Do you think atheists are typically arrogant? That’s definitely a stereotype out there; sometimes I fall into that category. Why can’t everyone see religion in the way that I see it? It’s just common sense to know that religion is bullshit, right?
As atheists, is it our duty to expose the evils of religion? In a way, “spread the word”?
We may have science on our side, but it always seems to be our word vs. theirs.
But take your average Christian in middle America – going about life, doing what they know and maybe don’t know any different – are they doing anything wrong? Is it their fault for not questioning their beliefs?
Is being skeptical a personal responsibility?
Are we smarter for questioning? Is being inquisitive an inherited trait? Why do some question and some follow blindly? I’d say that a lot of it has to do with your environment, yet so many people rebel against their upbringing. Could there possibly be a nurture vs. nature argument when it comes to faith?
I’d like to think I’m not an asshole. Deep down I know we are all just humans with our own experiences, trauma, abilities, and flaws and most of us are just trying to get by.
Hate the belief but not the believer? Maybe this is a case of live and let live.
Wanna take a stab at the many questions I vomited onto this post? I’d love to hear it.
