Because religion holds back progress and is the single greatest scam of all time. Religion is a bussines, and a very high raking one at that. But keep saying halleluja while the silver plate goes around if you'd like. Just remember that most of the great atrocities came under the guise of religious intervention. The crusades, the burning of women for being witches, ku klux clan.. And that's just Christianity which is supposed for be the most lenient religion. With Judaism you have surgical attacks on children. The jihad from Islam,
The list of atrocities is so long.
beheading for blasphemy, justifying 40 year old men having sex with 14 year olds because of Holy marriage. Oppressing freedom and isolation from outside world by cults such as jehovas witnesses,
Meanwhile every religion preaches love and hospitality as if morals and ethics would not be able to exist within humans without it.

But religion is not teaching all those you mentioned, especially my religion, you just repeating what media and hater propaganda without clarified the source, and thanks to Islamic Civilization, you wouldn't have a PC and Video games  right now because Islam and their civilization contribute  science and culture to this era, and also help brought back the science from Rome era before Cristian rule Rome. You can blame person but you cannot blame a religion, i admitted having religion is not a guaranteed a person becoming a religious person or a good person, a lot of Muslims and christian made a mistake and ignored their own teaching. But that's how religion help to make people to become a good person but the choice is up to the person. One thing for sure don't just believe what TV, Internet or people say without prove it by your self, because the same with video games and car, people opinion are varied and cannot be trusted.

I have to agree with that but there's plenty of other regions/countries where religion is the justification behind war and violence.

But why the fuck so you get to tell me I'm stupid for being religious?

People insult each other all the time for any reason, be it religeon, sports, gaming, fashion, music, etc.
That is completely different from imposing your beliefs on how people should live their lives in society through law.


But people assume that I must be an unintelligent person solely because I'm religious, which doesn't make sense. You're skirting around my responses. And I meant do, not so, in my previous post.

The basis for the comment I replied to is "why can't religious people and atheists live in harmony", which is what I focus on. Insults can be shaken off or even ignored. But being forced to do something by law cannot be ignored. People being forced to live their everyday lives based on other people's religious views that they don't believe in at all will naturally generate animosity. And some of those mean comments people hear are no doubt rooted in unleasant experiences with religion.
Not everyone thinks religious people are uninteligent though. And people turn to religion for different reasons. Like I said, it's also human nature that many people will hate what they don't agree with, be it religion or anything else. There's no avoiding that.

Atheism is a religion.

They worship something. Whether it be nature or human reason. I think that is why they are fundamentally at odds.

Ah yes, we might as well of just stood in line formations with bright clothes on and fought like that. A president kept the kid gloves and training wheels on the military. Evidently, presidents play the role of general poorly.

We can and do live side by side in many cases.

But if by side by side you mean atheist respecting your religion then I would have to disagree.

No matter how placid a religion may be, wrong is still wrong.

I respect people to much to pretend to respect some of the non sense they believe.


Lol. I guess you just fucking know everything then, don't ya?

First off all, is there a need to resort to swearing as it just reflects badly on you.

Secondly, I certainly never claimed to know everything anywhere in my comment. I have never seen or heard evidence for the existence of god that was even remotely compelling and I have no problem telling people that.

I would be showing less respect to people if I said I respect their beliefs when I clearly don't.

Why must we cower away from having an honest discussion over our belief's?

Sorry, but no.

Atheism means they do not believe in any religion. If it cannot be proven to be real, it is assumed that it is not in fact real.

There is no 'worship' involved to deduce this conclusion.

That is like saying Liberalism, or Socialism are religions - this could not be further from the truth. They are ideologies. There is a difference between an ideology and believing in some invisible being. An ideology is an idea, or an opinion of worldly affairs if you will.



The replies were funny. Stick to videogames, VGC.
