First of all, when you order aomeone to kill yourself, you ere atill responsible for letting that guy kill yourself because in this logic you wanted that guy to kill you its not like the guy you hired to kill yourself wanted to kill you. Second of all, can stop acting like a edgy or a cool atheist pls? I read most of your comments that you replied and no of them had an actual answer that explained why atheist are smarter than religious people.
2019-11-16 21:29

Thats not how it works? Well than you are telling me that you will not go hell because you eant someone else to kill you rather than yoo doing it? Its the smae thing, tou want the guy to kill you and so he does. Than why did religouabe people didnt hire someone else to kill them rather than they doing it? I read the tfile and it still doesnt proove anything, only prople who lives their lifes on religion are either rtupid or not intelligent. As you know there is also many other religious people in the world that also avhived great thigs for humans. So what i am telling you is that being religious or atheist has nothing to do with being smart or intelligent. Its mostly about how hhe person chooses to fallow his life. Thy can be both religious and pray for god while trying to achive and do something that is good for voth humans and the world. Also how old are tou that you are creating threads like this and saying that tou are an atheist?

Actually no. It doesn't exist while its not proven to. I mean, I don't know if there are fairies in my garden. If I search for them as much as I want to and don't find anything, its more logical to think that they don't exist because there is literally nothing that indicates they do.
2019-11-17 16:01
the smart choice is "no" until there is actual evidence for "yes" absence of evidence is weak evidence of absence. if there was something, probably some human would have seen it or thought of it in the past couple hundred thousand years. but we have 0 proven recorded miracles. no sightings of bearded men in white robes in the sky. so god probably doesnt exist. its the same for unicorns and fairies or pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, as guy above me pointed out. can you be asolutely sure? no. but you can safely guess it doesnt exist and no one can ever prove you wrong. so thats the smart guess.

It's "very strong" evidence for an incredibly weak, almost insignificant relationship. As in the relationship almost certainly exists, and it is almost certainly very weak. (Now please go back to reddit please, there's enough cringy teen atheists here already)

What does that mean?
2019-11-17 02:24
it means its significant
2019-11-17 10:42
I'll give you an actual answer. IRR is basically a measurement of how similar studies' results are. The paragraph is saying that there is a significant similarity in the findings of all the studies. Again, this means that most studies found a very similar, weak negative relationship between intelligence and religiosity. TLDR: He posted further proof of my original point and somehow tried to claim it as a counterpoint.
2019-11-17 16:31
lol. Stop making up facts. Nowhere it said that relationship is weak.
2019-11-17 17:05
>“The evidence that there is a negative relation between intelligence and religiosity is very strong. But the effect size of the relation is small. This means that there are factors besides intelligence that explain why people are or are not religious. It also means that although more intelligent people tend to be less religious on the average, predicting religiosity from intelligence for individuals is fallible,” Zuckerman told PsyPost. Also, from the study itself, the R-Squared is 4%. Which is quite literally almost as weak as a relationship between two things can be (0% being the weakest, 100% being the strongest) At this point, I truly hope you are baiting.
2019-11-18 09:18
I don't think you understand what IRR means. That paragraph reiterates literally exactly what I said.
2019-11-17 16:26
Lol ye significant IVs insignificant. Totally same lol

2019-11-17 22:29
>here is scientific evidence that atheists are smarter than Christians Actually, the science says that intelligence is pretty much irrelevant to religiosity >ok but just like look at people, lol Great counterpoint. I'm not even Christian but you guys are truly braindead

2019-11-17 01:21
Well ofc its not as organized as Judaism, Christianity or Islam, atheism is a religious worldview. As atheist are saying as a fact that there is no god/gods, where the other religous people says as a fact that there is a god or gods that exists. Atheism is a religious worldview because it claims to know something fundamental about reality that hasn’t been or can’t really be scientifically proven. Like the other religous people, atheists operate out of a foundational faith or belief that shapes their perceiving, thinking, and living in the world. (but maybe not as an extent as the other religions) But its not like atheism, judaism, christianity and/or islam are a kind of blind faith since it has been developed thrue the years from human experienced evidence that supports their worldview. For example neither have proved whether life has a meaning, Christians, jews and muslims believe life has a meaning because of their primary belief in a good creator/god who guarantees life’s intrinsic meaning. And atheists primary belief that god doesn't exist means that the universe just accidently emerged, with no meaning what so ever, and its up to us humans to give life its meaning. Thats what so puzzling with these brilliant atheists invites us to think like that just because we cant observe god/gods through a microscope or a telescope, and therefore other kinds of faiths is silly and dangerous. They do not take into account that the normaly working scientific method simply isn't geared to make definitive metaphysical pronouncements. In their attempt to reach the truth, they have swapped their own version of scientific dogma for religious dogma. Our culture today has largely exchanged older, pre-modern religious beliefs as assumptions about the world for modern atheistic assumptions. Because of the industrial, scientific, and technological revolutions of the past centuries, life in the Western world today leaves little room for questions of god/gods. This has resulted in a generally atheistic culture and worldview rather than the religous culture and worldview of Christendom, judaism and islam. Many people have migrated from religious faith and church life to agnosticism, atheism, and secularism. They are the religious “nones” on surveys, or those who call themselves “spiritual but not religious.” Young people today live in a world where it is hard to believe in God. Their grandparents lived in a world where it was hard not to believe in God. And Western secular governments tend to default to the atheistic worldview in an effort to be inclusive. Both theism and atheism, therefore, operate out of a primary and foundational belief or faith that results in a particular worldview. Both attempt to offer a comprehensive account of reality. If the goal is, as someone said, “living with the grain of the universe,” then you’ll live according to how you discern the grain from either your theistic or atheistic starting point. Did you know that the earliest Christians were derided as atheists? It was because Christians didn’t worship the Greek and Roman gods or the Roman emperor as divine, refusing to give their allegiance to anyone or anything other than Jesus Christ and refusing to conform their lives to the pattern of their idolatrous and pagan neighbors. Christians today would benefit from exploring afresh how the Lord over all calls us not to be conformed to the religious patterns of this atheistic world. What, like atheists, do Christians not believe? (exept the creation of the universe, but its kinda doubtfull eitherway, just think about it)

Lol. Props to you if this is not copy pasta. However you absolutely do not know what is atheism and a thought process behind it. Where did you get the idea that atheists say that they know something about god, creation of the universe, etc? They do not. They argue that all the current religions do not have enough proofs for god's existence, therefore idea about god should not be even considered as an option. Your whole post is build on an incorrect premise and has nothing of value.
2019-11-17 02:16
Atheism is the viewpoint that you *know* that a God or a higher power doesn't exist, and whilst someone who calls themselves an atheist usually means agnostic (they do not believe in a god, or a higher power, but they're still unsure about whether or not they truly exist due to a lack of evidence for either side or for whatever other reason), I think the distinction should still be made, so perhaps #100 also thinks the same way.

Dude that's your interpretation. Nobody describes atheism like that. Atheism is not saying that they KNOW God doesn't exist. Atheism basically says that there is no evidence of God, therefore it should not be considered that God exists unles some evidence comes out. That's the whole viewpoint. Open up a wiki page ffs.
2019-11-17 09:16

Go to youtube and enter "richard dawkins on agnosticism", go to wiki and read descriptions of atheism and agnosticism. There are ton of public speakers that explains atheism and a thought process behind it. No prominent atheist said any of what you said. You are just lying. No atheist agrees with your description. Can you show me anywhere where it says that: "Atheism is a religious worldview because it claims to know something fundamental about reality that hasn’t been or can’t really be scientifically proven. Like the other religous people, atheists operate out of a foundational faith or belief that shapes their perceiving, thinking, and living in the world.

every atheist is an agnostic, you cant prove a negative. im also agnostic towards bigfoot and gnomes and pots of gold at the end of a rainbow. you cant be 100% sure they wont be there. quantum mechanics and all that. its just not going to actually ever happen.
2019-11-18 15:09
Atheism is not the same as Agnosticism. That's what I'm arguing about. People have the wrong definition of atheism, it's the same with communism. People say all the time that russia/soviet and China is a communist state, and in fact that is an complete oxymoron.
2019-11-18 16:28
it is really hard to find an atheist who will say for sure there is no chance that some god like entity that exists in the multiverse outside our universe created our universe. im not even that sure. and im the most atheist person i know.
2019-11-19 09:20
Then I wouldn't define them/you as atheist, more like an agnostic way of thinking. Just because someone says they are something doesn't mean they are. That's why i gave you the example of communism.
2019-11-19 10:22

Yes Ofc, same thing with nazism, you can both be nazi and jew
2019-11-19 13:15
no, its 2 different things. atheist means you dont believe in god, agnostic means you are not sure whether god exists or not. you can be either one, or both at the same time, or neither.
2019-11-19 14:45
Okay, think about this way then, they *think* they know that God doesn't exist, as you said they can't actually know that God doesn't exist. Same way how theists can't know God exists either, so they'd be agnostic theists rather than gnostic theists, but they can still call themselves gnostic theists (or in most cases, just theists), because they are certain that a God exists. Or at least, that's how I've come to understand it.
2019-11-18 17:33
except theists will often literally say they are sure whereas atheists are much more likely to say that they cant be absolutely sure. you dont have to be absolutely sure to believe in something. theist or atheist isnt about how sure you are, its about which side you choose to believe. how sure or uncertrain you are, that decides whether you are gnostic or agnostic Gnosticism (from Ancient Greek, "having knowledge")
2019-11-19 09:22
Uhuh, so I'm curious as to how you'd misconstrue being 'sure' as being 'uncertain'. Are previously gnostic theists now agnostic because they're not as sure as gnostic atheists? Because I'm missing your point.
2019-11-19 10:52
if you dont believe that god exists or doesnt exist 100% sure, you are agnostic. i think most religious people are agnostic and dont take everything in their holy book literally. but there are some ppl who do literally believe it. ive never met an atheist who said that he was absolutely sure that we do not live in a clockwork universe set up by a creator, because that kind of thing is unknowable. its just that that option is not any more or less likely than every other theory about the universe. personally, i like the one with the turtles. there is no gradation in being absolutely sure. either you are sure or you are unsure.
2019-11-19 12:07
You seems to be disconcerted about what atheism is. You have mixed up the definitions of atheism and Agnosticism.

I see you like to argue about descriptions. I think these are the most valuable discussions you can have. Instead of finding out what meaning the word has you formulate definition in your head and then argue that people don't agree with your version of meaning. Well I go with the definition in wikipedia which is accurate to the meaning that it was ascribed to when people decided to make a word for that thing and what all prominent public speaking atheists describe what atheism is and its thought process and it is not even close to what you said atheism is according to you.
2019-11-17 12:24
So I guess that makes us two, since we both argue about the description. And I'm just gonna leave this copy paste from the Wikipedia you said you read: Atheism is, in the broadest sense, an absence of belief in the existence of deities.[1][2][3][4] Less broadly, atheism is a rejection of the belief that any deities exist.[5][6] In an even narrower sense, atheism is specifically the position that there are no deities.[1][2][7][8] Atheism is contrasted with theism,[9][10] which, in its most general form, is the belief that at least one deity exists
2019-11-18 16:19
>Atheism is a religious worldview because it claims to know something fundamental about reality that hasn’t been or can’t really be scientifically proven. wrong. atheism doesnt claim to know anything fundamental. atheism isnt a religion. or a worldview. atheism is simply a lack of a belief in a theistic religion. buddhists are atheists. people who dont believe in anything are atheists. atheism is not a belief. it is the opposite of a belief. atheism doesnt say "we know for sure there is no god". atheism is just saying "i dont believe in a god". whether a god actually exists or not, that is a question that can only be answered by people who are full of shit. now there are people who say there are different kinds of atheists, but they dont really get it. there is only one kind of atheist, the kind that doesnt practice a theistic religion or believe in a god. besides that, you can do whatever the fuck you want.

2019-11-16 22:15
LoL. It was, of course, a lie what you read about my religious convictions, a lie which is being systematically repeated. I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it.[21] (c) Einstein Einstein expressed his skepticism regarding the existence of an anthropomorphic God, such as the God of Abrahamic religions, often describing this view as "naïve"[3] and "childlike".[13] In a 1947 letter he stated, "It seems to me that the idea of a personal God is an anthropological concept which I cannot take seriously."[14] In a letter to Beatrice Frohlich on 17 December 1952, Einstein stated, "The idea of a personal God is quite alien to me and seems even naïve."[15] Educate urself next time when u want to write smthing
2019-11-16 22:27
anthropomorphic God doesn't mean he didn't believe in a God. He spends his last years to find a general formel for the Universum. That he failed was the proof for him that a God exist
2019-11-16 22:30
He didnt fail because of "god", but because he didnt like quantum mechanics. But nowadays quantum mechanics can explain a lot in our world and there is even a bridge to classical physics...

Believing in God is a solution for an unsolved question, (who created this universe?) , ok big bang, but who made the things that cause the bing bang ? , The more you answer the more you hear who question?? . No matter how smart are you but no one can solve those questions ... So believing in God is the best solution, especially if that God's instructions never make you a bad guy( doing what our instinct tells us)
2019-11-16 22:31
Who made the the thing that cause God. Bringing god dont give anything to ur question

the problem is our mind can't find a logic answer "how can something created when there was nothing before". I guess we could find an answer if we could quit our logic mindset for a moment.

God as a result is also a logic answer. A creature must have done that like we humans build a house. God is also a logic construct. One evidence religious are "logic" in themselfes (not with a look from outside)

Even though i am a believer, i sometimes think if it's true that there is a God who is uncreated that created this world and this universe , i sometimes think is there more Gods ruling another universes ?? It's tough to think about it ... I wanna also add that i am with a scientific background so i am not that dumb of a man , i am an electrical engineer so i really understand what's real logic all about.. and i am still believer since it make it easier to my mind when i think about this massive universe
2019-11-16 22:43
I can recommend you Carlos Castaneda books if you wanna get a little different view about the Universum. It is only another view and at least a few parts of the books are working for real. As example the "clarity" how you can get it. Or how you can remind about your dreams every time. He is also mentioned in the movie "exorcisms of Emily rose" also some of his "theories" are used in the movie "Donnie Darko" if you a person that has fun to think about existence etc it is interesting.

the answer is when you believe it it is a part of your reality, so it exists no matter what the truth is. Same as money. Money itself is worthless but you beleive it has a worth... +200IQ from me
2019-11-17 02:08
Have a look at this graph: imgur.com/7NzFKkV This shows that there is a very strong correlation between worldwide non-commercial space launches and the number of sociology degrees awarded in the USA. Does it mean that the more we award a sociology degree the more space launches we'll have? Hell no. This tells us about the fundamental concept. Correlation doesn't mean causation :)
2019-11-17 01:48
How do you know if you don't try?
2019-11-17 02:33
Yeah. Similarly, the correlation in the post doesn't mean anything.
2019-11-17 13:44
Yes this meta analysis doesnt show causation. People dont get dumber because they start to beleave in god. But there is correlation, which can be interpreted like: Already dumber people tend to beleave in god more often.
2019-11-17 16:48
I don't believe it interprets that either. It's your prejudice which is talking.
2019-11-17 21:50
and how will you explain / interpret this correlation?
2019-11-17 22:05
Just as the correlation picture I uploaded, a correlation doesn't mean anything. You cannot interpret anything based on a correlation. That's the fundamental principle of statistics
2019-11-17 22:06
Only because there are some correlations, which dont have any causation doesnt mean, that every correlation is useless. There are some very important correlations to which the causations are still unknown...
2019-11-17 22:22
So you can't just assume there's an unknown causation just because you feel there is. The only way to conclude something is to provide a constructive argument with proper proof. Correlations mean nothing.

yea but how do we exist if god doesnt exist? it all started with bigbang but how did bigbang start? we non religious athiests know that from nothing, nothing can be created, so without god we shouldnt exist right? but on the other hand how did god exist? ye dats right. with nothing how can god exist huh? yea so this is reality. bigbang didnt happen and god doesnt exist cus at the very start there was nothing and nothing can happen from nothing, alright n0thing? yea im talking to u n0thing gilbert. how was your day? good? me too. lets get back on topic now shall we n0thing? good. ok so heres a theory of the 'start'. well its not a theory cus its a fact. we all were transported from another world to be heros, sound familiar? yea thats right. this is a isekai world from all the mangas you been reading #weebsruletheworld
