The Problem With Atheists

atheist_signIs the  “Freedom From Religion Foundation” Really Free?

It doesn’t seem free at all to me.  Free to be glum, free to glower, free to spit in the eye of religion…the problem with Atheists is they aren’t FOR anything.  They’re the among the most negative, contrary people I’ve met.  This sign is a perfect example of what I’m talking about.  Instead of celebrating great secular minds, or creating a holiday celebrating “the winter solstice” or any other happening of their choosing, they spend their time and money making a sign to drag down and attack other’s beliefs.

They proclaim every year during the holiday season that they’re “Free From Religion”, but how free can they be?  These doom-and-gloomers celebrate their beliefs by raining on other people’s parades!  If the best thing they’ve got going for them is this sign, that’s a pretty sad statement.

Advice to the Atheists: build your own parade!  Find some happiness!  Good grief.

Atheists’ National Holiday?

by Chuck Norris

Atheists from England to the West Coast of America are stepping up their efforts this year to make a bigger antagonistic splash on the Christmas scene. From London and Washington, D.C., buses to Colorado billboards, skeptics are skewering religions with little respect to the adherents of the religions.

At the forefront is a group’s government-sanctioned posting of a sign by a Nativity scene in the Capitol of Washington state (and now also in Wisconsin and Illinois): “At this season of THE WINTER SOLSTICE may reason prevail. There are no gods, no devils, no angels, no heaven or hell. There is only our natural world. Religion is but myth and superstition that hardens hearts and enslaves minds.”

I am a patriot, and I believe that atheists are free to believe, speak and post whatever they want. This is America, and that’s their First Amendment right. But to do so with harassment and hatred under the guise of free speech is despicable. An anti-religious poster filled with spite is in no way equal to a religious symbol, such as a Nativity scene. Where are the political correctness police when religious followers are the victims?

    The sign is pretty pathetic.

    There is so much good worth celebrating, no matter what your personal beliefs. I just hate to see wasted thought and energy. Negative thought is wasted thought.

    “I just hate to see wasted thought and energy. Negative thought is wasted thought.”

    Agreed. Please think more positively about them, or at least less negatively. It looks like a sign celebrating the winter solstice, (and reason) which humans have been celebrating since time immemorial, and Christians recently adopted in an attempt to absorb the practices of the other pagan religions.

    I am sure that it is just a coincidence that Jesus was born on the day marked as the winter solstice on the Julian calendar, along with a dozen other deities across cultures and myths. Or that Christians also adopted the pagan customs of the yule log, and homage to the trees of the druidic religions.

    It’s probably a coincidence also that the ressurection, who date is not fixed and dependent of the astronomical event of the full moon, also correspond with EOSTAR, the wiccan fertility festival.

    Happy holidays may reason prevail. Goodwill to all men(women and children).

    Oh the point was maybe you should leave the atheists alone to celebrate the winter and spring solstices, and find your own holidays. Or at least leave them be, to happily celebrate the lifegiving sun and the natural world.

    The calendar day on which Christmas is celebrated is completely immaterial. It’s the celebration and the message which are the reason for the season. There is no doubt about the actual day being some other time, and the history of various winter celebrations replaced by Christianity is well known….that is not at all the point and has nothing to do with the celebration of Christmas.

    The point still stands, what kind of celebration is an attack? Is this sign a signification of their brand of celebration at the cost of others?

    How depressing. Who’s brilliant idea was it to make a sign that basically says, “Everyone needs to be realistic and understand that hope is for uneducated fools. This life is all there is…after death there’s no joy, or growth, or rewards. Just complete nonexistance and nothingness. Have a nice day.”

    Funny how the religious are always depicted as the serious, morose ones that aren’t allowed any fun.
