Best Note From Atheist To Theists EVER
Can we seriously get this pinned up on the front of the forum page somehow? It's an absolute perfect message to all the whiny creationist trolls that we get here. They come here to preach their crap, try to make bogus scientific claims, tell us we're evil because we're atheists, blah, blah, blah...then turn around and cry foul like whiny little brats because atheists call them out on their bullshit. They know they are coming to atheist territory, yet they feel that they should be able to come here and preach their crap and not have their bullshit and hypocrisy pointed out to them. Maybe this would help them understand?

I suppose it's a little more polite than having Taq as a bouncer. But would it be as effective?

We have enough youth. How about looking for the Fountain of Smart?

RE: Best Note From Atheist To Theists EVER
Ever wonder why there's so many evangelists and missionaries who sit beside you on the bus trying to convert you, or knock on your door and try to convert you but there never seems to be atheists trying to de-convert people?

Why do these religious people care so much about converting people? Are they that scared of their god that they decide to attempt to save as many people from him as possible by converting them?

Why do they care so much? Why don't atheists care so much that we knock on people's doors trying to tell them it's all bogus? Maybe us atheists/agnostics/freethinkers do care but we have a more polite way of communicating to people like putting up bill boards and not encroaching on people's personal property... Can anyone tell me why that is? Jeez, some people... Facepalm

Everyday is judgement day. Use your judgement, use reason.

Because (nearly all) religion is a business. The "system" gets the workers to get more converts so the business has more power and makes more money. It's free advertising.

I think it has to do with the fact that they NEED to constantly be immersed in their religious fallacies in order for them to believe in it. They can't see god, can't touch god, can't give empirical evidence for god, but they can *feel* god. Just like a drug user, they are getting a kind of high from an increased release of the 'feel-good' hormones. And, just like a drug user, reaching that high requires more and more of the 'drug.'

I once had a theist define faith as believing in something without any evidence. I had never actually heard a theist define it that way, and after thinking about it, it made sense of why they constantly preach and proselytize.

Convincing yourself of a green sky when your eyes tell you it's blue would take some serious self-brain washing.

Can't speak for all religions, I'm pretty sure this is basically it for Christianity and all it's little sections. Except, it's not god they're saving you from, it's Satan. God just created the place and allows it to continue existing. God's innocent in this. Repent or BURN SINNER! Evil_monster

Not sure if it's the best, but pretty damn good. I'm stealing it.

That's exactly how I see it. I see religion as a diseased meme, but in terms of churches it's a business competing for market share. There's real money to be made in it as well.

This is such crap.

First off, what the hell is "hostile territory"? So are we fighting a bloody war with theists now are we? You act like the person disagreeing with you is violating your "rights", which someone how gives you the right to punch that person in the face. To make it even more idiotic, you then claim the internet is your "home" which it clearly isn't. That theists have "no right" to disagree with you, which is bullshit. Basically, that entire picture is filled with irony.

Sounds just like the usual stuck-up-their-own-ass atheists, who think they are sooooo important because they don't believe in something.

I think the point that the person who made the poster was making was that theists can't come to places like atheist blogs/websites/forums preaching about how their religion is right and everyone needs to follow their beliefs, then turn around and get all upset when atheists point out all the ridiculous, evil crap condoned by their religion, and then accuse the atheists as being full of hate. The "home" they referred to was their specific atheist website, not the entire internet in general. Certainly, if atheists started going to their websites posting negative stuff about their religion and saying that those people need to give up religion and become atheists, then those religious people would be screaming bloody murder about it. That is the whole point: theists can't go on atheist websites preaching their beliefs, then act all butt hurt when atheists defend themselves.

It's like somebody going to an NAACP website and getting all pissed off that they got flamed for saying that the U.S. needs to go back to segregation, and that African-Americans, or anybody else with dark skin, should be treated as second-class citizens - or going to a gay rights website and bitching that they got flamed for saying that gays don't deserve equal rights because it goes against the Bible.
