Well, let’s see. Religion entails believing in a floaty thing that has no substance, cannot be seen by mortals, makes things (universes, galaxies, planets, suns, people, animals, plants, etc.) ex-nihilo, and knows everything there is to know about everything in the universe.<quoted text>
Your religion of atheism is a lie, why do you embrace and support lies? Trying to find solace in this worn out thread, I see.
It also entails going to some kind of church or building where people congregate and say weird things and pray, praise, and sing in honor of the God mentioned above.
You must also tithe 10% of your net paycheck to this church or building so they can pay the pastor, who decides for you what the Bible means and makes sure you are not living in sin (which is usually connected with sex). Any moneys left over are put towards paying the mortgage, and sometimes missionary work.
Most of these churches/religions believe that their God made just two humans (male and female they were) about 6,000+- years ago, and that these 2 mated and produced children who then mated and, using incest at first, produced all the people on earth and are our ancestors
Most of these churches/religions also make their members believe that a man named Noah, on Gods direction, built a big wooden boat and took 2 or 7 of ALL animals on earth (including dinosaurs that lived 65+- million years before Noah) and sat out, in this boat, a Godly produced world-wide flood that lasted almost a year.
They also have to believe that a hundred years or so after the flood of Noah, God floated down from heaven and scrambled the language of some folks hanging around the plains of Shinar. Why he never scrambled the languages of China, India, the Americas, Korea, Japan, Malaysia, all of Europe and other parts of Asia are not known.
There are many other things they are required to believe, but time is short here.
Another thing these religions are required to do is bother and irritate people who are not of their own particular branch of insanity. Some of them are relegated to coming to these forums such as we are now on and act totally crazy and say the stupidest things and try to give atheists the heebie jeebies and nervous breakdown.
Now atheism, on the other hand, just requires that you don’t believe a God of any kind exists. If you want, you can join groups that promote atheism and donate money to them, but it is not required.
No meetings required, no beliefs to remember other than that there is no God. You don’t even have to admit you are an atheist…..but you really should proselytize those damn Christians.
