I know this may seem like a bit of an odd question but I’ve been wondering about it for the past few days and for some reason I can’t escape the feeling that it (atheism) would be a rather ‘conservative’ point of view (that is, at least in title), and yet I’m constantly being called a liberal because of my social and political leanings. I'm just wondering what your views are on this.
PS: I’ll be gone for a few days but I will catch up with this thread when I return.
You started it by attacking me personally, not responding to my arguments. (Twice which is why I abandoned civilised debate in your case).
Arguments ? Try ALL of them that myself and several others have tried to explain to you.
Emotional angst ? You really are projecting!
Some reading material for youbefore you attempt to debate again.

I’ve read many of your entries on here and I know very well that what Meddlesome and others have been saying is true. The way you express yourself is with a hyper inflated sense of ego. Case in point, your statement of “Because I make more sense than you guys can handle personally”, comes off as excessively arrogant. Had you said anything like that in the presence of the person you’d probably receive a black eye. These are people here, not minions, troglodytes or fools.
I should also point out that ‘you make sense to you’, the object of debate is to persuade on a level that allows your opponent the opportunity to realize the superiority of the point you’re trying to convey. You can’t just say “my point’s gonna be superior” say a bunch of crap and expect everyone to fall supine to your sharp wit, especially if you’re the only one who truly understands the intention of your statement. If your intended audience only comes away with a feeling like they’ve been talked down to then you’re probably not communicating your point very well, unless condescension is your original intent.
And really, you do sound condescending.
Thanks David :) Well Stated IMHO.

As if me being superior to you guys can, in any way, be objectified~ Arrogance abounds!!!
PARDON the use of the word 'faggot,' its not my intent to use that slur, I just can't find such an appropriate picture without it~ Its meant to be satirical, not to be offensive. My apologies (but I'm still posting it~ we're all adults here [at least physically])
