What a lovely, charitable, generous, giving, and forgiving question! Let me offer an answer: No, I do not wish to "feel" you now or ever. As a believer, I will also add that your attitude and opinion is offensive.
Really have no desire to feel you, but thank you for your clearly reasoned argument
I'm not an atheist, but I imagine they all follow some kind of un-divine leader that they elect in mysterious ways to serve as the voice of secularism on earth. Blind sheeple that would rather not think about things they think are too big for them, because it's easier if others do that, and they more or less take those others at their word. They probably read old nonsense books by random ancient philosophers that ramble about highly improbable natural occurrences and all sorts of things.<br />
I know right?
Wow...I don't know what happened to the timestamps, but it would seem that wolfmankay1 responded to my answer and entire year before I made it, lol. Well, 8 months actually. Strange things afoot here on EP. Hehe.
I'm feeling contempt.<br />
You are entitled to your ideas, no matter how misguided.<br />
However, your arrogance seems to know no bounds.
Yes I feel you. You are an arrogant self-serving individual who obviously has no real concept of the teachings of Christianity or any other religion. You are blatantly offensive to all thinking, reasoning and decent people.
I think it really depends on the individual atheist. I'm not sure if having no religion makes you a gullible person. I have encountered some who are strongly against religion, but that comes usually comes from bad experiences they've had with it. I don't think all atheists are like that though. I don't think this is a fair question. You're trying to generalize the personality of a group of people whose only common ground is they don't believe in religion.<br />
It's wonderful that you're such a strong believer in your faith, but at the same time you're blinded to the views of other people. I'm not saying they're right or wrong, but lets just think about this. You're calling THEM biased, but you have no idea where this bias comes from. You don't know their experiences, you don't know how they came to these conclusions. Instead of trying to find out why they are the way they are you just insult them and assume you are better than them. You're worse than the people who go around trying to convert everyone and just as blind as some of the atheists you you insult. The only difference between them and you is a religious symbol by your bed. <br />
Not all of them are blind. They have reasons. For some atheists, leaving religion was probably the hardest thing. To some, losing faith in whatever god they have probably broke their hearts. But you would prefer to generalize them into one type of person. The kind that's easiest for you to hate.<br />
You can't have compassion for someone without trying to understand them. God would have compassion whether his children believe in him or not. If you do not have compassion then you do not know God. You are as blind as you claim them to be. I feel sorry for you. At the gates of heaven you will not be asked how many of your enemies you defeated. You'll be asked how many you loved.
Nope, not feeling you at all. <br />
Atheists (unlike other groups) have only one thing in common--no belief in god. There is no central dogma, no set of generalized beliefs, no rituals. They are all very different. Your statement is ignorant. Atheism is to religion what bald is to hair color.<br />
Gullible? At least atheists don't believe in talking snakes, virgin births, flying Jewish zombies, talking donkeys, multi-headed monsters etc. That kind of gullibility is strictly for religious people. :)
I just saved this whole page as a PDF because it's so funny
In my experience most atheists are not gullible as they have cast aside the blind obedience of religion in most cases. Some certainly are arrogant, like any random group of people.<br />
Now as far as blindly biased and zealous, not in general.
Actually the first thing I thought about when I read your description was that you must have Atheists confused with Christians. At least Atheists think for themselves and take a stand instead of hiding behind the coattails of greater people. Granted, I don't believe all Christians are like that but you give them a horrible reputation... People like you are the reason other religions hate you. <br />
With the way you talk one might expect that you believe you are god. You speak as if you know everything he does, which, if my understanding is correct, goes against conventional Christianity....
Proud Atheist. Proud Scientist. Bible is fiction.
Awesome, what field do you work in?
So are people who try to provoke arguments.<br />
I'm not an atheist myself, but I wonder why then did you not politely state that this was directed at believers only and ask atheists not to respond then? That way if they did come in and complain it is them who poked up an argument.
Alright, try and make me a christian, tell me more, etc. I can see all these inconsistencies with your hypothesis, refute them to a point where none of us can find any holes and your theory will be sound and therefore as valid as any scientific theory. So? Go ahead, tell me more about the bible and other related things. Give it your best shot.
hummmm this must be what you were talking about when you said most hated person on E.P. <br />
meh, you are slightly offensive<br />
seems like a tough room I think you will have to break out the Holocaust jokes
@wolfmankay, maybe or your on the opposite side, like the Pharisees and Sadducees.
NO. And I dont want the Pope visiting here next week either. Let's hear it for Henry VIII !!
im not feeling anything on you
it's MUCH more logical to believe that humanity started with 2 humans that somehow managed to avoid the horrible genetic inbreeding, that there was a talking snake, some dude named noah who managed to fit 2 species of every animal on a boat (not to mention avoid all the genetic inbreeding THAT would have caused), that you have to be nice & love everyone unless of course they don't share the same view as you (then you have to stone them to death, or torture or burn them or *insert horrible death here* them) that there is a monster king named Satan that causes bad things to happen including miscarriages & earthquakes, a virgin woman was impregnated by a holy ghost & gave birth to the King of Zombies, & someday this Zombie King is going to come back & take everyone to a magical place somewhere out there....yep, totally feeling you.
sounds like a wonderful myth. i'd prefer to believe in logic & reason myself but...to each their own, i suppose.
Hahaha this is funny. Wow you're more of a douche than i thought. If you really believed in god you wouldn't care if others do or don't. it shouldn't matter that they talk crap about him and don't believe in him. the truth is that you're the most lost person i've seen in this world. You're not even trying to convince anyone that god is real? You're just as bad as stupid atheist. I don't believe in god and i think i'm a better christian than you'll ever be XD Good Luck in life buddy. Call me what you'd like but don't ever feel sorry for me, i feel sorry for you.
i believe in god and im sure that you are not speaking for him but your attitude sure seems like you think you are. no more hate...
Nah, you don't believe in God, trust me.
