welp

Not all religion is evil or even focused on worshiping gods. I'm not religious myself but I have respect for many of the different philosophies out there, and sure, I do hate a few, but I'm not as spiteful as other atheists seem to be towards all religion. Frankly, I think it's pretty ignorant.

Just a few religions I think have pretty cool philosophies and cultural value.

I only think people would hate a religion if it hurts people, even though i don't think much people hate religion.    
I think most people feel the same. Like, i don't believe in Santa Claus, but i don't hate him or the people who believe in him.

People don't like all religion as a principle, since religion has caused the most amounts of deaths ever I think this is a valid stance.

Are you the same kind of person that thinks if someone stubs their toe in church it's religion's fault, but the french revolution, stalin, and pol pot murdering millions has nothing to do with atheism?

To respond to a few quotes I've seen in the past few religious threads

"Christianity hasn't killed anyone in like 1000 years."

I honestly don't care. If someone doesn't like me, fine. I don't like them. But if they get up in my **** I'm going to get in there **** too.

A religion post that doesn't include religion bashing?
It's like getting a $20 for just being a nice guy.

Exactly, but friendly debates are alright. Like my how my atheist friend and myself (Agnostic) yell at each other in the name of our beliefs.

Religion tend to enforce itself upon the other rather than the other way around.

wait, are you serious? Thats like saying "I like hamburgers over video games because it satisfies my hunger"

The two cant be compared in the same category. Science is there to help understand the universe, and can explain how things work (which does explain many inventions) while religion is a thing people turn to for faith and to feel like someone is watching over them.

Except then you look at history and see that it's quite reasonable that people are outraged, because religions that are hated are 99.999% of the time the very old non-eastern primitive thinking outdated ones, and if you look at the core doctrines and the first societies that adopted the old ones, you realize it's meant to be exactly how the fundamentalists behave, and not meant to change.

No hate against religion has ever been so severe as religious hate. Religion takes advantage of the not staying within the bounds of reason, and once you're past that point by doctrine, it's of course going to have continually a more harmful effect than if you were to throw out the outdated things. To date, that would be things like Eastern religious sorts of things like Taoism, nature religion like Shinto, basically ones that just focus on spirituality, and not so much an attempt of making up morals and throwing claims around.

If there is a large group of people who have extremist views, come to other countries and expect those countries to bend to their culture, then I will not tolerate those people.

Preaching against intolerance is itself a form of intolerance.

Unless you're hating on a Satanist, in which case keep bashing them because they're retards.

Religion that spreads hate and intolerance is the only religion I see a reason not to tolerate. You can believe what you want, but there's no reason to treat others badly because of it
