    THE OFFICIAL ATHEIST THREAD


    So after reading so many threads here I noticed you can talk about pretty much anything. So I decided to make this thread so certian ppl with common beliefs can post whatever is on their mind and even rant if they need to.
    Without being told that we are going to hell etc.

    So for your enjoyment here are some pics.

    Classy.. Instead of starting intelligent discussion on your subject, instead you post images attacking religion. Not exactly talking about common beliefs now are you?

    Franklin was not an Atheist; he did not deny the existence of a God; he believed in a God; but his God was the humane conception of Deism and not the God of Christianity. As per his biographer; Parton.

    If we look back into history for the character of the present sects in Christianity, we shall find few that have not in their turns been persecutors, and complainers of persecution. The primitive Christians thought persecution extremely wrong in the pagans, but practiced it on one another. The first Protestants of the Church of England blamed persecution in the Romish Church, but practiced it upon the Puritans. These found it wrong in the bishops, but fell into the same practice themselves both here and in New England.

    Same for Einstein:



    "In view of such harmony in the cosmos which I, with my limited human mind, am able to recognize, there are yet people who say there is no God. But what really makes me angry is that they quote me for the support of such views."

    "I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangements of the books, but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God."

    You are proving that A) you do not know what athiesm truely is, or B) you just do not understand what these people are saying.

    You are quoting only attacks on Christianity, when in fact your subjects believe in other ways.

    "It was, of course, a lie what you read about my religious convictions, a lie which is being systematically repeated. I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it."

    Discussion of your beliefs is fine. Debating your beliefs with others of differeing beliefs is fine. Mocking of either by either is not.

    You're done.
