Thread Name: BS: Militant atheism has become a religion
Subject: RE: BS: Militant atheism has become a religion
"There are those who react emotionally, passionately and take things personally. The preferred way to discuss in my opinion is to try to see the other's point-of-view and discuss that without insults, invectives or hurt feelings. Only then, can you have an adult conversation."

OK Stringsinger, It is my point of view that when you repeat things like

"God is a delusion", "
"Faith can be very very dangerous, and deliberately to implant it into the vulnerable mind of an innocent child is a grievous wrong."

you are insulting a group to which you know I belong, you know Dan belongs to that group as well, and therefor you are insulting me (and Dan)

In my opinion this whole thread has been about whether The new atheists and two people on this forum are being intentionally insulting when you say those things.

I refuse to have a conversation with you ABOUT RELIGION if you are in accord with those two statements. I believe they are childish, insulting and semantically wrong.

Those two statements are in my opinion, the foundation of fundamentalist atheism. They are Richard Dawkins' dogma and not moderate in any way.

My question to you is simple do you accept Dawkins' dogma or do you want as you put it "an adult conversation?"
