You just claimed to know what most atheists think!!

This atheist is beginning to think you are a theist posing as an atheist.
Consider

Well I'd suggest that atheist better do some looking around on this site before he/she runs their mouth.

A claim to know what most atheists think equals theist to you? Taq's never around to scream non sequitur when you need him.

You know what, dude? FUCK YOU.

Religion does real harm.

If you were an 11 year old girl who was the victim of genital mutilation, you would consider it "worth all the fuss." If you were a Jew in the 1940s you would consider it "worth all the fuss." If you got burned alive because your town thought you were a witch, you would consider it "worth all the fuss."

Don't you dare try to tell me shit like this doesn't still happen. Don't dare.

If you can seriously sit there behind your screen and be perfectly ok with literal, actual crimes against humanity then you're just a whiney ass hole who needs to get off the internet and go experience the real fucking world. Seriously. The only way you could possibly think that all atheists do is argue is if you're a social outcast who lives in your mom's basement.

Just go ahead and fucking leave for all I care. Don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out.

Did you even read this?:

Go back to your Xian website Black mason. Your crap wont work here.

Who the fuck are you? You come to my house and start talking shit about me you fucking newbie. You accuse me of having an agenda? Kim understood where I was coming from in this thread. She got an agenda too? You are a two bit fuck wad, bullshit motherfucker. You open you mouth about me and you don't even know me you cum guzzling dim wit.

How bout you stop acting like a hill billy incest loser and use the features to see my other contributions and threads that I've started. If you've got a problem with me give me a shout on PM because you're polluting me thread. Banjo, you are a specialist at failure. Please don't infect the good members of this community.

If you're gonna be the type of person that cries foul everytime the finger of scrutiny point your way, then you're a weak, spineless mistake. The day this site turns into a haven for atheistic confirmation bias will be the day I call it quits. Go practice your unexamined views at other places like Reddit. People like you are a dime a dozen in those places.

So you have set up a strawman in that every event you could be shown where religion does actual harm can be dismissed. Look if you don't want to lift a finger to improve the world then get out of the way of people who do.

Er, no bro I have not set up a strawman. Do you even know what a strawman is?

You come here throwing terms like strawman and I wonder if you actually understand the point of this thread. The actual people in religion aren't stupid, it's their beliefs that are. I feel that as atheists online a lot of us tend to play the man and not the real issue.

We people, are the same theist or otherwise. Is it possible to treat each other with mutual respect? As an atheist am I wrong for trying to probe this idea? Perhaps if we could respect each other we could communicate more effectively. We need more tolerance.

I was trying to show that the majority of theist are the same as us. It that a problem?

Perhaps through the tolerance I'm proposing, changing the world would be a lot easier don't you think? Swimming up stream is hard after all. Try to keep an open mind.

But maybe I'm the fool for questioning why we are "fighting".

You're stereotyping all atheists as having this attitude, yet I have never come across an atheist that thinks of theists as being any different than an atheist in their everyday life.
You didn't comprehend true scotman's charge - enough atheists harbour the sentiment, and display it behind the Christians backs, just like insecure racists.

Yeah, atheists are like racists. That is why atheists are the ones who would never get elected to public office if they admitted that they were atheist. That is why atheists get shunned by their religious families. That's why atheists are constantly being told by religious people that they lack any morals. Atheists can't discuss their beliefs openly because of all the hatred they get from religious people for admitting they are an atheist. Religious people claim to be about love and tolerance, yet so many of them label anybody that is not religious as evil. Yet, it's atheists that are like racists...yeah, sure. This is like saying that two Black people who are surrounded by a bunch of racist rednecks are the racists because they discuss among each other the way they are treated, but they don't go confronting the rednecks who vastly outnumber them. That makes a lot of sense.

Laugh out load And atheists that you agree with you are right, and there is no group hysteria among atheists - right?

When did I say that ALL atheists need to agree with me? The simple fact that I have an opinion means that everyone needs to agree with me? You certainly have your opinions. Is everyone that agrees with you right, and all others wrong? Hypocrisy at its finest.Laugh out load

WindyCityJazz Wrote:Well, if a person claims their particular religion to be true, then they are also claiming that all others are false. There is no in-between in that argument. Whether they state it implicitly doesn't matter, it's already implied.
And you claim that your way of running society is the only true way, or can you compromise? Why can't you write the ultimate compromise so we can live in peace and harmony?


Where did I say my way is the one true way? I don't give a shit whether somebody has religious beliefs. What I do care about is when they try to force those beliefs on the rest of society and distort scientific facts that don't fall in line with their particular beliefs. I love how you make that accusation at me, yet you constantly talk down to people who don't follow what you think they should. Gotta love the hypocrisy.

Write the ultimate compromise? Well, just about everybody already preaches that we're all equal. Isn't that what the ultimate compromise is supposed to be? The problem is, it doesn't matter how many people say they agree with it, it's what they do after saying it. If they say that everybody is created equal, then go spouting their beliefs that their religion is the one true religion and all others are wrong, then they're not practicing what they preach. If an agreement that we are all equals is not the compromise needed, then how about you take that task upon yourself, considering you constantly boast about how you are so much smarter than everyone on here? The way you accuse atheists of having an attitude of superiority, while you are constantly spouting your superiority is astoundingly hypocritical. In fact, you even claim to be an atheist yourself, yet you go around boasting about how you are smarter than everyone else, and then accuse atheists of acting as though they are superior. You are the shining definition of a hypocrite.

I suggest you lose the grumpiness, amigo Wink You ask for greater understanding, practise on those who disagree with you. Your phrasing and some of the stuff in this thread causes a lot of people's "undercover theist wanting to cause shit" meters to go on full alert. We're all mental patients too don't forget.
