Anonymous asked: And this is why we don't have peace in the Middle East.
The reason we don’t have peace in the Middle East is because we have a bunch of childish cults squabbling over plots of land they think their imaginary sky daddy promised them thousands of years ago.

Anonymous asked: Wait, aren't people allowed to believe whatever they want?
People are allowed to believe what they want. I’m also allowed to think those beliefs are ridiculous and outlandish. If they are willing to discuss their beliefs then they should be open to debate, discussion, and yes even criticism. I am not looking to force anyone to change their beliefs but I can’t understand how once a belief is shown to be irrational and illogical that someone would still cling to it unless it is for self centered reasons.

Anonymous asked: Wait, what about Buddhism and Taoism and such? Those are religions [Less violent than others], do you still hate those?
They are still religions, aren’t they? They are still irrational and detracting from reality, aren’t they? So yes, I still hate those religions just as I hate all other religions. It isn’t a matter of just a specific religion I hate or a specific practice or belief within religion, it is religion in general. Religion takes away from life, it distracts people from reality, and it treats this world as if it is unworthy of us. It undermines the importance and fleeting nature of life. Religion breeds solipsism and Buddhism and Taoism are just as bad, if not worse, at that as any other religion is. I don’t understand why I have so many people that think Eastern religion should get a free pass unless they are simply being racist and romanticizing the East as some sort of “enlightened utopia” where people can’t be irrational.

You can make a list a mile long of the things the bible got wrong, when it comes to things that the bible got right that weren’t known at that time you end up with nothing.

chelseakristine asked: I enjoy this page a lot. It brings be comfort to know that there are rational and logical people out there. Especially when I'm constantly surrounded by idiots who think "atheist" means "person without morals or anything to live for." When we know it's the exact opposite.
Thank you, I do appreciate it. I think if for no other reason at all that is a reason why Atheist groups, pages, and discussions are important. No one wants to feel as if they are the only one and honestly I am almost overwhelmed by just how many people from all different walks of life I’ve come across who identify as non-believers. We no longer have to hide in the corners of society being afraid to speak out about the sanctioned insanity that runs rampant in our daily lives, we can finally speak up and embrace freedom from the mental oppression shoved on to us for so long.
There are some religious people who will always have a negative view of Atheists, they are the people that are so small minded that they will hate and discriminate against anyone with even a small difference in their world view or opinion. We know that we share the moral high ground, we care about what is good and right because it is good and right not because a religion sanctions it. We are developing our morality the way that people did before religion came around and tried to hijack it all, by worrying about what is actually right or wrong, not just who tells us it is. In the long run non-believers will always be around and on a long enough time scale religions will always go extinct.
