Why Are Most Nigerian Atheist Single, Lonely And/or Miserable? by konjinus(m): 9:55am On Nov 25, 2017
Good morning Nairaland. Happy Sabbath to whom it may concern. I want to ask this cos I've always wondered why is it that most atheists I know look lonely and miserable. Just take a look at any atheist u know and u will notice they are either single or frustrated And miserable. Why is it so? Is it because they lack God in their lives or is it because of a reason I'm yet to understand. Whatever the reason may be I think we should give them our support as many of them are known to have committed suicide in the end. Now I'm not saying that religious people do not commit suicide but the rate at which atheists commit suicide is alarming. Most people that commit suicide are atheist openly to the society or they may just be too shy to declare that they are. May the light and peace from God shine on our beloved brothers and sisters who claim not to believe in God/or hate his existence. Amen cheesy

"Most atheists I know"

since there's no way of verifying if this is true or not..... I'll take it with a pinch of salt

you then said "Take a look at any atheist you know and you'll notice they're either single or frustrated And miserable"
nope! almost all atheists I know aren't "either single or frustrated And miserable" this puts kibosh on that point

The fallacies upon which your OP rests on are called "Hasty Generalisation", fallacy of composition"

Hasty Generalisation is an informal fallacy of faulty generalization by reaching an inductive generalization based on insufficient evidence—essentially making a rushed conclusion without considering all of the variables.

Fallacy of Composition is the error of assuming that what is true of a member of a group is true for the group as a whole

for instance I've never met a short atheist so I simply conclude that there are no short atheists

You then ruined whatever sense you're trying to make by saying

Whatever the reason may be I think we should give them our support as many of them are known to have committed suicide in the end. Now I'm not saying that religious people do not commit suicide but the rate at which atheists commit suicide is alarming.
This is where dishonesty starts rearing his ugly head

The earlier premise of your post rests on your personal observations, now tell me how many suicide news you see on front-page of this great website are said to have been carried out by atheists? it shouldn't be so hard to point them out since "The rate at which atheists commit suicide is alarming"

you also said
Most people that commit suicide are atheist openly to the society or they may just be too shy to declare that they are.
This is a meaningless claim as I can turn it around on its head by saying "Most people that commit suicide are Theists openly to the society or they may just be too shy to declare that they are." and its just as valid as yours



This is my own hypothesis on the reason behind this incoherent garbage you just spilled and I'll put it in a syllogism

1. You think without your belief in a god, you'll be miserable and frustrated

2. Number 1 makes your subconscious create the idea that whoever doesn't believe in any god has to be living a miserable life filled with frustrations

3. You think all atheists therefore has to be living a miserable life full of frustration

4. This makes you look for signs of frustration and misery in every atheist you know

5. 2 and 3 combine and makes you see frustration and misery in the life of every atheist


its just a hypothesis anyways but I'll be surprised if the hypothesis is falsified

These questions aren't related to the topic of this thread so I'll ignore them, you can open a fresh thread on that and I'll probably attend to it
