Some faithful folk believe atheist are atheist cause they like to sin.
The argument completely overlooks the fact that humans are social beings.That there is things like empathy involved in life.And so on
It’s an argument like saying, the reason why Christians don’t choose to go around bashing murdering and thieving and sexually abusing people,Is only because they worry some God is watching them
It’s a stupid argument.And its most believed by idiots
Here is a video on the subject
Because believers really believe this stupid shit.Is also partly why theists lose their natural ability to feel empathy,and love and care.
Because they remove their focus from simply being natural normal social living beings.To focusing very intently on believing utter bullshit
I mean even groups animals live in social settings.Where things like empathy and common good, helps them create very strong bonds together.These animals don’t do this ,out of their fear ? that some God might be watching them, to make sure they do . Do they
No. Obviously of course not
But religious humans ,being the idiots that they are,have trained their minds to believe that ,only fear can help make living beings, be good and cooperate
The idea is complete utter bullshit
Meanwhile “religious” human minds get so confused and caught-up in worry and fear ,in trying to remember to be good ,because they have been indoctrinated to need to have fear of Gods.And so on
That they ultimately by-pass naturally nurturing love and empathy and normal natural social existences.That should exist within groups of social beings, that have naturally evolved to help create benefits of coexistence
This helps explain why even Catholic priests and Popes, could have “brought themselves” to decide to hide sex abuses.It also even helps explain why our exclusive brethren family really don’t seem to care to give a damn about us anymore .It even probably explains how come a number of peeb net members, could have chosen to stand by in silence, while the peeb net underdogs were being mistreated,too. In fact it helps explain lots of stuff about human life as it is today
1. Many of these folk may all still have their “fear of God” right ?. Yes of course they do
So then why do they do things that are bad/thoughtless
2. Because their belief in God, has taken over their natural lives.Thus ruining their natural ability to nurture strong social bonds,which is also ultimately what usually helps strengthen things like kindness, love and empathy,cooperation and so on.Among all social groups of living beings
This phenomena can probably also help explain, why a very religious country, say like the USA (for instance), can still have such a huge problem with crime
Because fact is
Fear isn’t what ultimately helps create social harmony, among groups of social beings.
Its things like love,kindness ,understanding,empathy and so on, that actually evolved to help to create social harmony.Which can be very beneficial
While us humans, are busy proudly thinking how jolly wonderful we are, and are busy thinking we are so much more intelligent, and are living “far above” what we think those animals are living like.
Meanwhile those stupid animals, are actually all busy happily living with some very natural abilities, that we (humans) have ultimately overlooked and have thus lost
And we all pay for it. We pay for this ignorance ,brought on by our belief in Gods
We can try to talk sense to members of our family that exist within the exclusive brethren cult,for ever and a day.If we like
But when their natural feelings , have been so overcome by such an idiotic form of fear.Then we might just as well, be busy trying to talk some common sense, to a garden pea
