I don't have a problem with atheists either. In the context of an internet "friend", I have made a number of friends on topix, even some that are atheists. In fact, I rather have an argument with an atheist because they usually go indepth with their criticisms and defense of what they stand for.<quoted text>
It's more beautiful when you listen to it or read it in gurmukhi, because the verses rhyme and are very sweet.
I don't have any problem with atheists! I have a problem with people who think they know it all and who then try to enforce their view on me. Normally, but not always, these people are the religious nuts! The atheists I know, told me about their beliefs but they have never tried to 'convert' me. That 'virtue' only belongs to the fanatic religious people.
And I agree with you as well about those trying to impose their views. I'm a Christian. Proud of it and proud that I worship Jesus Christ as God. But nowhere in the accounts of Jesus' life on earth, did Jesus ever tell his followers to force people to worship Him Jesus, as God. All Jesus said was to "go and tell". That's it. Christians can't make anyone worship Jesus. Once a person has heard the Gospel of Christ, then its their decision to embrace, or reject. After someone reads or hears the Gospel, it then becomes personal between that person, and God. The responsibility of the Christian to that person is over. If after a person knows, and the Christian or Organization is forcing the issue, then that Christian or Org. is exhibiting cult like tendencies. And a cult is anti-freedom, and not of God.
And I know almost everyone in this forum, have read about Jesus Christ. They reject, that is their issue. I mostly stop by to see the latest argument and defense these atheists have for their beliefs...which can be both hilarious and require a serious response or two at times.
