Well, let me tell you a story: When I was in highschool some upperclassmen atheists decided to bring a bible to school, shred it up, and eat it with chips and salsa. Tell me again how atheists don’t do stupid stuff because of religion.
1) I don’t believe your stupid story
2) Even if it were true, so the fuck what? Someone ate a book and you’ve got some crybaby problem with it? Call me back when someone flies a plane into a building because they were convinced atheism wanted them to.
3) The book-eaters in your story didn’t act out of religious belief, they acted, seemingly, out of aggression, hunger and pure coolness. No, but seriously, there’s no part of atheism that says one ought to use your digestive system to demonstrate a point. However, there is a part of Christianity that says, if god asks you to murder your own child you fucking do it. There’s a story about it in the Bible and there are frequent cases of people murdering their children and then claiming to have heard the voice of their Christian god asking them to. How is a Christian to know the difference between a spiritual communication from god and a schizophrenic delusion? No one ever tells the schizophrenic his suspicion that he’s being abducted by aliens is real, but there are entire tax-free, babysitting, unduly-trusted institutions set up to tell him angels and devils and gods are real.
You know why you never heard the voice of god come and ask you to kill someone? Because you’re not schizophrenic. If someone told you that happened to them, you’d think they were schizophrenic. Why do you accept it when it’s a Bible story? Because deep in the suppressed part of your mind, you know it’s not true.
