May 21st 2011 Doomsday.. Blind Belief

There is so much I can say here about what just happened. I am resisting the temptation to call these “believers” suckers. I mean these people refused to think for themselves and will now pay the price for blind faith.  While we may laugh at them, we should always rethink on own belief system, which may still contain dogma that is impeding our progress as people living their lives untainted by dogma.

Evolution of Christianity

For a religion that does not believe in evolution. Here is another reason they should believe in it. How about tracing the evolution of their scriptures. Check this article about how the scholars are working to evolve the bible based on newer discoveries afforded by science.

Below is an excerpt from this article

“It’s purely a coincidence, but U.S. Catholics and Protestants alike are being introduced this Easter season to separate “official” updated translations of the Christian Bible, which arrive in the year the magisterial King James Version celebrates its 400th birthday.

But with millions of dollars in publishing revenue and the trust of millions of churchgoers hanging in the balance, the new versions aren’t being met with universal acceptance.

While the changes may seem small, they are resounding throughout Christianity, whose many denominations formed or broke off from others over clashing interpretations of God’s word.

The two new translations touch on some of the most sensitive issues behind those differences, particularly on the inequality of women in society and on the divinity of Mary and — by extension — the birth of Jesus. ”

You believe in Astrology?

Well think again on what it is based on. What if the fundamentals of astrology are on shifting sand? Do you think than perhaps astrology is actually just a psychological play on setting expectations, vying off common human worries etc?

Read the article below and decide for yourself. (Note this is an excerpt from the link below.)

Earth’s ‘wobble’ means your zodiac sign may be wrong

By Liz Goodwin

Thu Jan 13, 12:57 pm ET
A Minnesota astronomer confirms what many have suspected: Your horoscope is quite possibly wrong.

Earth’s shifts on its axis over the past 3,000 years have changed the 12 zodiac signs. For example, think your sign is Aquarius? You may be a Pisces. (There’s also a 13th sign, Ophiuchus, that’s based on a constellation the ancient Babylonians threw out for symmetry thousands of years ago.)

So who’s to blame for this scam on zodiac devotees?

The ancient Babylonians based the zodiac on which constellation the sun appeared to be in when a person was born. Since then, the moon’s has exerted a gravitation pull on Earth, causing a “wobble” on its axis that has shifted the stars’ alignment by about a month, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports.

“Because of this change in the tilt, the Earth is over here and the sun is in a different constellation than it was 3,000 years ago when this study of the stars began,” astronomer Parke Kunkle told the Twin Cities’ KARE-TV.

The shift isn’t new, Kunkle says — the zodiac world just hasn’t taken the wobble into account.

Here’s your new sign below:

Capricorn: Jan. 20-Feb. 16

Aquarius: Feb. 16-March 11

Pisces: March 11-April 18

Aries: April 18-May 13

Taurus: May 13-June 21

Gemini: June 21-July 20

Cancer: July 20-Aug. 10

Leo: Aug. 10-Sept. 16

Virgo: Sept. 16-Oct. 30

Libra: Oct. 30-Nov. 23

Scorpio: Nov. 23-Nov. 29

Ophiuchus: Nov. 29-Dec. 17

Sagittarius: Dec. 17-Jan. 20

Problems of Religion

It takes guts to say what this man (Sam Harris) is saying. It is so important to hear this man out and wake up from the delusion we have been born into. “Think for yourself” is what we preach and all we ask when you hear this man is to keep an open mind. The truth about the real god lies behind the concocted words of many a religions.
