Some great reading there! Thanks Reg!
On cemeteries, this is not overtly atheist, but is where I have chosen for my elements to return to the earth. It's not overtly atheist, but no toxic chemicals, no steel or concrete wasted. The body is just wrapped in a biodegradable shrowd and buried, to become part of the natural nutrient cycle. Who needs to pretend their corpse will be preserved in formaldehyde and encasement, when we all know that's not true?
Actually, Sweden is probably a good country for live atheist too :-)
Lots to read here. I better get to it!
I sometimes cringe when I hear religious people tell me about how they are certain they will be going to heaven. I almost fell embarrassed for them. They would consider themselves to be mature adults yet they persist in believing that they are immortal. In my brain I hear the phrase “Oh, not another one!” and lose interest in having any meaningful philosophical discussion with them. I used to be more considerate but now I am almost dismissive of this belief. I accept that I may be guilty of some form of elitism or intellectual snobbery but I cannot get away from the fact that I am compelled to regard such statements as too simplistic to be taken seriously.
As your Gonzo attorney I advise you to watch this.
I was imagining Hunter S. Thompson and his big Samoan attorney attending the recent candidates’ debate in Las Vegas. Listening to Trump would have induced a serious bout of Fear and Loathing!
