Paarsurrey comments:

Instead of complaining against religious education the Atheism people should ask room for imparting their own no-creeds stance. They don’t have anything like that so they only insist on not giving any religious education. In a way it only acknowledges their failure of their viewpoint. Right, please?

It is just Pope’s opinion. Jesus did not say anything like that. Pope should have quoted something from Jesus in support of his assertion.

“Evolution Of The Devil”

Paarsurrey says:

It is a wrong notion. The source of truthful revealed religion is “Revelation” from the One-True-God whatever the religion. The Buddhism and the Hinduism or Christian or Judaism scriptures don’t have presently the original Revelation  intact with them , to infer from them the “Evolution of the Devil” cannot be correct. To get the correct concept one should read Quran.

Buddhism in America

January 28, 2018

Just to introduce a good article on the subject:

“At the same time, early scholars of world religions such as Paul Carusmade Buddhist teachings readily accessible to Americans. He published The Gospel of Buddha, a best-selling collection of Buddhist parables, a year after attending the World Parliament of Religions in Chicago in 1893. This was the first time in modern history that representatives from the world’s major religions came together to learn about one another’s spiritual traditions.”

“The Christian Right’s Relentless Assault on Public Education”

“The Christian Right’s Relentless Assault on Public Education”
JANUARY 22, 2018 BY ED BRAYTON

Patheos- Nonreligious: Read more at http://www.patheos.com/blogs/dispatches/2018/01/22/christian-rights-relentless-assault-public-education/#8brcTSB3WC7tYGGY.99

I have read the above article and have noted the following points:

  1. All people have inherent worth and equality and are ‘endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights,’” Zahn said.
  2. “These foundational and historical American values did not spring from the cornucopia of ‘world religions,’ but specifically from the Judeo-Christian scriptures.”
  3. But in reality, those ideals required a rejection of historical Christianity as it was conceived up to that point for hundreds and hundreds of years.
  4. Those ideas came largely from Enlightenment humanism and their opposition came primarily from the churches. It was only long after they were adopted almost universally that Christianity was redefined and they claimed credit for what they had rejected for centuries.
  5. considering a billto allow old-fashioned creationism in science classrooms as an alternative to the teaching of evolution.

I have my reservations on the above points and I intend to comment on them on the above website and give them here also for the readers.

All people born in this world without exception have worth and are equal as human being. It is a global truth. Religion, whatever religion it is, they have a right to claim that these have been endowed by God. The Atheist could deny it as their own right. Right, please?

Religion 

I also have a section dedicated to religion – Christianity in general. YES, it does belong in the fantasy category too!

I have written the odd article over the last few years. If you’re a fundamentalist Christian they’ll probably bring out the so-called righteous anger of God in you… either that or you will block your ears as so many Christians do and shout out “I can’t hear you, I can’t hear you!” or make silly claims that I’m misrepresenting the bible when I’m not. If you’re an atheist or agnostic you’ll be sure to get plenty of chuckles. If you’re none of the above, then hopefully they will at least give you food for thought.
