Muzolf made a seriously funny post here “how the creationists are right, evolution is wrong and my conversion to religion” part 1 and part 2. This post inspired me to make this posting. I don’t have Muzolfs sharp witty tone, so i try to make up by being a lot more annoying.
I was thinking about a common statement religious people frequently make “i cant imagine a life without god”, or “my life is better with (insert faith). In the past i have often argued against this by pointing out that they are probably wrong because xyz.. but i realize this is the wrong approach.
A comparative query is better i think, then the dimwitted religious hordes can do their best to argue against themselves.
If you take two people, one atheist and one religious. Then examine their fundamental life perspective and evaluate who is more likely to live life to the fullest? who will have the best life?
Who will live a life filled with most contentment, love, satisfaction, pleasure, and joy?
If we begin with the religious mind, look at the little meaningless restrictions religious leaders and religious followers place on themselves. Such as for example sexual abstinence, or twisting the value of knowledge like the scientific fact of evolution is bad, lets scare the children with suffering in our imaginary hell instead!
Who the hell in their right minds makes a choice for the latter? I wonder if religious morons trade their sanity with the lie of potentially reaching heaven after death? because when seen through the lense of getting to heaven some of religious dogma can almost make sence.
Religious people live their life a little like if it was a video game and if they fail they have an extra guy/life that will spawn once they die.
Now an Atheist knows that when the chemical computer that we call our own consciousness shuts down that is it, end of the line. Therefor an Atheist will cram their life full since they know. That this brief spark of consciousness is only temporary and you better make the most of it while you can.
Now all things being considered who do you think will live a better life?
– The religious person who places all kinds of restrictions on themselves on the ridiculous notion that they will have a chance to do it better in the “next round”?
– The Atheist that knows that this is the only time he or she has so they better make it count…
I guess you have to be as stupid as a religious person not to see that one.
