"Men will never be free until the last king is strangled
with the entrails of the last priest." - Denis Diderot
I did not write the following but I could have. I found this
on reddit.com, penned by a user named "Shebangdotat". Enjoy.
a year ago or so I discovered creationisn. At first I was stunned.
How could anyone honestly believe that? I became curious and
I started researching. I watched hundreds of YouTube videos,
I read Dawkins, downloaded talks by Sam Harris, followed discussions
on various sites, subscribed to the atheism reddit.
Today it all came together. It just clicked.
And therefore a big thank you to you.
You introduced me to Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, Cristopher
Hitchens and other intelligent and - dare I say - wise authors.
You renewed my interest in science.
You showed me how ridiculous and even dangerous religion is,
and I have learned a lot about how bad fundamentalist religion
Because of you I now see how wonderful evolution is.
Because of you I have learned so much about reasoning and debating.
I wouldn't have read Dawkins, were it not for you. I wouldn't
have Einstein and Hawkins on my reading list, had you not renewed
my childhood fascition for science. I wouldn't have found all
those wonderful videos about evolution, biology or astrophysics
that have expanded my common knowledge.
I wouldn't know what Occam's Razor was and how awful the Bible
or the Quran really is. Because of you I found the evidence
and the reasons I needed to fully convince me.
You have killed every last trace of suspicion in me, you have
freed my mind completely from any trace of superstition. I
now know that there is nothing supernatural. I mean, I really
know. Not only rationally, but I now understand it. You have
freed my mind from any last trace of catholicism.
You made a firm atheist out of me.
And therefore I thank you.
Total cheap shot but totally hilarious.
