There are those who follow an ancient book that describes the moon as one of the two great lights of the sky, created by God (Oh, and he made some stars too by the way). To call the moon a light-emitting object (which is the actual translation in the bible; not a description of a surface reflecting sunlight) is to contradict modern science. It is obvious when reading biblical texts critically that they were written in the narrow perspectives of ignorant desert nomads. And there’s nothing wrong with that — we have tons of literature from people who were smart in their day, but would be ignorant by today’s standards. The problem is when modern people, so brainwashed by religion, justify their beliefs by discounting modern science.
Which is why I’m here. My mission is to raise awareness about the ignorance of religion and the mind-games it can play, especially as it relates to American society.
