Right and Wrong:The challenge
I have met many atheists of this time but I always wonder if the leaders of atheism were able to come together and use their intellects to devise and implement solutions to our world problems perhaps things would be different. I asked some of my atheist friends while I was in Brazil what they thought and they told me "Live for the now man, don't worry about that!" We then proceeded to chug alcohol because of the conceptual saying, "When in Rome."

So I wanted to ask you guys if atheism with its powerful leaders like John Oswald, Tony Parker, Brad Pitt, Chris Jericho, Seth MacFarlane, Johnny Quest, etc. Could perhaps bring about momentous change through our atheist ideals?

I'd say pick your friends with a bit more care.
And WTAF ? They've all done their bit, in their own way. Belief is on the wane in the educated world.

There are no "atheist ideals" for the 10,000,000th time.
Leave the cruise-directing to someone else.
K ?

Hello!

Welcome to the forums.

Wait... 'Atheist leaders'?

Okay.. maybe English is not your first language?

There are people who are prominent and identify as Atheist.....

Also, a lot of such people suggest many things which they think might make the world a better place (Heck, even folks on the boards here discuss such things... )

But.. other wise, your post isn't making a lot of sense.

Much cheers to all.

Let your life be in the here and now, but let the actions you take be for the future.

I will just leave this here for you to chew on for a while.

Well, religion is a world problem, have you seen the news lately?
Right now, one of the biggest things atheism does is push back against religion's invasion into nearly every aspect of our lives. So there's that.

RE: Right and Wrong:The challenge
ATHEISM HAS NO LEADERSHIP, NO IDEALS, NO RULES,

its just a lack of belief in one thing, the existence of a deity or deities and nothing more

RE: Right and Wrong:The challenge
Yeah, atheists are like cats. You can try to herd us if you want.

Personally, I can't think of a person or organisation that I would consider as an authority or leader with regards to lacking belief in gods.

I lack the belief, why do I need a leader in this regard?

who is going to be the leader for all those who lack belief in fairies?
What about the leader for all those who lack a belief in unicorns?

So many leaders, but so little time for me to look up to them all.

RE: Right and Wrong:The challenge
I doubt very much so that you're genuine at all.

To your "point".

No those people wouldn't be able to enact much in the way of positive change. That's not something they are equipped to do.

They are also not our leaders. We have no leaders. That's rubbish. The only common thought you can attribute to atheists as a whole is a lack of belief in at least one god. That says nothing about policies, or anything else.

This is why it's hard to get us all together. We rarely agree on much. It's like herding cats.

It would be easier to gather us by talking about policy than by our belief in gods. We only collect here for a sense of community and support that we often cannot find at home.

I also think you didn't mean when in rome but carpe diem. Which means seize the day. But who knows what the fuck you're on about honestly.

Going by that list of atheist "leaders", I'm gonna say you're a fucking troll.

I don't know why don't you watch a Jonny Quest cartoon and find out:
