<quoted text>Atheists share a common goal to let everyone know how persecuted they are. How Christians shove their beliefs down their throats. Paradoxically, these pseudo geniuses are oblivious to the fact that since they label themselves atheists, no religion has been forced upon them. They are excercising their constitutional right (freedom of religion) not to practice any faith at all. Hello, is anybody in there?
When we go to public school and prayers are offered or crosses hung in classrooms, or when we go to city hall or a courtroom and the 10 commandments are displayed, we are being told that the government favors Christianity over all other beliefs and non belief as well.

That means that the government thinks less of atheists, and indeed those of ANY other religious beliefs, than it does of Christians.

I suggest you read the Schemff vs Abbington School District supreme court decision. It says that the government is neutral, neither secular or religious and it can not favor or promote either.
The idea that the atoms that make up living things are different than the atoms that make up unloving things is as ancient as the bible.

I'm watching Deep Space Marvels right now on how life may have formed on Earth.

It's fascinating. I bet you couldn't even watch it.

Even when they break pottery?

I suppose they never broke a single clay pot or wore out a tool.

Either that or they took all the shards with them, right?

Unliving, not unloving.

Athough...

Nah.

That would include christians, and I think we all agree that they're living things.

Maybe not as much faith per se, but anything that might be missing by means for dedication is made up in the requirement of being able to resist the dogma and the harassment that atheists and agnostics constantly receive from people.

The people who are ultra-religious may mean well, but they end up coming off as religious zealots and becoming opposite or contrary beacons to the message they originally intended to portray or convey for the sake of conversion, their idea of what enlightenment opportunities are available, etc.

No, they likely buried them. And after a few thousand years, there's nothing left but dust.

Not only is the atheist's superhero, Richard Dawkins, a bigot but he is a coward as well. He wouldn't dare tour an Islamic country hawking his book, "The God Delusion", condemning Allah, Muhammad, Islam or Muslims. Oh, no! He values his pretty face enough to confine his rage against God within the comfort and safety of countries based on Christian principles to avoid a death contract like the one that kept Salman Rushdie hiding in seclusion for nine years.

Good old dunderheaded Dawkins can thank God that modern Christians are far more tolerant of irreligious rabble rousers than Muslim extremists otherwise he'd be surrounded with body guards and nervously looking over his shoulder 24/7.
