THROWING THE BUDDHA OUT WITH THE BATHWATER, OR WHAT’S A MEHTA FOR?
[On the prospect of ditching religion]
Not so fast…there’s the slate of holidays and a ready excuse to get away from work? :-$ :-*
Special food? Watching sports figures making fools of themselves? Trouncing some b’LIEvers in a metaphysical argument? Asking STATE&religion fanatics, “What the Hell WOULD Jesus do?” Something to be agnostic about? A book of useful fairytale fiction to quote authoritatively to stymie those who can’t come up with anything original? (And it literally mentions only one species of human when we’ve discovered about halfdozen, so far?) O:-) 😉
And it is a countervailing force to balance the excess of secular overreach, kinda like the “4thEstate”? :-$
Even “SecularHumanists” will allow that the GoldenRule’s core is empathy beyond which all else is mere theology? 🙂
So let’s chill till, like with OBAMACARE, we can warranty a superior replacement? :-*
