A day of freedom is worth more than a lifetime of slavery.
The above quotes are among my favourite. They truly defend the value of freedom and the idea that we should not surrender no matter how big or small.
Yes, I do many things that I have no choice but to do, such as paying taxes. But have you ever seen a ‘Tax-man worship centre’? Would you attend? I pay taxes and comply with authority but it stops there. I do not worship and tell others to worship.
Life is short enough. As soon as I leave the house on the morning I am vulnerable to the elements and unfortunatley, other people. I choose not to spend any of this time dedicated to praising a deity unless that deity is blatant. The fact that I have created this blog is not because I am ‘ignorant’ around religious claims or ‘arrogant’ towards the supposedly undeniable fact that God exists. It’s because the religous claims aren’t good enough. I don’t mind spending my precious and finite time blogging on behalf of nature because I know it cannot blog for itself. I am blogging in a world that is slowly turning it’s head to the actual truth and escaping the ‘convenient’ truth.
Surely this is something to take pride in blogging about.
