You mean the truth that JC was just like this guy only two thousand years earlier and not as grumpy? Wink

I don't find theists repulsive. I'm married to one.

A bumper sticker I once read.

"We need more religious fruits, and less religious nuts."

If people are honestly open to discussion, and to come to a mutual understanding all are welcome. But when you get douche's like this guy it's obvious he has intention of a real discussion.

Many of the atheists here didn't wake up one day and arrive at the conclusion that god's don't exist. Many including myself took the long road, of questioning our beliefs, and what we knew of reality.

But hopefully threw this guy you can see some of the shit we put up with. Why so many choose to stay in the closet.

Meh. Not all theists. Most are quite lovely people, present company included.

That gods do not exist outside of fiction?

Personally I liked the gods in Homer. They were fun.

It would have been fun in Rome at a festival for Bacchus.

Yeah...but when I first came on TTA, nobody knew me from Adam. Everyone probably assumed I was just another religious nut job troll with a personal agenda. Which is why i felt like it was somewhat hostile. If this is what atheist here on this forum and out in the world have to deal with then I completely understand why so many people confronted me with a raised guard. It's just wrong on so many levels for people to wave the banner of Christianity and act in such a manner.

"Guarded" often comes across as hostile.

This guy is an extreme but, to use a very broad brush, Christians are certain that they have THE TRUTH™ and that we atheists are actively trying to oppose them apparently in order to thwart god's plan and pave the way for satan to rule the world. I'm not saying they always think that consciously but at some level that sort of idea is operating. It colors their behavior towards atheists; sometimes very overtly and sometimes much more subtly.

I don't see how anybody can firmly believe that there is a personal god with whom they have a relationship without thinking that anybody who doesn't believe that is true has something seriously wrong with them. How far they place that on the scale from "mistaken" to "evil" determines how they treat atheists.

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