Atheism Means Moral Freedom

God is in your mind. I am sure of this.

Whenever I write "God" I use a capital G since I respect your opinion and I would expect you to return that favor. Thank you.

Nothing exists but matter. Humankind is on its own. You are the way you are today not because you prayed or you didn't. But because of your actions and thoughts till now. Your bliss is within yourself. You have to search for happiness within yourself first and try to make earth a good place to live.

There is nothing other than the physical nature that you see. There are no supreme forces or unknown entities. Yes, science hasn't yet explained everything around you, but that day is not far.

Instead of building a church, mosque or a temple why don’t you go and build a hospital. Your work is required here and now.

God taught man neither the sciences nor the arts. Then what did God teach you? Morality? Well, take my word for it, for a person to be ethical he needs no faith in unscientific beliefs.

God created Man?
Man created God?
The prime difference between Man and animals, as we all know the former "Thinks". Through experience man found that he is happier when his mind is clear, when his thought process is pure, when he thinks of good things (the morality that I discussed comes here). So to be happy he has to control his mind. Controlling the mind is a very difficult exercise. It needs a lot of training. Thus man invented prayer, a set of requests to a particular person named God.
Thus man created God. Proved.

Then he went on thinking about his God. He started writing books, epics. He built large structures. If only all that time, energy and resources were put aside for human welfare, hmmm, I can’t imagine how much better place this world could have been.

There so much destruction in this world just because of religion. All the communal riots going on around the world wouldn't have been there if there had been no God and His other believes.
How nice a place this world would have been.....

God is in your mind. I am sure of this.

Beauty of Symmetry

Beauty is symmetry and exactness. Symmetry has been inherently attractive to the human eye. Moreover,in the human body, symmetry is probably a good indicator of general health and strength.

To gauge how beautiful and appealing a work of art is we can use two parameters - complexity and order (or symmetry). If something is complex, it will be more appealing if it is less symmetrical. Else, if something is highly-symmetrical, it is better if it is less complex.

Symmetry has several variants, but the basic symmetrical operations are Translation, Rotation, and Reflection.

However, I think beauty is highly subjective. Whatever triggers your aesthetic sense should be defined as beauty.

Money ?

I always wonder how a world wothout money would be like. Am I being communist ? No! This is just another viewpoint. But then how will we do business would be a probable question. But then in this hypothetical world there is no business at all. You work somewhere and you get your food. The whole society lives together. Wow, it feels good at times..
But somebody has to manage all these processes. Government ?

I think I got the answers for all the above questions I asked myself

"So you think that money is the root of all evil? … Have you ever asked what is the root of money? Money is a tool of exchange, which can't exist unless there are goods produced and men able to produce them. Money is the material shape of the principle that men who wish to deal with one another must deal by trade and give value for value. Money is not the tool of the moochers, who claim your product by tears, or of the looters, who take it from you by force. Money is made possible only by the men who produce. Is this what you consider evil?

When you accept money in payment for your effort, you do so only on the conviction that you will exchange it for the product of the effort of others. It is not the moochers or the looters who give value to money. Not an ocean of tears nor all the guns in the world can transform those pieces of paper in your wallet into the bread you will need to survive tomorrow. Those pieces of paper, which should have been gold, are a token of honor—your claim upon the energy of the men who produce. Your wallet is your statement of hope that somewhere in the world around you there are men who will not default on that moral principle which is the root of money. Is this what you consider evil?

Have you ever looked for the root of production? Take a look at an electric generator and dare tell yourself that it was created by the muscular effort of unthinking brutes. Try to grow a seed of wheat without the knowledge left to you by men who had to discover it for the first time. Try to obtain your food by means of nothing but physical motions—and you'll learn that man's mind is the root of all the goods produced and of all the wealth that has ever existed on earth.

But you say that money is made by the strong at the expense of the weak? What strength do you mean? It is not the strength of guns or muscles. Wealth is the product of man's capacity to think. Then is money made by the man who invents a motor at the expense of those who did not invent it? Is money made by the intelligent at the expense of the fools? By the able at the expense of the incompetent? By the ambitious at the expense of the lazy? Money is made—before it can be looted or mooched—made by the effort of every honest man, each to the extent of his ability. An honest man is one who knows that he can't consume more than he has produced."
