Atheist circle-jerk: The thread.

He's an agnostic, so he's superior to us.

I don't remember saying I was an agnostic though.

If you are not in the circle, what are you here for-- to watch? Yech.  :P

Why I'm here to study wild atheists in their natural habitat.

^^^Some of us are not "out" as atheists IRL because it would cause too much trouble. Trouble that you trivialize. There are people here who could lose their jobs or cause a rift in their family if they said they did not believe in god. And you think that is "whining".

You do realize that most of us spend our time around religious people who we love and respect-- our family, friends, neighbors and coworkers. This forum is a release for many of us, a place where we can discuss what we cannot IRL.  Many of us do not even talk much about religion or atheism outside of this forum. You understand that, don't you?

No, you are too far above us.  :P

I agree with what Greta Christina and others have said about religious folks. Religious ideas get a free pass-- it is the only perspective that nobody can publicly criticize on the merits. God said it, I believe it, that settles it. And that is supposed to be that. 

Atheism is a religion, but instead of worshipping a god, you worship your own ego.  Instead of rules or commandmants, your ego simply demands that you stroke it every day.  Instead of going to church to worship god, you go onto online forums to worship your egos.

Sounds about right  ;)

God on the money, god in the pledge, crosses by the road where an accident has been, family members wanting us to join them in asking their imaginary friend for favors, or to join in thanking their imaginary friend for food, being lectured at and called names at funerals of relatives, seeing billboards and posters telling us we are bad people, having to tell veiled lies about our [lack of] belief in order to be accepted as a normal nice human, having to participate in religious holidays and other activities at work or with family, having religious literature left on the doorstep, being expected to sing religious songs at weddings, and on and on.

Any expression of negativity is met with incredulousness--why do you care what other people believe?

You poor oppressed atheists :'(

I wonder why you're having trouble fitting in.  Who wouldn't want to befriend someone who can't stop talking about how much smarter and more moral they are than everyone else?

And we don't remember calling ourselves superior to anyone yet you state that's what we think based on what...? We call ourselves atheists?

Idiotic.

I maintain that many "agnostics" are scared agnostic atheists. They do not want to commit to the fact that they do not believe there are any gods. They don't really straddle an imaginary fence between believing in god and not believing. Like halfway believing?  I want to meet a real on the fence agnostic who goes to say, Baptist or Mormon religious services every other Sunday, and worships Satan (or whatever atheists are supposed to do &)) on the off days.

Marvin is, of course, the exception. He does worship Satan. Only he does it when he looks in the mirror.  ;D

I actually said I wasn't superior and never stated I was.

Which just confirms my assertion that he has a superiority complex.
