Sometimes the best answer is a simple yes or no.
Well, with you it's already obvious by your post history.
the question was very relevant, you can keep Darwin but Einstein is a man of respect and humility.
And non-theism. No matter how many quotes you shove down his throat, Einstein didn't believe in a deity. The closest thing he had to a religion was
his wonder for the universe.
of course you mean the World right ? there is not much reference, if I am not mistaken in most religious dialogue about the actual Universe.
Most religious people claim that the all-powerful being of the universe intervened in affairs on this planet, out of all the planets in the universe.
In one religion, the deity chose to come and live on this planet by impregnating a random woman in the Palestinian region with himself....
That's an overemphasis of the import of humanity.
Most atheists are just as nice as most people in any other group of people. We're also statistically less likely to commit crimes and more
likely to maintain stable marriages.
mkay, maybe that is off line or in some fantasy world which does not exist except in the mind of the true atheist.
Yay, random dismissal of my statement! Can you provide any evidence that atheists are more arrogant, mean, nasty, etc than any other group of people?
And this is the internet, everyone is a bit more arrogant, mean, nasty, etc in general.
Don't stereotype a group of people.
just making a general observation of what I have seen over my years on the internet.
...so you're judging a whole group of people based on a small sample size...
That is the definition
of a stereotype. It's even worse because it's not something found in the sample. The atheist community on here isn't
particularly arrogant about it.
In my opinion and the overwhelming observations made by others,
Sure, but that's your baseless opinion
. Now, if you can provide supporting evidence I'll actually take your claim a bit seriously.
Atheist are quite the fundamentalist and usually exhibit more of these tendencies than a person or peoples who have chosen a God and decide to
dedicate their life to... well... life and love instead of hate and belittlement.
Ah, so theists devote their lives to life and love while atheists devote their lives to hate and belittlement. Thanks for clearing that up. I thought
I had devoted my life to truth, beauty, love, and discovery, guess I was wrong.
I even find it quite ironic that you're saying that in a hateful thread
most Atheist are extremely arrogant and imo also they need humility and respect if that group ever wants other normal people to take them seriously.
Well, you can shout your opinion to the hills till the cows come home, but you're going ot have to provide evidence
that they don't have any
humility or respect.
They just are not doing a very good job of convincing people and in fact are doing the exact opposite and pushing people away from their group of self
Hey look, more stereotyping of atheists! Since when is not believing in a deity
equivalent to self worship
Oh, and we're doing a pretty damn good job in the Western world where atheism is the fastest growing religious group.
I have to give it to them though... since they think they can usher in a new humanity where people inherently have respect for eachother ect, ect, but
of course this said 'group' can not take it back far enough to figure out where they got these morals from they so covet in the first place.
...philosophers? I mean, most atheists take morality as a philosophical thing.
I also have a tendency to believe Atheist have a lower IQ
Well, there's the proof of your bigotry and proof that you've not actually looked at any data.
Recently they found that three factors are linked to higher IQs in males: Atheism, Liberalism, and sexual exclusivity.
Hey, I'm a liberal, atheist, sexually exclusive male!
There have also been many studies that show
that there is an inverse relationship between the average IQ of a nation and its religiosity
Here's an article from Psychology Today that
basically just takes it as fact that atheists score better on IQ tests.
and lack vision and are unwilling to communicate or accept anyone who does not conform to their system of belief.
Like all of the claims you've made so far:
