Good for you, Scott. To me violence, or even the threat of violence, ends the discussion.

I always liked the line, "hell is where there is no reason." Violence destroys logical discourse.

Doesn't it perturb you that they acclaim to follow the "Prince of Peace," and yet they're the first to start throwing punches?

Good for you Scott. I don't have the nerve to actually do anything about the idiots with the "Pray to end Abortion" signs outside my work. And I'm REALLY sure I'd get in trouble for it since I work for the municipal government. All I can do is spread the word to others inside and outside City Hall about how stupid it is. Nothing I say to them is going stop them anyway and I think the idiots that actually come out and picket are at least partially looking for attention, so I'd rather not give it to them.

I'm glad you came out of your encounter unscathed. That's exactly the sort of 'group-think' setting where the mob could end up getting out of control and seriously hurting you. I'm glad you plan on being more careful next time. :)

Ravven, I have to disapprove of your “pissing them off.” Just be firm, studious and know what you're talking about. Don't abandon reason because it's our main weapon, no matter how intractable and narrow-minded they are.

I'm reading Dawkins' new book, The Greatest Show on Earth. It's so well presented that it's extremely difficult for anyone to read it and still claim that evolution is just a theory.

It's a fact and as certain as dropping an apple to the ground to prove the Law of Gravity.

He confirms evolution from multiple fronts: the fossil record, embryology, comparative anatomy and the topper, molecular genetics.

If evolution is a fact, then Genesis is nonsense. See what they say to that, okay?

I make a point to spread my evil Atheist agenda on FB everyday. According to my in-laws I have disrespected their family and my husband. He told them they clearly didn't know him because he didn't believe in god and things all that stuff is bullshit and they are all hypocrites. It was AWESOME!! I love pissing them off *they actually have the "a man is nothing without god" viewpoint.* Even though the members in the family without god are doing far better than those "highly favored" folks.
I don't get many comments on FB posts *aside from other Atheist friends* because the few folks who were brave enough to try to "spread the word" and bring me the "truth" stopped when they realized I know their bible, it's history, and the history of their religion better than they do.
But it's still fun to say your god's a d-bag. :)

I just wished I could have spoken to them a little more. They jumped right to violence as soon as they knew I didn't agree with them. Really tolerant huh?
If you ever try to do anything like that cyril, make sure you have an escape. I almost got surrounded by those nuts and they were not looking to talk about anything. They were going to beat me. That was stupid of me to get so close to them by myself, that won't happen again.

Hey Scott, You the man. Keep kicking a__ and taking names. I feel everything you say, I just need some encouragement and courage for that matter to stand with you and take this type of abuse. You and your kind are truly Strong Atheists. There are too few of you people holding the feet of religion to the burning fire of reason. I will strive to make as much of a difference as you have.

So I just got back from the abortion clinic. It was pretty funny actually. Some girl started yelling and saying i was going to face the wrath of jesus christ almighty. I told her I don't believe in fairy tales. Then a guy came up and pushed me and told me my kind was not wanted around here. So I said that he was a delusional bigoted f*ck and all of you self-rightous bastards should leave these poor folks alone. Kind of lost my cool when he pushed me. So he tried to grab me and throw me down but I threw him down in some mud and yelled as I was walking away "You better pray to your lord for help before you come at me again!" Then other people started coming after me so i left. Pretty fun I thought.

Pray for you, I don't think so. Cheer you on, You bet!!!!!!
Comment by scott martins on March 26, 2010 at 4:31pm
I think it needs to happen more often. Just because those loonies outnumber us doesn't mean we shouldn't stick up for our rights. There is an abortion clinic about 20 min. from my house. I'm going there tomorrow morning to let these crack pots know how I feel about them. I can't wait!!!! Hopefully I can post tomorrow about how it went. If you hear a story about how an atheist got his ass beat in Toms River,NJ, then everybody will probably have to wait a little while to hear what happened. Haha. "Pray for me"!!!! lol

@Anachro1

It does get forcefully shoved back every once in awhile:
