So ive been an atheist now about...idk about 8-9 years i guess.


My family (Mum and dad are both catholic, my sister is kind of religious, my brothers arnt) didnt give a fuck about me being an atheist either, my choice and they respected it.

Latin Pantheon is thievery.

I have noticed that a lot of religions, erm, "Borrow" from each other. More specifically, indo-europeanism. A lot have an end time, a god with unlimited power that has and adversary for some reason, a dual afterlife, one for "Bad People" and one for "Good People"

That sounds more like the Abrahamic religions imho. Tho to be fair I’m not an expert in ‘pagan’ religions by any stretch, or even the Abrahamic ones either.
Most of the time I have no idea what the hell I'm doing or talking about.

Just to be clear, I’m not a professional ‘quote maker’. I’m just an atheist teenager who greatly values his intelligence and scientific fact over any silly fiction book written 3,500 years ago. This being said, I am open to any and all criticism.

‘In this moment, I am euphoric. Not because of any phony god’s blessing. But because, I am enlightened by my intelligence.’
Fun fact: the total insect biomass is estimated to decrease by 2.5% each year. If left unresolved, this could have catastrophic effects on ecosystems around the world.

That sounds more like the Abrahamic religions imho. Tho to be fair I’m not an expert in ‘pagan’ religions by any stretch, or even the Abrahamic ones either.

That's the point, Abhrahamic Religions took elements from both Fertile Crescent Paganism and Indo-European religions.

The Greeks, Celts, and Germanic/Norse have an end time, gods that hate each other, and "good and bad" afterlives I.E Valhalla and Hel. A lot of these elements mixed into Judaism and Christianity as it spread to Europe.

Have you tried asking your dad? He knows tools and cars and stuff, so he probably knows how to fix everything else.

Or just any dad, at that point. I'd bet they have like, a Walmart for dads, where you can just peruse and ask questions.
