Summary:

There has been no “greening of Christianity” among people in the pews, despite efforts by some religious leaders to emphasize environmental stewardship, according to new research.

If its correct, then its terrible sad news. How could people of God, be becoming less concerned?

Seems unbelievable (because i seriously don’t like to believe it’s true )

I still see certain theist who seem to remain quite content with equating atheist with anthropocentric ideals.If it were correct, then surely countries with theist majority, might also be expected, to be world leaders, with regard of environmentalism?

Previously, i used to let these theist get to me, a little too much.Where as these days, now i feel more sad for them.They faithfully believe they are doing good for good of this world?.In much the same way like what some brethren will also do as well too (even when covering up sex abuses,through use of hush-money contracts,so as to help silence witness).And anyway, its been a traditional put down toward non believers for generations now.Which of course,perhaps helps explain, why in places like America,they haven’t even had one president elected, as yet, who was an atheist.And even worse, they still haven’t ever elected any woman,as yet, for president either.

They lag miles behind some other parts of the world, in all these regard.Which is sad to see?.When, by now (2018), we really need to be seeing this country as being far more like world leaders.

Right?

However, it is what it is. And far better, that we would still try and work in with the more morally minded theist.They do exist.No doubt about that.Although sadly it seems like their voices are not really getting through enough.As yet. As the sound of their symphony, is still not loudly clear,as yet

I can say, that i sincerely hope, that perhaps this survey might be incorrect.

I hope so.Because hope is something that still remain.I hope so for all the good American people, who are suffering through the hell fire that is presently consuming children,women,men and grandparents. Material property can be replaced,the houses can be rebuilt.There’s always plenty of new cars and trucks and bikes and so on, readily available for purchase.

But loss of human lives ?. No amount of money , in the whole wide world,can ever help bring any of those lives,back again,of what have been lost.

Many theist content themselves with soothing feelings in regard to this terrible loss, by faith in an eternity. I fear that this might in fact be the hidden cost of the Pascal wager?.

And yet Pascal deemed his wager, to be like, there’s absolutely nothing to worry or care about losing?

We should all hope perhaps he might be right?.But if wrong.Then oh what a terribly high cost.

Theist and atheist both hold onto a sense of hope.

  1. Atheist hold hope that perhaps more people might soon-awaken and become more mind fully aware, in regard to promptly addressing important issues, that exist in the present moment,right now, here on earth
  2. Theist hold hope that perhaps their might be an eternity

 

If theist are wrong.Then theist and atheist, alike, will have both lost this hope

Meanwhile a hell on earth will also have already been served on  everyone. Even including animals,birds,insects,fish, plants and trees ( the real victim)

We could argue all day, and both believer and non believer could choose to carry on the hate.

Surely these other issues are most important right now ?

 

About ExEB

I'm a agnostic/atheist . Interested in learning more about science. I also am an "ex-member" of a group most publicly known within modern times, as the Exclusive Brethren. Whom are an off-shoot of the original Plymouth Brethren group. I'd say it likely my personality could possibly be described as quirky.You know ,as in being , unconventional , unorthodox , unusual, off-centre, strange, bizarre, weird, peculiar, odd, freakish, outlandish, offbeat, out of the ordinary, bohemian, alternative, zany I'm sure iv'e been classed as "crazy" . Many times But then, being born into a group like the exclusive brethren. Doesn't lend itself ? to tend to produce things considered as being "very normal" .Does it I escaped the Exclusive Brethren cult as a 15 year old teenager. Even since that time iv'e been trying to adjust to living life outside the cult. With much of my life being lived within the genre of "wild colonial boy" style. In the general sense of a church-rebel picking and choosing from role models who appeared within-life along the way. But as the exclusive brethren cult had traditionally maintained a general church-rule , of need to shun and totally excommunicate any ex member of their group.Treating such people as if they were dead. Thus this situation developed more to do with my need of following traditionally enforced church-rule , as apposed to it being so much about "life-choices". Certain emotional experiences, and parts of life in general, have led to me adopting a sense of low self esteem. Which is a situation i still deal with from time to time. Through my ongoing interest in science. I find i am able to gather more information to help me better understand my situation. Much about life for me, has often seemed like a massive puzzle.With many missing pieces.
