Sorry if I’m making too many threads, but don’t you hate it when Christians act like their better than everyone else because they’re Christians? Like all atheists are stupid, and atheism is the spawn of all evil?

Yes, and its just as bad when the mormons pray over your head, thinking its going to change anything.

Then again, isn’t that exactly what this group is doing except the opposite?

well, Religious people are not superior. No man or woman is superior, ideally...

however.. since we of the Atheist and Agnostic... blood?
have given more answers to wether or not Gods exists, questioned all Gods and their ways. blah blah blah it makes our kind. more superior.. in a sense that we fear nothing and will fight even the Gods if we feel the need to be justified

but still. no one is superior, ideally.. <__<;

"if they created me, but created me as a lower form. then i choose not to live..or to even exists..."

must of the time i ignore christians, i dont care about them, but sometimes they piss me off, like one time my english teacher started talking about religion, she's christian, and i dont remember but she started talking about atheism, that we were a bunch of stupid rebel kids, that we know that god exists but we just dont believe, an all that with an annoying grin at her face. but i didnt wanted to say anything since must of the teachers, even the dean are christians in my school, and i dont want to be suspended or something.

That is, the most annoying thing, I ever have to deal with. >_>; Someone tried to do that to me once; well enough that it pissed me off enough to actually say something. If I remember correctly. The retard had his entire little world of ignorance shattered. And he tried to get me expelled because the second that happened, he had a mid-life crises, and lost it. >_>; Fuckers...

Yes. I hate anyone that acts more superior then others for a stupid reason. Even worse, being Christian kind of lowers their knowledge. I mean, being Christian, they believe in that book they call a bible. Everything in it, they don't think twice about whether its true or not. As long as the bible says it, its suppose to be 100% true. They believe so blindly they think nothing of whether it could actually be false. They have NO right to act like they are superior when their are so incredibly gullible.

I just tend to ignore any kind of religious bull and do my own thing.

On Firday my roommate Mike and I headed out to Manteca to get his taxes done. As we were pulling up to HR Block i noticed a Christian book store and i would be lair if i didn't say my interest wasn't at all peaked. The person that helped Mike with his taxes was a extremely awesome older lady that was glad she had the job she had but hated everything about the U.S government. She seemed honestly pleased with our antics, she even joined in making fun of us. Once that was all said and done, i brought up the bookstore again and Mike agreed to going and maybe adding our own touch of self-reality.

We perused the shelves of books and other Jesus nicknacks, where I couldn't help but ask the kid at the counter a question we had formulated outside. "Hey," I said.

"Hello, can i help you?" He said.

"Yes, i saw your Jesus statuettes there in the back. I was just wondering if you have any african-american Jesus statues," I said with a wry smile.

With surprise in his eyes, i could almost see a question form in his mind: "Why would he want a black Jesus?" But out loud he said, "No sorry. We don't."

"Ok, no worries," I said and joined with Mike once again who was looking at rings that turned when you wore them with the words; "He died for me. Living for Him."

I remarked he should buy one for Telly. He said, "She would punch both of us in the face."

We headed to the back into the children's selected reading, where we found ourselves sickeningly becoming uncomfortable with our immediate surroundings. It wasn't so much watch we saw, but the realization of what this place subtlety told us. The shirts they had cemented for me what was going on. With slogans as: "Jesus died for myspace in heaven" (yes, my-space, was close together on the shirt) "Be anxious for nothing. Trust in me now". The last shirt is from something called Cadia which i found out is a Christian rock band. It was about then i realized what i was seeing; the soft sodomy from Corporation America of God. I know the feeling hit Mike harder and faster than it did me, but we quickly came to the understanding that this was probably not what God would want. All of it seemed out of place and blasphemous even to this Atheist.

Oh, i forgot to mention, whilst we were at the children's books marking on how much Narnia covered most of the shelves, i noted the kid that was at the counter earlier was now a few steps behind us, pretending to organizing gift cards. And when we moved to the shirts i saw him still a few steps behind us, him and i made eye contact and he quickly moved away. For reasons i still don't understand we were being followed. It wasn't as if Mike or myself planned on stealing, but i can't help but wonder what it was about us that would cause to be followed. Yes, it was plain to see that we weren't of their kind, but to be looked after? I wasn't insulted, just curious and a little judge by people that should believe "judge not, unless ye be judged". Mike mentioned once again that he didn't feel right, and it wasn't the hamburger he ate earlier that was causing the twist in his belly. As we headed to the door, i pleasantly thanked the kid for following us and we headed out. Where another item caught Mike's attention.

"Did you see the bible manga?" he said once we were outside.

"What? No."

"Right there on the shelf in the corner." And pointed.

Looking back inside i saw the anime inspired gospel. This didn't effect me that much, i figured it was a good way to get young people into the bible. But at the same time, i thought why would the Good Book need appeal? Wasn't it enough already to have the real thing in your hands? Isn't the Bible good enough to stand on it's own without a comic version?

The answer came soon enough; money. The all American dollar capitalizing on every inch of something that should be good on its own. Mike and I once again came to the same conclusion; it wasn't Christianity that we blamed, it was the store itself. We, or at least I, don't think any self-respecting Christian would go into that store without buy nothing more than a Bible. I can see wearing a shirt you got from a charitable act would be appropriate; something like "Cans for Life 08" a shirt displaying that you had a can food drive for the homeless around your area. Or, "He was a Carpenters son, so i'll build" shirt for constructing housing in a low income district (Mexico). But to just plainly (or blandly) showing colors for something that does not need a clothing label, seems disrespectful.

Why does God's kindly followers need a clothing label? They don't. It's America tricking them into buying shit they don't need with money they don't have. Mike in so many words remarked on the Book Stores higher ups, getting rich and fat with the money they have ripped from they customers with a sentence; "If the devil wanted to take over wouldn't he appear to be good guy? So he could trick people into following his ways?"

I agreed. But the whole idea sickened me to a degree where i gave up and started to sing with Mike the "Nah, nah, nah's" of Hey Jude as we drove back home.

Maybe it's just me. I'll dress to show my idea of fun, such as a video game shirt or my shirt with "Geek." across the chest. But i don't wear a shirt displaying I'm an Atheist, it's slightly disrespectful to others since most Atheist shirts i found seem too harsh against others beliefs. One such shirt i found boldly stated, "God does not exist. Get over it." (yeah, i was surprised too. I started to wonder if they were from this group.) Not only is it discourteous, it's just not clever and most Atheist shirts don't go much farther than that. And at least those shirts are by people that are selling them online and not a large company. But still i'm sure even those people hope to make bank on their apparel.

whatever and ever, Amen

Well, historically speaking there’s no real reason to believe that most of the bible’s contents aren’t as reliable as most other historical documents which you yourself, I'm assuming, beleive. We make that assumption off of the philosophical and vaguely religious assumption that miracles cannot happen. As a historical document, however, much biblical text has outside sources to strongly buttress it. Though, some other parts of it are kind of contradicted-debatably.

Anyway, just because somebody has blind-faith doesn’t at all mean that their stupid, ignorant, or gullible. Actually, science has begun to show us that some of the most utterly genius people in the world a babies and young children. Intelligence is the measurement given to our problem solving and learning abilities-and children learn much faster than adults. Yet, they also believe whatever their parent’s tell them.

I’ll agree with the “gullible” comment though, under the assumption that what the bible says isn’t true. Then again, if it turns out that the bible is true…then that makes everyone else gullible, doesn’t it? Honestly I find it immensely arrogant to assume that you alone see the truth of reality as it is.

Anyway, I can guarantee you that you have a few blind beliefs yourself. For example, you believe in atoms? Yet, you’ve never seen one. “But there’s scientific evidence!” Yes, and I suppose you’ve seen this evidence yourself? No, you’ve just heard or read about it. You’re blindly having faith in you source-and that’s no different than what Christians are doing.

Besides this if you look back you’ll find that most of the history’s greatest geniuses were not cold clinical and secular people, but brilliant, poetic, and religious character’s. It’s true of art and of science-the most prominent figures are religious, and it continues to this day.

Now, that’s not to say that they’re smart because they’re religious. That’s flatly stupid, most religious people are stupid. The real reason that most brilliant minds in the world are religious is because…most people in the world are religious. More religious people=more stupid people who happen to be religious and more geniuses who happen to be religious.

Still, it does point out that history shows that being religious doesn’t make you stupid, though it could potentially make you ignorant.

I do hate when people act superior to others though, but I'm a hypocrite for saying that.

...you try to convert a Christian, but they are just sooo stubborn! I've tend to noticed that hard core Christians are really stubborn?
