Intolerant atheists are every bit as bad as religious fundamentalists.


Couldn't agree more.

People like Greer, actually preach their gospel far more than the religions they're attacking. I can honesly tell you i've never heard of a christian saying "if somebody didn't say they would pray for my dying son, i'd punch their teeth out"


The irony in their hypocrisy might almost be funny if it were not to the lengths some carry it out....such as defacing century old public buildings because they mention "God" etc.

The atheist movement has become am cult or religion in and of itself..... prosthelytizing their beliefs (many a wordsmith among their ranks will try to explain away that paradox). Trying to "shove it down others throats", I believe it was put itt.


it's not a new affliction either. just a different conceit of superiority complex. i feel sorry for everyone involved. see, now i'm doing it too.
it's simple. just be nice.

Exactly.

In any belief system, one should have an open mind to the beliefs of others. Hell, the other day I was discussing religion with Christians and Hindus, and I was quite stunned when one of them said "did you meet your great grandmother?" to which I said no, and she then followed up with "then how do you know she was real?"

Aside from that glitch of intolerance, we had a great discussion and they respected my choice to not believe (based on my own choices) yet we could still all engage and share the particulars of our beliefs. it was a really good conversation, and I love discussing it with Hindus as their stories are really interesting.

Commuting to NYC for several years I had a daily dose of Presbyterians, End of The World Christians, Hispanic Pentecostals, Jews for Jesus, and random people asking me to pray with them. I have yet to see an atheist solicit me.

I've never heard a Christian say that, but I have heard them say a vast multitude of people are going to experience an eternity of unimaginable pain and horror much worse than getting their teeth punched in.

No and here is why:

I play Battlefield 3, GTA, and a number of violent games, If someone needed shot or otherwise harmed, I am prone to violence and would gladly give someone a can of whoop ass

But key term, if they NEEDED it, if I personally believe violence can solve issues and I play violent games, and I would never do anything like this, I think that proves video games have nothing to do with it.

The answer is so easy its not even funny: People are messed up in the head, nothing more nothing less. Regardless of games, movies, or good/bad parenting, some people are simply evil because they are evil, no explanation is needed...

Would would an atheist say? "welcome brother, come join us in not believing in anything" It makes no sense, so of course there are more fundamentalists in other beliefs.
I believe in Jesus Christ, the exclamation.........

Yes.

As much as a connection exists between eating broccoli and mass shootings.

No matter the object, it comes down to the person making the decision to do any act.

They reason and use logic (that might not be what most of us consider as such but they use how they reason) when deciding on what action to take.

Having spent many years reading a multitude of different books that would turn heads, playing video games with large amounts of violence and gore, watching gore hound movies, using firearms/weapons from small arms up to TOW missiles and mortars (and everything in between) I have never once felt the need to go into a school or public place and open fire in any country I've visited.

I have enough common sense, education and natural intelligence to insult the ideal concepts of what it means to be a human being.

That doesn't make those kinds of atheists any less intolerant and ignorant than the fundamentalist you just described.

Not all, but most, atheists are just as blind, uneducated and intolerant when it comes to the topic of discussion and the material being discussed.

This is coming from an agnostic though as atheism is just as illogical as a fundamentalist standpoint.
If history is to change, let it change. If the world is to be destroyed, so be it. If my fate is to die, I must simply laugh.

Fifty years ago, you could buy or order a handgun/rifle/"assault weapon" practically anywhere, and not have to submit to a background check and there were no waiting periods, and people did not go around shooting up malls and elementary schools.

So what happened?

Guns are NOT the problem.

That's because they're too busy trying to make sure they tear down every spiritual institution they can.....I find your anecdote about "atheist solicitation" disingenuous at best as I would bet there isn't a major city in this country that doesn't have billboards featuring atheist messages, not to mention various social groups promoting those messages.

As far as people asking you to "pray" with them.....OMG HOW DARE THEY GENUINELY CARE.....

In the words of Mickey Goldmill (from Rocky II).....“ill pray wit ya.....whatz it gunna hoayt (hurt)?
