Atheism vs Christianity vs Satanism.

03 August 2012, 14:20

This is purely aimed at a special person who frequents this arena. Getting a bit tired of being atheists being called the same thing as Satanists, so I thought I would set the record straight a bit.

Now there is a lot of strange views on what atheism's merely the lack of any belief in a deity, purely because there is no proof. Dont argue about the big bang and evolution, because even if you manage to disprove these, we would still be atheists because you havent proven that any god exists. To put it a bit differently, if I were to make a claim of 2 + 2 = 5, then I would have to prove it before you believe it, it will be MY job as the one to claim it to prove it, not YOURS. But you claim god exists, therefore YOU must prove he does before we will believe. I hope that is clear, because clearer I cant get.

Now, back to bulk of this topic. I will be comapring the three I have mentioned in the topic and awarding points for each similarity. A full similarity, gets 1 point. A similarity where its sometimes true, will get 1/2 a point. So here goes.

Believes in a deity:

Christianity. Yes

Satanism. Yes/No (some do, some dont, depending on type of satanism)

Atheism. No

Believes in the devil:

Christianity: Yes

Satanism: Yes/No (Depends again on the type of satanism)

Atheism: No

Has a holy building:

Christianity: Yes

Satanism: Yes

Atheism: No.

Has a Bible:

Christiany: Yes

Satanism: Yes

Atheism: No

Has a dictated moral code:

Christianity: Yes

Satanism: Yes

Atheism: No

Believes in god:

Christianity: Yes

Satanism: Yes/No (Depending again on the type of satanism)

Atheism: No

Has religious ceremonies:

Christianity: Yes

Sataism: Yes

Atheists: No

Priests/Pastors/Reverends etc.:

Christianity: Yes

Satanism: Yes

Atheism: No

Belief in demons:

Christianity: Yes

Satanism: Yes/No (Depending again on the type of satanism)

Atheism: No

Registered religion:

Christianity: Yes

Satanism: Yes

Atheism: No

Belief in creation:

Christianity: Yes/No (some believe in evolution and the big bang, but its merely god's way of doing things)

Satanism: Yes/No (Depending again on the type of satanism)

Atheists: No

(This one is a full mark for Christianity, because both answers are the same).

So lets look at the scores.

Christianity: 9

Atheism: 2.5

So, using this we can clearly see that Christianity is a lot more related to Satanism than Atheism is. So please, in future refraim from saying we are the same, or even saying we are very similar. Yes there are similarities, but if you look carefully you can find similarities in almost anything...this article is proof of that.

I apologise for the insulting nature of this article, it was meant to prove a point, and the point wasnt that Christians are Satanists...that was never my intention.

Why I love Cambodia’s capital

There are so many reasons to hate Cambodia’s bite sized capital of Phnom Penh. Open sewers, naked children, piles of burning garbage on every street. Its a dirty, smelly, noisy amalgam. But Phnom Penh grows on you and by the time you leave it will occupy a special place in your heart. Read more...
