Imagine that,

Imagine people living entire lives completely unconcerned with what an invisible Sky-daddy wants. Or what may happen if He doesn't get what He wants.

Imagine people thinking about what a fair, just and righteous society might look like independent of what Sky-daddy might think.

Imagine people dedicating their lives to creating that society through hard work because Sky daddy isn't there to do it for us.

Imagine judging people by how they treat other people and how they support a just society instead of how well they entertain an imaginary Sky-daddy.

Imagine people doing the right thing simply because it is the right thing.

Imagine living this life and not assuming there is any payoff or punishment in any afterlife.

Religion mixed with hate. A deadly combination and we see it everyday. They must be two sides to the same coin.

I saw a meme that would have been a perfect comment here. Apparently, I didn't save it and I can't remember exactly what it said. Getting old is no fun. (But it's better than the alternative.)

My husband said he wants Imagine played at his funeral. Seeing that we're Buddhist, that would be a little weird... but maybe.

Imagine people treating each decently because we are all human beings instead of forming tribes based around their preferred Sky Daddy. Wouldn't that be something??

It would be a much better world. Certainly one with a lot less terrorism. Maybe we'll get there someday.

Art, I wouldn't mind some sky daddy (or mommy) near so much as some here & now 'guru' that people follow mindlessly

The problem isn't so much the sky daddy (who is imaginary), it's the people who believe in the sky daddy and use it to frame their own prejudices as enforceable moral absolutes.
