I've been thinking and reading the threads here lately and the internet as a whole. I try to keep clear of threads which discuss the bible, because frankly, I'm not a good debater. In general, is it all worth it? I mean the arguments between theist and atheist, proving God's existence. What does it serve? You get to hear atheists daily lambasting the Bible, discrediting it, making fun of it, bashing it, and almost anything you can think of which truly amazes me sometimes. To the most educated and to the average Joe, everyone joins in the fun, I mean, those in the minute portion of the population who don't believe. They even made a book in which the subject is about - GOD DOESN'T EXIST. GOD DELUSION. Even a Scientist - "SOMETHING CAN COME OUT FROM NOTHING, then God is unnecessary." It's almost an allergic reaction. That nothing to them didn't even do anything. Why the profound reaction to nothing? Unbelievable sometimes.
Kind of reminds you of the memories in grade school where kids get to tease and make fun of you. What does it serve anyway? Is it some sort of a movement? A phobia of being labeled crazy? A profound hatred on something that isn't even there? Pity? Compassion? Saving someone from embarrassment? Testing your convincing power? Get to say first, "I told you so. I'm right, you are wrong." Preventing someone from going to a mental facility because they are delusional? If that is the case, almost all of the world population are mental patient. And when argument fails, the only resort is to insult, or to put it in another way, to punch him in the nose, merely out of frustration, getting all worked out on something which doesn't even exist to them. And yet, funny it may seem, believe in Aliens from another planet. This is coming from Hawkings himself and stating it's dangerous communicating with Aliens, "DO NOT COMMUNICATE WITH THEM, I REPEAT DO NOT." ET Phone home.
I'm just confused and wondering, why is it that way? Why is it common among atheist in the internet? I'm not against atheist. Not all of them are that way. Just trying to understand the psychology behind it.
I mean, at the end of the day, everything remains the same anyway. You turn on your TV, watch the news, have your dinner, wash up, and go to sleep. What's the purpose?
