Exposing Evolution As A Mess and Atheism As Hot-Air!

New Intolerant Atheism

with 11 comments

Dawkins and Hitchens are leading this surge in intolerant atheism, they do not mince their words they hate God and anyone who dares believe in him.

This is an interesting video and it is well worth watching, I go to speak to university students and I that kids are not prepared to face the deception, they will encounter on campuses.

  1. How can an atheist ‘hate’ god. God doesn’t exist! It’s a bit like saying I hate leprechauns.

    Please think before writing!

  2. Look at the new adverts for the God delusion, they claim 2007 was a bad year for God.

    Now, something is definitely wrong but it seems they are using Atheism as a cover to get at God.

  3. Last I checked theists were the majority. So it is hard to see how people have to dare to believe in Him. It is also hard to consider atheism intolerant because atheism is just the belief there is no god. What you are railing against is antitheism. But, intolerance is a good thing towards certain subjects and people. I for one don’t tolerate genocide, murder or torture. Please think and defend why Dawkins and the “new”atheists are wrong, before critizing them for attacking the faithful.

  4. Firstly, in Europe Atheist are the majority.

    Secondly, I am interested in hearing ideas rather thaattacking people.

    Lastly, have you ever listened to Dawkins and Hitchens, they are not very fair and balanced.

  5. Ohh…”Fair and balanced”?!?! What the heck do you mean? Atheism is a statement about reality and belief, and reality doesn’t care how you feel. It is quite heartless that way.

  6. “Firstly, in Europe Atheist are the majority.”
    No, they aren’t. In the latest Eurostat poll, 52% of Europeans said that “they believe there is a god” (theists), 27% said that they “believe in some sort of spirit or life force” (deists), and 18% said that “they do not believe there is a spirit, God, nor life force” (atheists).

    18% is hardly a majority. It’s not even close. If you can’t even get these very basic facts straight, why should we believe you on other matters?

  7. Really, those are the numbers? Maybe he is refering to Scandanavia and Albania (which are both supposed to be heavily atheist). Still, a more likely answer is he didn’t check his facts. Speaking of which… to google!

  8. Intolerant atheists are just as bad for us as fundamentalists.

  9. Yes because intolerant atheists behead women for showing their faces, have launched crusades, declare nonbelievers must die and of course are the majority. The similarities are striking.

    You seem to be repeating the “radical” atheists are bad, agnosticism/moderate faith good. Now the problem with that idea is 1) agnosticism is a position on knowledge, while atheism and theism are about belief and 2) moderate faith is only different from extremists on their conclusions. They use the same thought process and moderates are unable to critize extreme members of their faith whole follow their holy book. All the fundies have wrong is they have the “wrong interpretation”, but since there are many interpretations and faith means you don’t have to justify yourself then you can believe anything.

    I will remain calm and composed because, despite your errors you remain amoung the sane. I actually saw someone post that evidentiary reasoning doesn’t count! I hope you consider my answer and don’t say anything as stupid as that (it would be hard to).

  10. Let us make a list, shall we?

    1. Dawkins, Hitchens et al. are in fact fair and balanced. You, bring on the wrong side of the argument merely feel persecuted.

    2. As stated above, in poll after poll, the majority of Europeans clearly state they are theists. You are wrong again.

    3. There is nothing wrong and the writers (as well as everyone else in the world) you refer to are incapable of trying to “get” at an imaginary being. One may as well have it in for Frodo Baggins. By operating on the assumption that your idea of a deity exists, without proof of any kind, makes you yet again wrong.

    4. It was stated before but bears repeating, the idea that someone can hate something that they rationally think does not exist is inane. They can, of course, hate and despise organized religion for the historical harm it has done and the continuing harm it does to people and societies, they do not hate you imaginary friend. They are just stunned that you actually think he’s real.
