evidence

If you’re saying that “faith doesn’t require evidence, otherwise it wouldn’t be faith”, you don’t sound smart.

Rather, you are admitting to the very thing I’m accusing faith of being: out of touch with reality, reason and facts.

Good job! 😅

There’s a reason we don’t teach astrology, fortune-telling, horoscopes, telepathy or homeopathy at schools – they’re bullshit, they are claims not supported by any credible evidence. Yet when it comes to religion, some countries are fine with teaching it in schools. What the fuck?

Z jakichś powodów nie uczymy astrologii, wróżbiarstwa, horoskopów, telepatii czy homeopatii w szkołach – ponieważ są bzdurami, są twierdzeniami niewspartymi przez żadne wiarygodne dowody. Jednak w przypadku religii niektóre kraje nie widzą problemu z nauczaniem ich w szkołach. What the fuck?

You cannot say that water has no memory / god does not exist / horoscopes are rubbish / whatever just like that... Remember what Shakespear said: “There are more things in heaven and earth, than are dreamt of in your philosophy”!

Well, I can. I so can. Because this argument is invalid...

Nie możesz tak od razu mówić, że woda nie ma pamięci / bozia nie istnieje / horoskopy są z dupy wzięte / whatever... Bo w końcu Shakespear powiedział, że “są rzeczy na niebie i na ziemi, o których się filozofom nie śniło”!

Nie no, mogę. Jak najbardziej mogę. To ten argument jest inwalidą...

As much as I love Cohen’s Hallelujah, there’s one verse that always bothered me. “Your faith was strong, but you needed proof”. Seriously? It’s not how those words work!

If you require proof or evidence to believe in something, it’s called common sense, not faith.

If you accepted some fact after being presented evidence for it, it’s called knowledge.

If you believe in something despite the lack of evidence, that’s faith.

It’s not that hard to get those words right.
