In reply to comment: What is so ironic about Atheists? (see in situ)


First of all, an atheist is not "always talking about god". That is dishonest. I am an atheist (hate that term, everyone is an atheist, but anyway....) and my atheism or others' theism very rarely even crosses my cortex. My entire family is Christian, everyone I work with is Christian, and most of Daily Paul is Christian. Religion rarely ever comes up in conversation. I've never tried to "recruit" atheists, and I don't know any atheists that have. So no, atheists are not "always talking about god".

Secondly, why the violence? Why would causing someone physical pain be, in any way, a path to truth? I had a falling incident where I broke my leg and shattered my knee. What does that have to do with appreciating life? It is frankly disgusting that you would think a form of torture would prove your point of view. I appreciate life because I know it is the only one I have- I value it more than someone who believes in an afterlife.
