Why does God only choose a few of us to save?

I am repeating my answer here from one I gave on Quora To answer the question posed by the title: You haven’t stated your religion, so I’m going to assume that you believe in the type of god from the Abrahamic Tradition, the Judeo-Christian-Islamic God.

Atheist Ethics and Abortion

Some atheists seem to have strongly held beliefs about a whole host of things that have nothing to do with the existence or non-existence any deity/god/supreme being. And they are not always as clear about the evidence behind  those beliefs as they could be.  For example, there is the ‘supernatural’. Most atheists do not believe in any form … Continue reading »

The Spirit of Enquiry

Doubt is the basis of all scientific progress. Without doubt, there is no enquiry, and without enquiry, there is no progress. Every scientific advance we have made is because of the spirit of enquiry. We have to question ourselves constantly. Even with an expected result in an experiment, the scientist thinks, “Perhaps this is not … Continue reading »

Confirmation Bias Following the blogs, there has been a lot of discussion lately about the effects of confirmation bias on the thoughts and behaviour of those people of a religious bent.

There is nothing wrong with religion…

There is nothing wrong with religion… Except their belief systems, their perpetuation by pedophile preachers, their teachings, bigotry, insane prophets, murders, holy books, (and I mean there are a lot of holes in them), lack of critical thinking and logic, tortuous histories, anti-science outlooks, indoctrination of the young, claims to be any kind of guide … Continue reading »

On Fish and Faith

It may not be immediately obvious that faith is a bad thing about religion, but some thought on the subject makes it clear. We hear of someone being called a man or woman of faith, and that brings a certain amount of respect in religious circles. They may even be given that respect in secular … Continue reading »

Awakening from the Religious Daze

This is the beginning of the New Age of Atheism, when humans are awakening from the religious daze they have been in for aeons, and beginning to realise that they have been fooled by preachers long enough – and what they previously believed not only has no basis in reality, but is actually very funny … Continue reading »

On Self-Belief

One way to look at religion is that there is a great comfort to be had by the mental connection with an invisible friend, whom some people call God. When things go wrong those of faith have a shoulder to lean on, and this helps them to feel that everything is eventually going to be okay. … Continue reading »

Religion and Humour

Religion puts itself on a pedestal against criticism and against humour, using outdated laws, self-righteous pomposity and occasionally murder, to protect itself. Try to make a film that depicts Jesus as gay and you can still be charged with blasphemy in the UK. Criticise Mohammed in a cartoon and suicide bombers will be quickly trained … Continue reading »
