I m here to ask for knowledge not to debate :)
I just have a few small questions to ask an atheist because I do not personally know any smart people who are claiming to be.
-why does one chose to be ?
-how can one be certain there is no god ? ( i myself find the idea of existence of god intriguing but ... to say for certain on the matter on the existence of god as positive or negative is absurd because there is no proof denying or proving its existence . )
-How can one be certain all religions are false ?
-Why atheism is becoming like a popular clan to join ?
-All people are bragging what Label they're wearing , Shouldn't one's beliefs be a private matter both Atheists and Theists alike?
-Why do almost every atheist say is proud to be one and brags about it like if it was a victorious deed and if they are so smart and all theists are dumb peasents? - why so condescending ?-
-Why do most atheist dislike or resent religious people ?
-Isn't following the good teachings of a religion better than to have no religion at all ?
-What binds a person to morals and ethics if there was no religious motivation ? if one believes in the certainty of the non-existence of a god then , why bother do good and why not commit crimes the law cant catch u doing ...
i am not trying to persuade u or invite u into abandoning ur thinking .i m just looking for answers to know more and to understand how an atheist got there ! ( i myself thought once there isn't a god for certain but i had come to a conclusion later that i am wrong)
ps : I m neither atheist nor theist , not pro religion nor against .
i just seek enlightenment :)
and btw , proving bad points in religions , does not mean atheism is right and that religion is false .
much like saying a guy is a crappy painter but that doesn't mean he cant play music . he might be a better person and artist than another great painter.
It's All about perspective and i have known enough people to be able to see from different perspectives and even Am able to play a devil's advocate at any time.
- Sorry for the long post if i could i would give u a potato :3
