To me the very fact that I know for sure the tooth fairy does not exist leaves me no reason to explain the fact to anyone else. Because , it don't matter. So why does it matter to you and why do you spend so much time on it? =
It's very simple. Because I have to live in a world that is constantly being polluted by the lowest forms of ignorance. In the world that I live in there are people that actually believe that it is perfectly acceptable (even admirable) to adopt a system of thinking that allows them to make up reality as they go along. I have to deal with people who look at the world like frightened children and arrogantly try to make it fit into what they want it to be, rather than trying to come to grips with the truth like grown ups and understand our world for what it is, warts and all. And, to put it simply......no.
I refuse to accept that. You do not get to make up reality as you see fit just because it's not what you want it to be. The way the world is now we have everyone starting to come together and truly connect and accomplish things in a way that is unprecedented in the history of our world, perhaps even our universe. We are at a point when there is so much that we could potentially achieve and more than anything I would like to see it. I would actually like to see what these primitive, ten-fingered, monkey-son fuck-ups can really do when they give themselves the chance.
However we first have a few problems to overcome. The first is our own ignorance and stupidity and at the forefront of this religion. It's an abidcation of reason, it is literally the lowest form of possible thought because it relies on emotional manipulation, bullying, and faith to garner the respect that it can never hope to earn with reason, evidence, and honest discourse. Everything about it has been so obviously designed to posion and cheapen our experience here in life. To keep us worrying, fearful, to silence our will to learn and our creativity, to teach us to only think the way we're told and never question, that our lives are meaningless without it, and to celebrate sadism and death. It is nothing less than the utter destruction and debasement of everything that truly makes us human. Advertising some of the most atrocious ideas ever dreamed of by man while making us ashamed of things that we should be proud of, and proud of things that we should be ashamed of.
Everything that science and reason has given us can be seen just by looking around us. What good has ever come about through faith that could not have come about without it? Exactly my point, religion and faith are nothing. They are as insubstantial as a meringue, and it's that insubstantiality that makes it so incredibly dangerous. Because it can literally mean anything, can be used to advocate anything, and most importantly can never be given a reality check because a mind of faith assumes its own reality.
Think of this, if I were to tell you that saying some words in Latin over a potato chip would turn it into the body of Freddy Mercury, you would think I was nuts. However if I said the same about a crakcer and the body of Christ I would only be a Catholic. Is one actually less crazy than the other?
Religion allows people to believe by the millions what only a loan psychopath could believe on his own.
*whew* Ok, rant over. Just one last thing to say that sums it up.
