Is this an attempt to discredit atheism?
its an attempt to discredit everything because everything can be used to justify killing, which is just part of animalistic human nature. Every single
one of has the capability to save and to kill.
if were gonna say "religion" is responsible as an entity for all these murders, so let's get rid of it, then same goes for "communism",
"oil"(irag & iran), "greed, lust, hatred, jealousy, money, power, corruption, corporate proxy wars" so lets get rid of all of those.
Yet we don't, and the all singing all dancing BS of the world continues religion or no religion.
Communism/socialism is not atheism. The Red Hoard may "practice" atheism, but it is not the keystone of their doctrine.
never said it was. But just like folks have killed in the name of communism, so to can people kill in the name of Atheism. There's a militant form
atheism that's out there as well, so its either a matter of time before someone kills in the name of atheism or it has happened already. If that has
or does happen, is ATheism to blame? Or is it the ignorance within the human nature of the killer? So soon as someone kills in the name of Atheism
means we should completely get rid of Atheism, to put the shoe on the other foot.
As far as discrediting atheism, I believe it's a paradox. It's a choice to not Believe in what many say is the existence of a God. Yet an atheist
lives his/her entire life based on belief/faith/hope; such as believing they will wake up tommorow to start a new day (although another day alive is
never promised), believing that they will get to work without getting into an accident, etc etc.
The whole realm of existence for a person is entirely reliant on thought/belief/faith(hope), etc. You can't see and don't know what tommorow is, yet
believe you will get tommorow. Paradoxes within paradoxes, though I'll save this one for another thread
