This is a group for those who have broken their mental chains of religion, as well as those who have never been bound by them in the first place. There being no way to prove the existence of deities, nor anything of superstition, anything anyone says about any such superstitious notion is a guess and your guess is as good as mine.

I like how turds such as The Amazing Atheist or The Armoured Skeptic help by speeding up the degeneration process of atheism. Seems that atheism is nothing but a trend these days. People make good profit out of talking in front of a camera and acting macho when in a debate with some religious ********. Parroting the same general opinions that other atheists have and engage in perpetual circle jerking with them. Atheism is a free choice,and should remain so. I think sacred atheist monsters like Hitchens would despise what atheism represents these days.

I agree wholeheartedly. Atheism has come far from a number of ragtag independent communities drawn together by the philosophical stance of there being no gods or supernatural realms, now we find our communities beset upon by a hegemonic borg of ideologues who demand we accept a thousand other ideals as if they were an unquestionable dogma.

Whether it's the Social Justice ******** Atheism+ thrust upon us or The Amazing Atheist's nihilistic-hedonism wankery being shoved down our throats, the core philosophical principle of atheism is now packaged with revolting or just outright ludicrous ideals. Atheism is not a religion, nor is it an ideology. It is not some hegemonic behemoth we must adhere to, it is, will always be, and should remain the mere stance on the existence of the supernatural.

Yeah,atheism is now mixed with all sorts of trends and has become one dirty mess. By now every hipster kid can shout loudly about how hardcore atheist he is since he's bought some T-shirts from *insert random youtube personality preaching atheism*.
I think and feel that it is our duty as unbelievers and questioners to maintain our dignity and improve ourselves,so that people may do the same and liberate themselves from the constraints of religion. As I said,atheism is a choice one should make on his own.

Exactly. I have this sensation of pandering, profligate, opportunistic insincerity from a lot of those YouTube atheists. It's like there's never any proper discussion, anything to learn. It's just morons parroting some outlined talking point over and over again.

I feel the same way with the Anti-SJW/Feminist YouTubers. I feel like a sucker watching this ****. I feel like what I'm watching is just vultures capitalizing off of a societal trend. There's no passion, there's no sincerity. It's like a business decision. Furthermore half of the **** the leering hacks like TL;DR, Bearing, Undoomed and Harmful Opinions spew is mindless, insipid bashing of easy targets that any lame **** could do.

Maybe I'm just Jaded after the ten billionth Anti-SJW YouTuber with a silly logo copy and pastes the same format over and over again. "Show my ****** logo, cut to video, cut back to my logo making fun of it". Here's mine: I.imgur.com

ugh, the majority of atheists are left leaning (From 60-70%).
Thats a tad worrisome. That people go from believing in god, to believing the state is there to protect us and should provide more free **** & that we should protect people who don't even believe in democracy or equality.

data:

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0160289614001081

Not a fan of the state:
Victimless crimes (86% of crimes): https://www.libertariannews.org/2011/09/29/victimless-crime-constitutes-86-of-the-american-prison-population/
Democide: http://www.infowars.com/democide-government-killed-over-260-million-in-the-20th-century-poised-to-kill-billions-more-in-the-21st/

and how it funds single motherhood:

Because of the financial incentives of being unmarried (welfare) or getting divorced (alimony, half of assets purchased during marriage & marital property).

The single biggest predictor of inter-generational poverty for the single parent and child (x4), and its a predictor of numerous other negative outcomes for children. Including abuse (x10 higher, including sexual abuse), homelessness (x9), highschool dropouts, going into juvenile corrections, drug use (fatherless children in chemical abuse shelters, all three are just over x2), & suicide (just under x2). So these negative outcomes go from 30% or under in a two-parent household, towards 70-90% in a fatherless home. It also results in 4x as many rapists who where sexually abused by a single mother. To put that into perspective, rapists are 3.4x more likely to have experienced sexual abuse growing up compared to a regular person. Women who have a child before marriage are 3.6x more likely to be in poverty. So we've gone from 5% to 50%+ single motherhood since 1950, which is when welfare spending went up:
http://www.usgovernmentspending.com/spending_chart_1950_2010USk_16s1li011lcn_40t_Welfare_Spending_In_20th_Century

Two-parent family makes up a miniscule portion of welfare spending (2-5%). The answer is to reduce the incentives states provide for divorce & single motherhood.

Late 19th to early 20th century Sweden & the US reduced poverty by 1% when the state was minuscule in early 19th century. The markets that have as little redtape and taxes as possible seem to have the best economic growth (ie it was the freest market economy & obviously had the highest per capita income as a result). It changed when the government expanded in 1950, there was massive increase in government jobs, massive drop in GDP per person, poverty rates stopped dropping. Sweden is still a high rank on the EFW index since its not taxing businesses much but its growth isn't anywhere near as impressive as it was.

Compare the data of Public Spending & Wealth Growth according to OECD data
(1960-1996) pretty shows you that govt's don't bring people out of poverty & prevent its reduction.

Check out OECD.stat & https://danieljmitchell.files.wordpress.com/2014/07/21-connolly-and-li-siena-2014.pdf

I don't know how to reduce the power of the govt or if its even possible to keep it small since they can keep their power & control elections, I do think that perhaps atheists (mostly) are essentially voting for their own disenfranchisement without understand the ramifications of a big govt. I am atheist but I'm also a survivalist. We gotta be doing a better job actually finding & listening to science and empiricism that where supposedly advocates of.

The entire premise, that civilization---that organized society is an infallible tyrant in itself, is laughable. It is the representation of a people, to some extent. The only thing you can do is overthrow the system or purge it of corruption. There is no world in which governments cease to exist within the foreseeable human future and utopia sprouts out of the sheer lack of their presence.

Libertarianism is just a synonym of anarchy.
