    What Are The Negative Consequences Of Atheism?

    Especially state sponsored atheism, historically.

    The negative consequences are that death is a scary, and absolute thing.  This life is it, and when you die, nothing,  You're gone forever.  That's a sad perspective.  The other negative is much worse, eternity in hell seperated from God.  If you don't accept Christ died and paid for your sins, you will have to pay for them yourself,

    1. Atheist communist and socialist regimes killed 100 million + people last century. When there are no religious moral constraints, there is only the state that seeks to be all powerful and sees its right as more important than the lives of the people. From China to Russia to Cambodia, really easy for state mandated atheist regimes to mass murder.
    2. Lower social cohesion because of lower social trust, which is driven in part by religion. You see atheist churches popping up specifically to try to recreate this tribal unity.
    3. Birth rate drops below replacement level because atheists don't have the same hope for the future. See environmentalism's ever more apocolyptic predictions of famine, fire, flood, all life on earth will die - even though their 1970s predictions utterly failed.

      If I asked for any kind of source to the, quite literal, utter nonsense you spouted, I wonder if I would actually get one from a reputable source.

      Provided I get one at all that is.

      Link....her points are common knowledge. Do some research. You will find the facts you ask for, though I doubt you will....Atheists are shielded in the U.S. because our laws are not built upon atheist principles---that's why we enjoy great freedom.

      None of these things are common knowledge, rather massive assumptions and twisting to fit a personal perception. That's ok though, I get a good laugh out of religious folk saying atheists try to slander religion and then turn around & say this st

      The only part that is common knowledge is #1, and even that she managed to twist around.

      If someone says something is such and such, I want THEIR sources.

      I don't get why people seem to think "Research it yourself" is a smart thing to retort with.

    Only negative I've experienced has been people repeatedly accusing me of having no morals/hating religion/being somehow a less creative or imaginative or open human being.  And that has more to do with judgmental people than atheism itself.  So, yeah.
