Title: What are your religious views?
Thread Modes
#15
I am a hardcore materialist atheist.

I grew up in an United Methodist Church, raised by a Lutheran mother and a poor, military father, found the internet and forums while running sound for the church, researched religious views on death (Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Jainism, etc.) for a paper, and through a total boredom with church life and church talk and church, I became atheist. Eventually, I filled in the reasons for staying with it, but now I just don't care to talk about it much anymore unless someone is being militant towards me with their views.

I even went through various experiences with meditation based faiths, like Buddhism, Hinduism, and Hare Krishna. It's all the same to me: laws, rules, precepts of obedience handed down through a hierarchy you can never truly climb up, that works off of guilt, shame, fear, or all of the above, to make sure you never even try to think about climbing the hierarchy. It's literally all the same. 

Becoming atheist has allowed me to fully grasp climate realities, technological, socioeconomic realities, and is a fundamental underlying pillar of my personal life philosophy, and general outlook. It also probably has destroyed a lot of positive things I was previously supported by. Becoming atheist also allowed me to open up to new ideological modes of thought, especially anarchist political thought.

In short, I am atheist because I don't want to live in a universe where a god exists.
