I think the phrase I'm looking for is "dumb as ****". I'm like the first person who invented not believing in Santa claus. I actually laughed out loud.
But you did not answer anything I said, since it was so dumb...If we believed Santa existed...and you labeled yourself as the belief of No existence of Santa, rather than calling yourselves what you truly are...Free thinkers, doubters. Skeptics etc...it is no different, it just has a spin on it, but your main centralism still focuses on Santa, or no Santa....You should call yourselves what you are, if people misinterpret you, and you find it irritating...the person who did this originally here, was not saying it to be offensive...may I point that out again!! you decided to attack him for saying that...when it says more about your character, than about him being shallow...
Really, the way atheism is explained...it is no different than saying you have a religion or belief against God, rather than saying your free thinkers, skeptics etc...And if this is so utterly untrue, you would not see Atheist theology, at all...ever, for they would never be confused, and mixed up!!
That problem lies within your own classifications of yourself...not about other people being shallow!
I am calling a spade, a spade...
