Why they were not doing what some of the more prominent ones were saying they should do. Form more atheist churches.iskander wrote: ↑Tue Oct 23, 2018 11:25 amWhat did you expect to learn from them?Gnostic Bishop wrote: ↑Tue Oct 23, 2018 10:15 amYou are an atheist. Ok.
I have spoken to many atheists but have not really learned anything from them.
I have also studied many religions and since my target group, so to speak, have little to no knowledge of the Eastern religions, they are of little value and mostly just mimic Gnostic Christianity.
I also wanted to see how many, if any, were really more like agnostics. Few were.
They tend to know scriptures a bit more than some theists and did read them more as written without reading their own biases into them.
I also sought the more social justice attitudes in them but did not find them particularly interested in converting poorly thinking Christians.
They are quite polarized and gave no respect or pity to those who did not recognize that religions are more about appeasing their hivish or groupish gene than for a belief in a God. In their own way, they are as obstinate as theists who also do not want to know more about how and why we all are as we are.
Tribalism is both a blessing and a curse. Mostly a curse in this day and age. We are the weakest animal on the planet and it is not too surprising that we are also quite tribal. There are as many sheeple atheists as there are in religions. The religious seem more dedicated to their cause though even now as they see their ranks dwindling as more and more people recognize that religions are just cons and basically frauds.
