Your actions speak louder than your words and you ARE trying to proselytize atheism. I make no judgement on you except for what I see here. You have NO idea what I believe because I've not tried to change your mind. I'm just pointing out that you do for atheism what others do for religion. Personally I think opinions are like assholes. Everybody has one and they all stink. So you find a website that you agree with. Good for you. I'm not so shallow that I can be swayed by pretty words. I'll examine the evidence and make my own judgements thank you-very-much. I'll end this by going back to my first message. I respect your right to have whatever opinion you want. Please respect mine to believe what I want. Neither is right nor wrong, but different.


Uh, but at the end of the day, God either does or doesn't exist. So there's only one correct answer right? But either nobody will ever find out because ded x.x, or we'll all sh** our pants at the pearly gates before either entering or being cast down to chill with Satan.


I don't understand the point you are trying to make other than we don't know. I have a friend you might like. He declares himself a Militant Agnostic and to quote: I don't know and neither do you! And that amuses me to no end. But I've been ready to answer for my actions here on Earth or, if there is such a thing, before the Pearly Gates or whatever form of afterlife you believe in. Another thing that amuses was some graffiti on the Benny Hill Show. God is dead - Nietzsche followed by Nietzsche is dead - God. And while find this thread amusing it is growing weary on me.

You're not asking a question or looking for an answer. You just want to make yourself sound cool on the internet by bashing something you think is uncool. How juvenile. Your opinion holds just about as much truth as the things you are trying to disprove. I don't see how you can think you've reached enlightenment with a mind that narrow, honestly. It's quite amusing.

EDIT: My bad. I had thought you were the one who created the title as a question. Turns out you're about as narrow-minded as they get. Oh well.

P.S. Telling people to trash a belief system that others dedicate their lives to is just as bad as, if not worse than, religions trying to convert non-believers.

It depends on what you believe in. If you believe in Buddhism, Catholicism, etc.... then believe in it.

I respect as to why other people believe what they do, but as with anything, I don't let them influence my beliefs. Such discussions (as with other individuals) usually lead to never - ending debates as to who is right (As with politics).

I personally believe that there is a God. Yet people have taken advantage of his true meaning (As with any other religion) and made it into a religion, business, etc. *cough cough* churches....

There is no proof that God exist, but there is also no proof that he doesn't exist. Science tries to prove their biased views through such theories as "The big bang theory", but as with any hypothetical theory, it comes with it's flaws and an un - measurable amount of questions that can't be answered.

Sincerely, Zer0

Edit - I would go into further explanation, but it would be heading into my personal life.

Another Edit - I apologize for saying what I'm about to say. OP, you are overly biased. There are a lot of inns and outs, but pride has a way of speaking for itself. Sad to say, all the answers are the same, but are interpretated differently in terms of words. I shall say no more.

That's partly my fault. I modified the title and description to make it, well, less obnoxious than the original title. I agree the opening post is pretty much a rant on a soapbox and the thread was an attempt to just spread their opinion. I'm hoping though, that folks will answer the question, and discuss the topic anyway, regardless of if you agree or disagree.

Personally I think a more interesting discussion would be one that explores the subject of "Does it matter? Why or why not."

Well Stephen Hopkins said there was nothing so dangerous that it can't be talked about. And my own corollary: There is nothing so dangerous that it can't be laughed at. If this was the tame title; I'd hate to have seen the original.

All organized religion is garbage created by man for various reasons.. Its long since out lived any useful purpose and is mostly used to sway crowds and politics.

If I could somehow block these threads from popping up, I would. Do you really think all of these threads are somehow going to convert me to atheism?

In YOUR opinion. And you have the right to believe that. Just don't shove it on others.

Nothing wrong with a little rational debate, but the problem is these debates are never rational.

I think it matters depending on who the person is. Religion is not in itself a bad thing, but it is humankind that turns it into a bad thing. There are a lot of great lessons one can learn from certain religions( such as Christianity), but humankind will twist that for their own greedy issues. I'm familiar with a lot of the Bible verses that some people throw at Christians to make it seem like Christianity is evil(most from what I've seen is in the Old Testament, which I do not think I should get into a discussion on the Covenants unless you are interested. Short summary would be culture difference and that one covenant does not apply to Christians as Jesus came and died for our sins..I may need to go more into this to avoid confusion..I'll do that if anyone wishes me to explain further.). I also think religion has a big impact on culture and can help a culture thrive or destroy it. Religion is almost like a tool now that people will use to rule with. It all comes down to how the individual practices their religion. If they practice and are not out to using it for their own greed then it's totally fine and should not been thrown out. However if the person is practicing their religion for their own greed, then that twisted version of religion should be thrown out. I hope I made sense. I may have totally misread your question if I did do let me know and sorry.

To maybe expand on what I mean. Here is a documentary on Jim Jones. He preyed on a group of people who may be considered "weak" and basically convinced them he was a god. This is why I do my own personal research and do not go by what some person in an authority position tells me. Jim Jones twists the Bible for his own purposes and this is where my problem lies. No matter what religion someone is there will always be the ones who twist it for their own greed.

I believe we all want a place that we can "fit in" and be accepted it's a natural human want. This is when the greedy ones come in and will take something that starts off as innocent enough and completely butcher it.
