"If it wasn't for God, there would be no atheists."

I stopped reading here after the first sentence.

RE: Atheism - a contradiction of terms
..... Many people call "Atheist" anyone who doesn't believe their belief systems' teachings/inventions. But these people may have, or have had, religious experiences that include God - just a different God. So which of the apparently many Gods should they obey? Or none of them? Maybe they don't want to obey anyone! They just want FREEDOM! FREEDOM! FREEDOM! Even clergy deserve to have some income!

Actually, the writer should have said " if there were no theists, there would be no atheists".

It was only fair that someone copied Dali for once!

I read the whole thing, and I feel stupider because of it. This was obviously written by someone who is incapable of even elementary logic. Of course, what else would one expect from someone who supposes there's an invisible guy in the sky controlling everyone, and then says we're crazy.
