I have learnt more from the few rude people who have challenged my intellectual complacency than all of my immensely civil teachers combined.  I think I’ll commission a new T-shirt to commemorate

Rude and Proud!

Make sure the shirt says Atheist as well, so people will understand, and know that they should avoid communication with you at all costs.

OK, ‘rude and proud non-believer’.  Call me what you will, but by my definition an atheist is required to state there is no god as a matter of belief or faith.  Since I neither believe, nor have evidence for or against a god, non-believer is a better fit. 

So to attempt to label me as an atheist fundamentalist, as you do further down this thread, is futile as that would require me to have a faith I do not possess.  That said I am convinced the concept of gods, as perceived by the faiths to which the majority of people subscribe, do not exist. Probably a too subtle of a distinction for you and I couldn’t be bothered explaining it to an idiot anyway.

But last time I checked, no one in this forum has threatened to commit an ‘honour killing’(Did you mean honor killing?).

I distinctly remember something you considered to be threat to your life, you whined about it several times in several different areas.  I considered it a humorous image of shit for brains dribbling down a wall.  I have reconsidered my position and, were it to occur, the act of throwing you against the wall would meet my definition of an honour killing - with or without a u.

So do you also propose to throw me against a wall, like Salt Creek has, or are you simply pretending to be an atheist fundamentalist?

I already have in my minds eye.

And how does thinking in this violent manner make you feel?  Like an Islamic Jihadist, perhaps?

IS,

I, for what it is worth, appreciate your sentiments.  As one of the token theists I have been the recipient of many such statements!  I assumed that might be the case when I came here however.

I chose to visit this and the Dawkins forum just to see what kind of motivation lay behind the so-called angry atheist movement. 

I have found that those who would classify themselves as atheists make up a truly heterogenous sample!  It would seem that the only constant would be a disdain for religion and its influences.  Many here do seem to want to replace religion with a rationalism or reasonism of sorts.  Your arguments would fit well into such a scheme, in which everyone would try to work together to achieve a better, safter, kinder world.

For some such a utopian society constitutes a silly pipedream.  For these, religion is to be lampooned, often harshly, for no other reason than what it is.  No kinder, gentler society is envisioned - rather just a society headed toward extinction.  In such a scheme one might as well enjoy the ride down, calling it only as he/she sees fit.  In this model you are likely to be considered only slightly less deluded than us theists!  And therefore you would also be the recipient of f bombs and other niceties!

Just my 2 cents.

An immediate request to immediate suppression:


Go fuck yourself.

Why do you feel it necessary to respond to a polite request with such a rude response?

For once, I agree with IS.

A lot of us aren’t particularly fond of niceties either and will call things the way the way we see them without softening the commentary. A prick is a prick, an idiot an idiot and a fuckwit a fuckwit.

So by that measure, if Sam Harris himself came on here and voiced his opinions about mysticism, spirituality, death, and consciousness, which many of you obviously have strong disagreements with, it would be justifiable to treat him with disrespect, and call him those types of names?

Yes. It’s called free speech.

Oh dear.
Grampa doesn’t approve.

I know you Dennis.
You don’t fool me with your apocryphal nice-guy routine.

Your elephantine ego and your attempts to squirt a bit of rancid piss on every post here to mark your turf are so obvious, so pathetic and so very unbecoming for someone your age.

Please spare me your sanctimonious horse-shit remarks and go watch the wheel of fortune or whatever it is that cranky old fucks do when they are not busy drooling over a perfectly decent discussion forum.
