know what the ilumanti actually is?they existed back in the dark ages, when science was punished by the law. the iluminati were a set of scientists that would practice science in secret. the the church people, those who were going for science were atheists, there fore against god, so they associated them with the devil.know what the ilumanti actually is? by Solbyliet
the iluminati disappeared a long time a go, since science is legal now. it;s been legal and promoted for a LONG time.
they weren't "evil" or "devil worshipers" they were just scientists that formed a group to practice science. and they are gone now. the thing disbanded a long time ago.

Are atheists and scientists really closeminded?One of the common retort of believers of various unsupported claims is that science or atheists are close minded and should open their mind. I would like to demonstrate that it’s actually the opposite.Are atheists and scientists really closeminded? by frooxius
“You need to open your mind to other things”, “Science just blinds you to all the other possibilities” or “You need to have open mind in order to accept god” are some of the things you can hear from many people who are proponents of various religious or supernatural ideas when countered with questioning or rejection of their claims.
They attempt to stick “close-minded” label on people who don't believe in what they do without sufficient evidence and claim that rationality and science close people’s eyes to all the other stuff that’s out there.
But is it really the case? Does science make you blind? Is being rational, logical and seeking for evidence really closing your mind? I say no and I would like to exp
The definition of an atheist is simply a person who does not believe in a god (or gods), but this usually mean that we are a minority and have a worldview different from the one of most other people. In some cases an atheist need to hide his/her lack of belief to avoid conflicts. For other atheists it might not affect life at all.
Atheism is not necessarily something you chose by yourself. Some has tried to find god but simply failed. Some lost god along the road. Others has just never given it a thought, or they just never felt any presence of anything like a god. Some are just not sure if god exist or not (agnosticism).
Atheism is by definition not a particular way of living, nor a religion or philosophy, it is simply a response to theism, an absence of belief. An atheist can still believe in supernatural phenomena, be a buddist, be superstitious, or none of the above. That's all.
