As atheism continues to spread into the deeper recesses of our civilization, and old joke about the willing heathens comes to mind.
“How can you tell if there is an atheist at your dinner party?”
“Don’t worry, they’ll tell you.”
Sure, that joke has been recycled a million times over to describe liberals, vegetarians, people who join fitness cults, and all manner of social justice “warriors”. That doesn’t mean that it isn’t true.
Atheism is truly little more than a fashion statement for the noncommittal, edgy millennial war on Christianity and other organized religions. It’s a badge of pride for those who wish to stir up emotional and provocative subjects at dinner parties full of otherwise jovial guests. In many ways, atheists love to both be the pink elephant in the room and call everyone’s attention to it. Atheists love to argue, and they love to get a reaction with their heretical views. They’re simply attention mongers in intellectuals’ clothing, pontificating to one another about obscure tomes from their nihilistic cadre of overly well-paid writers and ambassadors.
While many in the civilized world can easily see right through the atheist attitude, even withall of that eyeliner they tend to wear, a new study has revealed that there is scientifically less tolerance coming for the “No God” side of things…something that will truly irk the science worshiping twerps.
“The study, conducted by Dr. Filip Uzarevic, a researcher at the Catholic University of Louvain in Belgium, revealed that while atheists might consider themselves open-minded than religious folk, they are actually less tolerant of differing opinions.
“’The main message of the study is that closed-mindedness is not necessarily found only among the religious,’ Uzarevic told PsyPost.
“Uzarevic’s analysis determined that religious believers ‘seem to better perceive and integrate diverging perspectives.’ The study revealed, though, that the level of closed-mindedness depends on the issue at hand.
“’The nonreligious compared to the religious seemed to be less closed-minded when it came to explicitly measured certainty in one’s beliefs,’ he said. ‘However, and somewhat surprisingly, when it came to subtly-measured inclination to integrate views that were diverging and contrary to one’s own perspectives, it was the religious who showed more openness.’
“The paper, which explored whether atheists are ‘undogmatic,’ claims that nonbelievers measured lower than religious people in ‘self-reported dogmatism’ but were actually rated higher in ‘subtly-measured intolerance.’”
In some ways, this finding makes a lot of sense. If you belong to a group that is trying to buck 3,000 or so years of beautiful religious traditions with hundreds or thousands of denominations, you’re going to have to be fairly strict in your worldview.
Atheism needs ignorance to survive. There is far too much faith in the world for the atheist cult to truly comprehend and employ in their rendering of existence. If they truly studied every possibility of the unseen world before committing to the atheist worldview, there would be far fewer of them in existence, they wouldn’t all be somewhere between Generation X and the Millennials.
