Believing in fairy tales harms society!


dogmaBelieving in fairy tales harms society in all places at all times at all levels. If you want to do the right thing, do the right thing, not because you feel the threat of an imaginary Hell or want the promise of an imaginary Heaven. If you’re afraid of death, get a grip and seek out family, friends, and professionals for help, but don’t fool yourself to get that delusional comfort.

I’ll support your right to believe what you will, but I’ll speak out against non-sense and demand evidence and proof when someone tries to push non-sense on the public.

    The peculiar thing here is Harrison is trying to push his position as the “sense” position. He demands evidence from anyone who has a contrary opinion. Yet he provides no evidence that there is no heaven or hell. It would be interesting to see him try!
    He also has a cure for the fear of death, go see your uncle or something like that.
    Problem with this is uncle may be more afraid than you are. Worse still he could die before you get to him!
    But if I move back further I will pose the question of whether one should be afraid of death at all. My position is that all sensible persons should be afraid of anything that can harm them. That one should fear his enemy and always do what they can to escape from their attacks. That is why the Kenyan government is under such pressure over al Shabbat. If death is indeed our enemy, if it causes us harm, it would be foolish not to fear it. Unless of course we knew how to defeat it.
    The Christian claims that for him death has already been defeated, Harrison suggests a trip to see a relative or a proffesional ( I do not know that either has a cure for death).
    I may not here provide evidence that the Christian position is correct, but there is compelling evidence that it is.
    I know for a fact that Harrison has not provided a solution to the problem of death.
    As to what he means by “right” and how he establishes it , makes an interesting topic.
