Most “Atheists” aren’t atheist. They are simply anti-religion. If they were really atheists, they wouldn’t think about or debate about religion or the religious. Religion wouldn’t matter to them in the same way that television…
Get back to me when atheists kill millions of people and slow down the social and technological progress of the world in the name of not god.
Mao was an atheist. He killed over 40,000,000 people.
Stalin and Lenin were both atheists and they most certainly killed millions of people because of those people’s belief in religion.
Both sides are flawed because, as priceofliberty said, both are religions which are filled with religious extremists.
princeforpeace asked: Actually, as racism in America has died down, the pitiful human minds have found new differences to fixate on, such as income and property. If you eliminate income inequality and property, idiots will then focus in on things like height and eye color and beauty. It’s not the topic of fixation that’s the problem, it’s the human mind. *(Agreed)* Thank you!!
I didn’t do anything, but you’re welcome.
Also, don’t take my words as a damning of humanity. I’m just saying that if we want to cure ethical issues, we can’t legislate, regulate or force people into certain philosophical or intellectual positions. We have to approach it from a ‘lack of knowledge’ or ‘misinformation’ standpoint and simply give them the information they lack and allow them to come to their own senses.
Atheism is a Religion
Its a derivative of secular humanism.
I never considered that
It is a religion. It’s the belief of nothing.
To me, atheism is as silly as any religion.
Atheists condemn religion for being devout in their beliefs that something unproven exists. Yet they themselves are 100% sure something unproven doesn’t exist. How? The gap in logic is painful.
We are talking about ideas which can’t even be a hypothesis because they are not testable. How do you test for the existence of god? How do you test for the absence of god? You can’t.
There’s nothing scientific or logical to either approach. They are both just silly psychological illnesses of humans which come about due to fear, boredom, ignorance, ego and all of the other bullshit that makes us primitive apes.
Does anyone else realize how incredible of a time we are living in?
Practically the entire planet, every corner and certainly every civilized continent is a midst protect, culture change, revolution and questioning. Questioning our existence, questioning our actions, questioning authority and questioning our destiny.
Yet, it seems as if no one is appreciating the beauty of the chaos we live in. We are seeing a time of civil unrest and conscious awakening that’s greater than the revolutionary era of 1776 to 1799 that saw both the American Revolution and the French Revolution.
The last few years has brought us the Arab Spring, the global Occupy movement, Wikileaks, the dissent and move to third and even fourth parties both here in America and abroad. We are seeing the weakening of political unions and the strengthening of localized, accessible government and even the promotion of self governance. The rise of Voluntaryism. The belief that voluntary interaction is not only better, but best.
The entire world is changing, at once. There is a global alignment of thought without coercion.
This isn’t the new world order that conspiracy theorists have feared for decades, this is the new world order that humanity has desperately seeking for millennia.
