Historically, Atheism has rarely been a blanket denial of the sacred per se but has nearly always rejected a particular conception of the divine. At an early stage of their history, Christians and Muslims were both called “atheists” by their pagan contemporaries, not because they denied the reality of God but because their conception of divinity was so different that it seemed blasphemous. Atheism is therefore parasitically dependent on the form of theism it seeks to eliminate and becomes its reverse mirror image. Classical Western atheism was developed during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries by Feuerbach, Marx, Nietzsche, and Freud, whose ideology was essentially a response to and dictated by the theological perception of God that had developed in Europe and the United States during the modern period. The more recent atheism of Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, and Sam Harris is rather different, because it has focused exclusively on the God developed by the fundamentalisms, and all three insist that fundamentalism constitutes the essence and core of all religion. This has weakened their critique, because fundamentalism is in fact a defiantly unorthodox form of faith that frequently misrepresents the tradition it is trying to defend. But the “new atheists” command a wide readership, not only in secular Europe but even in the more conventionally religious United States. The popularity of their books suggests that many people are bewildered and even angered by the God concept they have inherited.[ … ]

It is a pity that Dawkins, Hitchens and Harris express themselves so intemperately because some of their criticisms are valid. Religious people have indeed committed atrocities and crimes, and the fundamentalist theology the new atheists attack is indeed ‘unskilful’ [sic], as the Buddhists would say. But they refuse, on principle, to dialogue with theologians who are more representative of mainstream tradition. As a result, their analysis is disappointingly shallow, because it is based on such poor theology. In fact the new atheists are not radical enough. Jewish, Christian and Muslim theologians have insisted for centuries that God does not exist and that there is ‘nothing’ out there; in making these assertions their aim was not to deny the reality of God but to safeguard God’s transcendence. But in our talkative and highly opinionated society, we seem to have lost sight of this important tradition, which could solve many of our religious problems.

Apparently J.K Rowling knows the exact process to making a horcrux.

But she hasn’t told anyone and doesn’t plan to yet.

The only person that she has told is her editor, and said that her editor felt like vomiting afterwards.

All she will say is that a certain spell is involved, and then a horrific act is performed.

i want to know what it is so badly

The weird part about it is, it means he would have had to have done it to Harry, and since he fled it doesn’t make a whole lot of fucking sense.

Yeh but Harry was an accidental horcrux that he didn’t know about, and I bet it has something to do with his mum dying for him fucking up the magic of the killing curse? That would make sense.

False rape accusations are an anomaly.

True rape accusations are a norm.

You’re, quite literally, more likely to be killed by a comet than falsely accused of rape.

Re-blog now, read later.

"Because 1 in 33 men will be raped in his lifetime, men are 82,000x more likely to be raped than falsely accused of rape. It seems many of us would do well to pay more attention to how rape culture affects us all than be paranoid about false accusers.”
