im an atheist and i dont believe in god. however im not saying religon is a bad thing. I think that every religon around the world is only lessons for people to take in and a guide to be a good and honest person. you dont have to believe in god to be religous nor do you have to be religous to be a good person. religon is only a guide not something you whorship or follow word for word. thats only my personal opinion tho. I hope i dont start a *********

The way I see it, whether or not there is a god doesn't concern me.   
   
I have things to accomplish, and the only tangible things that will help me in this world  are my hands and my mind. I'm not depending on any God's help, whether there is one or not.

I don't believe in god for that exact reason. We should concern ourselves more with the lives we have now then any potential life we could (and probably won't) have after we die.

Am I the only one that would like to believe in a god? I'd like the to think that there is an afterlife, even reincarnation or something. I just do not agree with the teachings of religion since they really do not apply to our modern society. Ah who am I kidding, I just wanna reincarnate into a ******* lion, king of the jungle, eating zebras and **** .

World War 1?
#34 to #10 - zxczxcv (09/07/2012) [-]
okay, what about the holocaust in nazi Germany, and the Great Purges and Ukraine starvation in Soviet Russia, Millions upon millions of people died, all in the name of 'The Mother Land' or some other form of this sentiment, Both believed their way was superior to all others, and both were explicitly atheist.

Wars are campaigns for power, they are never purely operations for moral reasons, the use of God to gain support of these wars is a total bastardization of what God stands for, but if it were not a successful tool for power, the orchestrators of war would simply find another.

tldr- God's name being used to support war ≠ God or belief in God causing war

Yep, all those wars were about religion.
#27 to #23 - nrobchavez (09/07/2012) [-]
the cool part is though, in every single war, leaders would use god to manipulate the people. "god is on our side"

then they would take the moral high ground which is essentially using religion cause in essence religion is just a set of morals... just conveyed in different ways. so when people are told that "x is/are bad and are immoral" they believe and are lead to believe that they do not hold the same correct values that they hold... usualy stemming from religion

i would say all sets of beliefs are a religion. mine remains strictly scientific; however, i would still call it a religion.
#30 to #27 - goldengohan (09/07/2012) [-]
"god is on our side" is just a morality booster for one's side of the war
what your talking about pertains to terrorism in the middle east and maybe a few other scenarios

I'm not here for your pinkies, but in all seriousness, religion is the root of all wars. Don't believe me? Here's a fact, The United States of America has been at war with Afghanistan for several years now, ever wondered why that is? The Afgans are doing what their god told them to do, so they figure that they have to be extremists (not all of them) and they would like to get into heaven with their 42 virgins. Also, the United States is only there for doing what THEIR god told them to do, which (in a nutshell) is keep the peace and praise... SO, they ARE fighting over religion, and religion IS the root of all wars. I'm not here to try and disprove your god if anyone here believes in him, and i am not criticizing anything, i am simply here to say, shut the **** up and grow the **** up. I was once told to not give my opinion but i really don't give 2 ***** any more, so get on the floor, everybody walk the dinosaur

No matter what people believe, you can always expect them to be an asshole about it. Republican or Democrat, conservative or liberal, theist or atheist.

User avatar #9 to #7 - DrGordon (09/07/2012) [-]
Unless there is some factual basis for something, you need not "believe" that it doesn't exist. You simply assume it doesn't because there is no rational reason for it. For example you do not believe that dragons don't exist you simply know they don't because you came to a logical conclusion.
#13 to #9 - alleksi (09/07/2012) [-]
yeah that kinda makes sense... I guess I'm just thinking the whole word in a wrong way... (belief is much "stronger" word in english, than it is in finnish)   
   
I guess I could try to make the generic counter argument by saying that we can't really prove that there is or that there isn't a god. we got no factual evidence for neither arguments.    
   
The thing with comparing dragons to gods is that dragons would be like every other animal/lizard/dinosaur so its simpler to prove that there in fact haven't been dragons.    
when talking about a concept as big as a god or deity or something, you can't prove that it doesn't exist just by proving that there aren't any signs of it, because the whole concept is incredibly massive.   
   
Obviously it feels so much more rational to say   
"Why would there be a god, when he have so many theories/facts to replace it with." but also as a rational human being you can't forget to think sometimes:   
"Why wouldn't there be a god? Its not like the existence of god would change how science and the universe works."   
   
The concept of god sounds

		sounds impossible.    
But that might just be because our concept of a god is much affected by religion and fairy tales, when god could be something much simpler.   
God could be a being that lives in more than only 3 dimensions (not counting time because time exists in all D's, it isn't the 4th dimension) for example.   
   
when talking about believing in god, people tend to get stuck in the subject of religion.   
believing in god doesn't make you part of any religion.   
   
although I think i'm more agnostic, than atheist...which is pretty much the "easy way out" with these things.  I don't think about the existence of god (almost) at all. but I don't close out the possibility.   
   
what point was I trying to make again?   
oh yeah   
no evidence for the existence of god. no evidence for god not existing   
it's up to you, to believe in god or not, either way I'd count it as a belief

User avatar #15 to #13 - DrGordon (09/07/2012) [-]
Well by that point of view everything you currently don't believe in and i do mean everything is a belief. Because there is no such thing as negative evidence

when it comes to the supernatural that is
User avatar #17 to #16 - alleksi (09/07/2012) [-]
well...isn't it?

its my belief that dragons haven't existed, although I have no evidence for either way

belief is something believed,
so if I believe that something isn't
I believe in the lack of something being,
so its a belief? right?

right?
User avatar #19 to #17 - DrGordon (09/07/2012) [-]
Belief implies blind faith and my athiesm and lack of belief in dragons, is not founded on faith but on logic therefore it is a conclusion, not a belief. Follow?
User avatar #21 to #19 - alleksi (09/07/2012) [-]
hmmm I guess I didn't completely understand what belief meant....In finnish belief is more close to "to think" or even "to assume"

its just that every definition of belief I look up is along the lines of.

-Mental acceptance of and conviction in the truth, actuality, or validity of something
-Something believed or accepted as true, especially a particular tenet or a body of tenets accepted by a group of persons.
-a principle, proposition, idea, etc., accepted as true
-opinion; conviction

that kind of contradict your idea that belief is "blind faith"

now there is this one:
-religious faith, which is what I think you're referring to.

but atheism and/or thinking that god exists arent religious believes, but still believes none the less, right?
User avatar #60 to #21 - DrGordon (09/08/2012) [-]
notice how in the definition it says nothing of evidence or logic and there is nothing about negative beliefs

-Mental acceptance of and conviction in the truth, actuality, or validity of something
-Something believed or accepted as true, especially a particular tenet or a body of tenets accepted by a group of persons.

you have accepted it as a fact/truth that god doesn't exist, right?
User avatar #62 to #61 - DrGordon (09/08/2012) [-]
Accepted is not the right word, i don't "believe" anything. I simply formulate hypotheses based on logic that are subject to change should evidence present itself.
User avatar #63 to #62 - alleksi (09/08/2012) [-]
so you're not atheist

you're agnostic.

well this was a pointless argument then...
