You ever asked a religious question and had somebody say:
Find yourself a good bible study and your questions will be answered.
Now I need to know, What’s a ‘good bible study’?
Let me guess…
…whatever bible study answers my question!
Ever asked somebody about their personal religious views and had them say:
My pastor can tell you better than I can!
Your pastor can explain what you believe better than you…
…how is that even possible?
I submit that if you can’t explain your beliefs…
…they are not your beliefs.
What you have are fuzzy, incoherent concepts…not beliefs.
You have ‘belief bits’.
Disconnected pieces of philosophical flotsam sloshing around in your skull.
Belief bits are made of sermon snippets, Bible verses, and a potpourri of religious lingo.
It’s a spiritual soup.
But when I ask about the specific ingredients; the answer is:
Indeed. So complicated that even YOU don’t understand it.
For the heathen, ‘belief bits’ are the only thing on the menu.
Wikipedia, web pages, memes, and YouTube videos jumbled into a doctrine of white noise.
Atheism is a hodge-podge of abstract concepts that atheists struggle to even describe.
To be clear…
You’re sending me off to research YOUR belief.
There is a word for this: “Idiotic”.
Whether you believe in God or not…you should be able to say it.
And you should be able to tell me why.
And I shouldn’t have to ‘Google it’.
