Why are many atheists so arrogant?
And this arrogance does not apply to their views on religion only. It extends to their other opinions such as politics, literature, art etc. They pride themselves on being much more intelligent than others and its really quite annoying and off putting when…
That wasn’t funny, and you’re not very good at trolling. Please stop.
It wasn’t meant to be funny and nor did I have any intention to troll.
I guess I did well then?
All you’ve done was erect a great big, ugly straw man and set it on fire. No one was impressed. Please stay off the atheism tag if all you can do is disparage and spread hate. You’re being rude, and it’s not welcome here.
See, I don’t actually give a flying monkey about impressing anyone. I’m also not spreading hatred, just talking about my experience with the atheists I’ve come across. (Notice I did not say this about ALL atheists in my post) Also since my post talks about atheism, I will use the tag.
So basically you’re engaging in the fallacy of hasty generalization. You really shouldn’t do that if you want to be taken seriously. (keep in mind you don’t have to apply a false behavior to all membersof a group for it to be a hasty generalization, just a large part of it, which is what you’re doing.)
I get it. You guys are frustrated by religion and its effect on people. Sometimes I get frustrated by certain religious people too because a lot of stupid brainless backward people follow religion and do stupid stuff. Trust me I KNOW the frustration. But honestly it’s pretty pathetic when atheists treat all non-atheists as unintelligent with poor IQ,and constantly think of their own selves as much more superior.
And now you’re back to knocking over strawmen, just like Toothbrush was accusing you of.
This gets to the point that you can’t even have a normal conversation with them without them bringing in their condescending tone in everything.
And here we have an example of anecdotal fallacy, which is another form of hasty generalization. You’re mistakenly applying your own limited experience onto a much larger group. You really shouldn’t do that.
You could say the same about certain religious people too right? ..However when atheists claim to be so different and much more morally righteous than religious people, yet at the same time act pretty much the same way, it becomes very hypocritical.
And this would actually be meaningful, if you weren’t still attacking a strawman. But of course since you are, it’s irrelevant. Also, some people on one side try to deny others their rights, and a few people on the other are just a bit douchey, but harmless. You need to learn how to keep things like this in perspective.
It’s funny because I have not encountered this with agnostics who are phenomenal people and you cant even tell that they are not religious unless they bring it up.
Speaking of things you need to learn, you appear to not actually know what agnosticism or atheism is, how they work, or how they can overlap. Please observe the following:
