Why Atheism is Rising

http://youtube.com/watch?v=9pPlFrmkXlE

Our preachers like the above driving people away from religion.

How do religious people explain the actions of the so called followers of God.

P.S. If you are athiest this clip will be beyond funny.

The ATP deserves a better class of player, and I'm gonna give it to 'em - Djoker

Re: Why Athiesm is Rising

Sigh

I really hate to see my religion being spoken of in this manner

Unfortunately, these are the types of people that many think are par for the course of Christianity

Do you think this guy is for real, man? Like he has a show on cable or something and can't even afford a fake glue in tooth or something? Please.

Got me. In the comments section someone states he was on public television in LA.

Heres another example which looks 100% real:

Same questions and comments still apply.

Re: Why Athiesm is Rising

Don't know about the first clip (didn't watch the whole thing actually) but the second one looks real. I've seen a lot of people like that.

I don't really think that preachers drive people into Atheism. It drives them away from religion, sure, I know that because I have experienced that first hand. The priest at my church has done a lot of different things then the previous priests and has effectively drove people away from the church. There are plenty of people I know that aren't religious but believe in God. From my perspective, that's all that really matters because religion has become too technical.

This is all just my opinion of course and I'm not really looking for a debate because I'm too tired and will too busy the next few days.

LOL, Nah I am not into Jedism.

I believe there is a GOD, but that most organized religions are corrupt and just exist to make money.

Re: Why Athiesm is Rising

Organized religion does more harm than it does good. It's always been that way and it'll continue down the same path until man stops distorting the words of "God" for their own gain.

Re: Why Athiesm is Rising

The title of your thread is not related to what you are talking about. What you meant to say was that people are losing interest in the Church. True atheists and potential atheists are not swayed by some silly video. They arrive at the truth by simply applying their own powers of reason.

Unless, of course, athiesm is a new cult of which I am not aware.

There are no words of ''God.'' All the so-called ''holy'' books were written by mere humans.

Of course, I doubt God came down and spoke to anyone. The books were written to exploit people out of their cash.

Re: Why Athiesm is Rising

You mean atheism.

And, well, no surprise. Look at the options we have for religions in the world.

Well the major religions appear to be warlike in every way.

Re: Why Atheism is Rising

I don't know what [the clip of the guy] he was saying!? You know...biatch... that's all I could make out, I had to turn it off after 30 seconds!

The woman was scary. Very cult-like. Her excited hyperactive rant reminded me of Marie from Everybody Loves Raymond, for some reason...
