Please note that for this article "Atheism" also includes agnostics, deists, pagans, wiccans... in other words non-religious.

You will notice this is a statement of fact. And to be fact it is supported by evidence (see references below). Now you can have "faith" that this is not true, but by the very definition of faith, that is just wishful thinking.

Good question. Most fundy trolls label anyone who disagrees with their notion of God to be haters. It is simply a projection on their part.
I can't find any definition for "altheist". I guess it could mean a group of Saudi people. Possibly Al atheists? Though I can't imagine that surviving culture would continue there.

I thought it was a hilarious freudian slip, especially coming from the current leader of the evangelical atheist movement.....

Copy/paste errors--left off the "M". It's maltheist, not altheist.

No help there. I don't intend to wade through 90+ pages of questions so I'll take it as meaningless.

So I take it you agree with this definition?

Maltheism (from "mal" meaning bad, or illness, and theism, from... well, theism) is the idea that God is just out to get us and that he or she or it is malicious, like a kid who keeps removing the pool ladders in The Sims. A Maltheist, therefore, is someone who believes that a god or gods exist, and that they are evil, malicious, incompetent, or otherwise causing the suffering of humanity. In essence, Maltheism is the idea that God exists and is not worthy of worship.

They all assert negatives but have a with a positive outcome if fulfilled.

There is no ideology associated with Atheism, and belief is not a matter of will, it in an unconscious act, one either believes or one doesn't, anyone who says "You should try to believe in god" is an idiot and/or liar.

While I appreciate that English is not your first language your performance on this thread is something akin to a plumber lecturing a cardiovascular surgeon on the intricacies of a coronary artery bypass graft.

In short you are the man who came to the battle of wits UNARMED...and you bore me.
Ans.

Why are you getting all this "worked up"? What did I say that shook you to the "core".

And by the way, is that how you define "atheism" or is it "Your definition of Athiesm"?

You have spoken truth when you say that there is "no ideology" with Athiesm!! This is the "basic quality of any thing based on negation"!!

Athiesm is like a "rudderless boat", it has no aim, no course and no goal. It just moves around where the winds and waves and currents take it.

PS:

What my English has to do with the point we are discussing?

This is not "English language" class room . Is it?

And I "bore you" because you have no answer to my "simple and straightforward questions"

And in the same way Hindu feel bored when you ask them to define "Who is a Hindu"!!

What is the positive definition of an infidel?

How many times do we have to tell you an atheist is just a person who doesn't believe in god?

Wow you are really making Muslims look ignorant Muq, are you trying to do that on purpose?
Ans.

You should not answer a question with another question, this is called etiquette!!

Where did I say that Athiest is a Person who denies the existence of God….but this is not a complete definition. It is only a negation, where is the Positive part of what Atheism is.

And one more thing, when you do not have answer, you start attacking the person and using insults and abuses and personal attack.

And to me this is TELL TALE Sign that you have no answer to my request.

Why you bother to even answer my post? I do not ask replies from ignorant persons like you!!

I wish to express my gratitude to Mr. Edzdit for his support to me.

I am "used" to the harsh words and the abuses and insults and they make little impression on me.

But it is the world of love and kindness that pierce my shield and wound me deep inside!!

I thank you Sir, with the bottom of my heart.

May God reward you for your kindness and you have a very nice and good day.

Making "every thought captive."

Why is allah so defensive? Why does he fear disbelievers? What harm could they possibly be to God?

Is he Just as insecure as his Xtian counterpart?
Is it barely possible they are one in the same entity.- With multiple personality disorder

Is it true... Muslims do not like Jews?
If so please tell us why that is
They were the first were they not?

No if we asked what a Hindu is we would listen to their answer and accept it. We wouldn't shriek at them that their definition for themselves is incorrect like you do Muq.

I guess being a janitor at the airport is tough on you yes?

Where is the positive part of infidel is?( Typed in Muq style english ) We have to answer your question with a question because you lack the intelligence to understand.

So by asking you a question this can help guide you to the answer.

I'm starting to get bored...and while "ALL GAYS ARE NAZI ZOMBIES" is a temporary fix (I've actually heard that one before), it lasts a very short while due to the lack of any cognitive process.
The problem is that extreme theists like MUQ and ezdit (I know I keep forgetting a letter in there, but I really don't care) are indoctrinated. They have a set of beliefs laid out, written down, and there for them to memorize. Anything outside of those beliefs do not compute, they can't come up with anything by themselves so they revert to their doctrine's manual.

You are a pathological liar and what you have posted is unequivocally defamation.
Another equally repulsive poster has just been banned from Topix for this cowardly behavior.
Would you like to be next?
You obviously never read MUQ's posts.

I've been reading MUQ's posts in response to the questions posed to him on various threads for about three years now. I've always been impressed with how calm and civil he remains despite the number of filthy insults and accusations from sick, ignorant perverts and bigots on Topix.
Explain bigotry and how the people you claim are bigots fit the description.

Explain perversion and how the people you claim are perverts fit the description.

Explain pedophilia and how the MUQ doesn't fit the description, when he claims 12 year olds are fit to marry.
