Title: Atheism is dead, long live atheism
Post by: Ro3bert on December 21, 2013, 10:13:54 PM
4.5B year old atheist here. (cackle, cackle).

I've been an atheist for so long I didn't even know there was a god somewhere in anyone's mind.

I didn't even know the word or what it meant until someone shoved it down my throat and explained I was a pariah. I was devastated for at least a second or two but being Herman the German who is used to hardships and things like that I went back to cackling (I told you I was old).

Yeah, I'm being a bit reverent here but sometimes I just can't help myself. I inhabit another atheist forum and see  so much drivel and nonsensical explanations and pure malarkey not to mention horrible attempts to justify or refute atheism or theism or another ism. Still it is sometimes fun to follow some threads to see what sort of poppycock comes of them.

Don't get me wrong at times I can be very serious knowing someone somewhere will throw a monkey wrench in my logic seriously or in jest.

In any case I'm new here. It's time for bed now (22:07 GMT -5). Be back in the AM.

Welcome.
I have stated this over and over everywhere I go. Atheist is a term made up by those who made up a god. Everyone is an atheist when they are born. You have to be brainwashed to believe in a god.

This is normally the part where I say, "Welcome to the Dark Side." You're probably old enough to be my master, though.

Welcome aboard. I didn't really get the whole god thing either, I always thought it was a joke. It's only recently that I started to realise some people actually believe that nonsense  :-s

Welcome. Was in the Navy in New London 1969-72, so you can guess at my age. Love Connecticut.

Me too. I remember wishing, when I was a child, that someone would let me in on the joke. I still find it baffling that people living in a developed nation in the 21st century believe in obvious fairytales.

And, WELCOME, ROBERT!

Welcome to the forum
We don't argue here, ever. We are just one big happy family.

I meant argument in the denotative sense rather than the connotative sense. I will engage in discussions in which reasons are advanced for and against some proposition or proposal. (Definition from TheSage's English Dictionary and Thesaurus.)

Hey there

I would find it truly remarkable for anyone to live without hearing of some organised religion, either being born into it, seeing it on tv or having someone knock at your door to convert you.

Welcome, Robert--that is if it is appropriate for me to welcome you--were are the same age, board wise. :)  But welcome anyway.  And I do look forward to those arguments that you have offered to start. :)
