I was watching TV the other day, and there was a program about belief, and both atheists and religious people where on there talking about there beliefs.
On it where some people that claimed to be Christian Atheists. They went on to explain a little about what they believed. They said that they where Christians in the sense that they believed that 2000 years ago there was a man named Jesus Christ that had a brilliant mind, and vision of world peace, and that they worshipped Jesus as just another human being, not the what they called the "Fairy tale" belief in Jesus. They said that there Christian atheism was about spreading Jesus’ words of wisdom and message of peace around the world and nothing else, they where not concerned with a god, most believed there was no god at all, but focused souly on Jesus’ good teachings, not to help others find salvation, but to spread peace around the world.
I had never heard about Christian atheism before until that program, but it seems they have quite a following. Has anyone else heard of this before? Or even know anyone that is involved in it?. I do not know how old it is, or if it only exists here in the UK, but what are your views on this?
All the best
