While I do respect atheists a lot and think most of them are very smart people, I think they are somewhat in the same boat that the very people they despise (Christians) are in. For instance, they hate how (most) Christians think the Earth is 6,000 years old, evolution isn't possible and stuff like this. While these claims by the (sloppy) Christians may be weak and fairly laughable, atheists create their own set of problems by denying certain things and throwing the baby out with the bathwater.
For instance, rather than atheists simply saying, okay this point is wrong, this point is wrong and this point is wrong and keeping everything else in Christianity that makes sense, they just get rid of it all. So now rather than the possibility of a spirit or afterlife being a reality they are stuck with their own religion saying it is all BS simply because they disagree with EVERYTHING that certain religions teach, even though not everything religions teach is wrong, only certain pieces.
I ask you the question, have you ever met an atheist that believes in an afterlife? Have you ever met an atheist that understands that we are all infinite energy and that our energy moves on after death? Of course not, instead they threw the baby (all the true aspects of religion) out while they got rid of the contaminated water (6,000 year old earth, self-righteous preachers, etc).
Can we all just one day talk about truth and get out of the duality mentality? And can atheists at least be somewhat critical (which they claim to be) and research topics in full rather than be spoon-fed bad science the same way Christians are spoon-fed bad religion (good band btw)? Just because somebody is wrong about something doesn't mean you are right about it.Filed under: Spiritual, Atheists
