Atheistic France (again) as a proponent of Free Speech. Thank God!

Advertisements

France is once more in the front line of defending the right of Free Speech. French magazine Charlie Hebdo published satirical sketches of the prophet Mohamed, while at the same time the French administration has prohibited a protests against the recent US film which “insults” Muhammad [1].

Of course this had as a result the closing of French embassies in over 20 countries for the fear of retaliation.

Imagine a world where a simple cartoon could trigger deaths of people… Imagine a world where a movie could kill your loved ones or burn your house… Imagine a world… well, we don’t have to imagine that. We actually live it!

I am a religious person. But I say Thank God for France and its “atheistic obsession” with free speech!!!

Because religious people too can have humor and like free speech!

He also worked as a technical advisor and a researcher in the Advanced Materials sector for many years in the past. In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He is the creator of Huo Chess, one of the smallest micro-chess programs ever that is perfect for educational purposes. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy, as well as the philosophy of the irrational. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. Since our thought is dictated by our assumptions, the only way to free it and know cosmos as it is, is to think irrationally and destroy everything we have built. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans. We should stop thinking in order to think. Credo quia absurdum! View all posts by skakos
