Briefly: WHY ARE ATHEISTS CONCERNED ABOUT RELIGION?
It is very often wondered why atheists even think about religion. Why do atheists care about religion if they aren't religious, why can't they just leave the religious alone and let people believe what they want? Continue....

Next best thing after "Why are you so angry at God?".

Then no matter what you say, they fill you up with No True Scotsmans and you know the conversation is over.

RE: Briefly: WHY ARE ATHEISTS CONCERNED ABOUT RELIGION?
Why do people always mix religion and atheism? They are not mutually exclusive.
There are plenty of religious atheists, Buddhists for example or Jainists.

Atheism is about a lack of believe in a god
Religion is a set of rules about how to worship something supernatural.

Bosnia, Belgrade, Bangladesh, Botswana, Beijing, Beirut, Basra, Baghdad

Shall I continue with the letter C ?

Religious fighting and indoctrination perpetuates ignorance and glorifies the deaths of its followers.
Like the Spanish Flu of 1918, if we don't stop the spread of this virus of delusion it will stay with us and continue to have violent outbreaks all over the world.

Insanity - doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results

RE: Briefly: WHY ARE ATHEISTS CONCERNED ABOUT RELIGION?
Here in America one of the biggest concerns is how religion is getting woven into laws. Religion is being used to keep basic human rights from people. Many atheists also have to deal with hiding their atheism to keep their jobs and to not be ostracized in their communities, schools, and families. In ways, big and small, religion is force fed to those who aren't religious. There is also the issue of the vast amount of taxes that aren't collected due to religious institutions being exempt.

Others have mentioned wars and other atrocities that are religion based.

We need to be concerned.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

RE: Briefly: WHY ARE ATHEISTS CONCERNED ABOUT RELIGION?
A better question is why are religious people concerned about Atheist? I mean think about it. Let's say I am one of those Kent Hovind creationist and I make an atheist not accept evolution, cosmology, or science in general anymore and make him think there might be some god. However after a week he comes back as a Muslim because he met on of those Zakir Naik creationist and he was more convincing. If anything religious people should take down rival religions first then turn in our direction for debunking.

WHY ARE ATHEISTS CONCERNED ABOUT RELIGION?

Your thoughts?

Because idiots brainwash children into denying scientific facts and those children grow up to do the same to their own. Before you know it you have the most advanced nation in the world filled with scientifically illiterate idiots that thinks you can put two of every animal on the planet in a boat.
Beyond that I personally find religion a very interesting topic. Kinda like how my wife finds serial killers interesting.
