So getting back into the swing of things with a nice little “I Get Mail” session.
This one is from someone who claims to be an “Atheist Priest/Pastor” and I assume is either a joke or someone pretending to be one.
Pretending to be one “badly”.
Behold. Atheism is a religion.
I can’t take you seriously when you use the word “Behold”. When someone says “Behold!” it better be followed by “My Supermutants/Death Ray/Ginormous Penis” and to which I would respond with “Oh Yeah?”
Proof:A religion is a set of laws, like the bible has the 10 commandments, Islam and Judaism has its laws.
No. A religion is a belief in a god. The remainder of the rules are just window dressing.
Laws of atheism:1. There is no god. 2. Anyone who believes in a god is stupid/dumb.3. Science is the answer 4. Mr. Dawkins, Ron Hubbard and Charles Darwin are the “three wise men” of the RELIGION of ATHEISM.5. There is no bigotry of a persons sexual orientation.and lots more…
Hardly… There are no gods and that’s it. Everything else is just extrapolation from that premise.
1. There are no gods.
2. The people who believe in gods are not stupid but believe in something not real.
3. Science is just the best way of explaining how the world works
4. L. Ron Hubbard isn’t an atheist nor is he considered a “wise man” of Atheism. Darwin is widely considered to be incorrect in the way his idea of evolution occurred.
5. Bigotry does exist within atheism. There are racist atheists out there, there are homophobic ones and there are ones who are sexist too. However a lot of atheists also have progressive values that are anti-discriminatory.
A religion requires faith.Atheism has an absolute faith that there is no god, heaven or hell.
Not really. Atheism is primarily based on an absence of evidence for a god or heaven or hell. In much the same way that we don’t believe in ghosts or vampires.
A religion requires devoutness.A devout atheist believes in his/her religion of atheism and will therefore not mix with “UNBELIEVERS”, such as religiots. Nor believe their drivel or be convinced by it.
I have friends who believe in religions and I do work with people who believe in things. You are confusing atheism with being a dick.
Also the true “RELIGIOUS ATHEIST” has no fear of the fire of hell. What a relief. No braai when we die.
Any more than the Christian fears the whips of Naraka.
A “Religion” has either a god/diety or prophet or both that started it.And for the all mighty atheist faith it was Mr. Dawkins.The prophet. But no god (notice no capital “g”) required in this religion.
I didn’t come from the same religious background as most western atheists and indeed never really believed in Jehovah, Allah or Yahweh or what have you. I was “always a Abrahamic Faith Atheist”. Dawkins had a relatively small influence on me since I don’t come from the same source of atheism. My atheism was a product of violence and murder and the response of a child to the tragedy of Ayodhya. Where grown men killed each other over a doll.
Dawkins didn’t come from that. No gods, not even among men.
And finally we don’t have to blow ourselves up to get to a nonexistent paradise above.We don’t have to whip ourselves and repent.
We don’t whip ourselves. But we do things similar to that. We push ourselves to be the best we can be and often that requires sacrifice.
By the way, us atheists get baptized every day when we have a bath or a shower. So we don’t need to be baptized, cause every day we do it. So our “nonexistent sins” are washed away.
Meh, that’s your point? The symoblism behind baptism is poignant but that’s really it.
BELIEVE IN THE “RELIGION OF ATHEISM”. Repent from “theism” and be baptized.
No… I don’t think atheism is a religion anymore than not playing football is a sport.
This just reads like a parody of what people think Atheists are like.
