Who are Atheists and how they perceive God

Atheists are the one who lacks belief in God or any supernatural thing or a man constructed illusions of the mind.

Who are atheists and what do they think?

Atheists are free thinkers. Not bound to any religion, astrology, numerology, God-men, supernatural powers/ beings or superstition.

Atheist believe that the person who lacks belief or faith in self; is forced to believe in statues, supernatural power or anything that their religion follows.

Atheists believe in humans and humanity; atheists are logical and rational people.

Who is God according to Atheist?

A man constructed belief/ faith in mind. Nothing more than an expression of a product from a weaker human mind. Atheists believe in the truth. Atheists believe in science and evidences.

Where there is evidence no one speaks of “faith”, we do not speak of faith that 1 and 1 are 2 or that the earth is round. We only speak of faith when we wish to substitute emotion for evidence and logic.

We don’t believe in forgiveness of God. We don’t need forgiveness of God but of each other and ourselves.

Faith is a very clever concept. They invented God from their imagination and they use faith to justify his absence from reality.

– CJ Anderson.

“God works in mysterious ways” is a euphemism for “stop asking hard and difficult questions”.

– Hemant Mehta

The need for a scapegoat who is very vast, very unlikely , very unmatched and inaccessible is one of the reasons people believe in the “good and the impeccable God”.

– Abdullah ul Qussaimi

I do not believe in immortality of an individual, and i believe ethics to be an exclusively human concern with no superhuman authority behind it.

– Albert Einstein

What does a prayer mean to Atheist?

Prayer means the self talk. Anything that you read in Geeta/ Bible or Quran or any Holy book that you consider those Chalisas, proverbs and Aartis. Those are nothing but positive affirmations that you read out louder daily and bow down to the statues (faith in painted statues, labelled as God). Different religions have different God.

For example:

Few lines from Hanuman Chalisa –

“Jo sat bar path kare kohi
Chutehi bandhi maha sukh hohi
Jo yah padhe Hanuman Chalisa
Hoye siddhi sakhi Gaureesa.”

If you concentrate on the lines , you will understand that you are asked to read this affirmation 7 times to get strength. People have created various Gods for various affirmation practice, Lakshmi for money, Ganpati- for relationship (known as Mangal Murti), Hanuman for Bal (strength) and many others. No offense; example was only given to explain the concept of praying.

Whereas, we atheists believe in those affirmations but we would rather execute and act on it instead of wasting time listening to it in return of money from the God-men (sadhus)/ or reading Holy books. Atheists are more logical and practical than theists.

How does an Atheist see a religion?

I don’t know which is more dangerous; that religious beliefs force some people to choose between knowledge and myth or that pointing out how religion can purvey ignorance is taboo. To do so risks being branded as intolerant of religion.

– Lawrence M Krauss

Morality is doing right, no matter what you are told, religion is doing what you are told, no matter what is right.

– H. L . Mencken

Religion is here; so the poor don’t murder the rich.

– Napoleon

Religion is a self perpetuating dangerous scam that leads masses to oppress themselves.
