Things That I Hate

Atheism

I don’t know how people can interpret empirical data as evolutionary evidence. If you don’t believe in God, remember, he believes in you.

  1. Do you even know what “empirical” means? From the New Oxford American Dictionary: “based on, concerned with, or verifiable by observation or experience rather than theory or pure logic”. That means that, unlike unverifiable religious beliefs, which are pure theory, evidence of evolution is observable and verifiable in reality.

    Additionally, religion and evolution are not mutually exclusive. There are a number of Christians who believe in evolution. And atheism goes far beyond just evolution. Atheists tend to apply the same sort of logic and requirement of evidence to everything else, which shreds all the faith-based belief religion depends on.

    As an atheist, it doesn’t bother me what religion someone is, as long as they don’t try to force me to be a part of their religion or otherwise use said religion to violate the individual rights of others. However, when a religious person declares that they hate atheists, I will speak out against that person and religion in general.

    If you gain personal value from your religion and it works for you, keep doing it—no one is stopping you. But please be tolerant of people with different beliefs. There’s no reason we can’t coexist peacefully, each person practicing their own personal religion and philosophy without interfering in the affairs of others.
