What is up with Atheism lately?


Anyone else notice how atheism is spreading like a wildfire?  It really feels like some new cool trend to be an atheist and attack any religious beliefs as being rediculous.  

They say that religion is a plague that needs to be removed.  I can't help but look at what atheism is doing and promoting, and say that atheism is going to exactly fill the same gap once they have finished gouging any spiritual beliefs out.  I sware they have effectively become what they are trying to kill.  They are a belief system, with no more facts behind it then most spiritual beliefs, and they move and operate much like a religion does when a new religion enters a new area that has a preestablished belief system already in play.  They demonize their gods, destroy their tradition or take them over, then spit out whats left calling it evil.  Some examples; god is a fairy tale that is brainwashing people, religion is the cause of all the major conflicts in the world and we would be far better off without them, and they have been trying to push to remove God from the pledge of allegiance and from the dollar bill as well as some other stuff, not to mention the personal attacks the religious have been suffering from the atheist.

 

I have no real problem with atheism.  It just bothers me that the more this fire grows, the more hypocrisy i see coming from them.  Ironically, Intelligent design is a simpler explanation for both the origins of the world, and life, and accounts for the most variables.  But they refuse to accept it because intelligence in the universe must mean god, and god must be some old man with a robe and throne that like chaos and unquestioning obedience.  I think we are stuck in stereotypes, and our knowledge of God should grow with our general knowledge, not in spite of it.

Just my thoughts on the matter.  And some venting.

The choice between atheism & religion, is an overbearing & false choice. What if I choose subjective experience; what if I choose agnosticism, or even better solipsism. There are many ways to interpret existence...or to not interpret it.

Everyone seems to make up stories which they attempt to validate at the expense of anotherno

I choose to behold the glory of myself, for myself, & by myselfbiggrin

I think it's really simple. Less needs is less bother from either side of the coin aww.

I'd like to be fully satisfied regardless of any space or system aww.

Don't you promote abolishing the ego though?

The reason why it's spreading like that is that IT IS a new trend. Ever been to 9gag or any other pages like that? It's like a virus, one starts and it spreads. People think its cool and what not.

On my own opinion, i won't side with anything. I seek for the truth, from everywhere and everything, not just from a single group.

i grew up in a religious orthodox(similar to catholic) christian family. used to be very religious, honestly used to cry when i prayed. was very faithfull. now after many, many things that happened in my life, i really feel like proper killing every faithful man in the world. the most severe conflicts and the most conflicts ever have all been caused becuase of religion. because of religion many peopl have died not only in war. and because of religion i have to live in this stupid religious world. i try to ignore, but honestly this FING virus is everywhere, and its impossible to ignore. people wake up, all religions where made to control us. there is people who are ready to give their lives for what a pope, or a prophet or what a high priest says. stupid. and anyways if there is anything like that, one being, one counsiouness that created us that for sure HE DOESNT WANT US TO WORSHIP IT. why on earth would a creator of this whole universe want us to worship him, give him respect, and everything that we do in our lives to be done in his name? really just think about it.

anyways i hate ALL religions, i will never change this opinion, however i understand im a minority, one of the single people in the world who is aware of what is happening and that im surrounded my many walking zombies who forgot how to love themselves and others. therefore i shut my mouth. i dont feel like showing off. im 16 and i go to school, in RE(religious educations-made compulsory by the gov.) i sometimes feel like getting up and shouting at those idiots, there is NO GOD. but why should i do that? even if i did that i will just cause a bigger headache for me. there will just keep arguing like zombies. for all those that have the same opinion, next SHUT UP, just tell people u dont believe in god and avoid the subject, u know if u try to convince them to be like you or anything like will just cause more conflict. my opinion.

I like to think that everyone has the option of what to believe in. If it makes one happy, then there's nothing wrong with it. I respect people with strong faith, because I sometimes lack faith (whether it's faith in my path, faith in my progress, abilities, etc).

Faith is powerful, so it's wise to have faith in something that fuels progress.

the most severe conflicts and the most conflicts ever have all been caused becuase of religion.

That's actually not true. In the past two centuries alone, more wars and genocide has been committed under the reign of atheists.

What is a FING virus?

all religions where made to control us.

That's not true either. Many are meant to free us, spiritually, mentally and emotionally. Paganism at its roots has this element, Buddhism and even Christianity. Since I think you are referring to Christianity here, it promotes love and peace. However, I do recognize that religion in society has been warped in an effort to control the masses, as those in power have recognized it's influence. Some take what has been changed as truth, these changes promote divisions, and those few act fervently on these proposed divisions.

there is people who are ready to give their lives for what a pope, or a prophet or what a high priest says.

There are also people willing to die for a piece of paper. Namely, the constitution. But, is what it represents worth dying for? That's for them to decide.

HE DOESNT WANT US TO WORSHIP IT.

You're probably right here. Why would god need or even want us to worship him/her/it? I'm sure he/she/it cares more about what you actually do in life, then whether or not those actions were dedicated to him.

im surrounded my many walking zombies who forgot how to love themselves and others.

This is not religions fault, per se. But of the people. There are many christians who are so, in name only. They were christians because their parents were christians, or their friends, and nothing more. When they do bad deeds recklessly, they are not practicing christians. Atheists, then like to take all those bad deed, pile them up and set them at the feet of the religion the person belonged to, and not the people who committed them. This is a cheap tactic to poke at the religions that they don't like. And frankly, is not fair. If you want a different example of this, read my first quote.

i sometimes feel like getting up and shouting at those idiots, there is NO GOD

There is more evidence that there is something, rather than nothing.

u know if u try to convince them to be like you or anything like will just cause more conflict.

This occurs on both sides of the debate. Atheists will argue against, christians for, etc. It's not so one sided. Not only is the religious debates getting more aggressive, but this is also occurring in politics as well very heavily. Left and right are very at odds right now, both sides being very stubborn with the other. This occurring almost everywhere in society at the moment, so i think that there is more to it.

This is mostly my opinion though, so...
