Cool debate I started.

Except I didn't mean to start it.

I just simply meant that (some) Atheists preach and spread their beliefs the same as those who have a religion. Atheism has become a religion to stand against religion.

My cousin pulled that line on me once. So I asked him if he believed in Thor. He told me that that wasn't point. But I continued and I told him that by his logic if he doesn't believe in Thor the norse god of thunder, that it means he does believe in Thor. Which means he's violating one of the then commandments (thou shalt have no other god) and he is now going to hell.

He realized I wasn't taking him seriously and he walked away. It was a good day.

@DuckBoy
Well then by that logic you believe in Ra, the ancient Egyptian sun god. Which, assuming you're christian, means you are going to hell.

Just curious: how does an atheist justify morality? Is it just self-interest (if I kick that guy in the nuts, he'll beat the crap out of me) or... Hmmm... I honestly can't think of any non-religious reason for morality. So does might make right? Whomever can kill the best gets to be king? Or are you all hypocrites?

@patchouly, I would say a "disbelief" is still a "belief".

If not believing in God makes me religious {of sorts} then not believing in Affirmative Action makes me African American. {that bit's funnier if you know how cracker-white I am}

"Being an Atheist isn't about what you believe, but about what you DON'T believe."

That's EXACTLY what Atheism is, I don't why it's so hard for people to grasp such a simple concept.

I once had someone try to tell me that in order to deny the existence of god you must first believe that he exists which means there's no such thing as an Atheist because technically you do believe.

Not at all. Atheism is a disbelief of religion and a supreme being. Nothing more, nothing less.

Being an Atheist isn't about what you believe, but about what you DON'T believe.

@ 5Cats - I see your point, I just think it's wrong.

A belief does not mean religion. I believe my boy was the best son ever born and has grown into the greatest man any father could wish for. That's my belief. His ex girlfriend believes he's a douchebag. Neither is a religion.

Atheism, in a lot of cases, IS a religion.


Be brave @HalfPintRoo! Don't let the h8ters shout you down!

Atheism is a WAY of looking AT religion. It represents a SET of beliefs about spiritual stuff.

Hockey is a sport.
Football is a sport.
Golf is a sport.

Yet the three have seemingly NOTHING else in common. But they're all "ways of doing sports" just as Atheism is a "way of understanding" God-related stuff.

You know, STUFF!

@Gerry1 and @FeelTheRide: Know what channel is being broadcast over my TV right now?
"Off"

I rest my case.

"Atheism, in a lot of cases, IS a religion."

Forgive me Roo, but that is one of the dumbest statements I have ever read at IAB. It's like saying "Black, in a lot of cases, is white". Yes an atheist can be over zealous to the point of irritation, but "religion" requires the ritual of spiritual faith. There is not ritual in atheism. There is no alter, no services, no pews. Lots of kneeling on a drunken Saturday night but that's another story.

Smart, in a lot of cases, IS stupid.

"Atheism, in a lot of cases, IS a religion." NO, no it isn't. What people have done with or to it could support your statement but not fact.
Don't blame the state of Atheism on a few idiots just like you wouldn't for any other large group.

That is absolutely true, if you decide on your own definitions of words.

For the most part, the religious types sincerely believe their way is good, better. They just don't get why it is not appealing to the majority of people. And it is the majority, how many people do you know actually live by those standards? I know one, only one. Nice lady though.

Er, no. It's the conclusion of mankind's collective logical and enquiring thought. I am willing to be proved wrong.

It's reminiscent of the argument that it's not really a hobby if I don't collect stamps.

Religitards who cannot put up with being told the truth about how a small group of twisted old men has manipulated their gullibility for their own gain using nothing more than a lame story about an imaginary friend should go live somewhere people still live in fear and dare not speak up about the obvious deception.

I love run on sentences. There; I said it.
