    Really, this whole rapture thing is getting old. A majority of Christians didn`t believe it, so why are so many people who aren`t Christians perpetuating it?

    `Cause its funny? They aren`t poking fun at Christians, they`re poking fun at the people who thought this and the people who believed it because of the irony and stupidity of it.

    Because a lot of so called atheists on here claim to not believe in god and use this to try and convince themselves. Yet even though they were born a christian/Jew/Muslim they haven`t bothered to go the a local church/mosque/temple to renounce there religion, just in case these religious zealots are right.

    People who are conflicted with if there is or isn`t a god with sit there and argue to justify there faith or lack there of.

    people who are confident with there beliefs will just move on to the next story of the day.

    why is it that religious people insist on wagging preachy fingers at people who think their faith is just one more line of bullcrap?
    why should anyone consider that a false assumption deserves a second look just because its a religion?
    i could use the same inane logic for drugs.
    i was raised around drug dominated neighborhoods and used science and reason to determine i didn`t want or need drugs, should i go renounce a drug dealer to prove that point?

    atheists aren`t confident in their beliefs, THEY DON`T HAVE ANY. i really wish religious people would at least TRY to make the distinction, its really important to do so.

    by the way, atheists argue their case constantly because to us, religion is the most dangerous drug known to mankind.

    @KidGixxor, How about those of us who weren`t raised into a religion and after finding out that people actually did that zany stuff, could never find any way to believe it? I guess I was born an Athiest, I heard about religion but I thought it was like Greek mythology, just old stories that people still like to talk about.

    Are all atheists anti-religion? (just a question, I`m actually not trying to be a dick)

    I`m not gonna try to convince anybody there`s a God if they don`t believe it.

    No. Including most of those that some theists claim are anti-religion. Gaining power by claiming to be victims has been a hugely successful tactic for a very long time. Hence, for example, claiming that atheists are anti-religion when atheists object to theists lying, indoctrinating children and infecting science so they can destroy it and twist it to their own ends. Creationism in schools is the best example of that at the moment.

    I`m certainly opposed to most of the effects religion has on the world. It`s usually a polarising force that promotes conflict, stifles thought and diminishes freedom. It`s arbritary and amoral. It`s too powerful because it attaches ultimate authority to people and hardly anyone is up to that.

    I`ll tolerate religion that has no power (though I regard it as dangerous and silly), but most religions seek power.

    Not all of them. But not believing in God causes us to sort of see the religious in a different way. On one hand, I believe everyone should have their own beliefs. On the other, I believe that it is false, and only wish for those that do believe to, to come to their senses so that their mind is free.

    And in response to Angillion, I`d like to say that religion has probably done more good than bad. Humanitarian aid, historical record keeping, education, medical advance, providing the impetus for the Scientific Revolution, etc. I could go on, but I feel I`ve made my point. To me, it`s just a tool that people can use; it`s up to people to use it properly. And since most people are good, most effects are good. Of course there`s some corruption and other flaws in the system, but its a powerful institution and thats going to happen because its run by people, who are fallible.

    @Kindpong got it right! Any organized group of people will have its corruption, it always happens. That is honestly why I never truly put my faith in what a man on a stage tells me, and rather on what my heart tells me is right.. if that makes sense.

    Education? what about all the backwards logic about the earth created 6000 years ago? The stifling of great astronomers because they found the earth wasnt the center of the universe? Records are kept by the ones that win, that religion just happened to beat the others at the time. Humanitarian aid, if you go to church for their god, a starving child will go to any church if it means they can eat and get medicine.

    Im not sure on the medical advance thing, but I do remember the dark ages and the black death was blamed on the people being sinners more then rats and the fleas that they carried, and that the people deserved do die for sinning for some reason.

    I think that you haven`t. You`ve stated some good things and attributed them to religion. Including, most bizarrely, "the impetus for the Scientific Revolution".

    Can you substantiate your pick `n` mix of good things other than historical record-keeping and (also historically) education? Both of which served the church very well in its quest for more power - they controlled the administration and the education (which was also an opportunity to preach to the next generation of the wealthy and powerful).

    On the down side, there`s war, war, more war and general oppression and evil. Pretty big downside.

    It also challenged the power of the church. Not only did it fail to protect its followers who gave their money to it, it even failed to protect its own members. Clerics had an even higher death rate than the population in general, mainly because they tended to live more closely together (in monasteries, abbeys, etc) but also because many clerics did try to heal the sick.

    The church countered with the brutality that was the norm for most of its existence.

    You`d like to believe that, but I`m afraid its not true, most atheists are not at all worried about the afterlife, they have passed over that false comfort long ago.

    There is *nothing* to renounce.

    Personally the arguing is a mixture of annoyance that otherwise rational people believe in an irrational mythology and concern that such irrationality has power.

    Angilion: Other than the Constantine era Roman Empire and the crusades, of the early Catholic church, Churches have stayed out of wars. Kings and Emperors started most of the wars. Yes, The churches were powerful, Too powerful, That is why America`s forefathers fled here, To free express their religious beliefs. That freedom is enshrined in our very 1st constitutional amendment.

    But let`s be clear here, buddhists, hindus, sikhs, mulims, and others religions have not only waged religious wars on each other but within their own religions as well.

    Christianity however is living up to Jesus` commandment that we love one another as he loved us. Christianity has created the Red Cross, Salvation Army, Children`s Fund, Habitat for Humanity, Samaritan`s Purse, St.Jude`s, Food Pantries, countless hospitals, and hundreds of others.

    Angilion: Other than the Constantine era Roman Empire and the crusades, of the early Catholic church, Churches have stayed out of wars. Kings and Emperors started most of the wars.

    And religion was one of the major factors in that. Religion is not only about churches.

    But let`s be clear here, buddhists, hindus, sikhs, mulims, and others religions have not only waged religious wars on each other but within their own religions as well.

    As has Christianity, only more so. Right from the beginning, with wars against heretics. Of course, each side regarded the other as heretics. The more power Christianity had, the more intra-Christian warring went on. It was the driving force behind centuries of wars in Europe, Britain and Ireland.

    Christianity however is living up to Jesus` commandment that we love one another as he loved us.

    So huge amounts of Christianity isn`t Christianity. I`m not convinced.

    Some charities were started by Christians, which isn`t the same thing as being a Christian charity. Some charities are rooted in Christianity and some of those don`t use charity as a tool for preaching.

    On the other hand, there`s all that war, torture, hatred and oppression.

    Overall, I think the bad outweighs the good when you`re looking at the effects of Christianity over time as well as the effects of religion overall over time. I still make my original statement:

    I`m certainly opposed to most of the effects religion has on the world. It`s usually a polarising force that promotes conflict, stifles thought and diminishes freedom. It`s arbritary and amoral. It`s too powerful because it attaches ultimate authority to people and hardly anyone is up to that.

    The last part of that isn`t exactly true for religions that don`t have an ultimate authority, but they all allocate an authority above all people and that works just as well.

    I remember watching "The Happening" (I think that`s what it`s called - Mark Wahlberg and Zooey Deschannel running away from a wind or dying bees or something).

    I thought from the ads it would be some great psychological thriller or something, but it just turned out to be some environmental preach at the end. F uckng awful director. It`s true what they say about his films: you watch and wonder what`s happening, then get to the end and just go "...Wha? Well that was crap".
