Please note that for this article "Atheism" also includes agnostics, deists, pagans, wiccans... in other words non-religious.

You will notice this is a statement of fact. And to be fact it is supported by evidence (see references below). Now you can have "faith" that this is not true, but by the very definition of faith, that is just wishful thinking.

It's not a matter of who, it's a matter of the evidence.
I'm not interested in clever quotes you ask people to like and share on facebook.
Did he present testable evidence for the existence of a god?

"Laces out" doesn't even make sense.

Why are we psychopath?

We deliver the message of truth to people and are ready to answer their doubts and questions.

But if they continue to reject the truth, who is to blame?

If they choose to fall from a high cliff, why the creator of cliff is Psychopath? No one forced them to fall from that cliff.

They chose to fall from the cliff and they should face the consequences.

What type of reverse logic is yours?

Do you mean to say that we should say "come, come, take a good view from this cliff, fall if you want, nothing will happen to you?

How illogical and psychopath YOU people sound!!

Many consider blowing yourself up to kill children being a psychopath. It's an honor in Islam as you have admitted.

Different atheists have different standards of morality. Humanists like me believe that certain moral principles like not killing, not stealing are basic common sense rules that are necessary for the survival of society. whereas your Muslim morals are purely subjective and ridiculous.
Ans.

I appreciate your "subjective opinion" about Islamic Morals.

And it shows that you have no knowledge about Islam and are confusing Islam with Muslims.

As for different atheists having different standards is self evident by the "very definition of Atheism".

I hope the same 'Atheist" principles be used in Army and Police and other "organized units" to see how effective they become.

01. Most of the Animal Kingdom only kills for food nor will they fight to the death. Are they therefore more moral than us? There are certain basic, universal 'morals' that are so basic and so universal they are almost instinctual. "Don't foul your own nest", "don't kill members of your own species" and "protect the young" are examples. We can largely thank religion for helping us overcome these natural incentives. In fact, it's safe to say that religion's impact on Humanity has been largely Amoral, violent and divisive.

02. What Atheists, Free Thinkers and Humanists are struggling towards is a way of life, a way of thinking ... where we do not judge or expect people to be reflections of ourselves..

03. You really got to chuck off religion, superstition, ignorance and your preconceptions to get there and it ain't easy. It doesn't really make you feel good, not like simply going .

Thank You.
Ans.

01. You are right, animals kill for food and survival. But humans are not animals, they do not kill other humans for "food or survival".

They kill and enslave and plan to kill and torture other humans and nations and groups which "no Animal might have ever imagined".

For animals there is no question of morality because they kill to survive.

It is humans who have the question of morality to answer for their actions.

Religions impact on society is never immoral or violent or divisive¬Ö.however there have been many people who "use the name of religion" to further their own desires and their vanities.

No religion is to be blamed for these acts.

02. You are right, atheist are "free thinkers" and any thing "free" swings from one extreme to another extreme.

So we find Atheists of one age or one nation having views which are totally opposite to the views of atheists of another nation.

Since they lack any other source of information, other than their own minds, so they keep on making "experiments"

And that has landed us on the "necessity" to treat Sodomites and Lesbians like "equals" to propagate nudity, free sex and use of gambling, alcohol and narcotics.

Atheists would turn this world into a "free" world no doubt and that might be early end to human civilization.

03. You are free to make your view about religion. My job is to present the truth as best as I can and leave the rest to our Creator.

Islam does not teach that you blow your children to kill innocent men, women and children.

Those doing it, might be psychopath, but they are not following teachings of Islam.

How killing innocent people be an honor in Islam? It is regarded as One of Biggest of the Big sins.

Yet you have been given several opportunities to condemn the 911 hijackers for example and have each time refused to do so. That tells us the real story and your real stance on the issue.

Honestly Muq look around you. Just look around you. The entire Middle East is a cauldron of hate and violence with much of it being directed towards other Muslims! Sin Muq? No. People who believe in Islam use passages from the Quran to defend and explain why they send mentally retarded children with a bomb strapped to their chest into a shopping mall to kill as many children as possible.

If you think that religion is the only thing that stops you from killing people, that makes you a psychopath.
If you were to stop believing in your god for a few minutes or your faith even faltered, your publicly voiced opinions claim that you would go out and jut murder someone.

You don't have any morals - you're not able to tell the truth that god isn't real. What serious conversation can you hope to have here?

Wife insults is all you've got. It's not like you're going to magic proof of god out of a hat suddenly are you?

Most people f*ck off after losing an argument, but you are content to bask in the resulting shame and embarrassment of making an asshat of yourself.

Well then ... we've pretty much established that the preponderance of Humanity "benefits" from the influence of one religion or another. It is from religion that we "must" derive a moral compass, else we would simply not know right from wrong. Yet, in your own words humans "kill and enslave and plan to kill and torture other humans and nations and groups which "no Animal might have ever imagined". Is it not then clear that religion (pick one) has failed us? How can you not see that the various religions, as they compete for the hearts and minds of humanity (and ultimately, world domination) as THE driving force behind virtually all Human conflict?? Is it not in this constant conflict that Mankind has squandered it's treasure, poisoned our planet, ground our people and our greatest civilizations to dust? Are we not engaged in this madness even today, at this very moment?

Religion (pick one) is the most vile, most destructive, most counter-productive construct of the Human mind ... ever. Even so, you people, you Religionists wave your holy books, feebly thump your empty chests, pat each other on the back and support each others delusions and for what? Your Heavenly reward of course. Your assurance from your religion (pick one) that you've done all the right stuff, murmured all the proper prayers, dressed right, stood right, bowed right, banged your empty little heads right and now you've earned yourself a spot in some kind of eternal Paradise. Congratulations.
