Lets see some annoying atheist logic pictures and quotes.
Free will, the devil made him do it, blah blah blah, all the standard bul|$h|t.
Party pooper. Show me something funny.
I'm sure someone will be along shortly, unless I took their answer.
I don't get it.
What is it you need help with?
To those who rely on faith for their version of the truth, any logic is annoying.
And we have a winner. Common, give me some photos / quotes.
I just gave the most annoying atheist quote of all.
(Disclaimer: I am not an atheist. But I did stay at a Holiday Inn last night...)
Oh all right...
If your belief is that there is NO GOD. Well, you still have to believe
So much for being an atheist.
Atheism is a lack of a belief in God, or if one prefers/chooses a belief that there is no God. Either way one with such belief or lack of is still an Atheist. So much for your comprehension of the English language.
Atheism is the belief that there is no God. It is an unprovable metaphysical supposition, chosen by the believer to form the matrix in which all of reality is viewed. From that belief, or supposition, logical coralaries must follow. If there is no God, then there is no revelation from God. If there is not revelation from God, then there must logically be no morality. If there is no revelation, no morality, then there is no purpose. If there is no purpose, then there is no meaning. If there is no no purpose there is no hope. That is why Atheism has been often termed, the philosophy of suicide.
This really does need to be in every single thread in this forum doesn't it?
Once again, Atheism is simply the rejection of a God or Gods based on lack of evidence. Not a "belief that there is no God."
IMHO the difference isn't even that subtle.
And the only thing that may make me shoot myself in the head is your inability to understand what Atheism is!!! Not really.
And haven't we been over the morality thingy already?
Twice, for good measure.
You are incorrect, largely because you are leaving out a necessary modifier.
If there is not revelation from God, then there must logically be no morality that was revealed by God.
That does not mean that we, the human race, cannot collectively make our own morality, that is not revealed, but rather, based on what is good for humans, individually and collectively. We can make our own purpose. We don't *need* a metaphysical hope, our entirely mundane hopes and dreams are enough.
Suicide, in the view of someone who believes that there is no life after death, is the self-inflicted end of existence, and is thus highly illogical, rather than being a logical necessity. Much in the same way that murder is a worse crime, because murder is not changing someone's form of existence, but snuffing it out entirely. This can be easily determined by really thinking about the expression "Kill them all and let God sort it out".
I feel kind of sad for you, if you really truly believe that life is hopeless and without meaning unless there's some external entity that proclaims it so.
Theists really REALLY want everyone classified in a believers club. They have a difficult time with the mere definition of the word that absolutely means LACK OF BELIEF IN A DEITY. Their comprehension is that lack of belief in something is a belief in something.
