This video contains some insane things I’ve heard. You can see how the ridiculousness of these double standards and assumptions glare when I arrange them side by side. Whatever trait you blame on atheism or attribute to religion, I can point to an abundance of examples to the contrary — and the excuses are usually quite laughable and transparent.
Amazing how that works, isn’t it?
DarkMatter2525 ends the video with the tidy phrase: “People are both good and bad, whether they believe in a god or not.” So true.
Unfortunately, I’m sure you all can point out many more examples of outright hypocrisy than the ones mentioned in the video…
