A group for those without religion, as well as those who oppose it. Atheism and Agnosticism and Anti-theism.
I'd be considered a Relativist.
Mine can't be classified by one single title.
Well all of the ones that apply to me are Atheist, Apatheist, Nihilist, and Relativist.
To answer the question of how we are saved: We are saved though Jesus Christ who died for our sins. Forgiveness for our sins is received when you are truly sorry for what you have done and you simply ask for that forgiveness. The question "how are you saved" is not a dead end as this image suggests. To answer the question of how we know God: He speaks to us and us to Him and we do as he tells us for our own good. He loves us and if we love Him we keep his commandments.
Atheism spawned out of rebellion against authority and the desire for anarchy and selfishness.
I never remember asking you how "we" are "saved" nor do I recall any voices in my head. You may want to check your self into a Mental Asylum.
The questions are in the diagram. Why do you have such contempt and hatred?
The question had nothing to do with "saving" anyone?
"What's your world view?"
I fail to understand where I expressed contempt and hatred. I'm currently in decent health and no ones pointing a gun to my head so I think I'm pretty safe at the moment and don't need saving. Oh and about hearing voices, Id consider going to a Mental Asylum, the sooner you go the easier it will be to be treated and then those voices will go away.
Your attitude towards us is what shows your contempt and hatred. You have no right to pass judgement on us and as a US citizen you are violating freedom of religion just like all the other atheists. Our ancestors left Europe to get away from people like you so why don't you just leave us alone and spread your lies and bigotry someplace else.
yuribeat, as a member of your group, I really think you should leave discussions like this for the Christians of Moddb page. These guys have their group, we have ours. No reason we can't co-exist on a gaming website.
The freedom of religion includes not believing in anything at all. That 'right', more like a privilege, also includes freedom of speech but this is a website, there are no laws, only rules of the website owner(s).
We have no rights here.
"Freedom of religion"
Anyone can express their religious beliefs or the lack there of.
"Freedom of expression\"
Anyone can say whatever they want in whatever method they choose.
If anything you just gave me something to use in defense of your flagging of probably everything since you just don't agree with it; childish.
Not really since the way Atheists demonstrate and try to influence the information we "religious" people see is a violation of freedom of religion. Atheism is not a religion and is therefor not protected under that. Free speech does not give one the right to try to interfere with religious matters. Also, freedom of religion does not mean "freedom from religion", it means we should be able to do what we do without you people breathing down our necks and complaining and criticizing all of it like that Atheists of America organization does all the time. If you could go back in time to when this nation was founded I can guarantee that our founding fathers would set the record straight and filter out the new twisted meanings modern society has given to some of our rights and freedoms.
Alright, so my lack of belief in something is illegal? That's like arresting me because I don't think the invisible unicorn behind me that I can't touch, see, or hear is real. It's simply ridiculous. I'd love the oh so many deistic and agnostic founding fathers to straighten this freedom of religion thing out for you.
Yuribeat, I hate to say it, but I agree with Winston here.
You're saying that atheists have no right to pass judgement on us, but you are right here passing judgement on them. It says in the Bible that "It is not for man to judge, but for God"
Winston and the others have the right to believe in anything they want to, just as we do.
Yes, I disagree with him on religious things, but I would not want someone else forcing their views on me, and I will never do that to another person.
As Scion said, we have our group, they have theirs.
Passing judgement is not what I'm doing, I'm stating facts. I also did not say that atheism is illegal I said that their behavior towards believers and attempts are an infringement on freedom of religion and that freedom of religion does not mean "freedom from religion".
Yuri, your missing the point. They have their right to preach their beliefs just as much as we do.
Please Leave this group alone and please keep discussions like this on our own page.
No, if they don't want an answer then the question shouldn't be posted. This started off as nothing but that and it turned into a fight when he started insulting our beliefs and saying that we all need mental help.
Yuri, they aren't fighting with us, if anything, your picking fights with them.
You can't fight with everybody who disagrees with you, and you certainly shouldn't make such a big deal of it.
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the **** ignoramus.
Nietzsche wasn't a nihilist. Nietzsche believed in concepts like the Übermensch (super human) and that there is no God, only humanity, among the stars.
Yes, but he was one of the first to really define it.
Ah god(ironic, for lack of better term), let's not start a karma war here.
I'm a Nihilist, which i think is a good thing..
Interesting, I am a relativist.
Having looked more into this, I have realized that I am actually categorized as an existentialist.
Existentialist, Humanist, Naturalist and Relativist. Meaning is found everywhere...oh, and I'm a Liberal but that's not the question here, is it?
I'm a Humanist!
