Less fun?

Posted in Skepsos by skepsos on March 29, 2010

I just had a funny vision:
playing a ‘Ouija board’ with skeptics and being fucking bored, because ofcourse the glass never moves 🙂
But there’s plenty of fun in life without believing in ghosts!

The foxhole delusion

Posted in Skepsos by skepsos on March 24, 2010

My writing for today:

There are no sane people in foxholes.

This is a writing I based on the quote “there are no atheists in foxholes.” Theists use that one in order to ‘prove’ religion is some kind of justified default value and therefore ‘true.’
My point is: people who are about tot die in a foxhole do not necessarily have the best judgment…

Superstition

Posted in Skepsos by skepsos on March 6, 2010

As an atheist I don’t see anything wrong with the minor superstition I have; I think it’s just some kind of evolutional residu of thousands of years of religious delusion, and I think I have some kind of genetic tendency to spirituality.
It’s a bit like having a sore toe: it’s there but it’s nothing much.

The wonder of fossils

Posted in Skepsos by skepsos on March 2, 2010

When i was a geology student and dug up my very first fossil i realised that this little gracious shell had not seen sunlight for twohundredfifty million years and that i was the first living creature to set eyes on it since then, i was hit with the meaning of time, it hit me as something deeply wonderful, spiritual, poetic – sadly though none of my fellow students seemed to be in the same wonder and the majority of them was religious, but were aparantly less spiritual then me.
