*in agreement                    I'm sure that Unseen and I are delighted that this one exists, chuckles

*dependent                       OK, check that box too

*following any rules           So that's what I'll tell the nice policeman next time....

*repetitive                          Clearly you haven't met my (atheist) mum

*aiming towards a goal       Why not?  What have goals and atheism got in common?

*nor should they preach     Fair enough, although isn't this post a bit.... instructive? *smiles

Ah, you mean a spiritual goal.  I'm on board with that. You'd think, listening to some of the Christians here in the US, that their goal was to get to heaven.  All Christians go to heaven, by the way.  This makes any alternative sound preferable.

My thoughts to them are, go! go to heaven and go there fast.  Right now would be a good time.

That woman would sound weird in a London pub, I'd agree.  But here in the Land of Labels, she might be called an Antitheist (when she wasn't busy being called a Muslim and a Satanist)  I kid you not, I watched a clip of a TV interview with Romney voters during a Romney Rally, and a reasonably well presented elderly woman was adamant about describing Obama as "a foreigner, a Muslim and an atheist".  The interviewer said, "Muslim AND atheist? Are you sure?".  Apparently she was, and repeated it emphatically, several times.

I couldn't wrap my head around a Muslim atheist! I still can't :)

You must not have ever been to Turkey, then.  When I was there, I had so many people tell me that they are atheists, but then in the next breath they'd tell me that I need to read the Koran because it holds the truth of the universe, and everything was "Inshallah" this and that.  It was the strangest thing.  But I guess it's similar to going to England where no one really believes in God, but everyone's Anglican.  *shrug*

Gee whiz Crissy talk about indoctrination!!!!!!! WTH

Nice! Nabbing that, thanks!

lol

I wish I could study the Bible, apologetics, philosophy, etc. and become better able to argue point by point with Christians, but I don't want to.  ; )

Me too, I have to agree.

I don't want to either. I also agree.

I just like laughing at their beliefs. It's so funny to me. Their reactions.

I was just being a smart-ass, Kris.  I bastardized one of my favorite lines from a tv show... when Phoebe on Friends says, "Oh I wish I could, but I don't want to."  

Ironically, I AM a Phoebe!  Sad, but true.  Yesterday at work I was heard to say, "Hey!  I found my missing sausage!"
