“Sometimes the role of the intelligent man is simply to point out the obvious”
…. George Orwell ….
“Religion is the ultimate slavery: it is the slavery of the mind.” -Paula Kirby
The above is a quote from from an atheist and it is truly amazing how stupid some of these bird – brain people can be .
The author struts arrogantly while all the time failing to realise that in a naturalistic paradigm neither she nor any other atheist or religious person could truly be said to have a mind which could be enslaved.
Indeed her sense of consciousness , like that of a religious person, would be merely an epiphenomenon of the physical processes in her brain.
Neither she nor anyone else has control over these processes. Those processes, her sense of consciousness and her thoughts are fully determined solely by the laws of physics and the matter involved.
Sorry to wake you up of your foolish way of thinking Paula but in your naturalistic paradigm no one , including you , can have a mind which could be enslaved. You and all humans, religious or atheists , will simply be fully determined automatons with as much free will and free thought as a fly.
