There was a thread in the politics forum saying 'certaintly' athesists have nothing in common with true Christians. My response is below. I would ask that people responding do so as those of as that are athesists when we think of your good qualities of being 'Christian'. Please understand that the concept of being Christian is a good one to us. But I will tell you truely and honestly. Why do you have a bad taste and reputation for many of us? It is because of many people who call themselves 'Christian' their actions and who they have become are filled with hate. I don't mean that to be hurtful, I mean to to be helpful.
My original post below.
Let me tell everyone why athesists are actually the Truest Christians on the planet.
Morality does not and never has come from religions. All the best religions in the world have the 'golden rule'. But guess what? They never EVER, none of them created the golden rule. You know who created the golden rule? We did, our humanity did, ourselves did, our biology did. It is universal.
Most every human being is born with empathy and caring. Why? We are social animals. That is how we survived. We survived by caring. We are not the fastest, strongest, heartiest is or anything else physically. We are actually wimps. I know for a fact my cats can kick my behind anytime they wanted. Get us out on the savanah without coperation? See you later. Have a nice time being a lion steak.
Atheists are some of the kindest, gentlest, most wonderful human beings on the planet. We are nice and giving because it makes us happy. I was never a 'mean' kid. In fact quite the opposite. I was super sensitive and always stood up to bullies. I could never take anyone crying and alway loved to make people happy and laugh. Always. To this day the great inanate joy of helping others has never left me.
And I act what I feel are the actions of a wonderful human being, any everyone who knows me would agree with no expectations of rewards or that I get a 'ticket' to ever lasting life. But because it is WHO I AM. And I have zero of the baggae of not liking other religions, of this is the true religion, of hell, of gays are bad, or any of the other amazingly bad and immoral things that organized religions have brought into the world.
Atheists are acutally the truest and purest 'Christians' around. We in our hearts and mind are the ones carrying out the teachings of Jesus, a great man and humanitarian, into the world.
