Spokesperson for atheists was murdered?

thirdleg - American Atheists are the Westboro Baptists of atheism.

In fact, they are much closer to being believers than they are to being genuine atheists.

How are they closer to believers?

Why are you so obsessed with atheists? Phone Post

He thinks there is actually an intelligent defense of religiosity, and he yearns to surprise atheists with clever and different ways of approaching the subject.

Which inevitably ends with him getting his shit pushed in for a few days, after which the cycle begins anew.

lol not really. The correct answer is that it does interest me and I'm just killing time making conversation. I mean, why is thirdleg obsessed with dicks? He's not, it's just one of his interests.

thirdleg - "An atheist loves his fellow man instead of god."

Unnecessary belief. You can be an atheists and hate any number of people you.

"An atheist believes that heaven is something for which we should work now – here on earth for all men together to enjoy."

Unnecessary belief. We don't have to do anything, ever.

"An atheist believes that he can get no help through prayer but that he must find in himself the inner conviction and strength to meet life, to grapple with it, to subdue it, and enjoy it."

Or he could be weak and pump himself full of mind-altering substances or repress it. This has nothing to do with atheism. It's just an idea some bitch things is good.

"An atheist believes that only in a knowledge of himself and a knowledge of his fellow man can he find the understanding that will help to a life of fulfillment."

Not even sure what this means exactly. These are very metaphysical concepts not grounded in any genuine necessity.

"He seeks to know himself and his fellow man rather than to know a god."

Or he doesn't seek anything.

"An atheist believes that a hospital should be built instead of a church."

If he prays at the alter of Public Health.

"An atheist believes that a deed must be done instead of a prayer said."

Or neither.

"An atheist strives for involvement in life and not escape into death."

Or he isolates himself from the world. Or he doesn't think about it whatsoever.

"He wants disease conquered, poverty vanquished, war eliminated."

Hardly. Atheists can be greedy and violent, too.

"He wants man to understand and love man."


"He wants an ethical way of life."

Depending on what this means, hell NO. Certainly not in the sense that the author intends it.

"He believes that we cannot rely on a god or channel action into prayer nor hope for an end of troubles in a hereafter."

That's probably the only belief that's a natural outgrowth of atheism.

"He believes that we are our brother's keepers and are keepers of our own lives; that we are responsible persons and the job is here and the time is now."

Hell no.

Yeah that's a very liberal description on her part...
