Why have them when you can worship your god in your home where you live? Plus it is a constant reminder to me that there are tons of stupid religious nuts in this world, that god is being worshipped non-stop, and that Satan is being hated on non-stop.

I'm Pagan and I don't even identify a Christian Satan. But really, religious freedom is for everyone including Satanists. Religious tolerance. Get used to it. Christianity sucks, a lot of religions suck, that's just my opinion.
Some people identify god as the universe. Some as nature, others are polytheistic. A church is just a building to me that I can respect and tolerate. I get Christianity shoved down my throat all the time.
Does any christian ever stop and think, "hey this person probably doesn't want to be converted and told that they are wrong so I won't press my religion on them and let it be." Seriously?!? You'd probably have less satanist that way because it TURNS PEOPLE AWAY FROM ACCEPTING CHRISTIANITY AS THEIR OWN.
And as far as gay, bisexual, whatever, love is love. What god (other than an angry god) wouldn't allow love to simply be? Maybe a god that allowed evil into the world, idk. I'm not a religion expert or a saint know it all.
And great job on the sticker I love the free expression.

Wow, you could come up with one guy who was driven to violence by something other than religion. I'm impressed. :roll: That said, he was still motivated by dogmatic beliefs, even though they weren't religious. No crime has ever been committed because people became to reasonable and critical of beliefs.

What, you think he was the only one? I could list names all day. Like Mao, Lenin, Pol Pot, not to mention all the people who worked for them and agreed with their beliefs. (Hell, there's even an argument to be made that Hitler was an atheist, but that's a debate for another time.)

Do you even know what the word "dogma" means? Because I don't think you do. Dogma is an authoritative principle or set of principles laid down by a group. That's it. Your devotion to the principles of "reasonable and critical beliefs" is just as dogmatic and can just as easily be turned into a murderous belief system. All it takes is enough people to decide that anyone with "unreasonable" beliefs must be converted by force or killed to prevent them from spreading their "unreasonable" beliefs to others.

I'm not even saying that religious people haven't done violent things. But your assertion that atheists "know better" and haven't done violent things is simply absurd. Indeed, it's exactly that kind of thinking that leads to this kind of violence. Once you've convinced yourself that anyone who disagrees with you is basically evil, it's pretty easy to justify doing evil things to them.

Dogma has many meanings, but it should be clear from the context that I'm referring to a belief that is believed to be absolutely true and self-evident, independently of any rationality.

When someone refers to a belief as "dogmatic", they're referring to beliefs that are adamantly held despite being unreasonable and/or unjustified. So your second paragraph says that it's dogmatic for me to avoid being dogmatic, which is just silly. Furthermore, it's a much greater leap than you purport to go from non-dogmatism to violence against dogmatists. There are a lot of groups of people who do things I don't like, but the thought never occurs to me to commit violence because of it.

Of course atheists commit crimes unrelated to religion, but nobody kills in the name of atheism because atheism isn't even a belief, but a lack of one. Religion, on the other hand doesn't make every single person evil; I never said it did. But it's an excellent tool for politicians to get the common people to do atrocious things while believing they're serving the greater good. Furthermore, the statistics like the disproportionately low number of atheists in prison are telling.

"Dogma has many meanings"

No, dogma has exactly one meaning. It's a principle or set of principles laid down by a group. All beliefs are dogmatic, and whether they are held independently of rationality is your opinion, not fact.

"When someone refers to a belief as "dogmatic", they're referring to beliefs that are adamantly held despite being unreasonable and/or unjustified."

But that's the problem. What you consider "unreasonable and/or unjustified" is your own subjective opinion. To the person who holds those beliefs, they are completely reasonable and justified (otherwise why else would they hold them). In fact, in their eyes your beliefs would sound unreasonable and unjustified.

"So your second paragraph says that it's dogmatic for me to avoid being dogmatic, which is just silly."

I agree, that is silly. Good thing that's not what I said.

What I actually said was that you only think you're fighting against dogmatic beliefs. In reality your beliefs are just as dogmatic as the beliefs you claim to disdain. Why else would you have started this discussion by arguing that religious people are violent whereas atheists are not? Because you dogmatically believe that atheism is an inherently reasonable and rational system of beliefs. You're so wrapped up in your pro-atheism dogma that you can't even conceive of the idea of someone using atheism as justification to commit a crime. And every example of atheists committing crimes is countered by a No True Scotsman fallacy. "Well, those atheists may have murdered millions of people, but they weren't really doing it in the name of atheism."

"Furthermore, it's a much greater leap than you purport to go from non-dogmatism to violence against dogmatists."

There's an old saying. Fascism will come to America in the name of anti-fascism.

This is the ultimate atheist fallacy (second only to "atheism isn't a belief, but a lack of one"). It's the fallacy that you can't possibly start marching down the road of violence and tyranny because the very cause you're fighting is defeating violence and tyranny. The Russian Revolution of 1917 was billed as a struggle against tyranny and oppression, and we all know how that turned out.

"Of course atheists commit crimes unrelated to religion, but nobody kills in the name of atheism because atheism isn't even a belief, but a lack of one."

Nonsense. A belief is just an acceptance that something is true. Your statement that there is no God is just as much a belief as someone else's statement that there is one.

Not to mention that this simply isn't true. Those names I listed up there? Every single one of them killed people in the name of atheism. But you contend that they didn't really kill in the name of atheism, they killed for other reasons. One might say your refusal to believe that atheists can kill in the name of atheism is a very dogmatic belief.

"But it's an excellent tool for politicians to get the common people to do atrocious things while believing they're serving the greater good."

Again, see Soviet Russia from 1922-1991 and China under the rule of Mao Zedung. Both atheist states run by atheist rulers who used atheism as a tool to get common people to do horrible things while believing they served the greater good.

"Furthermore, the statistics like the disproportionately low number of atheists in prison are telling."

Might have something to do with the disproportionately low number of atheists in general.

[link] 2nd definition

In reality your beliefs are just as dogmatic as the beliefs you claim to disdain.

My beliefs are formed by unbiased investigation and weighing of facts, as opposed to beliefs that are formed based on the way the individual was raised or some other arbitrary basis. However, you redefined dogma to include any system of belief regardless of how it was formulated, which means everyone is dogmatic by definition, which makes the term meaningless.

"Well, those atheists may have murdered millions of people, but they weren't really doing it in the name of atheism."

Well, they weren't. Your example, Joseph Stalin, fought in the name of Marxism, political and economic centralism, and other values. Assuming he was violent because he didn't believe in a magic skydaddy is exactly as silly as assuming he was violent because he had a mustache. (Post hoc ergo propter hoc)

This is the ultimate atheist fallacy (second only to "atheism isn't a belief, but a lack of one").

I don't believe in mother goose either. Is that also a belief? Or does "lack of belief" seem more fitting?

It's the fallacy that you can't possibly start marching down the road of violence and tyranny because the very cause you're fighting is defeating violence and tyranny.

Atheists know that if they did anything extreme, like illegalizing religion or bombing a church, the backlash would cause people to cling to their religions with greater fervor, which would be counterproductive no matter how much the activist dislikes religion. This is one reason that motions against religion take the form of civil debate and literature.

Both atheist states run by atheist rulers who used atheism as a tool to get common people to do horrible things while believing they served the greater good.

In order for that to be true, the majority would have to honestly believe that religion is false and harbor no ties to any faith (and not just claim to be atheist), which is highly unlikely given that religious people have always been in the majority.

Might have something to do with the disproportionately low number of atheists in general.

You might think that, if you don't know what the word "disproportionate" means. Atheists take up 8-16% of the general population, but only 0.21% of the prison population. [link] Whether that's because atheists have superior morality or because they're smart enough not to get caught is for another debate. But there is support for the latter, in case you were curious.

"2nd definition"

Whoever wrote that entry chose the most biased and narrow definition they could find. Dogma is often authoritative, but being unproved or unprovable is not a necessary quality. And even if that was the most common definition of the word dogma, many atheists fit that definition to a T.

That's a common problem with atheists. They're so sure that their beliefs are automatically more rational and reasonable than everyone else's that they can't see how dogmatic they really are.

(Also, that's the definition of "dogmatic" not "dogma". Verb forms of a word are often distorted beyond the original meaning through improper use. Much like "fascistic" is often used as a catch-all term for any policy that someone happens to dislike. In any event, go check answers.com for the word dogma. The real definition is closer to what I said.)

"My beliefs are formed by unbiased investigation and weighing of facts"

So you say, but how can you claim to be an unbiased judge of your own beliefs? The answer is, you can't.

Not to mention the people whose beliefs you disagree with would likely say the same thing. I've met plenty of Christians, Jews, Muslims, and others who swore up and down that they came to their beliefs through unbiased investigation and weighing of facts. And who are you to say they didn't?

"However, you redefined dogma to include any system of belief regardless of how it was formulated, which means everyone is dogmatic by definition, which makes the term meaningless."

I agree, the term "dogmatic" is completely meaningless. That's my entire point. It's ceased to be a meaningful word and become an ad hominem attack used by people who want to ridicule beliefs they disagree with.

The word "dogma" is supposed to refer to the core principles of a group that are upheld by all members. You can't be a libertarian if you believe in socialized medicine, you can't be a feminist if you believe women shouldn't be allowed to vote, and you can't be a Christian if you don't believe in the divinity of Jesus Christ.

That's all dogma is. But the word has been stretched and distorted, mainly by people like you who try to turn it into a general insult against anyone who doesn't believe in atheism. Hence, it has become useless.

"Well, they weren't."

Yes, they were. The thousands of people who died under their regimes because they refused to give up their faith is all the proof anyone should require.

Just because they also murdered people for other reasons doesn't mean they didn't murder in the name of atheism.

"Assuming he was violent because he didn't believe in a magic skydaddy"

Who said anything about that? You asserted that atheists don't murder in the name of atheism. I refuted your generalization by providing examples of atheists who did murder in the name of atheism. I didn't say atheism caused them to murder, just that they used it as a justification to murder. Which contradicts your original point that only religious people murder in the name of their beliefs.

"I don't believe in mother goose either."

Mother Goose is a fictional character that no one has ever claimed to be real. Of course you don't believe in her. Yeesh, what a terrible example.

"Atheists know that if they did anything extreme, like illegalizing religion or bombing a church, the backlash would cause people to cling to their religions with greater fervor, which would be counterproductive no matter how much the activist dislikes religion. This is one reason that motions against religion take the form of civil debate and literature."

Because of course, atheists are always more rational and reasonable than religious people. Do you see what I mean about your beliefs being dogmatic? You're making an arrogant assertion of unproved and unprovable principles. Namely, that atheists are inherently rational and religious people are not. That somehow, atheists are incapable of being violent extremists. By your own definition, you are wrapped up in dogmatic beliefs.

You're also (again) disregarding the fact that atheists have done exactly the things you describe. Between 1996 and 2000 there were nearly 1000 church burnings. Of the ~100 suspects brought in motivations varied greatly, but more than a few claimed to be motivated by atheism. Not a majority, but it does happen. Which puts the lie to your claim that atheists don't commit acts of violence in the name of atheism. (You could say that those individuals were really acting out of mental derangement and just using atheism as an excuse, but I could also say the exact same thing about a religious extremist. So that argument really gets us nowhere.)

"In order for that to be true, the majority would have to honestly believe that religion is false and harbor no ties to any faith (and not just claim to be atheist), which is highly unlikely given that religious people have always been in the majority."

So now it's because atheists are a minority that they can't possibly murder someone or do something for irrational extremist reasons? You're becoming more arrogant by the second.

"You might think that, if you don't know what the word "disproportionate" means. Atheists take up 8-16% of the general population, but only 0.21% of the prison population."

So wait a minute. Let me see if I've got this straight.

When people who identify as atheists commit mass murder, they're just claiming to be atheists and don't honestly believe religion is false.

But when someone who identifies as, say, a Christian commits a crime and goes to prison, you automatically assume that he honestly believes in his religion? That he's not just mouthing the words without really believing them?

Can you say "hypocrisy"? I knew that you could.

"Whether that's because atheists have superior morality or because they're smart enough not to get caught is for another debate. But there is support for the latter, in case you were curious."

If you think IQ tests are an accurate measure of anything, I've got some bad news for you...
