<quoted text>lol, there are atheists and then there are Topix atheists, two separate and distinct ideological groups. One group is comprised of normal, decent people we know in real life/offline, the later is made up of wussy little shyts who need someone smarter to mimic. Too bad the smart atheists they mimic are graceless toads.

After atheists prove there is no God, is it "Mission Accomplished" in the George W Bush sense?

Atheists (agnostics usually) and Christians seem good friends and avoid metaphysical speculation.

If someone acts in a humanistic way, tolerates my freedoms, and does not block advances in knowledge and science, then I don't mind if they believe in an afterlife or not.

They could believe that ingesting raw liver will let them live forever for all I care, as long as they don't force people to give them their livers.

They could believe leprechauns are real for all I care, as long as they don't force us to put all our gold into pots at the end of rainbows.

They can believe in their god for all I care, as long as they don't force everyone to live by the rather insane "laws" that they also routinely break themselves.

Crazy beliefs are fine, but when those crazy beliefs pose a threat to the well-being of others then they need to be addressed, and since crazy beliefs are delusions then they should be treated for their delusions until they are no longer a threat to others. They have demonstrated to be a threat to others, thus, until they are no longer a threat to others, christians who are too delusional to acknowledge reality should be treated for that delusion.

Romney was a bit Patrician

President Obama illustrated the changes in the Democratic Party, a big tent leaving the right wing to the Republicans.

Ayn Rand influence is declining, after all she was on Medicare.

Nobody in their right mind would knowingly accept a donor organ or blood from you.

BTW, seek treatment for your obsessive tucking habit, nutjob.

Atheism is not communism and never has been. Your lies are simply ridiculous, creationist f*ck.

Just because you can't attack atheism, doesn't mean you can lump it together with other random stuff that people hate and use that to hate us.

You guys are losers. I can't wait to see how your followers revolt against your religious leaders when they find out they are scum.
