"Although atheists don’t have any formally set book of principles to live by or aspire to, most of us, I’d imagine, do have value systems. Beliefs, if you wish. Most of us do believe in being a good person. Definitions of what makes a good person will vary from atheist to atheist. Sure. Atheism doesn’t involve a kind of clean-cut objective benchmark to adhere to; there is no reference point that espouses how one should live a righteous life. Some atheists, myself included, would never want to live a ‘righteous’ life. Some of us don’t even like using the word ‘good’. But why is that a problem? It just means that if you want to find out how the atheist sees the world, you’ll have to ask him."This is followed by a standard Tu Quoque referencing internal differences within Christianity and Islam. And then,
"Atheism is a (non) structure made by humans, for humans. It is an undefined framework to be constantly built upon, and fine-tuned, for there is no superlative authority on any single matter. It is a way of life that allows the space for your beliefs to grow and evolve, as better knowledge and better wisdom emerges from the shadows of our past.This is gilding the VOID. Atheism is, in fact, more than a non-structure; it is a launching point out of the Void and into self-involved fantasies of elitism, followed by categorizing the Other into Victims and Persecutors, with the Atheist as the messiah/savior due to his self-perceived superiority, both intellectual and moral. There most definitely is a "superlative authority" which Atheists claim for themselves; they claim "logic" and "evidence". This acquired "superlative authority" is a direct consequence of the Atheist Void. If the Atheist doesn't exhibit it as is claimed here, then perhaps he is still in the Void, without any principles at all.
"To atheists such as myself, atheism doesn’t actually mean shit. It’s not a defining character trait. It’s not an important aspect of my life."This cannot be the case. It is false. Atheism is the void which removes human value and moral responsibility and replaces them with human accidental existence under evolution, and the inevitability of the Will To Power as the messiahist, elitist, Progressive moral code, which emerges naturally from the do-it-yourself morals of emerging Atheists.
"I write about it often purely because I find ideas relating to beliefs about the supernatural interesting. Atheism means, quite simply, that we don’t credulously subscribe to any single philosophy on how to live life, and that we don’t have an opinion on that which is said to exist but is, really, beyond what’s known to exist. That’s all."Of course that's all, to the Atheist. To an Atheist, it means nothing, whatsoever, because Atheists have no necessary beliefs in common, except for their superlative authority. So when one encounters an Atheist, one knows precisely that this person could actually believe anything, whatsoever, and believe it with superlative authority. And asking him/her what s/he believes is a fruitless exercise, because the relativism which infects Atheism allows the Atheist to claim anything... whatsoever.
This Atheist concludes,
"My religious friends, there’s no need fear we, the heathens. We’re just like you. We’re just doing what we can to get by. Chuggling along. Singin’ a song. Whacka, whacka, whacka – ice cream cones and pony rides.No, we are not alike. Not at all. Without any fixed, objective, known, authoritative moral principles - those which do not necessarily match behaviors because they were created to do that, those which are subject to change upon a whim, those which are relative and not fixed due to moral authority - without these characteristics regarding your Atheist "beliefs" there is no reason to believe you, or to trust you. That you either do not understand that, or think that we do not understand that, demonstrates a certain lack of credibility before we even start to know you.
Life’s a bitch, and then you die. Let’s try and make it easier, for both you and I.
Chugga-chugga meatball soup – hey!"
