I do resent most atheist tell me I should not believe in my religion.

You shouldn't. Just as the believers want to spread their word why should atheists just stay silent? Atheists like to work by facts and if they know something that could help another why not share it.

Feared To Atheists

Attached Image QUOTE (William @ 18-Jan 15, 10:34 PM)
Atheism is not a religion but just a position.


I disagree with this statement and here is why: 1.It takes faith to believe there is no god, faith is the basis of all religion's. 2. All religion's have their preachers, and that is the same for atheists, They have people preaching all the time that there is no god. 3. Most, if not all, religion's have books and literature solely dedicated to them and Atheism is no exception.

Atheists Not To Be Feared! Beliefs Religious General

A quick definition of religion in 3 points from first to last:

Attached Image QUOTE
the belief in a god or in a group of gods
: an organized system of beliefs, ceremonies, and rules used to worship a god or a group of gods
: an interest, a belief, or an activity that is very important to a person or group

An atheist does not have a belief in god, does not worship 'god' and does not have an activity dedicated to the spreading of their beliefs. The point of being an atheist is to separate one's self from that.

I will start with your first point. You are right that atheists do not worship "God", per say. But they do worship and I would say the thing that they worship is their god. First what is worship? Worship is the giving of yourself to something or someone, in other words, it is something that you think about, work for, feel joy form, strive to be with and something that consumes your time more than anything else. This could be money, drugs, alcohol, food, work, or someone else like a movie star. So even atheist's have a "God" they just don't call it that or even recognize it.

Your second point is a completely false statement. They have people that do radio and TV talk show they have people that do demonstrations, and they even have clubs like the American atheist or the Atheist Alliance International which, by the way, both put out reading material and ask for donations and ask if you want to join. Sounds like a church.

So even though they want to separate them selves from a "God", they are still a religion.

Feared To Atheists

I think its a case of mixing technicalities with what a person who does not follow religion or god does about it. While there might be a few who go out of their way to drum up support for it there are some who don't do anything about it, they don't believe and they don't go around people that they should think the way they do.

Atheists Not To Be Feared!

For a person deep rooted in a religious upbringing hearing the word "Atheist" is like saying the "Devil". You see if you take away the religious ideals from someone who is deeply religious then there is a void that leaves them questioning everything they believed. That is something to painful to conceive so they repel any talk of there being no god far from them.

Page 15 Atheists To Feared!

I believe most people are irreligious and not true atheists and not many people (From both sides) understand the difference. Some of the "Atheist" preachers are so zealous declaring their "Freedom from the shackles of religion" (Any religion, but usually Christianity) and in the end they are in the same level with the passionate priests.

From a true humanitarian scope, there should not be any debate, especially so passionate one, as of what anyone believes and who (Or whos' belief) is better. We do not need religion to have a moral compass and be civil with eachother and make true and creative conversations or exchange of ideas.

One of the things that gives credibility to the points that atheists make are the men in leadership that pontificate religious rhetoric and yet do the total opposite of what they say by keeping dark secrets of their own that are later exposed.
