Philosophy has taught us to worship that which is divine, to love that which is human; she has told us that with the gods lies dominion, and among men, fellowship. I wonder how accurate this is to the original though:“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it.Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many.There is no boat in Hades, no ferryman Charon, No caretaker Aiakos, no dog Cerberus.All we who are dead below Have become bones and ashes, but nothing else.
From her side religion never departs, nor duty, nor justice, nor any of the whole company of virtues which cling together in close-united fellowship.
Obviously I am painting religious people with a very broad brush, but it seems to me that most of them choose a particular god because it was the one their parents and family taught them was real, or perhaps because it better reflects the world as they want it to be (in the case of conversions).
Those are *not* the reasons I use to reject those gods.
But there are many I disagree with, for example “All thinking men are atheists” (Ernest Hemmingway).
Or consider this Julian Baggini quote: “Goblins, hobbits… God is just one of the things that atheists don’t believe in, it just happens to be the thing that, for historical reasons, gave them their name.” Actually, no.
