Reminder that religion was BTFO by Russel's Teapot, and Betrand Russel in general

> The whole conception of God is a conception derived from the ancient Oriental despotisms. It is a conception quite unworthy of free men. When you hear people in church debasing themselves and saying that they are miserable sinners, and all the rest of it, it seems contemptible and not worthy of self-respecting human beings.

>here are a great many ways in which, at the present moment, the church, by its insistence upon what it chooses to call morality, inflicts upon all sorts of people undeserved and unnecessary suffering. And of course, as we know, it is in its major part an opponent still of progress and improvement in all the ways that diminish suffering in the world, because it has chosen to label as morality a certain narrow set of rules of conduct which have nothing to do with human happiness; and when you say that this or that ought to be done because it would make for human happiness, they think that has nothing to do with the matter at all. "What has human happiness to do with morals? The object of morals is not to make people happy."

>Love as a relation between men and women was ruined by the desire to make sure of the legitimacy of children.

>The psychology of adultery has been falsified by conventional morals, which assume, in monogamous countries, that attraction to one person cannot coexist with a serious affection for another. Everybody knows that this is untrue.

>The desire to understand the world and the desire to reform it are the two great engines of progress without which human society would stand still or retrogress.

Wew, I don't even know what to say, I thought the same crap when I was 8 years old. Engine of progress? Set of rules of conduct which have nothing to do with human happiness? Just a senile degenerate spouting inane shit.

Humility is good. Recognizing your shortcomings is required to improve. There's nothing miserable about this.

Being God's slave is a blessing. Being a slave to attachments and our vices like many materialistic atheists are and have no intention to ever outgrow is hell to me.

I've been an atheist, anti-theist, and nihilist for most of my life. There's no point in trying to convert me to atheism.
>>
>>273900
I don't know if its solely a slave mentality. Self improvement works best when you are aware of your own strengths and weaknesses. A few things may be out of your control, environment, biology, and luck (luck defined as the outcome of unforeseeable consequences to actions), the rest is there for you to take advantage of or neglect as the individual sees fit.

No. I mean if you had to be a slave, he would probably be the best choice, but man's first and greatest virtue is the ability to rebel. Non Serviam.

Seem's like your will broke and you submitted to an ideology that helps you get from day to day, but has no claim to truth

>but man's first and greatest virtue is the ability to rebel

I agree that it's a great virtue depending on who has it.

>Non Serviam

To worldly things? Of course. To God? Never.

>>273948
>your will broke

Yes.

>submitted to an ideology that helps you get from day to day

Yup.

>but has no claim to truth

Nope. Not sure how you made that conclusion.

To god ESPECIALLY. It's the destiny of the human race to eventually become a godhead.

Anything else is just subservience to a blind god.

What's wrong with that?
>>
>>274511
He likes being happy and affects him directly, so it's more important than whatever moral is and how important it is to civilization for him, even though he doesn't know what moral is. Yeah, only hedonistic positivists and degenerations of that likes him.

Swear to god Nietzsche is the only philosopher these /r/atheism types know of and they probably haven't read a word of his actual texts.
