Are Atheists As Intolerant as the Theists They Decry?

thepositiveatheist:

Intolerant Atheists

I’ve heard the claim, “atheists are just as intolerant as the theists they decry”, from theists and atheists alike.

Does anyone truly believe this despite the fact that the slightest applied skepticism and reflection is all that’s required to see through it?

Of course…

How do you describe secular humanism?

A question for all of my followers: When you identify your beliefs, how do you label secular humanism? Do you describe it as a philosophy, a school of thought, a lifestyle, a religion, a faith? Why do you use the terminology you do?

There are no wrong answers, and will be no judgment. I’m curious!

As children we’re taught to do unto others as we would want done unto ourselves. That Golden Rule is even more important to me, as an atheist. We’re all in this together, with only ourselves to hold onto, so when you have the opportunity to perform an act of compassion for another human being — do it. You’ll never look back and regret being kind, when your life is almost over.

There’s no evidence for any of these:

travors:

1. A tap dancing monkey who lives on the moon.
2. A magical sea turkey who yodels the Smiths back catalogue.
3. God.

So why treat the last one different to the first two?

"I am not an atheist by choice, I am a seeker of truth. Being an atheist is just a side effect of that endeavor."

”..The God Graveyard, old gods that have been worshiped throughout our history but are no longer prayed to, how many more will be thrown into the wind?…”

That’s really creative and ingenious 

If you look really hard in the second picture there’s Tom Hiddleston as Loki

This is beautiful
