We've decided today that we're going to create an organization called Atheists Against Militant Atheism (AAMA). We're not sure what it is with a lot of atheists but many of them are uhm...how do you say it..douchebags? Calling them militant is probably giving them too much credit but I guess it'll have to work for now.
Now in case you're unaware, we're atheists here at People Liking People. But we're friendly atheists. We actually think that religion can be a good thing, and we do see that a lot of our friends and family members find value in it. So who are we to try to stop them from doing it? Who are we to mock them?
First there's the clowns that want to remove "In God We Trust" from our currency. They point to the separation of church and state but you know what? There's a million bigger issues to worry about. How does it effect me to have "In God We Trust" on my dollars? It's the same with "Under God" in the pledge or when people get their panties all in a bunch about the 10 commandments being displayed on government property. Get over it and get a life.
Now back in the day I used to think these were just fringe morons and didn't really represent the majority of atheists. But now we have Youtube and there's this whole community of douchebag atheists on there that have a 24/7 circle jerk about how stupid Christians are. It's almost like they're trying to convince themselves that they're truly atheist. But what I really find interesting is their hatred for religion. It goes beyond just not believing. If you notice, they hardly ever want to talk about real science or ideas about the world. They'd rather focus all their time on coming up with good arguments against Christianity and how the bible contradicts itself 1,000 times. I could give a flying fuck about the bible, what are you guys wasting your time for?
I am going to say something here that may offend religious people but it needs to be said. A lot of religious people are actually unstable and the only thing holding them together is this belief in God and from that belief comes a sense of value and purpose to their lives. Would you really want to be around on the day they come out and say "Breaking news: after looking over new evidence, religious leaders around the world all concede that there is no God after all, and no afterlife, the whole thing was just a big fairy tale"? Could you imagine the shitstorm that would surely ensue?
Let people have their fairytale beliefs. If that's what keeps them "sane" I say have at it, as long as they're not hurting anyone else. Yes we know, people do bad things in the name of religion. But those people are "bad" to begin with, religion is their justification. I think a lot of you atheists out there became atheists NOT because you were intellectually curious and thought a lot about life and came up with your own ideas. But you wanted to be rebellious and you have a permanent stick up your ass. Let it go, whatever your pent up frustration is about. Focus on something positive, life is too short.
We'll leave you with an example of some atheist douchebaggery in action, this is one of the more widely known atheists on Youtube, Thunderf00t:
