So what does atheism stand for?
“The facts of atheism simply cannot be proven. How do we know that God does not exist? The fact is that atheism is a faith that drawn conclusions that go beyond the available evidence. “
(Alister McGrath, Scientist, Oxford)
It is basically almost impossible to claim and prove that something does NOT exist. In the case of God, this would mean that we have thoroughly examined the whole Universe and all reality outside the Universe in all conceivable ways for all conceivable forms of existence, and we have found nothing – and only then could we claim: GOD DOES NOT REALLY EXIST!
Therefore, most people of “non-theistic orientation” remain (even at the cost of ignoring the facts) in the position of “agnosticism”: “I am sorry, but I cannot comment on this question”…
So, why atheism?
“I had to reason not to want this world to make any sense, so I finally decided that it really didn’t have it … For me, and no doubt in most of my contemporaries, the philosophy of nonsense was essentially an instrument of liberation. The liberation we longed for was both a liberation from a certain political and economic system and a liberation from a certain system of morality. We had reservations about this morality because it hindered our sexual freedom. “
“Leaving aside some exceptions, rationalist atheism no longer has the dogmatic form it generally had in the 19th century. Few followers believe that humanity could live only according to the laws of reason and that reason could create the conditions for universal happiness and peace. Most of them are agnostic rather than atheistic. They do not claim that there is no supernatural order of God, but they are satisfied with the claim that they see no evidence of their existence anywhere.
Among the thinkers and writers who preach rationalist atheism, we chose biologist, Jean Rostand. In his very nice book, which bears the strange title “What do I believe?”, Rostand admits that his rationalist beliefs are also faith. “I admit that it would be difficult for me to logically justify some of my views, even though they are the ones I care about a lot.”
(Ignác Lepp, psychologist)
“I am an atheist emotionally. I have no facts to prove that God does not exist, but I suspect so strongly that I do not want to waste time. “
(Isaac Asimov, author of SCI-FI)
Thus, the fact is, as Rostand suggests, or Huxley puts it in his mouth, that atheism in practice is based mainly on EMOTIONAL REASONS:
I don’t want God to exist – it’s “important” for me not to exist.
Therefore, I state an APRIORIAL1 CLAIM: “God does not exist!”
From this predetermined point of view, I am only interpreting things to suit my statement: I choose “atheistic,” albeit less likely and much more groundbreaking “explanations” of the observed phenomena, and where this is not possible, or I ignore the facts, or I reject and deny, or accuse those who testify to something that I do not think (must not!) exist, of psychological deviation and hallucinations2, deception and deception, etc.…
For example: “Unlike Voltaire, who considered Christianity to be false but influential, Nietzsche has no interest in whether Christianity is true or false. He is neither a rationalist nor an indirect student of encyclopedists. The truth, in my eyes, only makes as much sense as it is effective. He does not hesitate to lie to deception and pretense if these are more effective than the truth. “What do we care about God today, faith in God? Today, God is nothing but a faded word, not even a concept. ” (Ignác Lepp, psychologist, former atheist)
In other words, the average atheist in his faith usually fails common sense. The logical and rational practices he routinely uses in other areas of life fall in his faith — and what he would find absurd in another realm seem “rational” to him in his faith because he firmly believes that the very idea of God is and must be a priori irrational and therefore anything contrary to God’s existence and religion is so a priori “rational” and done…
AN ATHEIST IS NOT AN AGNOSTIC, BUT IS AN ATHEIST – that is, his statement is, “GOD DOES NOT EXIST.” Absolutely, unquestionably, never, nowhere, and in no way. Not the statement “I have not met God and I have no reason to think it exists,” as an agnostic would say, but a positive statement: “NO GOD ABSOLUTELY EXISTS!”
We all agree on that.- But how does our atheist know? Is it somehow proven, confirmed? Of course not, as one of them says: “Only an idiot requires proof of the absolute unconditional non-existence of something” – because it is inherently impossible.
– So the atheist ONLY BELIEVES that God does not exist. So, what could he believe in something like that? Well, for example, based on this: “No one has ever met God anywhere.” Or, “God has never manifested himself anywhere and in any objective way.” That would be a pretty solid foundation if it were true.
Although, strictly speaking, even this is not enough for the absolute statement “NO GOD HAS NEVER ANYWHERE, HAS NOT EXISTED OR WILL EXIST.” Even on such a basis, this statement would be far beyond what might result from such an experience of the absence of God.
Not to mention the practical impossibility of proving and empirically substantiating the statements “No one has ever met God anywhere” and “God has never appeared anywhere and in any objective way”, which in turn are only a prerequisite that one can believe so much – you see, it’s enchanted. Circle!
But let’s face it, let’s move beyond such “pettiness” and, for now, pretend that this problem is not here, and we could really substantiate both of these claims and take them as proven facts …
– But look! A huge bus of people – demonstrably normal, healthy, mentally balanced, without any disruption – who, independently of themselves and regardless of the time in which they live, regardless of culture, race, … – have essentially the same experience of God. And then, of course, there are other, objective manifestations, in many cases properly documented by the scientists and experts who accompany them.
– And what does an ordinary atheist do? For the most part, he declares ALL cases of objective manifestations of God to be FRAUD, without dealing with them, to examine them, … And he declares all those people who have the experience of God to be mentally ill – again, without knowing them. Investigated and rationally and, in fact, substantiated his claim. Just like that, en block, flat rate, and flat. Interesting, isn’t it? Wondering why?
An atheist BELIEVES claims that “God does not exist” is absolute truth superior to everything else and a dot.- Nevertheless, because the ATHEIST BELIEVES IN THE DOG OF THE EXISTENCE OF GOD! And so he strongly BELIEVES that any fact, any experience that is contrary to this dogma, to this basic belief of every atheist, must necessarily be incorrect, fabricated, sick, or something similar because he BELIEVES that nothing he BELIEVES about, that it cannot exist, nor does it really exist.
There is no inherent FACT arising from the non-existence of God (and the non-existence of anything) – and, conversely, facts suggesting (I use this very subtle word intentionally) the opposite of an atheist usually flatly, without knowing and examining them, categorizing them as fiction “… so on what basis does our atheist actually believe in the dogma” GOD DOES NOT EXIST “?- And what does our atheist believe in? Based on human experience? No, it is the opposite, after all, and because of it, the pen marked a toll of at least a few tens of millions of people as insane. So, based on the facts?
– Well because she … trusts her … Nothing more. He believes. Dot. He trusts her and rejects anything that would question her in any way because it is his faith, his religion, his everything. Or maybe it’s similar to his fellow Aldous Huxley: “I had reasoned not to want this world to make any sense, so I finally decided it really didn’t have it … For me, and no doubt in most of my contemporaries. “The philosophy of nonsense was essentially an instrument of liberation. The liberation we longed for was both liberations from a certain political and economic system and liberation from a certain system of morality. We had reservations about this morality because it hindered our sexual freedom.” Who knows.
– therefore, an ordinary atheist usually creates (and with his repeated statements confirms before himself) his own mythical vision of the world and mythical vision of history, in which there is a mythical dark medieval and a mythical RKC, which is a brake and obstacle to all good and mythical demigods. Atheists, who, on the other hand, are made benefactors and angels of humanity and above all, watch the supreme deity, “Mother Nature” (“Blind Watch,” but it no longer sounds so ‘divine’), holding the omnipotent scepter of evolution in their hands … etc. And nothing, no reality, no experience, no scientists, no experts, no historians, no one will ever shake this mythical world. Mythology as embroidered … And, of course, a bunch of heretics who do not profess this one and true atheistic faith and its myths that accompany it — they are all lunatics, lunatics, and irrationally liberated idiots — who, if they are no longer to be burned, must at least to silence, to push away, out of public life, somewhere away, to the edge, beyond the edge, somewhere in the darkness and into the underground, where, dark ones one, finally rightfully belong …
