They are incapable because OUR morality isn't based on anything and therefor we are being tricked by Satan. Since it's Satan's logic we are using they refuse to even listen.


That is why they are incapable of seeing our side.

How many times do we have to go through this shit? Can creationists simply not accept the fact that atheism is nothing more than not believing in deities? It's like just because their religion has stances on other issues, then atheism also must have the same thing.

"What is the atheist stance on gay marriage?"
"What is the atheist stance on murder?"
And, of course, everybody's favorite: "What is the atheist view on cannibalism?"

Really, what the fuck is so hard to understand about somebody simply not believing in deities?

I figure it's simple why they can't or wont accept that atheism is a descriptor for one thing alone.

They typically hold their religious beliefs as though they were the core core of their being. Atheists represent something foreign in such a view, so they attempt to do one of two-odd things; try to marginalise them by attempting to apply as many antithetical beliefs as possible (like the big-name creationists do) or they try to figure out the foreign entity by asking questions.

Of course, that's a simplification, but it's what I figure is probably what's going on.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

Well... The Q were recently tempted to ask...

Why are 95% of the threads/initial posts in this subforum of Atheism and Theism knocks on Christianity?

...But perhaps that is too much of a generalization for you. Smile

Of course, note that I am making a statement, not asking you a question!

I'm told atheists on forums like TTA are bitter and angry. If you are not, your posts to me will be respectful, insightful and thoughtful. Prove me wrong by your adherence to decent behavior.

Because 95% of the posters of this board live in countries where the majority religion is Christianity and it is embedded in the cultures they live in... what you say is close to being true, it's easily explainable too

Because we're not stupid. We've seen what ISIS is capable of! No

Remember, just because you want something to be true, doesn't make it true. Yes, even if you have faith.

So, what, you've finally deced to drop the schtick referring to yourself in third person only to replace it with this? Referring to yourself in the third person past tense in pleural?


...

Fuckin' whackos, man.

Religious people frame their world view based on the teachings of their particular religion. I guess they figure atheist do the same. Considering we do not have a structure with leaders telling us what to think we have a lot more freedom to make up our own mind. Think about where they are coming from. Being ex-religious I can see how they think that way.
