No one is going to take you seriously, based on what you've told us already.

@cristian_gavrilescu:

@cristian_gavrilescu: "illogical atheism" ??????????

Okay, I am really confused. How can "atheism" be illogical when it makes no claims? A person who does not believe in a god is being illogical? Is that your claim? Can you demonstrate it?

"only faith can do that." ( I assume you mean, only faith can get you to believe in god.) Isn't this the exact same message of all religions on the planet? Don't Muslims have "faith" in the Holy Quaran? How does "faith" lead us to anything? Faith is not a path to god, truth, or anything else.

Why are you on this "Darwin" kick? "It's WRONG!" Evolution is a stupid idea. Do you have any evidence at all for a magical being who can mold clay into human form, blow on it, and create a living human being? I WOULD DEARLY LOVE TO SEE YOUR EVIDENCE.

@cristian_gavrilescu: And

@cristian_gavrilescu: And then explain what in the fuck you think it has to do with your silly God idea. Why in the fuck would you bring up "evolution" on an atheist site? How does that make sense to you?

“Illogical atheism”....lol

“Illogical atheism”....lol

Fuck that’s funny! Maybe an illogical atheist in a certain area of thought or life decision making...but WOW - the whole organization?!?!? Amazing!

And this coming from a duffus who can’t “show” his god for “us” to “see”.

Its remarkable, but whenever

Its remarkable, but whenever creationists open their mouths about evolution, or science in general, they are woefully ill-informed, their ignorance is startling, and I mean every fucking single time, no exceptions.

No wonder creationists are constantly trying introduce their risible unevidenced superstition into education of children, get em young , and keep em dumb, should be their motto.

It's heartbreaking, it really is.

OK, it's time: I'm calling

OK, it's time: I'm calling troll.

OR perhaps I'm just naive after Johan. Two nut jobs in succession? What are the odds? He's certainly got you all jumping through hoops with the predictable reactions. (and me with my usual dummy spit)

Yeah, I'm aware I'm arguing from incredulity. BUT given the depth of this bloke's ignorance and hubris, it seems unlikely this is his first dance with atheists.

OR perhaps his agenda is to be ridiculed so he can feel suitably martyred ?

That l leaves me with a slimy little troll or just another disingenuous apologist wearing a 'kick me' or even a "please don't kick me " sign. In either case, he's gonna get kicked. Quite sad really.

Third option is to take him on face value. I suppose it's possible he's really as pig ignorant and arrogant as he presents.

--and Tin-man, Grinseed and Sheldon, thank you all from the bottom of my bottom.

Can't see me bothering with Neruda. So far he's spent most of his time here attacking me,others and the forum in general .

Has also so far presented himself as an annoying little twat who broke my irony meter.

Given the volume of vapid

@Neruda

Given the volume of vapid theist trolls scooting through here of late, we should all be a bit cranky...

I for one am often "fit to be tied" at the endless repetition of superstitious woo woo we take the time to answer on here.

Hopefully it rarely shows in my posts, as I tend to take a break and try again. Though my patience has been tested a few times, and if someone were to judge me solely on one of those occasions I'd not come across very well.

Personally I'm not easily offended, even by petty insult, and though its little to brag about, I can give as good as I get if it comes to that.

I don't want to be condescending, but it helps if you chill a little, especially until you get to know whose who and what's what.

So it would seem, Neruda does appear to be trolling, we seem to be infested them lately. Fair play to cranky for nailing another troll right from the get go, kudos to him.

@ Neruda

What freaking hierarchy are you pissing on about?
No one mentioned hierarchy or privileges of seniority. You're having a paranoid rage episode over what you think you read.

Whether you like it or not, china, a lot of people have been contributing constructively to this web site for many years. There has been an enormous amount of useful information shared here and close connections and friendships have been forged, atheist and theist. Tough shit if you think you are victim to a united response against your rabid insults of a respected member who was rightfully engaging his rights on this forum. We care more about the cohesion of our association than your precious criticisms about our unified community.

Like any republic, everyone here, visitors, entrenched theists, and even suspected trolls, all have rights AND responsibilities. We respect those responsibilities and demand others do as well to maintain and benefit from the activities here. We also have, courtesy of the founder of the Atheist Republic, a set of rules that have served us well and you will find them on the right hand side of your screen on any page.
Yep rules! Who'd a thought atheists would want rules? You might have been thinking about the Atheist Anarchy, but that site shut down yonks ago due to a lack of interest and basic cohesion. You'll note no rules against swearing or calling out trolls.

Forum Guidelines
1.No trolling
2.No bullying
3.No disclosure of someone else's personal info
4.No spamming
5.No unrelated topics
6.No scams
7.No racism
8.No homophobic, or sexist comments
9.No non-English posts
10.No links to gory pictures or harmful websites
11.No threats of harm
12.No advertising or self-promotion

And I draw your attention to the introduction to the Atheist Forums, written by the founder of AR, which you can find at the head of that page, that reads:

"For many atheists around the world, online forums and discussion groups are one of the few ways to connect with others who share their views. Our worldwide atheist forum provides a lively place for debate, support and conversation. We encourage discussion about any and all topics as long as it abides by our forum guidelines. You can ask questions, request input, present a challenging topic for debate or share an idea. We hope you will join our existing and growing community of atheists. Our forum is also a great place to chat, make new friends and even share ideas with the Atheist Republic team."

In short, this is not a 24/7 theological bar room brawl. If it all sounds too much like a boy scout troop, again tough shit. It has served us well.

By all means remain and rant and rave all you like, but you can't now possibly think anyone here would give a flying fuck about your opinions on "science, reason and facts" after your hilarious and revealing hissyfit about all us dick-sucking-moronic-church-going atheists. Nice start champ. You could just start over and join in discussions. No-one will mind, fewer will care, unless you go off your rocker again. Our moderators are the best on the internet.

Just pull your head in and relax. Read, learn, share and dispute.

Well, at least this is a bit different having an atheist being the complete ahole. Welcome Neruda, here's one hoping your name will soon be forgotten here.

@New Skeptic: Agreed. It's

@New Skeptic: Agreed. It's sad that there are also ignorant atheists. I generally attribute it to too much hate and not enough reason. "Mommy made them go to church and now they are rebelling." or its just part of the whole "bad boy" syndrome. "Look at me, look at me, look at me... I'm different! I hate religion!"
Hopefully it is a developmental stage and it can be surpassed.
