Nick Bottom commented on Jonathan Tweet's blog post Why Atheist Are Jerks
"I don't think atheists are jerks, we just tell it like it is, and a lot of people simply don't want to hear the truth spoken because it makes them uncomfortable—so theists will often see atheists as jerks because we make them…"

"Hard-core entusiasts will sometimes call it "SF" for "speculative fiction" rather than "sci-fi." And yes, count me among the enthusiasts. It has to be well-written, though. There's too much SF junk out there, but…"

Nick Bottom commented on Ruth Anthony-Gardner's group Hang With Friends
"I agree with you about praying out loud in restaurants. Most religious people I know will do a quick little mumble under their breath when dining out, rather than a full-blown prayer extravaganza. I don't mind those."

About Me:
Most people are surprised (and concerned) when I tell them I am an atheist, which is why I don't bring up the topic too often.
