Thread Name: BS: Reflections on Religion and Atheism
Subject: RE: BS: Reflections on Religion and Atheism
Yeah Joe. Like we need another religion thread either. Sorry but the title includes putting religion in the same basket as lack of religion. Blame Sailor boy, it helps keep a perspective.
When I saw this thread I dismissed it as BOHICA.
Putting belief and lack of belief in the same sentence and asking for a view is like asking restaurant goers for their view on diesel versus petrol cars. Sure, you would get views but a restaurant isn't the obvious place to conduct the survey, a car showroom would be more appropriate.
Lack of religion is not a stance or a decision. Some have made a decision but the majority of people here in The UK only utter the word Jesus when trapping their finger in a door. Proof of heritage but not of conscious affirmation.
