Let see what exactly is an “Agnostic”?
Well described in the Merriam Websters dictionary, an Agnostic is………………….
1.a person who holds the view that any ultimate reality (as God) is unknown and probably unknowable; broadly : one who is not committed to believing in either the existence or the nonexistence of God or a god
So lets expand upon this definition. Agnosticism could then be called the ultimate of altruism and , well, altruistic is what most under the religious umbrella would have you believe they are, when in fact they are not.
Would it not make a better world to believe that there are many beliefs and that maybe, just maybe, all of them combined could be the answers so many seek. The answers that soooo many seek must be answered as well.
Why are so many seeking answers, answers that may, just may, not even be there? Well maybe from birth these seeker have been told and brainwashed to believe that certain questions need to be answered and that they just can’t live a decent life with out those answers. Maybe the seekers are just curious and want to know. Is it the questions that needs to be answered or is it the answers that need to be questioned? Hmmm. Yes ponder on that one.
Why then while all the fighting and bickering goes on (about this or that belief) is not the question of Agnosticism raised? Well lets see. Could it be that this unique area might just be the answer to bring all the others together under one umbrella to view from a higher platform the overwhelming need in humans to want answers and to believe in something? Is this a way of having something that will not make the human feel small, insignificant, and really, well useless? For that is what we have become . Building the biggest this or that, building the tallest this or that – what does this signify except that humans are just too weak.
Try feeding the hungry ; try housing the homeless; try anything to help humanity instead of building bigger, better, faster, fighting and bickering just to satisfy an ego… ego – that fuzzy little ball inside an insecure little human brain. . Ego – hmmmm it’s like, well it’s like the result of a closed and weak minded individual that needs constantly to be correct or “on top of it” or in charge of the situation, territorial, mass insecurity in its own shell. Ego so fragile like a chicken egg, or like a little baby’s feelings. So needed to be protected from any and all outside influence or suggestion of a more logical, or better way of doing something. Even just a suggestion of influence can crush the ego to the point of this closing off and not allowing any other thought but what is encased. An agnostic has an open mind to the many and very different ways of believing, and that means in beliefs about everything.
The earth and mind are in constant motion and constant evolution, evolving hour by hour. If this motion is allowed to become stagnant, it then becomes toxic and fouled, open to breed the worst kind of ailments known, both mentally and physically. This stagnation is what feeds ego and drives ego to the stop position. The stop position that creates all the barriers that actually hold humans back from a more natural life on the planet. The religious organizations of today are so steeped in this stagnation, “deaf, mute and blind” to reality. Living in belief’s that are thousands of years old, long past their due dates.
What drives these organizations to maintain their out dated fighting and bickering ?? Only stuck ego. That is all. Fortunately most of the world has evolved mentally now to understand that this is so, and is trying to move toward a more fair system of belief. “Live and let live” so to speak. However, unfortunately there is small group of people who control and manipulate these ancient beliefs to satisfy their own sick, diseased, and stagnated egos.
With out this control and manipulation the stagnant waters could not breed the Wars, Weapons, Wages of Inhumane and Unjust treatments that have and are now being perpetrated on the innocents of planet earth. People who believe still in these ancient beliefs are now considered (by mainstream) to be just “freaks of nature”, or just “freaks” period. While the rest of the world moves with evolution these “freaks” stagnate even further in their egotistical quagmire.
Stephen Hawkings tells us that there may be “aliens out there”. How credible he is we can’t be sure, however the possibility is real. If there is intelligence out there, then their intelligence (upon seeing what is happening here) would tell them to turn and run like “HELL”
LETS GIVE AGNOSTICS THE CHANCE THAT EVERY OTHER BELIEF HAS HAD .
Why do people think that they require religion to be good? See it as just the opposite!.
An article was printed a while back that began with “as long as there has been one true god there has been killing in it’s name.” Religion more than any other human issue in the history of the world is the direct cause for more murder, mayhem and bloodshed than anything else. Islam kills the infidel, Christianity kills the spirit and Judaism kills everything else. Why modern humans still feel the need for this antiquated form of faith in a higher power is beyond sense and sensibility.
Believe that anything is possible, so, there may in fact be a divine creator, but it IS NOT this long haired old man from the Bible. Then too, many Jews have stated that their own Rabbis tell them that there actually is no god.
Thankfully, we are in the age of enlightenment or awakening, yet I suspect it will take a mass awakening before humans are willing to let go of this religious crutch. Why? Because then they would have to depend upon themselves and most are not willing to do that.
LETS GIVE AGNOSTICS THE CHANCE THAT EVERY OTHER BELIEF HAS HAD! Lets make everything perfectly clear so as not to be called “ name callers”
