ATHEIST MANIFESTO HERMAN PHILIPSE PDF

Originally published in , Philipse brought out a new version in that included a new bundle of four essays titled De onredelijkheid van religie "The Unreasonableness of Religion". In the short book, Philipse opines that one can speak rationally about the existence of God , but if one wishes to take the natural sciences seriously, one needs to reject the traditional meaning of the word 'God'. However, if one wished to define the word 'God' as something unknowable, God cannot have any descriptive contents and therefore not exist. Thus there is no grounding for theistic morality. Philipse claimed that all arguments thus far proposed for the existence of God were invalid, while the theologians argued Philipse had insufficiently delved into the matter, missed the religious context, and ignored how much consolation belief in God offered. In , Philipse published a new and much more elaborate book, God in the Age of Science?

Photo Credit: petruscanisiusparochie. The Church has the mission to preserve the life of the earth. She defends the unborn life. But what if there will not be any habitable earth in the future? Professor Philipse presents a plea to give now to the people of the future — those who are not yet born — an election vote through an ombudsman, and even through a fixed number of seats in parliament.

Only under such conditions, Philipse says, can a new government be forced to deal responsibly with the challenges of climate change. It is certain that he and I think very differently about how we can achieve that goal. I believe however that the church is playing a positive role, even here. She has developed a broad perspective, looks further ahead than the next week and has a distinctive sensitivity for the long-term outlook.

Despite all the mediocrity and poverty that we can find within the church, an essential difference is made by leaders who at the same time are visionaries : people like Carlo Maria Martini, Jean Vanier, Mother Teresa, Pedro Arrupe, and Dorothy Day.

Last year, even the Society of Jesus published its vision of sustainability and ecology, Healing a Broken World. He who is launching a campaign should occasionally upload his mental batteries: the church offers the space to do that. In the Molenstraat Church in Nijmegen, over a hundred solar panels on the roof will be installed next week. The same Effata Parish in Nijmegen recently carried out major maintenance works for insulation, efficient heating, and lighting.

Obviously, each church should be a green church. That is a necessary rather than a revolutionary step. The true mission of the church however is much more radical. Those who strive for the preservation of creation will find in the church the space to regain forces and orientation, observe inner movements, find rest.

In the church, I find consolation in the Eucharist and in the forgiveness which is articulated within. I am challenged by the question raised by the eyes of the other and by the Word, which indeed often is uncomfortable. This article was originally published in Ignis Webmagazine last 15 October This post is also available in: Spanish. The article is a timely one. The arguments for the earth is radical and more than what we usually hear.
