So, why is it that there are so many threads attacking atheists lately?
No offense or attack intended- do whatever floats your boat. But your
THREAD LIST reads like a one-man atheist crusade wrecking ball.
I'm sorry, but how does what I'm doing compare to a thread like "Atheism" which is basically an ignorance based attack on atheist
than atheism compare to me:
Making a rant saying I'm not obsessed with religion (because I'm obsessed with film)
Attacking the intelligent design argument (a hobby of Ken Miller, biologist and Catholic)
Starting a thread that's trying to help theists and atheists alike overcome solipsism, the idea that everyone thinks like you.
Pointing out an inconsistency in the Bible on the concept of God being love while not matching the description of love presented in the Bible.
Pointing out an inconsistency on the omniscience and divinity of Jesus
A little thread on thinking outside the box
A thread providing evidence of evolution
A joke rant about not getting PMs telling me I'm going to hell (which was met with a few PMs jokingly telling me that I will be)
A thread that provided a resource to a skeptical breakdown of the Qu'ran
A thread asking Christians to do what their Bible claims they should be able to
And a thread promoting a friend's recent music video...
Ah, you'd rather just use weaselly language to paint me as some atheist fundamentalist.
Discussing ideas is not the same thing as spreading falsehoods about a group of people.
Take that how you will.
I'll take it as the logical fallacy that it is.
But to actually review the situation, let's look at the two largest religious forums, CIR and F&T.
Looks like mostly threads criticizing religions, churches, religious scandals, etc. Am not seeing any anti-atheist threads standing out.
There's an anti-secularism thread (one that actually ignorantly addressed the issue of the introduction of divorce into my nation).
But...that's not actually what I'm addressing.
I see 2 threads about atheism, 1 is started by an atheist. The rest are all religious in nature, questioning religion, or discussing religion.
Really now? "I am an athiest (sic)" is definitely not started by an atheist and seems to be an anti-atheist individual trolling. There's Typical's
'I am a theist" thread which intentionally misrepresents the idea of being an atheist even though it's been explained to him a number of times. And
the one little thread with a single word title garnered three hundred
responses in two days.
Then there's the giant straw man thread about non-believers who supposedly think science has all the answers...so...yeah. That's four now. Right
below it is 'when was atheism founded'. Five. Apparently you either can't count or don't know how to scroll on your web browser.
Volume isn't just in thread numbers. You should know that I'm unable to change the thread title, but the main reason I'm bumping this thread is
because I'm seeing an influx of threads that get a lot of attention that are simple ignorant attacks against atheists. Thread pops up, gets a few
hundred responses, goes away.
So... don't know what to tell ya.
That you can take your logical fallacies home with you, because they're not wanted here.
