Atheism in a Nutshell

Category: Poetry/Lyrics

You live.
You die.
You decay.
That’s it.
That’s all.
That’s ok.

  • You’re here and then
    You go away.

    That’s really all there is to say!

  • Theistic Pessimism: 

    God exists but he’s a dunce
    And only lets you live once. 

    Same result as atheism, but just one extra god!

  • And then of course there’s Eternal Recurrence
    Popularized by Nietzsche
    In which there is no God
    And everything just repeatzee.

  • thoughtless poem, and hence thoughtless responses also. atheism is refusing to accept the long-held belief in God. it’s a gross distortion to make it sound like a position on life, particularly afterlife. it’s just like defining Darwinian evolution as “man arose out of monkey”.

  • an -ism is an -ism is an -ism
    Without -isms there could be no schisms.
    To believe in what there’s not
    Is the same as believing in what we’ve got,
    Which(if you can believe it!)is: There IS no God!!!
    Or (if you can’t believe it!): There ISN’T!

    It’s true, there’s no necessary connection between believing in a god and believing in an afterlife, but most people who decide that (a)God doesn’t exist tend to give up in disgust. What if they all had to come over to my house and watch cartoons for eternity?

  • Prometheus, the only thoughtless response in this thread is yours. Sounds like you studied religion and philosophy from a 3rd grade Sparks Notes book. THOU SHALL NOT THINK OR MOCK UNLESS IT SAYS SO IN THIS BOOK! Nihilism and sarcasm have long been a keen retort to philosophical diatribe. To refer to a response that is a lighthearted take on a lighthearted look at what too many theologists consider as a serious affront to their theism’s seems like a fanatic throwing a stone at a violator of their religion. Relax. People can look at things with their tongue in their cheek without evil intent. Life is oppressive in many ways, and people often more so. Some people fight this with violence or their own attempt at oppression. Others cope with humor. It keeps them sane, and is far more civilized than the alternative. My way or the highway, you’re with me or against me, you’re not thinking if you don’t agree with me, that is for the George Bush’s and Sith Lords.
