One argument that I always here from stupid religious bigots is the one that all atheists are ignorant. That we are closed minded. I always find my self laughing out loud at this weak argument whenever it is presented to me.
The opposite is in fact the truth. Atheists are actually the most opened mined people on the planet. The fact that we reject god is proof that we are open minded. The only way to see the truth (That god doesn’t exist) is to be open minded. If in fact we were close minded as these religies often say, we would be as submissive and obedient as they are to their false god.
And just because we reject your god doesn’t make us ignorant. You dumb ass religies (Creationists specifically) rejecting irrefutable evidence for evolution is ignorant. THAT is close mindedness. Belief in god is just proof of close mindedness and ignorance. I believe this quote sums up my point quite nicely:
“What is God? I think, believers, that God s the opinions that you can’t otherwise justify. God is your intellectual laziness. God is your ego. God is that which you need God to be. God is X. God is the sum of all your willful ignorance. God is a convenience. God is a social adhesive. God is your bigotry. God is an excuse. God is your clever ploy to avoid thinking, responsibility, and the need to develop a sense of social justice. God is your lie. What is God? God isn’t real.” -TJ Kincaid
This was one of the first atheist quote I ever read and really understood. For an open minded person (AKA an atheist), as you are reading it, you can’t help but nod your head in agreement at everything TJ Kincaid is saying. God really is just an excuse. An excuse to do evil in his name. An excuse to pray for your kids to get better instead of taking them to a doctor (I have a post about this coming very soon). God is an excuse to not think for oneself.
I have a question for you religies. If god gave you free will (Which you all claim he does), why does he want you to be obedience and unquestioning? Part of freewill is the ability to question things. Free will is defined as “free and independent choice; voluntary decision”. But your god tells you that this is wrong. Yet he (according to you religies) gives you this ability to think for oneself anyways.
So the next time you (believers) call an atheist ignorant (or close minded), just remember that you are actually the ignorant close minded one. Not us. You. The believer. The Creationist. The idiotic, obedient, unintelligent bigot who isn’t allowed to think for yourself.
Atheists are opened minded, intelligent, freethinkers, and most certainly NOT ignorant.
I’ll be posting something on the dumb fuck religious bastards who let their kids die because they “pray” for them to get better rather than taking them to a doctor. This is an issue that really pisses me off. I’ll have it posted by Saturday.
Thanks for reading!
