I Renounce Sod

I am an atheistic fella who never really had any problem leaving religion behind. This was mainly because religion never really had enough impact in my life to gain any momentum. I have heard some atheists talk about a period of time, after leaving their religion, where they experienced feelings of worry and doubt linked to indoctrinated dogma. I may be currently having similarly illogical feelings after signing up to the NHS Organ Donation Register.

This may sound silly to you, but it shouldn’t sound any sillier than an atheist fearing the repercussions of a religious afterlife. There seems to be a not often talked about, yet widely held belief in the temptation of fate. The scenario goes like this; you sign up to donate your organs after your death, this somehow leads to you dying before your anticipated time because a more worthy soul deserves to inherit life at your expense. Whereas, the alternate scenario without donation goes; you live to a ripe old age, and your organs by this time are of no use to anyone.

My indoctrination was a curious one that relied on the feelings of disappointment associated with the failure of seemingly mundane tasks as confirmatory evidence. This has resulted in a fallacious and delusory belief in Sod’s law. Once causality is again King of the Mind, which won’t be too long, I can hopefully begin to convince people to become organ donors too.

    I think more people should do the same as you. It’s not like we’re going to use them for anything after we die, anyway. Unless we want to cryogenically freeze ourselves, that is.
