Will Atheism Lead to the Collapse of American Society?Posted by: briantheliberal
According to Bill O'Reilly, a Christian right-wing political commentator on FOX News, the rise of atheism and decline of Christianity in America will lead to the collapse of American society, just like Ancient Rome (who, by the way, collapsed mostly because of Christianity). What do you think? - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yzsG9vgh8Lc
Yes, America will collapse because of atheism.
No, America will not collapse because of atheism.
The rise of atheism will cause many Judeo-Christian values to be left behind, leading the people into sin, from where the collapse of America, or the world, may come. Already, we see this happening with the legalizing of abortion and same-sex marriage. When society goes astray, it leads its people astray with it.
Well Nihilism is definitely capable of collapsing a country, and it is part of atheism so I guess you could say atheism could collapse america. But considering how stupidly general word atheism is, it would be highly overgeneralized to say atheism could collapse America. So to be specific Nihilist atheist could could collapse America.
This country will lose all morality and inevitably collapse.
I've noticed from profiles on this site that atheists are almost all pro abortion and gay marriage. If they get their way the whole world will be corrupt.
No morals = Bad law
Religion is simply a poison in this world. It had stunned growth technological growth as we have seen through history. Furthermore it is the antithesis for rational thinking. Once, someone is bound by the chain of religion and wilfully close their eyes to reason, then the chain will more than not, be forever engrained in the psyche. For USA, Europe, Asia, and the World in general, we must understand the importance of education and the value of asking questions. Thank you.
Im not against the population being majority religious at all so long as theres a complete seperation of church amd state (and issue we need to address) but im also equally ok eith ot beung majority athiest. uou personally can still believe whatever you want no matter what the majority is. Im sock of thiests and athiests treatung each other like the poison of society because of loud minorities on both sides.
Christian Dark Ages...Enough said.
Remember the destruction of pagan, burning of "witches" also known mostly as mentally ill humans, remember the slaughter of atheist during the middle ages all of these were religious acts
Unless by american society you mean the overly religious, fundamentalist society that restricts the freedoms of many people, then maybe yes. But then I would be glad if that society collapsed.
America is already collapsing because of Christianity.
Religious people claim that religion keeps peace, while millions and maybe even billions of people have died because of it.
This is why the US will not have a Republican President - they say that 20% of the country will lead to our collapse.
Religion has served it's purpose- it can easily be replaced by the vastly more useful science and a few simple moral lessons at school. Atheism is if anything a boon for America. Why do people seem to think Atheists can't have morals? They most certainly can, and why would religious people have morals and Atheists not? Are people seriously thinking that people wanting to go to the afterlife the reason anyone has morality? That's really sad.....
Atheism is just like any other religion (well, it's a lack of religion, but...). Just like people of other religions, only a few members go around bashing people for believing in things. I, as an atheist, am perfectly fine with and supportive of any religion. However, I am not supportive of those who use their religions to justify hate towards groups of people. Isn't religion supposed to be a helpful thing? Isn't it supposed to bring members of a religion together? Religion has created so many conflicts, and discrepancies between atheists and Christians or other religions should not be another conflict. We will not bring down America. Most of us love America. We only dislike those who bash Muslims for being Muslims, gays for being gays, transgender people for being transgender, etc. Homophobes, racists, transphobes, and haters will bring the downfall of anything unless love prevails. Always remember that our founding fathers wanted a separation of church and state.
Of course it won't lead to the collapse of America. We have freedom of religion in the country. Saying that atheism will destroy America is like saying any other religion will destroy America too. While people are going and saying that atheism will destroy America, why don't they go and blame the other religions as well? Atheism is a choice. In all honesty, atheism seems to be the only 'religion' that makes for fair decisions in America. If we made decisions based on one specific religion it would be unfair to those who don't believe in it. By making decisions that aren't based on a specific religion is is fair to everyone because no one religion wins over another. Atheism may be what keeps America going or years to come.
I agree with most of the no comments. Anyone, or almost anyone can get involved with Congregations and claim they Believers, Saved ect..There are those who mislead the True Believers for a variety of reasons. I was born into a Catholic Family, there was a lot of dysfunction in my oppinion. I was intimidated, my Mom was intimidated and we were both very Passive as a result of the Dominate Personalities..This is not the Culture I want for my daughters.
If anything, atheism is good. In the past, there have been wars dedicated to fighting their religion. People will murder other people just to defend their religion. I've never heard of an atheist doing that. Parents will kick their own child out because they are gay, atheist, or other reasons. I've never heard of an atheist doing that either.
Any person who thinks otherwise is a moron.
