If you are a Christian it seems there is only one brand of Atheist; if you're an Atheist it seems there is only one brand of Christian. Each position is oversimplified.
Most Christians will consider me an Atheist. But I'm not, really. It's just that my vision of the nature, power and form of God is greatly different from theirs. Still, to me the teaching of The Bible are irrelevant and that's where Christians - at least most of them - draw the line.
So for purposes of discussion I align myself with the Atheists, but then as soon as the Atheists argue for the nonexistence of God I find myself in disagreement again.
Once in a while someone will throw a rock at me around here, but not often and not a very large rock. I don't mind. Sticks and stones, and all that, you know..........
Atheists set themselves up for an impossible task in claiming their beliefs are 'Scientific,' since there is and inescapable 'Proof of a negative' logic flaw in any argument for their position. "Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence."
What I don't get is that to a true atheist, a religious symbol would have no meaning--it would be just a stone or piece of carved wood. A true atheist hiking on public land should not be bothered by a 50-year-old symbol of someone else's belief because to a non-believer it's just a piece of wood representing another culture or belief system.
Also, their legal attacks on religious symbols are obviously designed to be a dickish annoyance. If you know anything about architecture, most public buildings are covered with religious symbols. The buildings themselves are symbols of a Western culture belief system. Should we tear down every spire or gothic arch? Should we go through every publicly funded museum and remove religious paintings? The atheists who go on these crusades are just being dicks. If they really believed what they say, a Nativity Scene would just be quaint representation of some other culture, like a totem pole.
Notice they never go after totem poles or the star of David on a publicly funded Holocaust remembrance., just Christian symbols. Dicks.
They're welcome as long as you're willing to totally ignore whole sections of the bible that that don't square with your Libtard beliefs.however those with religious faith are welcome.
They are welcome here. They are intergral parts of this forum. However...where they differ from Libtard mouth breathers like you...is that they don't go around wearing their disbelief in God in their sleeve or use it as a political statement...despite the Liberal meme you folks repeat ad nauseum.There are some more hardcore people that think religion should be destroyed however, that is only a small amount. So how are atheists treated here? Are they welcomed or shunned by the community?
