  • You are avoiding the topic. You fail to understand that atheists don't believe in a god, because evidence i.e. science is just continuing to prove otherwise. But the key thing that all atheists have in common, besides the disbelief in God is that we don't waste our time trying to explain things that are unknown. We leave unknown as it is...unknown. We do not try to attach some non fact based answer to something we don't have the answer to. Religious zealots can't seem to get this part, so their More..

  • Personally, I've always thought religious people are dumber than fuck.

    It is kind of self evident.

  • I think that the most despised people are the wafflers or the agnostics. An agnostic is just a nervous atheist! Have the fortitude to find a position and be strong!

  • Religion is for those who need something to believe in. The ones that need to think they are part of some larger divine plan, instead of just being responsible for their own fate.

    I think it definitely is a result of lack of resources and education.

  • Well, let's put it this way. Some will, at the end of their life, or at the end of "the world" will be happy they thought or believed the correct way. Some won't, right? In the athiest mind, the believer will be a tad bit disappointed when the religeous person finds out there is no God. But hang on, no......when you're dead, you're dead.....not possible to be dissapointed. In the religious persons mind, the athiest will be a tad bit disappointed when he finds out there IS a God. A More..

      you're ignoring the point. Religion holds back human progress and is the single largest source of human misery. It's not as simple as people's individual beliefs. If that's as far as it went, fine, but it's not. 9000 people were murdered in the name of islam alone in 2011, and that's only one religion. Then there's the progress that stymied by religion such as stem cell research, evolutionary science etc etc.

    • @Ham_Sandwich27 OHHHHH.....I see something now. You're mad at religion for holding back progress.....you're mad at religion for deaths of people.....your mad at religion for.......anything else? I have a feeling your pissed at religion for much more!!!!

      What about the "scientific" research that the Nazi's did during the second world war ( I don't even want to go into detail on that one).....what about certain countries forcing their cultural differences (a type of religion) on other More..

      Ok, i'll bite.

      Explain to me how the fact that evil has been done in the name of science somehow undoes the evil done by religion.

  • I think what makes most religions look bad are the conservative, violent, or extremist ones. such as judism, islamic, and even catholic. if you look at other religions, lutherans, mormans, buddist, hinduism and many more you can see much progress and prosperity.

  • Or, do the "smart" people just "think" they are smart....and the "dumb" people know better? Some "smart" people think they don't need to be "told" how things are...they think they are "smart" enough to KNOW how things are. That could be a real problem.......for the "smart" people! :D

  • This is religion in a nutshell:

    People (like all animals) have an instinctive fear of death. This is what keeps people from getting themselves killed, and is a tool that allows the species to advance.

    This fear is healthy, and serves a biological purpose - so you can stay alive long enough to pass your DNA along.

    Death being the one fear we can never avoid (notwithstanding taxes)- we know it will eventually catch up with all of us, and there's no measure anyone can take to avert it, so it bec More..

  • Are athiests, athiests, because God cannot be proven? I would really like to know what makes a person an athiest. Can you prove God DOESN'T exist? Many scientists and "athiests" believe in theories or assumpitions that are still not proven, or cannot be proven to NOT exist. Whats the difference then?

      Can you prove there are no Faeries at the bottom of my garden, Simnut?
      How about Leprechauns you have proof that they do not exist?
      I doubt that you believe that they do , but do you have evidence that suggests otherwise?
      The same goes for whatever god you or others happen to believe exists.
      While not an acceptable scientifically, for me , the absence of evidence is evidence of absence.
      The burden of proof is on those to who want to dictate how others should live, according to their More..

    • @Simnut Look at the state of the world. Why does a god who creates and runs a world like this deserve to be worshipped?

      I'll even ALLOW your god to exist. Given that, how the hell does he deserve worship on the basis of his performance?

      If a man ran the world like this, he'd be more despised than Obama. Yet god gets a pass?

      So there you have it. Whether god exists or not is a moot point. The fact that he SUCKS ASS is readily observable. Now based on that, decide whether a god worth wors More..

      Can you prove that the universe is not controlled by a giant bowl of spaghetti?

      Of course you can't. Nobody can, because you cannot prove a negative. By saying "you can't prove it DOESN'T exist!", anything could be argued to exist - ANYTHING - including an omnipotent flying spaghetti monster.

      Disagree?? Go ahead and prove to me that the flying spaghetti monster doesn't exist, then i'll prove your god doesn't exist.

    • @Dick Fabulous well look how great of a job you are doing keeping the peace of the world. lol. not really a reason to say "god sucks ass". i mean really what does that prove? why not just let people believe what they want. comments like that dont help the case of atheism. more intelligent responses would be much better. as many of the other atheist on here are posting.

  • An 8 minute piece to say religious people are fucking stupid.

    Fuck the charts, just have a listen to what these idiots on TV say to get you to send in your hard earned money and see how rich they are because of stupid people that do exactly that.
