Rational Atheism

Sharing Reasonable Secular Ideas

71 notes

Religion, with it’s various and abundant supernatural claims of divinity, rests upon the willingness of adherents to believe extraordinary claims without the allowance of critical evaluation. Science cannot do this. It would be like a chemist telling someone to drink a compound without testing it or offering proof that it is safe. Religion says to drink the stuff down, blindly trusting that it is safe. Sadly, it is not.
