Hello Liska Liv
Welcome to this friendly site and freethinkers who recognise that fictional gods and cunning religions continue to deceive and control vulnerable people including defenceless children. How tragic and inexcusable it is too that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and longer.
"Thanks so much for the welcome. I've been searching for a place where I can share opinions and such without a bunch of vicious rhetoric. I'm an atheist and my children are too. We don't have anything against religious people, we just don't understand them."
Uh, Liska, since when are atheists known for not making vicious rhetoric? They do it all the time. Atheist Princess does the same, it's all over the Internet, youtube, yahoo answers, answer bag, in countless books and journals. What are you talking about? So this, from atheist princess, isn't vicious rhetoric, this description she posted on Laci Green's video "Jesus will cum again",
"LMAO@ the jesus freaks! Grow up. Don't you know? Fairytales are for children! Please get a fundamental grasp on science, philosophy, metaphysics, and log[ic]"?
So that's not vicious rhetoric Liska, or am I magically not seeing the evidence to back up what Atheist Princess said? What about what Laci Green said for her video title? What about Laci Green's conniving description for it:
"My opinion based on science, reason, logic, rationale, and the undiscriminating pursuit of truth. What's yours based on? ;)
The good things are done by god, and the bad things just....happen. LOL...cute. :|"
So that wasn't rhetoric? Oh, let me guess: "vicious rhetoric" is when a theist corrects you, or an atheist points out yours. You, are the one who makes vicious rhetoric. You are the one making statements without evidence and who stereotypes theists. Vicious isn't simply, "You atheists are stupid." or "I hate you you jerk." It's what you feel in your heart and what you mean behind whatever you say.
