I fear NK may have missed my point or points: 1. there are spiritual forces associated with Xtianity that ‘reckon poverty’….2.spiritual authority is mostly illusory: I called ‘jesus’ bluff’, so to speak, respectfully, and was sent away from xtianity to something more appropriate… xtianity is crumbling and the ‘spirit guides’ behind it know this all to well…

I fear that xtianity is becoming an albatross around the necks of the spiritual forces that guided it for so long. The New atheism is a useful demotion wreckerball, one that will dissolve after doing its job due to general inanity of most forms of atheism…

I think xtians should thus be a bit worried about movements like the new atheism (the same old recycled ‘secular humanism’ of the Marx generation): the god theology of Xtians is their creation, not that of the spiritual domain.

Traditional xtians make ‘god’ the key proposition of religious belief: but the ‘god’ concept is the most vulnerable point (in the minds of believers).

    No, this is something I agree with you about. New Atheism/secular humanism may sweep away some infantile/ludicrous religious beliefs, but it will lose the main argument.

    …but my main point was that I don’t want to have to f*cking work.

    I am a long standing member of the IWW, I won’t work, as you appear to be…
    The New Atheism has an easy first few rounds but in the end it is a creature of scientism and darwinism and will find its ‘lift’ factor stalling…

    I am unfair to myself. The problem is that for so many no serious employment is possible. I have always been willing to work if there was a reasonable form of it. But I discovered long ago what many are now discovering, work in the sense of something on which to base a good life is rapidly disappearing.
