I'm not saying he's on their level, don't get me wrong, merely saying that using hatred to try to convince others to consider a different path will get you nowhere.

I just don't understand why people feel the need to so aggressively convince people that they're right. I don't think he does it out of a desire to spread truth and knowledge, he does it out of a desire to win. Letting people believe what they believe, so long as it harms nobody is okay, when you try to stop people from believing differently, it just makes you a bigot.

I think you ought to take a deep breath and watch a youtube clip or two with him, I really don't understand why you think he spreads it through hatred.

I think his state of mind is more set on bettering humanity.

Try and spot where he's actually hateful, I think you'll be watching for quite a while.

I'm no fan of the 16 year old internet atheist who spams, lol religion retarded. But I don't think Richard champions em, just because they champion him.

If a Catholic really thinks a magic word can do that, then you have all the right in the world to criticize them for that one. It's actually very ridiculous and not even part of their religion. Scientology is a money scam. What he's talking about is if you go up to somebody praying and shout "UR SO STUPID PRAYER DOZENT WORK U DUMB EVOLUTION FTW" and then run away and rant about it on Tumblr or some shit.

I agree completely, but that is a bit far from what the orignal post said, don't you agree?

It compared two decent aspects of what it means to be a rational individual, with being hateful in the name of religion.

It's like the pasta guy who recently said he doesn't want gay people to buy his pasta because he think's it's rotten for society.

You have to be able to shame these people, no matter their religious convictions, someone who truly wish equality and fair play must admit you can't hide behind a certain set of belief, as if it would grant you any immunity to criticism.

I think atheists can be just as bad as religious people, but I rarely hear an atheist hide behind a veil of tears and hurt feelings when they are attacked for those beliefs.

That is the difference we have to deal with, and that is what I don't like about this post's argumentation, shaming and mocking bad ideas and beliefs shouldn't be an atheist thing, it ought to be a thing that's inherent to any reasonable person.

I agree with your point, it's true, you don't need to be an atheist to shame people.

The thing is, this post is emphasizing on those harmful people within each group, and the stereotype of their "arguments" against others. For example: You don't have to be a Christian to be homophobic, racists, etc... but the stereotype of "bad Christians" are people that do this.

So as a comparison: Many of the ignorant and vocal "atheists" have the tendency to call religious people stupid since sometimes their beliefs don't seem empirical. For some reason these people believe that religion is a contradiction to science and that being religious is the same to not being a logical being, and usually their arguments are based on "I am logical, you are not" (obvious ad hominem on a straw man).

Also I think your definition of shaming is kind of off.

"So, it's only alright to be an atheist as long as you don't criticize religion for it's mistakes, and you don't claim religion to be false."

Yes.

No, because I feel the same about religion. Basically I think expressing your religious views in public should be punishable by flogging, nothing good ever comes of it.

Maybe because many atheists don't just criticize the beliefs of religious people. People like Dawkins are just assholes. Sure he's smart, but he's still a dick to everybody and thinks he's higher than a religious person because he's "not blinded by the lies of religion." There's a difference between discussion and attack, and when you attack somebody and their beliefs, that's when you become a dick. It's what separates a militant atheist from a regular atheist.

The same thing happens with religious people. Essentially, so long as you're not being a dick about things, and being okay with other people believing other things, it's okay.

That's what this post is about. If you think that attacking other people's beliefs is okay, then might I point you in the direction of the WBC and the Taliban? Because that's what they do, and it sure as hell isn't effective.

I don't have any special opinions on Richard Dawkins, but I have seen him in a couple of programs and interviews.

I spend my day of hangover with my catholic ex-girlfriend not long ago, watching a program with Dawkins on the stupidity of superstition, she spends every Sunday in church and she didn't think bad of him.

If you don't like Dawkins I couldn't care less, but personally I don't feel that description did him Justice. I think he's rational and honest, which is a big contrast to a lot of other people who debate for a specific religion. I admire peoples absolute search for truth, and not mixing emotion into the equation.

If you honestly think people like Dawkins are at the level of Taliban though, I strongly encourage you to do a bit of research and then a bit of meditation, because that statement is beyond standard idiocy, and I sincerely hope you are either serious about your account name or at least spoke without thinking it through.

Not caring about peoples feelings when searching for truth, is not the same as not caring for peoples feelings.

1.- You have the right to criticize, but without being an asshole. It's not the same to get into a debate with a religious person about who gets to be right than just showing up any time you see someone saying something about faith or destiny and yell "YOURE A FAG WHY DO YOU BELIEVE THAT ITS NOT REAL HEAVEN IS FALSE EVOLUTION RULEZ!!!!!!!!!".
2.- Most people don't think like this. Those who do, well, they deserve the hatred they're receiving.

I don't see the problem in saying a religion is silly, look at Scientology for example, I don't feel sorry for saying that religion is a joke, and most of other religions are as well.

When a catholic thinks saying a magic word will turn wine into the blood of God's jewish avatar. I will raise a mocking eyebrow.

Being able to shame religions for whatever its current atrocities, I feel is one of the strengths of modern society.

I'm sort of sickened anybody, in their full seriousness, would compare those two aspects, with being a racist, homophobic bigot.
