Why Atheists Are The Coolest People On Earth

Coming out today as Polytranspecies-Curious was one of the hardest things I have ever done. We progressives have made tremendous strides in advancing LGBTQ+ rights and acceptance, but many still pass hateful judgement on transpecies people. Whilst most corporates’ internet sites proudly display sincere diversity mission statements, they are entirely silent when it comes to ‘furry’ people.

Privileged Christians are at the head of the list of haters. They claim that their’s is a religion of love, but then invoke something called ‘natural law’. According to natural law, there exists a body of unchanging moral principles and absolute truths which govern natural (including human) behaviour. In short, under this unaccomodating religion, it is considered ‘sinful’ for people who identify as animals to have the necessary surgery.

This arcane way of thinking is totally contrary to the moral relativism inherent in Current Year, one of the key principles of which is that it is wrong to judge others. It’s also hypocritical as we’re pretty confident that the Prophet Melchizedek, one of Saint Paul’s apostles, said ‘Judge not, lest you be judged’. Frankly, if Christianity wants to be taken seriously, it needs to change its ‘dogmatic’ beliefs to keep up with the times.

This is one reason why atheists are the coolest people on Earth. As natural liberals, they totally support laissez-faire social and physical engineering. So long as there is consent and nobody gets hurt, what right does anyone have to criticise someone else’s actions?

Here is a selection of other reasons why atheism is incredibly cool:

  • In debates,  an as atheist, the audience will always be on your side – Pull up any You Tube debate between say professional atheist Richard Dawkins or Stephen Fry and some Christian theologian and you will notice that it always the former’s snarky one-liners which get the most applause. On the other hand, when the theologian bleats on about ‘the sacredness of life’ or ‘human dignity’, he always gets verbally abused by a hostile audience. If the theologian somehow gets the upper hand, all you need to do is shout ‘WHAT ABOUT THE CRUSADES?’ and you will be greeted by a raucous cheer to change momentum back your way. Who would want to be on the losing side?
  • Atheists have a rich sense of humor and irony – In debates, Atheists are often challenged to prove that there is no God. An amusing reply is to ask the question, ‘can you prove that the Flying Spaghetti Monster does not exist?’, a reference to the pretend Pastafarian religion invented by Bobby Henderson. Like a fine wine, this joke only improves with age (and repetition).
  • Most college professors are atheists – earn extra marks by making snide comments about Christians in your exam papers and essays.
  • Anti-establishment – atheists are about as edgy and anti-establishment are they come. Go on, rebel, and wear a collander on your head in a reference to pastafarianism – like the chap in the featured image.
  • Comment forums – Somewhat paradoxically, like the cool kids smoking behind the bike-shed, atheists like to hang out in their hundreds under articles with even the slightest reference to God. Their comments are incredibly funny, well-researched and demonstrate deep scriptural knowledge.
  • Atheists are much smarter than believers – Throughout history, almost all famous scientists, philosophers and inventors were atheists. Without their insights and putting everything to ’empirical proof’, where would we be. Occasionally, something weird happens in the world which can’t be properly explained such as this. However, moving swiflty on, it is a fact that believers basically lack intelligence.

Atheists are so awesome. I love their snarky comebacks against Christian Fundamentalists.

One of the coolest things about Atheists is their belief in human equality which they contrive somehow out of nature but doesn’t really exist in the Darwinism they cling to. This just shows how dynamic and adaptive Atheists can be when faced with difficult concepts of good and evil. I just love how they can espouse theories of moral social justice without any philosophical foundation for it. They are truly the great thinkers of our time.

Atheists believe that morality is subjective, but that hasn’t stopped them from constantly passing moral judgment on people. Why should it?

Atheists also rightfully focus almost exclusively on Christianity, and almost never on Islam or Judaism. Some would argue that they do this because Christians are the only ones nice enough to engage them in reasoned debate, which would make atheists bullies who pick on the easiest target they can find. But we know that Christianity is in fact the most brutal and immoral religion based on the overwhelmingly negative coverage it receives in the accredited media.

In addition, atheists, being science and fact based, are almost always progressives and believe in socialism and communism, which has been proven time and time again to produce astoundingly positive results. They also reject any notion of objective morality, while judging people morally all the time, which is fine because everything is relative.

I have to completely disagree with this article! Some of the most noted atheists, such as Dawkins, are horrible Islamophobes. Please see:

“It’s tempting to say all religions are bad, and I do say all religions are bad, but it’s a worse temptation to say all religions are equally bad because they’re not,” the “Science in the Soul” author said, the U.K. Telegraph reported Sunday. “If you look at the actual impact that different religions have on the world, it’s quite apparent that at present the most evil religion in the world has to be Islam.”

The ones who criticize Islam are not real atheists. Just like feminists who criticize Islam are not real feminists, and black people who support Trump are not real black people.

I’m Muslim, but I still support atheists. I even tried to get my DMV photo with a pasta strainer on my head so I could mock stupid fundies. Those bigots told me to take it off!

I am atheist, but I am a Muslim atheist. This is why the ramblings of Christian atheists trigger me. A Muslim atheist can criticize any religion, provided that the religion is not called Islam.

I do not think that Islamophobia is limited to one or few atheists! In fact, most of them are rabid Islamophobes. Salon is calling them out:

The New Atheists became the new Islamophobes, their invectives against Muslims resembling the rowdy, uneducated ramblings of backwoods racists rather than appraisals based on intellect, rationality and reason. “Islam, more than any other religion human beings have devised, has all the makings of a thoroughgoing cult of death,” writes Harris, whose nonprofit foundation Project Reason ironically aims to “erode the influence of bigotry in our world.”

For Harris, the ankle-biter version of the Rottweiler Dawkins, suicide bombers and terrorists are not aberrations. They are the norm. They have not distorted their faith by interpreting it wrongly. They have lived out their faith by understanding it rightly. “The idea that Islam is a ‘peaceful religion hijacked by extremists’ is a fantasy, and is now a particularly dangerous fantasy for Muslims to indulge,” he writes in “Letter to a Christian Nation.”

Hmmm this is messing with my head. Does all this mean that Atheists, Muslims, Jews, Feminists, progressives, the LGBTQ+ community, Hispanics, Blacks, accredited corporations like Apple and Ben and Jerry’s, communists and socialists can’t all get along? Being a progressive is hard sometimes. I think I need to put on my pajamas, drink hot chocolate and snuggle up with my CRT textbook for a while to form an opinion on this.

Black Lives Matter

Yeah, we really need a CRT analysis on this. Maybe the rankings pyramid and/or the privilege checker have the answers. I just know I support both Islam and atheism.

I need to retreat to a safe space post haste…I’m feeling quite triggered.

I know, details are so confusing while large picture is clear – everything is the fault of heterosexual white males! Perhaps the whiteness and heterosexuality of Hitchens and Dawkins can be blamed?

We need to hire more lesbian CRT professors to sort it out.

Black Lives Matter

I think you’ve hit the nail on the head. White heteronormatives can’t open their mouths without saying something bigoted.

Let’s do a CRT thought experiment. YES, the atheist is in the right, but then what happens if they’re murdered by a black? Well then they had it coming due to slavery and the Crusades.

If they notice how many jews work at CNN, then they are “anti-semitic.” Any white person can become Literally Hitler at any time.

So I don’t see how all this is unreconcilable. White people exist in a state of pursuit of atonement, like Sisyphus combined with the Red Queen. If ANYTHING happens to them that a group on the victim pyramid does not like then they revert into an oppressor. The stone rolls downhill and they must run faster to remain in place.

Even if a white person, a liberal atheist, were in Africa supporting vibrant people of color there, when they get chopped into pieces, it will be the fault of their own existence. Of whiteness. Get it?

trav777

It’s called “intersectionality.”
The victim pyramid can be like King of the Mountain. Womyn and womyn-who-were-born-gender-identified-as-men-at-birth-but-who-subsequently-got-their-penises-removed were embroiled in an argument over whose vaginas smelt worse.

In these types of situations, it’s best to remember that you’re a fucking white male. And say nothing. Leave the room.

Before I checked my privilege, a long time ago, I took a different tack- the opportunity to open the door to a room which contained a bunch of blacks arguing with one another and say “you’re ALL full of shit” and this was, I’m ashamed, just to witness the cat 4 chimpout that ensued. I was very non-progressive in my younger days. I’m so glad to have seen the light and checked my privilege.

Pbier has come out as “Polytranspecies-Curious”. Pbier now identifies himself as a bull, and the article is his way of shitting. A whole lot of BS.

I used to think California was one of the more progressive states, but then I read about California’s three-strikes law. Now I know California is just as fucked up as the rest of Amerikkka. I guess I shouldn’t expect much from a nation founded on slavery and genocide. You activists in the U.S. have a lot of work to do!

Pbier makes a good case for atheism as a religion onto itself. He needs to cover the income/donations part, i.e. where is his gofundme account?
