            You're explaining the cognitive dissonance that our atheists friends face. They want to be free of God's "evil morality", but then are afraid to waste away in their own human morality. Like an edgy teenager that wants to rebel against their parent, but still do 85% of what their parents say anyways. So they'll "run away" for a weekend with a backpack full of ham sandwiches, before returning home with their tail tucked behind their back.

            Simply put: God is not appreciated until man turns to himself.

        Christcucks and Mudslimes take him more seriously than any atheist even though he stopped being relevant a decade ago, atheists don't bring him up here.
        This is because christcucks are used to seeings idols and priests everywhere they go. So they subconsciously start viewing people like dawkins as authority figures and pretending the people btfo'ing them also care about him as much as they do.
        It's why they also call atheism a religion that will definitely go extinct in 2 more weeks despite it always emerging regularly from religious societies and families. Theism is the bubble they live in and they'll never contextualize the world any other way. There's a reason the most zealous theists are inbred browns or pajeets.

      The only reason they hate Abrahamic faiths (yes all the major ones) is sexual matters. It's always because they aren't allowed to indulge in their homosexual troon fantasies or have their wives have premarital sex with bulls. Then only after they start worshiping their desires over God do they look to feminism and commie ideologies to fill in the moral gaps their rebelliousness lead them to and that is when you see them develop justifications for leaving that are independent of themselves. For those of them that find no satisfaction in a life devoid of spirituality they will turn to memes like western Buddhism, Larpaganism or become Satanists/Wicca.

            This is compatible with what we would call "moral behavior" being explained by biology, rather than God.

            Is he actually claiming that though? Imo the most reasonable take is that certain preconditions for our likes and dislikes are hardwired (like empathy, aesthetic sense, jealousy or sense of rhythm), but where exactly those preconditions take you depends on other factors.

I think that there are certain drives which lead to different outcomes depending on environment, culture, upbringing, life experience etc. In this sense, being hardwired for empathy doesn't mean you'll always act empathically towards everyone just like being hardwired to have an aesthetic sense doesn't mean you'll dedicate your life to producing art.

    Atheist olive branches to Christianity began when people started thinking the west was on the path to becoming majority Islamic. It was purely done out of fear because they know atheism can never survive under Islam.

      When I prevent a kid from running out into traffic. Do you think I'm doing something I don't want to do?
      It's perfectly consistent to have my own interests align with those of other people Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't.

    It's because they got the incredible strategy of instead of showing their points normally, they would show their arguments in the most obnoxious and irritant way possible to, just wait, the majority of population. Of course no one will agree with "israelite on the stick and if you don't go with me you are dumb". There is a strange thing where when your main strategy is being rage-baity, people will get used to it, and then you have to be more outrageous to get the same results, and more, and more, so it get to the point no one will take you with good faith. Other atheists got out of the group and the one who stayed got more and more annoying to the point of now being associated with reddit behavior.

      Atheism isn't really a part of pop culture anymore precisely because it won. Edgy nu-atheism could only be maintained in a culture where being an atheist still carries a social stigma.

      Nu-atheism ended with elevatorgate and culture wars
      Some of them joined atheism+ and turned into the first SJWs
      The other part became anti-SJWs; after realizing what they unleashed (And that Christians are their allies in a sense) they started hating christians less

    I went to a lutheran church today for the first time in a decade (not counting funerals). I was the only one there under 40. Atheism successfully killed God for the young.

    If athiesm loses it'll be because powerful classes become genuinely shocked and afraid of how bad people behave without religious social structure
    I genuinely think this can happen but it's maybe 20 years away, and those 20 years will be BAD years

    A big part of this is a lot of right wing atheists are LARPing as religious now for the aesthetics. 10 years ago this phenomenon didn’t exist back when libertarianism was more popular.

    As atheist, I wouldn't care if everyone else in the turned into a christian tho. I'll have fun with my special privileges (such as jerking off), while people waste their time schizoing about their imaginary friends. Wouldn't make much difference.

    >>G-God isn't real....b-but I will concede morally to 95% of the things he said....
    Their argument is that morals are based on psychological phenomena, and there's an innate bias toward the acts that we generally consider to be morally "good", thus those acts are perceived as "good". It's not great for your tribe if you murder one another all the time afterall. God doesn't really factor into it. This post is just a poor strawman, bait for (You)s. I'm not even an atheist and I understand what they're saying.
