The only label I need is secular humanist.
Atheism is getting boring I'm considering paganism or buddhism
Also, in the middle ages, wasn't it the catholics/monetaries who helped preserve and copy books for future generations? Without them, we would not be as well off as we are now. So don't throw me that "religion holds us back" bullshit, it's not entirely true.
There really is no denying that all religions have their crazy fucktards, whether you like it or not. They are all the damn same.
I'm an atheist-leaning agnostic since I personally couldn't give two shits about religion in general. If there's no god then welp whatever, and if there is one I hope he's nice enough not to damn me to hell or something because I didn't go to church on sundays.
It's absolutely possible to prove that there are no unicorns or sprats in my garden, because parameters of the unicorns and sprats are more or less known (they are material, they are visible, they reflect light, they have mass et cetera). Now, when it comes to gods, or at least some of them there is almost absolute lack of parameters which are measurable by our current apparatus. You can only use common sence and logic which can tell you that existance of an entity with mentioned parameters should be impossible. Thus the safest assumption is the one presented by the atheising agnosticism.
Humans can think beyond what is "logical". I pity those who restrict themselves from doing so.
Ok, screenshot taken. Now I have a proof that Fallowfox can lower himself to cheap demagoguery too.
You can think however you want, but Atheist or Theist, don't you dare use your personal belief to spread hate and violence. All I have seen from Fallow and CaptainCool in this thread is the two of them spreading the same intolerance that they pretend to be crusading against.
I'm not inciting violence in anybody, and people can think however they want. Some of those ways of thinking, for example racist attitudes, or beliefs that vast numbers of people deserve to be tortured for eternity for not failing to worship the right deity, do deserve to be hated though. Views like that shouldn't be tolerated, we should voice our criticism of them.
Similarly objectively wrong views should not be tolerated when they are professed, especially in professional circles. If a person thinks rubbing kyanite on their skin or taking homeopathic medicine will heal their cancer, this view should receive sharp criticism.
Oh please. Stop pretending that every religious person thinks that way and that it is grounds for abolishing all religion. Religion is most often times not the culprit in these cases. Its individuals wanting to push an agenda, power over others or material possessions, cloaking their own agendas under the guise of religious doctrine. As it has already been said in this thread, even if religion were abolished then people would find other excuses to act horribly to one another.
I never argued that we have a grounds for abolishing religion. I think that banning people from having magical views would be oppressive, even if I can demonstrate those views are categorically incorrect.
I think I do have a right to show why those magical beliefs are wrong though.
I don't understand why anyone would want to butt into anyone's personal life just to argue with them over beliefs, but indeed that is your right.
Pfff, infidels. You'll never experience the joy of feasting at the Svarogs' table!
Why do I feel like you only exist for conflict, Melodram Patheticus
It always amazes me how religion can be so dominant and widespread, so influential and imposing, yet can declare oppression whenever it's criticised.
