I have to wonder; if we are so "boring," as you so stupidly claim, then why are you here at all?

Seems to me that if YOU had a life, you wouldn't need to be checking out an Atheism Forum in the first place.

Again, Bio, SO WHAT. Why does it matter to you HOW many atheists post here and how often? Why do you consider that to be any of YOUR business?

Personally, I think you're just pissed that Atheism even has a forum of its own, no matter where it is. Too bad. Atheists have just as much right to have a forum as you do. Why this is even an issue for you is beyond me.

Actually, the forum is where the people who run Topix decided to put it in their hierarchy of forums, for ease of reference and ease of users locating that forum. They could just as easily have decided that atheism is a sui generis topic and appended it outside that set of nesting topics, but that would have been poor design.

Unless you are being deliberately obtuse, which your other posts suggest is a distinct possibility, most people would see the logic in placing a forum on atheism in the general category 'religion' because atheism deals with the validity or invalidity of religion, as opposed to say, the validity or invalidity of fly fishing as a technique for catching fish.

In any event, even if they did decide to put the forum where they did because of their belief that atheism had the characteristics of a religion, that would only be an expression of their opinion as to what constitutes a religion, and whether atheism fits that definition. No doubt, running a vast message board or system of message boards requires a whole panoply of skills and competencies. Dealing with the intricacies of theology is not, however, normally considered to be an essential skill for a bulletin board sysadmin.

Perhaps he's pissed because there are so many atheists that Topix thought a board for them was appropriate, while Bio's own idiosyncratic beliefs, based apparently on his own unique visions or delusions, have not attracted enough followers to sustain a forum of their own. He's apparently decided that that being the case, he had to cast about for more followers, but chose the rather unpropitious venue of the atheism forum as the sea into which he cast his net.

Where would you suggest "without a belief" should be hosted?

Very Atheists are as you describe - most are just non believers.

Yep, that's a strong possibility. A lot of religionists are probably told by their clergy leaders that there aren't that many atheists, or something equally ridiculous.

Then they check out an atheist forum like ours and see there's a lot MORE atheists than they were led to believe. I can see how that would piss them off big time.:-)

DoJ has it right, amused. Atheism is a religiously held belief system because it's not based on objective science but on pure emotionally based egotism that is really trying to tell people atheists exists and God doesn't, who is their biggest competitor for attention it would seem. Only agnosticism is a valid philosophy of inquiry. Atheism is a fundamentalist reaction to theism and is of zero philosophical value because on the proponents ranting and raving on and on in OCD fashion only their own lack of experience in spiritual consciousness. And atheism being an ego-centered ideology atheists try to protect their ego investment in their failed ideology by flooding religious boards with atheists posts so no one can get a rational word in between constant posting by OCD atheists.

All atheism is is the lack of belief in deities. Nothing more, nothing less. It is not a "religiously held belief system."

And this erroneous information came from your witch doctors and spell casters, right?

Just one question, why would thier words, on who we are ever, over rule our words as to who we are?
