2 heavy assaults on the Indian Culture due to Colonialism/Modernity.

1. Instilled disbelief in Moksha
2. Equated Dharma to Religion

This has drifted us away from our Natural Destiny.

This #Thread is about how Point-1 has spawned a peculiar version of #Atheism in our times.

Viewed from the lens of Chaturvidha-Purushartha (Dharma, Artha, Kama, Moksha) & see who stands where. There 5 Segments (respectfully used terms).

1. Left Liberal Seculars
2. Dharmic Athiests
3. Dharmic Artha Sarvopari-s
4. Dharmic Non-Literalists
5. Dharmic Literalists

1. Left Liberal Seculars (A wide spectrum collapsed into one)

- Moksha is hoax for them
- Dharma ranges from being a good idea to a hoax but not a reality
- (Excessive) Kama is Supreme and (Myopic) Artha must serve that purpose
- Panchendriya and Arishadvarga reign supreme

🧵 Many Muslims often attempt to warn me and many of my atheist friends of the inevitable death.

So what is going to happen to me as an ExMuslim atheist after I die? Let's discuss... 1/10
#Atheism #Life #Heaven #Hell #Islam Image
All living things eventually die. So I am not so sure what is so earth-shatteringly scary about death. Yes, nobody wants to die and everyone wants to prolong their lives (including animals) but living life under a constant fear of death is not how I want to live my life. 2/10
The key message of Abrahamic religions is to scare people about death, when nobody factually knows what happens after death, if anything at all. Fear of the unknown is quite natural but some of us do not want to spend the rest of our lives living under that constant fear. 3/10

1. Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior, The Son Of God, The Way, The Truth, and The Life. There is only One God.
2. The Rainbow represents a promise, not a perversion. #TakingTheRainbowBack
3.Progressivism is the twisting of truth and an instrument of the devil.
4. God created the Male and Female. Just because the concepts of multiple genders has existed in Ancient times doesn't make it true. Just like saying the Jews are a rejected people. It is simply not true. (2/6)
5. Homosexuality is a sin. Do not think that God does not love you. He loves you so much, but He loves you too much to let you keep sinning. I ask any who are homosexual, please repent and turn to Christ. He loves you and wants to be with you! (3/6)

Thread on Atheism 🔥🙏🏼🤔

1/ As an atheist, I've often been told that I'm soulless, immoral, and a danger to society. But that couldn't be further from the truth. Atheism is simply the absence of belief in a god or gods.
2/ For me, atheism is about finding meaning and purpose in this life, rather than waiting for an afterlife. It's about taking responsibility for my own actions and making the most of the time I have here on earth. 🌍💪🏼
3/ Atheism doesn't mean I hate religion or religious people. It means I respect their right to believe what they want, as long as it doesn't harm others. 🤝🏼👍🏼

Goons barged into a Church in Delhi NCR & disrupted Sunday worship service on Feb 26. They got Pastor Santosh Abraham & his wife arrested! In this "free" country any Christian can be booked on as baseless an allegation as "forced conversion"
@USCIRF @India_NHRC @INCIndia @hrw
If voters, swayed by attractive poll promises, change political allegiance, do they get to sue party leaders for "forced conversion"? If not, why are religious leaders prosecuted for others' religious choice?

@INCIndia @BJP4India @cpimspeak @AamAadmiParty @the_hindu @ttindia
Political leaders know how difficult it is to convince even the poorest of Indians to vote for them. If you can't FORCE intelligent Indians to vote in your favor, what wave of folly makes you think Indians can be FORCED to change their religion? Don't insult an Indian's wisdom.

I've been cogitating a strange notion lately—an intuition, one that's a bit tricky to explain.

permit me to state my assumptions: I believe that it's possible to assign the general label of "Christian God" to something *concrete*, and which is in fact quite small.

this is where I've always differed from the atheists: I've always felt that "God" wasn't a nonexistent entity, but rather an entity that was something different, something smaller and more limited, than what #Christian doctrine (and Western culture) claims about their God.

Dr. @RichardDawkins supplied a hint: it's possible that "God" is memetic in nature.

Dawkins hasn't (to my knowledge) ever analyzed the matter further—maybe because it threatened the rigidity of his #atheism to admit that God had *some* sort of existence, even a weak one.

#skepticism, as a movement, seemed inviting in the 1980s. @RonaldReagan was in power, with the full cooperation of American #journalism and #media. @TheDemocrats try to pretend that the @realDonaldTrump phenomenon was worse, but...Reagan's clown show started the trend.

the @RonaldReagan cabinet was much like @Quillette or @SubstackInc is these days: a loose aggregation of crooks and cranks, miscellaneous right-wing ideologues who did badly in professional life and were inclined to blame "liberals" or "the government" for their problems.

making wild, unsubstantiated claims was now the *in* thing, during @RonaldReagan's figurehead presidency—that's the real power a president has over a country, by the way.

people consciously or sub-consciously copy how a president talks. especially, they copy the *jokes*.

I am not an #atheist

my daughter Alyx Woodward is, however—she's also the daughter of a *god*, but has ambitions of proving—somehow—either that Loki does not exist, or can be reduced to a superfluity, a mere error term in an equation somewhere, perhaps. gods *annoy* her.

I'm not an atheist but neither am I religious. I feel no particular need to act upon my spiritual beliefs, which are at any rate quite vague. I may be a unicorn, but I'm also rather practically minded; I leave religious matters to Chara and Kris and their various friends.

I will tell you, however, that I have little respect for #atheism, the way it's currently done.

its loudest exponents are shallow, superficial, ignorant (and profoundly racıst) men like @michaelshermer and @RichardDawkins, who show no clear understanding even of science.

Here's where you can lead disingenuous partisans like Ted Cruz when they insist declining church attendance causes gun deaths. Sad fact is gun deaths RISE w/the % of state who attends weekly & they FALL as the % of a state who seldom/never attends increases. Strong correlations.
But why stop there? Here we see gun deaths also rise with the percent of a state's adult population who is Evangelical Protestant. A VERY strong correlation, in fact. (Religion data taken from Pew Religious Landscape Study, btw)
And one more. Here we see gun deaths FALL as the percent of a state's adult population who is religiously unaffiliated increases. Not as strong a correlation ("unaffiliated" is a problematic catch-all). But definitely DOES NOT show declining connection to religion ➡️ gun deaths.

"What's the Objective of Atheism" asked in a group.

There is no objective of #atheism.

In philosophy of religion its usually understood as the proposition gods do not exist. The #atheist believes this proposition true.

Colloquially it is understood as a lack of belief in gods.
There is, however, #atheist activism which seeks #secular society. This can be referred to as anti-theism rather than #atheism though.

Anti-theism, in the strongest sense, is the belief no one should be theist (believe in gods).
There are some today who conflate philosophical atheism (belief gods do not exist) with anti-theism.

If that were true & the anti- prefix doesn't mean against/opposing and means belief not:

Antivaxxers believe vaccines don't exist
Antiabortionists believe abortions don't exist

#Thread -Meaning of life #Atheism

Suppose u get up & realised that u r on a train, that's going somewhere. What would be the first que that will pop up in ur mind?

Hopefully, it is during ur life, u ask urself this question-what am I doing here or what is this all about?
Unfortunately, with materialism & atheism, we have ignored this most important question. Actually, its very easy to ignore this issue, its easy to be like “I don’t wanna think about it”, “I just want focus on XYZ things” etc. Its very convenient to just keep living & be busy.
But one need to ask this question & have a moment of reflection. What if u are sitting on ur death bed & u get a chance to ask urself, what was it all about? What I was trying to accomplish & what is going to happen now?

Thread: #Atheism
Consciousness is a proof for the existence of God.

What is consciousness?

It is the state of being aware of one’s surroundings or it is the first-person experience. Let’s say I eat a pie, the experience that I get from it, can only be felt by me OR....

How do u explain colours to a colour blind person or any one for that matter- I mean what do you feel after seeing red, green etc? U may call it beautiful or call pie as sweet -but what exactly I felt? Can u measure it or can u put it under the microscope to explain it?

Science which is considered the ultimate source of knowledge fails to answer this. It is a mystery that can not be deciphered using science.

In philosophy it is called the hard problem of consciousness (u may google it).

A challenge to moral realists || Thoughts on the moral argument for God and a treatise on morality.
Here's my challenge to moral realists. Prove that objective morality exists. But here are 3 disclaimers before doing so;
1) You can't use the fact that you have a sense of morality as an argument. Different people might have varying sense of morals. That is in fact the definition of being subjective. Since you are vehemently opposed to subjective morality, personal opinions don't count.

भारत मे नास्तिकता तेजी से बढ़ रही है। ये पहले भी होती थी, पर भारत की आत्मा के विरुद्ध कम ही हुई। लेकिन अब के नास्तिक असफल मार्क्सवाद की बीमारी से पीड़ित हैं जो भारत की आत्मा को ही नष्ट कर देना चाहते हैं
#StupidAtheists #Atheist #AntiNational #Atheism
ये नास्तिक बड़े दयालु होते हैं। कुत्ते-बिल्ली को मारने की वीडियो आये तो तुरंत क्रोध करते हैं कि जानवरो को मत मारो। फिर चिकन-मटन खाते हैं। चिकन-मटन में इन्हें मुर्गे-बकरे पर दया नहीं आती जिन्हें इनके खाने के लिये मार दिया गया।गाय तो इन्हें दया है ही नहीं,वो तो चिढ़ाने का माध्यम है
ये नास्तिक अल्पसंख्यकों के लिये तुरंत खड़े हो जाते हैं,इसमे उन्हें संविधान याद आता है। पर हिंदुओं के सभी विषयों पर आंखें बंद होती हैं। वैसे हमे इनकी सहानुभूति नहीं चाहिए। सत्य ये है कि ये राजनैतिक नास्तिक हैं जिनकी नास्तिकता में राजनीति छिपी होती है #Atheist #Atheism

@godless_mom Of course #atheists don’t believe in #BigLegoism. That would be stupid.
They believe in #BigBangism which is their mindless substitute for the Designer and Creator of the phenomenally interactive “table” of atomic elements found on Earth — but not in any star.
@godless_mom The #FlatUniverse didn't always fart new #MultiVerses out of its #BlackHoles until #atheist "theoretical physicists" like #NeildeGrasseTyson, who believe in #MythMath, said so.
#FlatEarth #FlatulentEarth
@godless_mom Believe it or not, the micro-moment of the #BigLegoism self-creation of the #LegoUniverse was captured on video.
#Atheists aren’t allowed to believe this because they are only allowed to believe in #BigBangism, which wasn’t captured on #YouTube video.

❇️ Thread, #Atheism

1️⃣ I don’t know if you’re an atheist or not but you look like one.

Thanks, it’s a great time to enlighten people about the heinous truth of Atheism that most of people don’t know.


Peace, blessing & mercy of Allah be upon you 🌹❤️😊
2️⃣ Most of atheists are ignorant, don’t understand the implications of the logical & realistic necessity of #Atheism. Let’s make efforts to enlighten & help them to imagine the terrible error that they don’t know or hide by remaining in the circle of ignorance.

3️⃣ All that is said by this abhorrent atheist is hatred & he falsely claims to have common sense & fair historical view, while in fact he knows the amazing truth of #Islam & the heinous truth of #Atheism.

I'll make this one quick because you might turn off you TV/Computer/Phone before I even get to the end of the thread. Of course the content of television programming has an effect on the way people think, but what about the signals.
How ironic that the old cliche adage so many mothers said to their children, "Don't sit too close to the TV" actually has quite a bit of merit in light of these patents and the claims they make about how television broadcasts signals effect your brain. I know my mom had no idea.
So, not only do you have to worry about how the content of what you are watching will effect your thoughts, you actually have to consider there may be some less obvious physical manipulation in the actual signals coming from the tube.…
