It helps to start with a clean slate. Shale we continue?

Guess I can chalk this up to a learning experience. Well, time for me to hit the bed. Rock on.

It has a steeper angle of repose than I imagined.

There is so much pressure on me to produce good puns that I'm blueschist in the face.

I think there's something far more enchanting, far more awe inspiring to life than stars and a thousand universes could ever be, something that strikes me with wonder at just the thought, than can encapsulate an endless amount of dreams, and art and poetry, that doesn't exist in the cold and objective world in front of it, but in the intimate world we live. One that centers around communion, and friendship, love, and solidarity, and hope. There is a far greater awe in that lived and intimate life of man, than any that you can likely ever offer me.

Wow. Holy shit, dude. I go out for a bike ride and grab some chow, and come back to this shit? I haven't even read the rest of the thread yet, so I hope someone else already addressed this, but just in case I'm gonna stop NOW and address it:

What in the hell makes you think I, we, don't have "communion, and friendship, love, and solidarity, and hope" in the atheist world?

The best people I know, with very few exceptions, have been atheists. The communities we build, when we can find one another (since we are, sadly, still largely in the closet--in heavily-religious communities--or just don't think our atheism is relevant to mention in everyday conversation), are magnificent. I had a great group, back in Kansas, which is still going strong, and of which one of the other TTA members here is still a member in real life. I'm still friends and in communication with people I knew in atheist groups in college and in places I lived after graduation. They remain people whom I admire and respect and enjoy.

The astounding... no, staggering... arrogance of your statement, made as though we atheists focus only on the universe but lack the things you apparently feel are unique to the religious communities, rather than inherent to the human condition, is simply appalling. You should be ashamed of yourself for even thinking it. I can be both awestruck at the vastness of the universe and able to love my friends and family and community.

And even if none of this were true, even if atheism was still a life of loneliness, spent staring up at the stars, it is still not a reason to embrace religious dogma, simply to "fit in" with other delusional persons. Something is wrong with you if you think otherwise.

Not to mention anything we do is out of sincerity rather than a commandment to do so . . .
