I find it very hard to defend atheists when they get butthurt so easily.

Like really, you're charging in as the "smart guys" yet here you are getting mad about something you don't believe exists.
User avatar #353 to #322 - kalquemex (05/03/2012) [-]
I don't think its necessarily getting mad about something that doesn't exist and is more about getting mad at people who believe it exists.

Why does it matter to atheists though?

If atheists "know" nothing happens when you die, they literally have nothing to fear and people can keep practicing their religion.

Well, you can easily say that there are an afterlife without us having any proof against it, like you cant dissaprove my pet beeing a 12 feet tall invisible dinasour.

But if you look at the brain for a sec, the brain has a certain spot in the middle it's the area that gathers information for what we see, feel and hear, it is the spot for conciousness, when you die your heart stops, your blodflow to the brain carrying oxygen stops aswell leaving your brain incapable of reading any information from anything, you are stone dead, you dont see anything, feel anything or hear anything.

****** up my previous comment so...

LETS TRY AGAIN

I think that a lot of people on the internet perceive religious people as inherently less intelligent and attack and berate them more than they would in real life. I don't think that anyone "knows" what happens after death, no one, not athiests, christians ect. I personally believe thats its more likely that death does not lead to an afterlife set forth by one of the 3 dozen religions on earth, and I assume most athiests do too.

I think it isn't necessarily animosity for theists, but rather the detrimental effects it can have on the progression of humanity as a whole. I.e Crusades, inquisitions, suppression of scientific evidence that disproves the church, etc.

I'm not atheist though

You're employing the logical fallacy of the confusion of origin. Atheism didn't cause Stalin to do that, rather his insanity did. Atheism doesn't teach to send christians to work camps or outright kill them. The Pope ordered things like The Crusades.

Firstly, you're saying that as if every single atheist is like that.
Secondly, it's actually fairly annoying speaking to someone who's somehow reached such a level of stupidity that you could explain to them perfectly the evidence behind the fact of evolution and even tell them where they can find more about it for themselves, and they suddenly come up with some more bullcrap or just raise their hand and leave. It's pathetic to be that stupid, and it's hurting the human species. Now, I can honestly swear I've never said this before, but religion truly does have to end, for the good of our species.
User avatar #460 to #411 - drunkturtle (05/03/2012) [-]
Agreed. Not only is it harmful to free thought (and mankind), it's ultimately pointless.

Religion was created by man to explain things like life, death, purpose. All the unanswered questions that they didn't have the technology to find the answers to. But now, we are more advanced, we can answer more and more questions asked since the beginning of man, even if it is a slow process.

Since we can do all of that, what do we need religion for anymore? It just seems like a primative idea.
User avatar #452 to #411 - stolkenator (05/03/2012) [-]
Firstly, I know about that, I've met some charming atheist fellows.
Secondly, Don't talk to them then.

Also, religion has to end? I guess we can't allow smart people to enjoy something just because some dumb people are very vocal about their beliefs then. We may as well get rid of all the art and philosophies it inspired/created too, because that's stupid for humans. You're blowing religion way out of proportion, dude. Getting rid of something isn't going to magically fix everything.

There will always be stupid people, religious or not.

I think the main problem is that most people aren't smart enough to realize that science and religion should go hand-in-hand. If you approach things logically, rather than irrationally (hurr durr, universe was created in 6 literal days), then things start making more sense.

<Stephen Hawking, for example. This guy is vastly intelligent, all involved with space and science, and yet he believes in creation.

I believe that science is simply the means by which God created the universe.

Okay, he never said he was smarter. He said nobody can know the truth, so he follows the faith that doesn't make you go to Church early in the morning.   
   
He never said Atheism was better than any other religion. If anything, it was a slight dig on atheists, implying that the only reason they were atheists is b/c they want to get out of church.   
   
You assumed he thought he was smarter than you. He never said that. You are the perfect example of butthurt religious ppl whining on atheist posts.

Atheism is the belief that no god exists. What you are talking about it the big bang theory and the theory of evolution. Completely and utterly unrelated. Also completely and utterly incorrect.
#1869 to #1731 - xmattx (05/07/2012) [-]
atheism basically breaks down to "no religion". it is a lack of belief, because belief in a negative, as you have proposed, is ******* stupid. i dont believe in any of the religions that have been proposed to me. Due to this failure on their part, I do not believe that a god exists. I'm not saying that i believe there is no god. there is a difference. also, sorry about commenting on this old post, i just want you to have an accurate representation of what atheists (don't) believe. :) pm me if you would like to discuss things with an atheist who's not an asshole about it.

I think the point he's trying to make is that if you believe that no God exists, i.e. you are atheist, then you are essentially saying you believe that something arose from nothing. If you think I am mistaken in this assumption, please let me know what anyone who doesn't believe that God created the World thinks in contrast.
#1787 to #1694 - EllieMuffin (05/04/2012) [-]
Makes more sense than something that never existed in the first place. :o Jesus actually did live, as opposed to nothing. Which was nothing. And therefore nothing. Nothing more.
#1831 to #1797 - EllieMuffin (05/04/2012) [-]
Yea, but the thing is, when there's nothing, there is no science. Because it's nothing. o-o;   
   
Picture unrelated other than the fact that cats are great. :o
