People. Religion. Atheism. Meaning.

A people without religion will at the end find out that it has nothing to live for [T.S. Eliot, 1939]

No, people do not live for religion.

No, people do not need religion.

No, Christ did not talk about religion.

It is just that religion is a philosophical system of beliefs which entails all those things that we should care about. All those things that give meaning to our life. Atheist people today believe that we live because we… live. Meaningless tautologies guide their existence. But there is something higher inside us. There is something higher in our lives. There is something more in our dasein than just lifeless matter wandering around.

Stop believing in nothingness. Stop having pointless philosophical dogmas – like materialism – as your religion. Believe in yourself. Make this belief your religion. Not because you have to or because someone tells you so. But because you feel like it. Because something tells you this is right. Because you KNOW you are more than just some pounds of meat.

In an empty lifeless world, we are life.

In an empty dark cosmos, we are the light.

We may decide to glow bright, or fade away.

As simple as that.

Spiros Kakos is a thinker located in Greece. He has been Chief Editor of Harmonia Philosophica since its inception. In the past he has worked as a senior technical advisor for many years. In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He has also worked as a phD researcher in the Advanced Materials sector related to the PCB industry. He likes reading and writting, not only philosophy but also in general. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy. 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. 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... Credo quia absurdum!
