muck4doo: Because anti-absurdville tends to go in their own absurdville directions as well. Remember when that cross got stolen off the cemetery on some obscure California mountain?
heap: did i miss somacondra getting the wand passed to him by bevets, or something?muck4doo: Because anti-absurdville tends to go in their own absurdville directions as well. Remember when that cross got stolen off the cemetery on some obscure California mountain?people do goofy shiat, that's kinda what we're good at. it doesn't take an ethos to be a goofy bastard, and having an ethos doesn't negate being a goofy bastard.that really doesn't have anything to do with what i was talking about, tho.
muck4doo: Darth_Lukecash: Weaver95: Atheists have church? um...doesn't that kind of defeat the point of being an atheist?I think that atheists are getting organized as a group. More political power that way. Once crowds firms with a voice , the leaders have to notice.Organized non-stamp collectors?
Peter von Nostrand: Atheists, please quit trolling the fundies
Somacandra: thamike: Everything about organized atheism defeats the purpose of being an atheist.Being an "atheist" has no purpose by definition. Modern Western Atheism has no content--its a concept entirely founded on negating a complete strawman of a Protestant concept of religion. If instead you're going to talk about Humanism or an actual ethos of some kind, then social and ethical organizations have long been part of this tradition in Europe and the United States. Atheism does not mean non-religious: many Buddhists and Jains are 'atheists' but are nonetheless quite religious people.
heap: muck4doo:Organized non-stamp collectors?if philatelist groups were advocating mandatory and tax payer funded stamp activities, why wouldn't it make sense for those who weren't into stamps to have a voice in the conversation?
hubiestubert: . In this, I think that Somacandra is right to make the distinction. It isn't what you believe, but rather what you do with what you believe.
cameroncrazy1984: thamike: Everything about organized atheism defeats the purpose of being an atheist.I think you have atheism confused with anarchism.
Peter von Nostrand: This shiat is getting old. Fundies, please stop trying to force your religion on everyone. Atheists, please quit trolling the fundies
Princess Ryans Knickers: Dear God,What created you and what are you made out of? Also, who created whoever created you?
Four Horsemen of the Domestic Dispute: Peter von Nostrand: This shiat is getting old. Fundies, please stop trying to force your religion on everyone. Atheists, please quit trolling the fundiesSome of us enjoy.
Spanky_McFarksalot: for a not religion they sure do act like one
thamike: Weaver95: Atheists have church? um...doesn't that kind of defeat the point of being an atheist?Everything about organized atheism defeats the purpose of being an atheist. Now I have to go around with some sort of absurd hyphenated clarification because of these bozos.
Aar1012: Atheists have camps?
Lsherm: FloydA:I find this stereotypical summation, typical of liberal bigotry, amusingly ironic.Please, you two, tell us more about how "those people" think. Make sure to fluff yourselves up as the enlightened class at the same time. Extra bonus points for ridiculous generalizations and/or complete ignorance baout the people you are criticizing.

FloydA: thamike: Atheist Church? What, like Brazzers?[i105.photobucket.com image 500x375]What an atheist church might look like.
GAT_00: Aar1012: Atheists have camps?Only ones we put Christians in. Uhh...I mean, they're re-education camps. No, wait, I'm not supposed to say that either. Uhh...knowledge camps! That's it.
g4lt: FloydA: thamike: Atheist Church? What, like Brazzers?[i105.photobucket.com image 500x375]What an atheist church might look like.[www.reverie.com image 850x676]I prefer the Church of the Inner Spring
nerftaig: Well, this was the most condescending article I've read in a long time. I feel like theists, atheists, and even deists can agree that the author is a sanctimonious coont.
Farking Canuck: If some atheists keep organizing like this I am going to have to get some identifier to make it clear that I am not affiliated.Maybe "Chaos Atheist" - I like that.
susler: I found it interesting that he was made uncomfortable by the press taking pictures and recordingThe press was there catching interviews. (They also recorded the entire service along with the attendees to a point that it made it uncomfortable).Yet he had no issue taking his own pictures covertlyI surreptitiously wandered around taking photos of the event. I was, after all, running a clandestine intel-gathering mission behind enemy lines.At least the press was aboveboard and didn't sneak around like he did.Also his use of the term enemy should put to rest any thought or even hint that he was there with even a slightly open mind.The guy's an asswipe no matter which side he's on of any debate.
maxheck: I will take exception to your idea that the Christ isn't the center of worship... I'm pretty sure there are a few people who hang on his words and put his picture up everywhere. As an outsider, I am pretty sure that the Christ was considered a leader of his flock.
Oznog: FloydA: thamike: Atheist Church? What, like Brazzers?[i105.photobucket.com image 500x375]What an atheist church might look like.An atheist place to congregate and seek higher learning?That's called a "school". AN ATHEIST CHURCH IS A SCHOOL!/unless it's a Catholic school//or a public school in Arkansas///or Tennessee////or Texas
hubiestubert: I guess they'd get a kick out of Unitarians' Atheist vs Theists softball games then...
