An Atheist in a Theist World

I once heard it said that being an atheist in a theist world is like being the only sober person at a party. I think this is pretty accurate sometimes. I also think that it seems like I’m one of the few sane people in a world gone mad.

The way I see it, religion really does warp people’s thinking. For example, if someone is starving would it me moral for an alcohol company to offer to give them some food and a bottle of scotch plus an hour long lecture on why drinking can help you forget about your problems? Of course not! No one would say, well at least the starving person is getting the food they need. In my recent article about how religious groups often use tragedies like the earthquake in Japan to push their product, I have gotten tons of Christians and even a few atheists defending the absurdly immoral activities of Christian groups pushing Bibles and sermons with their “relief.”

It seems strange to me that so many people go out of their way to defend insanely immoral activities done by religious people. Yesterday, I saw a clip from Chris Matthews’s show Hardball in which he was talking to the Philadelphia district attorney about the massive pedophile priest scandal that took place here recently. Both Matthews and the DA are both Catholic. They talked about how wrong it was that these priests did what they did, but not once did they talk about the systematic way that the Church attempted to cover up these crimes. The obvious question is, why do these pedophile scandals always seem to involve Catholic priests and not Buddhist monks?

The point here is that for some bizarre reason, religion gets a pass for their insane behavior because we live in a mostly theistic world. Even among many atheists, religion gets a pass for their insanity. When we talk about faith and science, it should be obvious which one is more accurate. Yet whenever they are in conflict (which is all the time) almost all theists and even some atheists will defend faith over reason.

It is time to stop giving the religious a pass on their insanity. If we are ever going to live in a sane world, we need to call theists out on their bullshit. I will end with some words from my esteemed colleague from the Cult of Dusty, Dusty Smith:

    I did a bit a little while ago about being an atheist is like being in a zombie movie. Of course, the undead would be Christo-zombies.

    Maybe monks hide it better, got one on the run now down here in Houston. Plus most open societies are predominantly Christian so you wouldn’t hear about it as much, I’m guessing. The truth is that the more people go out of their way to condemn something, the greater the chance they are hiding the truth about themselves. Look no further than conservative politicians for proof of this tendency.
