I have been browsing blogs about Atheism these days. Few blogs I browsed recently are:
Oh my GAWD!! I see so many Hindu Atheists blogs and posts in which the authors just blame religion for everything. No religion stops you from thinking. In fact a religion as such never enforces all those rituals and customs; especially in Hindu religion. Hindu has infinite number of those customs and rituals. But how many people are following the customs and rituals these days? But they are still Hindus and would like to call themselves so..
Its the problem with the people who preach religion. Not the religion itself. It is those preachers who do not know the religion & its concepts completely. So, they stop you from questioning and thinking. If you do care, then go in search of the truth. Instead how can you just say religion is corrupt? Only the preachers are corrupt.
Many people follow things blindly without knowing the reasons. But that does not mean that there are no reasons. The whole problem is the reasons are lost. We do not know where to find them. If you trust people around – who’s aim is not to know truth but to gain power & control & satisfy their desires, they are going to misguide you. And their EGO is never going to let them say that they DONT KNOW the reasons. Instead they are going to blabber some nonsense or induce more FEAR to keep you shut. If you want to know truth, then search and find it. Instead you can’t say there is no TRUTH.
As I have written before, I can see that many of us are loosing respect for the religion. I want to blame only those people who abuse religion to satisfy their selfish ego. Whats wrong with religion? Tradition and customs are for disciplining men and Religion is for soul satisfaction which you cant achieve if you dont have discipline.
I see in all these blogs and posts the authors are really rational, critical and bold. I really enjoy reading their intellectual minds. But I wonder how they miss what I see. Its not religion which has to be blamed. Its the people who are abusing it in the name of preaching it.
Why are you guys writing like this? Don’t you see the difference? Or is this one of your marketing strategy? “Atheist” is your tag for attracting more visitors, huh?
