I patronize religious persons without an insight to why they need a belief and what this is as much as I want. As I patronize all other people I find pathetic.
about my personal experiences. I`ll say it again. Do I think every atheist thinks that every christian is an idiot? No. As a christian who doesn`t push, I don`t know what it`s like for an atheist being pushed. I try to show respect for atheist, but IN MY EXPERIENCE, I`m starting to realize that I can`t always expect the same respect in return. In which case, the respect I show sometimes slips, but I won`t apoligize for it.
Sure you could just say "big bang", but without precise knowledge of the details, isn`t that just as silly, so you say and/or insinuate, as saying that God created everything out of nothing. I mean, can you explain the origin of all life and the universe and have it make sense? Please try. If you can`t, how can you dismis the idea of a higher power so easily? It seems as if you just make speculations without any reason or evidence behind it, which doesn`t hold much weight.
To cheeseispunk,Thanks for proofreading my post for me. I`m sure that the teacher will definitely give me an A+ now because this is an English class and not a comments page on a silly little website. I`m sure if you read this post, you`ll find a typo or missplaced comma or two. But really, frivolous spell checks that give the illusion that you`re more intelligent than the person you`re debating (whatever helps you sleep at night) aside, like I said before, I was only talking
To gnazzah,As you being an atheist, tell me, what qualifies you to determine what a "bad christian" is exactly? Again, you are another case of a non-christian telling a christian how to follow christianity. And please don`t patronize me with your "invisible friend" comment. And as for your comment about the explanation of a divine being, I could just as easily turn the tables on you. Please explain to me the origins of all life and the universe. Sure you could just say "big bang", but without precise knowledge of the details, isn`t that just as silly as saying that God created every
To EisforPANTS,You are correct about no one being perfect. I am certainly not and I don`t try to be, but don`t make me think YOU`VE never said anything un-Christ-like. Unless you haven`t, don`t come to me with your "holier than thou" approach. I mean, it`s not like I killed someone. Plus, you`re not my mom.
To Taurus09179,You if read what I posted again, you`ll see that I said "in my experience". Do I think every atheist thinks every Christian is an idiot? No. But I have yet to MEET an atheist who didn`t think I was an idiot, regardless of whether or not I was pushing my religion, which as I said before, I don`t. In fact, in my earlier exchange with Enohead, I experienced the first real feeling of respect from an atheist. It`s kind of hard not to make generalizations about atheist when every atheist you`ve met makes generalizations about you. But I guess we could just point the finger back and forth all day huh?
Well, VONLINE, I myself am an athiest and I know many Christian people, some who push their religion, some who don`t. I understand why you as a Christian do not want people of other religions to think all Christians are big pushers.
By the same token, I, as an athiest, know that not all athiests see Christians as the biggest meanies. We don`t all lash out when poeple mention God. Please, I try not to pigeonhole other religions, please try not to pigeonhole my lack thereof.
Religion is historically a brilliant way of controlling people. An ancient way of government if you like. I mean, how could you find a better way to make unpopular decitions on all the people in your community? By claiming it is the will of the god(s) of course. But now we have more advanced forms of government, and do not really need religion. Except for the invicible friend beforementioned. It`s allways nice to have friends. Invicible or not.
However, in my book, you would really have a hard time trying to explain by reason how a devine being could exist. It really does not make any sence. But please try. It`s allways good fun.
all generalisations are false... ;) i`m atheist and my best friend`s a christian, i certainly don`t call her an idiot, we often have debates about religion, and we`ve both opened our minds to the other`s P.O.V
""And oh yea, I don`t care if queers get married.""
i`m glad to hear that, but the Bible does say `do not practice homosexuality`, so how come you can choose which bits of the Bible apply and which don`t?
Logic question here, why WOULD many have that mind set? Maybe because there are a lot who DO push it and have done so for a very VERY LONG time? Disrespecting other people`s non/beliefs and ability to live their lives as they see fit. Simply put, it is no different then any other minority that is sensitive to various topics because of history and present situation.
I don`t know of any NORMAL atheists that "become enraged and outcome all the "crazy" and "idiot" insults." Most average nonreligious person is likely to keep their mouth fairly closed on the subject, it is relatively few that are actually that outspoken. Except maybe online when some feel braver. ; )
And no, I`m not being sarcastic...
Thanks for catching me on that...I`ll try to not do that in the future ^^
And to ohgoodness-
I remember hearing an evolution theory about it raining down on ROCKS for a long long time, forming a primordial soup (i think?), so you can see where I get the whole rock thing from. I do admit I don`t have an extensive knowledge of evolution and it`s theories, so forgive me if I`m misinformed.
God must`ve made you stupid as a joke.
Yeah, because "Athiest" only means non-Christian.The article was about people in different countries who don`t believe in "a God."This includes Islamic countries.Does it hurt to be that stupid?
That`s all I hear from you people. Find new material for your Christian bashing. You`ve been saying the same thing for months. I use to get excited if a heated religious discussion was taking place. But, it was my mistake thinking it would be an intelligent discussion. Instead it is like talking to children on a playground. To the Christians, don`t even bother trying to persuade someone in a comment forum. I`ve tried and it`s a waste of time, especially the crowd on here.
that would be the chinse. It kinda pisses me off that veitname has no religion though..
were the true unrepresented minority :-P
ednesday, April 05, 2006 3:20:09 AMIt probably has something to do with Ikea and all the people not dying in car crashes- thanx to Volvo.(yeah i drive one too- it`s the seat heaters that won me)
i love seat warmers...but my car has seat coolers too. Ther great for those hot sumer days
Yeah! Atheism pride! :)
I`m Christian, but unlike some people I respect other`s opinions even if they are rude and thoughtless sometimes. That`s all I have to say.
Only 3 - 9% for the US? Ugh, frightful. I need to get out of this country!
Remember folks, this should be a place for entertainment and un-bored-ening...not a place to preach about your religion (or lack thereof)
"This is such a great link. I`ve been looking forever for a place to live where I don`t have to worry about the school system, etc. teaching my kids that "god" made man from clay and all that COMPLETE UTTER F*CKING NONSENSE. Sweden: here I come.The rest of you naive, weak, I`m-so-great-because-god-made-us-in-*his*-image retards stay here. Stay."^Public School systems really don`t teach about God and Religion, do they? Besides, they teach Evolution, and Evolutionists think we came from rocks, which is really no better than God making us from dust now is it?
Ever been there? The swedish part of my family happen to do very well for themselves and are definitely NOT scumbags or crooks you a**. Well the Atheism had to begin somewhere in the family.
but it`s not like Norway tho... it`s like Mordor over there!:-O
The rest of you naive, weak, I`m-so-great-because-god-made-us-in-*his*-image retards stay here. Stay.
i think they basically mean non religious people. I think...
They got hot chicks though.
Scuz: you forgot the Philips screwdriver, the ball bearing, the Bacho adjustable wrench and the modern aquatic propeller, to mention a few.
nnythereaper - why poor athiests???
Anyway, I love it here. We make the best music here. AND the worst, I might add.
a NOT burn? Wow, that one sure stays fresh for, like, 15 years...
And now for being the birth place of atheists.
You are valued. B-|
haha. how can anyone think god exists...HAHAHAHA stupid!
(im a swede)
but anywho.... MORE POWER & RECOGNITION TO SWEDEN! =P
