The Inane Beliefs of Atheists/Materialists

1. Climate Alarmism – why do Atheists/Materialists think they can recognize and understand true climate facts and extrapolate them into valid theories about the future of Earth’s climate? Do they not realize all of their mental processes have no top-down, supernatural control/override authority? They think whatever happenstance chemical interactions cause them to think, and believe whatever chance forces cause them to believe. Under such a paradigm, they believe what they do about the climate for exactly the same reason non-believers hold their non-alarmist views: chemical interactions have caused such beliefs. “Facts” and “truths” are nothing more than sensations that unintelligent, undirected physical processes cause us to attach to particular thoughts. They might eat some particular ingredient or smell something and a chaotic cascade change their mind about the climate. Why bother worrying about something one has no capacity to meaningfully understand in any significant way?
2. Globalism – why do A/M’s promote a global society? Do they expect to be able to coerce the enormously chaotic chemical interactions and physics that drive humanity into a particular, preferable pattern of behavior? I guess it makes sense that atheistic materialists who think a massively chaotic system like climate can be controlled into preferred future outcomes also think humanity can be homogenized into thought and behavior patterns to produce preferred global society outcomes. It makes sense because, under atheistic matieralism, A/M’s can be programmed by chemistry and physics to believe and say any inane nonsense whatsoever by chance physical interactions. In light of how happenstance chemical interactions generate beliefs and views and attach the sensation of “fact” or “truth” to them, how can any A/M hold that globalism would be any better in any way for humanity? They have no means by which to meaningfully reach such a conclusion.
3. Progressivism – Why do they advance and promote such concepts as “rights” for various subcategories of the human population, when surely they realize that no such rights exist under atheistic materialism – at least, they do not exist as anything other than feelings attached to thoughts. Under A/M, nobody possesses any “metaphysical” or “supernatural” or “natural” rights; they exist as physical sensations driven by happenstance chemical interactions. If these interactions happen to drive a person or a culture to kill or torture or enslave certain sub-groups, so what? That’s just nature at work, the ongoing drive of chemistry and physics. That’s just part of the evolutionary process. Since “rights” are just sensations, an abused group has no more claim to any “right” than their abusers, who have the sensation of a right to commit the abuse. A proclaimed “right” to “equality” or “healthcare” cannot be logically claimed by atheistic materialists to be superior to the “rights” of those who prefer inequality, or prefer not to provide healthcare or anything else some group wants.
