DoDoWeeb Posted October 30, 2019 Report Share Posted October 30, 2019 Hello. I'm an 19-year-old ASD gnostic atheist socialist. My atheism is the result of my interactions with theists, my understanding of theistic arguments and philosophy, and the failure of theism to provide it's good reasons to believe. I had one really major theistic interaction when I was in high school. I was with this dude (we'll call him CName), that was rather upset that I didn't believe in a deity. "Why don't you believe in god?" "I have no reason." "You need believe in god." "You need you justify that reason." That's was enough to tick him off. Most of our talks became arguments after that, mostly about his beliefs and why. He has a very egotistical view of reality and doesn't feel like he needs to justify it all to anybody. CName came up with many reasons to not justify his claims. "I can't do X or Y because A, B, or C law" "That's what you need to find out." "Why do we need evidence?" This went on until I graduated. I found out through my interactions, is that basically believes anything that he deems trustworthy (and that's a lot), such as his chums, YouTube (the guy is basically a graduate of YouTube university. According to him, he's some sort of detective to find out about cryptozoology), and his father says. As as result, he believes a lot of of bullshit. They are the following: That he’s special Dragons Magic Harry Potter Ghosts Elvis never died/faked his death Michael Jackson faked his death Non-avian dinosaurs never went extinct and that birds are not dinosaurs Superheroes Spells and that he is a wizard Curses Transformation Power Rangers Half human, half alien beings Were-Animals Human Genetic Modification Spirit Animals (Book Series) Superintelligence Super Strength Skylanders Monsters An afterlife That he is sent from God That atheists just hate god, are jealous of God, his creation, etc That atheists are bad people and they can’t be good Demons Angels Digimon Pokemon Yu-Gi-Oh! (mentions shadow realm a lot) Dimensional Travel and Dimensions Time Travel Doctor Who Immortality Dimensional Agelessness Dimensional Forms Potions Human vs immortals dichotomy Apocalypse of mankind (because pollution and stuff. He's basically hard green) Absolute power Alchemy Immortal Science (I don't know what this means, it might as well be called pseudoscience) Creationism Bigfoot Vampires Voltron That he is a god (of the animals from what I can remember) That humans can't write their own future, due to some alien law Horror movie icons are real That all humans are weak, pathetic and that they deserve to die That I or any else like me deserves to die just because I won't allow him to get away with his **** Yeah. Its a **** load of dumb. He basically thinks that he is some sort time-lord wizard god of the animals that is sent from god to purge the world of the atheists. All to feel the right kind of special. I got death threats from him, supernatural (shadow realm, black hole) or just passive aggressive ones. Just for questioning his beliefs. I couldn't even make this up if I tried and it's hard for me to believe what I'm typing or have typed, so I'm not very surprised if you don't believe me. But it's the reason why I'm so anti-faith; belief in the absence or in spite of the evidence is what led him to believe in this. And I'm sad that I didn't get to him sooner.
