"In some awful, strange, paradoxical way, atheists tend to take religion more seriously than the practitioners" - Jonathon Miller.
I've found this to be true.
I don't know if anyone can give reasons why it is so.

Because of the damage religion does by these practitioners.

As long as religion brings forth good things it will have a role in society. If it brings forth the evil we witness on a daily basis then I would prefer to address these issues.

Think of religion today being a placebo pill filled with a poisonous substance. It might solve one or two isues but it creates a whole new set of problems that are much more dangerous.

They have no other option than to be crying foul! People with the highest rate of suicide in the western world are atheists. They get frustrated easily.

They are three degrees of fools. A big fool is one who doesnt know and doesnt know that he doesnt know and doesnt want to know.

A bigger fool is one who displays his foolishnes publicly

a biggest fool persist in his foolly and convince others to acept their foolishnes

unfortunately, atheist posses three of the them.

You are 100% right that religion will always be a part of humanity. That does not guarantee that the Abrahamic faiths will be around in 100 years time.

Calm down! What's with the paranoia?
I'm not even a christian. Why the hurry to deride christians? There are hundreds of religions you could have attacked.
And you fall on the opposite side of this story since you are a satanist! Or is satanism the same thing as atheism to you?
I hope you are not that confused my brother?
I was curious about the issue hence this topic.
BTW, explain christian intelligence?

Unfortuantely, Satanist doesnt always equate to atheists

I perfectly understand satanism. But that does not change anything.
You can't be religious and be an atheist at the same time bro.
What's your definition of religion? And god?

There are atheist Buddhists.


Religion is not tied to god.

Atheist Buddhists? Didn't know that.
How do they explain themselves?
Religion is not tied to (a) god(s)?
I foresaw all these, that's why I asked what your definition of religion and god is.
