      Why is atheism becoming more common? On a side note my coworker unironically wore this shirt today

      Christians are becoming increasingly hypocritical / disconnected from the zeitgeist.

      All the Christians I know around my age (early 20s) only go to Church twice a year (Christmas & Easter) at most and still feel the need to post Bible verses on their tinder / instragram / facebook ad nauseam. It’s annoying enough to drive a lot of otherwise agnostics to a sense of reluctant atheism

      The none meme answer is that religions are unable to answer the questions people are asking

        Wouldn’t the natural response then be to lean toward agnosticism? Why militant atheism?

          Because the religious are also terrible to be near, which forms a very bad impression.
          Very holier-than-thou, often hypocrites.

          Agnosticism, if there was an honest count, would dwarf either the religious or militant atheists. There’s a bigger bias at this point against people who don’t claim to know, because the religious say they’re going to hell and are demented bad people who would literally murder baybees, and the Militant Atheists say they’re big dum dum poo poo heads to pretend not to know there’s no god. Silent majority.

          Agnostics are cowards dominated by religious nuts. If you’ve found your way out of your birth religion you can tell that none of the other ones are right either. Agnostics fear the enormous number of religious zealots in the world so they avoid hinting to them that they think their God is a hoax. Sensible given how upset that makes some people but definitely not courageous. Lying about your beliefs feels bad, atheists are agnostics that have stopped lying.

        What questions are people asking that you think atheism is answering?

        Honestly this. For thousands of years while had little understanding of how the natural world works, and so they created religious explanations for it. Now we have the scientific knowledge to answer so many of those questions and it is at odds with the world’s religions preach. Some religious people try to reconcile their scriptures with science, but it rarely holds up under real scrutiny. It’s not really hard to understand why religion is on the decline.

      Because God is on the side of the communists and the anti-Imperialists and the decadent liberals of the West need to justify their Randian and Harrisite imperialism and degeneracy. God is real, Christ is King and America is Sodom and Gomorrah. China is the fastest Christianizing nation on the earth and they will bring the fight to the American synagogue of Satan, critically.

      Read Hegel.

      It isn’t, though. Atheism was a fad that died in 2012. If you mean agnostic, then that’s just people not giving a shit either way, which is a state of mind on the rise in a multitude of fields.

      Materialism makes it difficult to understand what religions are talking about. Comfort makes it difficult to not get distracted from it. We live in the most materialistic and comfortable/luxurious era on Earth.

      What’s funny is that the same type of people who would wear this shirt or support its aims probably are Japanophiles and or obsessed with yoga.

        That lengthy essay about how New Atheism basically committed suicide once normies took over the internet and the age of debating died was a genuinely fascinating read. I’d love to have had that fleshed out further and turned into a book.

      I think McLuhan has the best take on this, he claims television and technology has made everyone tribal, and before that, christianity has been woke af as a scholastic phenomena. Society is not visually oriented now but rather acoustically, individuals with goals have gone by the wayside and the need for a corporate identity has briskly taken over the subjects of modern society.

      One of the thing about religion is that
      many religious people not only ignore their rites (like going to chirch and actually following their laws), but they are also having their own shizo versions of the bible. I swear, every time I argue about religion for more then a few minutes with one guy, he starts to unravel his own distorted headcanon. Most have only a very shallow understanding of their own religion, so when they face a question that they are not ready for, they start to throw random bullshit at you. I feel like there are hundreds of different bibles which people read and they automatically thing that they are talking about the same thing.
      You actually start to understand that middle age priests disallowing peasants to read the bible by themselves was very much justified.

      Religion existed to explain the unknown and provide moral guidance. Now science has answered many of those questions and religiousscrotes have shown how immoral they can be.

      Is it? I remember the Dawkins crowd was really loud back in the 2000s, now I barely see them outside of r/atheism.

        Most posters on LULZ are from North America and Europe where Christianity and religion have seen an unprecedented decline in the past few generations, accelerating to its highest speed ever long every year consecutive year.
        People belonging to a church are now a minority now in America. It’s not hard to see religion losing a massive amount of influence on culture in those regions in the past generation alone,

        I think they’re talking about that.

        New Atheism as movement fizzled out practically completely, but casual atheism / agnosticism is has became much more common. The booming of atheism doesn’t manifest itself as people who read Dawkins or actively campaign that there’s no god, it manifests itself as a reality where less and less people even think about religions in the first place.

      people look down at philosophy now and see it as merely political and as a tool. The same with metaphysics that have been destroyed by a positivist elite (intelectual)
