The limits of power and the problem of atheism.

October 22, 2014

Atheism which literally means ‘no god’ has the notion that God doesn’t exist.

With this notion comes other reasons that the moral stance loses its limits. So from a political stand point why cannot the atheist and the religious agree.?  Quite simply, there is no balance of scripture tradition and reason. There is only reason.

Some say that scripture is antiquated because it was written too far in the past. My answer to that is human nature doesn’t change from generaton to generation. In fact in the 21st century bad things happen on a bigger scale than they did in the past.

My contention is this, the religous community have a history, have a tradition and the reasoning of some of the greatest minds the world has ever had.

For the religious, God is and there is a reason for life… For the atheist; What is the reason for life or is it no reason?   What do you think?
