Thanksgiving: I am Thankful for a God-Free Universe

It’s that time of year again. It’s time to be thankful for the good things in life. But unlike when I was younger (and religious/superstitious), I now give thanks to human progress, not to some invisible (imaginary) being in the sky.

One only has to read the history books to see the countless millions who have suffered from the consequences of belief in the supernatural. Human sacrifices and witch burnings. The oppression of women and minorities. Assigning blame to human “sin” for disease, famine, droughts, the death of a child, and other tragedies.

So let’s be thankful this Thanksgiving. Let’s be thankful that belief in gods and devils is dying in the educated West. Let’s hope (not pray) that more of humanity will be exposed to the true Good News: the joy of life without the fear of capricious gods.

  1. It seems that you have been very hurt by religion, and as such, have been left with a confused state it mind.
    ALL religions are man made. Have you ever considered searching outside the religious institutions for the one true God?

    1. Yes I did. What I found is that there is no good evidence that our creator allows the supernatural to operate within our universe. There is no good evidence that the laws of physics have ever been violated within our universe. Not even once.

      Therefore, this eliminates the god of Judaism, the god of Christianity, the god of Islam, and the gods of Hinduism, all of whom claim to perform laws of physics defying “miracles”.

      This leads me to believe that our creator either made a conscious choice never to use the supernatural after he(she/they/or it) created our universe, or our creator does not have supernatural powers. My guess is that our creator was a mad scientist in another universe whose experiment went awry and BANG…our universe came into existence.
