I’m am atheist. I don’t believe there is a God.
If there turned out to be a God, I would be an anti-theist. Not because I’m sadistic or because I love to dislike things. It’s because I’m optimistic and love humanity.
God either doesn’t care or cannot do more to help.
There are theists that believe God cannot help us. There are theists that believe God doesn’t need to or shouldn’t.
Either way, why be a worshipper?
If God cannot help us, get off your knees. For some reason humanity is still eager to please something just because it can apparantly do things that we cannot. We need to learn more about such beings. Worship doesn’t make any sense when you stand back and replace praising with thinking.
Sadly and statistically, you probably won’t realise this blatant fact before it’s your time to kick the bucket. Your life- wasted for the benefit of someone you have never met- is one you will never have a second chance at. Proud, huh?
If God refuses to help…well, do I even need to state why we shouldn’t respect such a deity?
Apparantly I do.
Why is it so hard to convince people of this? What a tragic way to live life. Can you remember how many times you told your friend to leave that boyfriend that beats and humiliates her? Well, you have the exact same relationship with God.
Keep loving a God that keeps bringing you hardships or at least, doesn’t relieve you of them. What a lovely relationship you have there.
Seriously. I’m very jealous.
You then have moderates that side with the religious community. Sometimes atheists favour the religious, too.
‘Hey! If someone wants to believe in a God that probably wants to see you in hell, let them! Have some respect!’
My doctor has actually prescribed a pillow for my forehead because of all the face palming.
I really wish my reasons for being an atheist would be understood by everyone. Too bad logic is substituted by emotion and thoughtless worship.
