Why Do Atheists...

  1. TMMason profile image64
    TMMasonposted 7 years ago

    Who do Atheists feel the obsessive need to interject their vitrol and arrogance into any topic involving God, or Religion?

    Cannot Religionists discuss their beliefs without the anger and dis-respect of non-believers?

    Do they really think that sniping and denying gets them anywhere, or contributes to the dicussion at hand in any meaningful way?

    Seriously.

    They run into a topic and make outragious assertions. Which I have yet to see ANY OF THEM BACK UP.

    And then smile and pat one another on the back for what they percieve as brilliance, and wait their turn again to snipe.

    You asked them a question in regards to what they are saying and they come up with any excuse not to answer it.

    I think most of them just don't know half of what they talk about, and the rest just think they know.

    So.

    I believe most of them are sad lonely people, with nothing better in their lives to do then harrassing people.

    It must be a sad, lonely world for them.

      I always do !
      And a lot of other hubbers as well. But you choose not to see, and offend everyone who doesn't think as you do.
      you are the sad one.

              my question is this.. non believers dislike God so much but none of them can answer the question as to WHY the insist on coming into religon forums?? they dont believe so why in the world do they CARE what believers are talking about?? honestly i know in my life things I dont care about I dont pay any attention to.... so there can only be two answers here... one they either care in some way which would make them a liar and too stubborn to admit this or two they just like to pick fights... immaturty rings true through ones actions and words. people who like to pick fights I have found either like it because they were taught this way of living or they are unhappy... unhappy people embrace these kinds of things because its their only sense of understanding things... people who are happy do not subject themselves to things that cause stress or even become the cause of stress... or maybe they are just bored.... but once again who cares. they are gonna do what they want. let them come into religious forums it only shows they must care enough to enter them....

                    Funny that, most atheists I know are happy well adjusted people. Now I wonder why they would object to your hate filled way of seeing life though your religion. You are going to live forever in heaven, while those heathens are going to be tortured forever after they die. Seems logical. Believe what YOU believe or die horribly! Now why would anyone object to that? I know! We will just let them keep spreading their awful lies and say nothing. smile

      Sorry, I'm an atheist and I have to disagree with you on this one.

      And also: I'm not here to harrass you.

      Actually, I can say the same thing you said about religious people I know. They never want to answer the questions I have about religion, the only thing they want to do is say that you have to believe it, or else.

      Come to think of it, I've seen more violence from religious believes (not only islamic, also christian) then from people convinced that no God exists.

      And calling atheists obsessive is also a laugh, there are only a few atheist who I might consider obsessive, but there are a LOT of obsessive Christians and Islamists.

    Thanks BC. I cannot recall one answer to the dozens of science backed posts that religionists ignore, then they come here saying they offered "proof" which was ignored. The only "proof" I have seen here from religionists who get their "evidence" from their own book! No proof exists for any fairies fellas! lol

    1. TMMason profile image64
      TMMasonposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      I have never said, I have "proof" of anything, I "believe", to be true.

      My belief is based on faith.

      Just like yours.

      I have stated that the theories science has in regards to the, "Origins", "Of The Universe", and "Life", and the theories of "Evolution" and "Man Made Global Warming", are as unproved as the faith of any religinist live by.

      In the end we all have faith in something, was my only assertion.

      Yet all of you have stated that is wrong, but have not shown me why it is wrong.

      But you have spouted your snipes and ill humor at me.

      As I said though, that doesn't prove anything.

      We all know a "Theory", is not a fact. Thus the term "Theory".

      And I have never ran into a science thread and started an arguement, or made half cocked assertions to begin fights.

      That is not how I work, E.

            That is not the same kind of scenario on many levels.  Your Paradigm includes two countries.
            WWII involved much more.  It was the strategic victories in Europe that forced the Germans to retreat to protect the homeland.  The Russians marched barefoot and unopposed into Berlin.

                  OK, let's see then. By the time Americans landed in Normandy Russians re-captured almost all of their territory, and already entered Poland at least. May be more, this is just from the top of my head. They did have momentum. This does not really fit your model of helpless aboriginals not able of doing anything without advanced Americans stealing focus of German army smile

                    I think if Poland had allowed the Russians to march through their country to attack Germany when war was declared the war would have ended much earlier.

                    If France had taken the declaration of war seriously and fortified their country instead of petty political bickering.  It would have been avoided.

                    If Belgium had not waited until the last minute to even consider a war  well you get the point.

    Does it really matter exactly how they won?

    Let's say Western Canada separates from Eastern Canada.  Everyone in Eastern Canada then gets some kind of brain-fever and Eastern Canada resorts to old-school imperialistic military expansion, sudden attacking both Western Canada and the United States.

    They kick the shit out of Western Canada, because the Easterners have most of the soldiers and equipment of what used to be Canada, and many times the population and production capacity.  Then Eastern Canada gets steam-rolled by the Americans, and Western Canada recaptures all lost territory while Eastern Canada's attention is otherwise occupied.  In fact, even though they've hardly got a military to speak of, the Westerns are able to capture a lot of territory that originally belonged to the Easterners because they are distracted with the larger threat.

    Considering the two Canadian factions, who won?
