Things That I Hate

Christianity and Atheism Conflict

Atheists are without religion. Personally I think god is a hypocrite for saying he created man to do as he wills, while saying that cracking down on any other religion is holy. I don’t care if I got this wrong, that’s not the point. If you’re an atheist forcing your beliefs on anyone, means you’re a hypocrite since to be an atheist you’re not supposed to have beliefs, only principles of beliefs. And christians that force beliefs on atheists are hypocrites too, for HINDERING A MAN’S or woman’s FREEDOM TO DO AS HE PLEASES. Don’t make Jesus’s sacrifice in vain. And stop acting like fools, we have a planet to heal (not that I personally care) and if we keep on firing those missiles that send the ground into the atmosphere I doubt we have long before it all cracks down on us. Working in one team works. Hey, the British and French are best trading allies, doesn’t mean they have to like each other. They just prefer peace and prosperity after all that conflict. And the moral of this is that we need to stop finding clever ways to kill each other and find more to help.

  1. This is fairly nonsensical. Atheists have beliefs. Those beliefs just tend to be rooted in reason and evidence, rather than faith. Also, atheists tend to not force anyone to follow their beliefs, aside from attempting to prevent other people from violating their rights, and those of others, which some may see as having beliefs forced upon them if they believe it’s their right to violate the rights of others, which is clearly absurd, as a right cannot negate another right.

  2. I agree with this post. The person isn’t saying all atheist push their belief on others, but neither do all Christians. A select few do out of everyone and they give the rest a bad name

  3. Then it should be a complaint about people who try to force their beliefs on others, not about atheists or Christians specifically. It’s still a mostly nonsensical essay, with false statements, incoherent points and arguments, and a conclusion that has nothing to do with the introduction.

  4. I agree with Fred. This makes absolutely no sense. And since when are atheists not supposed to have beliefs? Atheism isn’t a religion, and every atheist is different.

  5. Atheism is the belief that there is no God. So if an atheist says that they have no faith, they’re lying since they believe (without proof) that there is no higher being. I pretty much agree with this, people tend to forget that every demographic has an extreme.

    I was verbally assaulted everyday in HS since I was Catholic and every other kid who called themselves an atheist decided that I was the poster girl for Christianity and the bad people that we attract. But then again, I bet you there is another girl out there who had the same experience like me, but her being an atheist and the kids being Catholics.

  6. That’s incorrect, actually. Perhaps some—or even many—atheists base their conclusion that there is no god on faith, but for others it is a logic conclusion based on the facts available. It is not faith to disbelieve something in the absence of evidence of its existence—that is the opposite of faith.

  7. Not believing in God takes as much faith as not believing in Santa Claus.
