"Atheism and Agnosticism are actually religions..." 'James "Kimo" Rosen'




Radha Dasi with her beloved sister in G-d chant Hare Krishna
 bringing good vibrations to Kapa'a town on a recent Saturday. 

Check out my Youtube I filmed of Radha Dasi;

This blog also appeared in the 05-17-13  edition of the  Kaua'i Garden Island news, "Atheism and Agnosticism are actually religions."

One of the many definitions of religion is a system of faith and a common bond of worship.

Atheism and Agnosticism  are actually religions in their own realm since one of the many definitions of religion is a system of faith.

An atheist is actually practicing a system of faith and common bondage with others, that faith being, not believing in a God.

This is similar to a Christian saying he or she is a non-denominational Christian, and when visiting other cities they will usually seek a church calling itself non-denominational which is in essence a denomination.

May God and Darwin and anybody else anyone believes in,  bless us!

via Facebook," You contradict yourself in your first statement: "An atheist is actually practicing a system of faith and common bondage with others, that faith being, not believing in a God." Faith is "not believing?" Ridiculous. Let me ask you this, do you believe in the god Thor? If not, are you practicing a religion of not believing in Thor?"

KimoRosen said...

Yes, the faith of not believing that many share, thus creating a common bond...

Chuck Lasker said...

via facebook,"With thousands of gods, I contend that you are an atheist, James. I just believe in one less god than you do."

Chuck Lasker said...

Via facebook,"The faith of not believing. How you can type that and not see how silly it is makes me laugh."

Chuck Lasker said...

You must have billions of faiths of not believing, so you must have billions of religions. Unicorns, moon people, Thor, all of these gods http://www.rationalresponders.com/a_big_list_of_gods_but_nowhere_near_all_of_them .....

A big list of Gods (but nowhere near all of them) | The Rational Response Squad
Via facebook,"www.rationalresponders.com
Why don't you believe in any of the gods below? Do you know why atheists don't believe in your god? Atheists don't believe in any of these gods, you don't believe in almost all of them. We are atheists towards a great many gods together. Hopefully this list of gods that have all been believed in..."

Chuck Lasker said...

With thousands of gods, I contend that you are an atheist, James. I just believe in one less god than you do.

KimoRosen said...

Yes, you must think outside the box, the faith of not believing, because atheists believe in not believing a pretty basic concept... therefore not believing is a common bond and faith of many.

Chuck Lasker said...

"outside the box" in this case is an oxymoronic nonreality.

KimoRosen said...

OK, whatever you say, I can see you are not going to see my analogy...

I don't have "faith" there is no god. It's not something I believe, it's something I do NOT believe. Not believing something is not a faith. Common bond does not mean faith or religion. KKK members have a common bond, so is racism a religion and a faith? NASCAR fans have a common bond, is that a religion? You're not talking about an analogy, you're saying atheism is a religion.

KimoRosen said...

Yes! Yes! Yes! Think outside the box...

Chuck Lasker said...

Atheists have no structure, no system of beliefs, no rules, no book, no commonality except not believing in something many others believe in. We are not taught to be atheist, we don't meet as atheists, we don't have buildings or employees or teachers or anything that fits within a religion or faith. Nothing at all. But if you are saying atheism is a religion like NASCAR is a religion, then whatever....

Chuck Lasker said...

And we are all born atheists. Babies are atheist. Religion and faith are learned, taught, man-made.

KimoRosen said...

Look, I am obviously not going to convince you and don't care to, it's only my opinion You are welcome to your opinion. Kasera Sera...

Chuck Lasker said...

In my opinion, you are a Hindu

Why do any normal intelligent person who knows what is right from wrong & don't hurt anyone physically needs to kow tow or pay money to any businesses call organized religions to get to heaven ? Organized religions caused sectarian wars for conversion & mind control for centuries & on going...a born again Christian started the Iraq war on a lie & still on going that the US will be paying with bodies,blood & taxes for years to come & their gods have no power to stop these senseless killings & wars !!!

KimoRosen said...

Amen & Hallelujah Pastor Unc!

Chester "Unc" Lau said...

Why are they not working & paying taxes like the rest of us ?

Chester "Unc" Lau said...

How come no one ever come back from heaven or hell & give us a idea on video or print on how good life is in either places

KimoRosen said...

Because they're are dead! ;D)

Chester "Unc" Lau said...

Chester "Unc" Lau said...

Atheism & Agnosticism are religions who don't believe in religions
