You could be. Some of the bible super heroes had pretty long lives I heard! (Or they weren't good at counting).

Hitler was Catholic. The rest were ideologies, just like organised religions.
Atheism...it's a non-thing; a label given by the believers to label something they don't understand: the absence of a belief. It's NOT a belief in something that does not exist. It's lack of belief. Who can spot the nuance?

We all still have that opportunity if we take it.

True.

One of the deepest feminine pleasures is when a man stands full, present, and unreactive in the midst of his woman's emotional storms. When he stays present with her, and loves her through the layers of wildness and closure, then she feels his trustability, and she can relax. -- David Deida, The Way of the Superior Man

Good things come to those who wait...greater things come to those who get off their a$$ and do anything to make it happen.

The one with 72 virgins sounds most enticing so far. But it could be an advertisement trick as I can't really figure out how they have such a high turnover for the virgins, unless everyone is sharing in which case I am not going there. No point of having an STD for eternity.

The thing about getting married at Bellagio is that you're not walking out with much for your spouse to take anyway.

What does it matter that if it's in the name of religion or not? The implication that is made by grouping the religious of today in with holy warriors and such from the brutal past is that they are stained by the sins of those in the past. It is used to criticize good and decent people's beliefs by smearing them with the crimes of others. Atheists wouldn't be bringing those things up all of the time if they weren't using it as an insult. Thus, what's good for the atheists is fair game for the religious. Hitler was Catholic, Stalin was Orthodox, and Mao was Buddhist, until they weren't anymore and directed the mass murder of innocents. So, if the religious are smeared with the past, so should atheists. After all, it's equally unfair, and I'm all for equality.

As for atheism being the absence of a belief, some atheists sure do proselytize as much as a fire and brimstone minister. So, as far as I'm concerned they might as well be an Atheist Minister. As for atheists who simply let threads like this go, allowing the religious to discuss their faith and feelings with each other, what harm are they to anyone? Live and let live is a fine attitude. On the other hand, atheists who feel the desire to step into a religious thread to mock the religious might as well be holy warriors of atheism, as emotion-driven as the most zealous adherent of any religion.

As one who deals with humans and their brains all day long, I've found that there is a "faith center" in most people's brains, and most atheists are no different. They simply fill theirs with something else, and sometimes, it's anti-religion.
