The Greater Insult, DarkMatter 2525
"Even though I’m a nonbeliever, would I be scared to learn that God really does exist? No. Far from it. The belief that God desires praise, worship, and violent retribution, comes from a lack of understanding about what it’s like to be an enlightened being. It is ignorance projecting ignorance.

The theist view of God is actually far more insulting than the atheist view. It is commonly held that the atheist is the offensive one, that the nonbeliever must walk on eggshells, and be considerate of the beliefs of others. That seems backwards to me. What if there is a god and that god is offended at the thought of people believing he desires worship and praise, demands it even, for eternity - like some petty narcissist? What if that god is disappointed in those who expected him to torture their enemies? What if the believers and the nonbelievers are made to face their creator, and it is the believers who must answer for their offensive beliefs? Even if that’s the case, I don’t think any of us would have anything to worry about, believer and nonbeliever alike, because any mind capable of creating this universe would be enlightened to the point of being beyond such petty concerns."

For me Atheism is not just about rejection of god or gods etc
I have no interest in aspiring to please or worship a God that terrifies and threatens and allows evil to go unpunished and good unrewarded...even if he did exist.... I would want no part of his sadistic and twisted game.

If there actually was a 'creator' god, & if it was the Abrahamic version of such, no matter what the consequences I would have serious questions to ask it. If it proved its divinity, I still would not willingly worship the god of the old testament! That god is an abomination!

This video actually made me feel bad for the Christian and the Muslim. It just goes to show you that we are inextricably linked to cause and effect and that there is no such thing as free will.

Kinda what I have thought all along... If he WERE real, surely he would understand why I have the thought process I have in rationalizing his existence...& grade me on a curve...lol...
