Atheists, by definition, do not have a set of "objective" moral beliefs. Some atheists might think slavery is okay, some might not. I run all of my thoughts and decisions through my dick.

Atheists believe that God is not only knowable but specifically theistic, which puts them neatly into the category of the most buttfuck nowhere bydlo fundamentalists. They believe in a God-shaped hole surrounded by all the exact same things an existing God would be surrounded by in an actual sand religion. If they'd been told that JFK brought them their christmas presents, they would have stopped believing in JFK.

Naw, atheists don't believe in much of anything, they just don't believe in any gods. That impression you have is only because atheists talk about Christian definitions rejecting Christianity, but we would readily reject other forms of theism.

>other forms of theism
Christianity is just the belief in Jesus Christ, not a form of theism :^)

Christians talk about the secular definitions of theism, but would readily reject other forms of marxist thought control dogma. :^):^)

Christian marriage is basically a threesome where one person is imaginary.

and he watches....every time you fuck your wife...in every position...every way....it's so fucking creepy.

(Unlike sweet holy yuri which is unchristian and unholy to them.)

>feel superior to untold millions of people as an Atheist
>still retarded
It doesn't take a genius to figure out the bible is flawed, but nobody will ever be able to take away that it was written down by monks, who are human, and therefore fallible. Then it was translated a million times, by other fallible hands. The theory most Christians with a brain adhere to seems to be that of an omnipotent God that is in everything and everyone and a heaven in what is basically another dimension. Both cannot be disproved. Also, the New Testament is actually a pretty decent guide on how to be a good guy. Don't get into poetry much, so I ignored the Psalms and couldn't get through the quran, but all in all, religious literature is definitely worth reading. The crazy shit the Hindus write is definitely worth it, they have so many Gods that it's basically a never-ending epic about all the fucked up things their Gods get up to. It always amazes me how people can identify as atheist when agnostic is a much easier choice, it's easier to digest for believers and leaves room for compromise. Maybe it has to do with rebelling against an occasionally somewhat forceful religious societies in the US, but atheists seem to be everywhere atm, and I just don't get it. Not to say that a lot of believers, especially the ones that the word of God is meant to be taken literally, apart from a few key components (7 deadly sins, 10 commandments), aren't just as stupid or worse.

tl;dr literally every Atheist ignores common scientific practice and ignores good books

I'm an atheist to the Christian god, I'm agnostic to Indra, and I'm a believer in the Shinto penis gods. Any god that will slap feminists who deserted us and tells them we have superior IQ SCORES is alright in my book and I won't check for confirmation bias.

I just enjoy them as works of historical fiction. No sense dismissing them altogether. Might as well dismiss the Star Wars trilogy because of Jedi being a legitimate (parody) religion, and not because they are shitty movies

Most atheists just don't want to deal with absolute/objective truth/reality. They can't into moral relativism unless they deny the existence of God.

Lefties want to say/believe things like
>(you)'re on the wrong side of history
>morality is whatever the mob decides
but people who believe in a religion will never accept these.

I think these are mainly the "no religion" people the atheists claim when they want to pretend atheism is large and growing in society.

You need to understand that "theism" is a jew conspiracy to subvert christians by pandering to normie edgelord autists' know-it-all complex. "Atheist" conversely is the only true population that genuinely believe in theism as it is dictated to them with no room for question, and it gets applied as a strawman representing mostly just Christianity as an umbrella term. Of course it can be applied to say, islam, but this generally hasn't been the case and the more it does the less abrasive it will be to christians as it starts failing to strawman christians specifically.

Fun fact, gnosticism went through the exact same shit in what I believe was around the 3rd century or so. Nowadays it basically means "I don't have conclusive, blind faith that God is mean to me", to which Christianity always has had the typical answer be "well duh, me neither".

If you see an elephant crushing a mouse beneath its foot, and loudly proclaim "I am neutral!", do not expect the mouse to appreciate your neutrality.

This is doubly true if you decide to take time out of your "neutral" day to criticize that mean, hateful mouse for being so "intolerant" of that poor innocent elephant's culture.

Pretending that bigotry and opposition to bigotry are equivalent does not make you "enlightened". It just makes you a bigot.

Did you know? Religion has held back progress for centuries. In countless occasions groups have formed to oppose science because they have an interest in heaven, but never once have groups formed to oppose science because they had an interest in worldly benefit. This is because god-faith is necessary for it and material goods are entirely incidental.

This is a good depiction of what Christians believe life will be like according to Revelation.

Imagine being unable to do anything but face Gary Stu-sama and worship his face forever and ever. And according to revelation there will be an annoying voice that keeps singing the same words over and over for all of eternity.

You will lose your free will and be nothing more than a puppet. Insects will fly into your mouth if God desires it and you'll look like a drooling fool for all of eternity.

Always...

God creates humans that he set up to fail from the get-go. Humans fail, even though god set it up that way intentionally. The first family had 2 sons, so lineal incest is the only way to populate the world. People piss off god so much that he drowns them all except for 1 family during the flood, leaving them to populate the entire world again through linear incest.

People still make him angry, so god rapes his child so she can become pregnant with child; which is also god in the flesh. God in the flesh walks around on earth for 33 years, and proclaims himself the son of himself. He then needs to sacrifice himself to himself in order to satisfy himself with his grudge against humans.

God dies, but doesn't die because he's god. I guess it's just a weekend trip. God comes back from the dead, and walks around and says some shit for 40 days, until he ascended on the day of ascension to go sit next to his own right hand until the end of time, at which time he'll come back to earth and kill everybody who doesn't believe this story.

Christianity is flat out stupid.

This isn't really a statement about specific things that are bullshit, but many Christians will say things like "I know the Bible" when what they really mean is they know the parts of they've been taught.
Once you start studying the Bible yourself you realize all the horrific things most people aren't taught and most preachers never talk about. Just a few:
Women and children are not only supposed to submit to the man, they are basically property.
If a man rapes a virgin, he has to make restitution by paying the father. If a woman lies about being a virgin, she can be put to death.
If your children disobey you, you can have them stoned to death.
Women never have the right to right to file for divorce but men can in the case of infidelity.
God once had a bear maul a group of young children because they called a prophet baldy.
God struck Uzzah dead because he touched the ark to keep it from falling over.
God ordered the genocide of complete cities, including women, children, and animals because they didn't worship him, yet we are taught God is love.
If a man is homosexual, he can be stoned to death.
If you get a tattoo, you can't go to heaven.
The verse that people use in Romans to say homosexuality is a sin and won't go to heaven actually translates as male prostitute rather than homosexual. Also, other things besides that are listed, but people leave those out.
If a man thinks his wife has been unfaithful and she is pregnant, he can mix a drink of herbs and if she was unfaithful, the baby will die and be extracted out of her body on her thigh, yet we are taught abortion is a sin in the eyes of God under any circumstances.
God curses entire generations, up to the 7th generation, because of the sins of the forefathers.
God hardened Pharaoh's heart causing him to refuse to release the Israelites but then punished him for not releasing them.
All throughout the Old Testament men who were blessed by God had multiple wives and concubines, yet we are taught the Bible teaches one man and one woman only in a marriage.

Psalm 137 says that anyone who smashes the babies of Babylon against the rocks and kills them is blessed.
We are taught that the Bible says we must give a tenth of our cash to the church, yet in the Bible tithing was the giving of food and crops so the priests could eat. At the time, there was already a monetary system in place. If it was supposed to be a tenth of your cash, that's what they would have said.
Lot offered up his two virgin daughters to be gang raped so the "wicked" men of the city would not have relations with two male visitors to his house. Lot was not punished but the men of the city were struck blind.
Slavery was condoned in the Bible.
The King James Version of the Bible has words and entire verses in it that some other translations do not. These verses and words were not in the original texts yet many people believe the KJV is the only true Bible, even though the Bible itself says do not add or take away from the texts.
Also, it was finished in 1611. It wasn't even the first Bible. The first Bible to be printed on a moveable type printing press was the Gutenberg Bible, printed in 1454 or 1455, a full 150 years before the before the KJV was even commissioned and 112 years before James was even born. That's not including all the other handwritten versions that existed before the printing press. Also, the Catholic version of the Bible is different than the Protestant version (the Catholic version has more books).
And then, I'm not going to even get into contradictions.
Any time any of this is brought up, Christians say something like "We can't question God" or "That's what is says but that's not what it means!" Another nugget is "Those were Old Testament laws! Jesus changed that with the new covenant!" even thought Jesus himself said he didn't come to change the law, only to fulfill it.
Many Christians also say that all the violence is limited to the Old Testament. They have clearly ignored or never read Revelation.
The more you study the Bible, the more you realize it just doesn't add up.

Problems with universal utilitarianism? Anonymous 06/06/2017 (Tue) 14:31:37 [Preview] No. 499 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Can you identify any problems with his argument?
http://www.patheos.com/blogs/daylightatheism/essays/the-ineffable-carrot-and-the-infinite-stick/
>I believe I have come up with a new variant of utilitarian moral theory that avoids the flaws of both act and rule utilitarianism, which I call universal utilitarianism. It can be summed up in a single sentence, and without further ado, here it is:
>"Always minimize both actual and potential suffering; always maximize both actual and potential happines."
His argument is the closest I have seen to a practical objective morality. However, it would be difficult to follow if others didn't follow it too. I am not willing to give most of my money to the poor, mainly because I Don't think someone richer would do the same for me. I am not nearly rich enough to be the one who should do more to help others financially either. But as an atheist with some education, maybe I can help others intellectually who have less knowledge

Happiness is a form of potential suffering. Unless it's the kind of happiness that equals death. Your faith in an universal reward is pathetic.
