RE: Judging people
I should stop, this is clearly just me trolling this individual. But seriously, if you can't effectively communicate anything you are trying to say and you take offense to any reply given to you, then you are a troll (even if unintentionally so).

RE: Judging people
I think it's an oriental language. Couldn't swear by it though.

RE: Judging people
I get the feeling it is a mix of teen-speak that has been infused with middle eastern.

This has given me a lot of food for thought.

1. Can one go through life without ever judging anyone?
2. Are there times when judging someone is positive?
3. Are we as atheists prone to be less judgmental?
4. any other thoughts?

I would love to hear what others think about this.

Going back to OP, I've been pondering this for a few days now.

Can a person go through life without judging another? Probably not. I think it happens. Does that mean all judgments are harsh? Not at all.

I tend to look at the whole person (online in a forum it's admittedly hard -- but I can search past posts) so I do tend to be forgiving of people who I think, "oh my that was harsh." because I can look at the larger picture and might just prefer to assume someone is having a bad day -- because yes I can't see them.

I don't know if it is an atheist thing -- or if it's just the way I'm wired.

Lately I've been doing a lot of reexaminations of why I disbelieve the existence of god.

I re-examine that disbelief daily. Doubt is natural.

I used to deny it, but I really think I became an atheist because deep down I hated god. I'm conflicted about that. Since I always have maintained I came to atheism based on rational thought processes. Now I feel those thoughts were tainted.

Consider Interesting. So you feel that your emotions may have played a role in your rationale for not believing? Have you since tried to come at the question from an objective and emotionless viewpoint?

RE: Judging people
I suppose my question is exactly what you meant when you say you question it now, kind of redundant in that case.

Yes! And I can't separate it -- the two are completely entwined and I can't untangle them.
