These aren't real Atheist! Real Atheists don't commit crime!

Yeah. Real Atheists don't flip flop and convert when they are in trouble.

Of course not! For a real Atheist there is nothing to convert to!


Actually, you would be suprised. People who become atheists do so because they got picked on in high school, for an example. Rummage through an atheist's emotional baggage and you will find a pile of leftover teenage angst, a few cases of repressed rage at mommy and daddy, and an overpowering urge to feel superior wrapped around a stupendous amount of self-loathing.Its pretty easy to be an atheist when you are in your teens and 20's. Mostly because of the reasons I  mentioned and because they want to rebel against the community, society or their family so they become the opposite of what they are.But I knnow quite the few cases when a person, that had close-death experience or one of their relatives did, begins to beleive in God, higher power and afterlife. so, really atheism is a pretty empty and shallow belief. I would like to see a person 5 minutes away from death and say ''there is no afterlife''.

Religious people on the other hand are ready to go trough everything for their belief and stick to it till death. Jews and Christians are best example of this.

This is perhaps the most ignorant post I've ever read and that's saying something. You clearly have no understanding of atheism and simply want to put down anybody who does not share your beliefs.


Relax, I meant no insult. But the stuff I said are true.Not for all atheists but for a large majority or at least these ''internet atheists''

The "stuff you said" seems a lot more like an uninformed opinion than something you can just claim "is true".  Got any actual links to studies, research or anything remotely close to proof or evidence to substantiate your "truth"?

I speak from experience. So there you go

lol - there I go ignoring your uninformed opinion then.

High  school picking and teenage angst I have  no evidence of. But the amount of self loathing and urge to feel superior is the case in about 75% atheists I know in real life.

What do you mean "urge" to feel superior.  We are superior!



Try to be reasonable... its easier than you think...

I don't believe this statistic because it's singling out Christians.

On the other hand, I will take a dumbass "evil" person over a smart, educated one any day of the week.

A dumb criminal goes to a bank with a mask.

A smart criminal goes to Wall Street in a suit.

The later causes massive damage and get away with it.

And then, let's go to the levels of smartness here (criminal here will mean more general term of doer of evil and not just breaker of law):

* On the next level, the criminal who did such would also do it in such away that they are not able to get charged for any crimes, eventhough harming lots of people in the process and destroying lives.

* On the level beyond that, the criminal will then not only use the current system to maximize his own wealth and not break any laws, but also work to change the laws so that doing such is able to be gotten away with..

* On the level beyond this, the criminal ends up not being the one to change the laws, but to get others to do it, and help to foster and promote a culture that is supported, where a lot of people get harmed and such is chalked up as "the free market at work".  And, on top of that, the individuals who get harmed are turned into individuals to be despised by this.  Yes, foster a culture where individuals are driven to take more risk than they should, because this criminal is seen as a role model.

Well, back to the earlier points, yes the stupid criminal is better than the smart one.

aren't self loathing / urge to feel superior 2 mutually exclusive feelings? are you sure you're not confusing 'atheists' with the group of emo kids you knew back in school?


we didnt have no emo kids back in the school, but almost all emo kids are atheists anyway, so...



lol... you need to leave that cozy little bubble you're living in Player1X3. there's a huge world out there for you to explore, and all those preconceived notions you seem to have (in this case about atheists) would just be smashed to pieces if you could break out of the indoctrination you suffered :)
