I was a religious nut for over 60 years. I was one of those hell fire and brimstone preachers you would avoid on the street. I was 100% convinced the Bible was true, every word of it. I wa, and discovered the first 5 books 100% convinced of hell.
All of that started to crumble when i researched the Dead Sea Scrolls in Hebrew. I found out that it was clearly not written by Moses, but by 4 different writers. They all thought only their stream was right, and everyone else was wrong.
That my friends is how my atheism started. Somebody on Facebook also slammed me for how stupid i could be to believe the Bible. That challenged me to dig even further. I started listening to Atheist speakers, and they made perfect sense. I started finding all the massive contradictions in the Bible, and that cemented my atheism.
My love of Nature also opened my eyes. I thought about trees. Trees do not argue with you, criticize you, judge you,condemn you, or act arrogantly toward you. This insight further grounded my atheism.
My anarchism was brought on by my desire to see the World Live as One. Why can we not live as one, because of scummy religion. I thought of my hippie days and Joni Mitchell’s song stating they took paradise and put up a parking lot. My love of Science brought the Truth that everything in The universe is connected, with the exception of Humans. Fuck government! The two Latin words for government means mind control
My path to Veganism was gradual. I was a Vegetarian for quite a while. Gary Yourofsky’s video opened my eyes big time to Veganism: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQUJRz8Eb2o. I seen how shitty it was to kill an innocent animal for your taste buds. Did the research on that, and found the scientific evidence backing up veganism.
I have been radical all my life. My Radical love caused me to see so much that others overlooked. An All Loving All Powerful god is going to let children in cancer hospitals to be in horrendous pain, and does nothing. :Poor people drowning in their suffering, and he does nothing. the ultra Rich screwing the Middle Class and poor, and yet they willingly get on the hamster wheel every week, and do not realize that they are being screwed by the Fat Cats.
Fuck God, Fuck government, and Fuck Meat Eaters!
Radical Ron strikes again. Wake up!
