Many atheists say that atheism just means not believing in god. Nothing more and nothing less. Is this true? When we become atheists, do we automatically accept or reject something? Once this is answered, going beyond this, should we deliberately accept or reject somethings after accepting atheism?
Apologies for all the typos and missing words - there's never enough time edit properly. As someone who edits academic papers and books, as well as screenplays, I hate to see uncorrected texts! lol
Another point is that theists invented the word 'atheist' and turned it into something for theists to deride and hate.
What theists have in common is that none accept that science can or will explain everything, including the origins of the Universe, without recourse to untenable goddidit claims.
By contrast we accept science; we are pro-science; many of us are scientists. No theist accepts science for the ultimate explanations; so theists are ascientific and behave ascientifically. We might censure them for that and for proffering their ascience (i.e. the supernatural) in place of the wonders of natural science.
Thanks for taking a note of this post. I am a member of A N for a few months now and have been enthusistic about the discussions. Almost in every discussion, I see almost everyone expressing strongly about the past Christianity, as if everybody is stuck in the times of the crusades or the inquisitions, or the withch hunt. Time does not wait for anyone, and not this long anyway. Whatever may be the subject matter, the discussion comes round to the same subject. I was not unware of the past and its insane atrocities, but when I joined AN I expected to talk to a modern group of atheists, not mired in the past. I am somewhat dissappointed with this.
I wish to say, let us move on. Think of future. Be something more than what we are, we must realise that we are destined to influence the future of the world. If we dont, then who can have the foresight? What could we do about it?
