I wonder sometimes if people realize what it is they are doing? In all this time (and often Ive considered the possibility that posting in the board was a waste of time?) that in my dealings with atheists, particularly on this board, how they seem to miss the boat? You have to be extremely careful in expressing your views because they all too often retort back with dominating blows (they justify it by calling it seasoned debating) and more often hostility.
This has not my experience in talking to atheists in the real world when standing at a bus stop or whatever, as the people I talked to seemed pleasant. On the internet though it is different story. I think this recent posting in the faith section and that post on satanism with the attraction to satan is a bit much. In so many posts I see a total disregard and outright hate towards God or anything related to God. What they do not see is in thier publicizing, even on this little board, they are in a small way practicing a religion as they post.
They are not merely saying, "oh, I do not believe in this or that."
They are not merely saying, "I do not believe in the false religion over the years."
They actually act zealously and keep declaring and ministering their wares just as LeVay did (very sick man) in his book as a religion. They become a religion.
It should be obvious for anyone to understand religion is publicizing.
I do not think they realize what it is they are doing and if they do, do not care. So sad it is.
