Well, the word for heaven in the earlier Greek is Uranus, so technically it does exist.

Might be kind of tricky getting there when you die, though.

"We like to have a gathering place for our members, people that want to chat, get to know each other, they can come do that on any Saturday"

Atheist 1: If you're in Heaven, and you know there are people in Hell who are, like, burning for an eternity... and you don't even throw, like, a bucket of water down there or something, wouldn't that mean you deserve to go to Hell?
Atheist 2: Dude... mind blown. Shiat, I gotta go, I have work on Sunday.

An angry atheist with a lawyer is one of the most powerful persons in America.

Atheism's track record makes the Spanish Inquisition seem like Disneyland by comparison.

I bet Charles Darwin never understood this: If the world could be described as truly survival-of-the-fittest, why would people collectively be stricken with the spirit of generosity in December? It is Christ who empowers every act of goodwill toward men in our otherwise fallen hearts.

Let's think this through: Without God as an objective standard, who's to say what's wrong and what's right?

Many on the left see faith and family as oppressive, but the right sees them as indispensable.

The logical result of atheism, a result we have seen right in front of our eyes in one of the world's oldest and proudest nations, is severe moral decay.

There are few things that anger a secular liberal atheist more than a horizontal plank intersecting a vertical plank - a cross - on public land.

The war on Christmas is the tip of the spear in a larger battle to secularize our culture, and make true religious freedom a thing of America's past.

Once again atheists attempt to advance the absurd notion that an omnipotent, omniscient, eternal being did not create the entirety of the universe specifically for the benefit of one species of billions on one planet of billions in one solar system of billions in one galaxy of billions, that this being did not set down specific and defined rules that have been absolutely and correctly discerned by members of a goat-herding tribe several thousand years ago, that this being does not demand blood sacrifice for violation of these rules, that this being did not manifest itself as a human and allow itself to be executed as a substitute blood sacrifice applicable only to humans who explicitly believe that the manifestation and execution occurred and that human consciousness survives brain activity and that those who die will be judged for their behaviours in life, with only those who accepted that aforementioned blood sacrifice substitute being found worthy of an eternity in companionship with the eternal being while the rest are condemned to eternal, unending torment for their violation of the rules set down purely out of love of creation.

I cannot understand why anyone fails to realise that lacking belief in the above requires far greater faith than does recognizing the above to be entirely true.

It blows my mind that there would be an atheist camp. humans just feel the need to associate worth one tribe our an other.

What you want is a philosophy club if you want to talk about the universe. They have made this into a religion, underscoring just how much humans have evolved to have affinities for groups like religions. Maybe this was a prank?

At least the religious people make sense, they either feel that they need to keep us out of hell, or they feel under compulsion from God to spread the word. Atheists just don't seem to need recruitment fairs, most people come to this decision on their own. Besides, having active recruiting efforts just gives the religious Right ammo to use...

The guy in the article used the term "deconvert" and said that deconverting someone away from their beliefs like Creationism was a "joy" for him.

Not really a big fan of preachy people even when they are, as I am, an atheist.  That noted, these guys have every right to spend their free time on the weekend setting up booths beside the hairy fishnuts and evangelicals making their case.

Hobbies are good. Some people knit, I like to post snarky comments on Fark so I'm not judging here.

Looks to me like they're doing what any other social club would do.
They are not interrupting anybody's dinner to sell their god.
Proselytizing is deliberate, offensive behavior.

Very similar, I imagine, to how an evangelical might feel that 'saving' someone is a joy for them.

It would have been nice if early Christians didn't go full retard. And then founded a central church.

A more Taoist philosophy would have fit Christ's teachings much closer.

I usually go out there once every couple of months (my brother lives in San Diego and Balboa Park is a fun place to visit) and see these guys.  They're pretty mild-mannered and non-confrontational.  Likewise for the Christian folks who set up their booth about fifty feet away.  It never fails that some evangelical will set up a soapbox ten feet from the atheist booth to yell out scripture at passers-by.  Not sure if these guys are invited or not but I've never seen any atheists do likewise for the Christians.

There are such things as atheist religions.  Some sects of Buddhism come pretty close iirc.

But these aren't.  They're just social clubs where people are hanging out and messing around.  Basically a less-secretive version of the Freemasons or an extra-large group of drinking buddies with a regular poker game.

// Though, yes, a lot of the details are selected specifically to annoy the religious idiots, it looks like.

"Relax: hell does not exist, or heaven either, enjoy your life."

A soldier named Nobushige came to Hakuin, and asked: "Is there really a paradise and a hell?"
"Who are you?" inquired Hakuin.
"I am a samurai," the warrior replied.
"You, a soldier!" exclaimed Hakuin. "What kind of ruler would have you as his guard? Your face looks like that of a beggar."
Nobushige became so angry that he began to draw his sword, but Hakuin continued: "So you have a sword! Your weapon is probably much too dull to cut off my head."
As Nobushige drew his sword Hakuin remarked: "Here open the gates of hell!"
At these words the samurai, perceiving the master's discipline, sheathed his sword and bowed.
"Here open the gates of paradise," said Hakuin.
