Don't dictate beliefs

No one else can say otherwise? That is basically saying those who do "believe in God" are better? Hardly.

Okay, so here's the rest of your tripe.

As I said, theism is only a category. There are lots of different subcategories and religions under the umbrella of theism -- Hindus, Catholics, Orthodox Catholics, Protestants, Baptists, Mormons, etc.

There are also a lot of different subcategories of atheism -- Buddhists, Jainists, Humanists, etc.

As a category theism itself is NOT a belief in any specific thing. It just specifies those people who hold a belief in one or more deities.

As a category atheism itself is NOT a belief in any specific thing. It just specifies those people who do NOT hold a belief in one or more deities.

Anything else you try to add to that is just so much BS.

Are you a male, or a fat broad with boobs to your waist? I'm assuming your male. Most men grow up and don't stay momma's boys, or grandma's boys either, you wimp. I remember your early whiny little posts,my grandma this, my grandma that, blah blah blah. Who gives a sh*t what your grandma does? And if you had any decency you wouldn't have introduced her to the forum in the first place since she's probably a fine person, and you're nothing but a piece of sh*t. Go sit on the toilet. As to what your pore old worn out grandma might tell me, I don't give a fu*k, got that? LMAO

Who appointed you judge of the forum?

Atheists always say they're winning, lol, and they think they can proclaim victory even when there is rotten egg all over their puny faces, lol.

You're the biggest loser in any forum I've ever been in. Your posts aren't worth stopping to read. You're a fool.

So go get rid of the rest of your poop, douchebag. You're full of it.

Atheism Is a Religion

Found within the text:

Here you have the atheistic religion in a nutshell: superhuman agency, devotion, self-selecting groups of people. Add to that the intenseeven religiouszeal with which many atheists defend their claims. Let me tell you: The angriest ones can be as malicious as a coven of Westboro Baptists at a veterans funeral. Bill Maher himself took five minutes at the end of the next week's show to rant against anyone who would call atheism a religion.

continued:

Atheists should embrace their religiosity, recognize the biological component that drives them to make sense of the world like the rest of us, and church it up. As the Man from Galilee once put it, render unto Caesar what is Caesars, and to God what is Gods. If you dont believe in God, then you dont owe him anything. And if my Facebook friends are any indication, you lost your sense of humor ages ago. Which means you atheists may have nothing left to lose but your taxable status.

[Amen!]

The Religion of Atheism

Some Atheists recoil at the claim that Atheism is a religion and consider the notion absurd. Many would consider Atheism the antithesis of religion. Maybe youve heard such remarks as,If Atheism is a religion then bald is a hair color.

[Poster's insert: Yes, we have Hedonist took credit for that without mentioning he grabbed it from a mold and without attributing it to the real author.]

It is a false analogy that asserts all religions are defined by a belief in a deity which we know is inaccurate because of such religions as Unitarian Universalists, Taoists or Buddhists.

Nonetheless, how is it that we can purchase The Good Book: A Humanist Bible that includes their own version of the Ten Commandments or attend The First Church of Atheism with services provided by an ordained Atheist minister but we cant buy a box of hair color called bald?

[LOL]

continued:

The New Atheism is placing faith in the belief that there is no God. Their belief system is based on science and philosophy. The New Atheists use this belief system to interpret and relate to the world around them, defining their worldview as an overall perspective of life and the universe.

Atheists are known to have their own prophets like Charles Darwin, Friedrich Nietzsche, Ludwig Feuerbach, Vladimir Lenin, Karl Marx, or Voltaire.

They have their own preachers such as Christopher Hitchens, Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, and Daniel Dennett among others. Through their work these men are aggressively seeking to convert others.

Atheists have orthodoxy as they believe everything is unintentional, uninspired happenstance
via evolution. They base their beliefs on the ever changing developments of scientific scrutiny.

[Yes, atheism is a religion...]

A survey published in the 2005 Encyclopedia Britannica stated that 2.3% of the world's population consists of individuals who profess "atheism, skepticism, disbelief, or irreligion, including the militantly antireligious." In regards to the 2.3% figure just mentioned, the 2005 survey cited by Encyclopedia Britannica survey did not include Buddhist in regards to the 2.3% figure and Buddhism can be theistic or atheistic."
Wikipedia:
"Another survey attributed to Britannica shows the population of atheists at around 2.4% of the world's population.[citation needed] It is difficult to determine whether atheism is growing or not"
Wikipedia :
"2005 poll by AP/Ipsos surveyed ten countries. Of the developed nations, people in the United States were most sure of the existence of God or a higher power (2% atheist, 4% agnostic)"
Wikipedia :
"According to one estimate, atheists make up about 2.3% of the world's population"
2005? Did you have go that far back to find something relevant to your mistaken way of thinking? You could have just done what all the other religitards do. Make something up and lie. Even if it were true, theism is not just Christain, it is every bit of space cadet crap that can be imagined, even the guys who wait for the bus from outer space. Those are your theist!

100% of babies born to theist parents, are atheist.

100%.... we didn't lose them, we never had them, they are atheist at birth. That means without theism, it does not mean non believer, even those infants are non believers too.

Being the children of theist, they will be indoctrinated to whatever invisible magic friend mind fantasy their parents play at.

There are many thousands of theistic bents, that the theist parents could be indoctrinating their children into. You go ahead and claim them all for the loon side, the worship of any and every god from Achelois to Zeus, from Kali to Beelzebub, they all make up that ever shrinking percentage, they are the vanishing theist.

Once upon a time, all these gods were believed in, and now it's only a tiny percentage, that are left, with even a few believers. >>> godchecker.com

Religious demographics are tremendously difficult to compile on a worldwide scale. Here's a geographic representation published by Penn State that I found on the Pew forum and credited to the Encyclopedia Britannica World Book, 1999 that asserts that 15.4% of the world population consists of nonbelievers.

http://www.worldreligions.psu.edu/maps-introd...

Is that accurate? Hard to tell. But the 2.3% figure low-balls the figure by counting only self-professed atheists, so the higher figure seems more reasonable.

Why do you think that you need us in your faith and religion boat? Do you want to be like us? If so you are still going at it the wrong way, but keep trying, you may get it right after a few thousand or so more tries.

"According to one 2005 estimate, atheists make up about 2.3% of the world's population" OK, so where is the data that proves that, and who did the one estimate?

That >>> one <<< estimate, you first laud and then try to use it as established fact. Well it don't work that way. It is not established fact.

So let's look again at your own source, wiki ......

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irreligion
"It has been estimated that 16% of the world population (1.1 billion people) are " non-religious" and on the same page "Some evidence suggests that the fastest growing religious status in the United States is "no religion". And it goes on to say that it may be 40 - 50% now.

and

www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-12799801

Mar 20, 2011 ... Nearly two-thirds of people do not regard themselves as "religious", a new survey carried out to coincide with the 2011 Census suggests.

That would be 66%.

and

www.amazon.com/Good-Without-God-Billion-Nonre... ...-Good Without God: What a Billion Nonreligious People Do Believe [Greg Epstein]

Good Without God: What a Billion Nonreligious People Do ...

and BTW, "drink the koolaid' is all about the sheep following their shepherds instructions from the lord.

Willful blindness, and obdurate ignorance!

I suppose that you'd think that every "A" word would have to be the same in regards to how the "A" was to be used? So Alvin, Arthur, alphabet, arithmetic and avenue, can all be used as lvin, rthur, lphabet, rithmetic and venue?

So should we all be considered theist? We will just let you void out the "A", and it's meaning, we wouldn't want you to have to face the truth, now would we?
