A Brief History of Disbelief (video)

Post28 Jan 2012

A documentary called "A Brief History of Disbelief" in 6 parts. Be part of a proud and ancient tradition! Probably it should read, "A Brief History of Disbelief in the West" as the East has its own schools.

Two quotes shine a light back at the sweet rulers of the BKWSU ...

Seneca wrote:Religion is regarded by the common people as true,
by the wise as false,
and by rulers as useful.
Aristotle wrote:A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious. On the other hand, they do less easily move against him, believing that he has the gods on his side.

And, of God ...
Epicurus wrote:Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing?
Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing?
Then why call him God?
