WHY DO ATHEISTS (like me) HATE RELIGION ?

The answer is simple: Atheists hate religion because religion is at the root of all inflicted injustices still ongoing, since the beginning of time. It is this very virus that has caused countless suffering and annihilation, spreading like a vicious cancer in its wake, infesting homo sapiens left and right into lethargic torpid zombies, feeding upon itself till exuberance of its toxicity has infiltrated and corrupted the very last pinnacles of homo sapientian civilizations.

But a thunderous shot across the bow has been heard in recent times. Religion has finally, after hellish millennia, been stunned, and nail after nail, with victorious force, have steadily been driven down into the coffin of this absolute ominous and abominous pest, with sustainable lasting results. Smiley

There is some [common] sense left in this cancerous environment, a antidote if you will. It is called Atheism. And nowadays Atheists have indeed grown into a formidable force of retribution, to eviscerate this cancerous plague called religion. Long live Atheism!



Are religious people different than non-religious people? Yes and no.

No. They all breathe air. They all drink water. They all eat food. They all think and learn.

Yes. Religious people work diligently at things. Non-religious people don't.

It's in the definition of the word religion. See #6 and other parts of religion in the dictionary:
something one believes in and follows devotedly; a point or matter of ethics or conscience: to make a religion of fighting prejudice.

If an atheist hates religion, he isn't really hating religion. Why not? Hate is a very strong word. Hate is a point or matter of ethics or conscience, just like the dictionary definition says. This means that an atheist doesn't hate religion. If he did, he would stop hating. As it is, he is doing the exact thing that he purportedly is hating... if he hates religion.

If a so-called atheist hates religion, what he really hates is some form of violence, something that happened to him in early life, the fact that some people have more wealth than he does, perhaps an illness that he has, his own messed-up life in general, or any of a multitude of things that go on in life. But the fact that he hates, shows that he has a religion, because hate is tied to something that one believes in and follows devotedly... a revulsion towards something.

To suggest that an atheist hates religion is to suggest that an atheist hates himself. While this may be true in some cases, it generally isn't. More explanation is necessary. The difference lies in organized religion.

For example. There might be many atheists who hate the Jewish religion. The Jewish religion has a place of worship. They have formal scrolls and books of doctrine. They often know each other and practice their religious activities together. But the atheist hate religion doesn't do these things very often... although they are getting together more and more to do something with their hate religion these days. Their meeting place might be a Denny's restaurant conference room. They get to know each other. The actually write up plans how they are going to demonstrate against the Jews, etc.

The atheist hate religion is becoming more formal all the time.

Cool

Get it right:

Religion = believing non sense when it's not scientifically proven to be true or even close to it.

Get it right:

Science is religion because it has as much nonsense in it as any other religion. This is evident by the fact that the religions wouldn't exist if they had nonsense in them.

Cool

''This is evident by the fact that the religions wouldn't exist if they had nonsense in them.'' Again with the logic of a 5 year old, so everything that exists has to make sense, there is nothing that has nonsense and exists right?

Cool

Scientific theories confirmed by observations or physical evidence are pretty solid. As close to a fact as you can get.

You are probably thinking about scientific theories that have not been confirmed by observations or physical evidence yet and you are calling them nonsense.

Usually these unconfirmed theories are based on a little more than sentences someone wrote in a book.

Religions on the other hand have some wild, supernatural claims, and flat out false information (6000 year old Earth, virgin conception, winged horses and 6 day creation comes to mind)

Then there is Big Bang, of course. Using a bare minimum of mathematical theorems, BB attempts to show how the universe came about from a big explosion. Yet it depends on other theory and ideas to explain how the complexity that we have in the universe could ever come about through an explosion.

Marvel Avengers movies do a better job of explaining the universe than BB.

What has been proven is that the early universe was much, much smaller, and that the universe is expanding.  The further away from Earth the object is the faster it moves away.  The pulling (Dark Energy) and pushing (Dark Matter and ordinary matter) tug of war is going on everywhere in the universe.  In our backyard, the Dark Matter is winning so we are ok for now.

You want to hear and see the remnant signals of the Big Bang, turn on your TV and switch to an OTA channel with no programming.  

What has not been observed is the actual beginning of the Big Bang.

There are some theories that say that our universe came about from a singularity of a black hole somewhere in another universe.  But they have not been confirmed by evidence.

Except that nobody has proven that BB existed. But if they somehow do, all that they will be proving is that BB is God, and that it was God that created everything.

Back to religion again.

Yeah, you are mentally challenged. You keep yelling your classic ''Except that nobody has proven that BB existed'' Except we have scientific evidence for it unlike god, yet you believe god exists and you don't believe the big bang happened, your mind doesn't work.

BTW, if science finds out that God/alien civilization created our universe, maybe we'll be able to figure out how to communicate with it, and we'll learn more about it.

I for one would have so many questions...

The answer to the question you didn't ask is... spending eternity doing the same thing is boring... life is not boring because, surprise!

If you have other questions for me, just ask   Wink

I don't have or own a TV.
I don't know what CMB you are referring to.

Science already found that God created the universe. How? By finding out how complex the universe is in every way. Whatever created the universe is God, just to be able to create such complexity. See the Scientific proof that God exists? thread - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=737322.0.

''By finding out how complex the universe is in every way. '' When was this quantified? Is there a calculation of how complex the universe is? Can you tell us how complex the universe is then? From a scale of 0-100?

Do you think that scientists are not trying to keep a person alive in top health for 500 years or longer? Don't you realize that it is the complexity of nature and life that is thwarting them? Even the best that is offered by scientists and researchers in this single area, is still beat by nature in a few areas of the world... like the Hunza's, or the people of Vilcabamba, Ecuador, who drink of ancient, melting glacial mineral waters.

Nature has us beat for complexity all over the place.

No, you said '' By finding out how complex the universe is in every way.'' And I asked you, how complex is it? Is there a number to the complexity of it or are you just pulling it out of your ass? What are you defining complexity as?

 Neil Johnson states that "even among scientists, there is no unique definition of complexity – and the scientific notion has traditionally been conveyed using particular examples..." Ultimately Johnson adopts the definition of "complexity science" as "the study of the phenomena which emerge from a collection of interacting objects"

You and everyone else can continue to ask all kinds of questions about all kinds of things. So what?

The point that Neil Johnson is making is that we are so inadequate regarding understanding complexity, that there is no clear definition.

The point that complexity shows is that only something like God can make such complexity. We have no evidence of anything else that can do it. Do you want a description of God? You will get some of it in the resurrection... or by reading the bible.

''The point that complexity shows is that only something like God can make such complexity'' Yeah? How does it show that exactly? ''We have no evidence of anything else that can do it'' How so? We have evidence that the big bang did it, we have no evidence that a god did it.

BTW, if science finds out that God/alien civilization created our universe, maybe we'll be able to figure out how to communicate with it, and we'll learn more about it.

I for one would have so many questions...

The answer to the question you didn't ask is... spending eternity doing the same thing is boring... life is not boring because, surprise!

If you have other questions for me, just ask   Wink

Why did you run the simulation for so long?

How long is too long?  What percentage of eternity is 15 billion years?

How did you express singularities in the computer executable statements?

I don't need to because you can't investigate it... similar to a video game, your video card only needs to process the objects which you can see... if you can't see it, it doesn't need any processing power

How did you calculate 0/0 or 0^infinity?

0/0=(0^1)/(0^1)=0^(1-1)=0^0=1
0/0=(0^infinity)/(0^infinity)=0^(infinity-infinity)?=0

Yes, exactly like that.  Anything divided by itself = 1, and 0 divided or multiplied by anything is still 0

What happens to space time at dimensions smaller than Planck's lengths and Planck's time?

Not much these days, but those dimensions are not constants, space-time is expanding (or shrinking, depending on your perspective)

How does space time look like in your world?

Time is an illusion, there is only now... now is a gift, we even call it "the present"

Are you a simulation as well?  Who runs your simulation?  Are they themselves a simulation? Who is at the top of the simulation tree?

Of course... just like humans are working towards creating their own simulations, which will in turn create new simulations that will create newer simulations, ad infinitum

Thank you Moloch the Merciful.  Moloch Akbar!  Moloch Akbar! Moloch Akbar!

PS. And that is how new religions are born.  People have questions and others have answers. LOL

Ask a silly question, get a silly answer Wink

I do somewhat subscribe to the simulation theory... Like Elon Musk, I find it too plausible to disbelieve.  The Hindus and Buddhists have been saying similar for thousands of years, only they call it reincarnation

I find the idea of reincarnation more plausible than the idea that god created everyone with less than 100 years to find the correct religion or they spend eternity being tortured by an omnibenevolent god... the latter being a contradiction of an omnibenevolent god torturing souls for eternity, simply for making the wrong choice with limited/bad/contradictory information

It's really hard to say what's actually plausible and what is not, we lack a lot of information, perhaps right now something that seems really crazy and not plausible it is in fact what happened.

...Religious people work diligently at things. Non-religious people don't.

Making a blatantly false generalization like that, once again, clearly demonstrates the pious fool that you are.

Only if the universe can be reduced to computable, close-form functions.  How do you do that with infinities that are all around us since the Big Bang?

Math has been shown to deal with infinities once you achieve a deep enough fundamental understanding. Zeno's paradox held for over 2000 years and then we figured out calculus.

Ok, try the same with the divergent series.

Clearly that would be more challenging.

That said I am skeptical that divergent series actually exist in reality. Easy to set up on paper but they break down when applied to the real world. Here is a clarifying example.

Quote from: fcas80
Consider a handball court inside a cube, where every wall including the ceiling is fair game to bounce a ball off of.

Bounce a ball at an angle off one wall, so that it bounces off numerous different walls.

In an ideal world of no friction, etc., the ball will bounce forever and never converge anywhere. This is a divergent series.  

In the real world, eventually the ball will converge and come to rest somewhere.

The divergent series in this example is simply an inaccurate modeling of reality. It fails to account for friction.

1+1+1+1+... to infinity probably fails in a similar way because in a finite universe you eventually run out of subatomic particles or whatever it is that you are counting. The model is too simple.
 
Same story with the "infinity" of a black hole. We have no concrete knowledge of what happens inside the event horizon of a black hole. Any comments on the physical dimensions of the mass inside the event horizon are pure speculation.

Physics professor Christopher S. Baird covers this well
http://wtamu.edu/~cbaird/sq/mobile/2013/09/13/does-every-black-hole-contain-a-singularity/
Quote from: Dr. Baird
In the real universe, no black holes contain singularities. In general, singularities are the non-physical mathematical result of a flawed physical theory. When scientists talk about black hole singularities, they are talking about the errors that appear in our current theories and not about objects that actually exist. When scientists and non-scientists talk about singularities as if they really exist, they are simply displaying their ignorance.

Saying that infinities do not exist is also the sign of ignorance where our observations indicate what our universe started at a singularity. The scientific community is pretty much in an agreement on this point (pun intended).

As for Black Holes, next year they will be releasing the 25-year observational study of the behavior of the black hole in the center of our Milky Way.  Exciting stuff coming up ...  BTW, general relativity predicts a singularity at the center of the black hole.

General relativity does indeed predict a singularly at the center of a black hole. General relativity works well to describe the universe but that does not mean it can be extrapolated into quantum scales.

Newton's laws of motion work wonderfully for what they do also but push them to the edges and they break allowing for things like travel faster then the speed of light.

The appearance of a black hole singularity in general relativity is a powerful indication that general relativity is probably inaccurate at very small sizes. We already know this which is why we need quantum field theory to describe objects of small sizes.

However, quantum field theory does not include gravitational effects, which is the main feature of a black hole. This lack means that we really have no idea what is going on in a black hole until scientists can successfully create a new theory that accurately describes small sizes and strong gravitational effects at the same time.

As for the Big Bang I agree that something very unique occurred at that moment. The instantaneous creation of everything from nothing. A fascinating area of study.

Another question you can ask yourself is the universe finite or infinite.  I mean the part of the universe past the observable horizon which changes over time as stuff moves away from us.  Observations indicate an infinite and flat universe.

Observations indicate a flat universe that is probably finite.

Unless inflation went on for a truly infinite amount of time, the Universe must be finite in extent.

That is a problem with infinities.  It is hard to imagine them.  "infinity + something = infinity"

Some things are not intuitive.  When Feynman first presented his diagrams, Dirac and Bohr told him he is an idiot and walked out of the room.

This universe is amazing, we all should be glad the supernovae created atoms in our bodies.



We should indeed be grateful for the stars and supernovae that allowed heavy elements to form and spread.

We should also be grateful for the light called into existence at the beginning of time that eventually made those supernova possible.




https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chronology_of_the_universe
Quote
The early universe, from the Quark epoch to the Photon epoch, or the first 380,000 years of cosmic time, when the familiar forces and elementary particles have emerged but the universe remains in the state of a plasma, followed by the "Dark Ages", from 380,000 years to about 150 million years during which the universe was transparent but no large-scale structures had yet formed

Before decoupling occurred, most of the photons in the universe were interacting with electrons and protons in the photon–baryon fluid. The universe was opaque or "foggy" as a result. There was light but not light we can now observe through telescopes. The baryonic matter in the universe consisted of ionized plasma, and it only became neutral when it gained free electrons during "recombination", thereby releasing the photons creating the CMB. When the photons were released (or decoupled) the universe became transparent.

And most importantly we should be grateful for the infinite creator who willed it all into existence and sustains it still.

Genesis 1-3:
Quote
3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.
