[QUOTE=Zathros;2170015]Atheism is a belief system. It is a religion. They are religious in their dogma. If you believe in nothing then you believe. If you have to proselytize your belief you make the point further. A person who truly did not not believe would not be bothered. How can you be bothered by something that does not exists. What is really going on is they wish to interfere with the freedom of religious expression and freedom of worship. Their attacks on the institutions validate the same institutions as they lend credence to that which they can not understand and cannot shout down. [/QUOTE]
I don’t care about any religion. They’re just different instruction manuals for a good life, atheists have lost the plot. Separate the message from the chaff. Blowing crap up, or forming a subversive organization to over take the government is just primal quest for power, and should be actively discouraged as it’s detrimental to everyone.
If atheists want company, I suggest they stop being a bunch of grumpy old bastards and join in the festivities, religion or not.
Here’s a summary of every religion, including buddhism which is godless.
[B]Be excellent to eachother.
Strive to improve yourself.
And have a Merry Christmas, Xmas, or Hanuka, Corporate Retail Money Grab Festival, or whatever floats your boat.
