Yes I agree. Not all atheists know what they are talking about, but the percentage that do seems to be much higher that the percentage of theists who know what they are talking about.

That last site posted by Fr0d0 is proof that some theists are vengeful, lying, hypocritical, unthinking idiots. It is not a fun site. I would never agree with anyone so low as the owner of that site.

Well, Atheist is a lot easier to say... I agree, but something more catchy would be a better idea.

RE: Rationalists = Atheists, time to officially name change
The word 'atheist' still carries the stigma of 'Satan worshipper' to a lot of people, and I'm just wondering if changing the label would shed some of the misconceptions.

After all if you say you're an atheist, most people have heard all they need to hear. But if you say you're a Rationalist, then people need clarification and you are allowed a chance to specify your beliefs.

RE: Rationalists = Atheists, time to officially name change
I am both. I am an atheist and I am a rationalist. I will declare one or the other depending on the circumstances of anytime it comes up. Every one else decides for themselves because I am not dogmatic, or should I say "adogmatic."
