There are two kinds of people in the world, Atheists and Believers. And let it be known that I have nothing against believers. Atheism is the way for me and many of us and although there are tons of whys and why nots , here is a small projection of our thinking.
Atheism is the belief that there is no God or any Holy Entity. And here’s why.
Atheists do not believe in God. Why? Because they believe in Humanity. Every time disaster strikes, every time there are people dying, God has not once stepped in. Every time there is a cry for help, it is humanity who has rescued the victimized. Humanity has been there for people when they most needed it.
Most people argue that the world is a beautiful place and only God could have created it. They are the same people who believe Global Warming is not a thing and Metal is Satan’s music. When you say the world is beautiful, it is also imperfect. Its not all rainbows and sunflowers, you also have to take in account cancer in newborn children. God didn’t make the world as it is, we did.
Coming to using the word God, I mean the creator. Whichever religion you may follow , your respective creator. Coming to that if all God wanted and has written is for men to be brothers , yet religion divides us, whereas doubt unites us. In war we do not look to God, We look to fellow humans and comrades. In the simplest of terms this is why Atheists are Humanists. They believe in Humanity.
All thinking men are atheists. Progressive and innovative people are atheists. The reason is simple, people who believe in God already have the big questions answered for them. But for the non believers, the answers are not so simple and written on a stone or a book, we are adaptable. We seek the answers for ourselves to satisfy the insatiable hunger of knowledge. We are our own god. These are the people who take us forward, trying to defy everything that says something in the world happens cause some guy in the sky said it would.
We are pliable. We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and our educational system. We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us.
The foremost reason we are atheists is liberty. Most religions , even Christianity has no room for doubt. Doubt is a sin. And are we to be forced into belief without understanding it? Are we to be meant to go with the tide of religion and be oblivious to everything fascinating and strange around us. Even the slightest thought of us being not what we are taught to be is sin. The only thing wanted is intoxication and blindness and an incessant song of preaching playing loud drowning all reason in us.
Most religious people argue against science. Science is fact. It showed us how big the universe is. How there are thousands of millions of places just like this globe. How still could you believe that just one planet among the billions has over 4200 religions with their own Gods. To believers the world is such a small place. The vision is curbed.
God described everywhere is the perfect person creating the perfect world. Yet there is destruction, hunger, war, devastation, racism, sexism, disease, torture, crime and corruption. Something sure is screwed up around here. And with all that religion has done with the world, if there really is a God, Atheism should seem less of an insult to him than Religion.
Religion needs to be enforced on people and people must abide by it. Seems like a pretty unsure thing doesn’t it ? Scientists don’t gather on a day of the week , hold hands and sing “Gravity is real , what must go up , must come down” do they now? If they did, it would seem they were pretty insecure about the concept!
To end it all, If you talk to God sincerely, everyday, you’re a good person, but if God talks to you, You’re a psychopath or a Schizophrenic . Doesn’t that say all you need to know about Belief and Atheism.
