- I think you'll find we all hate the French
Swell with haggis
- Actually quite a few people wear atheist symbols, and the fish…
My experience has been very different to yours despite also living in the UK. I don't know where you live where talking about Jesus is a "taboo" subject.
This is the "official" symbol of Atheism...I just now found it. I've never seen anyone wearing this on a neck-lass, on a car, or a shirt. Not looking to discredit your whole argument, just that one part a the begining
Yea but try to talk to a friend and say something -pro religion- related and all the atheist will stand up and talk about how they're enlightened and we are ignorant.
However I am agnostic so I do what I am supposed to do - idgaf
Agnosticism is considered preferable to atheism on this site now, purely because a few assholes make a bad example.
That's like all the good feminists packing up their shit and giving up because of the radical Tumblr-tier ones.
If you really think that all or most or even 25% of atheists will call religious people unenlightened then I'm curious as to where you live, because almost every one of my friends is agnostic or atheist and none of them look down on any religion. Maybe it's a more severe problem in some parts of the world than where I am?
Those guys aren't assholes because they're atheist; they're assholes because they're assholes.
Agnosticism is considered preferable to atheism on this site purely because /r/atheism has managed to produce enough cringe inducing content to convert half the internet to Christianity.
My point exactly. But I bet a lot of Muslims aren't exactly happy with the way people think of them based on Charlie Hebdo and all the ISIS executions. It doesn't make the worldview any more accurate, but yeah, the discrimination can send people running.
How can someone respect a religion if their own belief wants to end it ?
Who the fuck told you that atheists want to end religion?
Theists believe in a god. Polytheists believe in many gods. Atheists believe in no god.
Theisms are categories. It's that simple.
Let's not play dumb. You know that most atheists believe on ending all religion in the world, at least pseudo-atheists do.. and guess what? They're the majority.
Christians believe - so they want the world to have their faith too
Atheists don't believe - so they want the world to see through their eyes
However there's the small amount that doesn't do what's above. That goes to religious people and Christians. I really don't care if you're atheist or religion. I just don't like when people say Christians force things upon you.. when most of the times there's a atheist trying to argument down faith.
Literally none of the non-religious people I know could give even the tiniest shit about what anyone else believes. Literally 100% of them, myself included, simply do not care, with the exception of their views on extremists.
So you can accuse me of playing dumb, but to me that just makes it look as if you're full of shit and playing the victim -
, as I originally suggested, maybe its a geographical thing, and you just happen to live around people who are more extreme about it.
But let me tell you this, and I promise it's true. If you really believe that the majority of atheists, the world over, want to end or suppress religion, then you're simply, plainly, and irrefutably wrong. There are literally
of people on this very site who stand in plain contradiction to what you'd have us believe.
I am not playing victim.. and victim of what ? Atheists aren't attacking me I am not religious. No, there aren't extreme atheists here.. and no I don't know all the atheists.
However the ones that I have seen in videos/websites/tv are mostly assholes.. yes being a asshole doesn't have anything to do with atheism but guess what it became ingrained inside the head of many people that it was correlated.
I will say it again though.. "I really don't care if you're atheist or religious. I just don't like when people say Christians force things upon you.. when most of the times there's a atheist trying to argument down faith."
You really think you can judge the atheist population of earth by the ones who forward themselves on public media?
That's like judging Islam by ISIS or Christianity by the Westboro Baptist Church. No wonder you're fucking deluded, holy shit.
ISIS kills people..Atheist look down on religious people. Tell me what's more believable that most Muslims are murderers or that most atheists are assholes. You're looking for extremes points to prove your argument.
Don't forget that people on the internet also exist in real life.
Then again I am allowed to think of a certain group as I want and to me most atheists are fedora warriors.
You need to use your brain more and your mouth less. I want to read this, and take down the logic-proof barrier that's sitting in front of your head for a minute. Let it sink in, and try your very hardest not to get confused and accidentally think I'm giving you cupcake recipes or something.
ISIS are killers. They hate everyone who doesn't follow their beliefs, and they want to convert the whole world to follow their leaders.
They represent less than quarter of a percent of all Muslims.
The Westboro Baptist Church believe and enforce extremist views. They believe that their word represents the true word of God, and they make no secret of it. They insult, belittle and cast aside others because they're so stupid they think that God wants them to.
They are one church. They have some followers, but at most, their numbers won't come above a few thousand people across the USA, and very likely nowhere outside of it.
There are an estimated
Christians in the world.
Now, please pay attention to this part, because this part seems to be where your train of thought suddenly became a cabbage last time.
The atheist people you're talking about are the atheist equivalent of ISIS or the WBC. There are
of them, but they shout the loudest and beg for the most attention. They are, again, an absolutely tiny proportion of atheists as a whole, as an entity.
It's fact, you ignoramus: Saying all atheists are anti-religious and want to end religion is like saying that all Muslims are terrorists and murderers and want to enforce Sharia on the entire planet. It's ignorant, it's stupid, it's prejudiced and it's completely and utterly
I will try that.. how much time in the oven ?
calling me a ignorant, clamming hes smarter. I won't sleep tonight thanks to you.
Given that most people become dimmer after lack of sleep or after being baked at 200 for an hour, perhaps it'll improve your IQ, given that you've already proven how backwards you are in every other aspect.
Oh god boasting about IQ now. You showed me. Get a pair balls and a life on the way.
“People who boast about their I.Q. are losers.” - robot voice man
So not only do you not understand your own discrimination, but you also fail to understand what boasting is.
I wouldn't brag about driving a bog-standard Ford Escort to a man driving a smoke-spewing, 30-year old Italian car, so why would I boast about my completely average IQ?
But you still need to imply that yours is better than mine. Yes that is boasting "improve your IQ" indirectly implies that yours better.
What does a car have anything to do with IQ ? You're trying to sound superior on the internet to a guy you don't even know.. you won't win shit. I have my opinion you have yours but you still insist in calling me ignorant when I didn't even insult you. Get a hold of your life.
Ignorance =/= insulting
Boasting =/= superiority
I'm average, you're... well you're quite dim, if this conversation's anything to go by. I'm sorry, I'm not trying to insult you so much as just tell you. Man, this entire conversation has just been you missing points and lying. That's not boasting, that's just telling you the unfortunate truth.
Also, you have the right to whatever opinion you like, but opinions aren't rights themselves. If you can't back it up, you have to take criticism for it. Hell, if you're even having to back it up, you're already in trouble.
I'm sorry if I wasn't exactly nice about it, but I think you've acted completely indignantly. You've made claims that don't make sense and as far as I can tell, being as reasonable as I can be, I think you have failed to justify them.
Justify that a good amount of atheists look down on religious people ? Do you really think only few people agree with it ?
Have you ever experienced the world ? Man I really don't care.. you should really get a hold of yourself. Honestly this talk only made me laugh seeing you go so serious about it and insulting me on the way which makes it even more funny.
Then again how can I argue with a stereotype of an atheist.
I find it impossible to be insulted by someone who believes in the atheist Youtube boogeymen, but bless you for trying so hard.
Honestly, you may as well be telling me you're scared of Santa Claus and calling me an elf because I don't agree with your delusions.
And let's not forget that the first person to act unreasonably in this conversation wasn't myself, but you. I'm many things, my friend, but it's gonna take some seriously stupid decisions before I ever believe that you have got shit on me.
Never seen a single one to be enough to bother me.
Looking at someone wearing a cross bothers you ? What the fuck happened in your life ?
I was raped by a priest.
