Apparently, Amazon has forums as well as a large assortment of cheap shit. Apparently in said forums is an Atheist section. Said Atheist section is run by power hungry theists who get offended by someone offering so much as slightly critical point of view or opinion regarding religion. On an Atheist forum... Said Nazi mods have been banning people left right and centre, good Atheist citizens, without actually giving much of a reason. When people are banned all presence of them on the forum is removed, so posts, threads, everything. So, seeing how green our grass is they've all exodus-ed over to us to avoid tyrannical theistical prosecution.

> I was banned for posting the following, which Amazon moderators believe violates the spirit of an atheist forum and violates their guidelines:

"The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully." (Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion)

> Go figure! Dodgy

Quoting an atheist author on an atheist forum for discussing atheist literature.

Seriously Gwaithmir, what were you thinking!? Shocking

Edit to add: I think I found the answer to my question about collapsing, but I will test it in my own introduction thread to avoid further OT material here. Shy

No need to be shy. This is a forum for atheists -- we encourage questioning.

[collapsed] is automatic when you quote a long post so you don't have to do anything to use it. If a reader clicks on the [collapsed] section it will be expanded.

Atheism: it's not just for communists any more!

Welcome!


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Hi, Mary. I was formerly SinSeeker. Just like Gandalf the Grey becoming Gandalf the White, I decided that the Mamazon Rapture was a good opportunity for a name change. Smile

Mand, Dorsie, Irish Lace, Dr. H and Klapaucius have jumped on the raft to safety. Who else is from Amazon? Are they closing down all the forums or just the atheist ones?

Welcome to any refugees who I haven't bumped into yet. Smile

Amazon has forums?

"In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it."
