So as fellow atheist you do you express your beliefs around loved ones and friends?

 

For example, I express my self often, by posting a lot of articles about atheism on facebook that I see around the net, to show my friends some of the causes related to atheism I believe and often my sheer disappointment when I hear something incredibly stupid done in the name of theism.

 

I also post quotes and thoughts about my disbelief on my wonderful facebook.

 

I evenutally want to get a few T-shirts, because I've become rather fearless in my thoughts and do not yield to social norms (In my parts) of either being Christian or quiet.

Facebook posts as well here.. I do tend to berate a few select people directly though... lol

I did that for some time. But now I save the beratement for when people say something incredibly stupid.

For example I poked at one of my friends who said "You either Love jesus, or you hate him..." I had to add "Some people jsut don't give a flying F***"

hah Great addition!
I am like this too. I post things on facebook a lot. I never go to others pages and get all "god doesn't exist!" But I get people who say I "shove your beliefs down our throats!"
I have always preferred the personal approach and attempt to steer a discussion into the field of faith so as to pose questions that the faithful may have a difficult time answering and in the hope that they will see just how off target they are in their thinking. This is especially pleasant when they are with their children, I have had acquaintances jokingly chastise me since, following our discussion, their children were asking questions too. And every once in a while a christian will state something rather profound, thus helping me understand their faith better.

I just tell them straight away-- if they don't like it, there is nothing i can do.
