Revek: A true troll instinctively know what will evoke a response from another. Every thing I said in this thread was sincere. I believe that everything is at its best when it is in balance. Atheist and theist and I have called myself both with sincerity are the easiest to troll. By troll? I mean to invoke their passionate disagreement in hope I can show how they are both wrong. You however recognize that both arguments are the same and equal. You do not however recognize the truth that the guy in the middle while equally sincere is just as unfortunately equal. I have no doubt that most people are sincere in their beliefs and express them as such. I just want everyone to understand that no matter what they should tolerate others if the expect to be tolerated..

I think what we need is a Santa-bot that murders anybody who deliberately acts like an asshole during the month of December.

Putting up displays to make Christians feel like shiat? .50 cal to the face
Passive-aggressive biatchiness to your son-in-law because he's not a billionaire hedge-fund manager? Garroted while checking on the turkey
Not waving at the guy for letting you into traffic? A-10 strafing run

I want to see forced smiles and warm-wishes through gritted teeth and a palpable sense of terror at any social contact for fear of getting gakked because you inadvertently slipped back into being an asshole before Jan 1.

Oh yes, so petty and vindictive, what with following the law, asking that the law be equally applied to all, and all that. Not like those kind, law-abiding Christians who vandalized the atheist displays, causing the city to pass the blanket ban, thus making it so no one could use public property for their displays. Those people are above reproach.


Well, if the non believers would only be content with their second class status, we'd have none of these problems.

I have no problem with tasteful and respectful holiday displays from any religion or group.


Neither do I. As long as they aren't on government property.

Yeah, I'll tell you... what would really get my dander up is if I couldn't tell who believed in gods and who didn't. If all theists kept that shiat secret, and only prayed silently and privately?... man, that would drive me nuts. I'd feel like there were ninja-believers all around me, all the time. Shoot, I'd probably have to start believing in Jesus myself, I'd be so mad. Please Xians, continue to behave like whiny children every time someone challenges your infringement on the Establishment Clause, so I can continue hating the God that I secretly believe in deep down...

As a Christian, I think the right decision was made. There should be nothing allowed on public property. In fact, I can't remember the last time I saw a nativity scene on public property in and around where I live.

Really though, relax everyone. God is just creating these situations to sort it all out and draw out the believers and non-believers for Armageddon which he has to get done on the 21st of December because he doesn't want to make the Mayans look bad because they were righteous God fearing people..or something

I LIKE the lottery idea in the article. Random chance for limited space = nondiscrimination for Constitutional purposes.

Personally, I'm happy that there was a clustering if we assume all display applications can be placed into binary choices (Pro-theist & Anti-theist). A perfect distribution proportional to the entrants is a major red flag for a small scale, limited trial data run. A lopsided skewing shows randomness, and randomness is fair.

For example?

Revek: I just simply don't care how wrong you are about the tendency of atheist to be just as uncompromising in their quest to be... Well assholes

When are atheists uncompromising?

When they demand that the Constitution be applied equally to all groups? When they fight to keep "Intelligent Design" out of science textbooks? When, like one guy sues over "In God We Trust" on the money? OK, that guy's an ass, but I happen to agree it doesn't belong there. Nevertheless, that is like ONE guy. Unless he's your neighbor or a relative, you can easily ignore the whole thing.

What exactly do atheists do but talk on a TV that you can turn off, and write books you don't have to buy, and chat in threads that you don't have to read?

I always thought "E Pluribus Unum" made more sense on the money of a nation devoted to the theory of inclusion.
