My favourite quote from professor Richard Dawkins is not the one where he calls the God of the Old testament a “capriciously malevolent bully”, or any of those where he otherwise openly mocks religion.

It's one where he doesn't even mention religion at all, even though he's destroying its very foundations.

Destroy religion before religion destroys us all

I'm surprised by the number of atheists who say that we shouldn't even tell believers that there is no god, for fear of hurting their feelings and disrespecting their faith.

Well, screw your faith. I have absolutely zero respect for it, whatsoever.

And I have good reasons for it.

I get that a lot: “oh, you’re gay, you demand tolerance, but you told me that my god is a mythology and that’s soooo intolerant of you blah blah...”

Well, let me tell you how is sexual orientation different from believing in Santa Claus, and why tolerance has nothing to do with it.

The very first thing I’ve ever tattooed on my body is a symbol of atheism. It might sound stupid for some (“if you don’t believe in god, why do you care so much about the nonexistent?”), but it’s a really important thing for me. Let me tell you why.

Do atheists hate god?

I can’t count how many times I’ve been accused of “only being and atheist because I hate god!”. How the hell can I possibly hate something that I claim does not exists?

But no worries – if he existed, I’d hate him so much!

Islam is so ridiculous, so stupid and so cruel, that it’s quite hard to resist the urge to criticise it loudly and trenchantly.

But on the other hand, the way that the modern world sees Islam today turns the good thing of criticising a bad idea into a bad thing of hurting innocent victims of that idea.

Let me explain.

I’m a bit annoyed when somebody tries to convert me to their faith. Because although I know they probably do it for good reasons, wanting to give me a gift of eternal salvation and all that crap, from a perspective of a person that has spent (way too) much time getting to know religions of the world, the fact that god doesn’t exist is so obvious, and the absurdity of religions is so immense, that there’s no way back for me. It’s a waste of time to even look at it.

I have, however, found a way to spare myself all that conversional boredom. Ready?

Trochę mnie wkurza, gdy ktoś chce mnie nawracać. Bo wprawdzie wiem, że to zapewne z dobrych pobudek, że chcą mi dać prezent w postaci życia wiecznego i w ogóle, ale z perspektywy człowieka, który spędził (zdecydowanie zbyt) wiele czasu na poznawaniu religii świata, fakt nieistnienia boga jest dla mnie tak oczywisty, a absurdalność religii tak wielka, że nie ma już dla mnie drogi powrotnej. Szkoda czasu nawet na patrzenie w jej stronę.

Znalazłem jednak sposób, by sobie tych nawracaniowych przynudzań oszczędzić. Gotowi?

Keep calm, because I don't care

From a scientific point of view, of course I care for the god hypothesis. Its existence and nature are facts about our universe that are definitely worth knowing. But since we have absolutely no hard evidence supporting the existence of any god, anything we say about it and its nature must be either an uneducated guess, or just shamelessly made up.

From my personal perspective, however, should I care about god at all? Would it change anything in my life? Would I become a better person, if I just started believing against all reason?

No one can prove god’s existence. When an atheist states this obvious fact, they will almost certainly hear the response “well, but you cannot prove he doesn’t exist, either!”.
