Why Do Atheists Ridicule Christianity?

May 5, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Free Republic

'RELIGION SHOULD BE TREATED WITH RIDICULE, HATRED AND CONTEMPT' Atheism, or 'antitheism,' which was once considered taboo in America, has gone somewhat mainstream in today's society.

When you use words like all, you lose your credibility. People that speak in absolutes speak based on emotions not logic. By the way, as an atheist, it makes more sense to me that the tiniest of particles evolved into matter and organisms over zillions of years than some diety that just came out of nowhere. Have a great day.

ALL Atheists are narrow minded.Without Religion,you will only succeed in finding 1/2 truth.I do not hate Atheists.I respect many of them and their views.Of course evolution has been at work in the past;and,very possibly still is?However,where did the very FIRST particle come from?

Where did god come from..... END OF STORY

I admit I can not explain everything.That said; It makes zero sense to me that god came out of nowhere. If you choose to believe that, that is your right. I am a logical thinker and I will never believe that. Remember most people thought the world was flat and that the sun revolved around the earth and they were wrong. People that believe in WIZARDRY IN THE SKY are wrong as well. Just because I choose to not buy into some WIZARDRY IN THE SKY, does not make me narrowminded. In fact , you just help me more so. You prove to be judgmental and arrogant, another negative trait of MANY believers in WIZARDRY IN THE SKY. I would never say all as you do. Have a great day.

God isn't real. You're brainwashed by your religion. Nobody cares what you think because you opinions are not your own.

IMHO it is people like you who are narrow minded.

"having a biased or illiberal viewpoint; bigoted, intolerant, or prejudiced"

Without religion it would be possible for us to find out much more about the world around us in a shorter period of time. Resorting to superstition and magic every time we find encounter something we do not understand is a good way of going nowhere. It's only by being honest and saying I don't know / don't understand' that knowledge progresses. Saying 'goddidit' just prevents any further investigation and is contradictory. It's akin to saying 'I don't know but I do know'.

Liar, you have just called them narrow minded.

Perhaps it has alway been here. It's quite possible our universe has always existed and is merely going through a series of expansions and contractions. Anyway, do you understand biological evolution deals with how life developed AFTER it had started and has nothing to do with how the current universe began?

please quantify "narrow minded" it's too subjective :)

I think it's important to base your world view on facts opposed to fantasy. Please feel free to show me what I'm missing by not embracing fantasy, and I don't mean as a form of entertainment.

I find the opposite to be true. Atheist are open minded and would welcome a kind loving god.The bible thumpers are the close minded. They always think that the atheist are weird and hopeless.I just think thumpers are delusional and feel sorry for them.I see no proof of a god like the one that was written about in the goat herder written bible.Yet I am open minded.I think the universe itself is the creator of everything out there.It was always here and always will be.The thumpers believe thet god always was here and yet cant believe that the universe was.

... or the xtian concept of "hate the sin, not the sinner".
..
well, it's easy to support the troops, but not the war
but when they use the word sin to define things that are personal indentifiers - like being gay - you can't separate the sin from the sinner

which is probably why they are so keen to prevent women from having abortions - they can't get over the whole apple thing, so are donig whatever they can to be punitive to women when it comes to anything related to sex.

sex is too core to our identities - "sex" is used simultaneously to refer to (and includes) both gender and sexuality and gender sexuality, sexual preferences, expression

our gender and sexuality forms a major part of our relationship with the world

there is much that is valued and devalued that informs and forms our sexuality

we also judge others based on attractiveness - often overrriding other concerns - such as fairness, reason, morals

so love the sinner and hate the sin is nonsense and yet another impossible standard to create and set up followers as failed people

because you can't separate any identity aspect from the person identified.

poking fun at religion is the kinder option to point out the inconsistencies and flaws

since beleivers clearly do not respond to facts or logic.

Correct.Atheists ridicule Christianity because They consider Us worshippers of many Gods,The Trinity.Christians worship One God,God the Father;Jesus Christ is the Son of God;The Holy Spirit [Ghost] is the Spirit of God.

Are not you 'brainwashed'by your lack of belief in God?Of course,my views regarding Religion are not my own.Religion is based upon Faith.If you insist upon applying only pragmatism to existence;then, Professor Einstein summed it up best:"ALL that we know is that we are here;and,that we are here now?"

There is no proof that the universe always was.There is no proof that the universe is the creator of everything.Bible Thumpers are at least open minded enough to allow for the possibilty of a Creator.Atheists are not;that is why I apply the term 'narrow-minded'to them.It is not meant to be a derogatory or hateful description.

This isn't a thread about if Christianity is real. It's a thread about atheists ridiculing Christianity. You are the one doing the ridiculing...

The big bang is not a belief system, it is a scientific theory.

That means it is logically consistent and there is some verified physical evidence to support it. It also means that no physical evidence that doesnt support it has been identified as yet.

Christianity on the other hand is a belief system. It is logically inconsistent and there is no physical evidence to support its claims and lots of evidence to dispell its claimed ( many of which are found in the bible itself)

I hope you are able to read and understand plain english.

In case you are not, I suggest you go back to your cult, and they can explain you the fairy story you prefer to believe.

I don't understand how you can be so goofy and not get hit by a speeding truck. Not sure if you can be cured of that recto-cranial condition, but give it a shot, you'll feel much better.
