...I'm sorry, you wanted more. *Sigh* I guess I can make one more post before I get in the shower and go see a movie.

How are we fanatical?
I am a fan of Bill Maher...but his atheism fanatical rants on religion or just over the top...it is like he has to tell the world at every opportunity
that he does not believe in God, exactly like a fanatical religious person who must declare his belief.
And I'm not a fan of Bill Maher and he is not on ATS as far as I know.
It is like the ATS poster who also are religion...they must pop in a thread about religion to say...they is no God...etc.
Please, point to a post where someone said "There is no god", I'd be surprised to find it.
I mean how does it hurt if it brings peace to those that need an outside source for comfort.
...because a false comfort is bad. Because having beliefs that conform with evidence of the world around you is good. Because disbelieving that which
has no evidence is a virtue. Because religion hurts people.
Also, people don't keep their religion to themselves...in fact, most religions condemn the act of keeping your religion to yourself.
Going into a religious thread just to say...God does not exist and then add no other constructive comment to the conversation is just dumb.
...and that never happens. Ever. Please, provide an example. I'm sure I'm the sort of user you're thinking of when you say that, but it's either
an odd interpretation of what I say or just a false impression from not actually reading the posts.
So OK..you do not believe in God...good for you..gold star for you,...high five....and whatever recognition you are looking for.
We're not looking for recognition, we're looking for conversation.
