Non-believer: You are a fucking retard. That is is the dumbest thing I have ever heard in my life, written by nitwits who had no fucking clue how the world worked. If you still believe that shit you need your head examined or I need to hit you with a hammer to knock some sense in you. Fucking nobhead!

I agree. Being married to a believer, it always bothers me when people call believers stupid or whatnot. When they do that, they are talking about someone I love very much. I also think that is a very dismissive thing to do and kind of implies that atheists are smarter. That is a perspective I just don't agree with. I really don't think that people who were indoctrinated as children before they could think for themselves are stupid. Deluded maybe but that is hardly their fault. I almost see a response like this as a non-believer's threat of hell.

NB: I don't believe in a god.
Xtian: Well then I guess you're going to hell.

To be fair though, many xtins would never say this although I suspect they really believe it. The believers that I interact would likely say that they don't know what will happen and the decision is not up to them or whatever. To me these responses are essentially the same tactic from a different perspective.

Yes, I'm wondering if it is more likely to come from American atheists particularly from the Bible belt because atheist are so repressed and abused there. Perhaps forums like this become a payback time thing??

That was my problem on other forums in the past. Now I let my thoughts be known in real life, and am (usually) much more polite online.

It's not conducive to a social life here in the Bible belt, but oh well. I got sick of hiding behind a smiling mask.

I do slip into ad homs sometimes. I return kindness for kindness, and rudeness for rudeness; I make change in the coin tendered.

I don't even know what that is. I suppose I should find out. But who has the time?

I checked and it is about getting jobs in Afghanistan???
