Quote from: drunkenshoe on August 23, 2015, 03:11:16 AMI don't get why this is even a discssion topic. Religion is a religion, it is belief system. Trying to distinguish one from the others is just stupid. As long as it is a belief system there will be fanatics.
Quote from: peacewithoutgod on August 22, 2015, 01:56:29 PMDevout Hindus are in many ways far more hateful and more gifted at wielding illogical brain-rot against human intelligence than the Abrahamic religious followers, and in countries where they dominate they are as violent as any religion gets.
Quote from: drunkenshoe on August 23, 2015, 03:11:16 AMIf Hinduism was anything 'better', a lot of things in those countries would be 'better'. It's not. It's the same male dominated bullshit percieved in contrast with Abrahamic religions.
Quote from: drunkenshoe on August 23, 2015, 05:45:04 AMThe majority of Muslims and Christians and Jews are not violent. They are strongly against violence, .. You keep saying you are an atheist, but you are defending a religion .. You are saying that your religion - yes your religion- is something that has a fixed essence; an understanding free and from that but changed in 'practice' or some other ways under the attack of a certain other culture. .. the religions are just primitive control systems invented by men to impose on to societies by a minority in power..The belief systems you are defending are likely to include violent groups as much as the others ..the ones less developed ones into something else ..

Quote from: MagetheEntertainer on September 01, 2014, 05:25:30 PMSo on my personal tumblr blog, I made a post about 3 months ago that said "the Hindu Religion is Bullshit, but man are their gods Trippy" and I still to this day get anonymous messages sent to me from people that I assume are Hindu saying that I'm a piece of shit, and that they want to kill me, ect... At first I was surprised that this was coming from the hindu's because typically this is the type of thing that I would expect Muslims to do. So my question to you all is have you ever been harassed by Hindu's for being an atheist/insulting the Hindu religion?

Quote from: Aupmanyav on August 23, 2015, 09:47:07 AMWhere are you from Kepler-63? Please do not make statements which make people laugh. Kindly understand that although I am an atheist, but I remain a Hindu. The philosophy of Advaita (non-duality) does not allow a God, because then it makes two things - God and the denizens of the world. Advaita includes even the non-living things. Foreign domination for 1000 years has changed the culture of all people in the world. Yes, Hinduism is facing the onslaught of Western culture, but we know through history that it will survive it. Hinduism is a very tenacious religion. In that case I would say that your understanding of religion is very deficient. Religion is a protector of society, a doctor to its adherents, and is a scientific researcher a step ahead of science. Do you know that 3,000 years ago, the Nasadiya hymn in RigVeda declared that there is a relationship between existence and non-existence? Science came to that stage only in the last Century.We do not have any violent groups. That is why adherents of other religions who came to India have never faced any problem. We did not even ask them to adopt our ways. They were given all freedom.That is a very imperialistic statement. What is that which the developed countries have and India or China do not have. Indian business administrators and technocrats are slowly taking over the highest positions in the corporate world. Our economies are doing the best in the world and we have a nice balance of foreign exchange (USD 354 billion to be exact. Of course, at the moment India cannot compare with China, but the predictions are that by 2050, it will overtake the US economy and be the second largest economy in the world after China).

Quote from: drunkenshoe on August 23, 2015, 10:28:52 AMYou are defining your belief system as something completely different than others and defend that it can explain universe. .. You don't understand what science or religion is. Anyway, it is a waste of time.
