My blog posts on religion have attracted a lot of controversy. Religious people are annoyed by my claim that belief in God will go the way of horse transportation, and for much the same reason, specifically an improved standard of living.

They are so desperate to find something to attack us with, so they link us to evil dictators such as Pol Pot and Stalin as if we atheists had a bible in which these murderers were honored as prophets. What they cannot seem to grasp is that atheism is an idea, not a religion or philosophy. It's one single commandment is to not believe in a God. We have no holy books to link us.
Yeah. It frightens them to realize that there are people who not only see religion for the bullshit that it is, but also refuse to drink of the bullshit and call it "honey".

They hate that last bit-- because they have drunk so much bullshit themselves, they resent anyone who doesn't do that.

They are pathetic.

Crap.
You say that stalin was trained to be a priest?
How about a link to that?
Yep. He studied at divinity school-- I do not know (or care) which one. Google is your friend. I'm not your teacher--even though I keep schooling you in reality...

He did what **all** True Believers™ do: he destroyed the competition.

Only **his** brand of religion was allowed.

Just like **all** religions, throughout history...

No... No I do not. I assume you mean "you" like "you atheists". If not, please inform me what I said and possibly where I've said it.
I will, however, point out the violence in the bible and use it as an example of why it is not a good book to live by. That being said... I would not say that all believers are guilty of these things that have occurred. That would be bigotry.
<quoted text>
I also do not "deem" my own judgements as infallible. I would want to imagine at this point that you have me confused with someone else... But I assume the reality is that you are once again generalizing and making assertions simply because I call myself an atheist.
Again... Unlike god does with Adam and Eve... I would not and do not judge everyone as guilty of the crimes of their ancestors. That would be silly to hold everyone accountable for such a thing. Judging a group of people ....again... Is bigotry
<quoted text>
I have seen so many debates with people going round and round with these comments and I am not like many atheists who will list all of the murders and wars in the name of god... Because it doesn't matter. Crazy people are crazy.... Murderers are murderers.... It is just as ridiculous as the debate on hitler being Roman Catholic. I don't care. He was not a good person... And if he was Hindu.... I would not then decide that all Hindu people were evil murders.... Because again... That would be bigotry.
<quoted text>
A bigotry brush?! Interesting.
<quoted text>
Thank you for your input.... Learning can be fun. Let me educate you on something in return:
Bigot: a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance
Now I have a prediction.... You with attempt to turn this around on atheists... And label them all as bigots...
Even more interesting though... Even after I point out right now the irony in calling all theists bigots is in itself bigotry.... This will probably not stop you.
:-)
Have a nice day.
There are atheists, there are non-deists such as buddhists and jains.
And then there are Topix atheists which quite frankly consist of the scum of society.
Look at the Topix atheists, we have a pornographer/sex tourist, a pedophile and frankfurt school marxist, a cross dresser posing as a woman, a promiscuous coalburner, a compulsive liar with a Jesus complex, and a self appointed snitch who has political motivations.
And its through their own words which is the proof or at the very least would make anyone strongly suspect them of these activities.
.
So in all honesty....why are you hanging out with these arseholes?
I notice you have the = sign as an AV.
Why?
The dropkicks have the same, do you really want to follow them?

Worshipping your ancestors does not make one a theist, I'd like a link to the source that YOU use to make this claim.
If someone keeps a picture of their dead parents and lights a candle for them does that alone make then a theist for doing so?

You call the bible evil so this means you fully agree with killing. And watching the actions of atheists proves it. Your disciples should be imprisoned and chained for life.
Your powers of logical reasoning are epically sh*t.

Ans.
Your case is not unique, this is the lot of people who do not use their brains and power of reason and analysis, which their Creator has built into them.
On one hand you have these ideas that only cover the “Physical side” of your body, that it will be slowly destroyed and mix with the earth from which it generated.
But your physical body is not the only thing, there is also a soul, what is difference between a dead body and a living body?
On one side you have people, not one of them, but hundreds of them, who never spoke a lie, telling you that this life is not the end of matters, There is another life , in which you will be asked to give accounts of your life.
This is both reasonable and logical. Seeing the power and authority which humans have on this earth. With the Power and authority comes the responsibility, and in your “mechanical model” there is no responsibility of any kind, once a man dies, that is end of matter.
There is no difference (according to your logic) between Hitler and those 6 Million Jews he killed.? Is it.
If you want to close your eyes with all these factors and just say there is no higher purpose of my life, I am born, I grow up, and I eat, drink and procreate and then I die just like any animal does…well it is your choice.
But you have no authority to tell that this is “Most reasonable and most logical way”….. and that this is the way that will replace religions.
Atheists are just like Bulls in a China Shop, they cause all destruction and build nothing!!
You have no proof of god, yet are talking? Do you not understand that we don't believe religious liars like you with no proof or evidence to speak of?

When you become brave enough to show us proof, you will grow up out of posting 50 lines of religious hateful rubbish.

Wheres your evidence?
Yeah.....Pol Pots kampuchea was a real spiritual realm wasnt it?
Marxist parasite
Again, you cannot show us with your mighty theist intelligence, where in the definition of Atheism, it instructs us to wipe out entire populations?

The only place I can remember that sh8t happening is in your religious books.

If this is really your actual beef with atheism, only your imaginary god can save your from your personal hell of being an ignorant sh*thead who doesn't even know what he hates, before hating it.

1. Atheists do not want religion to be abolished (we just want it to stop telling proven lies and be brave enough to take responsibilty for the damage it causes).
2. Atheists do not want atheism enforced (its totally against personal freedom that atheists believe in)
3. Atheists do not believe in god - this says NOTHING about their individual politics. Get it right tw*t.
4. Grow the f*ck up you coward.
5. Thanks for admitting that you are an ignorant fool.

From bobs profile page, hes all for democracy isnt he?
Doesnt seem to like free speech or free choice does he?

politics as an alternative to war, the problem with democracies is that you get EXACTLY what you vote for...

So you must only watch documentaries and read non-fiction.

You could never watch any form of drama, or any Hollywood blockbuster, in case you had an opinion, and such opinions are haram!

Do you realise how mental your argument is now?

The right of free speech is not the right to freely abuse.

Only a child would do so.
