Sober without god. An atheist / agnostic / humanist thread. Please be respectful!

Just for me it’s hard enough to keep up with this forum and as a moderator here my time needs to be here. But of course make decisions that work best for you.

Yeah I just figured with discord you can divide the discussion into various different rooms for different sub topics plus with its voice feature you could hold virtual meets for the people commenting about those. Sure if have to figure out the moderation thing but I’m sure i could figure it out

Not sure how accurate it can be for such a short graphic but looks close ish

It’s not a straight line like that. It’s more a many branched tree with many dead ends. But still a nice illustration. Also I wonder if there will be much evolution coming from and after homo sapiens or that we’ll turn out to be another one of these dead ends ourselves.

I always wondered whether it should be called naturalism?

Naturalism sounds nice. It does have another meaning already though. Like globalism. Or universalism. Careism? Loveism? We’reinthistogetherism?

I do like the term humanism, because it implies humans are actually capable of being nice to each other (and the rest of the world). As the same implication lies in the word humane. And also that we have to know that our humanity (there it is again) lies within ourselves, that it is innate and in our nature. Which I do believe it is.

It’s just that today’s societies are way too complicated and over our heads, and made us lose contact with the earth, with nature, with each other, with ourselves. And it’s up to us to reconnect to those things or we’re doomed. Which we might be anyway but for my own peace of mind and soul I’ll try and work on making those connections. Of which being sober and clean is part also. A big part for all of us here.

@Rockstar24777 this pic just made me and my partner laugh out loud, lying in bed! It is also the reason I’ve posted for the first time on this thread.
