What's up everyone. We are doing a contest with T.I. and we are giving away $1200 a day for the next 10 days. Just wanted to give you all a heads up.
I hope that I've never come across as one, I might have, but I don't understand the point in criticizing religion just to 'shock' people (ie. wearing a t-shirt that says something like "I'm an atheist, I don't believe in the tooth fairy, santa clause, elves etc. either"). Do people get some kind of 'power' from needlessly offending others? It's so obvious that some atheists love pushing people's buttons, they don't genuinely care about the harm that organized religion causes, they attack the most harmless aspects of religion under the guise of ' educating' people knowing, good and well, that in antagonizing people, they make them more defensive and lest receptive to their argument. Like I said, there are valid, moral reasons to criticize organized religion but 'anti-theists' should concentrate more on promoting separation of church and state and encouraging people to separate moral decision making from unsubstantiated religious beliefs than discouraging people from believing in some kind of benevolent, supernatural deity and promoting atheism per se. I'm writing this quickly so I wont go into detail (and I'm probably not wording my argument the way that I want to) but I've come to think that atheists really have nothing in common besides not believing in the same thing, I don't even think of myself as an 'atheist' anymore.
