Someone smart enough to realize that not only is there no god, but that the 'why' question is completely irrelevant. It is rather based on the unfalsifiable assumption that because we as humans can plan and scheme, then so the rest of the universe must also have a 'prime mover' who planned and schemed this world as well (even though to say that there is prime mover would mean that one would need to go into infinite regress). This world view is closely related to the pre-Copernican view that the earth was the center of the universe.
: Look Atheist, I don't care how many facts and figures you throw at me, you still cannot tell me how science can answer the "why?" question.
Atheist: What is the "why?" question?
Theist: Well duh! it's only the most important question in the world! It's about why we are here!
Atheist: Why does that matter?
Theist: Because, it would tell us our purpose in life!
Atheist: Why does that matter?
Theist: Because, why would you live in a world where there is no purpose to what you do? There needs to be something to guide us!
Atheist: So are you saying that instead of figuring that out on your own, you want someone or some"thing" else to tell you what your life is about?
Theist: NO.....I just don't think that anyone would want to live in a world with no purpose
Atheist: Listen Theist, I'm gonna go and have sex with your mom. I'll let you know if I find the answer to that when I get back okay?
When they die, they become the ground... then in that ground grows a tree, which is then cut down by a big sweaty man named bubba, and then they are printed into bibles.
They also believe that if you're Christian (or a member of any other religion), you are always depressed and think that you keep a list of things you can't do on your fridge, they hate Church, don't know that you can sleep in on a Sunday, and are all homophobics. TheAmazingAtheist is their Jesus.
Person One: *Sneezes*
Atheist: When you die nothing happens!
A person who can produce a definition of the word "atheist" without stuffing it full of unsupported supernaturalist propaganda.
An atheist disbelieves in a supernatural entity for which there is neither evidence nor any rationality.
someone who lacks belief in god. some say that science has proven that god does not exist (which is sort of bullshit) and go out of their way to prove it, while others live in tolerance with religious people.
atheist 1: science has PROVEN that god does not exist
christian: really? how?
atheist 1: due to the theory of evolution, i know he isn't there.
christian: well, evolution has more holes in it than a dutch dam made of swiss cheese. and even if evolution is plausible, it still does not mean that there is no divine being.
atheist 1: uh...well...it's on the backs of crystals!!!!
atheist 2: bro...just shut up you intolerant fuck
god does not believe in atheists
A sociological triumph and exposure of truth in which is publicized in modern era.
No longer will the outspoken atheist be called a witch in public view.
I'm confused as to why people get so agressive about this sort of thing. One of the reasons I'm atheist is so that I am free from living my life as a slave to "faiths" that are blind and force-fed to millions.
So, for the religious: stop condemning everyone that disagrees with you. I think it's selfish for many born-into-religion people to automatically assume that out of the thousands of faiths they could have possibly just ASSUME that they have the "right" one.
For the atheists: Don't put out another stereotype for the rest of us to deal with.
Someone else, feel free to convince me why on earth I would ever need faith, except as a security blanket that supplements the lack of personal and mental strength I have as a human being?
You say it's weakness to be atheist, not to be able to "understand" complex concepts about the creation of the universe.
I say, I'm not going to spend my life searching for the meaning of life and instead will go live it, hopefully finding happiness and doing something good for the world.
A person who does not believe that a "god" or supreme being exists. And, although often forgotten, this does include not beliving Satan, also. So, no, we're not Gothic; we just don't have a preference. Some Atheist people may sound arrogant to you, but it is just that they are having trouble understanding why you belive in god, and you are having trouble understanding they don't. They usually don't make a big deal of it, unless you offend them just because you belive otherwise. This is not to be confused with being agnostic, which is a person who is not sure whether a supreme being exists or not.
