Why can’t atheists, Jews, and Muslims get along?

Muslims hate Jews
Jews hate Muslims
Atheists hate Jews + Muslims (and basically all non-atheists)

Muslims have become the modern day scapegoat for all possible problems, an easy target, a well-hated group by many all across the world. Recently there has been a trend to follow the hateful ways of the atheists, in specifically hating Muslims. Initially I also followed the hateful ways of the atheists in hating Islam and Muslims, but upon investigating things independently on my own I decided to stop.

I have found based upon many of Muhammad’s teachings that it is quite easy to interpret Islam in a non-violent and non-terrorist way.

Muhammad himself had said:
“Verily my heart is veiled with melancholy and sadness for my followers and verily I ask pardon of God one hundred times daily.”

On violence Muhammad had said:
“The greatest enemies of God are those who have entered into Islam, and do acts of infidelity, and who without cause, shed the blood of man.”

“The shedding of blood will be the first matter about which judgment will be given on the Day of Resurrection.”

“He is not strong and powerful who throweth people down, but he is strong who witholdeth himself from anger.”

“That man is nearest to God, who pardoneth, when he had in his power him who would have injured him.”

“Do not say, that if the people do good to us, we will do good to them and if the people oppress us, we will oppress them but determine that if people do you good, you will do good to them and if they oppress you, you will not oppress them.”

“Whoever hath been given gentleness, hath been given a good portion in this world and the next”

On non-Muslims Muhammad had said:
“It was said to the Rasul, ‘O Messenger of God Curse the infidels.’ Muhammad said, ‘I am not sent for this nor was I sent but as mercy to mankind.’”

“Feed the hungry and visit a sick person, and free the captive, if he be unjustly confined. Assist any person oppressed, whether Muslim or non-Muslim.”

“He who helpeth his fellow-creature in the hour of need, and he who helpeth the oppressed, him will God help in the Day of Travail.”

“It is unworthy of a Muslim to injure people’s reputation it is unworthy to curse anyone and it is unworthy to abuse anyone and it is unworthy of a Muslim to talk vainly.”

“It is not worthy of a speaker of truth to curse people.”

“A Muslim who mixeth with people and putteth up with their inconveniences, is better than one who doth not mix with them, and bear with patience.”

“I am no more than a man, when I order you anything respecting religion, receive it and when I order you anything about the affairs of the world, then I am nothing more than a man.”

The rest of Muhammad’s teachings are just centered around doing good deeds and seeking knowledge:
“Deal gently with the people, and be not harsh cheer them and condemn them not. Ye will meet with many ‘people of the Book’ who will question thee, ‘what is the key to Heaven?’ Reply to them ‘to testify to the truth of God, and to do good work’”
“Do you love your Creator? Love your fellow-beings first”
“They will enter the Garden of Bliss who have a true, pure, and merciful heart”
“Who is the most favored of God? He from whom the greatest good cometh to His creatures”
“Adhere to truth, for truth leads to good deeds and good deeds leads him who does them to Paradise”
“Ye will not enter Paradise until ye have faith, and ye will not have faith until ye love one another”
“What is faith? When a good deed pleases you and an evil deed grieves you, you are a believer”
“Kindness is a mark of faith and whoever hath not kindness hath not faith.”
“Do not consider any act of kindness insignificant, even meeting your brother with a cheerful face.”
“Women are the twin halves of men”
“God enjoins you to treat women well, for they are your mothers, daughters, aunts”
“Whoever doeth good to women, it will be a curtain to him from hell-fire.”
“To gladden the heart of the weary, to remove the suffering of the afflicted, hath its own reward. In the day of trouble, the memory of the action cometh like a rush of the torrent, and taketh our burden away”
“’What is Islam’ someone asked. Muhammad said, ‘Purity of speech and charity.’”
“Every good act is charity.”
“A man cannot be a Muslim till his heart and tongue are so”
“He who believeth in one God and the Hereafter, let him speak what is good or remain silent.”
“Those who earn an honest living are the beloved of God.”
“True modesty is the source of all virtues.”
“Seek for my satisfaction in that of the poor and needy.”
“If anyone pursues a path in search of knowledge God will thereby make easy for him a path to paradise”
“He who leaveth home in search of knowledge, walketh in the path of God.”
“The acquisition of knowledge is a duty incumbent on every Muslim, male and female.”
“Seek knowledge from the cradle to the grave.”
“God hath not created anything better than Reason, or anything more perfect, or more beautiful than Reason the benefits which God giveth are on its account and understanding is by it, and God’s wrath is caused by disregard of it.”
“A man’s true wealth here after is the good he does in this world to his fellow man.”
“’Who is the best man’ Muhammad replied, ‘He is the best man whose life is long and whose actions are good.’”

We can see that Muhammad’s teachings can very easily be interpreted in a non-violent and non-terrorist way.

Muhammad’s teachings are just centered around doing good deeds and seeking knowledge, not around fighting or violence. I know there are some Muslims who don’t follow Muhammad’s teachings just as there are Christians who don’t follow Jesus’s teachings. The majority of Muslims accept these as authentic teachings from Muhammad and most of them fit in-line with the Qur’an.

There are many Muslims who do not wish to impose Sharia law upon the world, or commit violent acts, or follow old laws. Just as how most modern day Jews and Christians don’t follow many things in the Old Testament, there are many modern Muslims who do not wish to follow old laws. Hopefully these kind of Muslims who wish to follow more of Muhammad’s teachings will spread around in modern times.

Muhammad’s form of Islam is not about fighting or violence or condemning others, it is about being just, true, merciful, doing good deeds, and seeking knowledge.

In the end good people will interpret things in good ways and evil people will interpret things in evil ways.

We do not have to follow the terrible hateful ways of the atheists and terrorists who spend their entire life hating others, spreading hatred and animosity where ever they are.

Instead let us remember that it is always better to try to enjoy this moment than to live in hatred and agony.

    atheists and Jews get along fine, you can’t group atheists togeather because we are not a religion, we do not have an ideology, we just all think/know there is no god. Jews don’t preach their religion and are increasingly becoming atheist jews, which sounds funny, but for them (Jewish atheists) Judaism is more of a culture and a race, not a religion.

    Muslims hate Jews, Christians, and everyone who isn’t Muslim.
    Christians hate everyone who isn’t Christian, and they kinda hate Jews.
    Jews just want to live happy lives and aren’t preachy.
    Atheists just want to live happy lives and get preachy because Christians (in America) are everywhere and running everything, so we want our voices heard.

      Except that Larry Darby former state director of popular atheist group “American Atheists” is a holocaust denier.
      Tom Metzger founder of the Neo-Nazi group “White Aryan Resistance” is atheist.
      Alex Linder owner and operator of the anti-semitic White Nationalist forum VNN is atheist.

      Most non-Jewish atheists oppose Israel.

    If you say atheists hate all non-atheists, just remember you hate all non-theists.

    According to Wikipedia :

    Traditionally, most Jews, Christians and Muslims have embraced monogenism in the form that all modern humans ultimately are descended from a single mating pair, named Adam and Eve. In this context, polygenism described all alternative explanations for the origin of humankind that involved more than two individual “first people”. This definition of polygenism is still employed among some Creationists and within the Roman Catholic Church (see Humani Generis).

    With the development of the evolutionary paradigm of human origins, it has become widely recognized within the scientific community that at no point did there exist a single “first man” and a single “first woman” who constituted the first true humans and to whom all lineages of modern humans ultimately converge. If Adam and Eve ever existed as distinct historical persons, they were members of a much larger population of the same species.[5] However, a common scientific explanation of human origins asserts that the population directly ancestral to all modern humans remained united as a single population by constant gene flow. Therefore, on the level of the entire human population, this explanation of human origin is classified as monogenism. All modern humans share the same origin from this single ancestral population.

    Modern polygenists don’t accept either theological or scientific monogenism. They believe that the wide variation among human racial types cannot be accounted for by monogenism or by evolutionary processes occurring since the proposed recent African origin of modern humans. Polygenists reject the argument that human races must belong to a single species because they can interbreed. There are several polygenist hypotheses, including biblical creationist polygenism and polygenist evolution.

    The atheists hate whatever is related to religion teachings , but as science became monogenistic too…

    historically , atheism is linked to polygenism , so whoever is not white enough for them cannot be a true human being. Of course , they will not admit it openly because they know what it involves.

    This is ridiculous. I am an atheist, but I DO NOT HATE RELIGIOUS PEOPLE. On the contrary, when Fox goes on an anti-Muslim rampage, I’m among the first to contradict them and defend freedom of religion. I seriously admire religion, and I think it can be beautiful. I am envious of the ability to believe so completely in something we can never see or touch. I also have no arguments about the existence of God; he may or may not exist. My inability to practice religion does not have anything (or at least very little) to do with the existential part of it. I have merely never seen a reason to worship something just because it’s there. God has never done anything for me, religion has never helped me, and I’ve seen too much the duplicity of people to manage such devoted belief. Some of my best friends are religious; you are being bigoted.

    Just as religious people hate the sin and not the sinner, I hate the religion and not the fanatic being swallowed by it.

  7. anonymous / May 1 2012 3:14 pm

    Funny, because the deeply religious people I know are some of the most bigoted people I have ever spoke to.Their views are extraordinary! I found out they were told these views when the were young and naive, which makes perfect sense. How are atheists illogical exactly? What is possibly logical about religion? which its supposed events doesn’t rely on physics and scientific possibilities. Atheists don’t hate religion, they may poke fun and question it, but ultimately they don’t care what people believe. They don’t need it in their lives and their lives are just as good as those who abide by it.

    nice article a pity about the atheist trolling here….

    • J / Oct 1 2012 9:48 pm

      Atheist trolling? So now an atheist saying “I don’t hate people, don’t speak for me” is trolling? I’m guessing this article supports your views, so you’ll accept the claim no matter how bigoted it is.

  9. Nobull / Feb 6 2012 1:06 am

    I am atheist, how dare you suggest I hate anyone. Speak for yourself – and if you make such credulous assertions – back them up!

  10. Andrew / Feb 6 2012 12:28 am

    Atheists don’t hate anyone. This is where you’re having trouble – your opinion is not fact and to assume it is without any sort of reference or source backing you up you’re demonstrating you’re just another crackpot.

    I imagine theists hate athiests because we’re the first to legitimately question your grip on power. The emperor has no clothes, remember? We’re poking holes in your world view and you can’t handle it.

  11. Anonymous / Nov 20 2011 12:28 am

    No, I just hate you.

  12. maddy / Oct 30 2011 5:20 am

    I… I’m atheist, but I don’t hate religious people. In fact, I don’t particularly care what you believe, as long as you find it fulfilling.
