Now I am not expected to go into extreme specifics or go into too much detail but just basically throw this out there and let it be know. If you disagree don't be a dick. :P So I hear a lot of people talking about how Militant Atheism is a bad thing for the image of Atheism and I came to one final conclusion:
I mean what is Militant Atheism? Asking to have "God" removed from the pledge? Wasn't that how it originally was? Being against religion? Even though they do demonize science. So what is Militant Atheism? To someone who is theistic it is as much as saying you are atheist. To someone who is atheistic it is, well, someone like TheAmazingAtheist on YouTube. Who, whilst being a dick, presents hard evidence which makes religion laughable. It's not approachable by religious people and even some atheists think he is too much of a dick.
But isn't that the point?
Can you really label an atheist?
I mean we have no bible, no Jesus, no evil lord xenu, and most importantly no Allah and/or God.
So how can you? The whole point is a disbelief so from a religious standpoint we are the null. You cannot group us together and assume something about all of us from one of us. Whereas with Christianity, they follow the bible. They have the same general beliefs and can be held accountable for the action of one.
It's not that we are special. Just that we are different.
This is another thing theistic folks like to point out: If we do not have a God, and all believe different things and different ideas, then what are morals?
To put it simply lions don't eat each other cause they know they need it for survival. So as for the whole murder thing that goes against the survival and natural selection thing most, if not all, atheists believe in.
As for other things, such as stealing, we know in the modern age that it is wrong. Laws in our governments and etc. So if you steal from someone it is already known as a dick move, not just because God said it was so.
Meh. I refuse to edit this. It's just a rough spilling of my thoughts.
