Atheism vs. Christianity
This isn’t a new video by any means, but it is something I’d like to address.
There’s a common misunderstanding among theists about atheism. The quote on the right is a good representation of what the average theist thinks atheism is. It’s only a wonder they don’t buy into it.
This of course is not at all what atheists believe. There’s nothing “magically” done according to scientists or any rational thinker. The same however, can not be said for theists. The irony about the quote is that they suggest that something happening “magically” is just stupid, but when God does it, it’s okay.
In the video they talk about the death count from Atheism. They suggest that only 2000 people in the history of mankind were killed in the name of religion and that “it happened a long time ago” (as if that makes a difference).
Now, I could go into the death talley and show how religion wins out on the death toll count many times over, but it’s more than that.
Religion is bad because the ideas are bad. They say, “Hey… don’t worry about messing this life up, there’s another one after this.” They teach that you should spend this life preparing for the next. If you honestly believe that, you have diminished this life. You are NOT living life to it’s fullest.
Religion is a bad idea because it claims to draw it’s morals from this God, This God who (according to their book) believes in all manner of atrocities. When a religious person does something good, it’s to gain favor with this God, not just because it’s a good thing, as Atheists do. They live their life repressed and in servitude. This is no way to live.
Religion is bad because it cheapens the true awesomeness of the world we live in by trying to explain it with man made myths. The biblical story of creation absolutely pales in comparison to the true story of how our universe started.
Does atheism have all the answers to life’s mysteries? No. But neither does religion, despite what it claims.
