Top Ten Traits Atheists Have


The Top Ten

1 Most of us use science

Science is not "the reason behind how everything works." It is the attempt to explain it. You have just attempted to usurp the very definition of the Creator. How telling.

Let me get this straight, science is not a religion (some people think it is). Science has been tested and proven by real people and it is made of real facts.

You do realize most of the worlds greatest scientists were Christian, right? - GrimmShady

They gave God credit for all of their findings and their findings connected with their beliefs, so I think it is completely accurate to say that they did. Don't pretend like atheists are the only people in the world who use science to back their claims. - GrimmShady

And that my dear friend, explaining things, is the same as the reason behind it... - ARandomPerson

2 We are Open-Minded

Don't know about that. When it comes to the concept of God, atheists are as closed-minded as can be. They view the idea of an invisible God as hocus-pocus, yet blindly accept the illogical premise, most prominently proffered by Stephen Hawking, that the universe created itself "out of nothing." If that's not prestidigitation, nothing is.

, you are SO blind to your own close-mindedness, intolerance and arrogance! Your profile states, "Religion has to go. It has been controlling people for more than 2 millennia. It must be removed before the world falls apart. #ReligionGoesAtheistsStays." That is the definition of narrow-mindedness! You clearly think that anything opposing atheism should not even be considered? You are as dogmatic as they come. The hypocrisy is real!

Hm... Really? I wonder... If you even Looked at your self and asked, why am I believing this nonsense? - ARandomPerson

Oh I know that Atheists are open minded, cause Religion forces you to belive, narrowing your mind into nothingness. - ARandomPerson

Your list on the Bible pretty much proves the fact that you are close minded and disrespectful of other peoples religion. Not saying Christians aren't disrespectful, but you act as if Atheists are flawless embodiments wisdom and truth. - GrimmShady

I love his comebacks. They are so childlike.
You chastise Christians for only believing what we hear. Yet believing everything that a scientist "ahem Stephen Hawking" says is also close minded.
Albert Einstein believed in higher powers. Not necessarily a specific god, but a higher power. I believe that there is a higher power out there, and different cultures interpret God in different ways. Most of religion is the struggle of man to understand God.
I feel bad for you. - CityGuru

Argument from authority? My my I really need to teach you about not using logical fallacies! - ARandomPerson

3 We will believe anything if there is evidence to support it

The problem nearly ubiquitous among atheists is their selectivity in recognizing evidence, and their conflation of evidence with proof.

There is extremely evidence to support the fact that earth has been designed, yet you seem to deny that all the time. - GrimmShady

Is there? Because all the evidence that I've looked at for four years now don't remotely point to a creator. They aren't even pieces of evidence. Take the watchmaker argument. Saying a manmade thing has to have a creator doesn't mean the existence of the universe had to had a creator. Take the beauty of the earth. That's natural selection; plus millennia to appreciate everything. Aliens would view this as disgusting. Take the argue to that it was created for us. If so, then why are there so many things that can kill us? The percent of places inhabitable for us in the entire universe is so close to 100 we could call it 100% and the margin of error would be tiny. - ARandomPerson

The Bible predicts (thousands of years ago) that there will be people like you who deny the very evidence for God that is all around them: (passages from Romans ch. 1)

"For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse..."

"...who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator."

4 Most scientists are atheists

Do you have definitive data to support this claim? If one were legitimately a scientist, one would of necessity also be a logician. As such, one would be hard-pressed to not embrace the Aristotlean imperative of First Cause. It would seem, therefore, that a true scientist would be at most (or least) an agnostic.

Also, if you knew anything about history, you would know that Christianity spouts from Judaism, which spent most of its earliest years destroying and fighting pagan religions. Christianity centers more on love and peace, whereas pagan religions focus more on human sacrifice and death. - GrimmShady

Probably yes, as Most scientists reject the idea of religion. - ARandomPerson

5 We usually have lots of patience

Anyone can have patience. It doesn't matter what your religion is or if you don't have one. - xMagnoblade

I don't simply believe what I'm told. I have heard what all religions of the earth have to say and have decided to follow Jesus. It's true I was raised in a Christian family, but if I wanted to deny God, I would have absolutely no problem doing so. - GrimmShady

6 Most of us will accept defeat

So why are you still on this site? - GrimmShady

7 We usually know more about a religion than the person practicing it

This is the biggest load of crap. You can't know more about a religion than someone who practices it. That's like saying you know more about a sport than someone who actually competes in said sport! Until you actually experience something FIRST-HAND, you are just a bystander. And don't give me any crap about 'perspective'. Scientists always examine issues from ALL sides (points of view, frames of reference, whatever other synonyms you want to use, etc.) You won't ever know more about something unless you have an intimate experience with it!

Of course you can know how it feels to be a Muslim by hearing from a Muslim, but you do not know as much as the Muslim you are hearing from. That defies logic. Also, why are you atheists so obsessed with screaming indoctrination in people's faces. Don't even tell me for a second that atheists are not raised to believe in what they believe - GrimmShady

True, because to prove or disprove a theory you should be aware of every given fact or speculation. About the comment " arrogant elitist ". Science is looking for exact facts ( in other words " the truth " ) and the truth is for everybody, not for a elite group of people.

Are you familiar with the term, It's true? - ARandomPerson

€�To look out at this kind of creation out here and not believe in God is to me impossible,... It just strengthens my faith. I wish there were words to describe what it's like.” - Astronaut John Glenn describing Earth from space.

8 We laugh like everyone else
9 We have morals

Perhaps. But you've no firm basis for them. The great flaw in the popular atheistic explanation of moral consciousness in humans (that it "evolved" as a mechanism of preservation of the species, that we wouldn't simply wipe each other out willy-nilly) is that it does not address the reality of group interest, aka tribalism. Survival would have been viewed narrowly then, as it too often is today, as pertinent only to the clan, and not to the species at large. If you doubt this, then you're ignoring the brutal, bloody history of humankind. "Us versus them" has been the justification for all the wholesale bloodletting in human history. Only belief in a higher authority has mitigated this horror, by extending the understanding of the "tribe" to all of mankind.

Morals fall into the category of ethics which are written or unwritten laws in organised societies passing through education. Religion morals are written ethics or religious laws seen as a truth. The fact is that ethics are always subjective and not objective facts. None of morals ( religious or not religious ) have a firm basis and therefor a proven truth. All tryings of ethics and morals proposed as an objective universal fact have been failed in history of religion and philosophy. The best conclusion came from philosopher Kant who proposed the most objective idea of morals and ethics. Asking yourself "... if everybody should do in this world what I want to do right now, would it be good for society?... ". And that has nothing to do with religion or atheism. That's having educated common sence.

Also, have you heard of the Big Bang? That is what I meant by 'spontaneously generated itself.' It is the prevailing cosmological model for the universe, after all.

"A confused visitor that thinks evolution happened in a day..."
Did I say that? No. You really need to work on your reading and comprehension skills. Besides, your reply did not provide any answers to the questions that were asked. I will say again, science only serves to explain how the universe works, but not why it works.

10 They are cruel against Christians simply because they don't believe the same things.

Nope. Nada. We aren't cruel to Christian. Have you ever seen a atheist try to kill a Christian? No? We only have debates and sometimes we flip out, but hey, that's just a human, but you just don't acknowledge it. - ARandomPerson

The Contenders

11 We always have an argument up our sleeves

You say God's existence cannot be proven. Well, you atheists can't disprove that God exists either. Also, who said God is made of atoms? The Bible states that he is outside our universe, not 'natural.' What about all those scientific theories about the multiverse? Or higher dimensions? String theory? M-theory? Just as the scientific THEORY of evolution serves as an explanation of how 'species' developed from a primordial soup, these other theories are just as credible for suggesting the possible existence of a God that is outside our 4-dimensional space-time, in another dimension/universe that sustains ours (see M-theory). And just to be clear, a scientific theory is defined as "a coherent group of propositions (i.e. statements that express a concept that can be either true or false) formulated to explain a group of facts or phenomena in the natural world and repeatedly confirmed through experiment or observation."

Yeah, and that's the problem. If you're busy arguing, it means you're busy not listening to what other people have to say. Again, narrow-mindedness, because you believe that you are always right. Grow up and learn that you aren't right about everything. Oh and, by the way, it's 'AN argument', not 'A argument'. Why don't you go back to grammar school, then we'll talk about your supposed 'knowledge' about the religions of the world.

The fact you suggested someone with a differing opinion should go to a mental hospital proves you are not fit for debating my dog. - GrimmShady

Hey, I can prove to you that God isn't infinite and didn't create the universe. God is made of atoms. Duh, he has to be. Atoms make up everything. And what created atoms? That's right. The Big Bang. ( the big expansion ) so God couldn't of created the universe as he didn't exist then. - ARandomPerson

That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard and it proves how small minded you atheists can be. God is not made up of his own creation! He always was, and always will be. He doesn't "have " to be made of atoms, as he's, oh you know... GOD! - GrimmShady

Either way, they have found NO evidence for evolution. - IcetailofWishClan

All fossils are evidence of evolution; the fact that we can drink milk and others can't; race; backwards photoreceptors - ARandomPerson
