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.

Do you understand that the majority of posters on this thread who claim to be atheists are actually anti-theists, misotheists, altheists, and not atheists?
Atheists don't believe in deities and are indifferent to religions.
Anti-theists, misotheists, altheists, on the other hand, are not indifferent to God. They are defined by their HATE. They HATE God, HATE religion, HATE people who love God, and are obsessive-compulsive about expressing and acting out their hatred.
There you are wrong.

Most of the atheist here have been quite for most of their life, but are fed up with being degraded by society for not “following the flock” in a mindless herd mentality to follow and believe as they do.

As far a hate a god “NO”, but will correlate the belief of a said god with the writings of man that preach that the “god or gods” are loving when there is no direct correlation to any love of said god in the writings. Henceforth the actions of the said god in mans writings act out in evil fashions.

After being called many names by society and a few higher people nationally a person gets tired, fed up and yes mad about being talked down to and considered non-human, un-patriotic, non-citizen, and evil especially most of the evil actions come from the “religious” in society.

Therefore topix can give a route to let out some of the pined up frustration. If people of religious persuasion venture into the atheist topics forum then they should expect to be hammered by the people that they condemn and treat as lower life forms.
If they cannot take it they should cease and desists form the conversation.

There is nothing new that they can defend their belief system with, but they could try to defend it with reason and some hint of logic even if it is a default position of reason. Then we might be able to find a level ground for civil debate. I have tried to have conversions in a civil manner many a times, and after about the third post a lot of them in the conversation began with the hate comments.

After that the gloves come off, by then some other person enters into the conversation and right of the bat starts with the hateful comments without any knowledge of what perpetrated the use of language.

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.

...there is a critical factor which you omit.

You must be personally identifiable for something to be defamatory.

Your internet persona doesn`t count unless you are doing the defaming of someone under their given name or the name of a corporate entity.

The authority for this is Cohen v. Google, Inc., 25 Misc.3d 945, 887 N.Y.S.2d 424 (N.Y. Cty. Aug. 17, 2009)...or it may be referred to as "The New York Skanks Case".

What is this dubious standard, when you do not believe in any religion, why is it different from saying "there are no religions".
The same way you saying "There is no God" means God will cease to exist.
It is only a show of you own stupidity that you reject God, while this Whole Endless Universe is in front of you.
Only a "perfect idiot" can deny the Presence of a Creator while the Universe is in front of them.
Why should I define an infidel for you, am I a dictionary?
You should not answer a question with a counter question.
No, only a perfect idiot can deny the presence of a Creator while the Creator is in front of them. As it happens all we have is the universe.(shrug)

The existence of the universe is ONLY evidence of the existence of the universe. It is NOT evidence that it was created by an invisible magical Jewish wizard because he was bored one day in infinity.

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.
There is no positive assertion. There is no need. For a positive assertion, seek Skippy the Skeptic. He is the answer to your prayers.

Someone who believes God is evil. Richard Dawkins is an example of an altheist, He referred to God as "the immortal knob-twiddler" at his last debate.
He was wrong on that one, wasn't he? We all know that if the sky monkey buybull myth-god could do something as concrete as twiddling a knob, he could be proven to be real.

Someone who believes god is evil, would be a believer in some god or other, and that wouldn't be someone who is considered an atheist.

An altheist would be defined by you and no one else. I doubt you could get Al to agree though.

Because you seem to know about Islam more than the Muslims!!

Oh certainly you know more about your savage religion. I merely see children being beheaded by imams, little girls being sold into marriage, women getting their noses chopped off for upsetting a man and Muslims blowing themselves up daily to hurt, kill and terrorize innocent people just trying to live their lives.

No positive thing about Islam can excuse these barbaric religious practices that you admittedly approve of.

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?

Ans.

It is strange you call Allah Defensive?

And how could any Infidel Harm Allah?

He is far, far above every creature and how could any human Harm Him or take an iota away from His Kingdom?

They were born empty handed and they shall go their graves empty handed and they will leave every thing as it was!!

What Allah is warning these unbelievers is about the "consequences of their actions". They are under a test in this life and they must know about it.

Love and hate are two way streets and not one way. Ask jews, do they 'Love Muslims and Christians"?

Why you blame only one party?

Give the positive definition for infidel Muq. You said all words must have a positive definition. Do you wish to take back your statement that all words have a positive meaning? Perhaps Allah is unable to guide an answer to you on the positive definition for infidel?

If so either Allah does not exist or he is an inferior god indeed.

I told you not to answer a question which another question, this is bad manners.

First let us complete with Atheism and beliefs of Athiesm , then you might ask abut other matters.

Why are you so shy to admit that there is "Nothing Positive" in Athiesm and 'No Positive traits" in Athiests!!

Why are you trying to cover up so much?

Yeah, that would be the bad theist, who believes your myth-god to be evil. It takes a theist to believe the gods are anything other than imagination.

It is a lie to claim there is nothing positive about atheism. To date real discoveries in science have all been of an atheistic nature. There are no scientific discoveries that rely on a god. When atheists give to charity you know that they are true altruists, they do not do it simply because their invisible friend says that they should.

It would be even more ridiculous to claim that there is nothing positive about atheism than it would be to claim that same about Islam.
