I don’t know what you mean by original sin. Other Christians have told me how they undertand it, and I have an understanding of that term from when I was a Christian myself, but it might not align with yours, or @Swamidass’.
With that understanding from my own time as a Christian, and from similar ideas expressed to me by various other Christians, I am saying I find the concept repugnant and unjust.
But I am an atheist, not a Christian any more. So since I don’t actually believe that there is such a thing as original sin that can be transgenerationally transmitted to others, I am not blaming anyone for it. I am expressing a criticism of the concept, and I am asking for clarification now that @Swamidass has responded that he apparently is using the term in a different way from how I have understood it.
Yes, completely. Can you link me one of your dozen explanations of the concept? The one you consider your best, if there is such a thing.
Well first of all it was not at any point made clear that this is exclusively a Christian vs Christian dialogue. But even so I do not agree that I am “trashing” Christianity. Saying that I find some concept within Christian thought to be unjust, or meaningless, or undefined, or repugnant, is not trashing Christianity in any meaningful sense of that word unless all I am doing is literally just to throw single-word invectives around. But I tried to at least briefly mention why I find it unjust. I had hoped someone saw this as a challenge to provide some sort of rebuttal, and explain to me how it isn’t actually unjust to tarnish someone else with guilt of having committed sins before they even existed.
