How to leave God and save the World:
Leaving God for Atheism requires something more from decent human beings. There is no cost but there is a need for acceptance of personal responsibility for fulfilment of one’s own life, and a personal pledge to try to make this world a better place by following The Golden Rule and taking action to advance the higher values of Humanity. Look for, support and sustain, the human attributes of altruism, compassion;honesty and integrity, empathy and kindness. Support common causes for an end to war, human rights and justice, environmental concern, elimination of religious and racist conflicts, fairness in distribution of wealth. Speak out against tyranny and injustice. Congratulate yourself for becoming a better responsible person. Be thankful that you are a child of an amazing Universe and a link in the chain of human life. Search for and work to find and support a community of likeminded people. Recognize that we are all imperfect and need to do our best to engage others to join the quest for a better world.
AFTERLIFE – WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DIE
I believe human beings are the only animals on earth who know they will someday die. This awareness caused our ancestor to ask “Where are we?” “Why are we here?” “Where did we come from?” “What happens to our beings when we die?.” In searching for answers, most of our species embraces the idea that we are children of single invisible power we call God who created us and directs the course of human lives.
During the nineteenth century Charles Darwin and other scientists discovered the evolutionary processes which had previously been invisible to humanity and are now scientifically understood. Ongoing debate exists between Religious Creationists and Evolutionists about how and when humanity was created. Creationists insist that their God created Earth and all life upon it in seven days and nights about seven thousand years ago
Most Scientists and evolutionary thinkers concluded that our Planet and all of life thereon was created by the Universe over billions of years through Evolution and that every living thing on Earth, including human life, is but a generational link in the chain of life, passing on its genetic history from each generation to the next and transforming in death from organic energy to bits of organic matter that is totally devoid of consciousness.
While living, I choose to see myself returning to the Universe in which I was born and unconsciously traveling at peace with the never ending winds of time. *** What do you think?
