Being an atheist is the same as being an adherent to a religion. The difference is that one has to be more arrogant to state that his material being and his /her grasp of science is the end all be all of existence.



How is assuming that what you know about science is absolute truth any more arrogant than assuming what you know about the Bible or any other religious text is absolute truth?

...i believe in God because i Want to believe in Him... not just because of my family's influence to me...

Thank you. And good point.
I'm quite the opposite, I used to believe that worshiping God was important due to my family's Catholic influences, but as I've grown older and learned to think for myself, I've come to prioritize myself and beliefs in reality over belief in God. Can't say I don't believe he exists, but it's probably because of my upbringing that I can't completely disbelieve in his existence.

Wow, that kind of offended me a bit.

Just because people don't believe in the same God as you doesn't mean they "will never listen."

It's okay. I'm just the type of person who likes to learn about different religions and also being raised in a Christain family, I can see where they're coming from. Their belief gives them hope and it also makes them happy. But I do believe in the Christain God along with my own Deites.

i think people believe in god because of his rules... why dont people steal cheat pilliage gamble rape and go crazy i mean in a sense isnt doing something bad kinda fun but we dont do that because we believe that if we did god will send us to hell so people promote and believe in him because we need his heavenly figure to guide us from the destruction of mankind.. i mean lets just say that we all find out that there is no god and when u die u die.. i would go around cheating and stealing and even killing to get what is the most beneficial for me and i believe others will as well but because we believe in god and his rules we chose not to as we fear "an eternity in hell" thus resulting in a safe and more productive human race

I have no idea what you're talking about, or if it even has anything to do with what I posted, but how did you get the idea that I was close minded? Usually when someone asks a question, they do it so they can learn something, which is quite the opposite of close-minded.

Also, why should I believe in something that I've never seen/heard/felt/whatever? If I'm going to do that, then I might as well believe in any crazy crap that I can think of. I can believe that all matter is composed of really small garden gnomes, that there is a secret society of unicorns somewhere on the planet that contains all of the truths in the universe, that Tupac and Elvis never really died, they just drilled a hole to the center of the Earth and they've been spending every day there partying with Hitler and Socrates and the black Michael Jackson. Is that open-minded enough for you?
