Atheism : why should we follow it

The world of spirituality is seeing a huge change. More and more people are giving serious thought about spirituality than ever before. With plenty of options available, they want to balance a material life with a spiritual life. Secondly, instead of adopting the family religion, they are using their right to pick and choose. Yet others are abandoning religion to choose atheism, or the belief that there is no God.

Atheism is getting more and more followers because religion doesn't seem to have all the answers in fact it seems to be one big source of problems for people who are looking for reasonable and logical answers.

Religion needs to go away and not be replaced by anything. Atheism is not a religion. It’s the absence of religion, and that’s a wonderful thing. Religion is not morality.

'if there’s no god, what would stop people from doing crimes like raping and killing everyone I want to?' My one answer to this question is : 'Behaving morally because of a hope of reward or a fear of punishment, is not morality. Morality is not bribery or threats. Religion is bribery and threats. Humans have morality. We don’t need religion.

Religion is often just a kind of tribalism: to have pride in a group one was born into, a group that is often believed to have God on its side. We don’t need to replace tribalism with anything other than love for all humanity. Let’s do that, okay?We should quit religion and be moral .

  1. Disagree. I find above view more of a passimistic one and I also adore all the festivals, celebrations and bounding power a religion have. More so for most of the (mostly less educated) people religion is the only way of life, otherwise they might become completely directionless. The morality is not that easy to come in humans. Remove land of law for 1 day and you will get to know the true morality of people.

    Yes, there is dire need of removing bad fishes from religion.

  4. Religions r d source of our greatest intolerance. Evn greatest den racism. People & countries r divided by religion. Wars all over d world. People r ignorant on d name of religoin, dey hate someone bcoz of their sexual orientation, race, religion or nationality.
    Women dont get equal rights under religion. Hinduism, Judaism, Islam, Christianity etc. Laws r not based on equality but dey r based on religion. Dey dont hv equality in marriages, divorce, child custody & inheritance.
    Religion is oppressive, divisive, homophobic. In evry religious war dey murdered ppl. Ironically, God remains d safest person :(
    So I believe in a common religion. Yes in Humanity & Love. Embrace knowledge nd a sprit of goodwill.
