You believe in a book which has talking animals, wizards, witches, demons, sticks turning into snakes, food falling from the sky, people walking on water, and all sorts of magical, absurd, and primitive stories; and you say that I am the one who is mentally ill?
Learn To Think Critically, not only about religion and gods, but about everything.
We live in a world full of magic, pseudoscience, and all kinds of harmful ways of thinking. Rid of these things, educate yourself — it is liberating.
♣ I think…
For the whole of your life you will be your own closest companion. You will be the one who really understands what it is like. So, be especially kind and loving and appreciative of your own best friend — yourself.
♣ I am…
I am a secular humanist. I rely on reason to understand the world, and compassion guides my effort to apply my knowledge ethically. I behave decently to everyone without any expectation of rewards or punishment after I'm dead.
I am Monica Salcedo, known for being a fiercely outspoken atheist, on this site, and on Twitter and Google Plus. I am a humanist, a freethinker, a rationalist, and an egalitarian. I am engaged to Joshua McGee, (@mcgeesorg). I also occasionally write over at gawd.me.
