God alone has the right to take innocent life, man doesn't. This is why in Christian societies taking a life without just cause is punished severely, but taking a life justly is not. Therefore there is a massive difference between God taking life and humans annihilating innocent children before the children even have a chance to defend themselves.

Life isn't supposed to be easy, or fair. But what comes at the end of life for those who remained faithful is a reward so grand.

We must also struggle through the often unfair tribulations of life to win the grand prize.

Holding on to this idea that somehow fairness is a good thing is foolish I think, fairness only ever created weakness.

The newest generation has higher church attendance than baby boomers.
"Bible Bashers" are the Evangelical Protestants I spoke about.
You trying to guess the pope's motives for his political values is just that: A guess.

Christianity has been dying out in Europe for some time. However, worldwide, Christianity and Islam are growing. Likewise, while religious "nones" are growing in Europe the number is still lowering worldwide.

http://www.pewforum.org/2015/04/02/religious-projections-2010-2050/

Between denominations, moderate Protestantism is dying out but Evangelical Christianity and Catholicism are growing.

http://www.worldreligionnews.com/issues/is-the-catholic-church-experiencing-exponential-growth-or-declining

However, with the growing popularity of nationalism in the west also comes a generation swinging towards honest religiousness.

And a utilitarian view such as your own is a foolish one that will never succeed and be a waste of your time and hold you from greater religious discourse. Stick with what you think is true. If you are a naturalist (the ideology most western atheists have) then promote naturalism.

Seeking useful lies for your own gain is not a far shot away from that nihilism, though you are trying to escape it. There is virtue in the search for truth. Do not fool yourself because it will not play out in your life and you will not fool others.

We can fix so many of our own problems so why must God do it for us? He already gave us such a fantastic gift - life - and he's not even judged us yet, so why do you think He owes us anything more?

It's died down because the left became the mainstream position. It has no one to oppose of any power anymore so the militant portion is not needed.

I'm atheist but these days we can afford to be charitable and recognize the value religion brings to society, especially in the face of the degeneracy and spiritually bereft communism the left wants as the ruling class.

Even as an atheist I can recognize a spiritual need in people to believe in something greater than themselves, and the left have nothing constructive to offer in that regard.

The opposite is ironically true. All the non-arguments for abortion ultimately end with idiots making the false claim that abortion is murder.

That's a good joke.
Abortion as a right came from the rejection of the unborn as having rights. By arguing the unborn as having rights, the point is defeated. And by any judgement on either side the place in which they would gain personhood (gain rights) is before birth occurs. The issue then is one will base it off of performance and one will base it off of the type of thing they are and its ability.

Honestly, "humans have human rights" is much easier and effective to argue for than "humans who can do ____ have human rights".

You have said nothing against my comment by defining obvious terms and referencing your atheism. I know the definition of atheism and how it has changed throughout recent history.

The theists would believe in purpose in nature, which is the polar opposite of nihilism. As such, you are factually wrong.
Your understanding of Christianity is an Evangelical Protestant's one. That's nothing new. Mainstream atheists are often reactions to Evangelicalism and think of Christianity as a whole in Evangelical or Protestant terms.

God wants you to be "religious" in the sense of treating your wife with respect, be a productive member of society, use fair and righteous judgement, and love concepts like mercy and forgiveness, while also not forgetting about truth, righteousness, and holiness.

>False. A Woman has the natural and inalienable right to decide for herself (self determination) whether she will bear children nor not.

No, the judgement of Roe v. Wade came about BECAUSE they found the unborn had no rights and so the state had no vested interest in the privacy of the woman. That's how Roe v. Wade occurred.

Under no system of establishing objective rights does abortion end up being a right. Women have the right to decide if she will have children but that isn't a decision handled after pregnant. There are justifying legalizing killing other humans.

>The unborn what?

The unborn humans. Humans in the earliest stages of their life. The development of human life from conception onward is well-documented in the sciences.

Women have no rights to kill other humans.

>>
>>140116642
>The theists would believe in purpose in nature, which is the polar opposite of nihilism.
You apparently don't understand the concept of nihilism.

People who don't understand what atheism is, nor can they grasp what nihilism is, tend to believe the two might be related

Nihilism generally is considered in two forms:

(1) Existential nihilism, which argues that life is without objective meaning, purpose, or intrinsic value, or
(2) Moral nihilists, who assert that morality does not inherently exist, and that any established moral values are abstractly contrived.

(1) Existential nihilism - Write this down. Nihilism does not say that life has NO meaning, it says says that life has no "objective" meaning.

Life has relative and subjective meaning. An atheist's life has far more meaning to him because it is the only life he has. He knows it is up to him to make purpose for himself, not wait for some deity to hand it to him or decide his "destiny". On the other hand, a theist cares nothing for this life and couldn't care less if the world is destroyed as long as he gets his imaginary "afterlife".

So the evidence completely contradicts the hsyteria of theists who claim nilhilism #1.

(2) Moral nihilism - Theists will tell you that their morals are "objective" but they're lying. They will admit that ordinary men wrote down their morals in their books, but then they will claim - without any proof - that those men were "inspired" by some supernatural being. That part you just have to take on "faith", and then they run off to drown witches, whip slaves or torture and perscute atheists.
continued
>>
>>140116642 continued

But it's OK that all morals are relative. The Bible has rules about selling your daughter into slavery (Exodus 21:7). Abraham married his sister and had sex with her slaves - not a problem. Christians used to own slaves and mistreat them, not a problem - they were slaves, after all. That probably was an important thing for the Semitic peoples who sold even their family members for money, but it's abhorent now. If there was really one god, the simplest explanation is that there would be one religion. But since there have been thousands of gods and religions and hundreds of different morals, the spread is yet another kind of moral relativity.
Morality is a man-made concept. Men invent rules, then men fabricate "gods" to enforce the rules. That's been the unwavering constant of all made-up gods in history. This also reinforces the idea of nihilism #2. Ask any theist if he believes in Zeus and the Ancient Greek morals. When he says no, then he proves that the theists are the #2 nihilists. What relative religious moral system you adhere to is far more closely related to where you are born and what gods you were forced to serve at the time.

The opposite is true. Satan has to ask God's permission to do anything, he has access to the heavenly realm so he can be hurl accusations at the saints. God sets the rules of engagement, what happens, and how it happens.

The Globalists want to institute Atheism because Atheism has turned most people into moral relativists, leftards, narcissists, degenerates and amoral idiots. It is very easy to manipulate Atheists because they reject absolute morals and only believe what the modern day jew propaganda machine hurls at them, Atheists are so deluded that they believe they are smarter than everyone around them but at the same time all the ideologies that are destroying society such as feminism, political correctness, moral relativism, sexual immorality, materialism were all instituted by God hating Atheists.

Atheists only harp about science only in their attempts to disprove God, Atheists do not have an innate love for science, they only want to seem cool and edgy whenever they proselytize science.

Science is simply a process of understanding the intricacies of nature and it is the main tool in increasing our knowledge and understanding the universe around us, but when you turn it into a religion and use it to replace God then it becomes an issue.

Atheists love to take the moral high ground against God but they rely on their delusional understanding and their vacuous narcissism to promulgate their accusations against God. Since most of them don't understand the Bible their arguments are nothing.

Atheists don't believe in personal responsibility which is why they blame the evils of mankind on God, its akin to children blaming their parents whenever they pee on their mattress.

to answer your stupid question the Lord warned the people to repent of their sins and to turn from their wickedness but they chose not to listen, I'm assuming your picture is referencing the great flood, if you read the Bible which I know for a fact you haven't the world was full of wickedness, God sent out prophets to warn the people to stop being so wicked but they wouldn't listen, so that is why he destroyed the world, its that simple, the people chose not to listen so they had to suffer the consequences.

>No, by definition it's a philosophy. You merely took the definition of ideology and tried to stretch it to make it fit your poor interpretation.

Naturalism fits the definition I provided by Oxford Dictionary. If you want to parse philosophy and ideology in the "one you study, one you learn" that still doesn't help your case as naturalism IS a belief with justification and is taught so people can learn. In no sense is it not an ideology. But ideologies aren't bad either so I have no idea why you're fighting about semantics.

>The definition hasn't changed at all. The people trying to distort the definition have failed miserably and repeatedly, but the definition is still the same as it always was.


Throughout all of western history until the 18th century, atheism was a derogatory term for the immoral. This is why 'atheist' and 'pagan' were terms thrown at theists to other theists. The term stems from 'atheos' which referred to 'godlessness' or immorality. In the 18th century in western Europe is became a term for people who reject deities existing. In the 20th century the term became an absence of belief in deities. Likewise, agnosticism began as a philosophical point that we are incapable to know either way about God, then became an "I don't know" answer to deities, and then eventually a sub-category within atheism and theism to denote attachment via knowledge.

You have no idea what you're talking about to say "it is the same as it always was".

>(1) Existential nihilism, which argues that life is without objective meaning, purpose, or intrinsic value, or

Ancient theists believed in teleological systems. Innate goal-directedness in nature. This is the basis of meaning and purpose. This tradition is still shown in the traditional denominations' theology at times. Modern theists understand it in a theistic personalist sense where despite lacking goal-directedness, the creator of it all created it and guides actions with intent.

Theism - especially in the west - explicitly is opposed to existential nihilism. In your argument you make the claim that the atheist life has far more meaning but this is subjective meaning and not objective like the theist's and so the atheist is EXPLICITLY not having objective meaning, purpose, and value but having subjective.

By your view, the atheist is the nihilist. The theist is not. But you characterize atheism poorly by assuming views besides lacking theism. An atheist can belief in a teleological system or an afterlife or whatever else. Just not deities.

(2) Moral nihilists, who assert that morality does not inherently exist, and that any established moral values are abstractly contrived.

All Christian churches of all denominations teach that God's Moral Law is innate to people. This is objective, innate, morality.

In no way are theists ever nihilists. Atheists can be, but aren't necessarily. However you ARE a nihilist.

False again. The woman has a self-evident, objective, self-determination right to decide if she will bear children or not. That fact that it is a natural and inalienable right supersedes your specious opinions otherwise.

> Women have the right to decide if she will have children
Wait, what? OK well I'm glad you've come to your senses at least.

Moving the goalposts was a nice touch, but even when pregnant, the decision and rights remain with the living person, not the fetus.

The earliest stages of its rights doesn't begin until the fetus is viable, i.e. can live on its own outside the womb

i have began to read the read and study the scriptures ever since i was 7, i have served as an acolyte for over 5 years attending church over 3 times a week
i even did 2 years in a theological seminary because when i was young and stupid i wanted to become a priest
since then i have studied the torah and related judaistic scriptures as well as elder canaanite cults and religions, just to get more background on christianity

i don't understand why someone like you would even call himself a christian, considering you are clearly not interested in the actual biblical teachings and don't follow its rules
ironically you have more in common with muslim whom you so vehemently hate, than bible obiding christians

religion doesn't work like that, you can't just cherry pick the rules you like and follow them while ignoring a million others

>state I'm wrong
>repeats your claims without argument

Tell me when you can cite on what grounds you assert your claim.

>Moving the goalposts was a nice touch, but even when pregnant, the decision and rights remain with the living person, not the fetus.

No one has the rights to take away the right of others. This is not a moving of goalposts, this is a clarification. Your original claim "women have the right to decide if she will have children"is vague, given that she already has offspring in her womb by the time of abortion and you're trying to make this about abortion. Your claim makes no reference to them being born or unborn and so your claim would allow women to kill their infant children years down the line if they wish.

Surely you don't mean this so I clarify terms.

>The earliest stages of its rights doesn't begin until the fetus is viable, i.e. can live on its own outside the womb

Why are you only providing humans rights then? On what grounds is that the reasoning we should use to decide what humans get human rights?

>If you think that leaving out assumed words

No, I'm speaking scientifically and using philosophy in reference to rights. When I speak of biological entities I use scientific terms. "Being" is not a scientific term.

>>140122912
>So why didn't you use the actual definition of naturalism in the Oxford Dictionary?

I didn't find it necessary, but I can if you want.

"The philosophical belief that everything arises from natural properties and causes, and supernatural or spiritual explanations are excluded or discounted."

https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/naturalism

and to remind:

"A system of ideas and ideals, especially one which forms the basis of economic or political theory and policy."

https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/ideology

Naturalism is a position about the nature the world. This isn't simply stated but influences how all the world is seen. It is a system. It is within the definition.
>>
>>140123866

Theist oppose it by creating their own existential nihilism. As long as they get their afterlife, they actually want the world to end. The "rapture" is direct proof of this.

>By your view, the atheist is the nihilist.
No the atheist realizes the value of existence is subjective and all morality is man-made, i.e. subjective. So there is no "objective" morality, and any idiots claiming there is are petty liars.

> God's Moral Law is innate to people. This is objective, innate, morality.
False and false. Here's why. If there were one god, there's be one religion and one moral system. There's not. There are thousands of gods, hundreds of religions, and even more hundreds of moral systems. All relative, all written by men, all claiming divine inspiration.

Truly objective morals would never change, only relative morals do that. But your "objective" morals have changed dramatically over time.

The Christian virtue presumably comes from the bible, which has an interesting verse in Exodus 21:7 about the proper way for ancient Jews to sell their daughters into slavery for shekels.

"And if a man sells his daughter as a female slave, she is not to go free as the male slaves do."

So what do we make of that? Doesn't this sound - to the casual reader - that this is an arbitrary moral system?

I understand that some Christians no longer have to follow the old testament, but what about the ones that do? What about the ones who sell their daughters into slavery and let them go as the men slaves? Are they going to hell?

And can anyone make sense of the Parable of the Talents? Who does the "master" represent?

You ignore that the big promise of Christianity isn't the arrival at a new place or existence in a nice disembodied state but literally a resurrection of the dead. They aren't rejecting this world is what they seek is a return to it.

>No the atheist realizes the value of existence is subjective and all morality is man-made, i.e. subjective. So there is no "objective" morality, and any idiots claiming there is are petty liars.

Yes, and existential nihilists say there is no objective meaning or purpose and moral nihilists state there is no objective morality. And atheists as you define them fit that exactly. So atheists are nihilists by your view.

>False and false. Here's why...

Depends on your belief then.
According to Christianity, God made us in His image, and we are perfectly relatable with Him. If Christ was His true human avatar, then this is absolutely proven.

On the night Christ foresaw his death on the cross, he was sweating and shaking and prayed to the Father if there was another way they could accomplish their goals, but if there was no other way, he would commit to this fate.

A lot of people overlook this part and think of Him as this inhuman cattle that just came here and willingly led himself to being slaughtered. It's not true. He did not want to be tortured and killed in a gruesome way, but He "manned" up and did it because He had to.

If you don't believe in it, then yes, none of it matters to you. But for Christians, God is a relatable God. Why would he even create us if he was indifferent to us? Why give us the capacity for love if it is conceptually foreign to Him?

No shit.

>It is not a system of ideas, but rather the rejection of your irrational beings.

No, it is an actual substantial belief. Everything arising from natural properties and causes is a very big claim to which naturalists put much work into and have done for centuries. To say their work was to just reject "irrational beings" does them no justice and no justice to the claim. This is more apparent when naturalism doesn't speak about just "beings" but rejects the supernatural in other instances as well. For instance, substance dualism. And it is a system as it itself breaks into parts encompassing different fields. Metaphysical Naturalism, Biological Naturalism, and the like.

>Anyone who has studied philosophy understands instantly that you're just flinging made-up shit to see if it sticks. You're an intellectually dishonest fraud desperately trying to rationalize your irrational beliefs.

I honestly don't understand why you give so much of a damn about semantics. "It's not an ideology, it's a philosophy". Why is that so important to focus on for you?

Atheists are non-believers in made up gods. Nothing more.

Our brains and skulls have evolved in ways that strongly promote the ability to reason, however we can "suspend disbelief" to engage in brief flights of fantasy. We needed our imaginations to be able to hypothesize and plan ahead. We needed to be able to speculate on the movements of herds, etc. Irrational thinking has some utility for very short periods and our brains are well suited for it. However, we are not meant to suspend our disbelief for long periods of time. Living in delusions and daydreams would have been the fastest path to Darwinian death.

Your irrational beliefs for extended periods are having a profound and deleterious effect on your brain's chemistry. Holding mutually exclusive concepts without question or scrutiny creates a harmful cognitive dissonance. The long term strain of this deliberate dissonance damages your ability to think rationally. It even causes insane beliebers to spout patently ridiculous nonsense like, "The universe was created by a magic sky daddy" and "Atheism is a religion", etc. Atheism is only the non-belief in made-up gods. Any other definition is falsified and a clear symptom of severe brain damage.

You're desperately trying to associate atheism with something that atheism is not. Anyone with critical thinking skills and a rational mind can see that.

Abortion has 10,000 years of law, language, religion science, culture and tradition that support it. You have conjecture, misrepresentation and misogyny to oppose it.

>Everything arising from natural properties and causes is a very big claim to which naturalists put much work into and have done for centuries.
Yet you seem to sum it all up as simply an "ideology" when it clearly is not, any more than a mathematician who cannot solve an equation simply puts gods as a factor and poof, it's solved.

Militant atheism has died down because it's cringe tier and it was founded upon being against something. A movement can not survive on negativity (being only opposition) alone.

You say "rationally", but you know that all beliefs are irrational. Experiences are anecdotal evidence, making them a kind of fallacy. Fallacies are not proof for anyone else and meaningless as a rule.

>If religion is purely Darwinian
It is the opposite of Darwinian. Natural selection is the observation of nature. Religion forces us to go against our nature. For example, we are born naked. The Abrahamic gods say that people should go against our nature and wear clothes, but not clothes of two different types of thread because that is evil.

Using imaginary gods to control the minds of the people was successful because people were ignorant and easily fooled. In fact it still works on those who still are.

>Abortion has 10,000 years of law, language, religion science, culture and tradition that support it.

What the fuck is this stupid statement. We have no records of cultures 10,000 years ago. We know 8,500 years ago that mesopotamian cultures at least existed and know the Indus Valley Civilization existed about 6000 years ago. We have no idea what they held until much earlier. The earliest coherent writing is about 4500 years ago.

The oldest known teachings involving abortion is the Vedas and Assyrian Law that rejected it. Regardless, there are methods from that era that show they knew of methods to kill the child. Abortion was accepted in ancient Greece and Rome and rejected in every other instance in western history until the early 20th century when eugenics became popular. Likewise, it was rejected in most other places in the world.

You have no idea what the fuck you talk about. You're making shit up. And, hell, I summarized the contrary view right here for you >>140115443 Reddit. Where is the conjecture, misrepresentation, and misogyny? All you say in defense is the polar opposite point without argument.

They really are, but they're too dumb to see it. So I spelled it out for you.

I never said that. I said it's OK for atheists to be nihilist in the existential sense that this world is all they have and that their relative morality is far superior to the ones that arbitrarily kill to please their gods.

The "fallacies" are a fallacy in themselves. The slippery slope, for example, can and does exist and can be a valid point of argument. "Anecdotal evidence" doesn't matter to the one receiving it. If God has designed the world, then it's rational to consider He's hidden Himself from those He deems unworthy, and He is only "personally" provable, because that is how God prefers it to be.

Not all belief is irrational. You believe the floor underneath you won't suddenly disappear, that is a rational belief.

>It is the opposite of Darwinian. Natural selection is the observation of nature. Religion forces us to go against our nature. For example, we are born naked. The Abrahamic gods say that people should go against our nature and wear clothes, but not clothes of two different types of thread because that is evil.

Why do you believe it is unnatural to wear clothing? Just because you are born naked doesn't mean you must remain naked.

>Using imaginary gods to control the minds of the people was successful because people were ignorant and easily fooled. In fact it still works on those who still are.

Yes, there are people that use humanity's susceptibility towards religion to mind control them. That doesn't rule out all religion though.

>Never underestimate the power of large groups of stupid people.

You said religion was "the fastest path to Darwinian death." Why then is it mostly religious people that find marriage and have children?

You said: "The theists are the real nihilists. They eschew our real world for an imaginary one". This would imply that the atheists are not. Further, you attest to atheists as having the opposite view of that you attribute to "real nihilism", effectively making them not the nihilists.

Stop lying to me.

>It seems to be the one you're desperately avoiding.

I try not to focus on what I want to be true but rather what I know is true. That's why I'm a theist. And nihilism would lead to a lot of confusing view. Primarily the Problem of Intentionality.

It's not an ideology. Why would you call it something it is not unless you really don't know any better, or you really like using "idelology" as a weird smear.

So, any laws against abortion? Any public executions for women taking care of their own business? No? I was off by 1500 years and that's your big argument?

Some cultures rejected it. Mao Tse-tung banned abortion in China. Look at their populations today.

The Catholic and Protestant churches knew that the best congregant was the child of congregant parents. The most reliable way to expand the congregation and the size of the tithing dish was to make contraception a sin and promote unlimited childbirth. Look at the Mormons, can't have your own planet until you have seven kids.

The problem is that banning contraception has led to STD pandemics in Africa and India. India now has the 3rd largest AIDS epidemic in the world. Hey, weren't those the guys who banned abortion?

>It's not an ideology. Why would you call it something it is not unless you really don't know any better, or you really like using "idelology" as a weird smear.

Because I understand it as a system of ideas and ideals. I could have used "view" or something else and it wouldn't change. You're literally imagining a smear. I mean absolutely nothing by calling it an ideology. There is nothing wrong with ideologies. You're acting ridiculous.

>So, any laws against abortion?

We don't know what they had as a legal system, if they had a state at all. That's the point. You said there was 10k years of support for a view when there wasn't any idea what people's culture were in ANY regard until 6k years ago and our earliest known recognition of abortion is the penalizing of it with the Vedas AS I JUST TOLD YOU. Can you read? You're looking for pockets of western history that support your view to make a claim for it having widespread historical support.

>Some cultures rejected it. Mao Tse-tung banned abortion in China. Look at their populations today.

No abortions were banned and large families and the motherly duty to raise many was heavily shown and promoted. Banning abortion without seeking large families but sustainable families can be seen in the Christian west and was much more successful naturally.

>The Catholic and Protestant churches knew that the best congregant was the child of congregant parents. The most reliable way to expand the congregation and the size of the tithing dish was to make contraception a sin and promote unlimited childbirth. Look at the Mormons, can't have your own planet until you have seven kids.

So this conspiracy theory is why Christianity banned abortion in the 1st century when they were still a small marginalized group? You're just making shit up now.

Nope! India allows abortion up to 21 weeks of pregnancy.

In regards to Africa and AIDS:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/03/27/AR2009032702825.html

In many parts of Africa, having lots of children is a sign of social status. Condoms don't help when they SEEK lots of children. Further, condoms have had made the situation with aids worse due to a rise in risk compensation and the implicit support of open relationships that come with it. Monogamy, shutting down sex networks, and promotion NFP methods is the most effective means of controlling the population and promoting good social health and has worked. Unlike the ABC Strategy in Africa.

We are mistakenly told ITT religion is supposed to be the source of all objective morality. Morality is the set of the rules by which people live. If the religion has a god that enforces the morality, then mind control is the goal.

>does it seem like online militant atheism has died down in recent years

The online atheist movement was born out of the fear that fringe groups like young earthers would be able to use the internet as a platform to peddle their wares to unsuspecting people if it weren't for a vanguard of rationalists calling them out. Once it became pretty clear that internet people aren't that credulous, they moved onto greener pastures, namely SJWs. Only the most euphoric people give a shit what personal beliefs people hold so long as they're not manifesting on the civic level. The only issues that are strongly related are gay marriage and abortion, the former now being a dead issue, and the latter being to easy to secularize to attack through an atheist lens.

No, a true statement about theists does not imply any corollary statement about atheists unless a limiting condition like "or", "only" were applied.

>I said the exact opposite statement and gave evidence to express it.
You're the one who keeps associating nihilism with atheism. Atheism is not nihilism. Atheism has no creation story. Atheism does not claim to know how life started - by the way, evolution only starts when the 1st specie turns into the second. Nothing more. The cosmologist does not pretend to know where all the atoms of the universe came from only that he can predict where they all were at a certain time.

The problem is your beliefs have shriveling gods for all those shrinking gaps, and deep down you know it.

God and the Bible are not scientifically true but they are metaphysically true, the stories in the bible are archetypes that describe human nature and ways one should conduct himself morally.

It kinda did. Most mammals don't inhumate their dead. At some point, after the rational brain had evolved 100,000 years ago, someone would look at poor Thag laying dead on the ground and know that the magic inside him from when he was alive, is now gone. That magic had to explained somehow. So they made up explanations. One day, the evilest guy in the room, decided he could be the spokesperson for the deity that controls the magic. Voila, religion is born. Now you have to do whatever the evilest guy says because he knows the sky daddy and you know you don't.

You still lie because you've already lost the debate. You have stated:

" An atheist's life has far more meaning to him because it is the only life he has. He knows it is up to him to make purpose for himself, not wait for some deity to hand it to him or decide his "destiny"." ( >>140118508 )

"No the atheist realizes the value of existence is subjective and all morality is man-made, i.e. subjective." ( >>140125687 )

Meanwhile I stated:

"By your view, the atheist is the nihilist. The theist is not. But you characterize atheism poorly by assuming views besides lacking theism. An atheist can belief in a teleological system or an afterlife or whatever else. Just not deities." ( >>140121705 )

...and stated "atheists are nihilists" with the qualifier "by your view", rather than objectively. And I told you this. However you're ignoring that. Or at least having a hard time keeping up.

So no. I have not once attributed views to atheists. Only you have. And I've contended precisely that.

Yes, and there's nothing wrong with the irrational side of our brain believing in some kind of spirituality. but to accept one man's or one groups very elaborate and specific explanations that require very specific participation from you, including handing over your money, is morally wrong.

>So for thousands of years, it was the capacity for spirituality that was being selected. Otherwise, it would have been phased out.
Not necessarily. You have to look at what physical consequences came as a result of their beliefs. Burying the dead kept large predators away. Maybe it was a spiritual ritual, but it had a practical purpose.
