What was also hilarious was your comment about atheists and "atheism." (There really is no such thing as atheism, because it's not a belief set, it's the absence of belief.
Any amusement to be derived here would be your taking the "-ism" to be designating a system of belief / ideology rather than simply being part of the "-theism" appended to the prefix "a-" (not, non, without).
Also curious that you feel a need to react to and be covertly defensive about a word that supposedly has no significance for you ("No such thing as atheism..."). Similar to Sam Harris
at one time, a party of drunken Abrahamic guys might roast atheists all night, without it registering to me that I was among those intended to be the butt of the jokes. Hell, I'd probably toss in a one or two good ones myself. But I still wouldn't suggest that atheism is a fictional classification, devoid of any self-declared members.
Oh certainly there are some anti-theists who call themselves atheists, but atheists are under no obligation to assure truth in advertising.) Most threads about so-called "atheism" are started by theists or agnostics. There might be the occasional thread started by a newbie, but their authors usually turn out to be anti-theists, a particular subset of atheists (whom i find rather pathetic). We do have a thread about atheism started several years ago, the purpose of which was to discuss the experience of being an atheist in a theistic society. It got trashed pretty quickly by the theists and the agnostics.
So, according to you...There is no atheism. Yet there is somehow the "experience of being an atheist..." which apparently needs to be talked about in an existing atheism forum
. [Or I assume it is the same one which this "joker" is currently cross-posting to, whose threads you are doing such a fab job of ignoring / not contributing to.] And it was theists and agnostics who derailed this "experience of..." topic which atheists, who actually aren't such, were then disappointed about.
Why were they disappointed about the topic being disrupted, since it should have been rubbish, anyway, in the context of there being "no such thing as atheism"? Or are you instead implying that they were
elated about the theists and agnostics clobbering it up? (Kind of hard to tell...)
Talk about having a smug, little world view--you take the cake.
Don't be so modest. Anyone who can globally hijack a term so thoroughly that it now references a mythical position or status is certainly no one I would ever entertain being able to de-throne. You'll continue to hold that coveted "Smug Azzo" trophy for many competitions to come, buddy-boy. Count me as a fan in the audience.
