Do you not realise that atheism in America is the least trusted most discriminated most hated minority in America and probably any western country. It is equivalent to being gay in the 50's. People just don't make a big deal about because it is such an overwhelming majority who are christian. BTW My username in Imagewicked but my computer won't log in :(.

**anonymous rolls 5,422** Actually, I don´t find that to be all true, I do see a lot of hate towards eachother when it comes to atheists and religious people, however they do not claim that they´re "Proud" of what they are. They simply accept their belief. However, what I find annoying is gay people, or black people going "I´m gay and proud of it"/"I´m black and proud of it". You are born gay or black, it´s nothing to be proud of, you had no choice in it, you´re allowed to be proud of your peoples accomplishments but simply being proud of being born enjoying penis or being born a different color isn´t something to be relatively proud of. All in all though, I have no hate towards any race or sexual orientation, I´m just trying to make a statement.

It's more of a skeptical/rational mindset that unites unbelievers.

Point is, the idea behind atheism isn't to replace an old religion with a new one, but rather simply a lack thereof. For most atheists, religion isn't a big part of their lives anymore.

******** , I've never seen a christian treat an atheist poorly. And let's not forget about The Reign of Terror during the french revolution where people were decapitated just for believing in christianity.
Of course terrible things like the spanish inquisition happened in the name of Christianity, but that was not aimed specifically at atheists, besides the reason that happened in the first place was for political reasons and not faith.
#44 to #42 - anon (01/31/2013) [-]
Pretty sure heresy was punishable by death. Just because you didn't see it happen doesn't mean it didn't. That is after all the argument you use to defend your faith...
#54 to #44 - Vanquix (01/31/2013) [-]
And the argument atheists use is that because they cant see it, it didnt happen. So your argument is now invalid.
#60 to #54 - anaklusmos (01/31/2013) [-]
But Christians didn't see it either and claim that "it" did in fact happen and then provide no good reason to believe so.
#64 to #60 - Vanquix (01/31/2013) [-]
Because reason shouldnt be a part of faith. Im not going to preach, mostly because i cant haha, but i dont understand why it's so hard for people to believe in something they cant see. People who believe in ghosts and luck and all those crazy supernatural things (which i do believe in some of) never get bashed or insulted, or at least not nearly as much as Christians do. And the other thing is that their is documented proof in the Bible. And i know, the argument can be made that it's all a lie created to control people, but be that the truth or not, a lot of good has come out of it. There has been some bad also, but that has mainly been from people twisting the Bible for their own dark purposes. The church has made many people change their ways and feel really good about what theyre doing with their lives. As silly as this might be, im going to relate all this to the Dark Knight trilogy haha: All that peace and goodness came from a lie. Sorry if that just sounded stupid. I was trying to relate the possiblility of the Bible being a lie to something contemporary...and awesome O.o

#78 to #64 - anaklusmos (01/31/2013) [-]
I can only speak for myself but I'm pretty sure most atheists lump all religions and superstitions together. We talk about Christians mainly because they're the biggest group but we think of all other religions with the same contempt. It's not about being able to "believe" that something is there, it's about proving that it is there. Facts are true whether we believe them or not. I could believe that there is a teapot orbiting Jupiter too small for even the most powerful telescope too see but it wont make it any more true. As to there being any "documented proof" of the bible, the book makes thousands of claims and tells hundreds of stories, some of them are bound to be true. But if any are proved false then the whole thing is false because it claims to be the infallible and divine word of God.
Now this may shock you but I am not against modern Christianity, I've seen it pull people out of some really dark places (I've always said Jesus was for people who've hit rock bottom) but I am against many of it's teachings (which I wont bore you with).

TL;DR: I don't feel like I can shorten it so feel free to not read.
p.s: Batman is an Atheist.
#93 to #78 - Vanquix (01/31/2013) [-]
I dont have anything against Atheists who actually know enough about religion to choose to not believe it consciously. I do have a bit of a problem though with Atheists who are Atheists simply because they see no proof or because they just dont want to have to deal with religion. But that doesnt mean im going to hate on them or anything. I just wont have as much respect for them as i do for those Atheists that have delved into religion and come out with enough knowledge to really discuss WHY they dont believe the Bible. And not in a way that they're trying to prove to Christians that everything Christians know is a lie. Just in a way that lets Christians know that they have a legitimate reason for choosing the disbelief or whatever youd like to call it haha. That's how i see it anyway.
#87 to #78 - Vanquix (01/31/2013) [-]
I wouldnt find it boring haha. But if you just dont feel like having to type it all out i can understand that. Also, i think that's just your experience, because pretty much every atheist i know is perfectly open to the possibility of luck and all those other things that only have enough proof to get them a one hour special on the history channel haha. But when it comes to Christianity its a completely different story. Also, the word contempt means that you think a person is beneath consideration, worthless, and deserving of scorn. Not sure if you meant to use that word knowing its meaning or not, but that is how the majority of Atheists treat Christians (mainly the ones that dont know the Bible or any religion other than basic stuff). A lot of Atheists decide to hate religion because of the people, like maybe someone tried to cram religion down their throat (fot the record, being a Christian means that it is your responsibility to spread the word, and i know its annoying but some people choose to do it the "bible thumping" way; read comment #73 if you can), but that makes no sense. Atheists talk about logic and reason, and yet judging a religion based solely on the way some people choose to practice it isnt logical or reasonable. Atheism has one of the same problems Christianity does, and that's that there are a bunch of people who are just calling themselves Atheists even though they never took the time to really understand any religions enough to have the right to not believe in them, the same way there are a bunch of false Christians who just declare themselves as Christians. Atheists' argument is usually all about proof. Proof goes both ways. PROVE it didnt happen. So far, (as far as i know anyways haha) Christians are the only ones between the two that have any sort of proof at all, even if it can be argued to be false(of course, that argument would have no proof either, so it would end up being a stalemate, so to speak).
#136 to #87 - anaklusmos (01/31/2013) [-]
we believe anything else it has to say? Of course you're going to tell me it was an allegory, but the bible doesn't mention anything about it being allegorical so why is there any reason it assume it is? In fact if we didn't have an alternate theory (i use that word loosely because creation isn't a theory) you would insist that this was the way it happened. Christians did so for THOUSANDS of years until they were demonstrably proven wrong and then switched their tune too "Isn't gods design grand? oh that stuff there, it's just a story, we knew that all along".

If his word is flawed, then he is not perfect. If he is not perfect then he cannot be the God he claims to be. So it is better to assume he doesn't exist at all. Just like the way you assume that Thor, Zeus, Horus, Baal, and every other god is man made you may need to sit down and think "maybe my god is too" .
#680 to #136 - Vanquix (02/01/2013) [-]
You're looking at it with human laws of reality. And i know it sounds silly, but God doesn't, or wouldn't, be constrained by the laws of our reality. I choose to believe that either time wasnt the same to Him as it is to us, or that He purposely put all this proof to his book being a lie to test faith. Because, if God exists, than there is no way at all that he wouldnt be able to do that. But of course all these scientists think just like scientists. It never happened and it's not true unless i can see it. What if God created the big bang? There are countless what if's that can help science and religion merge, but most scientists and religious people (and let's be honest, more scientists and atheists than christians) dont want to compromise.
#129 to #87 - anaklusmos (01/31/2013) [-]
Contempt wasn't the right word, I should have said "same degree of skepticism". I personally don't judge Christianity on the way some people practice it. I am very well versed in scripture actually. What I have noticed is that Christians don't read their own holy books and if they do they twist everything in it to fit their world view so they don't look at the bible objectively for what it is. Deuteronomy, for example is a horrifying book that has no place within contemporary Christianity and yet nobody denounces it. They say that the book is taken out of context and that Jesus came in and "changed all that" (although he did no such thing). A merciful god wouldn't require anybody to be stoned to death for infidelity (although I am sure some angry husband wrote that) period. There's no justifying all the needless slaughter of the Canaanites in Exodus or the murder of infants that God commands. People even praise Gideon for the thorough genocide of 33 races of people. The only answer I ever got for these apparent crimes against humanity was that "God knows best". Now as to the proof bit you said, I say that the burden of proof lays with the one who makes the claim but putting that aside I refer you to my teapot comment. I cannot disprove it's existence because no telescope is powerful enough to see it but there is also no good reason to believe that it actually exists. Now when it comes to disproving God let's see, genesis, the story of creation. It says man, animals and the planet were created within a week sometime within the last 12,000 years (I know it doesn't say the number of years but if you count the genealogies backwards it's somewhere around there). Now we know this isn't true. We've seen copious amounts of evidence from multiple fields of science (geology, biology,paleontology, archaeology etc etc) that tell us that this isn't the way things went down. Now if the divinely inspired word of God was already wrong in it's first couple words,then why should-

my gripes with christianity as a whole isnt its message. at its core christianity is about being a good person. anyone whos is against that is just wrong. my issue is the way some christians act. id like to think theres a silent majority but i know a lot of christians who jusdge others based on their beliefs. then theres the people who try to bring it into rational evidence and proof. the really annoying thing is the "prove it doesnt exist" which is a logical fallacy. i have no problem with the people who have sat down thought about it and decided they have faith in christianity or any religion

#73 to #70 - Vanquix (01/31/2013) [-]
Funny you should mention that haha. I actually told my youth pastor that i was going to focus more on being a good person rather than a good Christian. He told me that the two should go hand in hand, and i told him " Actually, i think one should follow the other". Being a true Christian means being a good person overall, and being tolerant and loving. It also means spreading the word of Christ, so dont be too mad about Christians that go around "Bible thumping" haha. They prefer that method of spreading the word. Others like myself prefer to let it be known that we are Christian and let our actions speak. Hopefully we do enough good and selfless things that people will realize what Christianity can help people do. And even if they dont think that, maybe they'll at least think im a good person and try doing some nice things too, and maybe being a good Christian will follow, even if they never choose to be recognized as an "official" Christian. So yeah, i try to be a good person first, and hope that being a good Christian follows haha.

User avatar #305 to #122 - jakekel (01/31/2013) [-]
Primary school, you just accept it as the normality. Because the Christian/Catholic schools were always better than the ****** public ones. But in secondary school they really ease up on it, and you don't have to say a prayer or believe in God. Even my RE teacher didn't believe in God. We just had to have Mass and **** because after all it was a catholic school, but that doesn't mean the students are religious.
User avatar #265 to #122 - giblets (01/31/2013) [-]
The thing about Church of England schools is that children aren't forced to go to them, the parents can choose the school to send their child to.
However, I went to a primary school in the northwest of England, and we would occasionally say a prayer and sing hymns at Assembly, but I never felt like religion was forced onto me, it was just sort of there to give a structure to the schools moral values and a way to teach morals to children.

In fact when I decided that I was atheist I didn't actually think it that much of a big deal, and when I made it known I was encouraged to have my own belief.

But you're right with there not being a separation, especially with the Bishops that sit in the House Of Lords, which is wrong.

As of 2011, 59% of people labelled themselves as christian in the census for England. Even if it is a majority statistically from my perspective and experience here people that are true Christians and actually follow teachings of the bible is very, very low. I imagine a huge number of that 59% label themselves as christian because they were baptised, I was, but I certainly wouldn't label myself as christian. Not when the choice to be made a part of the church was made for me. Basically, I agree no one talks about it here, I love that :D but I would consider our nation as more atheist or at least moralistically separate from what religions really teach.

it is possible to be a Christian and not controlled. Im pretty sure that the majority of churches isnt trying to control people. What would be the payoff? The only churches i can think of that are controlling people is Jihad and all those terrorist groups which twist the word of the Qu'ran (sorry to anybody if i spelled that wrong) for their own dark purposes and so have corrupted peoples' faith and view of that religion, and those freaking radical Christian groups like Westboro Baptist and all those other hate group churches. And it's partially those peoples' fault too because they are the ones that allowed themselves to be controlled, instead of studying that religion for themselves a bit so that their views could not be twisted. Unfortunately, many people are just too lazy to read any sort of religious book. Most atheists dont really know anything about religion other than the basics and stuff they just picked up off of things people said, and they take it as truth. Anyways, atheists will most likely never rise up or gain control, and neither will Christians.

As a child I was prohibited to play with a lot of children from my neighborhood because my mother wasn't a Christian. I was on a Christian school for a small while and when my teacher heard that I didn't believe in God, she would gives me bad grades for the year I was on there for no reason. I was afraid to go outside too, because some teens were bullying me whenever they saw me because they had been told I am a devil's child for looking really pale (I was born a ginger but my hair color changed to blonde when I was a few months old), while I was only a 7 year old kid. Basically I got treated as if I was some evil abomination for not believing in God. Religion ruined a good part of my childhood. We eventually moved because the whole god damn neighborhood was insane and me, my mother and my father felt really intimidated because everyone was avoiding us.

Later, when I was 14, my parents divorced and my father got a new girlfriend. She was VERY religious and would use Christianity as an excuse to anything. Singing Christian songs every day in the kitchen. She eventually married my father, got 2 children and forced them to go to church with her. She was even putting pressure upon me and my dad to go to church.

Well, 2 years later, her mother and father came over from Nigeria and stayed at my father's home for like half a year. When I come over to visit for the first time, her father would ask me why I wasn't thankful for being made by God. I just replied that religion isn't my thing, to avoid trouble. However, they and me stepmother immediately overreacted, started throwing racial slurs at me all day long, completely ignored me, tried to keep me away from my half-brother and half-sister whenever possible. They would only talk to me if they needed something to be done that they were too lazy for to do at the moment. When I was at my half-sister's first birthday party, my stepmother's family came over and they would all stare at me as if I was their worst nightmare.

Hmm, hit the character limit. But yeah, I have literally zero positive experiences with Christianity and got treated like dirt. On top of that, my stepmother completely ****** over my father, got him into massive debt and now he's got huge financial problems. He wasted 5 years with that woman and all she did was pretend she was holier-than-thou, while she is being a leech, a parasite, sucking him dry. Now they have divorced and my father nearly ended up being homeless because of that bitch.

By the way, did I mention he had a woman before that which was also Christian and nearly got his head blown off by her brother because he said he was Gnostic?

So much disappointment, not at you, at the people you claim to have these experiences with. That is absolutely ******* shameful on their part and not the message that christianity teaches. But.... don't blame the religion, blame the people. Most of us are not like that.

Yeah, I really feel the love from the two people that wake me up several times a week knocking on my door to join their church because "eternal damnation awaits [me]" and they're "doing [me] a favor"

All they do is make me want to kill myself when I go to work tired.

hahahaha oh god thats funny!
I'm the only damn atheist in my entire school, and everyone found out by accident. not because i called them stupid faggots or something, but because i didn't want to pray in this church we visited on a field trip. almost EVERY ******* DAY....
i am tormented by these retards that out of no where decide to shove their religion down my ******* throat. Mind you that i never attacked them on the subject and only ever defended my "belief" when they started attacking ME.
otherwise i have nothing against ANY religion and have tons of friends that are orthodox, catholic, and etc.
So yeah. treated with so much love.

User avatar #12 to #11 - temporalguardian (01/31/2013) [-]

User avatar #13 to #12 - thanksgivingturkey (01/31/2013) [-]
South eastern USA. Bunch of prejudice religious ***** who can't seem to leave me alone about my "beliefs" when I leave them alone about theirs.
User avatar #14 to #13 - temporalguardian (01/31/2013) [-]
Yeah.. I live in Serbia. the guidance councilor or what ever told me to just try and ignore them, since they couldn't have their religion or pray and **** back when we were still yugoslavia. excuse me, BUT THEY WERENT EVEN BORN THEN. btw imagine how i felt when on that road trip when we went to the church, the teacher actually took their side in being a damn responsible adult and stopping the argument.

With love, like King Olaf of Norway did when he shoved christianity down people's throats. And if they didn't swallow it, he killed them.

except for the whole Spanish inquisition and shoving religion down our heretical throats
User avatar #109 to #3 - theexo (01/31/2013) [-]
that was catholicism
#135 to #109 - anon (01/31/2013) [-]
Is not Catholicism a subset of Christianity?
User avatar #80 to #3 - Grom (01/31/2013) [-]
oh and the christian crusades where they massacred millions of people who believed anything different. even some sects of their own religion.
#71 to #3 - anon (01/31/2013) [-]
how many people died during the Spanish Inquistion if i may ask?
#128 to #71 - classicvictory (01/31/2013) [-]
only about 2,300 people but many were tortured and they way the people were kill was horrific
User avatar #34 to #3 - benjaminbutton (01/31/2013) [-]
Crusades were far worst. While the inquisition was bad, it actually only affected roughly 10% of the population. Most of the inquisition took place within the cities, leaving the country side untouched, where in fact most of the country resided. So, no violence is good, but it affected less people than we think. We can thank propaganda for making us believe it was more widespread than it was.
#35 to #34 - classicvictory (01/31/2013) [-]
yes but the inquisition is best know as well as being horrifically brutal
User avatar #36 to #35 - benjaminbutton (01/31/2013) [-]
So was everything back then...witch hunts, wars, heresy in general. The torture they employed, and execution methods (quartering and breaking the wheel being some of the worst) were everywhere, not just the inquisition.
#37 to #36 - classicvictory (01/31/2013) [-]
isnt slaughtering the people fun?
#39 to #37 - benjaminbutton (01/31/2013) [-]
Of course. I didn't say it wasn't

Crusades *cough cough*
User avatar #17 to #5 - Maroon (01/31/2013) [-]
The crusades were more of a way to deal with all the knights in the kingdoms who didn't have a war to fight and were instead terrorizing the peasantry
#26 to #17 - anon (01/31/2013) [-]
Actually the crusades were a defensive war that was called by Urban II when the emperor of the Byzantine empire begged for assistance due to Islamic Forces encroaching on their land.
User avatar #295 to #26 - Maroon (01/31/2013) [-]
The Byzantine Empire fell because Constantinople (a Christian city) was sacked by crusaders who were let in. I vaguely recall the lesson saying that they were payed by Venice to do so so that Venice would have a trade monopoly on the Mediterranean.
