    Don't read into that. Unless you banned someone, I don't believe for a second that you were the source of any... complications...

    ROFL! I wonder what religion(s) they belong to.

    It is *so* difficult to tell the zealots apart from each other... ;)

    I like the bumper sticker.

    Frankly I have no need to prop up any insecurities. And I still see atheism as fulfilling the same psychological memetic function that religion does.

    I agree. I merely differ in the understanding of how it all relates to the total of reality, seen and unseen.

    And so it begins?

    Obviously without the presence of tone, It is hard to read text... But, to me that sounds like you know....

    You have rights to gather and organise kissing Allahs bottom. Or YHWH's or whoever the pagan wood fairy of pixies or whatever the pagans are into.... Why "so it begins" for people who don't buy into all that hocus pocus bs? They have their -rights- to gather and organise too! Everyone is free to organise! :D Well... Most... Nazi's and the Mob... And so on... And people in white hoods... That doesn't seem to be acceptable... But then again.... Never mind.. Different topic for another day.

    At one time, atheists could claim to somehow, mystically and mysteriously, be different in their religion from all the other religions. Now, it appears, the atheists wish to simply embrace all the trappings of religion as well as its fundamental psychological underpinnings.

    It's so tempting to call Atheism a religion. I can understand your desire to make it one.

    But is it a religion to merely think, "I don't believe in your God"?

    Can you be a religion without a canon, tenets, a hierarchy of elders or clergy, or leader?

    If you think atheism is a religion, does that mean you'll support my qualifying for tax exempt status as religions today enjoy?

    Organized atheism is better than organized anarchy. :p

    It seems logical. Like an organized general humanitarian effort without God getting all the credit. Doesn't sound like it'll hurt. Might do some good...

    *shrugs shoulders* Meh, what's the big deal?
