Since it seems as timely as it did a few months ago, I'm reposting this breakdown of Atheists.
What think ye, freethinkers?
I've been thinking about the many different kinds of freethinkers/atheists/non-theists I run into. Here is my breakdown of the sectarians in the naturalistic "community." I hope this starts a healthy, productive, creative discussion!
A: Angry, aggressive and obsessed with anything anti (a, a, a, non, un. . .)
T: Thoughtful, thinkers and tend toward positive conversations and mutual learning
H: Humanistic; community-centered; socially conscious and good-hearted
E: Ethically directed; activist orientation
I: Inquisitive; investigative; open to the questions without firm, defended answers
S: Spiritually sensitive; use the "soul" and "spirit" words alot
T: Theologically trained; former religious leaders
S: Scientific-focus; skeptical; incisive and theoretical
And, sauntering over, around and through all these congregates are the Naturalists, Freethinkers and no-particular-bone-to-pick and let's-figure-out-how-to-work-together kinds of people
