Welcome, though I disagree with you. If you stick around I think you will find that atheists are not necessarily overly offended by theists.

Kinda like deity/no deity BOTH being "faith" positions misrepresents atheism ?
THAT horrible representation ?

Never heard of that. Ever. There are none here.
I do know of some fashion theists tho. They like red and purple dresses.

That would be a refreshing change ... in general we know far more about religion than the theists who drop in, thinking they are gonna "educate" us. You have an advanced degree in the field ?

A little about me. I am a Catholic Christian, so let's get that out of the way right up front.

There was a time in my life that I was atheist. Religious belief and expression made no sense. And then one day, atheism was no longer reasonable to me. So that's my story.

The reason i am here is that I think religious belief is horribly represented in these types of discussions sometimes, and I think I can offer a different perspective. I also think atheism can be horribly represented by those who have not actually "considered" and "contemplated", but because atheism is "cool" and goes with that latest Goth phase one finds themselves in.

I'm not interested in discussing atheism and faith with "fashion atheists".

A theist walks into a forum offering a "different perspective" stop me if you heard this one before........

Protip- interpretations, word games and general apologism will not get any respect here.

So I may particpate, but I'm only respected if I am irrelevant. What kind of echo-chamber is this then?

Um, perhaps they meant 'I reverent'? Consider

Or 'Impertinent'? Consider

Or 'Impudent'? Consider

Dude, you just showed a considerable degree of contempt for the forum you are on, knowingly or unwittingly idk hopefully unwittingly. Good luck with your mission take advantage of the freedom this atheist site affords you the likes of which you will never find on any one of the heavily censored christian web forums, surely that should be a huge red flag to you.
