Passing Responsibility Off
To A Hypothetical Deity
I appreciate you greatly. I am as certain as a person can be that passing responsibility off to a hypothetical deity is a root source of much misery and of many major social, political and personal blunders.
And the assumption that the real effective agent is not humanity but a God interferes with the correction of errors once they are recognized.
Hope lies in simple, honest atheism on a worldwide scope.
Thank you for directing your resources and life energy as you have.
