Ways to Atheist attack Believers.

    sandra rinckposted 7 years ago

    Say something in the name of God... an atheist comes and says, there is no God.

    A believers says, May God bless you... an atheist says, "was that a threat."

    A believer says, I believe that God is Love... an atheist says, " there is no God but what makes you think I cannot love?"

    A believers says, I don't need proof to believe in God I have faith.  An atheist says, that just proves your God doesn't exist.

    A believers says, but faith is based on the principal of believing in the unseen God which is Love that you cannot see.  The atheist says, I only believe in what I can see, I need proof and facts.

    A believer says, but love is a fact, it's in my heart, I am not perfect but I want to be a better person like Jesus.  An atheist says.  I am perfect, I don't need God, I do not believe in what I cannot see, there is no God in your heart, there is no Jesus and your full of hate.

    A believer says, why do you hate me?  An atheist says, because you believe in God.

    A believer says, but God is love.  An atheist says, I cannot see any love in you.

    A believer says, I know, because you don't believe in things you cannot see.

      This atheist says : Why talk so much about love , when everybody knows that religions are mostly settled by the sword and maintained only by hypocrisy .

      More people where killed in the name of god than for any other reason .
      So please don't give me the "love" talk , try to read something else than religious books and open your eyes .

    Atheists sometimes get a really bad rap. To my knowledge I am the only one in my family who is an atheist; I love everyone in my family. Almost every one of my friends is a believer; I love every one of them. I don't despise anyone who is a believer, I just think they are mistaken, thats all. Christians, Muslims, etc., believe in one god and dismiss all of the thousands of others; I just believe in one less god than they do. I don't think I'm better or smarter because I'm an atheist; I'm far from perfect.

    You are correct, there is a lot more yet to be discovered that I'm sure we don't yet have the ability to detect with current methods. We atheists just don't like to assume the existence of things without definitive evidence. We think that's being cautious and reasonable.

    Killing in the name of god is often confused with killing in the name of territory or natural resources. Its basically the same thing when people don't have food to feed their families or are frightened that what they have may be taken away for some reason.

    The same logic applies when a once friendly dictator suddenly becomes public enemy number one and the country happens to have a large supply of natural resources. Strangely enough god is  usually on the side of the winner.At least history is written by the winner and from the winners perspective victory is often in the name of one got or another.

    Atheists go to war in the name of natural resources and territory without asking for a blessing but the winner still writes the history.

      I understand your point , but it is not important that war is started because of religion itself or that religion is being used as a lever for the masses . The results are the same . And let's not forget about the "domestic" wars and the oppression often caused by religion , many of the imposed rules are against human nature , atheists don't impose rules on anyone for as far as I know . They care about freedom , where instead religions have generally tendencies to impose their views to as much people as possible .

    Seems a little one-sided to me. All that "hate" from the atheist and all that "love" from the believer. Take god out of the equation and maybe we have one less reason to fight?

    I (speaking as the resident atheist) do not hate anyone. I may despise their religiosity - which I do, but I hate the idea of using an invisible, magical super being to incite violence and wars - as has been done many times.

    The whole "nationalism" thing is bad enough - I know I was sucked into that one - but when you claim to be doing it on behalf of the super being.....

    I have to ask just how stupid people can be?

          If you don't believe in any God, then how can you be against something that does not exist, in your own words?
          You don't like what God stands for, Love,Careing,a creator?
          Sounds like you don't exist in the real world.
          Man just wont give his creator any credit because man wants to do all the things that are not condoned by Gods law.

            Man won't give you any credit because you are wrong. You are just refusing to accept the truth of the FSM because your god is a feeble weak pathetic hypocrite of a god who says "love" and means something else.

            Next time you eat some macaroni and cheese, close your eyes, open your heart and the truth will manifest itself - if you are worthy enough. Maybe. And have drunk enough wine. And already believe. Possibly. If you behave yourself. And do as I say.

    First of all, it is not a hatred of the person that atheists feel. It is just not believing in their belief. Anyone who has "hatred" for another because of their beliefs does not have love, from God or any other source. But because there can be love without God, God does not equal love, love equals an emotion and experience that anyone can feel and have regardless of their religious beliefs (or lack of).

      So you hate that you don't believe what others believe? I agree, anyone who has hatred for others because of their beliefs does not have love from God or any other source.

      And I agree with what you said about love, so why get upset about me equating it to God, the Unseen? 

      It shouldn't bother you.

        I don't hate that I don't believe what others do. What I said was atheists don't believe what believers do... no hate in that statement, no hate from atheists. And I never said I was an atheist, did I?

        It doesn't bother me that for you, you believe love in your life is from God. That's fine. What does bother me is that you are insinuating that atheists don't have love in their life because they don't believe in God, when that simply is not true. Atheists believe in love, which is an emotion and an experience, obviously something that cannot be seen.

          Nothing is going to make you believe what you don't believe.  I can't deny that.  But insisting that anyone who believes that God is Love and keeps offering love only to be treated with anything but love doesn't make me want to jump on the atheist band wagon either.

              I started it in the Spirit of understanding what gets repeated by atheist to believers who believe that God is love.

              You could go back and pick out any sentence and find it used several times already.

              So I asked you first about your definition of love, obviously yours is the only one you know. But according to your post, you would rather have a world without love.

      I agree with you. My take is all those who believe in God don't always love everybody else and at the same time all those who don't believe in God don't necessarily hate everybody else either. Love exists in its multiple forms(i.e., love towards family, friends, animals, plants, environment/nature, country and so on) irrespective of whether we believe in God or not. smile

    Few Sandra, very few atheists hate believers. I have never met an atheist who hates believers. So your original post is a very wide generalization and not really necessary. By writing your original post you are putting all atheists into that category, and now you're backing out of it and narrowing who it applies to... which is actually quite a small number of people.

    Colebabieposted 7 years ago

    Nothing in your original post have a ever heard from an atheist. I'm just being honest. I was interested in responding because of this.

    Say something in the name of God... an atheist comes and says, there is no God.
        I've never heard someone say "God Bless You" when someone sneezes and the atheist in the room say "There is no God".

    A believers says, May God bless you... an atheist says, "was that a threat."
        Again, I've never heard this. And if someone said it, it probably was a joke.

    A believer says, I believe that God is Love... an atheist says, " there is no God but what makes you think I cannot love?"
         This I have never heard, but I suppose is a rightful question. If an atheist said "I don't believe in God, but I love, so I don't think the origin of love is God." That would be a good statement.

    A believers says, I don't need proof to believe in God I have faith.  An atheist says, that just proves your God doesn't exist.
         Atheists believe in things that don't have "proof."

    A believers says, but faith is based on the principal of believing in the unseen God which is Love that you cannot see.  The atheist says, I only believe in what I can see, I need proof and facts.
        Read above. The thought that atheists don't believe in God because He is unseen, is wrong.

    A believer says, but love is a fact, it's in my heart, I am not perfect but I want to be a better person like Jesus.  An atheist says.  I am perfect, I don't need God, I do not believe in what I cannot see, there is no God in your heart, there is no Jesus and your full of hate.
          Atheists don't think they are perfect. It isn't that they think "they don't need God" they simply just don't believe. Telling someone they are full of hate is a spiteful person, not an atheist.

    A believer says, why do you hate me?  An atheist says, because you believe in God.
         See above.

    A believer says, but God is love.  An atheist says, I cannot see any love in you.
         That just doesn't make any sense. No one would deny the presence of love in someone unless they made a statement full of hate.

    A believer says, I know, because you don't believe in things you cannot see.
        Again, has nothing to do with atheism.

    Mark wants to do away with "your kind of love and understanding" because it is not "love and understanding" at all. You don't understand atheism and rather than trying to understand it, you would rather just defend your beliefs with what you think atheists are.

      and what exactly is my kind of love and understanding?

      I can't say you have never heard an atheist say these things before but it happens in front of your eyes but you don't want to see it.

      I have heard all of the above so many times and because they do not believe in God, I know that they aren't directing their hate towards God, they are directing it towards a person individually.

      So to say that it is not the person that they hate is just a decoy for their true feelings.

      You also do not want unconditional love?

    Well I don't know who you hang out with that would say that stuff. I have family members, and friends who do not believe in God and they are all caring loving people who do not bash believers like in the statements that you made. How can someone hate someone they don't even know? Atheists know that logic, so I find it hard to believe that someone would HATE a person based on their belief. Have you personally been attacked? Or just the part of you that has to do with your belief in God? I'm sure it is the latter. If it is the first, it has nothing to do with them being atheist, just an asshole.

    And I have love in my life. I would never want unconditional love, that is love regardless of one's actions, and I think that you should love based on one's actions. Or you're just loving everyone even if they're bad people. Thanks.

    Did I say any of that? No. And I never would. Because it isn't what I believe. So that is YOU assuming things about ME. What I said is that people who don't know what they're talking about (but make statements like they do) annoy me. You don't know anything about atheism, and you don't know anything about me. So you just proved my point.

      But you don't know about me and my personal belief but you are assuming you do based on what you think you know about my personal belief based on what you understand.

      So in the same instance I could say that people who don't know what they are talking about annoy me.  Then again, you would probably take this as not being a loving person because you would feel this as a personal attack.

      You are not as fair as you believe you are. But thanks for calling me annoying.  I am sure this wasn't directed to God or anyone else on this thread.

      Unless you meant believers, a group of people which you classify into one general group.  Which you yourself said was unfair yet you are doing right now.

    I didn't make any generalizations about you. I didn't make any assumptions about your beliefs either.  I said that you don't fully understand atheism. That is all I said in regards to you and your beliefs.

    I think you are a loving person. You are defending what you believe which shows passion. But you are criticizing all atheists for things they do not do, that shows lack of understanding.

    Yes, I do find your lack of understanding annoying. I didn't mean to categorize believers into one category, because certainly they are not. I meant in the regards to those who believe in God, atheists do not hate. The categorizing was not in a negative or generalizing way, it was in a grouping way. "Believers" meaning those who believe in God, a group of people that I didn't say anything negative about. There is a difference between categorizing based on facts (belief in God), and generalizing based on thought (all atheists hate believers).

      A believers says, I don't need proof to believe in God I have faith. An atheist says, that just proves your God doesn't exist.

      A believers says, but faith is based on the principal of believing in the unseen God which is Love that you cannot see.  The atheist says, I only believe in what I can see, I need proof and facts.

      A believer says, but love is a fact, it's in my heart, I am not perfect but I want to be a better person like Jesus. An atheist says.  I am perfect, I don't need God, I do not believe in what I cannot see, there is no God in your heart, there is no Jesus and your full of hate.

      A believer says, why do you hate me?  An atheist says, because you believe in God.

      A believer says, but God is love. An atheist says, I cannot see any love in you.

      A believer says, I know, because you don't believe in things you cannot see.

      I thought I would clear up my position on an atheist.  Not all atheist. Not, Atheist. 

      I guess what you didn't read the post where I said that I originally thought that atheist was anti theism which is the non belief in dogmas and doctrines etc..

      I hadn't anything against that position, I actually called myself a spiritual atheist for a while because I don't particularly care for the dogmas and doctrines but some atheist are taking it to assume that because they are anti theism, the general assumption of atheism isn't against religious anymore and the freedom of people to chose what they feel is best for themselves.

      It's changed to the belief that anyone who does believe in God, no matter what the belief is, if it includes the word God, then it is illogical and annoying. And that the idea of God should be stricken from the record of thought all together.

          typo, I mean Its.

          Yes atheism. It changed from the idea of freeing people from religious (oppressive bonds).. things like smiting themselves with whips, or having to be married when they don't want to be, or having to attend a certain church, dress a certain way, say only certain things etc...

          to the idea of getting rid of all religions, taking the word God out of history, making it virtually impossible for someone to say God, without persecution impossible.

          It goes as far as to allow perfectly innocent people to be "bullied" for their attire which some feel very comfortable with, for praying at a dinner table in a restaurant.

          To even allowing students in public schools studying Shakespeare to be openly flippant about the idea of God being part of Shakespeare's work.

          And just like the history books, what comes next seems inevitable.  And so while I do know that some religions will hold there followers as "prisoners" almost, that in this day and age, not all people who believe in God are being oppressed and feel quite free this way. 

          For them to speak up about how they feel... if it is said with in the name of God... well then it is like a free for all.

          Like Mrs. California. I don't care if she believes that gay marriage shouldn't be legal, that is what she believes but the amount of controversy over her personal feelings was crazy.

          Some people hate her because she feels that way about marriage, but it wasn't the gay community that hated her.  That is strange.

                The reason why she wasn't "hated" by some members of the gay community is honestly because they're used to having people against them, and because they have fought oppression they know that it is important to let people have their own thoughts.

                I don't hate her either. I am annoyed and frustrated by her lack of understanding though. But she will believe what she wants, and she should be able to.

                I don't think she's a narrow minded bimbo because she is religious, though, so it might not do much for your collection.

                Many religious people of my acquaintance are among the most broad-minded I know.

    Well Colebabie/Sandra can we step back and restate that all believers (no matter what religion/God) aren't narrow minded(or hate atheists) and at the same time all atheists also aren't having any ill feelings against believers. There are good, average and bad  traits in individuals irrespective of what there personal beliefs are. We only know so little about ourselves hence to speak for somebody else can be fraught with inconsistencies/distortions. I hope we can carry on the debate in a spirit of understanding(ourselves/others better) and if at all we have to disagree then we can do so agreeably. Peace my friends. smile

    Ok I think you were referring to atheism. In that case, saying that atheism has changed to believing that anything having to do with God is illogical and annoying, isn't true. Atheism is the lack of belief in deities. How a certain atheist defends their stance is up to them. You may have just had bad experiences. The atheists I know just don't acknowledge God at all. Bashing other religions isn't a part of that.

      You know I have been more hurt by some believers who think my background(Hindus) are Satan/Devil(idol)worshipers and have written even hubs stating that except for there brand of religion all other followers are "robber/thieves"(which includes my family members). And that my wonderful grandfather's soul would be eaten by worms. I can never forget how some believers in a certain brand of religion have treated me compared to atheists who have never said anything against my sensibilities. But still I don't want to generalize that all believers are equally myopic as those few believers.

      Not so around here Colebabie.  And Mark will tell you that himself with his posts if you stick around long enough.  He is clearly the main one that is giving atheists a bad rep around here.  And just about everything that Sandra has quoted from atheists, either in her first post or above has been posted by Mark.

        Everything that Mark has said has been in response to something else. Defending yourself is one thing. Putting yourself out there in the spirit of hate is another.

    Sandra if she wants to find them all she has to do is look back through Mark's Hubtivity on his profile.  But that would be what Mark wants.  Controversy is cash isn't it Mark.

    all what I want to say is love comes from God

    but an atheist can love and be loved

    people become religious because of different reasons

    and so atheists ....

    some people become atheists because they think they are perfect and they need no God ( like the guy in Sandra story)

    they ignore/don nu / forgot they can't live without him
    may be they need to think more deeply , and so do we


    I don't think Sandra hate athiests or wanna divide the world

    but she may stop standing against some of them when these stop making fun of her beliefs ..

    best regards

    I am an atheist. I do not believe in god, but that does not mean I hate a single person who does. I have had more people turn away from me solely for the fact that I don't believe in god than you might believe and yet I have never turned from a person solely because they believe in god. Who hates who. I have found that many religious people often take non-belief as a personal attack on themselves, and suddenly I become an amoral person, when they have known my character for years and liked me just fine. However, I know many more "believers" who accept me just as I am because they can see that I accept them just as they are. The initial post is so one-sided as to be dismissable, one cannot lump an entire group of people in such a way and have it be even near the truth.
