Atheism community posting rules

1. Allow Comments
To maintain a discussion we require all posts have comments enabled and remain so. This allows moderators to keep in communication.

2. Image posts
Image posts must follow the rules described in the image post policy. See   #GpacMeme .

https://plus.google.com/118406556402551736506/posts/NRVcWE5vA4C

3. Relevance
Every post must be related to atheism or religion and it must be immediately clear why a post is relevant to the community. If a video is linked from a post, the post must have a clear description of the contents of the video.

4. NSFW
Nudity and violence or disturbing images must not be directly visible from the stream. Links to such content in either posts or comments must have a warning of what is being linked to.

5. English
Posts have to be in English. If non-English content is linked from the post, the post must have a good summary or description of the non-English linked content.

6. Proselytizing
Theists are welcome to join and to ask questions but proselytizing is not allowed.

7. Avoid cross posting
If your post appears to be of dubious quality and the exact same post is posted to multiple communities, it may be considered spam and could be removed.

8. Respect
The other members are more important than you, simply because there are more of them. If your presence makes this place a worse experience for everybody else, then you are no longer welcome. If a little more effort on your part makes your post a better experience for everybody else, then you are expected to make that effort. If you don't care about the quality of your post, we don't care about it either.

My hypotheses: God is an evolutionary trait humanity developed over time to survive the harshness of the environment. Am I right? Probably not, but this guy brings up something interesting. God is apparently a concoction of the brain, due to a lack of limbic activity.

Oh, and meditation is way more powerful than prayer.

Actually notions of God & an afterlife could very well be a psychological survival mechanism.

One aspect of what we define as being sentient. Is the ability to perceive one's own mortality. To know that our time is limited. Imagine how difficult that notion would be for early humans to cope with.

They didn't have the society or civilsations required for self betterment. They had a brutal existence.

One would give in to despair quite quickly, if there wasn't distractions. So we created distractions. Namely an afterlife, then the notion of deities.

Which follows the pattern of the forming of religion. From ancestor worship, through to monotheistic religions.

As we culturally evolved, so did our religious beliefs. Culminating in a good versus evil paradigm.

It's also worth noting that religion was an early social cohesive. That allowed humans to come together under similar beliefs & construct larger human settlements.

Which part of atheism do you guys "claim" for yourself? I myself would call myself an agnostic atheist. This might be the laziest choice, but in my opinion it's the most scientific variant.

Sorry if it's a repost. A short search didn't show this photo and it wasn't represented in the photo section.

This is an example of a religious pious crazy nutjob?

I am accused of being a coward by +Ludovic Moreeuw! But he erased my comments the context and other third parties comments to fit his story. I am being also accused by him of harassment. People of this community, please do not feel threatened by this kind of people... ¬_¬

Now I have another stalker. He also shared this private post: https://plus.google.com/u/0/+LudovicMoreeuw/posts/ST7BtoQxyVy where he makes clear that he has knowledge of my e-mail and phone number. Was that suppose to scare me?!

Words of +Ludovic Moreeuw/+Art Moreeuw.com:

"i don't care about your reason. I have your phone and your mail. never speak with me, block me, don't mess with me and i will forget your number and your mail... otherwise it is public information i can use it. make the good choice. believe me."

Words of +Ludovic Moreeuw/+Art Moreeuw.com:

"i saw your post, very interesting !
what can i do with your phone number and your mail ? using it on porn site, commercial site... do you want lot of spam. or your delete your post or i use it. not a threat, reality. you want play, ok ? your choice."

Islam-apologist at the Huffington Post claims that the Koran is the greatest scientific book in history and predicted the Big Bang/evolutionary biology.

I am not convinced, largely because his arguments are incredibly stupid.

About this community

Join us to discuss topics related to atheism and religion from a secular perspective. Our community is meant to offer support to community members, share educational resources, and to discuss issues pertaining to the impact of belief and religion on society. Our subject is controversial and our members are many. In order to keep our community running as smoothly as possible our team of volunteer moderators have developed a set of rules that aim to: - Encourage civil and polite discourse, - Reduce clutter and promote active discussion, and - Promote accessibility for all, including those with visual, aural or other impairments. Please review the rules (in the link below) before posting. Also note that this is a public community and the posts or comments you make can be viewed by anyone. ATHEISM The Oxford English dictionary defines atheism as: “Disbelief or lack of belief in the existence of God or gods,” but it is not up to us to define the beliefs of others. Many atheists have their own definition based on their particular thoughts. Discussions related to these differences can be thought-provoking -- if we keep in mind that it is not helpful to argue over which one is right or wrong. Read “What is Atheism” in the link below to learn more.

And it's logic is so fucked up, just because you are facing harassment on a smaller degree than others, it becomes less valid? They don't understand.

"Is there anyone on this thread who believes universe got created just by chance?"

If by chance you mean the existence of randomness where several different possibilities have have an actual chance to happen, I think such thing would have to be proven to be the case first.

If, on the other hand, such chance didn't exist and reality was deterministic, then everything would happen the way it does because it would be impossible that it didn't, and therefore a god would be completely unnecessary.

So while I don't know which option is actually the case, I don't see any of them supporting the case for the existence of a god.

An article some very crazy religions in the world!
http://odditiesbizarre.com/weird-religions-in-the-world/
In a world with thousands of different faiths, you are guaranteed to find some very wacky and weird religions. Although their particular system of faith and/or worship may seem useless or even ludicrous to the unbeliever, to the believer, it can be one of the most important things in life. According to a study that …

Scientology. Lol. I remember when I was young and I first heard of it. I really thought it had something to do with science. Madonna was a member and stuff. I just learned later how outragiously stupid it is.
Even L.Ron Hubbard wrote like 1000 sciencefiction books.... somehow people start believing that the 1001st book would be a religious one.
It is even full of stuff from his other stories.
He fled the US to evade taxes.
Smart countries like Germany wouldnt recognize this crap as a religion.

Sure, sure. Now that the screeching, clawing cats are swarming from the bag, let's protect the Religion of Pieces by rolling back humanist progress to protect jihadist and sharia ideology. You know where you can stick this desperate request, don't you, Abdulmajeed Al-Omari?
 
This 'call' for the world to respect all religious symbolism and dictates is a farce. First of all, if your God is so powerful why must he need mere mortals to do his bidding. And secondly, fuck your religion if it denies basic human rights to all citizens, regardless of gender and sexual orientation.
