What's some good music for atheists?
I'm sick and tired of being oppressed by artists such as Sufjan Stevens who constantly shove christian doctrine down the listener's throat.
>completely reasonable conclusion
what you're thinking about is being non-religious, not an atheist. non-religious person looks at religions as at any other social and political phenomena/movements, because that's what religions are.
atheists just swap other religions for what's basically yet another religion with its own rituals - atheism. it's appealing because it lets you say plain childish "f-fuck u mom!" and feel that you're backed by some big and important ideas.
every non theist is an atheist, you might be thinking of the amazing atheist or something or any of those youtube atheists who's entire identity is based around athiesm. Most atheists are simply everyone who's non religious
1. telling EVERYONE that you're an atheist
2. letting EVERYONE know how atheist you are
3. masturbating regularly to your status of euphoric and enlightened gentleman who DOESN'T believe in phony gods unlike those unenlightened masses that believe in phony gods, HA!
These alone are as universal as it gets.
I'm an atheist and I don't do these things, nor was I privy to the fact that these are "universal rituals." Stop being a retard.
What you're actually thinking of are the teenage atheists on reddit. Skeptics outside of that subreddit are embarrassed by that community.
You see, you've done the same thing a lot of anons do. People made fun of reddit atheists comparing them to le fedora man, so you've grown to dislike a philosophical position based on nothing but shitty memes. You are a thoughtless retard and you should consider suicide.
Atheists are technically right though, at least their contempt towards organized religion, which for the most part is brainwash nonesense. The only problem is they're too materialistic, and can't even entertain the idea of any other forces existing out there
They're skeptics, in other words atheists tend to not believe in things that no evidence exists for.In the same way that you reject big foot because of an absence of evidence, atheists reject "other forces,"
>every non theist is an atheist
Correct. But you can't deny that the term "atheist" is nowadays so tarnished by the crowd of fedora shits residing on reddit and youtube it basically became as obnoxious and annoying as all those fags who use it to describe themselves.
That's why I prefer to just go with "non-religious". If you're not anything remotely close to a fedora-wearing caricature of a sane, classic atheist, then you shouldn't have any problem with that and defending them is the last thing you'd be doing right now.
I wouldn't say I'd defend actual autists who are like that, but the whole meme get's used more as an ad hominem than it has anything to do with reality. The whole image of what a fedora neckbeard is, has gotten so bloated and ridiculous, I never meet anyone who fits all these stereotypes
