Okay my question and this is open to everyone to give their answer but, why is it that if there is every something atheist, anti-religion and etc, the atheists preach more about religion then the religious?

You do realize this is only common on sites like 4chan, funnyjunk, reddit, etc. that attract the same types of people. Go to facebook and post a religious picture and have one atheist make a comment and the response is quite different.

Well I'm not exactly sure with your friends, but if I go on facebook and post a religious picture I'd get "Religious fag" "You're god isn't real" and etc from a fair few people, so it's not just on site like 4chan, reddit, funnyjuck and etc.

I see far more vocal theists than atheists on facebook, however atheists are starting to speak up more and that makes me very very happy.

The reason the internet is more flooded with atheists than off of it is because in normal everyday life (atleast in the US) you are bombarded with religion and it tries to control large aspects of your life. Not even mentioning the fact that the majority is ranging from slightly religious to very religious and speaking out against it in real life can harm your job, social life, etc. so people tend to not be as vocal.

They don't. The people who preach about religion just doesn't preach on the internet. Why does the internet atheists preach about religion?
I would guess it's because we want to remove religion and the internet is a good place to start.

But from going through the comments I see preaching from both sides, all over facebook I see half of my friends preach about how **** it is, I even get **** of atheists for being christian when I've even explained what my exact beliefs are. Yeah the internet would be a good place to start to "remove religion" but all I see when people try is atheists preaching.

Oh, well i have never met a whole lot of theists on the internet before.
Also, i guess that if two people are of similar opinion and interest, they can enjoy discussing the topic together, even tho they're both of same belief.

Like I said in one of my lower comments, I just find it pathetic how one side tries to **** on the other yet maybe if everyone stopped being ignorant dicks and leave the other side alone, everyone could get along better then they do now.

While you are right that the world would do alot better if theists/atheists stopped arguing and cooperated, the world would also do A LOT better without using time and money on religious affairs like church-taxes, construction of churches, masses etc.
Imagine if people worked instead of going to mass, and then gave the extra money they earned to poverty? It would be gone in an instant.
I don't mind regular religious people at all, but spending time and money going to mass, is pretty stupid.
To me, religion is a hobby. The church is a clubhouse.
I'm atheist, yet i have to pay taxes to the church until i turn 18. I'm basically funding someones freetime hobby, so they can waste their time.
Of course, time wasted doing something you like, is not wasted time. But make a free choice. If you like going to church and mass, go ahead, but don't take my money to build your clubhouse.

See I agree with where you are at all the way, like I lost my faith in being christian a fair bit because of personal reasons but I still say I am one if I am asked. Anyway to where I was getting at is, I find it stupid how people pay money to the church as an "offering" where like you said, it could go towards poverty. Atheists could stop preaching so much about it, and Christians can stop being dicks to others is what I think should happen.

There's still an ongoing problem of religion, so of course it's going to be talked about here. My theory on it is that the internet and theism don't mix well -- there is preaching from both sides, but the majority of people on the sites we tend to frequent are atheist.

The atheists need to know the **** so that they can ******** the **** that Christians talk about.

#723 to #718 - bados (11/29/2012) [-]
So in a way you're saying that atheists are just full of ******** in a way just as christians are?

Its how I see it.
#714 to #709 - ludislavonac (11/29/2012) [-]
good question really
#721 to #714 - bados (11/29/2012) [-]
Like I am Christian yet I still believe that evolution happened and all that, but it annoys me that half of my friends who are atheist preach much more about how stupid religion is and how it's all ******** and etc, then my friends who are christian.
User avatar #724 to #721 - ludislavonac (11/29/2012) [-]
Well I have friends both atheists and christians but we never actually discuss religion, but what you said seems to be constant way of behaving here on FJ
#728 to #724 - bados (11/29/2012) [-]
It is just stupid how both sides think they have superiority over the other when what if, now this is just something that could happen, what is we didn't give a **** about the other person and not post anything?
User avatar #732 to #728 - ludislavonac (11/29/2012) [-]
That would probably be the best, but you forget there is a **** ton of frustrated assholes here so the crappy discusions will continue at the same pace
#734 to #732 - bados (11/29/2012) [-]
I find it pathetic how ignorant they are trying to **** all over the other side.
