The atheist evolution

Posted in Skepsos by skepsos on April 23, 2010

Atheism should be the next step in human evolution.
We can’t judge cave men (and women) for having invented religion. Consider these poor big brained creatures: they were naturally inclined to have investigative minds. They couldn’t help but wonder about the cause of everything surrounding them. I think it’s a type of questioning that is inevitable once a living organism becomes superconscious.
When you become aware of yourself and your surroundings you cannot help to ask where sunshine, rain and death comes from. The explanation will at first be: someone did this, a god.
Only if you investigate further, one can find: sunshine comes from a star, rain comes from the clowds and death is corrosion.
Now, since we are not cave men (or cave women or cave transgenders) anymore: isn’t it time we set aside our first hypotheses completely?

    i like your idea, but until we can answer ALL the questions, we can’t discount god…. so the next evolution should be greater knowledge BEFORE judging

    What do you mean by ‘judging’?
    Truth is not judging.
    And not having answers to everything, doesn’t mean there is a god.
    Come on dear: just stop believeing there is a god… It’s not that hard.
