Connolly’s Socialist Party on Religion: A Model for any Socialist Organization

I have posted this image here before but I think it deserves another post because to me it is so fundamental. I think one of the Bolsheviks biggest mistakes was foregoing this principle, the Bolshevik Party accepted religious members but the party itself was inherently atheistic. On this issue I side with the party of …

On Islam and Christianity: Then and Now

When I look at the world back in the old days, and then again now I have to say it's funny how times have changed. Christians don't hold your head so high, lest we forget that it was in the name of our faith that the church burned those who were different and suppressed the …

If you see a ghost confront it and demand proof of its existence

When people claim to see ghosts they always say they ran, but if you see a ghost do not run. Confront the ghost, demand evidence of its existence through the attainment of divine or religious knowledge which you can later confirm (assuming you do not already know it) and thus prove the existence of the …

On using the phrase “God is in control” to passively stand by

"God is in control" may be true, but it is certainly no excuse to passively accept injustice, or any form of oppression or exploitation. God didn't stop Hitler, people did. Now you can argue that God works through people, and therefore through the material forces of the universe whose laws he set into motion, but …

A Simple Critique of Religious Fundamentalism, Militant Atheism, and The Universe in General

A Critique of Religious Fundamentalism and Denial of Science I have long since abandoned young earth creationism, the denial of basic science as a prerequisite for my belief in God. It caused me to completely lose my faith, it's a miracle I came back to it. You cannot convince people to follow your religion if …

God and an Untraditional Materialist Conception of The Universe

The language of the material universe is mathematics. Down to the smallest atom and even beyond that to the quarks which hold the atoms together and up to the grandest structures in the observable universe. The mystical conception of God has more and more become obsolete. Does this mean God is disappearing from our conceptions …

On separation of Church and State

I believe in absolute separation of church and state. What I mean by this is absolute separation of the church from the state and absolute separation of the state from the church. Never do I believe that the intertwining of any religious institution with the state can benefit society at large. We all know examples …

Consent and Existence

It is impossible to give consent to be thrust into existence, into consciousness. For to consent implies that existence, that consciousness already exists. Thus we have a universal injustice, a universal truth until it is proven false by some psychedelic madness. So what is the nature of existence? Chaos would imply that whatever wretched beast …
