Theism-atheism is the subject of long debate on many blogs. Naturally, many groups surface there. Three major groups are – (1) Believer, (2) Atheists and (3) neither this side nor that side. People are afraid of being branded an atheist. It can appropriately be called ‘religious timidity’.
There is no conclusion on this subject. Comments are pouring in given today. There are more than five hundred comments which is a record in the history of Hindi blogging.
I’ve become an atheist, but atheism in itself is a belief.
In India, belief has disseminated lot of unscientific knowledge. This has harmed this country greatly. Thinking of much larger human groups has lost the edge in the network of theism and religiosity. Science has been pushed to the second place. Ancient knowledge (tribal stories) has been propagated as science.
Agnostic has his own belief. Theist believes in a power which is different from him. An atheist believes in himself. He has faith in available science. The base element is faith. It is beneficial.
Faith gives confidence when we lose hope. It is a psychological fact. Faith increases person’s capacity to recover. It improves the process of healing. Accordingly, it increases the chances of his life. This faith is the proven process. It does not make a difference to belief whether person is a believer or an atheist. It goes on working like a flame.
डॉ दिव्या के ब्लॉग पर नास्तिकता–आस्तिकता के विषय पर लंबी बहस छिड़ गई. टिप्पणी दर टिप्पणी आई. स्वाभाविक कई समूह बन गए. तीन प्रमुख रहे– 1. आस्तिक, 2. नास्तिक और 3. कुछ इधर के कुछ उधर के या न इधर के न उधर के. एक बात फिर स्पष्ट हुई कि लोग नास्तिक होते हैं लेकिन स्वयं पर इसका ठप्पा लगने से डरते हैं. इसे भीरूता कहना अधिक उपयुक्त होगा.
