LOL! Playing with the judgit icons doesn't make you brilliant.
The judging icons seem to have some sort of authority for anti-atheist.

The definition was in the post he was replying to, so he hasn't had the chance to read it yet.

Of course. We all owe them a debt of gratitude. I meant something on a larger scale, a continuation and amplification of our 'Founding Fathers' vision. A society whose foundation is reason, equality and Justice-for-All. A place where intellectualism is not a sin, individual freedom is the underlying Mantra and the belief in a supernatural is relegated to the history books.
You have had thousands of years and yet you can only muster a very small segment of the population. All of you act like this is some kinda new movement that going to take over the world. You are old news

"Copy cats" just as repeating 2+2=4. No matter how many times you hear it or how sick you are of being reminded, it is still the truth.(That's truth, not "Truth." You might have to look it up.)
Hey, have you heard this one? "Atheism is a religion like not collecting stamps is a hobby." I can repeat it a couple hundred times for you and it will still be as true as 2+2=4.
"A system of religious veneration and devotion directed toward a particular figure or object."
Sounds like what Christians do, doesn't it? It's the definition for cult.

Yes, it's apparent that both of your brain cells are

Yeah. Your cradle-to-grave indoctrination works pretty good. Face it, nobody really wants the vast majority to be doing much Critical Thinking ... or regular old thinking for that matter. Bad for business.

If you look back, I think you'll see that the preceding post had shifted to the term
"nonbelievers," who make up a much larger percentage of the population than self-identified atheists do; 26% in the U.S. according to the most recent poll that I know of.

I would also like to note that the man made religions have been around for a very long time. Before man made the religion to answer the questions they could not answer, we used critical thought. What we are left with today are those religions that have survived the scientific era by changing their original ideals.

So technically we never had ANY time to convince these people they are simply just making a feel good story that they only partially follow. Every religion, if followed by the books, would result in wars against everyone else.
