Top Ten Signs You’re a Religious zealots

December 28, 2009 Leave a comment

10 – You vigorously deny the existence of thousands of gods claimed by other religions, but feel outraged when someone denies the existence of your god.

9 – You feel insulted and “dehumanized” when scientists say that people evolved from lesser life forms, but you have no problem with the Biblical claim that we were created from dirt.

8 – You laugh at polytheists, but you have no problem believing in a Trinity god.

7 – Your face turns purple when you hear of the “atrocities” attributed to Allah, but you don’t even flinch when hearing about how God/Jehovah slaughtered all the babies of Egypt in “Exodus” and ordered the elimination of entire ethnic groups in “Joshua” — including women, children, and trees!

6 – You laugh at Hindu beliefs that deify humans, and Greek claims about gods sleeping with women, but you have no problem believing that the Holy Spirit impregnated Mary, who then gave birth to a man-god who got killed, came back to life and then ascended into the sky.

5 – You are willing to spend your life looking for little loop-holes in the scientifically established age of the Earth (4.55 billion years), but you find nothing wrong with believing dates recorded by pre-historic tribesmen sitting in their tents and guessing that the Earth is a couple of generations old.

4 – You believe that the entire population of this planet with the exception of those who share your beliefs — though excluding those in all rival sects — will spend Eternity in an infinite Hell of Suffering. And yet you consider your religion the most “tolerant” and “loving”.

3 – While modern science, history, geology, biology, and physics have failed to convince you otherwise, some idiot rolling around on the floor speaking in “tongues” may be all the evidence you need to prove Christianity.

2 – You define 0.01% as a “high success rate” when it comes to answered prayers. You consider that to be evidence that prayer works. And you think that the remaining 99.99% FAILURE was simply the will of God.

1 – You actually know a lot less than many Atheists and Agnostics do about the Bible, Christianity, and church history — but still call yourself a Christian.

Agama VS Sains di Dunia The Simpsons

December 14, 2009 Leave a comment

Jadi teringat kisah The Simpsons di anteve. I like Simpsons, karakter antihero yg unik dan satire banget, bener-bener bukan film kartun sembarangan. Episode kali ini yang akan saya bahas cukup menggelitik dan cukup menginspirasi tapi yang lebih penting, sangat relevan. Alur kisahnya mengingatkan akan debat panjang tak berkesudahan antara sains dan agama. Ketika sebuah fakta beredar di Springfield berupa sesuatu seperti kerangka manusia yang bersayap. Disini fakta adalah sesuatu yang bisa dijangkau oleh indera. Dari penemuan teresbut, perdebatan antara sains dan agama tak terelakkan, muncul dialog, ‘apakah fakta itu??’. Perdebatan semakin seru ketika disertai semangat fanatisme. Ada dialog yang menarik, ketika Lisa belum juga berhasil menjelaskan secara masuk akal, dibalik sikap skeptisnya. Para penduduk Springfield yang percaya bahwa sesuatu yang menyerupai fosil itu adalah malaikat, mereka mengatakan bahwa Read more…

Mengorbankan Keyakinan Untuk Kehidupan Yang Lebih Baik

December 8, 2009 20 comments

Kita masing-masing selama ini masih berpikiran sempit: hanya mematuhi ajaran kitab suci dan pemuka agama kita sendiri.  Tetapi ternyata di dunia ini ada banyak manusia lain dengan ajaran yang lain pula.  Ketika harus bergabung bersama dalam komunitas global alias globalisasi planet bumi, timbullah aneka ragam konflik.

Apa yang akan terjadi bila para scientist menemukan kehidupan di planet lain, dan kita terpaksa untuk bergabung kembali dalam komunitas universal alam semesta?  Timbul lagi aneka ragam konflik.

Doktrin dan akidah agama kita bisa kacau balau.

Banyak diantara kita yang tidak akan bisa lagi menjawab pertanyaan sederhana ini:

Apa itu AGAMA?  What is religion?

dan .. Apa manfaatnya untuk manusia?

Kita harus memperluas sudut pandang.  Paradigma sempit harus diperluas menjadi yang lebih universal.  Kita perlu paradigma baru yang global, bahkan universal.  Konsep mengenai Tuhan dan agama harus diperluas sehingga lebih luas dan bisa dipahami manusia modern.

Kita harus belajar untuk mendengar pendapat dari pengikut agama lain. Lakukan judgment secara seimbang dan faktual, bukan hanya opini atau tafsiran. Read more…
