You don't have to push your beliefs on others you know

I apologize if you are offended.

I am not being sarcastic.

I don't think you actually know what missionaries do
User avatar #133 to #71 - iamchicken (03/01/2013) [-]
most missionaries show up to a place and invite them to join not "SUP HERE TAKE THIS LEARN JESUS NAOW." or at least that's what Quaker missionaries do.

Well, if you look at the original missionaries to the Americas and the ones in Africa and China, they are more or less saying
"You can keep living the way you are, starving, hungry and pitiful. Or we can feed you, clothe you and shelter you if you accept Christ"

I agree fully that's sort of what i was trying to portray but couldn't find the words.

We don't believe, we accept facts.

But there is still some measure of belief within atheism.
You believe that there is no God, or gods, because there is no evidence that there is one, just as Theists believe that there is a God(s) because there is no evidence saying he does not exist.
Inb4 "Science proves that God(s) doesn't exist"
Really it doesn't, it proves that the universe works a specific way, when really if you look at it with an open mind, there could be an intelligent creator behind everything that simply decided to have the world work the way it does and miracles are simply examples of when he broke those rules he set out.
If you have ever read the Demonata series by Darren Shan, i suggest it, it presents the idea of the "Kah-Gash" which is simply a force that runs the universe, the a program running a computer.
If you take the idea of a self-aware force that is judging everything and replace it with a semi-aware force that is running everything, the universe suddenly becomes a little more simple.

And btw your username doesn't fit your calm way of debating.

Let me repeat myself: I do not beliebe, accept fact. (It's kinda wrong to speak for every atheist.)
Thats means for me: I do not think there is a god but the possibility exists, thats the reason why I personally don't tell anyone that he/she is wrong believing in god. Just that I consider it more logical that the parts of our universe science can't explain yet, will be explained by science in the future. Rather than a allmighty creator hiding in those unexplained parts. If I would believe in the non-existence of god I would tell you he/she doesn't exist even if I can't prove it. But at the other hand I still don't believe in his/her existence. TL;DR: Until one side is proven right I will stick to the one that seems more logical to me but I won't force anyone to do that and I won't push it on others.

PS: Yes I have read Darren Shan and understood the reference.
PSS: About miracles, did you ever read "The Pillars of the Earth" from Ken Follet? Miracles where often just things sciene could not explain in the past.

Yet spew bullocks about how religion has dulled human advancement. You're no better than any missionary: A set of believes, political jargon, and stubbornness to see otherwise.
