<quoted text> looks to me as if he had accepted a bribe. megamansions in heaven for asskissers. the one vulgar word I do find useful in describing folks who are so eager to tell their God how wonderful he is. it is like offering flattery as a bribe to get some goodie in return. infantile appeasement. I adore you so gimme. I really wish you were not so extreme and so vulgar. lots of times your comments are quite good. I also wish you were not so fond of false accusations. there is plenty enough that is true one can say in criticism of people! It is embarassing to have to sort of apologize for you to idiots, when you are too nasty to them or to false accusing, and it is not useful when people wise enough to be atheists are not excellent representatives of that view. not that there is anything in the definition of atheism that requires to thereby become a nice person.
If you ant to avoid vulgarity, you could try "sycophants."

So my point is Laveys satanist are atheists. That's all.
So why do you keep bringing it up?

I can make a point that all the 9-11 terrorists, without exception, were theists. That's all.

You would have to agree, right?

Yes because they were theists. But not all theists are terrorist and not all atheists are satanist.

You just ignore my question.Show some adult behavior and answer. Satnism has nothing to do with your definition of god. I answered your question.

Agreed.

So why do you keep bring up the LaVey santanists thing?

His persistence did have one effect--it finally stimulated my curiosity enough to lead me to the Wikipedia article o the subject, which is titles LaVeyan Satanism. It is indeed a form of atheism, and it reaffirms one useful concept: that atheism is far too diverse to be defined beyond the lack of belief in deities, As such it is a tacit admission that all characterizations of atheists beyond that are inherently flawed.

Many of the regulars on the atheist forum have come to feel a bond and to establish a few commonalities. It is useful to realize that neither are universal and that they may not extend much beyond this forum.

I have to admit many atheists are good people but a few on these threads are rude, childish, and immature. Yes granted i pushed a few buttons but it was for a reason. No hard feelings man but I just love to argue. Hey but not once did I push my religion or beliefs on anyone.

Here is what I have an issue with...
These followers of LaVey call themselves satanists. By definition, they are incorrect. By definition, satanists are people who worship satan. The fact that they have persistantly used the name satanist, does not make them true satanists. They have simply continued to use that name, and folks have accepted it. In that capacity, they could insist on calling themselves catholics. I suppose that if they did it long enough, people might eventually accept they as "LaVey Catholics". It wouldn't really make them catholic by definition would it? They are not a form of atheists. Atheist simply means a lack of belief in a god. If a group of atheists get together and arrange flowers, they are not a "certain type of atheist", they are a group of people who are atheist, and happen to arrage flowers.

The fact is, you love to push buttons. That makes you a troll. I had to laugh when I saw your comment about some folks being "rude, childish, and immature". You should include yourself in that description. It certainly seems that you are not interested in rational debate, but rather you are determined to piss people off.

You know you are not there. Sometimes you lie so much that you tend to accept that as truth. Why can't you go to Florida on the 28th? I mean if you don't show up I accept (not accet) your surrender. You're too stupid!
