cathedral open all day and night.
We could go in and sit, and there would be clerics present to speak to us if we asked.
Although I'm not religious, I can clearly see that religions of light have far more power than Satanism.
This, for example. The power is amazing.
@ThomasWic Great thread. Right now I feel agnostic, but I fully reserve the right to be the old lady in the pew like my grandmother. Funny day today. The waitress at the Cracker Barrel gave me a Jesus Loves You card given to her by a patron. She gets them a lot she said. Who knew Cracker Barrel was ripe for proselytizing?
On Twitter, the most vicious and sustained organized assault campaign against me was by atheists. It lasted two months.
What did I do to cause it?
I said that atheism is as much an act of faith as theism. Agnosticism is the only INTELLECTUALLY defensible position.
Self-proclaimed atheists didn't even know the meaning of the word.
Atheism is the belief that God does not exist. NOT BELIEVING in God is unbelief, not atheism.
This made them attack me for two straight months.
@ThomasWic Had a therapist once who told me agnostics are non-committal atheists. I didn't agree. I meant it when I said I believe in positive portents. I just like to be honest about what I don't know. Until I figure it out my first goal is to do no harm as best I can. Sometimes I slip and act like a jerk. Nobody's perfect.
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
