“I respect everyone's right to believe whatever they want but to say that science can dictate what there is and is not in the afterlife is supercilious and arrogant. Its like saying "Nobody has ever been to the Andromeda galaxy but science says life can't be there so you know its true and anyone that thinks otherwise is a fool."
How can science define what's possible in the unknown? No disrespect to anyone but the idea that it can is stupid.
To go out on a limb and say "there is no A in B" even though its impossible to ever experience B and report back on the findings (unless you count NDEs which DO support the concept of a God) requires a GREAT deal of faith, even if its hidden behind empty arrogance. Man can barely tell whats at the bottom of the ocean but somehow we can dictate, as fact, that there is no God? Lol yeah, ok. Whatever you say.”

“Science says what is observable. There might be invisible dragons playing soccer on the moon, but we don't need to pretend to respect the notion.
You don't understand what science even actually says.”

“"Everything in the infinitely complex universe popped into existence from a literal absolute nothing for absolutely no special reason at all, created its own self-governing laws for which there was no prior basis and made a series of astronomical coincidences happen allowing life to begin from random molecules being stirred together in some water and then these random molecules gained consciousness, started walking around and a while later, *POOF, here we are." Makes total sense.
Say what you want, atheism takes faith just like believing in a creator, to say otherwise is hypocritical at best, because at the end of the day, NOBODY knows for sure what comes after the big tapout.”

“That everything popped into existence is what religious people believe, especially the "POOF" part where people appear. As an atheist I don't insist that there is no god, only that I don't believe you. People who make the assertion that a god exists are logically bound to show something to back that claim. Something more than, "Well, it must be that". Humans hate "I don't know", so we demand answers even if we have to make them up.”

“Project much? Next time you want to speak, try to do so about a topic you know at least a little bit about.”

“Nonsense. It takes no more faith to be an atheist than to not believe in fairies.
You completely misstate and misunderstand a scientific view of the universe.”
