    Not really a debate, but the other thread in this forum needs this companion.
    Do I frighten anyone?
    Or at least annoy?

    Atheist =/= irreligious, so this really isn't the foil of the other thread... :sweat:

    Since you reverse my own OP :) I do not fear anyone, but disagree with many.

    For added irony, you should have put this in the Atheist Only forum.

    I am afraid of objectivists, not just the Ayn Rand kind, and that includes the direct, indirect, weak and strong kinds.
    I know nothing about you, when it comes to that.

    QUOTE:

    Too many Christian authors have tried to be kind and amiable in an effort to demonstrate that believers don’t have to sink into the mud in order to defend the faith. That tact is very charitable, but unfortunately, it just doesn’t work with bullies.

    Today's atheists are bullies -- and they are doing their best to intimidate the rest of us into silence

    If you were being offered a godless cupcake, or a divine cupcake, whose hand would you reach for? :)

    From the article, these struck me as fun & clever...not bullying.

    "There’s no polite way to say it. Atheists today are the most arrogant, ignorant and dangerous people on earth."

    I'm "dangerous".
    Watch out!

    I see, so you just offer these to all the newcomers, because you're trying to get rid of unused surplus from the kitchen you'd never eat yourself? I wonder how many overweight members have you to blame?

    There are a few atheist bullies out there. I also find them tiresome.

    But there are far far more religious bullies. There have been for centuries. Even today, there are more religious bullies than the total of all atheists put together.

    And I can't help but notice that the arrogant atheists tend to be exbelievers. People who learned how to bully from some religion or another.
