Thread Name: BS: 'Militant Atheism' is a propaganda term
Subject: RE: BS: Strident atheism not a religion
Whatever, haven't we had enough of this shit lately .. but it is your right to keep the threads coming if you so wish ... But I bet I speak for more than a few when I say ... There is enough shit on mudcat and we don't need anymore shit flinging"
I bet you speak for quite a few people. Religious bullies are very good about shutting people up when they don't agree with them but they reserve the right to express their views freely.
The more insults that religious people give to atheists, the larger the atheist movement grows worldwide.
The reason that atheism has suddenly become strident is this very reaction of intolerance.
i don't even like the word "atheist" that much because it doesn't describe the level of non-belief. I'm not an "aunicornist" or and "aSantaclausist" or an "atoothfairiest" but I am fairly certain that there is no evidence for any god reserving the small percentage that I possibly could be wrong. With religious bullies, there is no uncertainty whatever.
The only reason that I keep this going is that my intelligence has been insulted by the idea that my non-belief is a religion. Why should I respect anyone's religious ideas when my own ideas are not respected but reviled?
