I have long argued that it takes a special kind of idiot to believe in a religion! And that such people should be prevented from reproducing.
I recently had a fiery discussion outside a church where i went to convert people away from stupidity and superstition.
I often go to mosks, churches, and other idiot congregations to try to save people and the next generation from stupid superstition. You know this crap about god, jesus, allah, and last but not least that warmongering fucker, mu hammed.
What strikes me is how violent religious people are? within 5 minutes i was receiving death threats, these fizzled out of course when i asked what sort of omnipotent, all seeing, all knowing, all powerful God! needed such a defense? at least from little old me? an unbeliever? and wasn’t murder sort of one of the major sins?
Ordinary people threatening to commit murder for a mere difference of opinion can only happen when religious people are involved.
Usually the religious peoples arguments fall into 3 stupid categories. 1 God is different 2. Because so many believe it must be true 3. what about XYZ
1. God is different
If you believe in god, why not unicorns? fairies? goblins? aren’t they to mythical magical superpower creatures? they are just as much superstition and no more probable or real than that God you believe in?
Of course i didn’t get any good replies, they all shuffled their feet and replied along the lines “ehh god is different its not the same, what you talk about is superstition….” ( religious people always seam offended or irritated when i force them to use their brains to confront their own moronic superstitions, if god is real why the gloomy face? )
This is why religious people piss me off and why their stupid superstitions should be debunked, confronted and decried at every opportunity, its so typical for a religious idiot to fall back on “its different” without ever presenting any proof or even theories as to why their god beleif is different from believing in unicorns.
2. Because so many believe it must be true
Sooner or later in a discussion with religious idiots, you get this argument “people all over the world believe in God! Since so many people believe in it, it must be true!
How stupid are you people? don’t you ever think??? 100 years ago people people all over, believed trolls, it didn’t mean they where real.
That people by nature, are superstitious doesn’t mean that your superstitions are true!
In fact its not hard to think of several theories why superstition would be good for survival as we evolved, hungry predators could hide in the shadows and we where not always at the top of the food chain, if you are skittish and nervous and ready to run or fight you have a better chance of surviving.
3. what about XYZ
I hear this argument or versions of it all the time, yesterday the version was “what about love?”
What about it? what proof do you have that binds love with religion in any way? i cant think of any reason or even probability that our ability to feel love would be conditioned by some text in a book or a fictional mythical creature.
In fact in evolutionary terms love makes perfect sense, we as a species are dependent on family/group relationship to survive, if we didn’t feel this sort of attraction, we wouldn’t mate, we wouldn’t care for our young, and we wouldn’t defend each other against external threats.
Religion is stupid superstition it traumatizes generation after generation, its dangerous (Salem anyone) stupid and hinders human progress, if it hadnt been for free thinking atheists rejecting stupification by repressive religion we would never develop beyond the middle ages. Iran, Taliban, israel and other variations of repressive violent stupid societies would be the norm.
Religion is stupid and dangerous all mass murderers, cults and suicide bombers couldn’t exist without religion to hide behind. If these people where forced to take responsibility for their own lives they would never do what they do.
Free thought and a rejection of stupid ancient superstition is the only way to survive as a species, join the part of the world population that use their brain.
After all have you ever heard of an atheist suicide bomber?
