Religia: iudeo-crestin agnostic si, la nevoie, ateu



Am dat astazi peste* evolutionarychristianity.com - un site care gazduieste o multime de voci similare Oxigenului familiar multora dintre noi. Initiatorul site-ului, Michael Dowd, fost catolic, fost penticostal, propune o noua reforma a crestinismului, ba chiar a religiei in general, numita "evidential Reformation". Ce credeti: are crestinismul (omul religios) sansa sa renasca? Dowd insusi e o interesanta intilnire intre naturalism si religie.

* Site-ul a mai fost recomandat de sisif aici.

Iata un fragment dintr-o predica a lui Dowd (il gasiti aici):

QUOTE
An unnatural king who occasionally engages in unnatural acts sends his unnatural son to Earth in an unnatural way. He’s born an unnatural birth, lives an unnatural life, performs unnatural deeds, and is killed and unnaturally rises from the dead in order to redeem humanity from an unnatural curse brought about by an unnaturally talking snake. After 40 days of unnatural appearances he unnaturally zooms off to heaven to return to his unnatural father, sit on an unnatural throne, and unnaturally judge the living and the dead. If you profess to believe in all this unnatural activity, you and your fellow believers get to spend an unnaturally long time in an unnaturally boring paradise while everyone else suffers an unnatural, torturous hell forever.

Dowd nu stie probabil ca sint crestini care cred ca si moartea lui Isus a fost supranaturala ("a doua moarte", nu?).

Religia: agnostic



Tot din ciclul cum sa-ti pierzi credinta ca sa fii mantuit sunt si rezultatele unui studiu recent:

QUOTE
“Love thy neighbor” is preached from many a pulpit. But new research from the University of California, Berkeley, suggests that the highly religious are less motivated by compassion when helping a stranger than are atheists, agnostics and less religious people.

“Overall, we find that for less religious people, the strength of their emotional connection to another person is critical to whether they will help that person or not,” said UC Berkeley social psychologist Robb Willer, a co-author of the study. “The more religious, on the other hand, may ground their generosity less in emotion, and more in other factors such as doctrine, a communal identity, or reputational concerns.”

"Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call to her tribunal every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blindfolded fear."
