rationis supra religionem – evidentiam supra fidem
John Tremblay is the pen name of an average joe who finally emancipated himself from the idea of a celestial dictator and now enjoys the limitless extent of free thought and inquiry. Not content with freeing himself from the mind forged manacle of religion, credulity and wish thinking, he expresses concern for his fellow humans by seeking out intellectual debates with pious advocates of all faiths which prey upon the weak-minded, scientifically illiterate and the hopeless. Once a Christian apologist himself, John is well versed in dissecting the unsubstantiated magical claims of religion and the fallacious and misguided arguments used in defense of those claims. The most formidable weapon against errors of every kind is Reason and John’s mission is to instruct as many possible in how to wield that weapon.
“Beware the irrational, however seductive. Shun the ‘transcendent’ and all who invite you to subordinate or annihilate yourself. Distrust compassion; prefer dignity for yourself and others. Don’t be afraid to be thought arrogant or selfish. Picture all experts as if they were mammals. Never be a spectator of unfairness or stupidity. Seek out argument and disputation for their own sake; the grave will supply plenty of time for silence. Suspect your own motives, and all excuses. Do not live for others any more than you would expect others to live for you.” ― Christopher Hitchens
“The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things in life like love, meaning, motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people in life recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation. For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And lessen the suffering of others. You’d be surprised how far that gets you.” ― Neil deGrasse Tyson’s
