Does Atheism hold a belief system?Posted by: TheKandyCinema
I personally find all Atheists hold many Atheists hold an SJW, left-winged viewpoint. I find Atheism to be a left-winged belief system, so I wanted to know what you guys think. I don't believe a God exists, but I don't consider myself Atheist for this belief system reasoning.
Yes, Atheism holds a belief system.
No, Atheism does not hold a belief system.
It is a loose, unstructured belief system. Atheists generally hold to a belief there is no supreme being. They generally believe what follows, that the initial uncreated, eternal thing either does not exist, or that the source of all things, which is the one eternal thing, is something unintelligent. The atheist belief requires greater faith than does theism.
Strongly structured and rigid.
Yes, all atheists believe that God does not exist. That is the definition of "atheist," if you believe otherwise, you are not an atheist.
They believe there is no God. Because you don't believe in God must mean that you believe there is no God.
Anything that is worth arguing or debating is something believed in.
Because when I want to know what a word means (for example, the word athiest) I use a dictionary instead of the media.
Just like unemployment does not hold a work ethic.
All it means is a lack of belief in any deity. Outside that, there is nothing: that means all different sorts of people can be atheists. Atheists can be spiritual or secular, republican or democrat, 9/11 truther or not: it doesn't matter as long as you lack a belief in a god.
By definition, the only criteria it takes to make one an atheist is to not believe in any gods. Sure, atheists tend to be left-wing a progressive, but none of that is inherent in atheism.
Pretty much the only thing about atheism is the disbelief in a deity. There are spiritual atheists, non-spiritual atheists, atheistic Buddhists, agnostic atheists, you name it.
All atheism means is that you don't believe in a God.
Atheism is a non-belief system.
No. The definition of atheism is quite specific, so the structure of belief such as SJW, Left-Winged and Liberalism are irrelevant to the definition of atheism. Sure, atheists can be leftists, SJWs, liberals but the word of atheism is not the best way to classify them.
The definition of an atheist is a person who lacks belief in gods. Many atheists may be left wing, but it is fallacious to say that being liberal is a result of atheism. Rather, they are both rooted from things in their environment that affected them such as world events and the people around them. An atheist that was right wing (e.g. supports gun rights, opposes abortion) would still be an atheist by all means.
Atheists don't have to believe a thing to be atheist. They just have to not think any single religion we've come up with is right. I don't think there's necessarily no being that created the universe. But I sure as hell know that we wouldn't be right about them.
Atheism is not a religion, there is no belief system. Atheism is the LACK of belief.
I am an atheist, and I know loads of other atheists who disagree with me about morals, the universe, its beginning, and pretty much everything else!
