Atheism is no more a religion than bald is a hair color. Of
course, if you actually understood that, you probably wouldn't be
When atheists insist that they are right and everyone else is wrong
(without actually KNOWING otherwise) and that people must be pushed
astoeing the atheist line, then they are fundy religionists just as bad

Another lie, atheist don't insist that you are any one else accept
their disbelief, we only resist the attempts at people like you that
try to force people to live according to your hateful beliefs.
Actually, some do....at least they spend so much effort dissing my
beliefs that I cannot help but think they want theirs to be mandatory.
is only defending their freedom from the rules of religion.
And, for the record, I don't care what people believe, as long as they
don't try to force their fantasies on me. So if you think anyone "like
me" has tried to force you to live according to some "hateful belief"
then you're badly mistaken.
I do not come into these echoes to proselytize so much as to attack the100%
heresy of creationism. I can understand why you object to creationism.
It's crap pseudoscience that people are trying to impose politically in
the name of God. But you should understand that it isn't only you
atheists who detest it. It's also crap theology being imposed
politically in the name of God, and I, for one, do not want it in or

of a thread this will tell you who the cross poster really is.
And, by attacking ME, you guys are just giving support to one of the
fundy lies about evolution, which is that evolution is merely atheist
doctrine wrapped up as science. Of course you and I both know that is a
lie, but the fundies keep spreading it around among their target
You come across like the fundies. Fortunately they are a minority

them. It might slow them down.
