"John, I think this is a problem of grammar. I visited Jencarlene's Atheist Nexus and she has expressed much frustration at being bashed theists. I think she meant that as an atheist she has as much right to express herself as a theist. Her…"

You are welcome. What inspired me was a discussion I had with an atheist who claims to follow Taoism as a "philosophy."
Wouldn't pantheism and paganism qualify?

It's no problem - we're mostly all nerds here and can get bogged down trying to define terms.

Thanks for the add BilLee. Yeah, you get better at this in time. I was inexperienced in social networking when I first joined. I've learned to be more tactful, more diplomatic, and rerfrain from saying certain things. It takes some practice.
