I wanna know, where are all these Christian Fundamentalists? Hmm?
And don't even point your finger at me bro, if you read half of my Theology I am the opposite of a Fundamentalist; Fundamentalist don't like me and
would rather I not speak on Christanity at all.
I think people like you Jimbo are hyping the topic bigger than it is. There isn't very many "fundies" on here. My definition of a fundie is one who
is who hard headed and ignorant that they still honestly believe Dinosaurs never existed or were only a few thousand years ago. You know, the ones
that say Earth is only 6,000yrs old? That is a fundamentalist. I've seen like .. TWO members claim such a thing in the past month. Then again I dont
go trying to hunt it down.
However, I spent most of my time on this site in the Religious Conspiracies forum, the Origins forum, and the Faith & Spirituality forum, and I see
very little of this Christian Fundamentalism.
On the other hand, I do see more and more Christians, not being afraid of expressing themselves, and that is wonderful! I don't mean arguing,
being insulting, or claiming crazy things, I just mean being able to speak on the topic .. be it Christianity, without fear of being ridiculed by
people like .. the thread poster here who has a chip on his shoulder for Christians.
On the contrary, there are FAR more Atheist Fundamentalists on this website actively attempting to disprove the existence of God, disprove the
existence of Jesus, and to try to attack/disprove any religious thing they can get their hands on! Add it up .. theres WAY more threads critical of
Christianity and other Religion than there are threads of the opposite. So you're crying over spilled milk really..
And just like theres Atheist Fundamentalists, theres even more respectful Atheists, like MM. Where as MIMS would be in my opinion an Atheist
Fundamentalist. If you note the difference in how they both post, you will see the major difference there. One is content with their belief (MM), one
is attempting to disprove/attack others beliefs (MIMS).
Is that not what we should be calling Fundamentalist.. those who attack..
Man, this place needs some love. I tried to spark an alliance of decent people in the Faith forum but .. I doubt it'll take off. People would rather
be at each others' throats.
