A Series of Disjointed Comments on Idealism

There was no Adam and there was no Eve. You’re allowed to do whatever you want. There is no Original Sin.

All things are lawful for me, but all things do not edify.

Nothing is true, everything is permitted.

The reality is that people struggle to accept that the universe doesn’t give a shit about them.

As David Stove points out, in his “Idealism: A Victorian Horror Story”, to even think in terms of the “indifference” of the universe is to give the universe something that isn’t there.

Why battle with atheists who are really arguing for a s-pecial place in outer space’s non selection of them or anyone else?

The day is not even indifferent. The day has no feelings. The day is the day just as the night is the night.

The thing about nihilism is, why would you even argue for it?

The true atheist doesn’t reject God, for there is nothing to reject.

The true atheist is indifferent, just as the universe is not indifferent, but feelingless.

The true atheist doesn’t emote about a for or against with regard the existence of aliens or gods, he sticks to facts. Sceptical, as Vox would define the term.

The world is not indifferent. The world has no feeling. It’s not anthropomorphic. It is.

Yet, we are born with feelings. And those who don’t share them we call sociopaths.

The best thought is, what if there isn’t a God?

What if there wasn’t any morality, but everyone else was acting like there was?

Or, forgetting the Jews for a minute, imagine a world where there was no Divine mandate and everyone did what they did, just for the hell of it. Everyone agreed there was nothing permitting them or not permitting them to do whatever.

Why do atheists never think of that world? Maybe they have. But I’m pretty sure Dawkins et al is relying on me not thinking about it because the first thing that comes to my mind is killing everyone I hate. And, I gotta tell ya, there’s a hell of a lot of people I hate and most of them I haven’t even met.

And, you know what? What is it about me that the first thing I think of in a world without God is who I could kill?

It occurs to me there might be other options, now I think about it.

In relation.

    This is not a post about Breaking Bad, or anything to do with it, btw. Or is it?

    Never thought I’d see you pushing Vox Day.

    The fact of the matter is that you become an atheist by rationalization, but it takes a hell of a lot more than that to stay one. It requires active, hateful rejection of God, because that is the only motivation they have, the only way they can ignore the screaming in their mind that something inside them has gone horribly wrong.

    That’s why they rail so fiercely.

      Vox is a smart man, though a Christian Zionist.

      The thing about atheists is that they are not indifferent but assert that this non-created world has a special place for them. Atheists, on the whole, are emotional about the subject which is contrary to what an atheist should be.

      I’ll see if I can get Reg to post up some thoughts from David Stove about idealism.

      How are you Simon? Good to see you again.
