Yes, atheism is rooted in ignorance.
No, atheism is not rooted in ignorance.
Atheism is rooted in ignorance, and while many atheist aren't ignorant themselves, they are being deceived. Blatantly denying the existence of our Creator is -- as the poll's picture suggests -- like a fish denying the existence of water. God's presence is absolutely clear, and we see Him in everything . . . whether it be DNA, the size of our planet, or the overall beauty of the universe.
Well, yes I would say so. Ignorance by definition is "lack of knowledge or information." This is true for the most part on atheism, a large majority of atheists are no atheists because of scientific knowledge. They just can't fathom the idea of a being higher than them. Know, if you are aware of some of the argument for God's existence then you'd know theism has a much stronger case. This has been shown through various philosophical arguments, the atheist only relies on the argument that there's no evidence, but then that leaves you with the problem of "absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence". Saying you can't prove a negative is another thing atheists rely on, this is simply false. You can prove something doesn't exist, I can prove that there are no dinosaurs in my house etc. But if you can't prove a negative, atheism relies on a negative. Therefore you can't prove atheism. I'd say a more reasonable standpoint is agnosticism rather than atheism, though many atheists are actually agnostic if you look into it.
They think that the big bang just happened
Both sides are rooted in ignorance.
Ignorance is a lack of knowledge or experience about something. I was a Catholic, and later an Anglican for decades of my life. I attended Sunday school for years and have read the bible cover to cover multiple times. I made a reasoned and rational switch to an atheist point of view towards the afterlife and spirituality after great soul searching and walked away from religiosity on philosophical, moral and rational grounds. To say that an atheist such as myself is ignorant, is in itself, a highly ignorant and grossly generalized statement.
A recent review of studies found that religious belief is inversely associated with intelligence. http://psr.sagepub.com/content/early/2013/08/02/1088868313497266
Atheism is not rooted in ignorance. In fact, it is rooted in a complete denial of God because Atheists do not want to be under the moral code that the Almighty God gives. They have chosen their own fallen human nature over the perfect ways of God. It is not ignorance but defiance and denial that they choose.
People have their own beliefs. If you don't believe in something it doesn't make you ignorant or anything.
Ignorance is the state of not having knowledge in a specific field or just overall. Most atheists usually have a reason for not believing in "God(s)". Usually, it's science, so no. But then again, everyone is born as an atheist and every newborn baby lacks knowledge therefore ignorant, so I guess so. But I'm guessing that's in totally different context, huh? I feel like I'm arguing with myself again. "GOD" damn it!
you call your self a christian and judge,in all holy commandments by god he is the only to judge not you and if you believe in hell you will burn there because in the old testament no sin is forgiven and judgement is a sin.
I swear, if I see one more ignorant religious nut say "atheists think the universe was created by nothing" I'm gonna scream
Atheism is only the rejection of supernatural claims asserted without evidence. It is merely a stance rooted in skepticism. Unless proof is presented, there is no good reason to belive anything. Faith is not a virtue, it is the glorification of voluntary ignorance.
