Since religious people also think the thousands of religions and gods are a load of rubbish, apart from one, how can they blame atheists for just not believing in one extra god than them?

  1. I am religious and I believe that other religions are just other culture’s versions of the same believe. Also I understand why people are atheists, I mean, I am neither blind nor stupid. But I chose to believe because for me it’s a good way to stay positiv and to still hope for something. Also I respect your believe, whatever it is, as long as you let others live their lifes the way they want

  2. I consider myself somewhat religious, but I totally get atheism.

    I considered myself atheist for a while, but kind of came back after learning that I couldn’t take the bible literally – like, most of it. I don’t believe there was really a giant magical boat that housed every animal on Earth. I don’t believe there was a burning bush that spoke. In my mind, it has to be symbolic, misinterpreted, just misunderstood by the people writing it or something else. I think it’s meant to prove a point or teach a lesson. Whether or not there’s a God, I still think it teaches good life morals. I’m no theologian, but I’m pretty sure most religions are fairly similar at their core.

  3. I’m religious, and don’t care what you believe. Do you, just don’t be an ass about it (i.e., don’t push your beliefs on others, or be a jerk to someone because their beliefs are different).

  4. >Since religious people also think the thousands of religions and gods are a load of rubbish, apart from one, how can they blame atheists for just not believing in one extra god than them?

    I don’t think it’s wise to generalize, I also don’t think many of them blame atheist for their lack of belief. This is very ignorant question.

  5. This is a stupid argument and I never understood why it bothers me. Until I realized they do not think of thousands of other gods at all, a lot of them are unaware of those gods, most are aware of only few. And then there are muslims, for whom religion literally tells to smash everything related to other religions, thus blowing up caves with thousands of Bidha statues, or smashing a 2000 years old budha statue they found while building a house, and uploading it to Twatter.
