Imagine that. Deceitful atheists. Must be rare, like extremist, murderous atheists. Nah, just kidding, liars are everywhere and not isolated to atheists, just like murderers evidently.

You are a fucktard.

Yeah anyone can say it. The trick is being honest while saying it.

I am completely honest when I say it.

There is no evidence for any gods and there is quite a lot of evidence for religions being venial, manipulative, and manipulated. Religions cause more harm than good.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Not to mention that this thread is like a call to arms for more extremists.

Hypocritical much?

What? Extremist truth tellers? Extremist skeptics? Extremist educators? Extremist humanists?

I fail to see your point.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

I can honestly say that all religions are straight bullshit. If I'm an extremist for calling out unsupported woo then so be it.

Davis Silverman said this: "Some … people call me a (jerk) because I challenge the absurd notion that religion deserves respect by default. But religion is wrong for demanding respect simply for being, and even more wrong for demanding never to be questioned. Indeed, it is my duty as an American, as an atheist, and as a nice person to do what I can to take religion down — not by force, not by law, but by truth.”

And that truth, he writes, is simple: “all religions are lies, and all believers are victims.”

I believe that the human race will never survive religion.
Sorry. No one can honestly say that all religion is a lie.

Violent extremists are not only religious. Remember like a month ago. Violent extremist are actually a very small, very confused minority. Pinning all extremist mass murders and terror acts in the religious in general is being deceitful.

RE: Is it time for you to become Anti-theist?
It takes all of us to make a change. Just look at the history of gay rights.

It takes the radical folks making lots of noise, so that a conversation is started.

It takes launching legal challenges, so that atheist rights are implemented.

It takes the quiet ones, like uncle Joe, to come out. The more people "know someone" who is an atheist and is "actually a nice person", the faster society changes.

That is what worked for gays, and that is what is starting to work for us. We have the noise and the conversation, we have the legal challenges, and what we need a lot of is people coming out of the closet. Everyone knows one or more atheists already, but the atheists remain closeted.

That is why I like this place so much, people gain confidence here and many have come out after joining here.

Psychologists call this "projection".

You've got this delusion - and you're CONVINCED that everyone else believes it too.

Sorry - not the case.

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.
