But that Christian Priest is cheering, he knows as soon as they get used to the sunday routine they will convert, asking someone to spare time for something that cannot see is 80% of the battle of conversion.
I think this is just some fool who is looking for possible kickbacks when his attenders convert. But seriously to be atheist you believe in ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. Why would you need or feel the urge to conform to having to go to a meet and greet on a Sunday to pull eachother off about the greatness of your ignorance. I'm not saying I hate atheist it's just at the end of the day most of them really aren't athiest (except most scientce people i know) because they still have a belief or thought about an higher power of any sort, so by having faith in something even tho it's not a god you are holding faith for something/someone, being such would be calling the Pagan Sun Worshippers atheist because they were putting their faith into natural order and not a entity.
I'm sorry but having being tortured by the churches to join and that they are the only "REAL RELIGION" untill I have come to my own faith/structures/beliefs hence the reclassification from a 12 year old point of view (f* everything im an atheist) to actually properly thinking and coming to my conclusion of my personal evolution in faith.
It's hard to say atheism exists in this day and age because as much as people deny any higher power we are surrounded by it even to atheists that claim their names in vein as to so be told by the churches, that in a sence is still acknowledging a being called Jesus Christ who at some point is helping you understand whatever you are cursing at. Same could be said for "god damn".
Most will just brush the whole thing and continue their lives which they are more than intitled to, I just hate self labeled claims from a point of view that has no understanding on the concept. But they are entitled to some of the biggest opinions available. To say such a thing then be a complete hippocrite would be like saying you building a Space-Ship that can achieve only the same flight patterns and stats as a normal standard plane, well you are correct because it is technically a space ship but if it never leaves to enter space does it still keep the same classification?
It took me a while to write this whilst at work but have noticed a lot of excuses since this morning let me get this clear with everyone please read the following, because any sub-catergries are not athiesm at all nor can you redefine the meaning to suit you. Take the whole meaning or none.
[ey-thee-ist] Show IPA
a person who denies or disbelieves the existence of a supreme being or beings.
1565–75; < Greek áthe ( os ) godless + -ist
That does not allow everyone permission to start calling themselves agnostics unless you have formed a individual opinion based on your own belief process. It's not an out to make you sound cool. **** if you don't believe in religion or you on the fence about it just say so, I don't believe or I don't have a opinion on it. But don't try give yourself a label to fit in with everyone else, if you so urgently need a label take a class from Paris Hilton and go be useless somewhere else.
