    It's called a counter argument.

    Yeshua said atheists are mentally ill, and I show her that's wrong because atheists are smart and take their sick kids to the hospital instead of praying

    Does it look like these seven states care?

    And the religious parents who aren't religious extremists take their kids to the hospital to Zombieguy.

    The above is called debating both sides of the debate instead of self pandering to your own rhetoric.

    Does it look like the atheists care about the religious parents who aren't religious extremists? 

    And lump in the religious parents with the religious extremists?

  • I am subscribed to the subreddit r/atheism. I have seen for myself how religion demeans people. I must first start off with this:

    1. Atheism, what is it? Answer: It is the LACK of belief in a god or gods. 
    2. Is Atheism bad? Answer: No, but some atheists ARE bad. 
    3. Should it be restricted? Answer: Of course not. Atheism does not promote violence, or idiocy of any kind. 

    Now for me to say this. Why isn't religion restricted? So believing in something without any evidence for its existence is NOT stupid? As I should quote from @Joeseph
    "Says a jackass who believes in talking serpents , a talking donkey called Balaam , a virgin birth , a zombie called Jesus who turns water into wine"

    So believing that animals are capable of communication with humans, a female can give birth WITHOUT her eggs being fertilized, and a human can have god-like superpowers, could convert water into wine is NOT a sign of mental Illness? Are you going to tell me that all those events (Excluding Historic events) actually happened? Not believing in Santa Claus is a sign of mental Illness? And is not believing in unicorns and fairies also a sign of a person having a mental Illness? 

    I believe you confuse the definition of "Mental Illness" and twist it in your way to make it sound proper. 
    Regardless, Atheism is good and it shouldn't be restricted in any way.

  • 1. Atheism, what is it? Answer: It is the LACK of belief in a god or gods. 

    Atheism is a disbelief in a God or Gods.

    If it is simply a lack of belief in a God or Gods, then atheists must believe that the existence of a God or Gods can be proven.  If one believes that nothing is known or can be known of the existence or nature of God, they they are agnostic, not atheistic.

    2. Atheism isn't necessarily bad, but anyone that will include Atheism in their worldview is philosophically really badly trained,
    3. But it inevitably leads to skepticism. Not the kind of skepticism of ''yeah bud, not believing in this theory yet'' but philosophical ''the only thing provable is that you think and therefore exist''

    >''Now for me to say this. Why isn't religion restricted? So believing in something without any evidence for its existence is NOT stupid?''

    Do you have a proof on the existence of logical absolutes?

  • Restricting belief in something is silly and pointless, but it stems from the common intolerance towards opinions one dislikes.

    Restricting LACK of belief in something, on the other hand, is a totalitarian view based on the idea of "everyone is a servant to one ideology". It is not restricting belief in something; it is restricting all beliefs in something but one. It is infinite times worse.

    The former is Bernie Sanders. The latter is Joseph Stalin. Both are vile and authoritarian, but the latter is still obviously much worse than the former.
