I joined Atheist Republic so that I could read, and hopefully learn from, the views of other atheists - so that I could discuss their views and balance them against my own. I have no real interest in debating with theists, because it simply isn't possible to debate in any truly meaningful way with people who either have no conception of logic, or who deliberately ignore it . Sometimes, I've found that the posts of theists make me so angry that I lose sight of that original objective. I have said, on this website, that the best answer to religious fervour is ridicule, but the experience of sharing space with you guys suggests to me that there's a better way. If we want this site to be chiefly for atheists to discuss matters between themselves, a better tactic might be to simply ignore the rants of theists altogether. Ignore their posts as being of no value. If they start a thread, don't post on it. I can't think of anything that would piss them off more than that.
