Because they are both experts and proponents of "The one right way". I just want to be left alone as a pagan. You guys should get into a stadium with plenty of blunt instruments and beat each other up. You are both as bad on each other.
Sadly life is not fair.

You could say that Atheists are heavily science-fearing individuals blinded by their faith *shrugs* it's more or less the same.
I'm sorry, but science and faith are mutually exclusive.
not at all,
you have faith in science.
You believe in what science tells you.
Belief is any thought you hold in consciousness,
especially those you re-visit and reinforce.
Science also is a priesthood,
much like freemasonry there are three degrees,
Bachelor, Master, Doctor,
and there are high-priests which spread the faith
called teachers or professors.
Atheism has nothing to do with science! It has to do with philosophy.
Science is a child of Philosophy.
Much like Buddhism is a child of Hinduism.
So you've never seen The Secret,
where by Quantum-Entanglement (magic-spells),
and Observer Bias (allowing things to appear), we shape our experience.
Then how can you claim to know quantum-physics?
If you don't apply it in your daily life?
anyone that delves into M-Theory must admit to spirits,
or dimensional co-existing entities.
I'm sorry, but the existence of 11 dimensional spacetime doesn't necessarily imply its inhabitation by entities. Hell, there doesn't seem to be any evidence of what could exist in those other dimensions, if anything exists at all.
Actually If you look at any of the theories,
you'll find that there are infinite worlds,
that can even have us in them, with slight variations.
but considering they are infinite, it's just about anything.
Furthermore, M-theory still exists in the realm of competing theories. It isn't necessarily proven, though the experiments at CERN might shed light on it.
Physics hasn't had a testable theory in over 70 years,
since the birth of String Theory. *shrugs*
As steven colbert calls it,
If they don't then they haven't applied the science to their own lives.
...I'm sorry, but you don't seem to understand science.
You the one that does not apply science to daily life.
Is telling me, a person that does apply science to daily life.
Just think about it, I'm a scientist, since I apply the Scientific Method.
Hypothesis, Procedure, Result Analysis.
And I write down my experiments.
I'm sorry, but how is 'accepting claims without evidence or understanding or reason' opening yourself up?
I'm not sure what claims your referring to.
Is your mind making claims,
and you're denying they are valid?
Able to transcend the boundaries set by book-religions and materialist-atheism.
Atheism is not inherently materialist. I am a materialist separate from my atheism.
Really so what Immaterial or Spiritual things do Atheists believe?
It's supported by the experience of many thousands/millions of Mystics.
I'm not sure you've heard, but there is this going around called the Awakening.
The materialist half of it is realizing the powers that be,
Though the spiritual half is also present.
Ya maybe you'd like to look it up...
here is the original thread, contrasting outer-theism with inner-theism:

Tis a silly thread.
You didn't even look.

Define why Christianity is 'stupid' - define stupid.
Look at this thread, I have seen several atheists describe atheism in different ways when really there is only one - refusal to take faith alone as a reason for acceptance (although one atheist then went on to say how they were sure of the existence of ET life and was very specific about it - faith?).
That's fine, I may or may not be of the same thought, but please, it's an opinion that some people have. That doesn't make it a movement of like minded people with a common purpose which seems to come across as a perception a lot over the last few pages.
Hi, just out of interest, why do some people on here use the phrase Xtian? Do you have a problem with someone named Chris? Surely you need to also remove the 't' also if you wish to indulge in such games?
Well I can only speak for myself , it's just a matter of indolence, as for indulging, well I don't need to do anything.
