From the outside - an Orthodox Jew, from the inside - a Kofer
כִּי לֹא מַחְשְׁבוֹתַי מַחְשְׁבוֹתֵיכֶם, וְלֹא דַרְכֵיכֶם דְּרָכָי
Erk... China is mostly atheist/agnostic/irreligious so I can't credit this vid too highly
Name one primarily atheistic community which has had a low level of violence and has reproduced at a replacement level. Never happened. After massacring each other for the first half of the 20th century, Europeans have stopped having kids are being replaced by Muslims. So much for atheism.
Hi JP,Since when do you watch untzniusdika videos? :)You have created another straw man here. The main point here was that people claim atheists are evil because all 20th century genocides were done by atheists. Some answers:- They conveniently forget that these evil people ascribed to socio-political ideologies as dogmatic as religion itself and not to atheism as a motivator. - The atheist does not really desire an atheist government but a secular one, a free one. - Saying that atheists are evil because of the above is just like saying that all Catholics (or Haredim?) are pedophiles.Now with regards to your challenge: How do you define violence? Is killing homosexuals violence? And how do you define communities? Do you seriously think these statistics exist on such a small level? Why not look at crime in general or murder stats (available here, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_intentional_homicide_rate and El Salvador, a christian country has the highest homocide rates)? Who will measure and report this violence? E.g., in haredi communities nothing much is reported anyways.The uberstraw man is the 'replacement level' condition. Atheist communities can still have relatively little crime which would disprove the notion that atheism necessarily leads to genocide. Regardless of the viability of their replacement level, especially if they manage to be mekarev some intellifundies.
Atheism simply means: Do anything you want to do provided that it won't cause you to be arrested.The result is that atheists are generally hedonists, debauched libertines or murderers. There is not and never will be a viable atheistic society.Sweden and Japan, the great symbols of atheist success (although neither country considers itself to atheistic) are not reproducing at a replacement level and will face extinction.
OK, so you don't want to listen, fine."Atheists are generally hedonists, debauched libertines or murderers" is copied out of which scientific textbook exactly?Reproducing at replacement level or not is irrelevant for the point made in the video, that's not what the video was about.You just want to grab every opportunity to slander atheists, not even sure if you read anything or saw the whole video.
I've actually only found one good atheisthttp://jewishphilosopher.blogspot.com/2008/01/chandra-good-atheist.html
I rest my case.
Please get him some help. That was a meandering, convoluted , self-indulgent and repulsive link.
It's only the truth that hurts. Atheism is a religion of death.Remember Jim Jones, the guy who did the Jonestown Massacre? He was an atheist.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jonestown#Deaths_in_Jonestownhttp://jonestown.sdsu.edu/AboutJonestown/Tapes/Tapes/TapeTranscripts/Q622.htmlAnd let's not forget a gem like Jeff Dahmerhttp://jewishphilosopher.blogspot.com/2008/07/atheists-in-their-own-words.html
Once again, isolated examples are not a valid sampling. Once could do the very same with religious people who commit horrible crimes. Once could even consider a newly religious individual who abandons his parents and cuts off all contact with them to be a heinous person.
I guess every depraved atheist is an isolated. Pol Pot, Reinhard Heydrich, Mao, Jeff Dahmer, a million would be just a million isolated cases.When the last living human staggers out a gay bar and dies of a heroin overdose, maybe then atheists will admit that they have a problem.
Lots of fallacies in this video. Everything she said can be juxtaposed on atheism. She says not all atheists favor an atheist state, well not all religious people favor a theocratic state. Hitler was not a christian, everyone knows he used christianity when it suited him. Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot are only invoked by theists when atheists use the violence card. Suffice to say all ideologies can be misused for wicked ends, even secular ones.
Shalmo: She made this video to show the idiocy of anti-atheist rhetoric. Just for your enjoyment.
Hey, jewish Philosopher, stop being an insult to your religion and try to do something about that space in your head where a brain should have been.Atheism ISNT A RELIGION. ALL it is, is a lack of belief in a deity. Alright? That's all atheism is. An Atheist could be ANYONE, could believe ANYTHING else. But I, simply do not believe anything without evidence. I don't have FAITH, and don't take things without evidence, unlike fools like yourself. I said you are a fool, because the ignorance and arrogance of your idiotic comments reveals so. So stop embarrassing yourself, and the rest of the human race by your mindnumbingly stupid and insulting comments, alright?
