    Dawes: Bruce. Deep down you may still be that same great kid you used to be. But it`s not who you are underneath, it`s what you do that defines you.

    True, but surely it`s only a minority of religious peeps that think all atheists must be terrible people and it takes faith for someone to be good.

    Let`s face it, whatever your views on religion, even to a staunch atheist like me...the sign is common sense, but the kind of person who this is aimed at is so entrenched in their fundamentnalist attitudes that a simple drating sign isn`t going to make them stop and`s just going to further entrench them.

    @Listypoos I agree with most of what you are saying except for the "minority" of religious people think that way. The majority of religious people I have known or just spoken with are under the delusion that just BECAUSE they are religious that makes them a better and more superior person. Morally and just in general. And that Atheists, just BECAUSE they are Atheists are automatically morally corrupt and the scum of the Earth. From my experience though it is usually they exact opposite of what they believe. I think this sign is very true and more religious people need to figure this out.

    The point of the sign is, religion very definitely doesn`t come into it.

    Baphxiii, I guess you`ve come into contact with more of the preachy kind of religious folk than i have then. Don`t get me wrong.. I hate that type, but even people I see as staunch Christians for example don`t go as far as to imply all atheists are morally corrupt.

    I do agree with your observation that most of my religious friends/associates/people I just know of, see themselves as superior in some way, but that is subtlety different than them thinking just because I`m an atheist I can`t do good actions.

    I do have a few friends though that insist on attributing my good actions to a god I don`t believe in influencing me in a way I can`t accept he can.

    but that is solely their interpretation on my motives... not mine.

    Like you say though... those people do exist - but not (generally) in my sphere of experience.

    You can be a good person by doing the same thing a bad person does.

    Imagine a future where you can change the past and you can observe the results. The first person goes back and kills Hitler. As a result, there is no WW2 ending exactly after throwing two nuclear bombs. But thebombs will be developed, and after each country has a lot of them, another world war happens - with unimaginable destructions around the world, much worse than WW2, nearly ending mankind except for some remote tribes.

    Person 2 goes back to just after Hitler was killed, disposes of the body and plays the role of Hitler. He will kill many, but he will prevent the ultimate nuclear holocaust.

    I have no problem with this sign, but you do know you can also be religious and be a good person as well! It does happen! I am sure what kind of religious folk a lot of IAB posters talk to but the vast majority I meet are not like they are normally portrayed here at all.
