The common thread to all athiest thinking ,I would assume, is that the world would be better off without Christianity.

Nope. I know lots of cool Christians. We could just do with less fuckwits like you.

Actually, my thinking is that the world would be better off without RELIGION...

All atheist thinking? Most certainly not.
Some? Quite possibly, given your religion's track record.
You folks have only been wrong for...close to 2000 years now. How many more chances do you want us to give you?

Your train of thought got derailed at 'assume.' Remember, the first three letters of assume are ass.

Wow, that's so right.
I'm not saying Christians are bad, just Christianity.

No... just better off with blind faith, usually.

No, just the just the kind that compels people to hate, kill, and strive for the power to compel others do the same. Same as in virtually every other religion.

No, some atheists believe in this little thing called "letting people believe what whey want".
Try it sometimes.

technically? yes it would. but I know many Christian and Catholic people I'm good friends with. I respect their beliefs, they respect my non-beliefs. the difference between them and you? they aren't assholes.

Expand that notion to religion in general, and we're getting somewhere. Though I endured an upbringing as a homosexual child of a Christian parent, I've seen the absolute travesty that's Sharia, the faith-required genital mutilation Jews undergo, the ignorance of basic science other faiths espouse, unsafe dietary or medical practices...
Dustbin's in the corner, religion. Go park. Your buddy faith can stay with its friends, though; I'm cool with that.

All atheists, by definitions, think there is no god, and that therefore all religions are false.
Most think that it is better when people don't fool themselves, so they think we'd be better off without any religion.
Some, mostly in the western world, concentrate on Christianity, because it is the most influent religion where they live.

The world would certainly be better off without the ignorance, bigotry, fear and hatred engendered by some aspects of some religions. I don't give a toss what fantasies people choose to believe in, but when they use them as justification to infringe upon the lives of others they've stepped over the line.

not at all, all religion really.
Religion has acted sometimes to limit human conduct in a good way, but its good is outweighed by it excesses.
Kill in the name of Jesus, and there is no excuse you should be allowed to exist.

Well, you assume wrong
11/6/2011 4:48:12 PM
christianity is not necessary for anything beneficial to society. any more questions?

I'm an agnostic, and I do not in any way believe that Christianity(or religion) should go any time soon. However, numbskulls like you should.

Christians aren't the only theists around, stupid.
The world might be better off without religion. We would at least have fewer wars between sunni and shia, between protestants and catholics, etc.

- Nothing in the definition of atheist says anything about Christianity.
- There have been atheist long before Christianity existed.
- Not every atheist wants all religion to stop existing, some of us think of it more in the vein of “life and let life”.
So I would say your assumption stands on very shaky ground.
5/29/2013 7:15:30 AM
Oh I don't know about that, I think a lot of us see the moderate Christians like we see Knickelback fans, keep that shit to yourselves and we have no problems with you.
5/29/2013 4:54:06 PM
Given that there's nothing good about religion that can't be found elsewhere...

I think the world would be better off with more dancing, does that help ?
7/14/2014 9:55:06 AM
Well, that's not THE common thread. Some people do believe that I'm sure. But quite a bit of people as well think that religion is fine, but do not believe it. There is no common thread to atheist thinking really.
