How exactly such so called deeper understanding would look like?

Thanks. But to be fair I'm not exactly looking for having discussions with theist outside of forums. There may be plenty of rational and worthwhile believers out there.

As for escaping I will be spending 6 or more months abroad so I think that I will endure other 6 in my bellowed homeland. Also I can left the country any time I choose and I will certainly do so when individual discrimination of atheist will be possibility. As it stand I can live here without being really bothered about my absence of faith.

Ps. Good exchange rate is another reason for staying.

the person in the thread went about pumping his fist for getting banned for attacking the beliefs of another person as if a hero who had accomplished something.

are all atheist such that they would celebrate that they have caused a christian to view them as pushy, insulting and childish? i would hope not. where are the rational and worthwhile atheists who actually are worth talking to?

as a christian who wants to debate, i would only celebrate if one of the parties comes to a deeper understanding, and we mutually learn something worthwhile, or at least one of the parties debating.

Last year, or was it the year before?, life flows so quickly these days, I registered with a christian web site. I declared myself as an atheist pretty quickly because I felt that it was the right, proper and honest thing to do. Why? I wanted to understand how they handled their cognitive dissonance, amongst other things. I wasn't 'pushy', I didn't swear and I wasn't impolite in any way, shape or form. My first encounter was pretty mild. However, I couldn't believe or understand what illogical tripe was uttered. I started to 'argue', in the scientific sense, and ... was instantly banned without warning, without course for complaint and without the possibility of the ban ever being lifted. Not only that, it appears that my details were sent to every christian forum on the net because can I register with any other christian forum on the planet? Nope. I understand that this is common practice.

I join atheist forums. Even though they are painted as being ungodly and evil, all can register and post, including theists, and few are banned. In fact, one has to be pretty extreme to be banned. Being a theist isn't extreme, btw. It's illogical, yes but extreme? Nope.

It appears that theists are tolerated, and even welcomed, on atheist forums but atheists are banned from theist forums.

Says it all, doesn't it?

When you know the Truth you don't want people saying it's bullshit. Hence the banning.

Certainty breeds intolerance.

The are probably off trying to deal with their cognitive dissonance cause by all of this tolerance by supposedly intolerant atheists. Laugh out load
