Plain humanism, from the simple need that comes from ALL societies and religions, where we have to be good to our fellow man to co-exist peacefully, and prosper.
Religion is just trying to explain things when science can't figure out, and thus religion is waning, since science is providing most of the answers. Humans used to think gods controlled lightning, thunder, weather, plant growth, and a whole bunch of other things. They couldn't explain it, so a "supreme being" or two was the explanation. Humanity is not a naive child, anymore. Most things have an explanation.
Calling everyone stupid? You're projecting.
Religious people are the most arrogant people, in general. They think that faith and religion can explain everything.
You don't get it. The punishing and wrathful God is creation of the west and Jews.
You still don't understand the meaning of Christianity.
The point isn't that HA BE GOOD OR I'LL BURN YOU, that's what the masses see.
A wise man would understand what to keep and what not from religion.
As I said some of its claims are just fairytale, some aren't.
And I'm telling you I'm not even a Christian, because these claims simply don't persuade me. I mean wtf, God is supposed to love us but he made us" disfanctional"?
No that's not my point at all.
All I'm trying to say is, even if there is not a god, even if we are just a random event of nature. Jesus teachings are the most humanitarian and noone can claim the opposite, the dude literally said if someone beats you then turn the other cheek. Real Christians are harmless and helpful to humanity and I sympathise them a lot (unfortunately they are very rare).
And no atheist aren't humanitarian,real atheists are just free. I know it from myself.
I was baptised orthodox Christian, but I never got persuaded. Even later after I grew up and I started asking myself what how why and who? Religion still didn't feel enough or even a real answer to me. But to most people it is and we have to respect it.
Now from my point of worldview, we indeed have no damn idea where we came from, why were here and where we are heading to.
And religions are just attempts by humans to guess those things. But they aren't persuasive simply because they are human made.
I'm sure that there must be something like a "supreme being" or something similar, because all these things around us including us didn't just pop up instantly (I mean what was before bing bang?What or who created this tiny ball that's suddenly decided it should be exploded? Tell me science?)
But no religion seems like a real thing to me.
But I also don't believe that we are just dust and sand which is thinking, because that doesn't make sense either.
I just know that we don't know shit.
Death might be enlightening on these questions but maybe not.
And until then, we should just have fun and don't waste our time in bullshit
