    It’s overly simplified, and obviously not made by anyone in the field of psychology*, but it is sure to provoke some reactions. Fear of ______, is the biggest thing that leads to susceptibility of religion, etc. Fear of no afterlife, fear of being in an uncaring world, fear of not being the center of the universe, and so on. What Nietzsche referred to as, “Staring into the Abyss.” Some of the world’s most educated men were born into religion, and continue to support it to this day. Now, obviously the dark ages, when religion ruled Europe, technology was sent back… Read more »

    Mommy what’s coming out of that man’s mouth? Erm…well son it looks like bullshit but I can see through it. Its like some kind of transparent bullshit. Hey professor asshat, until science finds a reason for life, a creator of life, and an answer to what happens when people die that can be definitively proven and repeated then religion will always be around and the only thing childish around here is judgmental, pompous, comically uninformed motherfuckers like you. I don’t give two monkey shits about religion. I don’t even have one of those. What I do care about are the… Read more »

    I like how you assume there’s a reason for – and a creator of – life.

    Oh no, you don’t come off as a total jerkwad. Not at all.

    Hey look at the pretentious twit without anything real to say backing up the pretentious twit who opined so eloquently and said nothing.

    My dick. Suck it raw prease.

    Religious people respond to reason as much as science focused people respond to hope.

    Both have their merits. I personally have never heard of a junkie coming back from the edge because he found science.

    Don’t worry about Blondie/Maggie. He gets pissed when people have opinions that he can’t immediately understand, or if they contradict his prejudices.

    ya cause there was even a point in there to comprehend…?

    I made a point out of his nothing. My point is people who regurgitate grade 10 level logic analysis as though they’re PHD wielding authorities on anything are annoying. That annoyed you. 3 guesses as to why.

    😐

    Vrik

    Yeah, cause there was even a point in there to comprehend?

    I made a point out of Blondie’s nothing. My point is people who regurgitate grade 3 level illogical analysis as though they’re theology authorities on anything are annoying. That annoyed you. 3 guesses as to why.

    TrAyVon'S GhOSt, nuCca

    lol

    a) illogical analysis? You’re a retard
    b) theology authority? Point to where in my post I even skimmed near anything close to that.

    The bullshitter who bullshitted to back his fellow bullshitter is full of shit and his bullshit he’s using to try and back his other bullshit is in fact just bullshit and the only person who doesn’t see his bullshit as bullshit is he himself the bullshitter.

    I like how you still haven’t responded to my second comment to your first post.
    Besides, what is “hope” other than a human emotion? And emotions are nothing but electrochemical process patterns either determined by evolution or our immediate environment.

    Other than that, the rest of your original post is just hate-filled gibberish.
    “Waaa! Waaaa! Someone is wrong(imo) on the internet! Waaa!”

Fantastic sidewalk definition of emotion btw. I bet your band is awesome. lol Go back to school so you don’t come off like such a twat. You have succeeded in… Read more »

    Vrik, you are using words that are far too long for maggie.

    Poor guy, he doesn’t understand that his attempted smartassery is just a tangle of nerves, shuttling electrons about, wishing that they hadn’t been stuck with that pesky extra chromosome…

    Vrik

    Besides, it’s not like religious people give a shit about all the things already proven and repeated ad nauseam.

    Hi mAgnUS BUTTfersoon/Blondie.

    I love you too, but I think we should start seeing other people. You’re too clingy, and overly emotional. It’s not healthy for either of us.

    Sincerely,
    ~Me.

    TrAyVon'S GhOSt, nuCca

    That sucked.

    And was about as original as anything else you’ve barfed back out on here.

    Ever had a thought that was your own?

    Honestly…I don’t think you have. That was painful to read. Because I could just picture some rack of fa g laughing to himself after he typed it. ‘Everyone will see how clever I am now!’ you thought.

    And you were wrong. You just backed up my initial point. You’re a festering puddle of discarded douche.

    Another meh for Maggie.

    We all have a fear of the unknown and are largely ignorant of the world around us. While these things certainly contribute to how susceptible we are to accepting false claims it is misleading to draw a line and runs the risk of contributing to the generally unnecessary and counterproductive Us v. Them mentality.

    As for poor critical thinking skills, I completely agree. People need to learn them early and use them much more often.

    nyoki

    We are? We do? Interesting…not.

    Excellent contribution as always, nyokki.

    Good to know that the trolls don’t go hungry around here, but be careful… some the troll-ees seem ill-tempered.

    Why do people get so irate over mythology?

    NoOneInParticular

    I’d like to remind folks that atheism is a religion. Now fit that into the chart. 🙂

    nyoki

    No it’s not, you freaking moron! They’re not even an organization. African politics is more organized than atheists.

    TheLotusEater725

    I’d say atheism is an organization of sorts.

    TheLotusEater725

    You mean to tell me that groups of atheists advancing an atheist based agenda means that atheism is not an organized movement of sorts? I mean seriously? Ok then by that logic christianity is not organized and has no agenda either. Just because christians believe that there is a god and get together in various groups and discuss/encourage eachother and use their views as a basis for dictating actions in the world doesn’t mean that it is a religion. That makes perfect sense.

    nyoki

    I would say that those that do so do not understand the concept of atheism.

    jesupocalypse

    No, it isn’t.

    NoOneInParticular

    Shows how dumb most atheists are – atheism is a recognized religion in nearly every country in the world. It’s a more recognized religion than Scientology.

    greytone

    Atheism is the lack of belief in a god or gods. In my opinion this does not make a religion. It is certainly a religious classification. There are indeed groups of atheists who have come together to form organizations. Most commonly just to have a community or for political input. There is no doctrine, dogma, or agenda that defines atheism. There may be philosophies popular among atheists, such as materialism, naturalism, or humanism. But in and of itself it is simply an answer to a single question. “Do you believe in a god?” In my opinion this does not make… Read more »
