It's funny, because I just recently found one more friend yesterday that was an atheist, I had never talked to him about religion or anything, be we then started to recount all the stupid things religious people have said to us. It's was fun and laughter ensued.
It seems like many atheists are coming out of the closet these days. That's great! It implies that they feel much less stigma and that they will be better accepted than in the past. It's a long overdue correction of a terrible injustice perpetrated by the church that has long enjoyed scapegoating both gays and atheists.

And more of us are feeling comfortable using the word "atheist" to describe ourselves, although I'd prefer that we eventually defining ourselves in relation to what WE believe, not what people of faith believe and what we reject. They're theists. Most of us are humanists and rational skeptics, not merely non-theists.

You know what hypocrite. For someone that's been telling Epi (over and over and over again) to let the "icon thing" go you sure can't seem to come in here without obsessing over Chris and his beliefs. Which by the way walk hand in hand with what God's Word says. Unlike yours which badly contradict God's Word and have absolutely no Biblical basis at all. You've been belly aching and obsessing over him for months now.

So why not take your own advise and STFU!!!

Called it a freak storm. Just like they did when the fifteen foot wall of ice fell in 2009. This time around was two inches within minutes and the hail was size of golf balls. They called out the snow plows to clear the roads. People were wearing shorts and clearing it off with snow shovels. What a hoot that was on the local news. Roofs fell in from the weight of this too. Some are standing around now taking photo of lightning calling it a lightning show. Good sense went bye bye cause that stuff is dangerous. One must wonder who forgot to turn on the light bulb in the upstairs department. One of the mountains here rocks came tearing off it rollin into homes and people just said opps what happened here. They do not think anything shakes rocks or rolls. lol the wonder of it all.

Yet they are highly offended by being lumped as "all Christians". I will be glad to share my "Angel of Darkness" title with you. I have no need to be the only "Angel" on this thread.
LOL. I don't see either of us in those terms, but OK. I see my message as very constructive and hopeful. Yours, too.

My thoughts... We often hear...search the Bible for answers...a demoralizing book at best...at least that is the way it seems to be used by some. Being fair...there are those that search for the love within those written words...others search for those that can be used to silence that love by demoralizing others. Never has one book been used in such a way as this one has.
I like your thoughts, which brings me to this: I've been sitting on a post I wrote in response to one from Senecus' partly out of respect for you, because I recall that you do or did blog with him. I didn't care for his characterization of Topix posters, nor his vaunting himself and his blogging above message board posting, and I let him know it. I think I'll post it after this post, now that I've explained myself.

That's not what an atheist rejects. Atheism is a big tent. There is room for mystical intuitions here. I've shared some of my own in the past, as have other unbelievers. The universe may very well turn out to be more than it appears. I just don't assume that it is conscious, or knows or cares about me.

Atheists reject the gods and religions that men have invented. In the case of the Abrahamic religions, it's ridiculous, demeaning, infantilizing, and harmful. We reject prayer, worship, revelation, judgment and other similar nonsense - not a sense of mystery, of gratitude, of awe, or of connectedness.

That's how a theist would see it. That's how many of the theists present have described this thread. They don't like to share the floor with us. They don't like seeing their church or their faith criticized.

The ones who have left in a huff are Christians that didn't like reading what unbelievers have to say. Sorry about that.

Is that right? How would you know? Are you counting yourself among such people? Do you speak for them?

I consider the religious blogosphere to be a wasteland. Most religious blogs are boring, self-indulgent, masturbatory musings about singing to Jesus all day or whatever other nonsense preoccupies people fixated on pie in the sky. It's irrelevant to unbelievers.

Here's what I mean:

"Ten Passages for Pastors to Memorize Cold" from a blog called Desiring God at http://www.desiringgod.org/blog/posts/ten-pas...

Bo-ring!

"Our Gifts" from a blog called Devotional Christian at http://devotionalchristian.com/our-gifts/...

Oh the tedium!

Topix is much more substantial than that fluff. It's also more human, more dynamic, and more topical. It's representative of the exciting change occurring all around us - the ascendance of secularism and irreligiosity in the West. That's what the Christians like Adam, Trifecta, Clearwater, and Dr. Shrink are shouting about, and what the Christians that have fled are hiding from.
