>people who have ashtrays get cancer That's why they emphasize correlation is not causation in schools. Just like atheism didn't hold back progress in North Korea, The Chruch in the middle ages also didn't hold back any progress... Wait, it literally did through burning free-thinkers at the stake.
>>7789131 NK actually has a lights out policy though. It is part of their culture and more specifically part of their way of hiding information for military purposes. The entire place is like one big air raid zone.

You don't go to an American school I see.
>>7789192 You mean after they burned everyone at the stake who practiced "witch craft" they became the leaders in .... "witch craft"? Surprise. Science was so dangerous to them that they vilified it, adopted it fully, and made damn sure no one else was using it.
Other than Dawkins, i have no idea who the new atheists are, and i only know who Dawkins is because i am continuously accused of worshipping him ( i have never read his books, or seen anything with him in ).
Nietzsche on the other hand, is a guy i am very much behind. And if you insult Nietzsche i will shit on your grave.
Disbelieving in God leaves a God-shaped hole in your heart. When you have that big of a hole, you'll eventually replace it with something. People in North Korea have replaced it with communism and Dear Leader, and you can see the results...
Even if you don't believe in God (which is foolish -- evidence for God, and specifically Jesus Christ, is in our DNA), you have to admit that you're lacking something. Or maybe you've already filled that hole with racism, anime, or something else...
>>7790034 Or, you know, it's the other way around... people who can't find what they want out of life, because they are dysfunctional, turn to the nearest idiot who is all too eager to tell them that a man in the sky loves them.
Just yesterday, for my father's birthday I attended a big religious group meeting. When they started praying and all that shit I quitely left the room to sit just outside and keep reading my book and not 10 minutes from that, a group of christians had gathered around me to convince me to go in.
A lot of different half-arguments and fallacies were said but what is really shitty is that they started assuming that I had a shitty life.
One girl told me : 'I understand. My parents would smoke and abuse me and I lost my belief and starting cutting...'. There I stopped her and said that my parents were good people and that I was in general, satisfied with every aspect of my life.
Other two girls said the same about their ex-alcoholic parents and I too had to stop them to tell them that there was nothing like that happening to me.
Then, a grown up fucking adult. As in 40 - 50 years old, told me 'You were bullied in school right?', 'Do you smoke and go to parties right?', 'You must have shitty parents, right?'
Pretty much they all started projecting at me and I had to shut all of them up individually because even after I told everyone that I was content, the next faggot would come in telling me his sob story.
My conclusion is that all religious people are just really fucking depressed and angered at their past and their families and for some reason they project their insecurities in non-believers.
>>7790248 >full of yourself I don't believe in their god. I have no reason to stay there. I immediately came back after they resumed the non-religious activities.
>left your family alone Not quite like that. This is some kind of 'business-man' group and all the adult members went into one room with their wives, and the sons and other descendants went into another room. This was for some shit activity were the parents would write a secret letter to their kids and give it to them at the end of the event.
Basically, I was alone there so I just went outside. And, in about 3 hours I got bored of just reading so I went in the other room and sat with my parents.
Anyways, it was a really shitty activity. It was obviously targetted at young christians so they would make you stand up, dance and sing along to those shitty christian rock songs and I was tired of it. I could not read with all that shit going on.
>>7790248 Not that guy, but maybe it's just more respectful to leave them to do their thing, instead of sitting there doing something else right in front of them like reading a book. That would seem the more douchey of the two options to me.
>>7789351 >>7789485 Seriously? Have you never studied religious history at all? I don't mean what their religious books say, but actual historical facts. It is all about totalitarian control of the populace. What they could not snuff out and eradicate they integrated and made their own.
Let me guess, you both attended Southern US schools?
