  1. The point is not the number of gods in which a person does not believe. Otherwise, we would have to admit that the more new “gods” we will come up with, the closer we will make believers and atheists. It is important what a person believes and how in accordance with his faith lives. And I do not think that one “main” difference between these two groups can be distinguished, besides the one that they differ by definition. Some believe in God, others do not believe. Both among believers and atheists are very different people, some of whom are very similar, and some are the exact opposite.

  2. Each of the many religions occupies its niche in the history and culture of mankind. Personally, I believe that to deny other religions and consider them false is a great error. The believer does not have such a right. If in his fanaticism he imagined that God told him, this is his problem. The difference between an atheist and a religious person is that the believer seriously refers to religion. For him, this is not a game and not just a culture of the people, but the most important sphere of their personal, inner life.

  4. The believer is obliged to believe in God. On the example of Judaism – six main responsibilities of the believer. 1. Believe in the Almighty.
    2. Do not recognize other gods.
    3. Approve its unity.
    4. Love him.
    5. Break in front of him.
    6. Do not follow the heart or eyes, so as not to turn away (from the Almighty). Theist is obliged to reject the commandments of believers, in an accessible atheist .. either as the need to observe commandments, or as the content of commandments directly – to deny the existence of God as an acting force
    indicate the multiplicity of religions (encounter believers in religious conflicts)
    indicate the presence of polytheism in beliefs (to question the equivalent of divine abilities)
    reject God and God
    possess “critical thinking” – trusting the apparently and fabricated independently (succumbing to egocentrism and anthropocentrism) is not difficult to notice the difference. Autism always follows from theism, its duties include amenizing the theistic foundations .. This is usually done with the only goal – adaptation of theism to new realities , when changing the habitat, the spread of religion to other cultures, obsolescence of theistic dogma, if it is necessary to update the dogmatic foundations. Thus, atheism is the evolutionary mechanism of theism aimed at development and transformation … It is necessary to take into account that since theism is most often based on dogma , then it is very difficult to change it, and in order not to fall into excessive archaism, in a critical situation, theism gives rise to a certain number of atheists from its midst, which turning away from the basic commandments erode the weakest places of theistic theory .. After these blurry places are laid down with chopp the correction of the dogma and the fortification dilapidated ny theoretical constructions. … ..Itog .. Atheists differ from theists in that it is often the most active or most intellectual people who have the task of reforming obsolete dogmas, and inventing new ones .. And theists simply wait until they give them a new version of religion, new dogmas, and they will readily accept this as a new theism. As for the required number of atheists, then usually there are few of them .. A couple of hundred for the entire volume of culture .. But if the reformation of the foundations concerns precisely domestic, ritual and other mass aspects, then Huge masses of people can be enrolled in atheists, up to 80% of all believers .. because it is the ritual part that can only be changed by the mass order .. and in these cases, atheists, of course, do not “differ in mind and quick wit”, in fact these are the same believers, But which imposes a change in the ritual paradigm. … So Confucian atheism or “ancient Greek” manifested themselves as the allocation of a certain limited number of people of castle of religious ny foundations, and who gave the world new ideas .. But for example, the Soviet atheism or the cultural revolution in China is a change of rituality, where an ideology was created by a limited group of atheists, and only a change in the ritual was prescribed to the rest of the believers. Today, the process of changing the ritual of the replacement time was not finished yet. technological structure .. At the same time, one shift is superimposed on the other (technological to economic, and that to political, and that on social, etc.) .. Therefore, it is not possible to finally establish ritualism … Over the past 150 years, several generations of atheists have changed, And the believing-recipients who were once raised to change the foundations remain in a limited state. If the “atheist” repeats some mantra about critical thinking or freedom from God-pale or shows some similar signs of ritual behavior, then this is the atheist which is raised to change the ritual, and demonstrates a temporary “ritual plug”, which will easily refuse As soon as it is provided with the final product of the reformation of theistic dogma. If the “atheist” rejects theistic foundations, gives them up and breaks through the new ways, demonstrating real achievements – it is probably a real atheist that reforms theism for the formation of a sustainable theistic dogma of the future. If ” The believer “continues to adhere to the archaic version of Theism – then his task is to maintain the skill of God -faith, until the new theism is ready for development .. Usually this is the most self -sacrificial, strong and stable people who are not charging for newfounds, and give strength to the fact that already It will be obviously redefined in the near future.
