Iggy, I just left a message on the phone #. If you feel like talking you can. I left my # and am looking forward to talking with you.

you have been warned.

anyone that refers to "soviet style tactics" is walking a fine line towards a quick banishment here. I will ban and ban and ban and ban. It has nothing to do with authoritarianism and everything to do with civility. I will not countenance uncivil behavior on this site. If you are truly an atheist, you won't question other's motives for being here.

Iggy is a joke. This guy does not speak for most atheists, and he spreads vicious remarks all over the web.

Orwell IS a troll, but I don't know about Debbie. I know, I work in the jerks building. But Iggy IS a disgrace, and isn't helping anything to use old style Soviet tactics that failed utterly.

The man is a fool.

Debbie and Orwell are toast. I will manage this group by hook or by crook. To all Xtian trolls that attempt to join our group, you are not welcome. This is not a group you can handle intellectually and certainly one that will not tolerate your disruptions.

The billboard is quite amusing. I am not suprised that it is Iggy's idea. You see, around here, he is known as "the little Russian atheist". He is a Russian immigrant who has been here since 1992 or so but has not bothered to become a citizen.

He was raised under the officially atheitic government of the old (now dead) Soviet Union in the 80'2 and 90's and believes that the methods used by that government, including mass ridicule, ad hominems, poster, banners, flyers, etc can be effective in combating religion.

He tried to shut down the blog of the religon editor of the Kansas City Star, Bill Tammeus, by using such tactics, but failed. The archives of his rants are in the December and January (2008) of Bill's blog at the Kansas City Star.

He bragged about this over the the forum of the Heartland Humanists (a Kansas City atheist group) but that forum was itself shut down when they couldn't answer the repeated arguments of a couple of Anti Atheists.

What he has never realized is that his tactics, which he thinks are so successful, failed in the Old Soviet Union and that the Soviet Union ITSELF failed.

Some people just don't get it.

I've been waiting for this group! :)

Bravo for starting a KS group! I'm going to alert the Society of Open-Minded Atheists and Agnostics (SOMA) at KU to this group! I'm sure a lot of people will be interested!
