Atheist and Agnostic

Despite what some may believe. People who choose to believe in nothing or are open minded that there could very well be a higher power but choose not to acknowledge it. These people whether they choose the title of Atheist or Agnostic are not heartless. I’ve heard all to often that people with no faith such as Atheist and Agnostic people have no morals and no compassion. Just by uttering that statement shows just how ignorant people can be. When in reality people of little or no faith can be some of the most caring and genuine people on this planet. They can be the most peaceful and loving as well. Yet a lot of people would believe that they are nothing more than a heartless group of people. I find that appalling especially when I know many people who are either Atheist or Agnostic people and as I said before they are much more compassionate and loving than almost any other people I know. Not to mention I’m not trying to sound totally against people of any other faith but they are much more tolerant than most other people. That being said I know several extremely religious people who are great people and very compassionate who are also very tolerant.

Just remember everyone if you are going to judge someone at least give them time to show you who they really are before you just pass judgement based on something like religion. Especially when you could be even more wrong than you could possibly imagine. You may think some random christian is a evil person who pickets gay marriage. When in reality he/she could be an advocate to the LGBT community. Or vice-versa you could meet and Atheist and think they are a devil worshiping evil doer. When in reality they are social workers who save kids from bad homes. They could be charity workers who just want to make the world a better place.

Really the overall lesson to be learned is don’t judge a book by it’s cover. If you do you could very well lose the opportunity of a lifetime to embark on a journey of open minded enlightenment.

    I like the part where you attempt to claim your more tolerant of people and insult religious people at the same time.

  • Haha thanks. Although I am extremely tolerant towards people no matter who they are. I just have noticed that that isn’t always true with some religious people.

      perhaps…but perhaps not. Is it possible that maybe your schema of the subject has been altered? Is it fair to pass judgement onto those, when you yourself have not lived among them. After all, (and while i mean no disrespect of course), i find it difficult to believe that you have attended church for a great majority of your life. And i do see you follow the LGBT community. Perhaps, (as many people do) you are looking at things from a one sided perspective. Now don’t get the wrong impression, i’m not accusing you of anything that every other american doesn’t do. And i may very well be, looking at this from a one sided perspective as well. But my point is this. Every day people accuse people of being racist, or sexist, or looking upon others in a derogatory way. But how can any of us truly be sure of these things? I may be getting off track, but long story short, how can you truly be sure Christians think this way, when you yourself have never truly lived among them. For instance, if you only ever read of news that supports your thinking, and your way of life? Are you yourself not guilty of a closed mind? (And once again i would just like to add, that I, and nearly every other American is probably guilty of this as well. However i merely felt the need to pass my thinking on to you.)

      • I understand what you mean now that I am reading through this for the fourth time I what you are talking about. My intention of this little rant was to show both sides but I suppose while writing I got caught up in the rant itself. In doing so I completely forgot to show the other side. As I will not edit this article as it is final in its publishing aside from grammatical or spelling errors. I will however make an article showing the other side. Thank you very much for your feed back. I do know for a fact aside from what was stated in this rant. That there are people of any religion that are as good or even better people than the ones I know of. So thank you very much. Also if you would like me to add your own little section to my sequel rant for this, or for that matter any suggestions at all are welcome. Please feel free to email me @ dustinstrong1997@gmail.com 🙂

          First I would like to apologize for the extended amount of time It took for me to respond. Secondly…I would like to thank you for hearing me out. It seems like everyone now days prefers to mock and argue with their political opponents rather than listen to them, and have a civil conversation. It’s nice to see the opposite from you.

        You think juat cause Ihave never been to chirch you no more than us? Is that it? U think it is us with a closed mind? Just like u cons toblame everyone but urselfs.

        • Excuse me I approved your comments for one reason and that is because this is supposed to be a free forum for open discussion. But I will not tolerate hate. Also please learn how to spell and speak in actual words not shorthand or texting language. Thank You.
