The theory that religion is a force for peace, often heard among the religious right and its allies today, does not fit the facts of history.

It is wrong always, everywhere, and for anyone, to believe anything upon insufficient evidence.

How do you feel about parents forcing their kids to go to church? Recently, my mother has been making me go to church after she found out I’m not as religious as she thought I was.

Thats very typical of parents when they found out their kids are drifting apart from religion. I know it sucks, but I don’t know, depending on your situation you could try and reason with your mother and say you don’t want to go and stand up to yourself. If that’s not an option then try to came up with other ways to not have to go, like say you’re feeling sick or you have to study, if you have other family member that thinks you shouldn’t go, talk to them and ask them to talk to your mother so she doesn’t force you to go anymore

As long as there are those who are willing to shed blood and take innocent life in the name of religion, the name of God, the world will never know a true and lasting peace.

I think religions are like monarchies. There might be a good king here and there but the system is problematic. Too easy to exploit.

If you pray for rain long enough, it eventually does fall. If you pray for floodwaters to abate, they eventually do. The same happens in the absence of prayers.

Christians often threaten atheists with eternal torture. But if we say that they’re delusional, they will tell us that we’re being rude.

Just a heads up I was a Hebrew Israelite and they take everything in the Bible seriously. They believe a black Jesus is going to come back and save the Jews. The women have internalized misogyny and some even believe rape is a beautiful thing as it brings two together. Anon could very well be a woman. It’s sad.

To be honest I don’t care if it was a woman or a man. I’m done with this

There is no reason to follow Bronze Age ideology in the 21st Century.

No no, I knew that, haha. It doesn't matter what you say to the person anyway, it's about what you feel on the inside. I just thought it wasn't a nice thing to dismiss someone's prayers for you, even in your head. Instead of thinking, "yeah, but that won't solve my problem." I would've thought something like, "Yeah, I don't think them praying will solve my problem, but it's so sweet that this person is thinking of me and hoping my situation will improve, and I appreciate that."

I don’t expect them to solve my problem and I do respect their thought because I know they are trying to help but I still don’t like it
