But you need someone to guide you, don't you? Now, you're going to answer me with: "No, I have myself, I have a brain. I use my brain to make decisions," okay, if that's so, then you don't need anyone to teach you anything, right?You're not "free thinkers" if you let let a book written by other men and a so-called god (a white male) dictate how you should live your life and what is good or bad. If you need to rely on a male god to tell you what to think you're not a free-thinker, you're a follower. And if your only reason for doing good in this life is because you fear retribution or punishment in the after-life, you're not really a good person, you're just a sheeple. At least, that's my opinion. It's also interesting that god is male considering it's women who have the ability to give life. Men are generally the ones who take life (murders, wars). It's interesting because I live in a country that calls itself "secular" and prohibits religious signs in public but like most countries in the west it's pretty entranched in christian values., but it's hidden in plain sight. It's funny because the fact that god is male and white, gives men and white people almost a god-like statues in western society. That's why white colons make it a point to export christianity in every country that they deem "uncivilized". The same paternalistic mindset is why we had historic events like genocides of the native americans, slavery. My philosophy teacher used to say that the bible was a great book, lol of course he was a white man.
Okay, how do you think then? Since you claim to be a free-thinker, you think you belong to yourself only, but you don't, mate. You have the will, the tools to think freely, you have all the rights to do so, but you're mistaken if you believe that you belong to no one.
Atheists used to think like this during the presence of every prophet there was. "If God's real he wouldn't allow this, do that. I'll worship God if he'll show himself" etc., etc., same conversation every year.
