Most of the time very true, but that might have something to do with the fact that atheists (especially young atheists) are usually social outcasts, which explains why alot of them are angry and militant.

I also think that most atheists consider themselves more liberal and leftwing, so it's easier to reject social norms that they perceive as belonging to "da system".

Basically a combination of cultural marxism and just being nerds.

After all, a person who has been bullied is much more likely to abandon god than somebody who hasn't.

What bullshit, I'm not more or less social than average, and I just belive in God because
1. I wasn't educated with a strong idea of god, so I don't see why I must be more inclined to believe in him than Vishnu.
2. Most beliviers said it's a question of faith, and I don't have this faith.
3. I don't have real reasons to believes in him for the moment.

Except that, I'm not different from you.

"I have no confidence and I can't ever get girls because of that, so I'm going to stop trying to get girls because it's all their fault they can't realize what a hunky, intelligent catch I am. So instead of thinking I'm the problem and improving myself I'm just going to give up and be alone and a virgin my whole life, acting like I don't care yet fantasizing about these women that ill always really want to be with but am too much of a bitch to attempt to get."

#90537 - theism ONLINE (10/23/2014) [-]
I'd say the reason I'm an atheist is because, when I think about the universe, its size, its scope and its complexity, no religion gets it right. Most religions only talk about Earth, and something else. No religion ever got it right that stars are massive fusion reactors. No religion got it right that all matter was forged, from one element to another in the heart of these reactors. No religion got it right that around these stars, you could find a near infinite number of planets. I would say religion dreamed small in comparison to what's out there.

Additionally, why did the god of each religion only choose to truly reveal himself to one group of people? Why did Allah only send his message to Muhammed? Before that, why was Jesus the only son of god sent to Earth? Why was Buddha the only man to reach enlightenment? No religion properly accounts for the existence of other religions.
User avatar #90644 to #90537 - teoragnar (10/23/2014) [-]
That's simply because religion doesn't focuses on such things, it focuses on man. Not in a mental or biological way but about his relation to transcendence (beyond; God/deites/entities/spirits/ancestor) and to immanence (secular (in this context); the other humans).
Also you're forgetting the animalistic babylonians which practiced cosmology for religious purposes
#90647 to #90644 - theism ONLINE (10/24/2014) [-]
Religion purports to have an understanding of the origin of the universe, the religious account conflicts with the scientific one.
User avatar #90698 to #90647 - teoragnar (10/24/2014) [-]
Do I really have to explain what a myth is and what its purpose is?
Myths not factual and shouldn't be taken literally due to their legendary nature, they were never supposed to be taken that way but describe those relations I was taking about.
Just take in mind that for example there are TWO creation accounts in the bible, the first created around 700 bc and the second one around 500bc
#90701 to #90698 - theism ONLINE (10/24/2014) [-]
So which religious accounts are mythical and which are factual?
User avatar #90704 to #90701 - teoragnar (10/24/2014) [-]
Good question. Since I'm not familiar with a lot of myths, I'll take the bible as example.
On the bible: The special thing about the bible is that it isn't a book, it's a collection of scripture, poems, prayers, biographies, tales and songs.
It isn't very easy to declare what's fictional and what's historical, saying it's all fictional would be wrong since the things the scripture mentions did certainly exist (cities, ancient peoples, empires(hittite, egyptians) etc), saying it's all historical would be wrong since it does contains impossible stories (for example genesis creation stories).
Since you can't declare it all to be ficitional/historical all at once you would have to examine every story in particular.
Let's take the 2 genesis creation accounts as example.
We have two stories, (one 200 years older than the other one) that are different, this difference is important since it also differs therefore in meaning (as little example, the first one says man and woman are created equal, while the second says the man has a higher position than the woman because he was created before her).
We can say that they are in fact myths because they're 2 stories trying to describe the same event by telling 2 fundamentaly different tales converting 2 fundamentaly different messages and are in view of the rest of genesis much younger while being literally the first chapter.
For the historicality, big bang and evolution, I'm pretty sure I don't have to say much more.
#90705 to #90704 - theism ONLINE (10/24/2014) [-]
So is your criteria for what is mythological only things that are contradicted within the account?
User avatar #90717 to #90705 - teoragnar (10/25/2014) [-]
Only for the genesis creation account, as I said, you would have to examine every story in particular since all stories differ.
#90720 to #90717 - theism ONLINE (10/25/2014) [-]
Would it be fair to suggest that all supernatural accounts are mythological or allegorical?
User avatar #90724 to #90720 - teoragnar (10/25/2014) [-]
I wouldn't say so, but it is a problematic, because we have both actual historical events and ,well, fictional parables and myths.
I would say though that an account shouldn't necessarly be considered ficitonal only because parts of have something unnatural or a miracle in it (keep in mind that a miracle in hebrew only means something that you are "wondering about" but not necessarly something that breaks physical laws).
#90725 to #90724 - theism ONLINE (10/25/2014) [-]
I'm not saying the whole thing is myth, but what should differentiate the supernatural accounts in the bible from the supernatural accounts of other religions?
User avatar #90835 to #90725 - teoragnar (10/27/2014) [-]
Meaning mostly, other religions have other messages.
#90839 to #90835 - theism ONLINE (10/27/2014) [-]
But what makes one more legitimate than the rest?
#90589 to #90537 - dehumanizer (10/23/2014) [-]
Because all the star knowlage you talked about is pritty much irrelevant to us and it was even more irrelevant 2k years ago.

As for the diffrent religions, well they are all diffrent attempts of mankind's diffrent cultures to reconnect with the devine.
#90610 to #90589 - theism ONLINE (10/23/2014) [-]
It's knowledge about how the universe came to be. Every religion has an origin story. Did the Sumerians need to know Enki masturbated to create the Tigris and Euphrates rivers? Did the greeks need to know Kronos chopped the sky into pieces and threw it into the ocean? Why do the origin stories so vastly differ from what we know to be true?

Then why are they so different? The greek belief was vastly different from the Hindu belief was vastly different from the Hebrew belief. Why would there not be more similarities? Why did god send one messiah? Why did no one achieve Nirvanna before Buddha? Why was Abraham the only man given the covenant?
#90611 to #90610 - dehumanizer (10/23/2014) [-]
But that knowlage is as useful as if you knew how many peanuts i had in my pocket.

Because diffrent tribes developed difrently.
#90614 to #90611 - theism ONLINE (10/23/2014) [-]
But they have origin stories, why do the stories differ so greatly from what we know to be true? Why do they say things like man was made from dust or clay when we know that water and carbon are the key components of life? Why do they give an answer that isn't correct?

But why so different? If there was a god or gods, wouldn't the different tribes at least agree on the number? The nature? The basic desires? Shouldn't every religion at least preach some of the same basic commandments?
#90615 to #90614 - dehumanizer (10/23/2014) [-]
But anon we are made from dust, stardust from le big bang :^)

There are alot of similarities too.
#90617 to #90615 - theism ONLINE (10/23/2014) [-]
To call it dust is a misnomer.

But there are so many core differences. Abrahamic faiths believe in a single all powerful god. Hidus believe is a pantheon that are all representations of one. The Egyptians and Greeks believed in pantheons of distinct gods. The key tenets differ, Christianity and Islam are proselytizing religions, they want more followers. Buddhism Hinduism and Judaism don't care about attracting followers.

#90619 to #90618 - theism ONLINE (10/23/2014) [-]
They were referring to dust of the Earth.

If there was a true religion, why would it not be sufficiently reflected in the religions we see today?
#90620 to #90619 - dehumanizer (10/23/2014) [-]
how do you know -.-


Because freedom of choice.
#90622 to #90620 - theism ONLINE (10/23/2014) [-]
Because they didn't know about supernovas, the big bang and nuclear fusion. And I'm fairly certain their word for stardust wouldn't be the same as their word for dust.

How does freedom of choice lead to the vast array of different religions we've seen today? And if each one was a corruption of a true religion, wouldn't religions get more different and more divided over time, rather than more similar like we see actually happen?
#90623 to #90622 - dehumanizer (10/23/2014) [-]

#90624 to #90623 - theism ONLINE (10/23/2014) [-]
Stardust is a word that derived from dust not the other way around.

Now you're just saying cliches.
#90625 to #90624 - dehumanizer (10/23/2014) [-]
in english, because people today spoke the same way when they built the pyramids

think about it
#90627 to #90625 - theism ONLINE (10/23/2014) [-]
The translation came out as dust, not stardust. If you're a linguist I'd love you to explain why in Hebrew the two were the same. While you're at it, why did the greeks think we were made of clay and certain Native American tribes corn.

I did, it doesn't explain how there is one true religion all the others derived from.
#90628 to #90627 - dehumanizer (10/23/2014) [-]
Because people are diffrent.

It does because all of them try to reach to the same goal but only one of them works.
#90631 to #90628 - theism ONLINE (10/23/2014) [-]
You didn't answer the question.

"All roads lead to rome" in the context of religion would imply that all religions lead to the same outcome.

1- my religion contains clues about what is going in the universe or stars or in the womb of mother or anything. let us talk about the space as an example.
The Expansion of the Universe : "And it is We who have constructed the heaven with might, and verily, it is We who are steadily expanding it."(The Qur'an, 51:47)
The Splitting Asunder of "The Heavens and The Earth": "Do not the Unbelievers see that the heavens and the earth were joined together (as one unit of creation), before We clove them asunder, and We made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe?" (The Qur'an, 21:30)
Orbits : "It is He Who created the night and the day, and the sun and the moon. They swim along, each in an orbit. " (The Qur'an, 21:33) It is mentioned in another verse, too, that the Sun is not static but moves in a definite orbit: "And the sun runs to its resting place. That is the decree of the Almighty, the All-Knowing. " (The Qur'an, 37:38) That the entire universe is full of paths and orbits such as this one, is written in the Qur'an as follows:"By the sky full of paths and orbits." (The Qur'an, 51:7)

and there are more to say. now atheists will ask: BUT WHY GOD DIDNT SAY EXACTLY HOW DOES ALL THOSE THINGS WORK!!!!111111. because this book is an encyclopedia with explanation of everything. not even the water of the sea can help to finish this book if it will explain anything from A to Z. it will give us clues and it is for us to discover how those things work.

2-it is amazing you even talk about my religion and you dont know what does it say exactly. like a blind man talking about something he saw (which he never saw because he could not see). Jesus (Isa) in Islam is not the son of god and is only a prophet and messenger like Muhammad and Moses (Mosa) and David (Dawood) and Elijah (Elyas) etc.. god dont have a son he never beget or begot. now how to know what is the true message from other religion, according to what they have sent and we compare it to other religions.
#90612 to #90539 - theism ONLINE (10/23/2014) [-]
Yes but there is no mention of the scale of the universe. Of other worlds. No mention the earth isn't the only body orbiting the sun. No mention that the source of all life on Earth is the nuclear fusion in the sun, and that same process is how all matter achieved it's current form. Your interpretations only clearly fit the scientific explanation after we know it, but without that knowledge there's countless other interpretations.

I didn't mean Jesus was the messiah in Islam. My question was for Christians, why was Jesus the only son of god sent down? For Muslims, why was Muhammed the only profit god sent to the world of the faith of Islam.
User avatar #90616 to #90612 - syrianassassin ONLINE (10/23/2014) [-]
the quran is not an encyclopedia of everything. it is a book to give clues about something. and a way to guide us for the other immortal life and successful mortal life.
if everything is going to be said by god then what we will discover?

about the scale i said the universe is expanding and brought you the verse. from 1400 years till now it will be expanded more than the time it came.

of other world? you never heard of world of Aljinn. or the barzakhey life. or hell or heavens??
and i said the sourc eof all life is water.
That the entire universe is full of paths and orbits such as this one, is written in the Qur'an as follows:"By the sky full of paths and orbits." (The Qur'an, 51:7) i just said that. and look you did never read my comment

and about this why was Muhammad the only profit god sent to the world of the faith of Islam.

ehem. in islam every profit from adam to muhammad is a muslim. muslim mean a submission to god. and of course everyone of them submitted to god

All the interpretations you've provided only fit the scientific explanation loosely. The more likely interpretation had nothing to do with the reality. What the people of the day took away from it was nothing like the actual scientific explanation or they would have believed the scientific explanation.

The message muhammed spread was fundamentally different from what the other profits spread, and why did god only send his word to this one part of the world? Why were there no profits of Islam in china, japan, europe, or the americas?

like i said this is not an encyclopedia of explain everything. and if god want to talk about everything the ink of the sea water will end and there will be more to say. he give clues with deep understanding and it is up to us to discover how they work.

2-The message muhammed spread was fundamentally different from what the other profits spread, and why did god only send his word to this one part of the world? Why were there no profits of Islam in china, japan, europe, or the americas?

in the beginning you are so wrong and proof your ignorance. Muslims believe in all Rusul (Messengers) that Allah (God) had sent for the guidance of mankind. These Rusul (Messengers) were sent to different places at different times. All of these Rusul (Messengers) had brought the same Message of Allah (God).
Each Rasul (Messenger) faithfully delivered the Message of Allah (God) to his people and presented a perfect way of life as example. These Rusul (Messengers) invited people to the path of Allah (God).
People altered and modified the Messages of Allah (God) for their own benefits and whenever it happened, Allah (God) sent His Message over through another Rasul (Messenger).

All Rusul (Messengers) performed the same job of delivering Messages of Allah (God) to mankind. Muslims respect all Rusul (Messengers) of Allah (God) equally and do not consider any Rasul (Messenger) better or superior than others. Muslims also believe that all Rusul (Messengers) were normal human beings, who were picked-up by Allah (God) at various ages of their lives for this responsibility. Allah (God) gave special powers of performing miracles to some of His Rusul (Messengers).

3- islam is sent for the whole world and not only for the arabs. but it is the job of us to deliver it to the whole world.

Say, [O Muhammad], “O mankind, indeed I am the Messenger of Allah to you all, [from Him] to whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. There is no deity except Him; He gives life and causes death.” So believe in Allah and His Messenger, the unlettered prophet, who believes in Allah and His words, and follow him that you may be guided. Qur’an 7:158

But why is the story the Quran tells of the origin of the universe fundamentally different from the one we know to be true?

Then why did the faith of Islam not exist until 700 CE? Why did Islam only exist in one part of the world for hundreds of years?

The Quran presents a story for the origin of the universe, I imagine it's fairly similar to the story presented in genesis, this is vastly different from what we know to have happened.

The arabs weren't primitive violent savages like the article suggests. There had been civilizations in that region longer than recorded history. Sumeria was in modern day Iraq, Persia Iran. And presents the case for why Muhammad was sent to that region, but not why similar prophets weren't sent elsewhere, or why the religion never took hold elsewhere until Muhammad.

1- when you say this bring me the verses

2- all Abrahamic religions appeared in middle east. and ibrahim PBUH is the first arab
#90648 to #90642 - theism ONLINE (10/24/2014) [-]
I actually don't know. I might be mistaken, does the Quran contain an origin story?

But why only the middle east?

Islam's view is that God does not give preference of proximity to Him to anyone based on either of these: geographical situation, skin colour, blood descent, gender, affiliation to one of his Prophets, social status, etc. In the eyes of God human beings are born equal like the teeth of a comb. What will distinguish them is their obedience to His commands and their good deeds.
God did not create a community without sending a Prophet to them from their community that could speak their own language and teach them how to elevate themselves and become better than angels (who do not have free will). He sent thousands of prophets, Quran only mentions the names of some of them.

"To every people (was sent) a messenger: when their messenger comes (before them), the matter will be judged between them with justice, and they will not be wronged." Quran 10:47

"We sent not a messenger except (to teach) in the language of his (own) people, in order to make (things) clear to them. Now God leaves straying those whom He pleases and guides whom He pleases: and He is exalted in power, full of wisdom" Quran 14:4

"And if they reject thee, so did their predecessors, to whom came their messengers with clear signs, Books of Dark Prophecies, and the Book of Enlightenment." Quran 35: 25

Some Prophets had a book (scripture), some did not: for example, Abraham, received the Scrolls of Abraham, Moses the Torah, David the Psalms, Jesus the Gospels and Muhammad the Quran

this is a correction for some things i mistakenly typed:

because this book is not an encyclopedia with explanation of everything. not even the water of the sea can help to finish this book if it will explain anything from A to Z. it will give us clues and it is for us to discover how those things work.

When you see contention amongst your enemies, go and sit at ease with your friends; but when you see them of one mind, string your bow, and place stones upon the ramparts.
