Nobody likes that stuff. I just figure most theists have no idea they are imposing and intruding on anyone's life. But I guarantee ... anyone who manipulates another person, knows exactly what they're doing.

Atheism is such a simple concept, why does it seem like it's very hard to understand though.

By the way ... when I say, 'deliberate mind fuck' ... I generally mean, religion. Shy

The bold man has no hair. We can say, what he has non-existent hair. The atheist comes to any theist, looks at his god. This god has following properties, according to theist: existent, loving, judging, omnipresent (or any properties the theist thinks of his god). Then, the procedure of atheism removes one single property from this list: existence. Remains: loving, judging, omnipresent, etc.
So, the atheists encompass all gods of theism-s, but removing the property of existence. So, one can finally conclude what atheism is: it is having the Nonexistent Loving God, so an atheist feels free today to love and tomorrow to reject love's existence. Am I right?

Every now and then a theist posts something so convoluted, distorted, nonsensical, obtuse, idiotic and garbled that I’m left thinking, “How does it feed itself?”
Am I right?

wut? No, just no. No Come here and let Girly give you a good deliberate mind fuck. ... lemme think ... Kim ... already experienced*, check ... UPS driver in like fucking godforsaken Kansas so used to spending most of her life alone in confined metal spaces for long periods of time getting from point to point, check ... trippy dippy hippie chick, check ...

Girly's DeliberateMindFuck™ for Kim would be a nice full body massage from a Thai lady boy with a happy ending, followed by a nice big fat billy and a light tonic of freshly squeezed cucumber vodka water with a touch of soda and 4-way windowpane and 10 hours floating in an isolation tank listening to Ravel's Bolero. ... And maybe some Angel Dust after she comes out and dries off just to fully embed and imprint the experience. ... I'm thinking I might be able to make some money doing this. Smile

I I know the intention was not so subtle, but I'm allowing myself to enjoy the humor of the choice of username.
So sciency and Truthy!
And this Verity thing, who knew?
Look at all the time and grief that could have saved.
