Let me put it this way: If you need the threat of eternal punishment to be a good person you are not a good person.

There’s a lot of reasons, but the main one I got growing up is that theists don’t see the goodness and value of a godless world. They make comments such as:
« Where do your morals come from without god? »
« We are meaningless without god »
« If god isn’t watching over you, then can’t you just do whatever you want? »

Ah, I see. They don't understand that this is our opinion and we have different opinions than them.

I understand that you have a different opinion, and I respect your right to have one, but religion isn’t an opinion, it’s either true or false
0 ups, 4m
Well, true or false depending on the religion of the person, if I understand what you mean right-

Science makes me think that god isn't real. Like, If we were animals and evolved, (which is a true fact), then how come adam and eve were normal humans, evolved and all???

Isn't Atheism a religion of it's own?

Atheism isnt a religion. The whole point is that we have no religion. Just like being agender. It has a gender label and symbol but it isnt a gender.

Exactly. Couldn't have said it better myself.

I think that would be agnosticism, but I could be wrong because I haven't studied atheism much.

Agnosticism is the belief that humans can't understand how the universe was created(I think), atheism is just not having a religion.
0 ups, 3m
I have always understood that Agnosticism is the belief that humans can't possible know whether there is or is not a God, & if there is what it's nature is (like whether God' s a Methodist or a Presbyterian or a Hindu or...
..or even unlike any worldly religion describes).
While Atheism is the belief there is no God(s).

It's always seemed like the religion of the impossibly of a deity to me.

It is the complete absence of every aspect of religion.
From the very structure & organization of each one, including their hierarchies;
the benefits believed to be conferred by adherence to specifications (like going to Heaven if you ____); there are rituals & ceremonies; the sacrifices (think Lent & thyeing [sorry about the spelling] among others); the restrictions to using one's own judgement; there is big money involved; there are people that derive personal power &/or a living: from the clergy to the Vatican to the tv evangelists; they preach dire consequences to those that don't participate.

No question about the co-opting of religion for personal gain. Been going on for a long time.

But is it a problem of religion or a problem with man in general?

But Religion is the construct of man, so is there a difference?
0 ups, 4m
Atheism is NOT a religion. Religions have prayers, songs, worship of a character or characters.
Atheism is simply the absence of a belief in a god or gods.
Even religious people are atheists concerning the gods they don’t believe in. Atheists just take it one god further.

Atheism is also a construct of mam

You do realize the same could easily be said about religion...don't you ? That it doesn't make solid sense. ...In fact, isnt that the point of "having faith"?

Fight them about it ??

....And what if Atheists or Muslims or whoever sees different from you took your attitude that others are "wrong" & as such they have the right to fight you about it?

Wow, you obviously don't understand the real world, so lemme spell it out for you: By "fight" it means to argue with them about their abnormal beliefs, not to punch them in the face.
