Today provided the most wonderful encounters with birds, ducks and especially ducklings ...

Once I became accustomed to appreciating beautiful things each and every day I marvelled at the mystery of humankind filling their souls, minds, thoughts and words with negativity of all sorts.  Life is too short to waste it away in conflict & competition with anyone else and/or everyone else.  

Try peace & peacefulness as a full-time, life-consuming pursuit.  

Yesterday I mentioned that I haven't ever found a happy atheist in decades of looking.  In response to this comment there were a number of evidently extremely unhappy atheists insisting that they are happy, evidently the sort of happiness which masks itself with a perpetual frown.

Some of the atheists thought it wise to respond by criticizing and insulting Christianity.  While I could become offended by such statements there is nothing terrible which an atheist could say about either the Bible or Christianity which I haven't already said to fundamentalists hundreds of times and will probably say again should the situation arise.  

I accept and reject all religions.  I love the world's religions.  I love all the Scriptures.  I accept, tolerate and am merciful to all ... including the atheists.  

Has anyone ever noticed how emotional and defensive atheists become when they are criticized?  It is quite astonishing that people who spend so much time criticizing everyone else might react in that way to criticism.  

Don't cry when I criticize atheism's blind faith, infinite regress and willingness to form an alliance with fundamentalist Christians as it seeks to engage in a crusade against Islam.  Criticism of this sort is actually beneficial to atheism.

Did anyone watch Sam Harris on Bill Maher last week?

At approximately 1:10 into that clip Sam Harris says:

"Atheism has no content ... "

In other words: Atheism is an intellectual vacuum.  Atheism is an empty vesserl.  To argue with an atheist is to engage in futile game of shadowboxing.

Now here is a trivial question for the atheists:

What do Michael Savage, Sam Harris and Ann Coulter have in common?

You will find the answer right here:

It is really vile, sickening stuff.  Sam Harris engages in prejudice-pandering, fearmongering and warmongering against the Muslims.  He is not alone is spreading irrational fear and hatred on behalf of justifying warfare and violence against the Muslims.  

Atheism can align itself with fundamentalist Christianity against Islam because atheism lacks content and morality. There are no moral principles of atheism which forbids prejudice, bigotry, hatred, violence and warfare.

Atheism has a lot to answer for its leadership between 2003 - 2008.  Atheism failed.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
