Look at this.

This is an actual atheist post. It's not hateful and arrogant like other "atheist"Anti-religious posts. He's simply making a statement about his belief system without being an obnoxious asshat.

And in the comments, nobody is wastin' nobody.

Can you dig it?

Good show, op.

Never read any of his books, but watched a program he did for the BBC about people choosing to go through with euthanasia for my Religious Studies course I did for my A-Levels.
Fair play to him for looking at some of the **** people go through and how they feel they will end up being a burden on their loved ones. Tis a shame anyone would feel that way, and that he's got Alzheimer's as well.

I'd give a reply to what they stated, debate their nonsense, and not cry about it.

God doesn't exist -> lol stop pushing your beliefs on me :,(

Real mature, why not just say why you think people are wrong instead, there isn't that big of a flame war going on, most people who take each other somewhat seriously doesn't rage on people for having a set of beliefs.

If you think you've got it right and god is like, uber real and we are all fools... Why do you want the discussion buried... If you honestly thought you were right, you'd grab the opportunity to win people over with words whenever the chance was.

Point taken.

But tbh, I think a lot of atheists find the bible rather comical, granted, there is a lot of cheering posts that doesn't really belong here, and I think a substantial amount of atheists as Christians alike would rather be without them.

I'm merely pointing out, ''stop showing your beliefs down my throat'' is an absurdly dishonest and cowardly way to try and put together an argument.

It's simply wrong when you say.

_ atheists are the first ones to complain about "pushing your beliefs" on others._

I think you've mistaken this sentence with ''please stop indoctrinating your children with threats of hellfire and candy in heaven''.

It's not really the same is it?

wait, seriously? Still that argument? YOU are the one making the claim (theists i mean) that God exists, it's up to YOU to convince us that God exists, and extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof, so far I haven't seen any.

Saying that we can't DISPROVE God is the same as saying you can't DISPROVE dragons.

That you only have to bash the concept of God that developed when judaism evolved and spread through nations. When you say that Primum Movens doesn't exist, or is impossible, or we don't need it... It's worse.

You do know that Aristotle was wrong on many, many things, so I'd hesitate before basing my argument on one of his thesis.

For instance, he thought that the earth was the center of the universe and that the sun turned around it, which we later found out to be false (don't try and say the opposite, even the church made recent appologies to Galileo for what they did because they aknowledged he was right).

You can just piss off with that kind of bull.

It's kinda sad that we as a species in modern days still believe in some supreme deity that can travel across the cold void of space without any oxygen, nutrient or heat, that this deity is the only of it's species and that he created an entire new species from nothing in his own image.

I have never seen any bloody evidence of this deity's exsistance except that of which MAN made in his honor, we as a species who rose from the animal kingdom to become the supreme species of earth, who have mastered realms beyond our own, we're so damn intelligent that in such a world we invented boredom and have devoted so much just to keeping ourselves entertained through our lifespan.

I have seen many reasons to believe in mankind, but no reasons nor evidence to support the telepathical link to this space deity that abandonned us in the craddle thousands of years ago.

For the first time in the history of America atheists have a voice and sadly it's only online. What makes me angry is that for only a couple of years now has atheism gained alot of support albeit only online and then religious find what we are saying, but instead of leaving us alone they call us out and say were pushing our beliefs on people.

You are the one reading and posting a comment on a post about atheism, this post was not forced upon you.

Also I'm not saying either atheism or theism is right or one group pushes their belief on others more but please don't make a post on content in an atheist channel that you found and then say it's being forced upon you.

yes it is, technically he's been Knighted so it should be "Sir Terry Pratchett"
This guys' writting is my absolute favorite.
Small Gods is probably one of my top 3 favorite books.
Also make sure to read "Mort" and look up "Good Omens"
(he co wrote in good omens, but the book is insanely great and it has a lot of feel from Terry Pratchett's writting style)

Yes he is. If you want more of his god based Discworld books you should try reading The Last Hero or Thief of Time. Neither of these go into as much depth as Small Gods but they are just as good, if not better, and explore other religions (such as the History Monks from Oi-Dong monastery being loosely based on Buddhist teachings and the Gods of Dunmanifestin being based on the Greek gods on Mount Olympus).
