I want you, The Atheist, to understand something I thought of which may make you understand what is going on in the religious mind.
It has to do with that line, Peter (Petrus, the Rock) is solid, and I will build my church upon him… or something along those lines.
This is why people who embrace religion, despite using Mobile Phones, Computers, Wi-Fi, Digital Televisions and more, shun Science.
Science bends, it moves, it morphs and changes.
The religious mind cannot handle an alteration of collected facts, it cannot adapt to new evidence.
The Bible presents them with a simplistic rock to stand on, which never changes, even though they clearly do.
Homosexuality is clearly wrong according to the religious mind, but upholding the second amendment when the Bible clearly says “Thou shalt not kill” without any trace of a clause, Show me where it says “But it’s alright, if you’re American”.
These people want things fixed in place, they don’t like change, even though their Grandparents lived lives different from themselves, but they have changed, and they fear even more change, despite the fact that change will indeed happen in their lives whether they like it, or not.
The irony is that this rock they cling to, is built upon fantasy, making their ground as shaky as ours.
