Don't shove your beliefs in people faces. Let them believe what they want to. Goes for atheists as well.
YOU'RE ON A FUCKING DISCUSSION FORUM. You came here to post your opinions about stuff and to read other people's opinions about stuff. There's no getting in anyone's face.
All these threads get started by either a disgruntled Christian who got their arse handed to them in a real life debate by someone with actual knowledge about stuff rather than a floaty idea about something or other that they can't really explain, and come here to sound off, or an angry atheist who has lost patience with the glassy-eyed, willful stupidity of the religionists in their life.
Either way, many people are passionate about the subject and no one is getting in anyone's face. If you don't like reading other people's opinions, joining a forum is about as intelligent as thinking that the darkest, blackest African and the pastiest, red-haired Irishman come from the same great-x1000-grandparents (unless any Adam and Eve believers want to bring genetic mutation into it, which you really fucking don't).
lol. Another flash of your intelligence once again you only prove me right as to how ignorant you are. Atheism is the "belief" in no God. It can easily be classified as a way of thinking, or maintaining moral, or ethical structure without having to rely on any obvious "God" having religion. Get a hold of yourself, you're giving Atheist a really bad name. You are more of the reason the "op" started this thread. It's because of ignorant people like you who are giving Atheists all over the world a bad name. Go have tea, and crumpets, and take your ignorance elsewhere.
You can twist words this way and that, but the subject matter revolves around the belief or not in a God. Believe in God, you're a theist. No belief in God, you're an atheist.
Atheism = no belief, therefore atheism is not a belief. It is the absence of a particular belief. It is a reaction, not an action. Theism is the action.
Theism is belief. Atheism is not. The word and meaning are directly related to the lack of belief of a God.
Twist the words all you want, but it's a waste of time.
"Hurr I'm an Atheist and that person is religious in some way. Instantly I feel the need to tell them they're wrong with no proof other than saying they have no proof."
and I'm not even religious.
How many atheists do you actually know? I guarantee you it is a thousand times more than you think.
Just because a few make a big, ugly noise, doesn't mean that a large percentage of them are making that same noise.
The vast, vast majority of atheists don't say a fucking word to anyone about the fact that they know the big invisible dude who lives in the sky doesn't exist.
