and again and again. Oh wait, tonight is the night for the apocalypse according to FLDS's leader. See everyone in the morning. Or not. Either way, doesn't matter. But if anyone is a believer in the word, the Bible says: No man shall know when I come. I shall come like a thief in the night.

TPreston, I respect your beliefs, I really do. Even if I never said that before. I do. But do you constantly have to disrespect other people's beliefs? I know I have disrespected in the past before. But I have even tried understanding yours and many others beliefs. I even asked FFM about it. So could we try to not disrespect each others beliefs? Thanx TPreston.

[b]Yes [/b]because this is where our moral reasoning comes from, Its the free market place of ideas and the stupid ones will be mocked to death.

Its incredibly important and the cause of social progress.

Well, I tried to be reasonable with you. But you are a completely unreasonable person. You condemn others for not having an open mind, but you don't have an open mind. You call anyone who believes in something you don't stupid or uneducated and hypocritical. So I give up on trying with you.

People should be respected, but beliefs and ideas should ALWAYS be subject to constant questioning, and when necessary, ridicule.

I respect your right to believe in whatever you like, but I can't respect the belief itself.

I understand your point FFM, except the ridiculed part. Everyone has feelings and when they get ridiculed for things, people can and sometimes do take exception and then the conversation can get heated and out of control. Isn't it better to not ridicule so the conversation can stay friendly and then can progress? Questioning is fine, ridiculing isn't.

Why? Why is this thread "neccesary" on Neowin? It just is wood for flamewars. These types of threads should be banned from Neowin.

I don't ridicule people, I ridicule beliefs that make unprovable claims. I'm not responsible for people that take personal offence at their pet beliefs being taken to task.

I think the real question is why haven't you all accepted Odin as the king of the gods into your heart?

Derp. I was trying to make a topic for atheists to demystify atheism. Apparently my topic annoyed someone and the topic was mindlessly merged into the general religion topic, without explination. Don't worry, I won't bother in the future. I'm sorry for trying, I usually am.
[/quote]

I get that, I wasn't trying to be insulting. I too disagree with so much merging.

I do however think in general, since atheism is such a conglomoration, that we should be wary of those who simply attack a deity as a way of taking a swipe at their morality. Far too often atheists come across as the sober guy at a party scoffing at those getting high. We all take a opiate of some kind, it just depends on what archetype you want to wrap it in.

You wouldn't even have sex "[b]tapes[/b]" if it weren't for science.
