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