I wanna know your personal reason for expressing or not expressing a faith(Religion). How do you think it affects people? Positively Negatively etc.

Not an argument, just your personal reason.

You dont. However I never understood why Atheist should not Rape, Kill, or Murder. I mean, why not? Your all just worm food like you never existed, so NO CONSEQUENCE!

Atheism makes no sense to me.

The funny part is same people who say they are Atheist ask for a priest when faced with death or beg to God like babies when shot.

So.....

@cadencev2: I would be more worried about the people who need an almighty deity to tell them its wrong to rape or murder someone, are you saying you would rape and murder if you didnt suffer any consequences? Cause it sounds like it, and then you are seriously ill.

I find that it's usually the other way around, that's how it was for me, I believed in the Christian god when I was little, but then again, I also believed in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy.

You're only not killing because you think you might be punished for it when you die?


And you think that atheists who find religion are a problem?

You're a terrible person.

Simply a case of was I practicing what I believed, and did I "believe" what I believed. And the answer to both those questions were no. So why kid myself and live a lie? From my viewpoints in life, and what I know to be true, it became something where I felt I was either I was diluting myself to fit in to something that wasn't natural for me, or I was warping or ignoring what I was following to suit me. Both of which are not healthy.

Faith has driven people to do both horribly evil and incredibly good things. Faith isn't good or bad in of itself- it merely acts as a catalyst to drive the intentions within us. That's my Opinion anyway :P

Ummm....Because it's wrong?

Also what determines it is wrong? In the Midevil days when Rome left Europe to defend for itself, everyone was stealing, killing, and raping for the hell of it. None had any order till the Church stepped in.

Society determines what is wrong and right correct? There were many societies in the past that said raping and killing is A OK as long they are infediles, lesser men, slaves.

This is a fact. It is 9 out of 10 times Faith that steps in and determines moral compasses in a faithless area. The only reason it is wrong to ya is because you were taught it was by your lack of belief.

That means we all are murdering, raping, torturing heathens with no natural moral compass. Thank you non believers for proving this time and again over 4000 years of civilization.

Now I need to find a Russian slave girl for kicks.

Flying Spaghetti Monster.

Common human decency perhaps :P

I'm an agnostic BTW. The lack of evidence either or against a God, means people are free to pick what suits them IMO, but I'm pretty sure the Monotheistic Judeo-Christo-Islamic God doesn't exist, or at the very least, isn't what many claim him to be.

If Jesus knocked on my door and turned my water into wine, then I'll consider going to church. If a god can't put any effort into proving to its followers that it exists, then it shouldn't expect me to believe it exists.

I don't believe in God because of all the contradictions. He says he loves us but then gives us disease, hurricanes, tornadoes, famine, Bieber and so on and so on. Plus all of the crap Satan gets into. If he's so all powerful than why aren't we all happy? Religion was created pretty much to control people. Don't do this and this and this. Some make sense like murder and lying and cheating. Don't covet your neighbors goods though? Should wanting the rose bush in their yard or the new car they just bought really be punishable by an eternity of fiery torture? It's all good though. Just ask for forgiveness and you can do whatever you want.

Religion breeds more hatred, ignorance and intolerance than any Atheists have. The Westboro cretins come to mind.

How many Atheists do you know that got religious on their deathbed? that's just a stereotype religious people use.

Also if someone does "find god" isn't it a good thing? Isn't that the point of spreading the word of god and the door to door religious salesmen?

And what does that say about certain religious people if the only reason why you don't kill and rape is because you might go to hell? that's it? that's the only reason why you don't do it? I would be scared to be in a church if I knew everyone around me was a psychopath just wanting to kill and rape everyone.

I believe in 10 Commandments, they are the best Guidelines to a good life for all IMO. Other then the one that says "Thou shall not say God Damnit, when you stub your toe" I think the damn Catholics force that one in there over time.

I also HATE RELIGIOUS FANATICS so much. I hate bible thumpers like the Duggers.

These a$$es where skirts and pants when swimming in the ocean or running a marathon. Dumb, idiotic, mother, ooohhh. Stupid, stupid people. God is not punishing anyone or anything for wearing shorts made of running or swimming material!

Anyway I see faith alot like insurance. I rather have even if I may not need it.

Hows that for scumbag thought?

Also all these cool kids who are now Atheist only act the way they do because of the Churches. I believe and worship God in private. Churches want money, they say you have to drive out to them to be forgiven of sin, and the priest get caught raping little boys. You do not have to attend church to have any faith, the Christians slaughtered in droves during the Roman days did not have churches or a central religious leader.

Anyway Religion is a great thing to have, without it we would not have the many of the art, civilizations, or excellent moral compass guidelines we have today. At the same time people abuse faith for their own ends and faith organizations are easily corrupted.

Atheist are just cool, they believe in Science and even tho Science cannot explain MANY THINGS on Earth, Space, or whatever was before Time, the Atheist are correct that their is no God or any higher power(s) even when they themselves cannot prove it.

In the End this sums it up for me.

I agree, people who think they have the right Religion are idiots.

This is true as well. Atheist is a religion in itself. They belive in nothing. Which in itself is a conundrum.

Morpheus sums it best. Bible Thumpers are a$$holes. Atheist are Pu$$!es. Im a straight D!k.

I believe in something greater than myself, and I will **** all you Fanatic Bible Thumpers and Atheist.

I kind of feel like the religion thread on here really could be bumped with all this discussion going on.
But regarding the topic itself I don't have faith in religion because having faith in something means believing in something without evidence. Also being an atheist and someone who lives without religion it not only makes me happy that I live free from it but also I dont have to be constantly shaping my views around a big block of dogma full of rules and regulations that were made thousands of years ago. And yeah I also do think religion largely affects the world in a negative way and I am anti religious for many reasons.
So yeah that is just my little input on the matter since you asked. I am not going to start debating it again if people want to know more fine go ahead and ask but I am not getting into another debate.
Oh and I am not even going to address the moronic drivel spewing from a certain user on here since logic and intelligence seem to be non existent in their posts.
