An apt illustration of what I have been pointing out here. Thanks.


Of course, I am British, so a lot of some Americans attitudes to religion or the lack of it seem mysterious to me, but I have met plenty of Americans whose atheism is like mine.

@contrex,
And your Buddhist hilltop?

Picking the farking daisies through your manhoods prime?

I was doing that with hardly any thought on purpose, so lust is not MY issue!

First they forcibly assert that the definition of "atheist" is only "person who doesn't believe in god" and therefore atheists have no doctrine or creed.


As I am certain others will point out, this is not a true statement. Not believing in God does not preclude believing in social causes or ideas about social issues. Being an atheist does not mean you don't care about anything, or anyone.

I agree with your position on allowing others to express their views, atheists only want the same right.

Of course they have every right to organize. I am just saying I find this type of "Atheist" rather annoying, particularly since they are misusing the term "atheist". They don't at all speak for the concerns of people who don't believe in god.


Then you are annoyed by a certain group of people. Fine. That's not necessarily all 'A' theists. I am annoyed by many Baptists, but I still love my wife, who is one. She only annoys me occasionally.

For what it's worth -- and I'm guessing it's not much -- this time I agree with you totally, max. I'm vastly amused by militant atheists who act as though they have to defend their non-faith and to proselytize it.


I don't care much for proselytizing in any form, so I agree with you. But, I think the militant atheists think that religion has caused may of the world's problems, not a hard position to support. They also don't like religion force fed to them, which is also prevalent, so I understand. I am not saying I take their position.

I don't think so. We are conditioned to the silent atheist. Like the days when a favored black adult was considered a "good boy." The minute atheists speak out we hear this militant atheist flap. When anybody else speaks out for something it is taken in stride.


Edgar, what you atheists go through at the hands of theists is like soft butter compared with an agnostic have to deal with from you atheists.

@Frank Apisa,
In your case, I think you are capable of doing better, else I would not have bothered with you.

Wow...that is exactly why I direct remarks to you. Despite considerable indication to the contrary, we apparently think alike! Wink

Hardly.

Some of the best posts are routinely thumbed down here.

But perhaps they thrive somewhere else, but how would any of us know it?

A real atheist might see man alone at this point and notice that supposing worlds others live in are perpetual and distinctly unchangeable.. Based on their slight wander through one forum, one day, or even.. One thread. IS.

Man disconnects from the facts to spew out the lies which suit.

Predominantly it is those who know slight about Atheists, who presume God is on their mind.
