I just hate the hypocrisy that is at the core of Christian values. "If something good happens, God is great. If something bad happens, God is mysterious." And to think, that a being that you believe in, that created the universe, is personally invested into how you are doing at any given moment, carries such an arrogance to it. Just to think, right now there are millions of innocent children in Africa dying for no fault of their own. While their parents pray for their child to be spared, and they wont be answered. How anyone can logically believe in these things and wear as some sort of badge is defiant to the societal values of today, yet is justified under the context of religion. Not to mention, the millions who die every year who aren't Christian, who will go to said hell because they were born into the wrong religion by no fault of their own. Or we could go farther, and include the millions of infants who are in hell because they died before they were able to be baptized.
Regardless of all that I previously stated, there's more. Why is God considered an explanation for anything? It's not, it's a shrug of the shoulders, an "I dunno" dressed up in spirituality and ritual. If someone credits something to God, generally what it means is that they haven't a clue, so they're attributing it to an unreachable, unknowable sky fairy. Ask for an explanation of where this being came from, and odds are you'll get a vague, pseudo-philosophical reply about having always existed, or being outside nature. This concept goes well with that I stated in my first sentence. And all of these things, of course, explain nothing.
Lastly, I'll just give you some numbers, that will hopefully blow your mind and make you think about our existence. It's estimated that there are between 15 billion-30 billion planets in our single galaxy, and about 100 billion galaxies in the universe.

I will continue....

Let me guess, you just found your anti-theism?

It sure was some wall of text, but I'd feel bad if I didn't read it ;)

I agree completely and none of this is new to me, it's nice to see someone who actually got it... It's easy to get extremely angry when you look at the reasoning, what I feel helped me a bit was to understand psychology better and try and understand humans, social patterns etc.

Once you understand the power of evolution and combine it with the talks of Daniel Dennet and Richard Dawkins, religious people will make more sense even though religion in itself will be as stupefyingly illogical and unreasonable as always.

But just because you can understand and sympathize with their belief, it's still not the truth and as any person of integrity would, we should keep doing our best to rid the world of that which lie and corrupt... Aka, institutionalized religion.
