CrucifyCindy ... yes, vegetarians are the ultimate "you never expected this" threat.  Hitler was a vegetarian too.  It is the watermelon seeds you swallowed, they are still inside you!  Did you ever see the Japanese film, "Attack Of The Mushroom People" ... said to compete with "Attack Of The Killer Tomatoes" as worst film of all time.  But I have to admit, mushrooms are fungi ... maybe they are the overlords of the Pod People.

In America, ketchup is considered a vegetable in the food triangle for school children ... maybe that is part of their diabolical plan!

The short answer atheists give is that they don't take Eastern Philosophy (religion, etc) seriously.  The best atheists can do is cherry pick and claim the rest of them are like this.  I don't think an Atheist would win an argument against them, so therefore would not bother trying to engage.

Hard to keep up with this guy's intellect. 
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent,
Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?

I think something get's lost in translation; as far as I know no atheist I've met has any issue with Eastern philosophy but rather Eastern mysticism. The morals I think most atheists would actually generally agree with, but the logics and logistics of how Eastern mysticism attempts to arrive at them are open to question, as it should be. No one should have to accept any one's word on how the world should be, and even the Buddha was reportedly strongly opposed to dogma.

Old thread but an interesting one.  I think the original post suggests that the poster didn't know a lot about atheism.
