The “Saving” Illusion


Date: December 23, 2007

…[Video Removed by User]…

If I recall correctly, this was a video decrying the point that so many young people were taking “The Blasphemy Challenge”…They were trying to argue “what a tragedy it was” that atheists were, allegedly, leading the young away from christianity…and preventing them from “being saved”.

…but when the “saving” is all an illusion, it is no advantage at all, and can become a very real and senseless burden to bare…and a liability.

The likely reason why so many teens are doing the blasphemy challenge, as opposed to older people, is that teens have a surplus of time on their hands, to burn up on the internet…and they are feeling froggy. Older atheists commonly don’t need that kind of expression anymore, as they became comfortable and content long ago. We move out of that phase, a lot of us. You come to understand, you don’t need to prove anything to anyone.
