Absurdities - in Religion, Reason and Humanity

I am an atheist - so, I may be amused, disturbed, distressed even, by some elements of religion. Is it not absurd that some of those who believe in a loving God should yet seek to injure, even kill, those who believe in 'the wrong God' or no gods at all?

I am also aware, though, of the absurdities of our lives, even if non-believers. After all, incongruously, I enjoy religious choral music in chapel. After all, we all make use of words such as 'I' and 'self', yet do we have any clear concept of what a self is?

For more such thoughts, go to a short article on these absurdities: absurdities
