I don't smoke, but it is a personal choice that I made. It has nothing to do with atheism. Lots of those lying christians smoke and tell you that Jebus took away their habit.
Non smoking/drugging atheist here, not even fond of drinking much.
Shame that we have that image, though: Oh they're not religious, therefore they must be hedonists!
I am sorry. But I really don't understand at all what you are going on about, except your bemoaning your dificulties finding a suitable female atheist mate.
Yeah, I imagine that is rough. I remember long ago finding it difficult to find a suitable female partner , And at t time I was not even restricting my search to nontheists women's. Eliminating 90% of potential prospects would make things way more difficult I imagine.
Otherwise you seem to be wondering why some people seem to enjoy doing enjoyable activities. Its because they enjoy doing so. Why wouldn't we. Its like asking why people have sex or eat ice cream.
Well, I don't smoke or break the law. Trust me, you don't need a religious girlfriend. She'll try to "reform" you back to church.
Your post seems to suggest that all female atheists smoke and break law by smoking pot.
Where are all the genuine atheists?
I'm not sure where ALL of them are, but there are probably a couple of them being raped by a priest in your local church right now.
Why do they have to smoke?
They don't all smoke.
Why do they break the law and smoke pot?
They don't. There are far more theistic pot smokers than atheist, that is just plain statistics.
I'm afraid I'll have to have a religious girlfriend.
Beggars can't be choosers, bub.
I have noticed this around a bit - new atheists making other atheists leap over some bar of what they deem acceptable. I do not think posing the question this way necessarily means this person is a theist. Doesn't accusing him of that, make us guilty of the same bar jumping test he is putting his potential mates through? (how can he be irrational and a bit of a dick?? must be a theist)
A few years ago I was in ethically non-monogamous relationship. When I declared myself as such, quite a few men decided that it meant that I was not allowed to reject them. What do you mean you don't want to go for coffee? You are available!!! (yeah, but not for YOU).
This person might have had the same view. Atheist females - why not all ready, willing and able, why not complying with my particular random rules?? screw this place he thinks and leaves.
I was in ethically non-monogamous relationship .... quite a few men decided that it meant that I was not allowed to reject them.
Ugh!!!! Talk about them seeing women as "property"!
And shades of Silverberg's The Worlds Inside; in that SF dystopia, nobody, regardless of gender, was allowed to reject a sexual advance. (That law was intended to reduce stress among the overcrowded population.) A citizen of that world was everyone's slave.
I agree Kelly.
I can't tell you that weed isn't harmful, but can say that I smoked it years ago, and even today all I have to do is breath it to get high. Bacon and eggs might be harmful, but it depends on who's bandwagon public opinion is on today. Does weed have medicinal properties? Certainly. The plant has been around almost forever and someone wants to tell you that you can't grow it or smoke it. That is rediculous!
I'm a strong/positive atheist, I oppose all belief in spirituality or the supernatural, and I don't smoke anything, drink, or do other drugs.
