LittlePig replied to Jennifer W's discussion Have you ever converted someone to Atheism?`
"It's not an opinion because it's the truth? One more data point for the theory that Atheists are not inherently more reasonable than the nominal opposites they tend to mock. Cheers."

LittlePig replied to Jordan's discussion How do I deal with theistic professors/teachers?
"To play devil's advocate for a moment, that's how it feels for a lot of fundamentalist kids who walk into a biology or anthropology class. And that feeling of indignation is what burns behind all the anti-Evolution efforts from people who…"

"Me: "Does asparagus have gods?" You: "I think your asparagus does." ??? But maybe you were intending a "yo mama" style accusation that I am a theist. I can't read between your evasive lines, but the evasions…"

"If you think my asparagus has gods, then does that mean you believe gods exist? If not, what did you mean?"

"Do you mean that I'm a god? (Well, that is what women say.) If that is your belief, does that not make you a theist?"

LittlePig replied to Jennifer W's discussion Have you ever converted someone to Atheism?`
"Does asparagus have gods? My point is that atheism also is not the default position. Babies are incapable of that kind of position, as are rocks, asparagus, dogs, and the brain-dead. When the greeks said 'godless,' I don't think they…"

LittlePig replied to Jennifer W's discussion Have you ever converted someone to Atheism?`
"And if you understood my argument against your definition of 'atheist,' then you'd understand why the response 'Asparagus isn't sentient. No thought process' doesn't lend support to your definition. It's not…"

LittlePig replied to Jennifer W's discussion Have you ever converted someone to Atheism?`
"@NoSacredCow: I'd say the difference you've missed is that I answered the objections. Seeing as how you've already concluded that atheist asparagus is ridiculous, are you going to show us how you got there? If all that was required…"

LittlePig replied to Jennifer W's discussion Have you ever converted someone to Atheism?`
"@NoSacredCow: It wasn't an analogy. It was the consistent application of an overly coarse definition, the same one you try to use to give a questionable 'natural state' legitimacy to atheism. And I'm not a theist. If I had to…"

"The silliness is in claiming that babies are atheists. You just aren't willing to deal with it in all its silly glory."

LittlePig replied to Jennifer W's discussion Have you ever converted someone to Atheism?`
"I don't think a salesman invented the idea of gods. I suspect people have always had wild dreams and bad mushrooms and bumps in the night that confuse the imagination with reality. The politicians and hucksters may have made good use of memes…"

LittlePig replied to Jennifer W's discussion Have you ever converted someone to Atheism?`
"I don't mean to be overly nit-picky, but is your stalk of asparagus an atheist? Why or why not? No brain, no belief. You may not know of someone's particular concept of a god until they share it with you, but obviously the first…"

LittlePig replied to Jennifer W's discussion Have you ever converted someone to Atheism?`
"Actually, we are all born ignorant, quasi-irrational, and probably predisposed toward magical thinking. And that's the first step down religion road. Defining atheism seems simple, but it presumes a human with the ability to believe in theist…"

LittlePig replied to Jennifer W's discussion Have you ever converted someone to Atheism?`
"I think people tend to convert themselves in both directions and only respond to proselytizing if they already have the buyer's itch. But the more radical conversions require extreme emotional and/or rational circumstances. Atheists usually…"

Welcome to Atheist Nexus with its thousands of good friends.

Try joining groups like the busy discussion group ORIGINS (Origins: Universe, Life, Humans, Evolution, Religion..... ).

I have been running a long discussion (over 50 posts) there about being "Proud to be Atheist (i.e. a non-believer of the untrue god-beliefs of others) " because we all hold the intellectual high ground over the nonsense of the irrational, superstitious god believers.
