    What's your take on the "atheist movement" that has been around for a while? What are its pros and cons? Who do you think are its best speakers? Has it had good influences overall, bad ones, or ambivalent ones?

    You should be enlightened to the fact that there is life after death.

    Saint Thomas Aquinas also proposed the notion of proto-evolution in his Summa Theologica 500 years before Charles Darwin ever did.

    There is no "movement". Despite churches having no shortages on desperate prey to feed on, people are finally starting to wise up as it is getting harder and harder to bury their heads in the sand.

    Kids are now questioning these ridiculous fairy tales that we were forced to memorize in Sunday school or we'd get goofy time. They have it so easy nowadays.

    Yes, religion was the origin of modern science.
    Years, and years, and fucking years ago. Around the same time that they would crack open someone's skull when they had a headache, to let the demons out. :D

    Atheism is stupid because once you look at the big picture of science, things begin to make more sense if you accept the basic premise that our laws of physics are the way they are because we live in a giant infinite living imagination.

    You realize Greek philosophers were particularly irreligious?

    I don't think there will ever be enough to write about TheAmazingAtheist on ED.

    I love this kid's video. He's as dumb as dog turd but I love his guts. So many atheists were butthurt over this video.

    Atheisism is another religion, and it's prophets/preachers/etc... usually have as little idea about what their actually doctrine is founded in as any other religious figurehead.

    This notion is thousands of years older than LSD.

    My own opinion: The "atheist movement" is just another political ideology, political movement based on cultural narratives, which is somewhere between "humanist" liberalism taken one small step further and typical libertarian retardation. They think they're these amazing rebels fighting against the system but they're really just another group only out for their own selfish myopic interests.

    There are a few gems in there but for the most part most of its little leaders are not too bright. At most they amount to a bunch of clueless pundits like Bill Maher and Pat Condel. And like the religious people they criticize they act as herd animals attacking in droves whatever opposes their ideology. And like religious doctrine their cultural narratives are full of factual errors and moral policing. Lies and hypocrisies.

    On "purely" philosophical grounds they're very naive, unaware of the assumptions and patches of delusion behind their stances. The first aphorism of Nietzsche's Gay Science Book II is addressed to "realists" and it's a very fitting description of them. They're not Spock. They're just as prone to idiocy, emotions, vulnerability, prejudice, manipulation, superstition, and hysteria as everyone else. Their school of thought boils down to a few slogans, revealing very little nuance or understanding of history, culture, politics, philosophy etc. It's philosophy for the lowest common denominator, hence their popularity on YouTube, There is no enlightenment here, no sense of self-awareness.

    On humanitarian terms they are oppressive shitstains. They support equality and human rights but only on a superficial level. When a real challenge to the systemic oppression and inequalities of society is addressed they quickly change tune and defend their own interests. The extreme misogyny they have is not too flattering either, and it is fueled by their doctrines, which feature such rubbish as evolution psychology.

    In other words, same millennia old shit, but this time with hipsters. But I'm stating the obvious.

    We know he wasn't. He just said it better than most, and happens to be a really cool (dead) guy.

    Also, about how you think science is based on magic:
    Ha.. HA HA. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAno

    In fact, it can be argued that tripping balls was for us humans one of the milestones in getting complex mental concepts and spirituality
